MPD Simulator for iPhone and iPad

MPD Simulator

Managed Pressure Drilling

for iPhone and iPad

In Development

Coming soon on the App Store

By Carlos Moura
Note: Updated the Flow Diagram (2016-05-01)

 

This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.

This application provides practical simulations of the Dynamic Well Control on the Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) operations in the oil field services.

With Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD), when kicks occur, they are typically smaller, contained more quickly, and, in some cases, they may be circulated out through MPD equipment without drilling or circulation interruption.

This simulator is the new project based on the Drilling Simulator 2 on our portfolio, but specifically for dynamic well control on onshore and offshore operations (deepwater).

MPD System on this simulator:

1. RCD – Rotating Control Device

2. Annular Preventer (or Drill String Isolation Tool – DSIT)

3. Automated Choke for CBHP (Constant Bottom Hole Pressure)

4. RPD – Rig Pump Diverter

5. BPP – Back Pressure Pump

You can contribute with suggestions for improvement this simulator.

Thanks

Well Control Methods 2 for iPad

Well Control Methods 2 for iPad

 version 1.0

for both iPhone and iPad 

WCMethods2_1024_3

Available_on_the_App_Store_Badge_US_UK_135x40_0824

Also available apps for each method for both iPhone and iPad:

A new project designed for both iPhone and iPad.

This application uses the basic calculations of the methods to control oil wells after the occurrence of kick during drilling operations on floating platforms and landing rigs.

It is an useful tool to import data files to fill kill sheets from our apps: (Driling Hydraulics, Drilling Simulator 1 and 2, Kick Game 1 and 2, Kick Tolerance, LOT Simulator and Well Control Simulator 1 and 2) available for sale in our portfolio on the App Store.

It is can be applied on the field and also help in the understanding of the methods of well control.

Well Control Methods:

– Driller’s Method
– Wait and Weight
– Dynamic Volumetric
– Static Volumetric – Migration / Bleed
– Static Volumetric – Lubricate / Bleed – Top Kill

Others:

– Calculations of Riser Safety Margin;

This app was developed based on existing spreadsheets. There is no comparison with any other software.

Our goal was to create a low-cost application with the help of experts to share with drilling engineers, technicians, drillers, students and teachers of drilling engineering.

There is no intention to replace the professional softwares.

You can contribute with suggestions for improvements, correcting the translation to english, reporting bugs and spreading it to your friends.

Thanks

Well Control – Initial Circulating Pressure on deepwater

Well Control – Initial Circulating Pressure on deepwater

ICP_on_deepwater_001

On deepwater drilling, the subsea bop stack is installed at the well head (on sea bed). In kick condition, the BOP is closed and the flux is deviated to the choke at surface through the choke line. This line has a diameter normally of 3 inches and the frictional pressure losses will increase the pressure at shoe depth. This is a big problem on deepwater wells due to the formation pressure be fragile.

A method to compensate the choke line friction is to decrease the initial choke pressure of this value, monitoring the annulus pressure at the kill pressure gauge instead the choke pressure gauge when bringing the mud pump to slow circulation rate, like on a surface bop well control, and adjusting the choke to set the drill pipe pressure equal to the Initial Circulating Pressure (ICP) calculated by the formula ICP = SIDPP (Shut-in Drill Pipe Pressure) + Pump Pressure @ slow circulating rate when circulating through the drill string with return to the riser.

Some questions:

  1. Why to use the pump pressure with return to the riser if the circulation of the kick is with return to the choke?
  2. Why to set the choke fully open during the circulation to record the choke line friction?
  3. etc.

The answers for these questions are in the calculations in the next slides.
