Like all human endeavours, upstream E&P operators, generally turn to technology to solve new and chronic problems. However, are technology providers reaching the mark? Here, Honeywell's John Colpo, Strategy Leader for Oil and Gas Industry, argues that technology providers need to consolidate further...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Introduction of game-changing drilling technology. Anon. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 28, 33. (Synopsis SPE paper 37635).
Details are given of the way Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) introduces drilling technology by use of a structured process, from planning, through trials, to implementation. Examples are presented related to multilateral wells and horizontal, coiled-tubing, underbalanced, and percussion drilling. P...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Fracture-stimulation technology for gas-storage wells. S.R. Reeves. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 61--67 (5 pages).
Attention is drawn to the joint programme being sponsored by the DOE (and more recently the GRI) with industry to demonstrate application of new and novel-fracture-stimulation technologies in gas-storage fields across the US. The objective of which, being to advance deliverability-enhanced technolog...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract

Current safety and rescue operations are covered, and each system and technology are described, procedures, techniques, and equipment available being investigated. These comprise light systems and technologies, radio systems, and radar systems, details being included of the relevant sea trials. Also...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
With reference to onshore drilling in mature fields, horizontal drilling, wellbore re-entry, and CT drilling are the three developing technologies that promise great benefits. Horizontal drilling technology---sometimes achieving 8000 to 9000-ft extensions with dual laterals thus reducing drilling co...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Combining technologies improves production and reserves in a mature oilfield. Anon. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 86, 87, 88. (Synopsis SPE paper 38789).
Details are given of a process where the two different proven technologies, gel treatments and foamed-acid fracturing, have been used in combination with propellant technology in the same wellbore to further develop the remaining upper Embar oil target formation in the Oregan Basin field, Wyoming. T...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Multiphase technology---technology from the Arctic to the tropics. J.P. Brill and G.A. Gregory (Editors). Proc. 1st North American Conf., 10--11 June 1998, Banff, Canada, BHR Group Conf. Series, Publication No. 31, publ'd Prof. Engng. Publishing Ltd., Nort
The 25 papers which comprise this published proceedings cover some seven aspects of this technology. Field measurements, separation, boosting and metering, nasties, horizontal wells and pipes, slugs and modelling. Numerous references apend each paper and the proceedings provides a most useful source...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Multilateral technology. Part 1. Multilateral technologies increase operational efficiencies in Middle East. R.W. Taylor and R. Russell. OGJ, 16 March 1998, 96(11), 76--80.
Despite the inherent risks and costs, the development of multilateral drilling technologies in the Middle East has resulted in increased production rates, advanced well configurations, and an improved understanding of operational techniques. Middle East drillers are now able to competently drill and...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
The Industry’s Technology Facilitator (ITF) has issued a global call for proposals to tackle technology issues associated with tight gas, shale gas and coal bed methane, as well as the challenges of enhanced oil recovery. This call is an open invitation to any organisation seeking sponsorship for in...Availability: OnlineRecord type: News Item
