Halliburton Supports Kid’s Meals to Help End Childhood Hunger

Halliburton employees and families volunteer time and participate in challenges to help support Kid’s Meals program Kids’ Meals is the only meals on wheels program in the nation that serves preschool aged children. In Houston, Texas, one in four children are unsure of their next meal, a problem called “food insecurity”. Being in a food insecure home means children have limited or unreliable access to enough...

Halliburton donates laptops and phones to help students with virtual learning

Halliburton employees loaded nearly 1,000 laptops and phones onto trucks to be delivered to Aldine Independent School District and Comp-U-Dopt Last week, Halliburton donated nearly 1000 retired IT assets to Houston-area non-profit organizations to support students’ virtual learning. Halliburton Community Relations Manager Melissa Sowell, along with members of the Halliburton IT department, loaded laptops and iPhones onto trucks to be delivered to Aldine Independent School District...

Case Study: North Sea Operator Trials Innovative P+A Barrier Verification with Potential Savings of 34 Hours Rig Time

Relay™ Tractor System Successfully Deploys Shale Barrier Assessment Tools in Highly Deviated Well Section Challenge – The well section in question was a highly deviated section (72°), meaning that any deployment by gravity alone would be unachievable. Additionally, a restrictive deck footprint meant that any option would need to fit in with a busy rig that had ongoing subsea P&A operations. Good-quality data would be required...

Case Study: New Technology Enables Operator to Achieve A Level of Efficiency Previously Unachievable

Turbo Tech® II Valve and Inflow Tech® Packer with Setting Control Module Enable Wellbore Cleanout in a Single-trip Challenge – A major industry challenge that operators face is being able to reliably operate two compression-set tools in the string at the same time. Since most wellbore cleanout-compatible (rotatable) packers are compression-set, operators typically must compromise with a ball-drop bypass tool or risk an unintentional functioning of...

Tech Paper: Continuous Use of Fiber Optics-Enabled Coiled Tubing Used to Accelerate the Optimization of Completions Aimed at Improved Recovery and Reduced Cost of Development

FiberLog™ Service and SPECTRUM® Real-Time Coiled Tubing Services help operators in Bakken, North Dakota Continuous improvement in completions designs leading to an increased return on asset development is one of the primary focuses of operating companies. To continue driving towards this goal, an operator looked to continuously optimize completions designs in their acreage in Bakken, North Dakota. There were two parallel paths taken to a) reduce CAPEX...

Case Study: HERO™ Bridge Plug Maintains Pressure Integrity in Challenging Well Shut-In Operations

First High-expansion Bridge Plug Installed For Sonatrach Provides Dependable API 11D1 V0 Barrier Challenge – Sonatrach required a low-cost, slickline-deployed retrievable mechanical barrier. The wells contained landing nipple restrictions above the target setting depth. A mechanical barrier was needed to provide pressure integrity for well shut-ins with up to 18 days duration down hole. Due to remote conditions, the retrievable bridge plug (RBP) was also required...

First Halliburton Female Drilling Fluids Engineer in Pakistan – Asiya Abbasi

“Don’t give up when you are tired and don’t give up when you are done.” My journey at Halliburton began soon after graduating from university. I received a call from Halliburton HR to set up an interview for a preliminary internship with the potential to become a full-time job. I went through multiple interviews and presentations before being hired. I always wanted to join the drilling...

Case Study: Intercept® Retrievable Bridge Plug Provides Reliable Barrier During Blowout Preventer Maintenance Operation

Successful plug performance marks first-ever use of intercept RBP in Azerbaijan and for this operator Challenges – This was a critical well for the customer.  The first branch that  was drilled is currently the longest well in the Caspian Sea, with a total depth of 7,411m.  The second branch, drilled to a TD of 6,803m, would then have to be completed after a period of  BOP...

Tech Paper: Maximizing a Mature Field Value by Combining Polymer Flooding, Well Interventions, and Infill Drilling

Learn how these methods can be properly combined at different stages of asset life The perception of better economics and less risk from infill drilling and recompletions are reasons well-focused remedies are preferred compared to reservoir-focused solutions, such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR). However, most literature does not discuss the economic and risk indicators driving this. Using a real example, this work demonstrates that combining polymer...

Tech Paper: Optimizing Completion Design through Fracture Evaluation in Oil-Based Mud using High-Resolution LWD Ultrasonic Images

Provides real-time data to enhance reservoir understanding and optimize completions Identification and interpretation of fractures, bed boundaries, and borehole breakout from high-resolution images plays a crucial role in optimizing completion design. In low-angle wells drilled with oil-based mud (OBM), images may be acquired using wireline. However, using wireline has been a challenge when inclinations exceed 45°, making logging-while-drilling (LWD) acquisition preferable. This paper presents the first...
