Accounts for 17.5% of all NPT (non-productive time) found in this study, with a wide array of problems encountered when drilling through Ireton: Tight Hole, Stuck Pipe, Wellbore Instability, Well Control, and Mud Losses.
Problems in Duvernay formation:
While most NPT time occurred drilling laterally through Duvernay, it’s interesting to note that 19.9% (912 of 4583 hrs) of Duvernay-related NPT was due to Fishing issues.
Mud losses in surface hole:
While surface hole drilling only accounted for 10% of overall NPT, 455 of the 471 (96.6%) NPT hours at surface were related to fluid loss.
