  • Montney Shale Case Study

    the surface hole. Also, we will ignore the strat well (A-9-J/94-G-2) due to its lack of efficiency and focus on exploration. Regarding well D9-J, the information was very limited and thus we have emphasized it accordingly. For the lithology, we will assume that every well within the pad will encounter each formation at the same time. Since the 1950s, the Montney Formation has been the target of oil and gas exploration. Based on the research we obtained we will provide a recommendation to Progress Energy to better the drilling program or well design. With an understanding of how and why certain wells did better or worse than each other we can make a conclusion on why this occurred and what we can do to enhance the performance of these wells. Purpose Our goal by the end of this report is essentially to figure out a way to better the drilling operations within the eight wells we are focusing on. We may suggest a different well design or changes to the drilling program if we find anything. By focusing on three main hole sections shown in figure 1, we will be able to conclude what went wrong and have a better understanding so we could provide a recommendation. We will cover why Progress Energy used impregnated bits at certain depths and why they did use those kinds of bits. At around 1700 meters, all the wells were using an impregnated bit. We will be considering why they did and how they made the decision to change to an impregnated bit. We will also be looking at where…

  • Fracking Or Hydraulic Fracturing

    In a rural town where population is not large where natural gas is found beneath. The perfect location for the process of fracking. Fracking or Hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling down into the earth and releasing a high pressure water mix to obtain natural gas. Fracking began as an experiment in 1947 and started commercially in 1950 and since over two million “fracking jobs” have been done since. The process of fracking is very controversial around the world and has even been…

  • The Consequences Of Drilling In ANWR

    In the contest, President Bush supported drilling in ANWR, while the Defenders of Wildlife opposed it. President Bush stated that “advances in technology [would] allow us to open up new areas to environmentally responsible exploration for oil and natural gas… developing this tiny section of ANWR could eventually yield up to a million barrels of oil per day. That’s a million barrels less that we’ve depended on from foreign sources of energy.” – (End quote) The Defenders of Wildlife countered…

  • Negative Effects Of Oil Drilling

    resources here in America. Although, we are still years from it the U.S. has cut foreign oil imports in the past decade by nearly 60 percent. Despite the harmful effects drilling for oil has on the environment, and wildlife there are still many reason the U.S continues to import. Considering oil has been the back bone to the world’s economy for decades, we need to take control by putting regulations on all oil drilling globally. Altogether the world needs recognize the detrimental effects…

  • Dangers Of Offshore Oil Drilling

    How would the oceans change without offshore oil drilling? Oceans would be cleaner and would have more organisms. About twenty-seven oil spills occur daily (Nardo) and about twenty-five million gallons of oil spill each year (Yeardley). This is clearly a problem because all the organisms and the environment are in danger. Offshore oil drilling shouldn’t be allowed because it causes oil spills, harms nature, and contaminates water. Offshore oil drilling cause oil spills. Oil spills threaten…

  • Wilkinson Case Study

    On 10/31/16, in conjunction with McLaren Independent Adjuster Mr. Larry Nixon, an inspection was conducted at a work site where the insured, Superior Well Drillers had been drilling a water well for a client at Avenue 40, and Road 192, Delano, CA. The investigator with the assistance of Mr. Nixon was to verify what the insured has so far done and accomplished, after the loss when drilling equipment fell into the hole which the insured was drilling for their client.

  • Oil Drilling Research Paper

    Oil drilling in environmentally sensitive areas is a very controversial topic. Oil is very important and we depend on oil for many daily uses. Although we have developed other alternative sources of oil, such as solar power, solar power only operates when receiving power from the sun. People depend on oil even with the use of solar power. The use of oil has been the number one source of energy since the early 1900’s. People generally do not realize how much they truly depend on oil. Without the…

  • Brrinkerhoff International Case Study

    a Canadian Oil and Natural Gas company, located in Northern, Calgary, Alberta, and Northeastern British Columbia on the Western Sedimentary Basin, an area with multi-trillion cubic feet (mcf) of proven gas reserves (Barnes, 1994). Brinkerhoff International Inc. owned and operated seven oil and gas drilling rigs, with six of them operational and the seventh was being reactivated (Rig #22). Rig #22 was brought back into operation because of increased demand for oil and gas due to a booming…

  • Deep Oil Spill Research Paper

    involved in the deep sea oil drilling are evident and should not be ignored. An understanding of the process and its impact on the environment helps in reducing environmental hazards associated with oil spills. Through offshore oil drilling, an alternative means of discovering oil reserves occurs. The exploration of previously inaccessible oil reserves increases the production of oil; this in turn, lowers its price through high supply. There are several laws and regulations dictating the…
