About the intellectual system of prevention of complications in the construction of wells on land and at sea created at OGRI RAS

Alali Walid, Eremin N.A.

DOI: 10.24412/2076-6785-2023-1-27-32

The article describes an intelligent system for preventing complications during the construction of wells on land and at sea, created at the OGRI RAS. Intelligent systems for preventing complications when drilling wells are designed to warn the driller in advance about the possibility of violating the normal drilling regime. Intelligent systems to prevent complications during the construction of wells help to increase the productive time and economic efficiency of drilling oil and gas wells. Large volumes of geodata from geological and technological measurement stations during drilling vary from tens to hundreds of terabytes, respectively, on land and at sea. The creation of neural network modeling software components is aimed at identifying hidden patterns in big data sets from geological and technological measurement stations in real time.

Materials and methods
When creating the system, sets of big volumes of data from geological and technological measurement stations in Russia and abroad were used. For each type of complication, procedures were carried out for normalization and labeling of big volumes of geodata. The corrected historical Big geodatasets served as the basis for training neural networks on new geodatasets. An innovative approach to the collection of heterogeneous geodata was used. The main stages of the approach were as follows: the collection of big geodata obtained using sensors built into the drilling rig; formation of simulation data sets using
a drilling simulator; use of geological and geophysical data obtained during geological exploration; creation of test and training sets of geodata of drilling parameters; development of algorithms for cleaning Big sets of geodata using a pre-processing software module from noisy, missed geodata; clustering and visualization of large geodata (hook weight, penetration rate, drilling fluid consumption, torque, etc.). Python and Pandas libraries have become effective tools for building complex statistical models that allow you to efficiently and accurately predict, diagnose, analyze big geodata in order to improve well construction productivity.

Features of the application of the directional drilling method for laying field pipelines

Sheikin V.A.

DOI: 10.24412/2076-6785-2021-6-75-78

The article discusses the directional drilling method when pipelines intersect existing communications. The use of an alternative type of engineering survey GPR survey method to identify hidden complications is justified. At the same time, the GPR survey excludes the discrete nature of the soil mass studies and gives us fully the geological characteristics for designing transitions by the directional drilling method.

Materials and methods
The authors used the actual data for one of the design objects TomskNIPIneft JSC and the results of the geo-radiation survey. The survey reliably showed the presence of compacted objects and decompressed zones. As a result, the optimal trajectory for the underpass was chosen by the method of directional drilling.

Rodivilov D.B., Nezhdanov A.A., Shtol A.V.

DOI: 10.24412/2076-6785-2021-2-17-20

The Senonian exploration project at the edvezhy field (Western Siberia) will allow the study of a complex of silicite rocks of the lower Berezovskaya subformation containing hard-to-recover gas reserves. A feature of these deposits is the developed system of tectonic faults. However, the results of interpretation of seismic data are not able to provide the required accuracy in determining the boundaries and amplitudes of dislocations. As a result, the drilling of directional wells carried out in conditions of increased risks. The paper presents a real production experience of drilling a horizontal wellbore 6C in conditions of low-amplitude tectonic faults. A methodological technique is described, the use of which made it possible to identify the tectonic block boundary in real time according to telemetry data of the downhole LWD-system.

Material and methods
The method for identifying the boundaries of tectonic faults in the process of drilling horizontal wells based on the operational involvement of telemetry data from the downhole LWD system (gamma-ray logging data) to build a correlation with the pilot borehole. Correlation performed by means of an algorithm for identifying a set of sequential correlation layers and reference shale strata. The results shown as a detailed correlation graphical diagram. Based on the shift of the reference boundaries relative to the data of the pilot shaft and the geological model, conclusions drawn about the location and amplitude of the tectonic disturbance.

Regularities of the distribution of lost circulation areas in single reefs of the depression zone of the Kama-Kinel downfold system

Shipovskiy K.A., Tsirkova V.S., Koval M.E., Kozhin V.N.

DOI: 10.24412/2076-6785-2021-1-34-39

The article presents the results of investigations of the causes of total and catastrophic losses of drilling mud during drilling of wells in the reef massif of the Western dome of the Yuzhno-Orlovskoye oil field. The regularities of the distribution of intervals of mud losses of different intensity in a single buried reef of the Upper Frasnian and Famenno-Tournaisian times have been established. It is noted that total and catastrophic losses in a single buried reef are confined to the zones of the pre-reef plume, consisting of detrital carbonate rocks. Partial losses occur in the intervals of cavernous-fractured carbonate reservoirs of organogenic structure. The absence or insignificant absorptions are the features of carbonates of the bioherm core of the buried reef. It is shown that the development of a geomechanical model of an organogenic structure based on the features of the lithologic and facies zones of the reef massif makes it possible to increase the accuracy of predicting the zones of absorption during well construction designing. The research results show that the system analysis and generalization of theoretical and field geological, geophysical and technical information allows to determine the nature of losses of drilling mud in organogenic structures, to predict the zones of possible problemms and to develop effective measures for their timely prevention and elimination during well drilling at the Kama-Kinel downfold system fields.

Material and methods
Survey made by gathering, review and collation of the theoretical and field data to determine patterns of the loss zones throughout reefal buildup.

One of the topical issues of drilling directional and horizontal wells with the use of downhole telemetry systems with an electromagnetic communication channel is the use of an electrical delimiter. It is part of the transmission system as a constructive basis for conducting electric and electromagnetic well logging while drilling. To solve this problem, it is necessary to evaluate the radial range of electrical probing near the well zone in order to determine the informativeness of the received data. A qualitative analysis of the structure of the probing electric field of the circuit and the calculation model of the logging is performed.
