A comparison of production data from cemented and uncemented vertical wells in the Delaware basin area of the Permian basin showed that open-hole, multi-stage technology is a viable option for operators.
In the complex geology of Russia’s Verkhnechonskoye condensate field, the ability to build an accurate petrophysical model, to describe the present mineral composition, was a challenge.
Digital core flow simulations can now replicate familiar lab results.
Part 2: In this second of two monthly reports, the authors highlight innovations in ESPs, PCPs and plunger lift systems.
A proof-of-concept was achieved by integrating towed-streamer EM data with 3D seismic data and well logs, to derive the total hydrocarbon volume in a vertical section through two reservoirs.
Russia’s upstream sector strives for dominance in an increasingly complex, global E&P industry
Part 1: Logging-while-drilling (LWD) and openhole wireline logging. New LWD developments include an update on recent telemetry methods, improvements in directional survey accuracy, and LWD nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
Via the EPA, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency, and other mechanisms, the Obama administration continues to promulgate rules and regulations that seem deliberately designed to impede E&P activity on both federal and private lands
Decline rate, gas flaring top hit list of Williston operators
The Oil & Gas Innovations Center’s 2014 Showcase presented new developments across the technology spectrum, from soluble films to remote video collaboration and nanotechnology-based chemicals, that may become practical oilfield applications in years to come.
As operators contend with increasingly stringent regulations and ever-tighter budgets, a new technique, vacuum thermal desorption, offers an economical approach for removal of drilling fluids from cuttings.
