2. When a drilling project is commenced, two goals are governing allaspects of it.1. The first is to realize the well in a safe manner (personalinjuries, technical problems)2. The second one is to complete it with minimumCostFor making hole, different technologies have been invented(We Focus on Rotary Drilling Technology)Percussion drillingWith mud -> Quick percussion drillingWithout mud -> Canadian drillingRotating bitFull cross-section drillingSurface drivenRotary drillingRotary nozzle drillingSubsurface drivenTurbine drillingPositive displacement motor drillingElectro motor drillingAnnular drillingDiamond coringShot drilling 3.

Tool PusherThe tool pusher supervises all drilling operations and is the leading man of the drilling contractoron location. Along with this supervision duties, he has to co-ordinate company and contractoraffairs.Company ManThe company man is in direct charge of all the companys activities on the rig site. He is responsiblefor the drilling strategy as well as the supplies and services in need. His decisions directly effectthe progress of the well.DrillerThe driller operates the drilling machinery on the rig floor and is the overall supervisor of allfloor men. He is directly responsible to the tool pusher and is the person who is most closelyinvolved in the drilling process. He manipulates from his position at the control console on therig floor brakes, switches, levers and other related controls that influence the drilling parameters.In case of a kick he is the first person to take action by moving the bit off bottom and close theBOP.Floor Man and RoustaboutDuring tripping, the rotary helpers are responsible for handling the lower end of the drill pipe aswell as operating tongs and wrenches to make or break a connection. During other times, theyalso maintain equipment, keep it clean, do painting and in general help where ever help is neededDerrick ManThe derrick man works on the so-called monkey board, a small platform up in the derrick, usuallyabout 90 [ft] above the rotary table. When a connection is made or during tripping operations heis handling and guiding the upper end of the pipe. During drilling operations the derrick man isresponsible for maintaining and repairing the pumps and other equipment as well as keeping tabson the drilling fluid.Mud Engineer, Mud LoggerThe service company who provides the mud almost always sends a mud engineer and a mud loggerto the rig site. They are constantly responsible for logging what is happening in the hole as wellas maintaining the proper mud conditions. 5. According to a wells final depth, it can be classified into:Shallow well: < 2,000 [m]Conventional well: 2,000 [m] - 3,500 [m]Deep well: 3,500 [m] - 5,000 [m]Ultra deep well: > 5,000 [m]With the help of advanced technologies in MWD/LWD and extended reach drilling techniqueshorizontal departures of 10,000+ [m] are possible today (Wytch Farm). 6. Land RigsThe parts of the rig can be grouped into five systems:PowerRotatingHoistingCirculatingControl and measurement 7. The bit is the main critical item of a drilling operation.This does not mean that the bit can make hole alone.To select a bit, some information must be known about the nature of the rocks to be drilled 8. Drill stem consists of three main components:drill collars,drill pipe andKelly. 9. The following are the principal functions of the drill stem:1. Drill stem lowers the bit into the hole and withdraws it2.Part of the drill stem puts weight on the bit so that the bit can penetrate the formations more effectively3.Drill stem transmits a turning, or rotating, action to the bit.4.Drill stem conducts the drilling fluid under pressure from the surface to the bit. 10. The traveling block, crown block and wire line are the three components.The main function is to connect the supporting derrick or mast with the load of pipe to be lowered into or withdraw from the hole. 11. Traveling block is a free moving section of a block and tackle that contains a set of pulleys or sheaves through which the drill line is threaded or revved and is opposite (and under) the crown block (the stationary section). 12. A crown block is the stationary section of a block and tackle. It contains a set of pulleys or sheaves which the drill line (wire rope) is threaded or revved and is opposite and above the traveling block. 13. A mast is also called the standard mast. It is a structure with four supporting legs resting on a square base, the entire work area of the floor is in the derrick square.In contrast, the mast is much slenderer and may be thought of as sitting on one side of the derrick floor or work space. 