Precisely controlled well bore trajectory using various techniques, tools, and technologies to intersect particular subsurface targets at predetermined coordinates. Furnished daily cost and operational reports to the Operator and directional home-office. Tracked and maintained inventory. Shipped and received inventory to and from the well-site.
- Efficiently drilled conventional and horizontal directional, including ERD, well profiles with TVDs in excess of 10,000' and build rates ranging from 2 deg./100' to 45 deg./100'. Completed slim-hole re-entries with gyro and steering-tool orientation. Completed many CBM horizontal natural gas wells.
- Executed cased and open-hole whip-stock placement and orientation for effective well bore kick-off and side-tracks. Monitored drill-string torque/drag and optimized drilling parameters to maximize drilling rate with oil-based, water-based and under-balanced air / nitrogen foam-injection systems.
- Exposed to various down-hole geo-steering and MWD / LWD tools including Near-Bit Inclination and Natural Gamma Ray, Array Wave Resistivity, Density Neutron, Dynamic Pressure Monitoring, and Electro-Magnetic survey equipment.
- Assisted in BHA design and drilling jar placement. Offered suggestions to the well-site Operator for proper drill-bit applications. Sustained efficient drilling operations in absence of the Operator's Representative.
