Feasibility of Particle Jet as a Drilling Medium for the Development of Deep Complicated Oil-Gas Reservoir
The technical problems existing in deep well drilling are becoming more and more predominant during the exploration and development of oil-gas field. The poor formation drillability, low drilling rate and complicated pressure system cause the underground accidents frequent, extend well construction cycle, and make the cost of the project much higher. Therefore, it is urgent to develop new technologies to improve the efficiency of the exploration and development in deep unconventional oil-gas reservoir. The particle jet technology is a new energy-saving way which has a broad application prospect. It can take the way of sucking in particles in annulus space to cycle use the particles, and promote the drilling rate. The feasibility of particle jet as a drilling medium is verified by the theoretical and experimental study, which provides the basis for the design of particle jet tool.
