Maximizing Drilling Performance Makes Marginal Fields Pay

In 2008, EnQuest recommenced production from the North Sea Don oilfield, which the previous owners had planned to decommission. To minimize cost, redevelopment was from a relatively low-spec semi-submersible built in 1982. An integrated project team, including Schlumberger and M-I SWACO, provided extended reach directional drilling services using PowerDrive Xceed, advanced LWD, and high-speed telemetry. In one well, a North Sea record of 11,650 ft (3,812m) was achieved before pulling out to change the bit.
