IKM Mud Recovery without Riser (MRR)

Our focus is growth!

First well successfully drilled Maersk is the first company to use the new Mud Recovery technology from IKM. The well was a development well in the Gryphon Field on the British sector of the North Sea. The water depth at well location was 112 meters and it was drilled using the semi submersible drilling rig Sedco 704.

By utilizing the MRR System from IKM, Maersk Oil UK have saved money and increased safety. The system worked without down time and to everybody’s satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend this system for other operators. Campbell Syme Drilling Superintendent Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited

The challenge was to drill a deviated 17 ½” section riserless in an area with known hole instability problems. The solution was the Mud Recovery without Riser (MRR) System from IKM. The MRR system gave Maersk the benefit of a closed mud system with full mud return without having to run the BOP and the marine riser for drilling, casing running and cementing. The MRR is a dual gradient top hole drilling system that utilises a subsea pump skid to return drilling fluid and drill cuttings during riserless drilling. The section was drilled to TD without any HSE incidents or MRR related non productive time.

Halliburton “Solving challenges”

Oil, Gas and Shipping Magazine

Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the oil and gas industry. It employs more than 75,000 people, representing 140 nationalities in approximately 80 countries. Today, Halliburton offers the world’s broadest array of products, services and integrated solutions for oil and gas exploration, development and production.


Halliburton’s history dates back almost a century and reveals a continuous focus on innovation and expansion that began with the company’s founder, Erle P. Halliburton. After borrowing a wagon, a team of mules and a pump, he built a wooden mixing box and started an oil well cementing business in Duncan, Oklahoma. In the 1930s, Halliburton established its first research laboratories where the company tested cement mixes, began offering acidizing services to break down the resistance of limestone formations and increase the production of oil and gas, and performed its first offshore cementing job using a barge-mounted cementing unit at a rig in the Creole Field in the Gulf of Mexico. This was the beginning of what was to become the world’s most extensive offshore service. Halliburton took the initial steps toward becoming a worldwide company in 1926, selling five cementing units to an English company in Burma and Erle P. Halliburton sent his brothers to open the business in Alberta, Canada. The company opened in Venezuela in 1940 and by 1946, the company had expanded into Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and the Middle East. It began performing services for the Arabian-American Oil Company, the forerunner of Saudi Aramco. In 1951, Halliburton made its first appearance in Europe as Halliburton Italiana SpA., a wholly owned subsidiary in Italy. In the next seven years, Halliburton launched Halliburton Company Germany GmbH, set up operations in Argentina and established a subsidiary in England. In 1984, Halliburton provided all of the well completion equipment for the first multiwell platform offshore China. Two years later, Halliburton became the first American company to perform an oilfield service job on the China mainland. The final decade of the 20th century brought more changes and growth to Halliburton. The company opened a branch office in Moscow in 1991. The company realigned its work into Eastern and Western Hemisphere operations in 2006, and in 2007, divided its service offerings into two divisions: Completion and Production, and Drilling and Evaluation. Halliburton comprises 13 product service lines (PSLs). The PSLs operate in two divisions: Drilling and Evaluation, and Completion and Production. The Consulting and Project Management PSL works across both divisions.

