DEA-133
“Shallow Water Flow Database”

Date Submitted: 8/12/02
DEA Project Number: DEA-133
Project Title: Shallow Water Flow Database
Contractor: Energy Research Clearing House Attn: Gene Sparkman P.O. Box 9484 The Woodlands, TX 77387
Email: sparkman@erch.org
World Wide Web Site: www.erch.org
Startup Date:

Scope of Work: The Energy Research Clearing House (ERCH) with support from DeepStar has developed a “Web Enabled” shallow water flows database that incorporates the 1995 DeepStar CD-ROM database with the goal of expanding it to include all SWF occurrences in the Gulf of Mexico. This database fills a need that was a top prioritized technology gap identified in both the ERCH-DEA-AADE-MMS sponsored shallow water flows workshop in 1998 and the Pennwell sponsored workshop in 1999. The project will collect, organize, combine and enhance all SWF databases in the GOM, update data with new wells, make the data widely accessible through the Internet, be current by adding future wells, and expand to a global database. We are recently incorporated Nile Delta data into the database. This project is unique in that it was a Joint Industry Project (JIP) with DeepStar Phase V Participants participating as a group subscriber for the initial development. The initial phase developed the initial software and converted the wells from the 1995 DeepStar CD-ROM to a web accessible database. Enhancements also include adding continuous log viewing and video capabilities. Technical Information Architects (TIA) is the sub-contractor for this project. The MMS is also participating in this project by supplying data that is available for public release. This database is now available online to subscribers and for in-house demonstration purposes.

Current Status: Data including the Deepstar CD-ROM data has been uploaded into the SWF Database is online with additional well information added. Phase I is complete and support for Phase II is currently underway. The work for Phase II includes adding new wells, updating the data sheets and database components, reviewing the categorization of SWF severity, and expanding the database with wells outside of the Gulf of Mexico. The Nile Delta mapping grid has been added to the database.

Projected Completion Date: Available for annual Subscriptions
Project Cost:
Participants: Phase II, BP, BHP, MMS, Halliburton, Western Geco
Cost per Participant: $12,000 (ERCH Members $10,000)

Business Impact: The Drilling Engineering Association (DEA), Minerals Management Service (MMS), American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) and Energy Research Clearing House (ERCH) held the Shallow Water Forum in June 1998. This meeting was to identify major gaps in shallow water identification technology. A report at this meeting described an analysis of 123 Gulf of Mexico wells having shallow water flows since the phenomenon first occurred in 1985. The analysis reported that $30,600,000 had been spent preventing SWF’s and $137,000,000 had been spent remediating SWF’s. A major identified gap was an up-to-date database of shallow water flow occurrences. There are approximately 150 wells in the Gulf of Mexico that represent SWF occurrences. Individual companies have been maintaining updates by incorporating their own wells. It is important that an updated database be maintained to facilitate proper planning for future wells. This database must be complete, widely accessible and user friendly.
Technical Objectives: ·Collect, Organize, Combine, and Enhance all existing SWF databases in the Gulf of Mexico ·Update data with wells not included in existing data-base through contact with operators ·Design database to be widely accessible through the Internet ·Database will interact with existing Microsoft applications ·Continue maintenance of future wells through contact with operators ·Expand to a Global Database
Methodology: ·The database will be driven by an ARC View base map with links to defined categories. ·The information will have inter-active links to reference pre-defined categories. ·Full search capabilities of all categories will allow for easy retrieval of desired charts and information. The existing and new data will be compiled into the following categories in up-dated database management software: ·Base Map ·Protraction ·Lease ·Block ·Well ·Platform ·Operator ·Cement Record ·Data Sheet ·Daily Drill Report ·Leak-off Test ·Mud Record ·Check shot ·Logs ·Hazard Plot ·Summary ·Hazard Survey
Deliverables: ·Up-to-date Shallow Water Flows Occurrence database ·CD-ROM and Secure Internet Access ·Future Gulf of Mexico Wells added to the Database from operator contacts ·Expansion to a global database
Startup Date: October 1, 1999
Project Duration: One Year Intervals
Project Cost: Based on the scope of work
Cost per Participant: $12,000 per participant for first year ($10,000 for ERCH members)
Comments: Database Management Software: GeoSCOPE is a map-based data management system tailored to the needs of the E&P project team. It can be rapidly deployed to bring together all types of geotechnical documentation, enabling efficient use of professionals in the early phase of prospect evaluation. Key Features: ·Easy to use map-based interface to centralized archive. ·Powerful spatial, catalog and full text searching. ·Secure (SSL) Internet access to online documents. ·Users can refine and add to the archive from their workstations. ·Full administration tools, including ESRI ArcView, for system maintenance. ·Electronic archive reduces storage and reproduction costs. ·Extensible PC based solution built on Intranet technology. ·Documents are stored in industry standard formats. ·Data sets can be published to CD for easy distribution.
