... lateral wells. The impact of free gas migration in inclined downward laterals drilled with water based mud is compared to the influence of gas solubility in inclined upward wells drilled using synthetic oil based mud. Preliminary results show that deeper, over-pressurized Utica shale presents more...

...) and verify its application to oil based mud. Due to gas solubility in OBM a real time drilling and hydraulics data analysis is essential to minimize kick volumes. Therefore, early kick detection and surface warning signs are critical to minimize the influx size and reduce wellbore pressures. Moreover...

... are then presented to address the unique mineralogy and mechanical properties of the Utica shale. The high percentage of acid soluble carbonate and dolomite suggests an acid treatment to lower entry pressures. This treatment can be the main stimulation of a vertical or horizontal well since natural fractures...

..., and volume at depth; solubility of acid-rock reaction products; and acid costs. Design considerations and economic calculations indicate that the new method will be applied most advantageously to carbonate formations deeper than approximately 4000 feet, with limestone at depths between 6000 and 9000 feet...

... to effectively stimulate these formations. These iron compounds present three major problems: Relatively insoluble iron compounds that may be released by acidizing fluids and have a plugging effect when they migrate; Acid soluble iron compounds that may reprecipitate when the acid spends; and Aerated...
