  • Sand control technology advancements improve the cost and efficiency of completions

    Jul 17, 2017

    The days of completing mostly low-deviation wells using cased-hole gravel packs—either single-zone gravel packs or dual-zone stacked gravel packs—are long over. Operators now demand optimal production over an extended productive lifecycle. This demand has led to the development of more complex reservoirs: more remote locations; greater depths, including deep and ultra-deep water; higher deviations; and longer laterals and open holes for increased reservoir contact.

The ones that survive, do so on the cutting edge of relevance and applicability.

  • New section milling technology designed for restricted IDs restores access to leached area of cavern in highly abrasive Texas salt dome

    Jul 05, 2017

    The Stratton Ridge salt dome in Brazoria County, Texas, has been used extensively by the industry for brining operations and for the storage of liquid hydrocarbons, refined products and natural gas. The shape of the dome has been defined by several hundred oil and gas wells drilled over the top of this highly anomalous geologic diapir structure. Cavern operations at Stratton Ridge are known to have experienced multiple problems, including severe lost circulation while drilling through cap-rock, sheared well casings, corrosion, shifting and encountering hydrocarbon products that appear to have escaped from the storage cavern.
