Paper Number: SPE-206229-MS
... The subject well W-1 was spudded and initial drilling was smooth without major complications and the shallower sections posed no issues during the first phase of drilling and casing installation. This prelude, however, painted a picture in sharp contrast to the challenges that cropped up during...
