Sand control in horizontal and deviated wells - PetroWiki

Deviated wells drilled from multi-well pads are similar to deviated wells drilled from an offshore drilling center. Wells with a common surface location are drilled to different bottom-hole targets identified by geologists and reservoir engineers. There are many uses for deviated and horizontal (or single-lateral) wells. These include to:

Deviated Well Calculations – Drilling Templates

The cosine is the ratio of the True Vertical Depth (TVD) compared to the Measured Depth (MD). For example the Cosine (COS) of a 45 degree angle is 0.7071. This means for every foot of mesured depth the true vertical depth is only 0.7071 feet. Example: A well is deviated from the surface at a 30 degree angle. The MD is 800 feet.
