INCREASING WATER-DRILLING HYDRAULICS HELPS IMPROVE DRILLING PERFORMANCE

James Andrew Sutherland Shell Canada Ltd. Calgary Higher annular velocities are instrumental in reducing total drilling time. The higher annular velocities maintain a clean well to help prevent well bore problems. Additionally, maximizing bit hydraulic horsepower and bit impact force result in higher penetration rates in Canadian hardrock-formation wells.
