Solids Control and Waste Management for SAGD

Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage = SAGD   “Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD; “Sag-D”) is an enhanced oil recovery technology for producing heavy crude oil and bitumen. It is an advanced form of steam stimulation in which a pair of horizontal wells is drilled into the oil reservoir, one a few metres above the other. -wikipedia

Steps Of Drilling Waste Management

The process of drilling oil and gas wells uses a rotary drill bit that is lubricated by drilling fluids or muds. Drilling mud is used to control subsurface pressures, lubricate the drill bit, stabilize the well bore, and carry the cuttings to the surface, among other functions.

Two Aplication Of Solids Remove For Drilling Optimization to Overcome High Torque

Fine solids resultDrilling optimizationed from formation cuttings were contaminants that mostly caused unstable mud performance. Combination of batch drilling sequence and unsuitable solids removal treatment, led to fine particle accumulation. This is one of the root causes of excessive torque and high ECD throughout the drilling operation.

From drilling fluid properties point of view, it is beneficial to minimize drilled solids content. This can be achieved by mechanical treatment, chemical treatment, dilution, and/or mixing new mud. All the above methods, will lead to additional cost impact. Thus, utilization of proper solids removal was required to balance between mechanical treatment and dilution method to reduce solids at acceptable cost.
