With Over 200 Shale Well Installs, This Slug-Smoothing Lift Technology Is Boosted By Schlumberger JV
Slug flow has made the life of an unconventional production engineer a bit complicated, but a new downhole technology may smooth things right out by solving some big artificial lift problems for the shale sector.
Permian Production Boom to Continue, Says Laredo CEO
Industry efficiency gains in the Permian Basin are “very pivotal and we’re not done. We’re still making improvements,” says Laredo Petroleum’s Randy Foutch.
Fiber-Optic Leak-Detection Project
This paper discusses the objectives of the Fiber-Optic Leak-Detection (FOLD) project, carried out in Verneuil-en-Halatte, France.
Industry trends in production monitoring and surveillance continue to demonstrate significant input from the academic and research fields, practical applications, and new-technology introduction. Market conditions similar to those of the previous year are driving some of the same discussions.
Initial Impressions of Wells May Be Misleading
A new study questions whether the most widely reported production data is the best indicator of future output.
Prediction of Critical Gas Velocity of Liquid Unloading for Entire Well Deviation
Liquid loading is a common production problem in mature gas wells. Correct prediction of the critical gas velocity at which the well starts to load is very important for taking action to prevent premature loss of production.
