ABSTRACT: Slimhole Short-Radius Drilling and Its Applications

A brief overview of short-radius horizontal drilling will be discussed as well as its specific, proven applications. The following material will be presented and reviewed: short-radius horizontal objectives, the short-radius bottom hole assembly and related drilling equipment, geographic regions and target formations drilled, drilling parameters associated with specific applications, cost savings associated with short-radius horizontal drilling, and typical completion techniques of these applications. In closing, a Kern County, California (Belridge field) short-radius horizontal case history will be discussed.
