Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is a HpHT well?

    • A.

      It has nothing to do with drilling

    • B.

      Higher Part of The Well

    • C.

      A well with high Temperatures and Pressure

    • D.

      Well with high production and long lifetime

    Correct Answer
    C. A well with high Temperatures and Pressure
    Explanation
    An HPHT well refers to a well that operates under high temperatures and pressures. This means that the well is subjected to extreme conditions, which can pose various challenges during drilling and production. High temperatures and pressures can affect the integrity of the wellbore and require specialized equipment and techniques to ensure safe and efficient operations.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Where do we typically find the HpHT wells?

    • A.

      Offshore Africa

    • B.

      Oilsands in Canada

    • C.

      Onshore Shales in America

    Correct Answer
    A. Offshore Africa
    Explanation
    HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) wells are typically found offshore Africa. This region is known for its vast offshore oil and gas reserves, and many of these reserves are located in HPHT environments. HPHT wells are characterized by extreme pressures and temperatures, often exceeding 15,000 psi and 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Offshore Africa offers the necessary geological conditions and infrastructure to safely drill and operate HPHT wells, making it a prominent location for such operations.

    What can a Kick lead to?

    • A.

      More Production

    • B.

      A New Reservoir

    • C.

      A Blow Out

    • D.

      Lower Production

    Correct Answer
    C. A Blow Out
    Explanation
    A kick in the context of oil drilling refers to the influx of formation fluids (such as oil or gas) into the wellbore. This can occur when the pressure from the formation exceeds the pressure exerted by the drilling mud. A blowout, on the other hand, is a sudden and uncontrolled release of formation fluids from the well. Therefore, a kick can potentially lead to a blowout, making it the correct answer.

    ROP is an important factor when drilling, what does it mean?

    • A.

      Rate of Production

    • B.

      Rate of Penetration

    • C.

      Rate of Pressure

    • D.

      Remote Operated Platform

    Correct Answer
    B. Rate of Penetration
    Explanation
    ROP stands for Rate of Penetration, which is a crucial factor in drilling operations. It refers to the speed at which a drill bit penetrates the rock or formation being drilled. The higher the ROP, the faster the drilling process, which is desirable as it saves time and costs. ROP depends on various factors such as the type of rock, drilling equipment, weight on bit, and drilling fluid properties. By monitoring and optimizing the ROP, drilling engineers can improve drilling efficiency and maximize productivity.

    Where is the BOP placed?

    • A.

      In the Reservoir

    • B.

      Together with the BHA

    • C.

      Top of the well

    • D.

      In the CMC

    Correct Answer
    C. Top of the well
    Explanation
    The BOP (Blowout Preventer) is placed at the top of the well. This is a safety device used in drilling operations to prevent the uncontrolled release of oil or gas from the well. By placing the BOP at the top of the well, it can quickly and effectively shut off the flow of fluids in case of an emergency or blowout. This location allows for easy access and control of the BOP, ensuring the safety of the well and the surrounding environment.

  • 6. 

    Why do we use casing?

    • A.

      Maintain Wellbore integrity

    • B.

      To support the platform

    • C.

      To keep fish out of well

    • D.

      To enhance production

    Correct Answer
    A. Maintain Wellbore integrity
    Explanation
    Casing is used in order to maintain wellbore integrity. Wellbore integrity refers to the stability and strength of the wellbore, which is crucial for the overall integrity and safety of the well. Casing provides structural support to the well and prevents the collapse of the wellbore walls. It also helps in isolating different formations and preventing the mixing of fluids. Casing also helps in preventing the leakage of fluids from the well and protects it from external contaminants. Overall, casing plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity of the wellbore and ensuring the safe and efficient production of oil or gas.

    This equipment is a part of the circulation system on a rig. But what is this?

    • A.

      Offshore Printer

    • B.

      VSM Multi-Sizer Shaker

    • C.

      Topdrive

    • D.

      Catwalk Machine

    Correct Answer
    B. VSM Multi-Sizer Shaker
    Explanation
    The VSM Multi-Sizer Shaker is a piece of equipment that is part of the circulation system on a rig. It is used to separate and remove solid particles from drilling fluid, ensuring that the fluid can be reused and maintaining the efficiency of the drilling process.

  • 8. 

    What is tripping?

    • A.

      Running Pipe out of hole

    • B.

      Drilling Operation

    • C.

      Other word used for fishing operations

    Correct Answer
    A. Running Pipe out of hole
    Explanation
    Tripping refers to the process of running the pipe out of the hole during drilling operations. This is done to remove the drill string, which consists of the drill pipe and other tools, from the wellbore. Tripping is an essential part of drilling as it allows for various operations such as changing the drill bit, adding or removing pipe sections, and conducting maintenance or repairs. It is a crucial step in the drilling process and is necessary to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of the well.

    What is break even?

    • A.

      When you produce the same amount of oil and gas

    • B.

      The price of oil/gas where a project is economically positiv

    • C.

      The connection place between pipe

    • D.

      Area where well meets reservoir

    Correct Answer
    B. The price of oil/gas where a project is economically positiv
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The price of oil/gas where a project is economically positive." This refers to the point at which the revenue generated from selling oil or gas equals the total costs incurred in producing it. At this point, there is no profit or loss, and the project becomes financially viable. It is an important concept in determining the profitability and sustainability of oil and gas projects.

    The surface casing is used to:

    • A.

      isolate freshwater zones so that they are not contaminated during drilling and completion

    • B.

      Connect riser and well head

    • C.

      To enhance production of hydrocarbons

    • D.

      Kill well when needed

    Correct Answer
    A. isolate freshwater zones so that they are not contaminated during drilling and completion
    Explanation
    The surface casing is used to isolate freshwater zones so that they are not contaminated during drilling and completion. This is important to prevent any contamination of the freshwater sources, ensuring their safety and availability for human consumption and other purposes. By creating a barrier with the surface casing, any potential pollutants or fluids used during drilling and completion processes are prevented from entering the freshwater zones, thus preserving their integrity.
