Podcast Interview: Electrifying Offshore Oil and Gas Production
Take a deeper dive into the World Oil article “Electrifying Offshore Oil and Gas Production” in this podcast with Nishant Jha, Director Well Production Systems. Topics range from how open collaboration drives more effective decision making to real-world examples of the agility provided by all-electric energy systems for unlocking an asset’s full potential with the smallest possible carbon footprint.

Monitor your reservoir and control production in real time

Intelligent completions incorporate permanent downhole sensors and surface-controlled downhole flow control valves, enabling you to monitor, evaluate, and actively manage production (or injection) in real time without any well interventions. Data is transmitted to surface for local or remote monitoring in your digital well platform.

Improve economics of subsea and onshore wells

Initially used in deepwater wells, where intervention is expensive and high-risk, intelligent completions have since proven their value in managing production from multilateral wells, horizontal wells with multiple zones, wells in heterogeneous reservoirs, and mature reservoirs.
