Drilling The First Well

Overview Technologies

Schlumberger provides a wide range of services that can be tailored to your drilling environment minimizing NPT.

Petrel Well Path Design

The module, which allows geoscientists and drilling engineers to work together to deliver optimum well paths, designed in 3D.

Drilling Fluid Systems

NPT can be minimized by carefully designing drilling fluid systems and additives that can be customized to meet a variety of drilling challenges, often encountered in exploration drilling. Deepwater and subsalt drilling can often be subject to high-temperatures, stuck pipe and unforeseen casing problems.

Improved solids-removal capability and minimal formation damage help reduce drilling costs, as well as the ability to stabilize mechanically weak and poorly consolidated formations.

Pore Pressure Imaging and Analysis

Schlumberger employs a proprietary vertical-effective, stress-based pore pressure prediction method with core concepts.

Cementing Services

Whatever your drilling environment or however remote the location, our innovative cementing technologies offer you a range of cementing solutions to achieve zonal isolation for the life of your well.

Barrier Integrity

Cement placement is a critical component of well architecture for ensuring casing mechanical support, protection from fluid corrosion, and isolating permeable zones at different pressure regimes to prevent hydraulic communication.
