IMBIBITION
The process of absorbing a wetting phase into a porous rock. Imbibition is important in a waterdrive reservoir because it can advance or hinder water movement, affecting areal sweep. Spontaneous imbibition refers to the process of absorption with no pressure driving the phase into the rock. It is possible for the same rock to imbibe both water and oil, with water imbibing at low in situ water saturation, displacing excess oil from the surface of the rock grains, and oil imbibing at low in-situ oil saturation, displacing excess water. An imbibition test is a comparison of the imbibition potential of water and oil into a rock. The wettability of the rock is determined by which phase imbibes more.

Swabbing
"In short, swabbing is a form of “well control” that releases bottom hole pressure in order to “kick” the well off. When wells are first drilled, they are usually fractured by a pressurized liquid to help open up “production zones” where oil or gas can travel to. The next step is where the actual swabbing takes place.

Swabbing rigs are then used to remove the fluids from the production zones. These swabbing rigs normally have a winch with a cable and a foldable mast with a pulley on top. First, the rig operator must back the machine as close to the well as he possibly can. Next, the operator raises the mast and moves it until it is aligned with the center of the well. Next, the operator lowers the cable in and out of the well via the “winch drum”. Here, the operator must be able to maintain control of the machine while taking into account the well’s sound and depth.

The activities of the swabbing rig then allow for the removal of the liquids inside the well. Standard practices involve removing 6 barrels of fluid out of the well. This practice if referred to as a “Run”. Some wells may take just one run while other may require multiple. Removing these fluids then causes the bottom hole pressure to increase. This allows the oil or gas to be pushed out of the well to cause it to start “flowing”. Oilfield workers may then start collecting and storing the natural resource that it being emitted from the well they are working on. As the well ages, the bottom pressure of the well may not be enough to push the oil and gas out of the well anymore. The well has then stopped flowing and the swabbing process needs to be started over again.

"When is a rotary rig "active" ?

To be counted as active a rig must be on location and be drilling or 'turning to the right'. A rig is considered active from the moment the well is "spudded" until it reaches target depth or "TD". Rigs that are in transit from one location to another, rigging up or being used in non-drilling activities such as workovers, completions or production testing, are NOT counted as active."

So once the rig reaches TD, it is no longer counted as active. That means that any later activities - logging, running casing, running a completion, testing, setting cement plugs to abandon or suspend, are not counted in the active period. So the rig could still be working for Armstong but we won't see it and it will only see it when Icewine #2 is spudded.

"And there are very good data wells. And we also have the new wells that Great Bear has drilled in the north. So we have done petri-physics using the best guy that I’m aware of - his company’s called Stimulation Petrophysics - so he’s my favourite type of petri-physicist - he’s a completions engineer. So he doesn’t get tied up in all the gobble-de-gook of petro-physics - this guy’s thinking about “How do you make money? How do you complete a well?”. He’s been in the business forever. He used to run Halliburton’s international group - and anyway he’s come in and he’s spent a long, long time looking at all these wells - and effectively we see during the petro-physics of a much bigger area than where we are, that the play’s not only continuous but in some places it even gets better (than / in?) where we are."
