Well interventions are done primarily to maintain or increase production, extend the life of the wells or resolve significant issues in the well. The Halliburton Project Management team delivers integrated well intervention projects and customized technical solutions to our customers for all potential interventions in the life of the well – from the moment the wells are first brought into production to the end of the well life and abandonment. This is done by providing a single point of contact for our customers, collaborative solutions, and management of the overall project using defined processes and technologies to deliver cost effective and quality intervention projects on land, offshore platforms, or subsea from desert to arctic conditions.
The diversity of the type of wells, type of completion, and production history create many types of interventions. There are 4 core service areas for interventions that are managed and have been successfully delivered by Halliburton Project Management.
Refers to all types of well interventions with regard to maintaining or improving the well productivity. These are typically light interventions or Rigless using Slickline, Wireline, or Coil Tubing. Halliburton Project Management integrates all Halliburton service lines to create a single solution. We address all our customers’ challenges to put wells back in production or improve overall production. Halliburton services such as Wireline, Slickline, and Coil Tubing use industry leading technologies for diagnosing and resolving problems met in the well. Halliburton Project Management integrates these various technologies, capabilities, and experts in engineering and consulting to create a customized workflow for problem identification and solution generation. From well integrity to flow assurance, Project Management will deliver the right solution based on customer needs.
Refers to medium and heavier interventions with significant involvement in the wells completion using either a Hydraulic Workover Unit (HWO), Workover rig, or even a Drilling rig. These types of interventions include pulling the well completion and replacing or recompleting to a different area or a different scope or abandonment. Halliburton Project Management has extensive experience managing complex projects involving other Halliburton service lines, rigs, and 3rd party suppliers. Halliburton Project Management has expertise in successfully managing and delivering workover projects from early diagnosis to engineering the solutions to delivering the projects.
Refers to heavy interventions typically in the late life of the well. Re-entry is a specific type of workover which involves a workover rig, drilling rig, Hydraulic Workover (HWO) rig, drilling string, or Coil Tubing. The scope of these types of interventions is to reallocate to a different production zone and includes either pulling the completion or directional drilling through the current well completion into an additional or a different reservoir. Halliburton Project Management uses its expertise in both drilling and well intervention to create an integrated solution and lead the execution of the project. This includes integration of Halliburton service lines, rigs, engineering, third-party suppliers, and operations to deliver projects. Re-Entry solutions offered by Halliburton Project Management use not only our Workover capability and drilling expertise, but also use our engineering and consulting capabilities combined with industry leading technologies to support Drilling fluids, Drill bits, Directions Drilling, and Coil tubing drilling. Either done through tubing or through casing, our re-entry solutions to produce successful results giving wells with ability to flow and produce from different or additional reservoirs.
Plug and Abandonment
Refers to interventions in the last stage of the life of the well. The scope includes well de-completion and reservoir isolation to ensure no communication from the reservoir to other zones or to surface. Typically, these are complex operations involving multiple Halliburton service lines. Halliburton Project Management's expertise in understanding well challenges, regulatory demands, and technologies allows seamless integration in creating customized solutions to deliver successful plug and abandonment projects.
