Five ways to improve onshore/ offshore planning and operations – Brief Article

Recent technology advances described here offer operators several ways to improve field operations, from the planning of a deepwater pipeline, to improved drilling techniques, to solving a persistent offshore production problem. And reports of an industry survey shows what technical help independent operators are seeking.

The five presentations covering this range of technology offerings include: 1) a new, field-tested technique to control the problem of sustained high pressure on the inside casing annuli of offshore Gulf of Mexico wells; 2) use of openhole whipstocks to expedite drilling around stuck fish; 3) review of 3-D images made during a hazards survey for a 26-mi pipeline installation in 2,700-ft water; 4) an overview of the Sidwaste drilling waste treating system being developed as a THERMIE project; and 5) a report by PTTC and Concurrent Technologies on a survey of independent operators to identify industry technology needs.
