Deepwater and High Pressure / High Temperature Pay Zones
Our Pay Zone Management solutions are ready to meet the challenge of deepwater and high pressure/high temperature reservoirs and create real value from your pay zone.
Advanced Modeling, Expert Planning
Our Reservoir Development Services team applies industry leading experience and advanced modeling software to help you understand your offshore reservoir and design optimum field development and well placement plans.
Critical shelf and deepwater wells often produce from high pressure/high temperature pay zones and can require massive stimulation treatments to be commercially successful.
With these challenges in mind, our experts work with our customers to design safe and efficient solutions to drill, complete, stimulate, and produce from deepwater wells.
High Pressure / High Temperature Completions
Our deepwater completion systems are the result of unmatched experience and advanced technology.
Our completion systems, including packers, flow control tools, and safety valves, enable operators to access prolific gas reservoirs with hostile pay zone conditions, with pressures exceeding 25,000 psi (1723 bar) and temperatures above 500°F (260°C).
Baker Hughes completion technology resources, including our Center for Technology Innovation and advanced manufacturing capabilities, make us the only company that can provide pay zone management solutions at such high pressures and temperatures.
Sand Control Solutions
Baker Hughes also is a leader in deepwater sand control technology. Our well screens and gravel pack solutions effectively control sand production. And our EQUALIZER systems delay water coning to get the most oil from your pay zone.
Deepwater wells often require high volume gravel pack completions or frac pack stimulation and extremely reliable completion systems. Our SC-XP sand control system operates efficiently while withstanding the extreme conditions of frac pack operations.
Our tubing conveyed perforating services complement gravel packing operations with efficient deployment and deep penetrating, low-debris charges.
Long String Completions
Baker Hughes also has unique capabilities for installing long-string completions in subsea and platform wells, including our new wireless top drive cementing head, liner hanger systems, and our CompDrill™ plugs.
Our state-of-the-art technology vessels provide pumping services for stimulation, gravel packing, and fracturing operations.
Stimulation services use advanced fluids, gels, and proppants in treatments that are custom-designed to get the best results from your pay zone.
Flow Assurance and Well Integrity
Once your deepwater well is producing, chemical treatments address flow assurance issues to deliver hydrocarbons from the pay zone to the surface, reducing your cost and improving your return on investment. Our FATHOM™ subsea products conform to rigorous design criteria to ensure reliability in high-risk production.
Advanced fiber optic sensors also can monitor the compaction of the casing and well screen to assure well integrity and protect the operator’s investment.
Subsea Production Boosting Systems
Our powerful subsea booster systems use proven and reliable electrical submersible pumping systems to lift over 20,000 barrels per day from the seabed to production facilities floating in more than 8,000 ft of water.
Our novel and industry-leading oil-based muds deliver the kind of customizable performance to help you successfully deliver your well, regardless of environment and application.View All Products and Services
