A novel approach to casing preparation after drilling

With increased well costs, particularly in deepwater wells, the benefits of combining operations in one trip are too good to ignore. With new advances in technology it is now possible to combine what was two trips into one, saving considerable time and money. Your drilling bottom hole assembly (BHA) can now be designed to allow casing preparation operations to be performed immediately post drilling.

Inflow (Negative) Testing – Why & how?


When drilling the well and running tubulars, the drilling fluid will have a higher density than the reservoir/formation fluids to prevent any hydrocarbon influx. Prior to running in the production completion, the well is displaced to a lighter density completion fluid to encourage the hydrocarbons to flow into the wellbore and up the production tubing. If any integrity issues in the connections or the casing/liner overlap are present this could affect the overall efficiency of well production recovery, in addition to posing safety & integrity issues of the well construction. Hydrocarbons could potentially by-pass any safety related equipment in the well completion string.

How to do BOP and marine riser clean up in fewest possible runs

Premature completion failure caused by debris interfering with valves, electronics and hardware is an ever-present threat. A robust clean up of the BOP and riser is proven to reduce this threat and the non-productive time during the completion of the well. By careful planning and the use of modern, effective methods, your pre-completion clean-up process will save you time and money.
