As fallout, the “big crew change” that the industry has been anticipating for years might happen a little bit sooner than expected. When markets recover, it is unlikely that companies will be rehiring the people that left the organizations in the first place. Some people have moved to other industries, while others have chosen to retire.

  • Taking Reverse Cementing Offshore

    Dec 01, 2016

    The unique and complex characteristics of deepwater formations have been strong drivers for technological innovation, as operators and service companies alike expand their capabilities to meet the demands of this high-stakes arena.

    One of the most critical aspects of well development, cementing is especially challenging in deepwater environments with depleted formations, weak or lost-circulation zones, and narrow pore pressure/fracture gradients. These conditions influence the window of acceptable equivalent circulating density (ECD) downhole necessary for successful cementing operations.

  • Delivering Well Integrity Through Secure Connections

    Nov 15, 2016

    From complex deepwater wells to conventional land operations, casing and tubing are essential aspects of wellbore integrity. Tubulars serve as the primary mechanical barrier that prevents flow into the environment or other formations. Meeting the demands of this challenge requires that the casing connections are secure and made up to OEM specifications, to prevent leaks that can result in connection failure when the well goes on production. By achieving a good connection the first time, operators can avoid costly interventions to replace tubing. Furthermore, in the event of an intervention, poor connections present the added risk of not being able to recover production rates to pre-leak levels.
