This paper discusses novel approaches that resulted in the successful drilling, completion, and production from shallow and unconsolidated clastic reservoirs, offshore Brunei.

As a result of these new approaches, detailed planning, continuous and open communication throughout the development project, the candidate well was drilled successfully, with the directional, well placement, and completion requirements being achieved. In addition, the application of new sand control technologies coupled with specifically engineered procedural solutions assured sand-free production at a rate above expectations.
