SPE Live Tech Talks: CTDirect Solution in Challenging UBCTD Projects

Declining production in mature fields is a challenge faced by most operators. If the wells are already completed previously, pulling out those completions is an arduous task involving the loss of both time and production. Protecting the formation from the drilling fluid overburden is another challenge. An underbalanced coiled tubing drilling (UBCTD) system makes it possible to avoid both these conundrums while also making it possible to boost production by maximizing reservoir contact. Schlumberger’s proprietary CTDirect solution helps customer exceed their objectives in challenging UBCTD projects by improving drilling performance, BHA life and operational efficiency.
