    Underbalanced Drilling: Limits and Extremes

    By: Unknown

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The present crude oil and natural gas reservoirs around the world have depleted conventional production
    levels. To continue enhancing productivity for the remaining mature reservoirs, drilling decision-makers could
    no longer rely on traditional balanced or overbalanced methods of drilling. Derived from conventional air
    drilling, underbalanced drilling is increasingly necessary to meet today’s energy and drilling needs. While more
    costly and extreme, underbalanced drilling can minimize pressure within the formation, increase drilling rate
    of penetration, reduce formation damage and lost circulation, making mature reservoirs once again viable and
    more productive. To further explain this essential drilling procedure, Bill Rehm, an experienced legend in drilling
    along with his co-editors, has compiled a handbook perfect for the drilling supervisor. Underbalanced Drilling:
    Limits and Extremes, written under the auspices of the IADC Technical Publications Committee, contain many
    great features and contributions including:
    • Real case studies shared by major service companies to give the reader guidelines on what might
    happen in actual operations
    • Questions and answers at the end of the chapters for upcoming engineers to test their knowledge
    • Common procedures, typical and special equipment involved, and most importantly, the limits and
    challenges that still surround this technology.
