Improve efficiency by integrating completion tools and services
To complete the well, Schlumberger recommended the MZ-Xpress system, which speeds up multizone sand control completions with single-trip operations. After the zones of interest are perforated and the well is cleaned, the MZ-Xpress system hardware is run into the well in a single trip, permitting rapid gravel or frac packing. The intermediate completion string with annular and tubing formation isolation valves is then installed to selectively isolate intervals, followed by the intelligent upper completion, which enabled real-time flow control of multiple zones to optimize production over the well life.
To minimize operation time, it was critical to integrate the full completion and gravel packing operations and ensure equipment and materials logistics. For the full campaign, Schlumberger tailored a FlexSTIM system, placing modular equipment on a standard supply vessel to reduce the footprint on the semisubmersible rig.
