Sweepscan improves waterflood performance
Read & Discuss (0 Comments)

Analyzing Waterflood Communication: In this month’s blog, Baker Hughes reservoir engineering consultants Shelia Marsh and Atul Kshirsagar contribute to the blog. I also appreciate Neil Meldrum and Edwin Jong’s input. One key to optimizing oil recovery and determining production potential of waterflooded fields is through reservoir surveillance. Geological studies alone cannot quantify potential increases in […]

This dummy valve is “smart” Gas lift is an artificial lift technology that uses gas injected (generally) from the surface through an opening in the production tubing to lower the density of the liquid column, allowing the well to be produced. In most modern completions, gas enters through one or more gas lift valves placed […]

Deepwater exploration, development and production present unique challenges to operators. Safe operations and protecting the environment are primary requirements. Minimizing risks and maximizing recovery are also among their top priorities. With average worldwide rig day rates remaining higher than $300,000 (drillships and semisubmersible rigs), there is no room for unexpected costs resulting from nonproductive time. […]
