Finding and producing new hydrocarbon reserves involves contending with increasingly harsh downhole conditions. Attractive new prospects like deepwater high-pressure wells in the Gulf of Mexico, the increasing use of thermal recovery techniques, and the commercial viability of previously uneconomic plays has dramatically increased the requirement for HPHT technology.
Multiple temperature and pressure cycles together with shocks and vibration at different frequencies realistically simulate field conditions. Designing and operating equipment that can withstand these hostile environments is difficult but the real challenge is to deliver high-quality measurements reliably. Schlumberger has long been a leader in bringing metrology to the oil field delivering purpose-built, exhaustively tested, field-proven services and products for every stage of an HPHT well.
A complete range of products including drill bits, rotary steerable systems (RSS), turbodrills, MLWD equipment, drilling fluids, and cement, with associated services.
Wireline logging and well testing services to accurately characterize your reservoir rocks and fluids.
Completions services and products for optimizing productivity.
Proper preparation for hostile conditions is a combination of proven risk assessment and mitigation process coupled with a real-time feedback loop during the actual job execution.
