Radial jet drilling stimulation technique is gaining interest around the world as an alternative to conventional wellbore stimulation methods, in which relatively long, small-diameter laterals can be drilled radially from the main wellbore. In this study, authors attempt a better understanding of the following areas:
i) efficiency of a high-velocity jet drilling on chalk destruction and identifying parameters
controlling the jet drilling;
ii) identifying the impact of high-velocity fluid on the mechanical properties of rock around
the jet drilled hole.
