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.
Broadband Seismic Imaging in 3D
The Earth is complex in all directions, and hydrocarbon traps require closure—whether structural or stratigraphic or both—in three dimensions.
New Anchor Extends Insertable Progressing-Cavity-Pump Applications
In artificial-lift applications, a new anchoring device for insertable progressing-cavity pumps (I-PCPs) extends I-PCP applications to a larger set of candidate wells.
Fiber Optic Feed-Through Packer Technology Assists Multizone Fracturing and Production Monitoring
Fiber optic pressure and temperature (P/T) sensing technology for multizone fracturing and production monitoring is enabled by a new feed-through (FT) technology that integrates the optical fiber within the multiple elastomer elements of a compact, swellable openhole packer system.
New LWD Service Integrates Formation Fluid Analysis and Sampling
Determining the fluid properties of a reservoir by using pressure/volume/temperature (PVT) analysis is essential to petroleum reservoir studies, production equipment design, and reservoir recovery efficiency estimation.
Hot Bolt Clamp Addresses Corrosion Problem
Many operators have a register of flanged connections identified as having fitted stud bolts below acceptable standards and, on many occasions, in critical condition requiring urgent attention.
Condition and Performance Monitoring of Subsea Production Systems
Integrity management involves availability, access, and the analysis of necessary information.
Multipole Sonic-While-Drilling Technology Delivers Quality Data Regardless of Mud Slowness
As the pace of exploration and production activity accelerates and the cost of drilling, evaluating, and completing wells continues to rise in complex deepwater and unconventional plays, operators are seeking new logging-while-drilling (LWD) tools that offer real-time measurements.
