An unconventional tubular-running system circulates, reciprocates and rotates a casing string in a complex extended-reach well.
Rigorous log-based analysis helps operators determine rock mechanical properties.
A dopant-free, single-mode optical fiber delivered accurate temperature profiles for many months in a Western Canadian SAGD well, while conventional fiber quickly succumbed to “hydrogen darkening."
An inflow control device completion method used to perform horizontal hole segmentation enhances uniform production.
Tubing punch enhances safety, by eliminating the use of explosives, and is more cost-effective than e-line soft-shot methods.
Millions of impacts per minute break rock faster than standard bits for high ROP, while field testing improves particle injection.
The tool tested successfully for pump protection in a Canadian oil field, leading the manufacturer to create a line of downhole desanders specifically for oil and gas applications.
Applying biotechnology to increase microbial activity enhanced production by about 102,900 bbl.
Sand injectites are present in deepwater deposits across the globe, and understanding their attributes is necessary to successful E&P in sand injectite provinces.
Electrophoretic migration enhances drilling fluid properties and performance and also reduces environmental impact.
A flurry of experimentation advances the resolution and usefulness of increasingly complex azimuths in seismic acquisition.
A new federal assessment estimates the recoverable oil resources for the continuous, unconventional formation at 3.6 billion bbl.
This exclusive annual listing shows trade names, generic descriptions, recommended usage and suppliers of more than 3,300 fluid system additives for drilling, completions and workovers.
