Managed pressure drilling is often viewed as a means of drilling extreme wells. But real-time wellbore information, acquired with MPD, points toward a major role in minimizing health, safety and environmental issues on challenging offshore wells being drilled with conventional fluids and cementing programs.
A riser-fatigue monitoring system (RFMS) has been developed to provide field measurements of drilling riser stress and fatigue in near-real-time. During the two deployments on the Chikyu drilling riser, the system successfully recorded riser dynamics in the field, capturing a number of riser excitation events.
Crude oil production increased 790,000 bopd between 2011 and 2012, the largest annual increase since the beginning of U.S. commercial production in 1859. In its Short-Term Energy Outlook, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects that U.S. crude oil output will continue rising over the next two years, led by production from tight formations in Texas and North Dakota.
Anyone who has ever bought a penny stock, and unloaded it a few weeks later for a very tidy profit, has a pretty good idea of the attraction that an eclectic bevy of independents has for the liquids-laden Mississippi Lime.
A new production logging service deployed on fiber-optic-embedded coiled tubing helped Pemex reduce uncertainty and make the right decision to avoid serious production losses
India’s oil and gas industry is earnestly pursuing exploration opportunities, despite the absence of major discoveries. On the field development side, operators are combating declining production through IOR and EOR technologies. Faced with this reality, both private and public sector companies are looking at international E&P opportunities, as well as sourcing oil and LNG supplies.
