Horizontal Drilling in the Dos Cuadras Field

J. David Payne


Four shallow horizontal wells were drilled from Platform ā€œCā€ in the Dos Cuadras Field, Offshore California to recover reserves previously inaccessible with conventional drilling techniques. The wells had true vertical depths ranging from 746 ft to 989 ft with total horizontal displacements from 1613 ft to 3788 ft. The wells had horizontal displacement to true vertical depth ratios as high as 3.95. The target sands were unconsolidated, high permeability sands. This paper details the planning, drilling, and completion of these wells.
