YOUNG TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE
Young Technology Showcase—Top-Down Modeling: A Shift in Building Full-Field Models for Mature Fields
Data-driven, or top-down, modeling uses machine learning and data mining to develop reservoir models based on measurements, rather than solutions of governing equations.
Young Technology Showcase—Metal-Formed Liner Hanger Avoids High-Setting-Pressure Requirements
Seminole Services’ Powerscrew Liner System is a new expandable-liner hanger that is set with torsional energy from the topdrive.
Turning Weakness Into Strength: Hydraulic Pipe-Recovery System
Stuck pipe has traditionally been a challenge for the oil and gas industry; in recent years, operators have become even more determined to reduce the effect of stuck-pipe issues.
Calibration of Rebound Hardness Numbers to Unconfined Compressive Strength in Shale Formations
The primary purpose of this study is to develop a method that overcomes the restrictions of rock-mechanics tests with respect to unconventional shale formations.
