Going the Extra Mile: Using ball-activated systems to simplify stimulation of toe stages for extended reach laterals

Technological and operational improvements have made it possible to drill longer laterals and complete wells with higher stage counts and fracture intensity. However, limitations of wireline and coiled tubing used to deploy plugs and perforate casing can prevent the toe stages of extended reach laterals from being effectively stimulated. This paper describes some of the completion solutions available that can help improve operations by mitigating risks that can lead to unplanned nonproductive time, cost overruns and lost production.

How Two Innovative, IADC-accredited Training Programs are Improving Marine and Drilling Compliance

Interactive regulatory compliance training programs can ease the process of marine and offshore drilling regulatory compliance. The oil and gas industry is continually focused on safety and compliance to ensure the safety of offshore workers and the environment. The industry is challenged to interpret and implement changes in a constantly evolving regulatory environment. Understanding the regulations is imperative to make sure all of the standards are being followed and that offshore assets are in compliance.

Achieve Accurate Process Temperature Measurement with Surface Sensor Innovation

Designing, specifying and installing a thermowell can take days, if not weeks, especially when you need to perform wake frequency calculations to verify process compatibility. Eliminate the complex challenges associated with thermowells by leveraging a simple technology that provides an accurate process temperature measurement without an intrusive installation. The new surface sensor innovation addresses these issues by eliminating the thermowell altogether and replacing it with a surface measurement that can provide an accurate process temperature.
