Industry Article Future Offshore Well Construction to be Defined by Collaboration, Remote Solutions
How advanced remote operations and autonomous systems are shaping the future of well construction.
Seamlessly bridge the gap between drilling and completions
Well construction brings workflows together to seamlessly bridge the gap between drilling and completions. We put the right information in the right hands at the right time so we can deliver a smart drilling program that maximizes accuracy, efficiency, and value—while also minimizing risks.
We develop a digital plan for intelligent drilling execution that enables efficient handoff to a digitally informed completion team for optimal hardware and fluids delivery to prepare the wellbore and the reservoir for production. The integrated preparation and analysis mean that, when challenges arise, contingencies are in place to maintain project progress and continuously improve the process from well to well.
Well construction means integrating activities, processes, people, and technology; monitoring deviations; and providing solutions that allow for dynamic changes to the plan and improving learning for the next time.
Confidently reenter existing wells to add laterals that increase reserves while minimizing investment.
Enhance well stability and protect the casing with cemented and uncemented liner hanger systems that suit a wide range of well conditions.
Deploy long, heavy liners in challenging conditions—including deepwater, extended-reach, and HPHT wells—with expandable, metal-to-metal sealing for the life of the well.
