After six earthquakes rattled the Permian basin over the past 19 months, the Texas oil regulator is asking drillers to cut back on the amount of wastewater they’re pumping underground.
GEODynamics and operators surface-tested typical unconventional fracturing configurations and determined that particle transport and fluid velocities impact proppant placement.
The collaboration agreement creates a new offering for customers by combining LYTT’s fiber optic data analytics and cloud-based software with Baker Hughes’ completions and well intervention hardware and service expertise.
Industry mandates for more sustainable operations and higher performance are reshaping drilling/well construction. For years, digital innovation has been important for improving efficiency and enabling returns-focused performance. Today, digital is equally important in reducing CO2 emissions to mitigate climate change.
Six remedies to prevent casing deformation and maintain wellbore integrity for a successful completion.
The Energy Workforce & Technology Council elected new officers and industry leaders during its Annual Meeting, held in Santa Ana Pueblo, NM.
The decline in DUCs in most major U.S. onshore oil-producing regions, especially in the Permian region, reflects more well completions and, at the same time, less new well drilling activity.
Streamlining day-to-day operations, using purpose-built apps, is enabling improvements for operations, maintenance and worker safety.
Nanoparticle tracers provide affordable solution for sweet spot identification, frac hit avoidance and well spacing understanding.
According to figures released September 3rd by the Railroad Commission of Texas, the state’s drilling permits issued fell to their lowest level since May, while new drills hit their highest total since March.
A coalition of energy companies, along with state and local partners, plans to spend $844 million on roads, education, workforce development, housing, broadband and health care in the region, according to the Permian Strategic Partnership, which assembled the group.
The high-performing electric frac solution reduced emissions for Chesapeake by 32% and applied over 25 megawatts of lower-carbon power generation by leveraging Chesapeake’s local field gas network.
US tight oil operators have for several months been depleting their inventory of drilled but uncompleted wells (DUCs) and, amid a slower drilling response, the number of ‘live’ DUCs in the country’s major oil regions slumped to 2,381 wells in June 2021, the lowest level since 2013, a Rystad Energy analysis reveals.
Halliburton Company introduced ExpressFiber, a single-use fiber optic cable that offers accurate, direct subsurface measurements, including cross-well communication, at a price point that enables fracture monitoring on every well pad.
By leveraging the combined strengths of their digital oilfield solutions, the partnership provides a single, unified solution to accelerate innovation and optimize every completions operation.
The platform now enables operators to integrate DAS data with offset pressure, microseismic, tracers, logs, and geologic information for a 360-degree interpretation of the physics driving well, pad, and unit development performance.
“The positive activity momentum we see in North America and international markets today, combined with our expectations for future customer demand, gives us conviction for an unfolding multi-year upcycle,” CEO Jeff Miller said.
This carbon emissions assessment is expected to be the most comprehensive testing of real-time well stimulation operations performed within the industry to date, with independent third-party testing to be performed for each of these technologies during Seneca’s field operations.
Highwood Equipment Technologies Inc. is transporting two of the world’s most advanced automated well service rigs to the Sultanate of Oman.
Schlumberger’s decarbonization plan leverages technology to address operational emissions, customer emissions, and carbon-negative actions.
The world’s biggest oilfield contractor joined rivals Halliburton and Baker Hughes this week in predicting expansion in overseas work and a more muted recovery in North America through the rest of 2021. Global oil demand should return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of next year, if not sooner, Schlumberger CEO Olivier Le Peuch told analysts on Friday.
