  • Automatic mud mixing (master thesis)

    • January 2011 to June 2011
    Team Members: Rustem Nafikov

    The current thesis describes the automation of drilling fluid mixing, which is the continuation of the work done during the fall 2010. To get more realistic results the mud circulation model is improved with emphasis on downhole and mud mixing systems. The well is divided into control volumes to imitate the moving of the drilling fluid inside the drillstring and the annulus and to include disturbances such as production of shale cuttings and mud losses to the formation. The possibility of monitoring the downhole pressure is included as well. Mud mixing system is improved by introducing the mud dilution property with the help of water addition, which is controlled by a PID controller. To compensate for changing mud properties during circulation, the control of the density and viscosity at the point, where mud flows out of the well is designed.
    The performance of the model is tested in simulations, first in open-loop and then in closed-loop. Obtained results show the expected behavior of all variables and the possibility of automatic control. Additionally, necessary improvements are detected to include in the further work.

  • Multivariable control for drilling

    • June 2010 to August 2010
    Team Members: Rustem Nafikov

    The work was performed by a group of 3 students with the scrum method involved. The project was organised in 4 tasks.
    Mud mixing process was chosen for a deep analyzing and was modelled in detail in Matlab.

Rustem Nafikov's Publications

  • Automatic Mud Mixing

    • SPE/IADC 2013
    • March 5, 2013
    Authors: Rustem Nafikov, Monica Glomstad

    The current paper represents an overview of the automation model for drilling fluid mixing and is based on thesis works of (Nafikov 2011) and (Glomstad 2012).
    The first part of investigation is based on a model developed with the help of MATLAB® and SIMULINK® softwares. The simplified mud circulation model consists of downhole and mud mixing systems. Mud mixing system is represented in a way of addition of chemicals for mud treatment, i.e. viscosifier (bentonite), densifier (barite) and the mud dilution property with the help of water addition. The addition of all chemicals is controlled by PID controllers. Mud mixing and downhole systems interact between each other during simulations. When fluctuations in a form of cuttings or mud losses occur in the dowhole system, the mud mixing system adapts all PID controllers to keep the desired mud properties.
    The second part of investigation looks at two principles for control of the mud mixing: cascade control and model predictive control. A controller based on model predictive control has been designed and tuned by using MPC (Model Predictive Control) tool .

  • Running 7" liner to TD using turbine technology in Gullfaks Satellites and Oseberg Fields

    • SPE 2014
    • April 2, 2014
    Authors: J.P. Corriveau, Rustem Nafikov, T. Bryce, J. Prescott, T. Walerianczyk

    In the Bergen High area of operations unstable shales, coals and paleosols have regularly resulted in problems when drilling. As a result a new approach to drilling was developed - Low Energy Drilling Operations - LEDO, described elsewhere in the literature. However due to increasing degrees of difficulty occasioned by well design requirements, running 7” liners successfully to TD at the first attempt has continued to be a challenge, even in LEDO drilled wells. This lead to the development and introduction of a new solution using proven technology - the turbine powered reamer shoe.
