Add laterals to increase reserves with minimal investment

RAPID multilateral systems enable you to consistently and repeatedly add laterals to increase reserves while minimizing investment.

Laterals can be planned as part of a greenfield development strategy from the outset to reduce total well count or to overcome the challenges of developing a complex field with horizontal extended-reach multilateral wells. They can also be added later during reentry as retrofit multilaterals to maintain production from the original well while targeting a nearby reservoir resource or to target and produce from accretive reserves while reducing surface or subsea infrastructure cost, lead time, and complexity.

Multilaterals

Whether you're developing a reservoir on land or offshore, Schlumberger has the technology you need to optimize your field development costs. Onshore, for example, surface constraints for conventional or unconventional fields can be eliminated. Offshore, on fixed or floating platforms with dry trees, slot limitations and near-platform collision avoidance challenges are reduced or eliminated because you can select the optimal well—whether producing or not—for interception of the primary reservoir target to produce. This value is also seen for offshore subsea developments, in addition to the elimination of procuring and installing the associated subsea infrastructure.

Vår Energi Saves Millions with Industry’s First Subsea Retrofit Multilateral Wells
Without adding additional infrastructure, RapidX junctions deliver access to up to 8,000,000 bbl of oil from subsea reservoirs with minimal CO2 emissions impact.
READ CASE STUDY
TAML 2
Cased and cemented main bore with an openhole lateral. An unsupported slotted liner or screen may be installed in the lateral.
TAML 3
Cased and cemented main bore with an openhole lateral. A slotted liner or screen is set in the lateral and anchored in the main bore, offering mechanical support of the junction.
TAML 4
Cased and cemented main bore and lateral. The cemented lateral provides mechanical support, but the cement does not provide pressure integrity for the junction.
TAML 5
Cased and cemented main bore and lateral. Pressure integrity across the junction is achieved through use of tubing and isolation packers.
