Title: Risk assessment and evaluation of the conductor setting depth in shallow water, Gulf of Mexico
Author: Tu, Yong B.
Abstract: Factors related to operations of a well that impact drilling uncertainties in the shallow water region of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM ) can be directly linked to the site specific issues ; such as water depth and local geological depositional environments . Earlier risk assessment tools and general engineering practice guidelines for the determination of the conductor casing design were based more on traditional practices rather than sound engineering practices . This study focuses on the rudimentary geological and engineering concepts to develop a methodology for the conductor setting depth criteria in the shallow water region of the GOM .
