Production Testing / Flowback
Tests on oil and gas wells may be performed at various stages of drilling, completion, and production for a variety of different purposes. It is important to understand completely the reasons for each of these tests, and know what the necessary equipment to carry them out is.
Reservoir analysis has to be complete and accurate. Reform guarantees production testing that will lead the direction of maximized return on drilling investments, all while safely detailing the well fluid and gas monitoring.
In Underbalanced Drilling operations, the pressure of the drilling fluid in the annulus (hydrostatic head of the fluid, whether being circulated or at rest) is intentionally engineered to be less than the formation pore fluid pressure, in the openhole section of the well. As a consequence, formation fluids flow, freely, into the well when a permeable formation is penetrated.
The technology's application results in a problem: wells flow during the drilling process. The development of surface control equipment to handle this while-drilling flow quickly brought on the modern age of Underbalanced Drilling.
Reform Energy Service's UBD units are designed based on years of experience, which will save time and money while enhancing safety.
Managed Pressure Drilling
As originally conceived, UBD included techniques that were fully underbalanced, as well as methods called “low-head” and “at-balance” drilling, in which the bottomhole pressure was kept marginally above or approximately equal to the reservoir pressure. These techniques later became designated by the term MPD, term adopted by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), and MPD became a separate designation from UBD.
The objectives of MPD techniques are to ascertain the downhole pressure-environment limits and to manage the annular-pressure profile accordingly. This is achieved by manipulating the annular pressure profile by increasing or decreasing back pressure at surface.
At Reform Energy Services we operate first class equipment, specially designed to fulfill our customer's needs.
