Drilling experience with a small pressure window demonstrated the usefulness of ECD control and early kick detection.
Findings suggest that temperature’s effect on annular pressure substantially impacts the ability to precisely estimate the static and dynamic fluid densities.
Studies show the importance of an integrated design approach for a deep-draft semisubmersible and subsea wells tied back with steel catenary risers.

Evaluations were performed to find the most cost-efficient well configuration.
Marcellus development shows the seeds of a new gas paradigm Stephen Bull, Commercial Leader, Statoil ASA In November 2008, Statoil and Chesapeake Energy Corporation announced their $3.375 billion strategic
Co-visualizing different models of the subsurface enables an understanding of the producing reservoirs that could not be achieved when using these models individually.
A 60-well field study provides a means of optimizing common operations and minimizing nitrogen use, risks of becoming stuck and time on location—all adding up to more cost-effective jobs.
