Much of the successful exploitation of the tight gas reservoirs in the US and Canada is due to the ability to cost-effectively drill, complete, and hydraulically fracture horizontal wells. A big part of cost savings comes from innovations in fracturing.
A new study indicates Brazilian analogs.
With the increased demand for greater efficiencies in drilling operations, oil and gas companies are searching for new means of using all available data while drilling.
A complete formation evaluation suite in a single, compact LWD package is quickly gaining respect as a robust solution to complex reservoir problems.
By acquiring and interpreting the proper set of measurements while drilling, geosteering engineers can locate the well path in real time with respect to the geological boundaries and guide the progress of the well.
A new prospectivity study puts old doubts to rest.
A new system saves time and reduces environmental impact.
As the water treatment of oilfield brines by desalination increases, the use of all desalination technique packages continues to grow.
An alliance between Ecopetrol, S.A. and Schlumberger revitalized the mature, complex Casabe field, located in Colombia.
When it comes to offshore construction projects, success often comes from thinking differently, focusing expertise, respecting lessons learned, and being able to look at something familiar from a new perspective.
Innovative solutions are pushing the limits of offshore construction and installation. Enhanced vessels are allowing heavier lifts at greater depths, while new approaches adapt current technologies.
Success in Brazil will depend on a perspective that takes advantage of every step in the E&P process.
