Abstract: In one example, an integrated well survey management and planning tool is implemented by a computer system. The tool can receive survey data describing a well being drilled from a surface to a subterranean geological target to be reached by drilling the well. The well is associated with a target trajectory on which the well is to be drilled from the surface to the subterranean geological target. Based, at least in part, on the survey data and the target trajectory, the tool determines an uncertainty indicator indicating an uncertainty in drilling the well on the target trajectory, and displays the uncertainty indicator in a user interface.
Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for an anti-preset and anti-reset mechanism for a retrievable packer are disclosed herein. These features may be used to prevent the packer from being actuated prematurely during deployment downhole and to prevent the packer from re-actuating during retrieval. An apparatus may include a mandrel, a slip assembly disposed about the mandrel, a collet member disposed about the mandrel and adjacent to the slip assembly, and a cover sleeve disposed about the mandrel and coupled to the collet member. A method for releasing a packer may include cutting a mandrel, sliding a cover sleeve and a collet member having a collet lug downhole with respect to the mandrel, applying force from the collet member to the slip assembly, disengaging the slip assembly from a well casing, and engaging an inner surface of the collet lug to a protrusion on the mandrel.
