CONSTANT-CURVATURE EQUATIONS IMPROVE DESIGN OF 3-D WELL TRAJECTORY

Boyun Guo, Robert L. Lee New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology Socorro, N.M. Stefan Miska University of Tulsa Tulsa Three dimensional (3-D) drilling trajectory equations derived from the concept of constant curvature can improve the design of economical well trajectories and determine the tool face deflection in directional drilling.
