Let me get this clear - you have a well that you have run a 1" line 220' onto your property - are you asking if this will work?

What is gas spud?

In the gas industry, the process of beginning to drill a well. Initially a larger drill bit is used to drill a surface hole, which is lined with casing and cement to protect groundwater. After the surface hole is completed, the main drill bit is inserted and the well is drilled to the total depth.

What is the meaning of 'cased-hole logging'?

When we drill water wells of depths of say 100 feet to greater, we set metal or fiberglass ( casing) in the hole at a depth of maybe 50 to 1200 feet,then cement a plug within and outside the casing in case the well comes alive and artisans,we then drill through the cement and down to our desired depth,at several times during these depths,we have a (logger),who uses various instruments that he lowers into the well to analize potential problems(cracks in casing,fissures in the formation,something in the well that should not be there,the depth in which we are to reach,etc).

What does spudding an oil well mean?

Spudding an oil well refers to the beginning stage of drilling a well. A drill creates a hole in the surface, and then casing and cement are placed inside to keep the groundwater safe. After that hole is done, the primary drill bit is used to dig further the entire depth.

How do you drill a gas well?

Its easy once you have your permits and well license set up. Prepare your drill site, hire a drilling contractor and move the rig onto you site. Drill your surface hole ( required to go just past the water table in order to seal it off to prevent contamination). Then you would run your surface casing and cement it in place. This is what you will weld on your casing bowl to, which will then have your Blow Out Preventer (BOP). Once pressure and function testing is done on your BOP, you can drill the next section of the well which you could then run your production casing, or it may be your intermediate section of the well. Either way you would run a second string of casing into the well which would then be cemented in again. If required or needed you may drill again through this second string until you have reached the Total Depth of your well which is based on geology and seismic data that has been pre-analyzed.

Does it cost the same to drill a water well deeper or drill a new one?

Its usually about 100 dollars a foot to drill a well deeper. Drilling a new well usually wont solve your problem unless you have alot of acreage, because your giong to be drilling into the save aquifer and the water will be at the same depth. Plus you will have to run lines from the new well, pressure tank, casing, etc...

What is tubing and casing in well engineering and how are they related in the field?

I will expand on your question a bit, and explain casing, liner, tubing and drill pipe and include some information on the Macondo well. Casing and tubing are tubular goods. Casing is the most outer layer and acts to prevent fluids from coming into the well bore. The casing is cemented in place and the well is sealed. Once the well is cased, a tool called a perforating gun is run into the hole, and holes are maded at selected intervals so the oil or gas can be produced. A well may contain intervals that contain water, so it is important to seal the well using production casing and cement and then select the interval containing oil. A production liner is similar to casing, as it is used as a barrier. The top of a liner is hung from the last caing or liner that is run into the hole. Production tubing or the production string is used to produce the well. See related links. It is placed inside of the casing. There are rubber seals called packers that block fluids from flowing outside of the tubing. Finally, drill pipe is used to drill the well. Tests of productive intervals may be conducted using the drill string, but it is not used as production tubing. Since you asked this question under the BP Oil Spill category, the Macondo well had production casing and at the time of the accident drill pipe had been run to a depth of 8367'. The well was considered by BP engineers to have a good seal because they had pump cement to hold the casing and everything went ok. When they began to replace the drilling fluids with sea water, hydrocarbons began to flow. Evidence presented by BP now indicates that a contributing factor to the blow out was weak cement. See related links.

How can you put a hole in bullet casing to put it on a chain?

Let's get our terms straight- that is a CARTRIDGE casing. If the cartridge is loaded, there is no safe way to drill a hole in it- you could ignite the powder inside the case. They are made by drilling an UNLOADED cartridge case, and then inserting a bullet into the case. Please do not try to drill a loaded cartridge. REALLY bad idea.

What are spinning tongs used for in drilling rigs?

Casing tongs are used to spin-up and tighten 'casing' Other forms of tongs are used to make and break tubular connections to drill string. they are used to help achieve high levels of specified torque which help insure the drill string stays properly connected during the drilling process and keeps the seal on the joints.

What is the diameter of a oil well drill hole?

Wikipedia states wells can be anywhere from 5 to 36 inches. An oil well may have a number of casings, which fit inside each other. So a well might start off with an initial 20 inch diameter, drill a short distance, perhaps 200 ft, and then cement in a conductor casing and begin to drill a smaller diameter hole. Very common diameters for wells at the completion depth is 7 to 12 inches. Slimholes are any well with less than 4.5". See links. In well design, the well diameter is often a function of the casing design, which in turn is based on expected formation pressures that will be encountered during drilling.

What can you do if you smash your thumbnail?
