Case Study: Reliable Well Abandonment System Saves Time and Money During Storm Evacuation

Temporary well abandonment system stays intact in GOM for nine years, despite hurricanes CHALLENGE – It was hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico, and a Halliburton client with a jack-up rig was faced with the challenge of oncoming Hurricane Katrina and a secondary hurricane, Hurricane Rita, while a well was being drilled. Evacuating personnel was the priority, but the risk of equipment damage left in...

Case Study: First Wireline Tractor Frac Sleeve Shift Saves Time

Collaborative effort results in the first wireline tractor closing of frac sleeves in half the time for three wells in Kazakhstan. CHALLENGE – When Karachaganak Petroleum Operating (KPO) was selecting a completion technology for three of their wells in Kazakhstan, they chose Halliburton solutions that provided interventionless multistage fracturing operation. During the operation, the RapidShift® system sleeves needed to be shifted. Using conventional coiled tubing to shift...

Case Study: Innovative Perforation Application Helps Production Excel

Halliburton’s innovative perforation application overcame excessive formation damage and boosted anticipated production by 313%. CHALLENGE – An onshore, cased-hole, and perforated oil wellbore located in the Ecuadorian rainforest had a damaged formation and low bottom-hole pressure leading to excessive losses with depleted intervals and sub-average production rates. The operator needed alternatives for bypassing the damage and an perforation application that could perforate a new upper interval...

Case Study: Deepwater Offshore Mexico – Unconventional Reamer Solution

Enlarging a hole using an unconventional reamer solution saved a Halliburton client time and money while achieving excellent hole quality in deepwater offshore Mexico. CHALLENGE – Working in deepwater wells in Mexico provided one operator pressure drop and flow requirement constraints. These types of constraints require drilling a vertical hole with a rotary steerable system and enlarging the hole while doing it. They needed an innovative...

Case Study: Deepwater Gulf of Mexico – Huge Savings for Operators

Accomplishing in less than 8 hours what a competitor couldn’t do required a fast, accurate and safe solution for a Halliburton client in deepwater Gulf of Mexico. CHALLENGE – An operator working in the Gulf of Mexico was completing a deepwater well when they encountered stuck pipe that stalled operations, causing non-productive time (NPT) at a significant cost to the operations. They needed to quickly and...

Case Study: Old Romanian Wells Need Increased Production

Six months of collaborative planning and modeling result in safe job execution and a large production increase for a Halliburton client. CHALLENGE – OMV Petrom in Romania had a number of aging wells with declining production. They were experiencing low reservoir pressure, clogged perfs and proximity of the perfs to the bottom of the well. They needed a collaborative solution that would increase production through wellbore stimulation....

Case Study: New Technology Saves Client Time in the Colorado DJ-Basin

Halliburton used new technology to increase perforating efficiency and optimize stimulation for our client in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) basin. CHALLENGE – Synergy Resources in Colorado, United States, needed to avoid additional coiled tubing gun runs, increase proppant placement and reduce water consumption while drilling and completing wells in the DJ basin. SOLUTION – In an innovative performance, Halliburton deployed three new technologies: Pump-Down Visualization (PDV) service;...

Case Study: Coring System Without Jamming in Oklahoma

Halliburton’s RockStrong™ Coring system delivered record-setting 693 ft of continuous formation material without jamming, minimizing overall time. CHALLENGE – A major operator in Oklahoma, United States, needed to obtain continuous core lengths without jamming, improve operational efficiency and sample recovery rates, and acquire samples in a cost-effective way, while minimizing overall time in their formation. SOLUTION – In a record-setting performance, Halliburton deployed RockStrong™ coring system...
