Future of Intelligent Completions – Case Study From GOM

Recorded On: 01/26/2023

In this webinar, we focus on the role of sliding sleeves in reservoir management and production optimization. We take a closer look at smart completions and demonstrate its application using a case study from deep waters in Gulf of Mexico showcasing benefits gained by the technology by providing flexibility to adapt to challenges faced during the life of a well.

This webinar is categorized under the Completions technical discipline.
