Directional/complex wells

This paper presents the mitigation of drilling challenges encountered in the Niger Delta through a technique that relates shale resistivity to shale porosity and vertical effective stress to predict pore pressure.
This work provides a new modeling tool, validated against a static-wellbore solver and field data, to estimate and manage downhole temperature in higher-temperature oil, gas, and geothermal wells.
The Research Council of Norway’s $118,000 grant will support development of longer fishbone laterals to raise production while lowering carbon footprints.
