TEMPERATURE RELATED RISKS

HIGH TEMPERATURE - HIGH RISKS - HIGH COSTS

As wells grow in complexity and risk, the need to consider elements beyond the application of a mud cooler becomes essential. Within any drilling system, both temperature and pressure collectively affect the dynamic energy conditions specific to each well.

High pressure, high temperature wells (HPHT) are in fact “HIGH ENERGY” wells. Parameters such as hole size, flow rate, drilling fluid rheology, and geothermal gradient can all have a direct thermal impact on temperature conditions within the wellbore and the surface drilling system. With over 35 years of industry specific well temperature control experience, Drill Cool Systems can increase your ability to safely and successfully help control your temperature related risks.

How Can Drill Cool Help Manage Temperature Related Risks?

THERMAL RISK ASSESSMENT

DETERMINE IF YOUR DRILLING CONDITIONS ARE PUTTING YOUR PROJECT AND PERSONNEL AT RISK

With our Thermal Risk Assessment, together we can determine if your drilling conditions are putting your project and personnel at risk. With a Drill Cool solution our engineers will work closely with your drilling team to ensure overall system safety. We are available from well inception through production to ensure all temperature related risks have been properly characterized and mitigated.

Personnel icon

Protect Personnel

The safety of rig personnel can be at risk due to elevated drilling fluid temperatures. Human skin that comes in contact with drilling fluid or equipment hotter than 65°C (150°F) can result in a serious burn in just a matter of a few seconds.

Maximize Efficiency

The integration of a mud cooler into your high temperature drilling operation can typically result in a 3% to 5% reduction in drilling fluid maintenance costs and promote the greater control of equivalent drilling fluid densities (ECD) throughout the system.

Prevent downtime icon

Prevent Downtime

The Drill Cool System can result in a net costs savings over the duration of the high temperature well by substantially increasing the operational life of mud pump expendables and other surface equipment.

High Temperature Drilling Concerns: Safety and CAPEX

October 10, 2017

Our previous news articles discussed the safety risks encountered by early geothermal drillers in California. They experienced burn hazards and jeopardized well control due to high temperature drilling fluid. These risks are still a problem today for both geothermal and HPHT drilling alike. By reducing the suction and flowline temperatures, these operations are made safer.…

After the first use of the Geo-CoolerTM in 1977, Elwood’s mud coolers were used throughout the rest of the 70’s and 80’s for geothermal projects in California. The engineers and company men involved in these geothermal wells later became the HTHP oil and gas drillers of the early 90s. Due to their experience with the…

The Geysers, California – a geothermal well was being drilled and was unexpectedly hot in the upper sections. At the surface, drilling fluid was flashing and posing a severe safety risk to personnel onsite. The year was 1977 – a time during geothermal drilling’s vast expansion in California. The rigs’ operator lived in Bakersfield and…
