Paper Number: SPE-119903-MS
... introduced in previous literature [1,3,8,10] . This method of monitoring fatigue damage due to rotary operations allows the pipe to be evaluated under real-time operating conditions along a specific section or the entire length of the drill pipe. Monitoring begins at spud and is performed on each joint...

... of a Levingston Class 111-C rig to endure severe offshore weather environments. To further validate the safety of the rig following the storm, the spud cans were also subjected to a series of ultrasonic nondestructive tests. The results of these tests and the repairs made are also discussed in this paper. Rig...

... Abstract From spud to TD, the Joanne 30/7a-P11 well was drilled to a measured depth of 23,035's in 23.65 days. This extraordinary performance was achieved despite a 1600's sidetrack in an upper hole section. Adding time for skidding over the well slot, logging the reservoir interval, running...

... requires that the stability of the unit be increased. Sponsons are added to the hull to provide this increase in stability (Figure 2). Strengthening of the legs, spud cans, and hull are necessary to carry the variable load increase. The hull is reinforced for both the higher variable and increased...

... IADC Members Abstract Spud can/soil interaction is a critical parameter in determining the safety of jack-up operations under complex soil conditions. This paper presents a cost effective modification to a standard spud can design, based on the requirement for a 5 m long skirt and an increase...

... the progression of the can damage for the past ten (10) years, the regulatory agencies and Diamond M's Engineering staff recommended that provisions for drydocking the rig and repairing the damaged spud cans be made. Many alternatives were investigated for drydocking the rig. Facilities that could lift the rig...
