  • Coiled tubing becomes the key enabler for successful multilateral well development campaign offshore Brazil

    S. Trummer, D. Silva, V. Cano, M. Guzman, N. Siqueira, C. Peixoto and V. Nazareth

    Pampo, produced through a fixed platform, was among the first producing fields offshore in Brazil. The maturation of the field and consequent decrease in oil production required a different completion strategy for the operator. The key reservoir, the Macaé/Quissamã, is the prime target for exploitation because it still has substantial oil in place, with good total recovery and actual recovery factors. The development of this reservoir was vital to the survival of the field. Several technical issues exist for developing this reservoir, especially during drilling, because of the high density of wells in the area. Each new well had to be carefully planned to avoid collision with existing wells and also to optimize the reservoir drainage. Several depleted wells have been evaluated to determine whether they should be abandoned and/or substituted. There were limited options for replacing these depleted wells.
