Full Description

Description

This afternoon course will take an operational perspective on the state of light intervention technology and how it is changing the way some operators are designing their wells — to be more intervention friendly. The downhole tractor and associated technologies, such as milling, cleaning and hydraulic stroking, have come of age and are being applied in the full range of well deviations, including vertical and inverted wells. Learn how this emerging technology helps with reduce cost, less HSE risk and improved recoveries by enabling more frequent and cost effective interventions.

Why You Should Attend

Tractor associated technologies have come of age in the last 15 years and are being applied in all ranges of deviation, including vertical and inverted wells. Learn how this emerging technology helps in reduced cost, less HSE risk, and improved reservoir recovery.