14. The two main purposes of the draw works are: To lift the pipe out of the holeTo lower the pipe back into of the hole. 15. Blowout preventer (BOP) is the equipment associated with a rig and devices installed at the wellhead to prevent fluids and gasses from unintentionally escaping from the borehole. 16. Centrifuge is the equipment which is used to separate fine silt and sand from the drilling fluid. 17. It is used to provide clockwise rotational force to facilitate the process of drilling a boreholeOperating through drive bushings, the rotary rotates the Kelly and, through it, the drill stem and the bit 18. MAIN FUNCTIONS OF A ROTORY TABLETo rotate the drill stemTo hold devices called slips that support the weigh of the drill stem when the latter is not supported by hook and elevators. 19. Kelly is a long square or hexagonal steel bar with a hole drilled through the middle for a fluid path.The Kelly is used to transmit rotary motion from the rotary table or Kelly bushing to the drill string while allowing the drill string to be lowered or raised during rotation. 20. The Kelly goes through the Kelly bushing, which is driven by the rotary table.The Kelly bushing has an inside profile matching the Kellys outside profile (either square or hexagonal), but with slightly larger dimensions so that the Kelly can freely move up and down inside. 21. Swivel is a mechanical device that must simultaneously suspend the weight of the drill string, provide for rotation of the drill string beneath it while keeping the upper portion stationary, and permit high-volume flow of high- pressure drilling mud from the fixed portion to the rotating portion without leaking 22. MAIN FUNCTIONSSupport the load of the drill stem Allow rotation of the drilling assemblyProvide a passageway for fluid under high pressure to enter the drill stem. 23. Power is provided to the rig by diesel engines, diesel- electric engines, or in some cases, butane engines. Power is transferred from the engines to the different rig systems by belts, chains, and drive shafts on a mechanical rig, or by generated DC electrical power on an electric rig. Power is distributed to the rotary table and mud pumps (34 in Figure 1) while drilling and to the draw works (15) when tripping. 24. he hoisting system includes the parts of the rig that are used to raise the drill stem. The hoisting gear parts include the draw works (15 in Figure 1), crown block (1), and traveling block (4). The draw works is a large winch on which the drill line spools. The drill line is wire rope that is strung between the crown block (a pulley located at the top of the derrick), the traveling block, and the draw works. The drill line can be strung in multiples for a total of 4,6, 8, 10, or 12 lines. More lines means more lifting capacity but a slower running speed. The drill line needs to be cut and slipped at periodic ton-miles to distribute the line wear and stress. A weight indicator (16) is attached to the drill line so that the driller can measure the drill string, slack-off, and pick-up weights. This information helps determine the amount of hole friction and the correct amount of weight to put on the bit. The draw works also transfers power to make up and break out the drill string via the tongs (13 and 14). 25. The derrick supports the crown block and provides a place to stack pipe that is pulled out of the hole. The depth rating of the derrick is related to the size of the rig. The height of the derrick is commonly referred to in multiples of pipe joints (a joint of pipe is approximately 30 ft long). Rigs that can stack double joints of drill pipe are called double derricks, and those that stack three joints are called treble derricks. Part way up the derrick are the monkey board (3) and pipe fingers. The derrick man handles the top end of each stand of pipe from the monkey board during trips. The pipe is racked in the finger boards and tied off to keep it from falling. The derrick substructure (23), the platform under the derrick, is rated by set back capacity; that is, the weight of the drill string stacked in the derrick plus the weight of casing that can be lifted. The height of the substructure is dictated by the height of the blowout preventers (38). The top of the substructure is called the derrick floor. This is the primary working area of the rig.The catwalk is the deck located to the side of the derrick floor and between the pipe racks (22). Joints of drill pipe and casing are rolled from the pipe racks where they are stored on the catwalk and hoisted up through the slide (21) and V-door. The catwalk is also the primary location to process core and assemble wire line logging tools. 26. Circulation of drilling fluid (mud) serves several functions on a rig, including cooling the bit, providing hole stability, and aiding i
