Effective management of reservoir sweep, with regard to wellbore influx, is an inherent issue affecting horizontal well lengths. As an active, self-regulating technology, autonomous inflow control devices respond to viscosity changes to choke water and gas more effectively, increasing production and sustainability.
The future lies in integrating the drilling, completion and production phases. This life-of-well approach will deliver the next-generation well intelligence needed to reduce the cost of asset ownership, while maximizing profitability.
As E&P operators recover from Covid-19, digital transformation has brought new levels of well analysis not possible before. The latest in subsurface data visualization brings disparate data sets together—from oil price to well characteristics—to give operators ultimate confidence in their recovery plans.
The COVID-19 pandemic will have a profound and lasting impact on oil supply, demand and price for the next 10 years. Two scenarios are presented to help producers understand the challenges associated with fast/slow economic recoveries.
