Paper presented at the Annual Technical Meeting, June 13–17, 1999
Paper Number: PETSOC-99-63
... Abstract A procedure is described that allows an operator to identify artificial lift wells which are operating inefficiently. A logical sequence of steps is presented for acquiring performance data such as casing annulus fluid level, casing pressure, bottomhole pressure, dynamometer analysis...

... these conclusions, we call learn a lesson of proper arrangement in the schedule of duty in drilling operations. A training program of the well blowout operation and methods of prevention will be provided to drilling operators, in order to improve their ability of dealing with the blowouts and avoiding...

... overseas markets. Many operators understand the concept of underbalanced drilling but do not understand the ‘process’ of gaining that knowledge, research, equipment and personnel to drill their own particular reservoirs underbalanced. This paper sets out to look at the basic procedures of putting together...

... of a gas injection project which concerns the interaction between the level of interfacial tension and the mobility 'effects. By appropriately quantifying whether a reservoir is going to be IFT or mobility-dominated, the operator can concentrate on designing a gas to optimize the factor which is...

... technology. The advent of rotating BOP's and " Closed-System" surface facilities to handle drilling fluids and produced hydrocarbons has greatly increased the safety and efficiency of the drilling operation. Many of the " short term" benefits of UBD, such as increased penetration rate, and evaluation of the...

... techniques have evolved to increase the value of "minifrac" tests. In recent years, the popularity of completing wells in coal formations has led to the use of minifrac applications in these wells as operators attempt to better understand how coals respond to hydraulic fracturing. Although some operators...

At the other end of the spectrum, however, similar data, particularly low recovery, may be noted on a drill stem test of another well, the operator set pipe, stimulated the zone, and ended up with a dry hole. With some...
