Many industries, particularly safety critical one’s are reluctant to change, preferring instead conventional “time-proven” solutions and the oil industry is no different. It’s often said that “necessity is the mother of invention”, the sustained lower oil price environment is the necessity that the industry has needed to drive it towards innovative technologies. This talk will review two case-studies where innovative technology has been applied successfully to hydraulically fracture a 7-zone, 1,500m horizontal section and to install a single-trip completion in a challenging deep-water environment shortening install time by half.
