THE WOODLANDS, Texas - Field testing is opening the way for coiled tubing in directional wells drilled in the San Juan Basin of Colorado and New Mexico, USA.

Speaking here at the Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association's (ICoTA) 2007 Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention conference and exhibition, Tony Pink, Drilling Engineering Manager with Schlumberger, described how the San Juan Coiled Tubing Project was launched by BP America to evaluate directional drilling systems used in coiled tubing applications.

PERTH, Australia ?Making good reservoir predictions is a crucial endeavor for petroleum geologists, as evidenced by numerous presentations given here at the AAPG International Conference and Exhibition.

Geological interpretations of outcrops, wells, or other data types depend heavily on the skill of the interpreter, and typically are strengthened by the interpreter抯 experience. The oil and gas industry is hiring new geological interpreters at breakneck speed, and often these interpreters collaborate on large projects, so consistency of interpretive approach is desirable.

Web Delivers Timely Petrotechnical Reference Data

LONG BEACH, California – The drilling, logging and other oilfield equipment of today bears a resemblance to its earliest predecessors. But the volume of data acquired when drilling a well has grown substantially over the years. This volume might leave scientists and engineers wondering what data they have acquired unless they have a photographic memory: the number of well-log curves and parameters exceeds 50,000 and grows by approximately 1,000 curves yearly.

A real-time delivery mechanism improves the acquisition, processing and interpretation workflows by supplying log-curve descriptions and other information via the Web.

DOGGR: Drilling Through Time
Last updated by admin on 03/24/2007 11:37 PM (Read: 36867 times)

Before Europeans discovered California, Native Americans had discovered uses for petroleum. Asphaltum from oil seeps helped keep arrowheads on their shafts and made baskets watertight.

The Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources -- originally known as the Department of Petroleum and Gas -- never regulated the making of arrows or baskets. Its work began in 1915, at a time when the oil and gas industry was a booming free-for-all in need of a referee. Through the 20th Century and into today, DOGGR has helped the oil, gas and geothermal (a relative newcomer) industries maintain productivity while becoming more efficient, diversified and environmentally conscious.

Fullbore Formation MicroImager
Last updated by Schlumberger on 09/30/2006 01:57 PM (Read: 37241 times)

Borehole geology, geomechanics and 3D reservoir modeling

Determine net pay
The FMI Fullbore Formation MicroImager gives you microresistivity formation images in water-base mud. This is the preferred approach for determining net pay in laminated sediments of fluvial and turbidite depositional environments.

Visualize sedimentary features
These features define important reservoir geometries and petrophysical reservoir parameters. The interpretation of image-derived sedimentary dip data lets you understand sedimentary structures.

Interpret seismic sections
Well-to-well correlation is difficult in deviated wells with sections of steep and varying structural dip. Greatly improve structural interpretation of seismic sections with high-quality bedding dips to compute accurate logs of true stratigraphic thickness.

Get more data
Geological information from FMI borehole images helps with stochastic modeling of the sand-shale distribution. FMI images define channel heights superbly in amalgamated units. Other variables, such as the channel width and channel sinuosity, can be estimated using geological analogs, based on detailed sedimentological analysis of FMI image data.

Improve well construction plans
Borehole images improve your mechanical earth models which, in turn, help you optimize well plans. Better understanding of borehole stability can save you millions of dollars during field development.

Better Turns for Rotary Steerable Drilling
Last updated by lai_wmn on 08/20/2006 02:03 PM (Read: 35539 times)

Farther, faster, cheaper, safer. These words describe the drilling results of the newest rotary steerable systems. Substantial advances in the reliability and steerability of rotary steerable drilling systems allow engineers to plan and drill complicated well trajectories in extremely demanding environments. Better still, oil and gas companies save rig time while doing so.

Stratigraphic Column
Last updated by admin on 07/27/2006 08:59 AM (Read: 38309 times)

A stratigraphic column is a drawing done by a geologist that describes what rocks in a cliff wall or underground look like. This allows other geologists, who have never seen these rocks in person, to understand the geology of that area, and perhaps even decide whether or not there is the potential for oil or natural gas to exist in these rocks.

DOE-backed Consortium Delivers 6 New 'Stripper Well' Te
Last updated by admin on 06/27/2006 03:04 PM (Read: 36104 times)

Joint ventures in technology development by government and industry delivered six new deployment-ready applications in four years to extend the useful life of more than 650,000 stripper wells that deliver almost 15% of America's domestic oil production and almost 8% of natural gas production, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

What is the Role of Technology in Oil & Gas Production?
Last updated by admin on 06/22/2006 07:37 AM (Read: 43667 times)

When many people think of the oil and natural gas industry, they think of an old, dirty, staid industry using technology from decades ago. The images they see on television or in the movies show oil gushing madly out of wellbore or a mechanical drilling rig with three men in dirty clothes throwing a chain around drill pipe. Most people do not realize how out-dated these images are. Oil and gas is a very technology-oriented industry; many techniques developed by the industry are now used in other industries, including the space program. Technological innovations have made it possible for the oil and gas industry to supply the fuels that power the world economy.

Antrim Shale
Last updated by admin on 06/07/2006 01:51 PM (Read: 38526 times)

The Devonian aged Antrim Shale is an important gas zone in the Michigan Basin. The gas production is derived from organically rich, fractured black shales within the Antrim formation. The Lachine and the Norwood are the principle gas bearing zones. On a per well basis, these two zones collectively average 110 feet in thickness.
