Drilling Hazards

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The hazards associated with drilling involve the subsurface, mechanical, and operational aspects that have economic, environmental, and safety consequences. The effects of these hazards have implications on the project completion, economic performance, and professional reputation. Managing the drilling hazards is an important aspect of engineering and geological projects. The management often requires advanced technologies and predrilling surveys. When evaluating the success of drilling projects, it is necessary to view them in terms of timely completions, in a safe manner, using the available technology while minimizing overall costs.
