Title: Computer Program For Directional Drilling Design
Author: Musa, Mojahid Abualgasim; Ahmed, Mosab Mohammed; Yusuf, Mohammed Ahmed
Abstract: Directional drilling is a very costly and complicated operation and so every step during this operation must be well planned and designed accurately , because any mistakes will lead to a great loss of time , money and effort , and by designing this software we are trying to avoid these mistakes. The objective of this project is to achieve all necessary survey calculations of the well trajectory design for all the directional drilling well profiles, in addition to give the user a clear visualization of the well trajectory through plotting of chart in top view and side view as well as 3D chart for survey and plan purposes. A software called CDD (Computerized Directional Drilling) employing the minimum curvature method was developed to achieve these calculations and therefore minimize the uncertainty and risks related to hitting a predetermined target. Then a case study was made to determine the accuracy of the software, and then economic analysis was made to show the effect of directional drilling on the drilling economics
