Abstract

A service company was challenged to deliver best-in-class upper and lower completions by leveraging deep water completion experiences throughout West Africa with the operator and service company's global best practices and lessons learnt. An operator reduced lower completion times, standalone screens, and open hole gravel packs by 60% between the 1st and 24th well while reducing upper completion times by 40% for the same wells. Well construction durations, including drilling and completion, currently averages 24 days per well, with lower and upper completion operating efficiencies and run reliabilities exceeding 97%.
