Video What are multilateral wells?
Introduction to completions
Multilateral technology enables you to confidently reenter existing wells to add laterals that increase reserves while minimizing investment. For example, you can drill an additional lateral to increase reservoir exposure or branch more than one lateral to increase reservoir exposure and target complex reservoirs.
Whether you’re working on land or offshore, Schlumberger has the technology you need to optimize your well. Offshore, for example, slot-limited platforms can benefit from adding laterals to an existing wellbore as compared with creating a new platform and drilling new wells to reach the same reserves.
Multilateral Completion Systems Offerings
First Intelligent multilateral TAML5 wells on Filanovskogo Field is the great example of how new technologies help to optimize CAPEX, and, thanks to higher productivity index, achieve higher production rate.
Integrated technologies address numerous technical challenges in challenging oil rim environment in the Caspian Sea.
The TAML-5 intelligent extended reach drilling (ERD) offshore well was the first of this type in the North Caspian Sea. The initial preparation and detailed follow up allowed to complete the well in a timely manner, without non-productive time and without deviation from the plan.
