First ultra-deepwater integrated completion system
As operators began to set their sights on the huge reserves in the Gulf of Mexico’s Lower Tertiary and other ultra-deepwater plays, the disparity between today’s “conventional” deepwater completions technology and what is needed for tomorrow’s wells became increasingly pronounced. Safe, economic development of these reservoirs would require a step change in technology—and a new approach to collaboration and integration. In 2012, Baker Hughes announced the creation of its Lower Tertiary Integrated Product Team (IPT)—an integrated cross-functional group dedicated to closing the frontier technology gap in anticipation of today’s ultra-deepwater opportunities. The IPT’s first mission was to design and deliver the Hammerhead system—the industry’s first ultra-deepwater wellhead-to-reservoir integrated completion and production solution.
