Technology tackles low-permeability sand in South Texas. T.E. Swift. OGJ, 29 September 1997, 95(39), 68, 70--72.
By the aggressive application of advanced technology, natural gas and oil production has been increased by more than fivefold in less than 21/2 years. Substantial reduction per unit development and production costs were also experienced. Hydraulic fracturing, remote fracture monitoring, velocity str...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Shallow water flow---a technology update. G.H. Medley. Pipeline Gas Ind., Deepwater Technol. Supplement, August 1998, 81(8), 37--47. (6 pages).
Problems of shallow water flow (SWF) are described in deepwater drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Technology for dealing with SWF is reviewed. Special cements, cement additives, and cement placement techniques are recommended for shutting off SWF in deepwater drilling applications. Unconven...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Slag mix mud conversion cementing technology---reduction of mud disposal volumes and management of rig-site drilling wastes. J.J. Nahm et al. J. Petrol. Sci. Engng., April 1994, 11(1), 3--12.
A new method of mud to cement conversion technology utilizing slag as the hydraulic material has been developed and the technical merits of this slag mix are reviewed briefly. The major environmental benefit being the reduction of mud disposal volume. Since application of slag mix at Prospect Auger ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
ExxonMobil has licensed a patented LNG storage tank technology to UK-based Skanska Whessoe. Claimed to offer ‘the potential for significant cost savings and faster construction times for LNG import and export terminals’, the technology employs modern shipyard fabrication practices and a scalable, mo...Availability: OnlineRecord type: News Item
Decommissioning technology challenges. Anon. JPT, April 1999, 15(4), 56, 57. (Synopsis OTC paper 8785).
Attention is drawn to these challenges which the industry faces going into the next millennium. Regulation, various options, and technological challenges involving removal of steel platforms, removal of concrete gravity-based structures, and disposal issues and considerations. Consideration is also ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract

Use of concrete technology to improve performance of lightweight cements. Anon. JPT, August 1998, 50(8), 74, 75. (Synopsis SPE paper 39276).
Details are given of a new engineering approach to designing lightweight concrete slurries that allows the physical properties of a set cement to be decoupled from the slurry density. Granulometric optimization of a lightweight dry blend based on packing principles used in the concrete industry perm...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
The potential downsides od cemented monobore completions, such as remedial cementing and the possibility of failing to get the string to total depth due to hole problems, have previously stopped companies from using this technology.Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Improved primary cement jobs with a unique spacer design. Anon. JPT, August 1997, 49(8), 842, 843. (Synopsis SPE paper 36486).
Good cement design is discussed and the development by Arco of effective wellbore-cleanout technology that combines an effective displacement technique with differential spacers is reported. Spacer design is examined and the Arco SL spacer is described. It typically comprises a base aqueous fluid, a...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Reciprocating cement slurries after placement. Anon. JPT, August 1997, 49(8), 846--848. (Synopsis SPE paper 37619).
A simple, inexpensive technology is reported that vibrates cement slurries after placement. It keeps the slurry in a fluid state to maintain the hydrostatic pressure and prevent gas migration. It also improves the bond between the cement and casing and eliminates the micro-annulus to reduce and prev...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
