Halliburton has developed several technologies to help reduce unwanted fluid production, enhance recovery efficiency, and satisfy a broad range of reservoir management and environmental objectives. Although water management may not result in increased production, the application of the technologies can often improve an operator’s profitability by helping achieve a longer productive well life, reduced lifting costs, and reduced environmental concerns and costs.
Halliburton conformance solutions have proved effective in vertical, highly deviated, and horizontal wellbores, including challenging completions such as gravel packs, slotted liners, and openhole completions.
In addition to the wide variety of chemical solutions that Halliburton offers, the QuikLook® conformance simulation service was developed to optimize the design and placement of unwanted fluid shutoff treatments. By simulating the flow of oil, gas, water, conformance fluids, and heat through a porous medium in 3D, the simulator provides diagnostics, design, and evaluation capabilities to help optimize this type of treatment.
