Video Case Study: Vår Energi Avoids Constructing Two New Subsea Wells
Retrofitting two wells as multilaterals avoided adding infrastructure, reducing our customer’s GHG emissions.
With retrofit multilaterals using ༺RapidX TAML 5 high-strength, hydraulic sealed multilateral junction or 💯RapidXtreme TAML 3, 4, or 5 large-bore multilateral junction🐼, operators can select optimally positioned candidate wells to intersect accretive resource targets, with lateral initiation from intermediate or production casing―greatly reducing infill drilling and completion complexity and maintaining the production from the existing main bore.
Laterals can be planned as part of a greenfield development strategy from the outset to reduce total well count or to overcome the challenges of developing 🎃a complex field with horizontal extended-reach multilateral wellsꦆ. They can also be added later during reentry as retrofit multilaterals to maintain production from the original well while targeting a nearby reservoir resource or to target and produce from accretive reserves while reducing surface or subsea infrastructure cost, lead time, and complexity.
Whether you're developing a reservoir on land or offshore, SLB has the technology you need to optimize your field development costs. Onshore, for example, surface constraints for conventional or unconventional fields can be eliminated. Offshore, on fixed or floating platforms with dry trees, slot limitations and near-platform collision avoidance challenges are reduced or eliminated because you can select the optimal well—whether producing or not—for interception of the primary reservoir target to produce. ꧂This value is also seen for offshore subsea developments, in addition to the elimination of procuring and installing the associated subsea infrastructure.
