US Onshore Pressure Pumpers Adjusting to New Market Demands
Higher oil prices and higher-intensity completions are increasing the need for US onshore pressure pumping horsepower. Will still recovering pressure pumpers and equipment manufacturers be able to step up?
Need for Reserves Replacement Drives Exploration Investment
Despite an abundance of discovered resources, most companies are still running at unsustainable reserves replacement levels, necessitating further investment in exploration of conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
Seeking Ways To Produce More Oil by Doing Better Fluid Imaging
Electromagnetic (EM) reservoir imaging is likely to get more attention from operators thanks to a collaboration between Halliburton and a leader in this emerging technology, GroundMetrics.
Why Can’t We Apply Advanced Technologies More Often to Vertical Wells in Mature Fields?
The oil and gas industry should pay more attention to mature vertical wells but it first must consider technology and cost.
Seeking Big Oil Production Gains By Fracturing With Microproppant
Early testing suggests that grains of proppant so small they need to be measured in microns can add production by slowing the notoriously rapid declines in unconventional wells.
Halliburton Reveals Refracturing Strategy
Although refracturing is a topic that has gained a lot of interest, many shale producers have been sitting on the sidelines because early results did not justify the spending
