Existing but previously unused data obtained during the drilling process can now be used to enhance completion design. The author outlines the available data and discusses how it can be incorporated into the completion design process and ultimately provide economic benefits to an operator.
New system builds on proven technology for reservoir management to smaller platforms and satellite wells
A new slickline-deployed, memory-based, cased-hole evaluation system delivers the same quality data used to identify bypassed reserves as conventional wireline but without the higher costs and logistical burdens.
To drill more wells, they need steel tubes to line the inside of the holes and get the crude out. Those pipes have become more expensive and scarce.
As fracturing intensities continue to push component capabilities, a system-level approach is required to further enhance operational efficiencies. An innovative completion technology ecosystem has delivered OPEX savings and QHSE improvement through system integration, automation and digital control capabilities.
Increased industry demand for lower emissions, improved operational efficiency and reliability, and competitive capital cost structure, all call for innovative thinking in hydraulic equipment design and engineering. Direct-drive turbine technology has been proven to take up the challenges.
Oil and gas drilling is big business once again, if the leap in demand for services from Baker Hughes Co., the world’s No. 2 oilfield contractor, is any gauge.
Schlumberger is gearing up for growth around the world as the No. 1 oilfield contractor expects recovering economies to ignite several years of crude-demand expansion.
Titan Division of Hunting Energy Services announced an exclusive licensing agreement with Nammo Defense Systems Inc. for the manufacture of time delay fuses for Hunting’s perforating applications.
NexTier Oilfield Solutions Inc. shares soared more than 20% after the frac provider disclosed higher-than-expected quarterly sales, signaling an acceleration in U.S. shale drilling.
