Completion methods used in the deep Anadarko Basin have varied a great deal over the past several years.

Due to an active exploration program in the basin, Sohio Petroleum Co. formed a Springer task force group to evaluate past methods and to develop and refine deep completion techniques in the Morrow and Springer formations. This group formulated guidelines based upon published literature and past experience of the group members.

The guidelines were implemented in the field and modified as more data and knowledge were obtained, resulting in a specific set of guidelines now used on all Morrow and Springer completions.

There are a number of case histories that illustrate the evolution and reasons behind the specific guidelines, which will be listed.
