Well Construction for High Pressure High Temperature (HP/HT)
Halliburton HP/HT engineers designed our portfolio of well construction products to withstand heat, pressure and cyclical loading over the life of the well while providing maximum drainage for the reservoir. Our drilling fluids were developed to withstand temperatures up to 550°F/288°C with density values of up to 20 ppg without the use of weighting agents—thus minimizing the possibility of particle invasion.
Operators can also reduce non productive time while delivering precise wellbore placement via Halliburton’s directional drilling tools. Using our Geo-Pilot® XL rotary steerable system that’s engineered to withstand temperatures up to 374°F/190°C and pressures up to 30,000 psi/207 MPa, these tools help clients achieve better hole quality and stay on target. For higher temperatures, Halliburton can provide turbines built to withstand temperatures up to 572°F/300°C. Our cementing system, which has been consistently ranked #1 in value by independent surveys of oil and gas customers, was designed for high temperature wells in mind and has been tested and proven at temperatures as high as 750°F/399°C.
Invert emulsion drilling fluids offer the highest levels of drilling performance. These fluid systems are designed to operate in a variety of situations and challenging well types while giving the operator significant flexibility.
