Chesapeake Energy and Schlumberger collaborate to solve gas blocking, significantly improve uptime of ESPs in difficult wells.
Artificial lift coaxes oil to the surface, stimulates production, and extends a project’s lifespan by up to 10%.
Integrated systems provide operators with single-source approach to well revival.
With HP/HT operations becoming the norm, drilling and formation evaluation technologies must ensure that systems can withstand extreme levels of shock, vibration, and pressure surges.
Glass fiber based thermoset composites handle high temperatures and extreme pressures yet are easily drilled out in downhole applications.
A new methodology has significantly expanded the operational envelope of wireline.
Predicting reserves and production estimates in complex reservoirs is becoming less challenging with new formation evaluation tools.
It is exactly 43 years since the first exploration well was spudded on the NCS. The well, located in the North Sea, was dry, but it paved the way for the successes to come, amounting to proven reserves of more than 60 Bboe throughout the NCS.
Recently rolled out government incentives, attempting to attract investment in the more challenging new UK fields, are a positive sign of government and stakeholder engagement.
CCS is held up by many as a necessary means to combat climate change, while others claim that it has no place in a future of sustainable energy supply. For the energy industry the question is: How can future demands be met with low CO2 emitting energy?
CCS has dominated global thinking on CO2 emissions reduction and has led to industry projects that are pushing the envelope of today’s technology. One newly introduced concept is a large-scale, non-excavated geologic storage system that can store large volumes of CO2.
Brazil’s massive presalt reserves and the need for development open opportunities for services providers.
