Maximize heavy oil asset value through the project life cycle with a fully integrated selection of tools and services. We’re applying this integrated approach on heavy and ultraheavy oil/bitumen projects in Canada, South America, Europe, and Africa. We’ll work with you to convert heavy oil to usable hydrocarbon resources.
Baker Hughes Reservoir Development Services has performed dozens of field studies and reservoir simulations to choose recovery methods, optimize well spacing and injector configuration, plan water flood design, and analyze flow patterns. With our geomechanics expertise, we’ll determine wellbore stability issues while recommending sand management strategy. We can also predict the impact of the overburden on steam containment. Our professionals develop a thermal strategy that maximizes oil flow.
Improved well planning
Our drilling engineers are highly skilled at the correct placement of horizontals to maximize well exposure to the oil asset. With our evaluation tools, we gather important data—such as viscosity measurements—that allow us to further optimize well planning to improve production. Our Intelligent Well Systems are designed and built to optimize reservoir stimulation and quickly move to production.
Our progressing cavity pumps have been proven in some of the most hostile environments in the heavy oil industry.
Oil and water separation technologies remove oil from produced water.
