Case Study: RapidStage® system with AccessFrac® service shines in the Bakken

A minimum of 30% sustained production improvement in over 20 jobs performed CHALLENGE – Operators in the Bakken and Three Forks formations seek to increase compartmentalization in their wellbores by adding more isolated fracturing stages. The goal – access more productive reserves thereby improving well economics with the goal of lowering cost per BOE. At the same time, these operators strive to minimize...

Case Study: RapidStage® ME Frac Sleeve Systems Help Seneca Increase Efficiency in Extended Reach Laterals

Multi-Entry Completion System Reduces Completion Cycle Time CHALLENGE – Seneca needed to complete an extended reach lateral (ERL) well with an efficient, cost-effective, low risk solution. In ERL wells, all operations and their risks are amplified due to the intense nature of the well’s conditions. Extreme measured depths lead to higher risk coiled tubing operations and extended run times for both coil and...

Case Study: Illusion® Frac Plug Helps Eliminate High-Risk Millout Operations

Operator removes risk of intervening in a depleted wellbore when milling out composite plugs CHALLENGE – For upcoming high-density well-spacing trials, the operator primarily wanted to remove the risk of intervening in the depleted wellbore when milling out composite frac plugs. Those risks, unmitigated, can put higher-density drilling programs at risk due to the steep costs and time delays created when millout challenges...

Case Study: Unloading Completion Fluids Via a Well Test Package at 14 bbl/min

Increased well performance saving rig time and recovering additional base oil CHALLENGE – Shell Australia desired an engineered solution to increase completion fluid unload rate without introducing any significant additional costs. The parameters for the design included: Minimum Unload Rate of 10 bbl/min (14,400 bbl/day) Conform with all local, industry, operator, and service provider standards and regulations Approved by independent authority Utilise existing...

Case Study: eRED® Valve Saves Six Hours Rig-Time for BP

eRED® Valve opens and closes remotely, eliminating the need for wireline intervention CHALLENGE – BP needed a more efficient method to set a shallow barrier and to reduce rig time for pressure-control equipment (PCE). In doing this, BP wanted to ensure that the solution chosen would adapt to the existing completion infrastructure that was set in the well. SOLUTION – This water injection...

Case Study: Saving Deepwater Rig Time with Cutting-Edge Technology and Collaboration

USD 10 million saved with openhole wireline services in deepwater presalt exploration wells in Angola CHALLENGE – In Angola, drilling complex formation presalt wells, with water depths of over 5000 ft, can be challenging and expensive. In a logistically challenging country, complications arising from missing the target and any fishing jobs in these water depths can be both costly and detrimental to any...

Case Study: Halliburton Displaces Major Competitor in Wellbore Cleanout Operation

Three times more debris recovered than competitor in a Gulf of Mexico deepwater well CHALLENGE – A major operator in the Gulf of Mexico needed a tool that could successfully perform a wellbore cleanout operation in their deepwater well with a total depth of over 26,000 feet. Their current tool was not able to handle the job. They looked to Halliburton for a solution. SOLUTION...

Case Study: Collaboration and Advanced Engineering Workflow Deliver Record Production Increase in the Permian Basin

Drilling time reduced by 65 percent; cost per BOE reduced by 46 CHALLENGE – An operator in the Permian Basin drilled and completed three unconventional horizontal wells in the Delaware Basin, but, after a year, results had not proven economical. Other wells just outside this operator’s acreage had shown to deliver top-quartile performance. Believing the field had more to offer, the operator turned...
