Oilfield Water Management Project Experience
Halliburton knows that water has been a great obstacle to the development of oil-bearing lands since the beginning of the modern oil era. In fact, one of Erle P. Halliburton's first patents, "Method and Means for Cementing Oil Wells," describes the problem of water during and after drilling and the effective use of cement to close off a well from water.
Water is a challenge in almost every well drilled. Working to address this challenge for almost a century, Halliburton has the experience and technology necessary to address water issues around the globe. A selection of case studies highlighting some of Halliburton's unique technologies and their application to water challenges can be found below.
