Schlumberger has a long-standing commitment to being an organization with a focus on technology innovation. That commitment was recognized once again this year by the annual World Oil Awards.
The World Oil Awards recognizes the upstream oil and gas industry's leading innovations. Now in its 15th year, the 2016 awards "Rising to the Challenge: Innovative Technologies" honored several Schlumberger technologies as best in class.
Best Completion Technology Award
Manara production and reservoir management system, developed in collaboration with Saudi Aramco and Schlumberger, provides downhole permanent monitoring and in-lateral flow control of multiple zones and compartments in real time—for the first time, even in multilateral wells.
Best Drilling and Completion Fluids Award
HydraGlyde high-performance water-base drilling fluid system, from M-I SWACO, a Schlumberger company, delivers an oil-base mud–comparable rate of penetration (ROP), exceptional hole cleaning, and superb wellbore stability in high-angle build and long-lateral sections.
Best HSE/Sustainable Development–Onshore Award
xWATER Integrated Water-Flexible Fracturing Fluid Delivery Service, enables 100% reuse of produced water, while reducing or eliminating costs associated with water acquisition, transportation or conveyance, water treatment, and disposal.
Best Well Intervention Technology Award
ProMILL trip-saving milling and underreaming system combines an underreamer and a section mill in one single-trip solution, achieving rock-to-rock zonal isolation and preparing the foundation for an abandonment cement barrier. Performing both operations in the same trip not only saves rig time and improves ROP but ensures plug integrity for confident plug and abandonment decisions.
