Intelligent Well System Completion Improved Selective Zone Production

Baker Hughes Saved Installation Time and Reduced Operating Costs

In 2006, in an ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico project in excess of 8,000 ft (2438 m) with a potential for strong loop currents, an operator needed to monitor and remotely control the individual zones in the high-rate gas wells to reduce high intervention operating costs and associated risk.

The operator chose Baker Hughes and its two-zone InForce intelligent well system with 4½-in. HCM-Plus (shrouded and non-shrouded) hydraulic sliding sleeves, splice sub, 97/8-in. x 4½-in. Premier packer with six feed-through ports and debris barrier, and the Neptune safety valve.
