Intelligent Production Systems Providing Well Monitoring and Selective Production FlowBaker Hughes delivered integrated solution to deepwater GOM well
An operator working a deepwater, high pressure well in the Gulf of Mexico was in search of a solution for a relatively new environment of high-pressure, high-rate production and injection completion systems for the deepwater environment. Having a capacity to process 300,000 bbls/day, flawless operation with no downtime was a driver at every level of the operation.
Some of the chief requirements included talented and skilled personnel with reliable hardware; project management staff in the client’s office to ensure consistently fast communications; and validation programs for the various systems to confirm the ability to withstand the high-flow rates, erosion potential and long term operation.
Baker Hughes provided the Intelligent Production System, including the remote flow control, well monitoring and chemical injection systems. The hydraulically controlled HCM-Plus with High Flow Port design and the Premier Production Packer were specifically designed and validated for this project.
