Abstract: Wellbore geometry stuck pipe mechanism occurs when the string and the well are incompatible with each other. This issue is commonly related to changes in hole diameter, angle, and direction associated with symptoms such as mobile/swelling formation, undergauged hole, key seating, ledges, and high doglegs. An internal study identified that many stuck pipe incidents were associated with mechanical sticking, specifically wellbore geometry sticking with high-cost impact, which warrants proactive prevention. Throughout this paper, we provide and demonstrate how machine learning solutions can foresee the potential stuck pipe related to wellbore geometry issues based on two signs: hookload signature and dogleg severity.
