Interventions in live wells bring several benefits, especially in the offshore environment, that can lead to significant savings and enhance well production. By eliminating kill fluids, there is no formation damage during the work over and no brine losses. Wells can be started immediately after interventions with no need for further stimulation and no high water cut during the flow back period.
Halliburton is the world’s most experienced snubbing company with over 75 years in the business. We are here to support you to plan and execute your live well intervention successfully.
Hydraulic Workover Capabilities
Our HWO equipment is developed based on a thorough understanding of completion procedures and downhole equipment. Our HWO equipment meets the safety standards of government agencies around the world and meets our standard for quality, reliable performance, and safety.
A customer experienced wells plugging with produced solids. These offshore wells had surface pressures of 12000 psi. Extensive engineering produced a solution that enabled all three wells to be safely cleaned out to the target depth.
Halliburton dedicated HWO engineers and SMEs to use proprietary in-house software to calculate all expected loads on the workstring and customize our HWO units and BOP stacks to negate the risks of pipe failures due to buckling, tension and collapse.
