See summaries in appendix 3. Mud pit capacity : Minimum of 3000bls required. This however is unlikely to be accommodated on a platform rig design due to loading conditions.

For high angle wells this would be accounted for in design as too conservative, hence a higher design factor has been used. In reality in high angle wells, each section should be considered at an average hole angle. Drag is also not accounted for in design calculations. In reality torque and drag simulations would have to be conducted modeling field data friction factors known etc. Collapse design factor: 1.15 Burst design factor: 1.15, 1.25 for 13 3/8” section due to requirement for salt section isolation.

This may have to executed © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD. during some operational stages in the life of a well via drilling equipment Bop’s etc. ( e.g. Injectivity test, well stimulation etc.) 5000psi equipment would therefore be chosen and selected if it can fulfill other requirements.

Note: All tension calculations assume that the casing is hanging vertically and in air. For high angle wells, this would be accounted as too conservative in design. A design factor of 1.2 has been for hole angle and wellbore profile to be taken into account. In this design, a value of 150,000lbs over-pull has also been used to account for casing being stuck prior to landing at TD.

Drilling Tubulars selection Drill collar and HWDP selection The critical BHA for design is in the 12 ¼” section. Here higher WOB will be required to drill anticipated formations during tangent and build sections. Build section would incur highest combine loads and worst case stress conditions. It is envisaged that worst case conditions, i.e max WOB, likely buckling conditions would exists at start of section (i.e 32degrees). Drill collar and BHA requirements. Drill collar, BHA, and drillstring component lengths have been determined as follows: Length of Drill collars + BHA components required to drill with max 45000lbs WOB in 12 ¼ @ section. Wob × Df Wdc × Kb × Cosθ 45,000 ×1.1 151× 0.83 × Cos32 = 465 ft (142m) Based on the above 12 drill collars would be required in addition to other BHA components, e.g. mud motor, MWD collar, stabilisers etc. that would make up the additional length required. The operator prefers however in the directional sections of the well, to run a DS1, BHA type 3. I.e. utilising HWDP for available WOB. This is to minimise BHA handling time, reduce stuck pipe likeliness, and run drill collars required for directional control and BHA design. © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD. HWDP required. Based on a drill collar and BHA component length of 120m, the following calculation determines the amount of HWDP required for 35,000WOB (Upper limit of 12 ¼ “ PDC), at an angle of 60degrees (i.e. where cos.θ = 0.5). Note: A t higher angles BHA has a diminishing effect for WOB requirements. 1 Wob × Df Kb × cosθ ⋅ (Ldc ÷ Wdc ) W ( hwdp ) 35000 × 1.1 1 0.83 × cos 60 ⋅ (120m × 3.281 × 148) 53.7 1 = [92,771 − 58,270] 53.7 = 642 ft (21 jts.) If buckling was the limiting factor appendix 4 illustrates that at 60degrees, drill-pipe could also be used to apply WOB up to 53,000lbs before buckling would occur. (available weight from BHA components is only 31,000lbs at 60degrees inclination.)

