Modern Completion Technology for Oil and Gas Wells

by: Ding Zhu, Ph.D., Kenji Furui, Ph.D.


Abstract: The latest oil and gas well completion technologies and best practices. Increase oil and gas production and maximize revenue generation using the start-to-finish completion procedures contained in this hands-on guide. Written by a pair of energy production experts, Modern Completion Technology for Oil and Gas Wells introduces each technique, shows how it works, and teaches how to deploy it effectively. You will get full explanations of the goals of completion along with detailed examples and case studies that clearly demonstrate how to successfully meet those goals. Modern production methods such as hydraulic fracturing, acid stimulation, and intelligent well completions are thoroughly covered. Coverage includes: • Functions and goals of oil and gas well completion • Well completion fundamentals • Completion impact in near-wellbore region on inflow performance • Completions for fracturing • Completions for acid stimulation • Intelligent well completion: downhole monitoring and flow control • Completion designs for production and injection optimization
