  • Openhole gravel packing of fishhook wells with zonal isolation and uphill heel-to-toe packing

    Sateria Sulaiman, Rene Jansen, Manish Kumar, Raymond Tibbles, Nicholas Moses, Amirul Nordin, Joe Alexander and Samyak Jain

    Innovative ideas and improvements to existing technologies are extending the ability to develop prospects in shallow waters from onshore drilling locations following the world’s first two successful shunt-tube, uphill gravel packs in fishhook wells. Drilled from surface locations on land in Brunei with subsea locations offshore, these uphill gravel pack completions, incorporating shunt-tube technology, improve recovery and extend the fishhook completion technique to wells with critical well trajectories.
