Deployed on coiled tubing (CT) or wireline, a retrievable whipstock packer and latch system has reduced the number of trips required for total tool removal, while retaining the flexibility to leave the packer in the wellbore, thus ensuring continued flow of production
In Malcolm Gladwell’s interpretation of the David and Goliath story, Goliath, while immensely strong, is so blind that he must be led into battle by an attendant.
The global E&P industry is riding the crest of a wave, and nowhere is that more true than in the U.S. For the last three years—and for this fourth year as well—drilling activity has remained in a narrow band of not more than 4,000 wells’ difference.
