Access reserves without additional infrastructure

A case study from Norway shows how using retrofit multilateral completion systems and collaboration enables operators to increase production by targetting accretive reserves without additional infrastructure to satisfy the industry's imperatives of cost, capital, and carbon reduction. Nishant Jha, Business Line Director, Well Production Systems, walks us through the collaborative production journey with Vår Energi in Goliat Field of the Barents Sea.

Because no well slots were open, two wells were retrofitted as multilaterals with production contribution monitored and controlled via modular intelligent completions equipment and RapidX TAML 5 high-strength, hydraulic-sealed multilateral junctions. In addition to the time and cost savings in achieving accretive production, an estimated 5,000–10,000 t of CO2 equivalent emissions was saved by not drilling two new subsea wells and installing the required subsea infrastructure.
