A field trial in Uzbekistan applied radial drilling to access residual oil trapped between existing wells in a mature field.
In selecting a drilling rig for the actual geological environment of well construction, a decision support system can reduce the cost per unit, construction time cycle and simplify the design complexity of the well.
Deployment of the MPD system enhanced on-site safety and reduced potential environmental risk by establishing a more efficient operation, including fewer drilling days, smaller influx volumes and safer handling of surface gas.
Advances in new drill bit technology moved at an accelerating pace in the past year, as engineers continued to design bits to drill larger, higher-quality holes with better rates of penetration and more control.
Relative permeability is one of the most uncertain terms in multiphase flow through porous media.
There is no question that sustained low prices for natural gas have taken their toll on the Haynesville shale play of northwestern Louisiana and East Texas.
In the wake of tougher regulations, many oil and gas companies have established or expanded risk management systems integrated company-wide, or enterprise risk management (ERM).
The plug-and-perf system creates multiple hydraulic fractures in a horizontal well completed with a cemented casing/liner.
Alternating between weak and strong cation exchange, the treatment system reduced hardness to less than 1 mg/L without the use of hazardous acid and caustic for softener regeneration.
High levels of upstream activity continue in the region, despite uncertain times due to political turmoil
In its 87th year, the 2011 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) will focus on developing shale resources, particularly the special requirements in the Rocky Mountain Niobrara and Bakken shale formations.
Saudi Aramco’s EOR program employing 3⅞-in. sidetracks with high doglegs has necessitated the use of logging tools capable of accessing these small boreholes.
