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...

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...

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.

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)...

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...

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...