Note : For a specification of the various API inspection classifications see API standard 7 : ‘Rotary Drilling Equipment’ or the recently released DS-1 ‘Drill stem Design and Inspection specification’. Normal operating conditions During normal drilling operations, the drillstring is subjected to constantly changing individual and combined tension, torsion, bending, and pressure loads. During any drillstring design it is important to note in the design and operating stag. In reality worst case individual and combined conditions and make compensation for any assumptions used or as the case may be for conditions that may change or not be accounted and/or applied for. It is generally accepted that the most damaging combined loads occur under the following conditions: • During extreme drilling operations; Directional , horizontal , extended reach. • Rotating the drillstring under tension and/or torsion e.g. back reaming with a top drive, • Stuck pipe e.g. jarring, overpull, combined tension, compression and/or torsion. • Fishing operations e.g. jarring, overpull, combined tension, compression and/or torsion. Main design considerations. • • • • • • • • The main design considerations on the drillstring to be accounted for are : Tensional pulling and pushing ( compression ) on the drillstring, Combined tension / torsion while twisting the drillstring during rotation. The torsion while making up or braking out the drillstring components, The bending derived from wellbore geometry, doglegs in the wellbore, or through misalignment of the crown block, Pressures created by surface and subsurface pressure, or different drilling fluids inside and outside the drillstring. Slip crushing and stability forces. Shock loading on applying tension, compression or combined loads to the drillstring components. 4 Notes : 1.) Von Mises triaxial equation, fatigue and jar placement considerations are not considered in design 2.) Due to the complexities involved vibrational analysis is not considered and accounted for in this brief. 3.) Corrosion and erosion are not loads, but they both reduce the strength of tubulars. Accounting for a measure of wall thickness (e.g. 80%) to account for anticipated erosion and corrosion is considered acceptable in this case. e.g. A long extended reach well where drillpipe wear may be severe. The fundamental approach to drill string design is to calculate the loads individually to determine if the strength of the drill string is exceeded by each individual load. Then combine all loads in the Von Mises general stress and fatigue endurance equations to ascertain if general or fatigue failure will occur. (see appendix2) Tension Design Factors. The first considerations to be made regarding designing a drillstring for tension applied is to select a maximum working load that would never be exceeded during normal drilling operations. In the case of drillpipe this working load is based on a stress of 85% of the yield strength of the pipe , as recommended in strength and dimensions tables provided. The second consideration in tension string design is to determine the maximum allowable static load. This is the hook load when the drillstring ( including the drill collars, BHA components, etc. ) are hanging free in the wellbore and are equal to the string weight in air multiplied by the buoyancy factor for the weight of the drilling fluid in use. Three general methods are used to determine the Maximum allowable static load, they are • • • Design factor. Margin of overpull. Safety factor for slip crushing. 5 TWFH-13 drillstring design requirements : 1.) calculate the lengths of various 5" 19.50 lbs/ft G105 and S135 drillstrings for drilling the hole. 2.)

HP of draw works (assuming mechanical efficiency of 85%) = 2462 / 0.85 Horse power of draworks = 2896 Hp. A 3000hp draw works would therefore be most suited for the Daisy platform. © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD. Mud pump output and pressure ratings Hydraulics calculations for the two critical hole cleaning sections i.e. the 17 ½” and 12 ¼” sections is provided in appendix 3. Based on a maximum section depth operating pressure of 4350psi and 950GPM in the 12 ¼” section. The horsepower required for the mud pumps, assuming a 95% volumetric and 0.85% efficiency factors = HHP = (P x V) / (1714 x 0.85 x0.95) = (4350psi x 950GPM) / (1714 x 0.85 x0.95) = 2986HHP. 2 x 1600Hp pumps would be required e.g. National 12-P-160 Three pumps would be preferred to provide operational redundancy if one pump requires repair. © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD. Mud pit capacity Mud pit capacity Largest volumes required are in the 17 ½” section and would be displacing hole to mud at section TD. 17 ½” hole volume = (900 x 0.3415bbls/ft) + (0.2975bbls/ft x 750m) x 3.281 = 1740 bbls based on a rule of thumb that reserve = active requirements. A pit volume capacity in excess of 3000bbls would be required. Solids removal equipment. Requirements. Shale shakers to handle circulation volumes 1100-1200GPM in 17 ½” hole section. With redundancy for one shakers to be taken out of service using as fine as screens as possible to maintain high solids removal efficiency. E.g. High capacity , fine screen shale shakers. ( Thule VSM 100’s) Built in scalping screen, quick change screen facility, easy to operate and maintain, repairable screens. Efficient centrifuges to remove fine solids generated during drilling. As WBM being used shakers designed not to be underloaded so as to effect maximum operating performance. Shallow header tanks entry to shakers and proper flowline division to ensure flow can be equally controlled and divided to each shakers as required. Poor boy de-gasser to be fitted with minimum 8” vent line. Vacuum de-gasser to be able to handle max. operating rate of charge pumps i.e. 1200GPM. Gumbo box fitted to flowline. Flowline access platform for fitting and maintaining flowshows, gas detectors etc. 2” weco flushing connections fitted at strategic points for flowline cleaning © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD. Mud mixing & treatment equipment. Large diameter piping, with as direct feed and discharge as possible with minimum bends to reduce pressure losses ( 6” or 8” pipe.) with minimum fluid velocity of 10ft/sec. Centrifugal mix pumps 6” x 8”. Desirable to mix and treat mud in large quantities in the shortest possible time. Hoppers : 6” x 8” Centrifugal, 1400-1600GPM, @ 50 – 70psi. Shearing device for mixing polymers, (ABC Oil policy to use WBM exclusively for wells.) 2 Appendix 3 © KINGDOM DRILLING SERVICES LTD.
