JERUSALEM -- Market worries over the future development of Israel's energy sector eased after government officials approved the export of 40% of the natural gas from the country's offshore Leviathan reserve, opening the way for an i ...
ABERDEEN -- Dolphin Drilling, one of the oldest and largest independent drilling contracting companies in the North Sea, attended a naming ceremony recently to unveil the identity of a brand new state-of-the-art drillship to be operated by ...
Lenders looking to buy ATP Oil & Gas's deep water drilling assets have increased the cash portion of their $690 million bid, a move that could appease the bankruptcy judge overseeing ATP's Chapter 11 case. ...
A recent horizontal drilling campaign in western China has broken drilling performance records while using the industry’s first high build rate, rotary steerable system (RSS) with custom integrated bits to target very thin, ultra-deep oil reservoirs
Part 1, Logging: General developments include ongoing efforts to improve the accuracy of wellbore surveys. New LWD developments include cement evaluation; azimuthal acoustic tool and LWD NMR, among others. New wireline developments include openhole acoustic single-well imaging, borehole radar, geomechanics, pulsed-neutron geochemical logging, wireline formation testing and reservoir connectivity evaluation, among others.
If the Three Forks/Bakken shale sounds awkward now, allow it to sink in.
To be sure, no one expects the core Middle Bakken formation to take a backseat anytime soon, but indications are mounting that a role reversal of sorts may happen. Between a newly released doubling of recoverable reserve estimates, and a premier operator’s recent flowrates from a previously unexplored lower zone, it would not be entirely farfetched to envision the underlying Three Forks/Sanish emerging as a horizon of choice in the more-than-200,000-sq-mi, liquids-rich hybrid play.
Part 1: In this first of two monthly reports, the authors review various artificial lift technologies and highlight innovations in beam/rod pumping and hydraulic piston pumps.
The largest-ever suite of MWD/LWD data acquired for an ultra-deepwater well offshore Angola aided in the design of optimum BHAs and wireline programs for subsequent wells.
IC technology was successfully applied in an offshore field, in the South China Sea, to provide an efficient water-injection method for optimizing pressure support, as well as sweep.
This is the most comprehensive handbook in advanced drilling technology, guiding the petroleum engineer to mitigate risks, manage the reservoir effectively and recognize new opportunities.
This 2‐hour documentary is the most comprehensive video available about oil and gas drilling.
