Wellbore strengthening

Introduction: Enhancing Wellbore Integrity

In the challenging environment of oil and gas exploration, maintaining the structural integrity of wellbores is crucial. Vertechs Group, a leader in energy technology, has developed innovative solutions for wellbore strengthening, addressing some of the most demanding conditions in drilling operations.


Understanding Wellbore Strengthening

Wellbore strengthening refers to techniques aimed at enhancing the strength and stability of wellbores during drilling. This process is critical in preventing issues like fluid leakage, wellbore instability, and blowouts. Utilizing various materials and methods, wellbore strengthening ensures the structural soundness of the wellbore, thereby mitigating risks associated with drilling.


Vertechs Group’s RWSS Technology

Vertechs' Real-time Wellbore Strengthening Solution (RWSS) is at the forefront of wellbore strengthening technologies. RWSS is designed to bolster wellbore stability in real-time, particularly in unstable formations caused by factors like low formation pressure and fractured formations. The patented on-site evaluation apparatus of RWSS plays a key role in monitoring and maximizing the effectiveness of wellbore strengthening materials.


Features and Benefits of RWSS

Instantaneous Loss Prevention: RWSS forms an ultra-low permeability film at the fluid-rock interface, preventing losses and collapse effectively.

Real-time Performance Evaluation: The HPIT (High Pressure Invasion Tester) apparatus enables real-time performance evaluation and invasion control optimization.

Compatibility: RWSS is compatible with various mud systems, including WBM, OBM, and SBM.

Field-Proven Effectiveness: In challenging wells, RWSS has been proven to substantially reduce non-productive time (NPT) related to wellbore instability and induced losses.


Case Study: RWSS in Action

A notable implementation of RWSS was in a high-density water-based mud (~2.3 SG) PetroChina well in mid Sichuan. The well faced complex challenges like wellbore instability and significant losses. Post implementation of RWSS, there were no reported NPT issues related to wellbore instability or losses, demonstrating the effectiveness of the solution in enhancing well safety and operational efficiency.
