Well Engineering Partners provided various services for magnesium brine producing wells owned by Nedmag. To increase the production, Nedmag decided to drill a new well TR-09. Project planning, tendering engineering, coordination, management, and supervision was carried out by WEP, whereas other companies provided the materials and services.
In November and December of 2011, the well was drilled by the drilling contractor KCA Deutag, using their T45 rig. The spud date was the 10th of November and the rig was released on the 19th of December.
The well situated in Veendam NL was successfully drilled to target TD within the available budget. The target depth of the S-shaped well is located at 2274mah and 1630m TVD. The well has a Kickoff point at 120m TVD and an inclination of more than 60 degrees. The directional drilling was done by a rotary steerable BHA. The final 80 meters has been drilled with a coring BHA. Coring went successfully with 96% recovery rate.
