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 the industry is getting ready to steadily move forward efficiently and be more cost-conscious. Among the lessons learnt from 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 the techniques is working with small diameter boreholes.

This workshop will cover the philosophy, experiences and best practices for this technique. In addition to that, some focus will be directed on various existing and new methods and designs to overcome the technical challenges inherent to Slim Hole Drilling and Completion. Recent development and technology advancement will also be discussed to help address well design complexities, completions intricacies, operational risks, efficiency enhancement and maximise benefit realisation.

There will also be spotlight on applying intelligent and fit for purpose completions that minimise intervention and also exploring the completion options to potentially prevail over issues related to well life, recovery factor and etc.
