SPE Workshop: Slim Hole Drilling and Completion - The Way Forward 7 - 8 May 2018 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Oil prices have gradually increased and stabilised towards the end of last year, and now the industry is getting ready to steadily move forward in more efficient and cost-conscious ways. Among the lessons learned in the low oil price environment is that some not commonly applied, but proven, techniques can be further explored and optimised in search of even lower well cost. One of those techniques is working with small diameter boreholes.

The workshop will cover the philosophy, experiences and best practices for this technique. In addition, we will look at existing and new methods and designs used to overcome the technical challenges inherent to slim hole drilling and completion. Recent developments and technological advancements that can help address well design complexities, completion intricacies, operational risks, efficiency enhancement and maximise benefit realization will also be discussed. There will be a spotlight on managing completions intricacies, mitigating risks and applying intelligent and fit-for-purpose completions that minimise intervention, simplify operations and extend well life.
