Nearly every well installation process nowadays relies on some sort of risk assessment study, given the high costs involved. Those studies focus mostly on estimating the total time required by the well drilling and completion operations, as a way to predict the final costs. Among the different techniques employed, the Monte Carlo simulation currently stands… (More)
