Abstract

We examine how well completion design is governed by subsurface characteristics, surface environment, and state of technology. We present a methodology of well design that takes into account geology, drilling, reservoir, and operational characteristics and constraints. The method selects pertinent configurations for well trajectory, formation completion, and wellbore components to segment, route, lift, and monitor the flow stream. We discuss how this methodology is derived from case histories in land, platform, and subsea fields.
