Latest Industry Drilling Envelope / ERD Nose plot anyone?
28 September 2015

Does anyone have the latest industry drilling envelope / nose plot that they can share with the group? 

For those that don't know this is a plot that shows depth versus outstep of all wells to give a feel for what is feasible.

BP used to collect this data and generate a spreadsheet called 'Industry Drilling Envelope'.  K&M have a version on their website. Possibly Rushmore have a similar plot? The most recent version of this type of plot that I have found is from 2012 in SPE paper 151046 'Pushing the extended reach envelope at Sakhalin: An Operator's Experience Drilling a Record Reach Well' but I am not sure how complete this is.

Personally I'm specifically interested in vertically deep sour wells rather than long outstep extended reach wells.

thanks!

Dave,
We have this, with additional details. We are also doing an industry search for ERD candidates for Reelwell, who we are working with on their 20km well technology. 

Drop me an email [email protected] and we'll forward.
