Industry Article The Defining Series: Intelligent Completions
Subsea completions are remotely controlled and accessed through wellheads that rest on the seafloor.
Well construction brings workflows together to seamlessly bridge the gap between drilling and completions. We put the right information in the right hands at the right time so we can deliver a smart drilling program that maximizes accuracy, efficiency, and value—while also minimizing risks.
We develop a digital plan for intelligent drilling execution that enables efficient handoff to a digitally informed completion team for optimal hardware and fluids delivery to prepare the wellbore and the reservoir for production. The integrated preparation and analysis mean that, when challenges arise, contingencies are in place to maintain project progress and continuously improve the process from well to well.
Well construction means integrating activities, processes, people, and technology; monitoring deviations; and providing solutions that allow for dynamic changes to the plan and improving learning for the next time.
Confidently reenter existing wells to add laterals that increase reserves while minimizing investment.
Prepare selective access and multiple kickoff points for current and future sidetracks and multilateral wellbores.
Stabilize and strengthen the casing and control sand at the multilateral junction.
Save time on your completion by enabling fracturing in both the lateral bore and main bore in a single trip.
Reduce costs with multilateral technology that is compatible with conventional completion options.
Isolate up to 2,500 psi [17.2 MPa] at the junction, and combine simple installation with flexibility.
Maximize performance with a junction rated to 10,000-psi differential pressure.
Enhance well stability and protect the casing with liner hanger systems that suit a wide range of well conditions.
Deploy heavy and long liners in drilldown applications, even in deep land, deepwater, and HPHT wells, to save time and enable rotation.
Run long and heavy liners with confidence, even in HPHT conditions, with or without liner rotation during running or cementing.
Hang long and heavy liners with high pressure integrity at the liner top and maximum support for your casing on land or offshore.
Hang and rotate long and heavy liners with high pressure integrity at the liner top and maximum support for your casing.
Hang extremely heavy liners in heavy-wall casing with tight annular clearance.
Simplify liner deployment in nontraditional completions such as slotted liners, screens, multistage stimulation, and steam injection.
Reduce remediation costs in damaged thermal wells with a scab liner hanger designed to simplify and optimize repairs.
Deploy long, heavy liners in challenging conditions, including deepwater, extended-reach, and HPHT wells, with expandable, metal-to-metal sealing for the life of the well.
Simplify casing repairs to keep drilling programs on schedule and secure well integrity for P&A.
Drill in, rotate, and reciprocate long, heavy liners in HPHT wells while maintaining maximum liner top integrity.
Solve problems with long casing strings by connecting a liner to a tieback string with full V0-qualified casing integrity.
