Drilling planning is the key to being able to safely and economically drill a usable hole for oil and gas production. The economic feasibility of drilling a well is established from cost estimation of drilling, completion, and production operations, while safety and cost control are achieved through the proper planning of all relevant programs that have an impact on the proposed prospect well. Planning for drilling an oil well requires many detailed studies evaluating every aspect that directly or indirectly influences the successful economic outcome of the project. Planning requires intuitive, common sense judgments controlling decision making, along with the analyses representing the coordinated efforts of many individuals, each of whom contributes specific skills to the task. The objectives of drilling planning are: First, to identify and address all significant engineering parameters, that are likely to have a direct or indirect impact on the proposed drilling venture. Next, prepare a drilling plan that addresses all issues and that will enhance the success of the prospect well by drilling in safe, efficient, and economical manner in compliance with all federal, state, and local government rules and regulations. Therefore, my case study would be Well Gelama Merah, it is a vertical exploration well located in Block SB-18-12 Offshore Sabah, Malaysia. I will use the data from Well Gelama Merah to develop a systematic, reliable, economical, and safe, vertical oil well drilling planning guideline. The effect and functions of each steps and equipments utilized in the development phase of an oil field (Gelama Merah) would be analyzed and technically justified. The relevance and importance of each of the procedures would be explained, and sample calculations would be provided as a guideline for future reference.
