2022 Technical Program


Deepwater Well Construction Challenges and Technology Solutions

Thursday, 5 May
Technical / Poster Session
Well construction is an expensive and complex process, and the deepwater environment imposes multiple constraints and challenges on the entire operation, leading to serious risks, lack of efficiency, and excessive well costs. This session explores the challenges and solutions associated with the deepwater well construction operation, including cementing challenges and solutions, intelligent completions, fiber optics sensing, multilateral entry technology, and mono-diameter expandable liner systems, and surface casing handling and installation.
