Video What are the main challenges of intelligent completions?
Introduction to completions
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.
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.

Find the individual technologies you need to develop a customized intelligent completion system that suits your application and economics.
Rely on real-time downhole data to identify reservoir trends, and react quickly to optimize production.
Monitor with distributed temperature sensing (DTS) and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) systems.
Manage production or injection flow in multizone intelligent completions with surface-controlled valves.
Manage production or injection with reliable packers designed for your reservoir and completion.
Enable retrieval of the upper completion without disturbing the lower intelligent completion.
Choose software, connectors, cables, and surface data acquisition and control units designed for your well conditions.
Integrated modular unit to simplify well design, reduce installation complexity, and enhance downhole control.
Robust system enables cost-effective integration of an intelligent completion with an ESP in multistage wells, including multilaterals.
