Rehabilitating old fields from a single drilling location can be challenging.
Better cooperation between engineers and geoscientists, along with each side recognizing some basic drilling and geosteering principles, and their inherent trade-offs, and applying the right tools to the project, can help operator/service teams come closer to drilling the “perfect” well.
Hand protection is a key component of reliable and safe operation in the oil and gas industry.
Production rising despite anti-drilling backlash
Ocean currents create vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) on marine risers and other cylindrical objects, creating friction against the structure’s surface.
The success or failure of secondary recovery in low-permeability reservoirs depends on several factors.
A new equation-of–state simulator was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Since its launch in 2012, IsoMetrix marine seismic technology has been deployed successfully around four continents.
The nozzle valve is a direct competitor of the traditional orifice valve, and may replace it with advantages.
Despite geopolitical turmoil, Middle Eastern and North African exploration and licensing activity levels remain strong, with the MENA region producing over one-third of the world's oil and one-fifth of global gas.
Given the wide variety of potential gas leak sources, the development of ultrasonic gas detectors for wellhead applications is an important step in providing effective, efficient coverage, on top of traditional gas detection solutions for challenging environments.
