It’s Good to Talk: Downhole Communications in Well Operations | Euan MurdochApr 1, 2022
The oil industry is notoriously conservative when it comes to adopting new technology. One of the positives of the post $100+ BBL world is that innovation has been stimulated by a requirement to survive. Remotely-activated downhole tools and real-time data have existed in drilling and well-test environments, but their adoption into the completions world has been slow. Now their adoption is starting to be driven by key operators who see their value to operations and production.
Distinguished Lecturer Euan Murdoch will explain the function and performance of these technologies and the roles they can fulfill. He will present a number of case studies from across different areas of the industry to demonstrate how their adoption can bring new real-time data to traditional operations and allow that data to be acted on to greatly cut operational costs and risk. Also how using remotely activated tools facilitates the devolvement of entirely new methods of well construction, installation, start-up, and production possibilities.
This presentation is from the Distinguished Lecturer 2021-22 season.
