Schlumberger people, tools, and procedures can help you reduce the risks inherent in drilling and evaluating high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) wells. Because each HPHT province presents unique challenges, the key to our success is detailed planning by a trained and experienced team and use of appropriate technology.
Many of our drilling and MWD and LWD tools are available with pressure ratings up to 30,000 psi and temperature ratings up to 392 degF. The proven reliability and survivability of these downhole tools has contributed to the success of HPHT projects once considered uneconomic, in the North Sea and elsewhere.
Schlumberger engineers, manufactures, and operates directional drilling and MLWD services, turbines, hydraulic jars, and M-I SWACO drilling fluids rated for HT environments. We have collaborated closely with the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the United States National Energy Technology Laboratory to develop and test technology rated to 200 degC [392 degF].
Our wide range of drilling services has a successful track record for HT applications, and our field engineers and maintenance personnel are fully HT certified. Before and after each job, tools undergo the rigorous Schlumberger HT Drilling Maintenance Procedures to ensure optimal performance. Field personnel plan and execute operations according to stringent HT Drilling Operations Procedures.
Operating at 200 degC, ICE services expand your ability to
accurately and efficiently reach targets
in ultrahigh-temperature reservoirs without
special operating procedures.
