... contact thru the curve section. By keeping both the curve and the lateral within the desired portion of the reservoir, there is a better chance of avoiding undesirable gas and or water invasion (SPE 118661). Reducing the TVD between the kickoff and the reservoir minimizes the differential pressure...

.... For similar multilateral wells in the past, this challenge was addressed by installing the upper completion before the stimulation treatment was done. The shortcoming to this completion design was that since access to the upper laterals was not possible after installation of the ICS, only the...

... From simple slotted-liner installations in the lateral bores in the early days, multilateral (MLT) completions today have evolved to include gravel-packed and frac-packed laterals (the latter is still evolving). When heavy oil was exploited in the Orinoco Belt in the late 1990s and into the next...

In shale and tight-gas plays, it is possible to fracture each leg of a multilateral well without compromising the integrity of the junction. To isolate the junction from the stimulation fluids, a temporary Level-5 completion can be used, which...
