Paper presented at the SPE Permian Basin Oil and Gas Recovery Conference, March 21–23, 2000
Paper Number: SPE-59552-MS
... Abstract Increasing sensitivity to crude price fluctuations will require operators to reduce costs for drilling, completion and production operations. A key component of this strategy is the collaborative management of equipment assets by operators and suppliers to reduce cost over...

... the inability of getting wells drilled according to a budgeted schedule serves to illustrate how several of these principles applied to the problem resulted in vastly improved performance. Introduction Many in the petroleum industry believe that Deming's principles and techniques are perhaps relevant...

... (Canyon) and Sawyer (Canyon), with more than 4,000 total wells, contain the majority of wells in the Canyon Sand trend of Crockett, Edwards, Schleicher and Sutton Counties in Southwest Texas. Average ultimate recovery for the fields decreased from 1,100 MMCF/well for wells drilled in 1970 to 400 MMCF/well...

... of these units has re- sulted in extensive in-fill drilling from 1991 through 1995. The consolidation of large tracts of unitized Spraberry pro- duction under one operator combined with a plentiful, lo- cal and relatively inexpensive supply of C02 has raised some interesting questions. This paper addresses...

Abstract A significant reduction of drilling and completion costs in the Eumont and lalmat Fields of Lea County, New Mexico has resulted in the continuation of Co no co's development program in a soft gas price environment. Average 1995 costs for drilling, completion and facilities...
