Drilling and oilfield integration technologies

Drilling projects, whether they are mining, large tunnel or oil projects. They all require a certain amount of precision in terms of both management and pressure. The performance of a borehole varies depending on how well the electronics and hydraulics fit together.

The operating principle of an exploratory borehole

Energy extraction technologies are a great help in drilling. Drilling consists of inserting rods into the subsoil of a deposit by injecting a specific mud. The goal is to remove rocks and gases. In order to delimit the deposit in question, it is necessary to drill in different areas. The removed elements contain either oil or gas. The depths of a drilling field can reach hundreds of meters. Among the tools needed to explore a borehole are the derrick and the drill bit. The drill bit is used to drill the large hole that allows the exploitation of underground resources.

Drilling mud

Along with oilfield technology, there is also drilling mud. Drilling mud is essential when drilling the hole. It is composed of clay and water. These elements are processed to make a homogeneous mixture. To do this, chemicals are used. It is essential to control the quality of the drilling mud to ensure the best operation of the drilling. The mud should not be too thick or too light. In the first case, if it is too heavy, the mud could enter the reservoirs. In the second case, it could cause a dangerous blowout. This operation must be carried out by specialists with better expertise.

The oil field

Oil drilling techniques are necessary for the exploitation of an oil deposit. Modern systems such as geophysics and geology do not lighten the drilling process. It remains a complex operation. In order for an oil development project to be profitable, the land must contain enough oil. Otherwise, the cost of drilling could increase. New technologies for oil production are now evolving. It is now possible to drill several horizontal wells from a single borehole. Specialists have improved the creation of drill bits. Noting, however, that horizontal drilling is a technique that requires the use of large rigs. The latter require a fairly high investment cost.
