07 Well Intervention Applications II

Session Chairpersons:

Ricardo Quintero, Welltec; Bob Fraser, Penn West Exploration

Different well interventions are carried out to extend the life of producing wells. This session will present applications using alternative technologies that challenge drilling, milling, and conventional operations; review the latest developments in equipment and tools; and detail latest-generation software modeling that can assist in optimizing operations efficiency in horizontal wells. We will also cover successes recorded in non-rig operations environments.
