Video Production Enhancement—A New Mindset
Schlumberger and EnQuest discuss production enhancement of a 5-well campaign in a North Sea oilfield.
Revive oil and gas production after normal or unusual declines
Production decline is a normal part of reservoir flow, but when the decline doesn't match realistic simulations and expectations, you can choose from technologies that help you improve or restore well productivity. A holistic approach may be required to get to the root cause of your production declines—or you may find an easy diagnosis with a simple fluid analysis.
It's possible to manage production declines—even in unconventional wells known for a steep drop in production—and revive flagging wells with new remediation technologies. The first step, however, is to understand the mechanism behind your declines. For example, if you're considering a refracturing program, you can maximize efficiency by first studying where the original completion fell short.
Similarly, transitioning your artificial lift strategy may be an option to manage lower oil rates, but if the rates are low because you're producing with slug flow, you might have better results with technology that can help you manage gas and solids production.
