Halliburton develops multi-zone completion technology
HOUSTON -- Halliburton announced today the successful completion of three wells in deepwater Gulf of Mexico utilizing Halliburton’s Enhanced Single-Trip Multizone (ESTMZ) FracPac system.
Halliburton developed the multi-zone completion technology in collaboration with Chevron U.S.A., and the two companies conducted numerous system integration tests and two field trials to prove the technology.
The time savings realized for each of the three Chevron-operated Lower Tertiary wells completed with the ESTMZ system averaged 18 days, equating to approximately $22 million.
The ESTMZ downhole tool system enables the operator to stimulate and gravel pack multiple production zones in a single trip. Designed for use in deepwater and ultra-deepwater offshore completions, the ESTMZ system allows the highest treating rate with the greatest volume of proppant. The system has been employed nearly 20 times globally, including in the Asia-Pacific region.
