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...

Case Study: Fracture Height Confirmed in Australian CSG Well

Service provided understanding on whether horizontal or steeply dipping fracturing existed in an exploration well in the Gloucester Basin CHALLENGE – Halliburton client AGL Energy Limited needed insight into the vertical and horizontal fracture height and complexity of a vertical coal seam gas (CSG) exploration well in Gloucester Basin in Eastern New South Wales, Australia. Fracture gradients in the well were in excess...

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...
