Multilateral wells reduce capex in subsea development ///

Multilateral technology uses fewer production well slots to effectively drain a reservoir, saving time, money and improving NPV. One of the benefits of multilateral (MLT) well architecture is the reduced cost of the subsea infrastructure. Additional cost benefits include reduced top-hole drilling costs, reduced project execution time, accelerated production, fewer rig moves and a smaller environmental footprint. To take advantage of the benefits, the appropriate multilateral technology must be selected to avoid introducing additional risk and non-productive time (NPT) to the project.
