Many of our remaining hydrocarbon resources are in deep, remote and complex reservoirs. To access these reserves, engineers must deal with cold subsea wellheads, high bottomhole temperatures and surface temperature extremes that challenge personnel, equipment and chemistry. Case histories from Siberia, the Middle East, the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea demonstrate how new chemistries and engineering solutions are helping operators efficiently drill and produce the Earth's remote hydrocarbon resources.
