Case Study: Single-Trip Multizone Cased-hole Frac Packs and Intelligent Completions Improve Recovery in Subsea Gas Field

Advanced completion solution enables wells to remain fully functional after five years of production Challenge – The operator needed to improve operational efficiencies for this complex subsea field of shallow, low pressure, and weakly consolidated gas reservoirs. The field required a method of dealing with unconsolidated sands, along with the ability to monitor and control each of the six potential layers as the...

Case Study: Integration Drives Performance and Accelerates Learning Curve in an Ultra-Deepwater Pre-Salt Exploration Drilling Project in Brazil

Halliburton integrated services achieves new benchmarks in post-salt and salt sections Challenge – The operator faced many challenges to build exploratory wells in this ultra-deepwater environment, with the main objectives to minimize the significant drilling risks and costs and reduce the total cost of well construction and evaluation. Other challenges included the long 28-inch riserless section in the post-salt formations facing hole instability...

Case Study: eRED® Valve Provides Efficiencies and Time Savings in Downhole Operations

Valve operates remotely after 23 months down hole Challenge – The operator’s previous method for hanger installation and completion testing involved the deployment of a dual-bore riser and multiple intervention runs to allow for plug installation on the annulus bore. This can be a time-consuming operation, especially as the North Sea is subject to adverse weather conditions that can result in waiting on...

Case Study: eRED® Valves Save 88 Hours of Rig Time for Upper Completion Project

Remotely operated valves eliminate requirement of costly interventions To achieve its goals, Shell elected to pre-install the remotely operated Halliburton eRED® valve as a shallow barrier in the tubing hanger. This allowed Shell to have a secondary barrier in place without the requirement of an intervention before removing the blowout preventer (BOP) and installing the Christmas tree. In total, the eRED valves were...

Case Study: In 1924, Myron Kinley Kick-Starts the Well Control Industry with a Bang

Most well control methods and technologies used today trace their roots back to one man: Myron Kinley Challenges – In the early days of the oil field, blowouts were common, but there were no well control companies around to handle them. Thousands of lives were lost as oil companies struggled to handle dangerous blowouts without the benefits of modern-day well control practices. Then...

Case Study: Summit ESP® Successfully Replaces Rod Lift System

Multi-technology solution generates USD 1.4 Million in revenue for operator in just six months Challenge – Rod lift systems have their own challenges, especially in extreme conditions with excessive gas and high depths. Gas is compressed within the pump itself before actually producing liquid. Solids fallback is also an issue, particularly in the Bakken formation. The client had wells with pump set depth...

Case Study: RapidStart® Initiator CT Sleeve Helps Seneca Resources Pump an Extra Frac Stage

Single toe sleeve increases return on investment Challenge – In horizontal wells, a toe sleeve is used to provide the necessary access from the wellbore to the formation at the toe of the well. Communication between the wellbore and the formation is needed to provide a flow path that will allow displacing either frac plugs and/or frac balls downhole so that multistage fracturing...

Intercept® Retrievable Bridge Plug Provides V0 Barrier on Two Batch Wells with Zero NPT

Halliburton retrievable bridge plug helps ensure stability and safety Challenge – This operator needed to rent barrier plugs in order to temporarily abandon its wells to drill and run batch completions. Normally, the operator rented bridge plugs from another service company. Halliburton discussed the well challenges with the operator and recommended the Intercept® retrievable bridge plug because of its gas-tight V0 barrier during...

Case Study: Integrated Well Intervention Solution Reduces Offshore P&A Costs By Over 50 Percent

Solution becomes new P&A benchmark in offshore field Challenge – In the field, the platform had been unmanned and the drilling facility idle for 10 years, requiring costly upgrades to be prepared for the plug and abandonment (P&A) campaign. The P&A solution had to comply with strict environmental and internal company technical requirements, and also reduce overall decommissioning time for the platform. The...

Case Study: Halliburton Enters Conventional Liner Hanger Market on Sinclair Well

First MatchSet™ system is successfully installed in highly deviated horizontal application Challenge – The customer had limited operations in the Williston Basin, and was faced with the complexity of a highly deviated horizontal well with a sidetrack. It needed a hanger with a modular design that could handle long and heavy liners with minimal stress to the parent casing. The MatchSet™ conventional liner...
