The Importance of Sand Characterization for Efficient Well Completions

By ‘an efficient well completion’ we intend a design that enables the well to produce optimally for a long period of time. Efficient completion designs will recover the maximum reserves while requiring minimal remedial intervention to the well. The planning must begin at the same time as planning for the drilling begins. Over the past […]

6 Ways Well Completions will Change in the Next 10 Years

One of the big challenges facing industry is figuring out ways to carry out well services that are common and inexpensive in conventional vertical wells, but are currently relatively difficult and expensive for horizontal wells. We are building many long wellbores but lack the appropriate tools and techniques to effectively and economically perform operations such […]

4 Principles Drilling and Completion Engineers Need to Know About Flow Control in Horizontal Wells  

1. Understanding Mechanics and Hydrodynamics in Horizontal Wells Flows in horizontal wells exhibit pipeline flow not vertical well flow characteristics. Flow in horizontal wells, as with pipeline flow, is dominated by friction effects as opposed to hydrostatic head effects found in vertical wells. The length of the lateral, and the way production contribution or injection […]

4 Reasons To Plan Well Completion Before Preparing Your Budget

4 REASONS TO DO YOUR WELL COMPLETION PLANNING  BEFORE, NOT AFTER, PREPARING YOUR DRILLING BUDGET EARLY AND NECESSARY CONSIDERATIONS IN PLANNING DRILLING PROJECTS Drilling long highly deviated or horizontal wells is now an overwhelming trend in the industry. It is also now a comparatively easy task due to a decade or more of intense investment […]
