Baker Hughes Integrated Operations Reduced Drilling Time 13% in Onshore Canadian Field

Successful operation saved more than USD 110,000 per well

An operator in a mature onshore Canadian field wanted to optimize well construction while reducing drilling time and costs on a 14-horizontal well pilot program.

Working closely with the operator, Baker Hughes Integrated Operations provided cost-effective, low-risk technologies and services. These included project coordination with drilling services and completion services, drill bits, drilling fluids, CT, frac and fishing services along with shared responsibilities for project management and well engineering.

Work began with the deployment of a project management team that developed, measured, and monitored a set of 21 key performance indicators (KPI). Other related activities included optimization of the supply chain, significantly reducing the number of required vendors.

Execution of the 14-well program, which included 12 multistage fracs, required just 51 days. In all, 65,502 ft (19,965 m) was drilled with 4% average nonproductive time (NPT). Average drilling costs were USD 320,000 per well, which was USD 110,000 lower than previous wells with a related average drilling time reduction of 13%.
