Horizontals, Multi-zone, Openhole Packers, Barefoot, ICDs, ICVs, Frac Valves, Plug and Perf, Unconventional – Why are there so many lower completion types? There is a better way – all lower completions could be redesigned as a two-trip and intervention capable system. Such systems could provide higher value and flexibility for unforeseen circumstances enabling future remediation. Scope changes could be made using OPEX adjustments rather than CAPEX investments. Sensor and actuator reliability would increase as they become replaceable. Such a system could have permanent compartment packers and tubulars, but the flow control and flow sensing elements would be replaceable, upgradeable, and reconfigurable, optimizing the completion for the life of the well. The industry should create a single completions type that can be reconfigured “on demand” into all the types we presently use. The net result would be a hassle free, “Dream Well.”
