The Nigerian subsidiary of an international oil company wanted to pilot test intelligent completion technology in one of the largest fields in the western swamp area. However, the
remoteness and the peculiar operating environment in the Niger Delta made installation of surface equipment required to operate/communicate with the downhole intelligent
completion equipment a challenge.
