As applied to potential development of an Alaskan field, vertical permeability problems can be solved by using an analytical model to design a horizontal well with undulations.
Several technologies now exist that, when combined, will allow extended reach drilling to achieve astonishing lengths. However, the cost of these technologies—the business case—will be unique for each situation.
A North Slope ERD record of 13,379 ft was set at Alpine field by optimizing point-the-bit RSS with a “matched," extended-gauge drillbit.
For steam-assisted gravity drainage wells, staggered slot and gang slot patterns show better performance in FEA models than overlapping slot patterns.
Extensive modeling and yard testing were used to solve the problem of damage sustained after centralizers exited casing windows at West Sak field.
Perhaps the Gulf of Mexico became isolated during the Lower Tertiary, which would explain a series of events that led to deposition of thick, extensive, mostly sandy reservoirs more than 200 mi from shore. These reservoirs are now being explored.
A US Department of Energy-sponsored website attempts to help operators manage an increasingly costly waste stream.
In a simulation, the proposed, simple procedure increased oil production and API gravity at no added cost.
Achieving cost-effective performance begins with matching well conditions with brine properties.
A virtual source can be any seismic sensor that, through some simple mathematics, is then moved around in new ways to get interesting results.
