Rotterdam to FOIL - PART II ash6666: I think it is very unlikely they will go for this weekend. Just a feeling you have, or the result of a consultation with a Floracle
Rotterdam to FOIL - PART II I think it is very unlikely they will go for this weekend.
Rotterdam to FOIL - PART II younginvestor95: presumably they wouldn’t like to attempt any work during the night… Broadly speaking (I am after all from Manchester originally), there will be two sorts of people on the AM, people who get seasick and those that don’t. The seasick are the landsmen engineers who long for the ground (and their stomachs) to stop heaving and the sailors who only went to sea to `sea the world’. The landsmen will do anything to get home to their loved ones, so working all night will be just fine if it brings forward the date they can leave. The sailors are used to a watch system, remember `the ships that pass in the night’. So the AM will start hooking up at lunchtime on Saturday and will continue until it is either complete or the weather (or other problem) prevents any further attempts. But with any luck it will not take more than a few Flours
Rotterdam to FOIL - PART II Thought I would give an update on potential weather windows… The closest one seems to be Saturday 16th from midday to Sunday 16th at midday, However this only gives roughly 6 hours on each day for hook-up imo as presumably they wouldn’t like to attempt any work during the night… YI
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 @Flossoffa “The Scotian Basin comprises Mesozoic and Cenozoic sediments overlying a Paleozoic basement, …” Thanks, Floss. Not sure that I understand all these ‘’…ozoics’, but a great read in highlighting the complexities of which we speak. Thanks again for sharing. - Kr,A. - LLV
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 Oops, that may not be the case; see: geoconvention.com 404_GC2014_Overpressure_Seal_Integrity_and_Reservoir_Connectivity_Scotian_Basin.pdf 504.64 KB Often obstructed fluid migration pathways are also a factor, and more than one of the above reasons contributes to the formation of overpressure in a system. To maintain overpressure within a reservoir, compartmentalization is required, where a petroleum accumulation is separated into several discrete fluid/pressure compartments, which occurs when hydrocarbon migration is prevented across sealed Floundaries
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 lawven2: Here is a link Thanks lawven, it was an interesting summary of the difficulties that drillers face. Fortunately, having now got the pressure data from Lamcaster, Dr T will be better placed to ensure that the mud density employed is neither too heavy nor too light but as near as possible to ideal (as prescribed by GoldiFlocks)
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 @Happy_To_Learn “…although I am sure the link you posted is highly relevant and interesting, I will save reading it for another day, lol. …” Reciprocal Best Wishes, HTL. We are all well here, thank you. Don’t blame you one bit for postponing the reading of the Wiki Article. The indicated mathematical formulae alone is enough to put you off your morning cornflakes, if not your HUR Shares! -Kr,A. - LLV
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 Hi lawven2, I hope you are well. With all that has been going on recently, I find myself being able to fret about only one thing at a time. Until they manage to stick this buoy where it is supposed to go, and make sure it stays there, although I am sure the link you posted is highly relevant and interesting, I will save reading it for another day, lol. When hopefully Bluewater will have got their act together. All the best. HTL
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 As are interested As a generality, we tend to go-on somewhat badly (I am included here!) when what appears to be an undesirable (but avoidable) event takes place. However, Bobsson’s interesting speculation on the ‘spudding’ of the GWA’s has caused me to re-visit on the complexities (both mathematical and physical) of Oil Well Control. The result of that re-visit is to increase the level of my tolerance to these unforced errors, howsoever frustrating -and expensive - they may be to our stressed finances. Here is a link, of which you already may be aware: en.wikipedia.org Oil well control Oil well control is the management of the dangerous effects caused by the unexpected release of formation fluid, such as natural gas and/or crude oil, upon surface equipment of oil or gas drilling rigs and escaping into the atmosphere. Technically, oil well control involves preventing the formation fluid, usually referred to as kick, from entering into the wellbore during drilling. Formation fluid can enter the wellbore if the pressure exerted by the column of drilling fluid is not great enough ... Caveat: Wikipedia (not WikiLeaks!) is for the Layman and not for the Rocket Scientist, imo. Kr,A. - LLV
Warwick & Lincoln 3 wells drilling 2019 Three wells drilling March to October 2019, 1x Lincoln and 2x Warwick wells. I think the Lincoln drill will be the first of the three and if (when) successful it will be tied back to the AM as a producer. So which will be first, the spudding of the GWA well or first oil from Lancaster? Both events likely to be in April, but I think spudding will beat first oil.
Back from the shops ash6666: A company RBD have a share in have just had a duster in the Moray Firth Basin though another one is currently being drilled. They need a good geoFlogist

Back from the shops @Empty_Sporran Can not spend anymore on these now so would be very happy with a full company take-out at about 75 - 80p. GOOD GRIEF!!! - LLV
Back from the shops ash6666: I hope they have lots of games. Don’t be silly, they will be hard at work! `The UK’s Moray Firth Basin is a proven province where significant oil and gas volumes have been discovered over the last four decades. Our outlook assumes companies will continue to focus on prospects in the Late Jurassic/Cretaceous play as this is where the material volumes are thought to exist. The giant Buzzard oil discovery of 2001 demonstrated the potential for large hydrocarbon finds within stratigraphic traps in the basin. While exploring for stratigraphic traps in the basin carries potential for larger finds, these prospects are high risk due to the difficulty in identifying hydrocarbon-bearing reserFloirs
