Working Guide to Drilling Equipment and Operations
By William Lyons
Drilling technology has evolved in order to get at the increasingly
harder to find oil, and in a more environmentally friendly way.
Successful drilling operations require blending many technologies.
Drilling equipment and procedures have a unique language that must be
conquered in order to understand drilling operations.
Guide to Drilling Equipment and Operations provides a fundamental, basic
knowledge of the intricacies of drilling fluid, drilled solids
management, drill bits, drill string design, directional drilling,
cementing, casing, hydraulic optimization, and a discussion of
predominant problems such as stuck pipe and lost circulation. Background
information, such as: clay structure (needed to understand well bore
instability and drilling fluids), discussion of pressure and pressure
effects, the theory behind factors affecting drilling performance, and
rock failure under pressure, are included to enhance the understanding
of the drilling process and problems.
