Drilling Activity for Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Well: APS Cholla Pilot CO2 Well
Rig: WDC Rig 161
Activity: Run and cement 9-5/8"casing
WDC personnel cleaned the rig tanks and rigged down the drilling rig. The cement level in the 9-5/8" annulus gradually fell to approximately 100 feet below ground level. The 9-5/8" casing was left in tension for 13 hours after cementing to allow the cement in the wellbore to harden. The 14" and 9-5/8" casings were cut just above ground level. The rig mast was lowered and the rig unit was pulled away from the wellbore. Approximately 80% of WDC’s rig equipment has been demobilized from the drill site. Operations were suspended for the day at 6:30 p.m.
Observations  
  • Daily activities summarized to 6:00 p.m. August 11.  
  • Drilling measurements are referenced from kelly bushing (KB) of Bearcat drilling rig (12 ft above grade level).
  • Surface Casing: 9-5/8" OD, 36 lb/ft Grade J-55 STC; set at 958 ft below the KB.
