Tech Report: UAE Operator Reduces Friction Factors by 50% and Improves Expected Production by 30%

VERSAPRO and VERSA-OUT systems enable operator to set country record for longest lateral to be drilled and completed

UAE Operator Reduces Friction Factors by 50% and Improves Expected Production by 30%

Publication Date: 06/22/2016

An operator planned to drill a 3,634-m lateral section of an ERD well and perform an openhole completion, which would set a record for the longest horizontal section and longest liner in the UAE. The success of this job depended on reducing the coefficient of friction (COF) from 0.30 to 0.15 and ensuring that the completion was not impaired by the filtercake created by the drilling fluid.