Halliburton Introduces FracHeightsm Service In April, Pinnacle Technologies, a Halliburton service, announced its latest innovation in fracture diagnostics. FracHeightsm service is a hybrid tool that combines fiber optic wireline conveyed microseismic receivers with Pinnacle’s downhole tiltmeter sensors that directly measure the formation movement associated with fracture dilation. While microseismic monitoring has been the primary diagnostic tool for fracture mapping in unconventional reservoirs, determining fracture height can sometimes be a challenge when relying on these measurements alone. For example, in some multi-stage fractures where shallow microseisms clearly exist, identifying the cause — be it the actual fracture opening, natural fractures, a result of a critically stressed zone shearing, or some other mechanism — requires additional information. By incorporating microdeformation measurements made by downhole tiltmeters, FracHeightsm service provides definitive evidence of fracture dilation. The result is a service that leads to more accurate fracture mapping by providing insight on actual fracture deformation as a function of depth. In typical unconventional reservoirs where multi-stage horizontals are common, the data provided by FracHeightsm service offers significant advantages for understanding fracture behavior. The improved knowledge of the subsurface provided by FracHeightsm service allows for optimized asset development and increased completion and fracture efficiency. Halliburton Introduces Drilling Engineering Solutionssm Service Latterly in March, Halliburton announced the launch of its Drilling Engineering Solutionssm (DES) service. As drilling complexities increase, the need for comprehensive solutions continues to grow. DES answers this need by providing fully integrated, custom-engineered solutions to optimize well design and placement - from high volume wells to complex environments. DES combines expertise and experience across multiple Halliburton product service lines: Sperry Drilling, Baroid and Halliburton Drill Bits and Services, and is powered by Landmark Software. The DrillingXpertTM proprietary solution delivery platform allows DES teams to design an entire performance drilling system on a single platform. The DrillingXpert platform is built on Landmark’s DecisionSpace® Well Engineering software and the Engineer’s Data ModelTM (EDMTM) application, the industry’s most comprehensive well data management solution, to create the most complete wellengineering software tool kit in the industry. The plug-in architecture enables DES teams to provide standard and advanced engineering capabilities aligned with customer needs.

Halliburton Introduces RezConnectTM Well Testing System Also in March, Halliburton announced the release of the RezConnectTM Well Testing System, a complete well testing solution for wireless control of downhole drill stem test tools (DST), measurement and analysis of well-test data in real time. Previously, control of DST tools was done through annulus pressure manipulation. The RezConnect Well Testing System uses Halliburton’s proprietary DynaLink® Telemetry System, a fully wireless downhole sensor and actuator network using acoustic energy in the tubing string. The RezConnect Well Testing System integrates all the DST tools and allows surface verification of their operational status. Additionally, it provides acoustic control of DST tools, actuation of downhole fluid samplers and collects real-time well flow measurement and bottom hole pressure and temperature data for reservoir performance monitoring and analysis. “These capabilities enable immediate and accurate decisions to be made during well testing operations, ensuring operators can more efficiently achieve their intended well test objectives with less rig time compared to conventional testing methods,” said Abdalla Awara, vice president of Halliburton’s Testing and Subsea business line. Recently, the RezConnect Well Testing System was used on a deepwater well in Latin America, the industry’s first fully acoustic telemetry controlled and monitored real-time deepwater DST. During this operation, bi-directional acoustic commands were used across the subsea safety system to operate the downhole test tools and actuate the fluid samplers while providing realtime critical reservoir data and verification of downhole tool functions to surface. By acquiring real-time data acoustically, the duration of well test flow and pressure build-up periods were optimized and the need for acid stimulation confirmed. This allowed for improved well productivity and the ability to evaluate post- stimulation well performance. The enhanced flexibility 13 and control provided by the RezConnect Well Testing System resulted in rig time savings of five days.

Introduces SHADOW Series Frac Plug

Frac Plug Eliminates Post-Frac Intervention and Accelerates ROI Baker Hughes has announced the commercial release of its SHADOW™ series frac plug, a permanent, large-bore, flow-through frac plug designed to be left downhole after fracturing operations are complete. SHADOW plugs are a more efficient alternative to traditional composite plugs because they eliminate coiled tubing operations from the critical well path and enable reduced costs and lower HSE risks.

SHADOW plugs feature a large flow-through inside diameter (ID) and use IN-Tallic™ disintegrating frac balls, allowing production flow—with the plugs in place—as soon as fracturing operations are complete. The IN-Tallic™ frac balls, which are made with a controlled electrolytic metallic (CEM) nanostructured material, hold pressure during fracturing and disintegrate in the well when exposed to produced fluids, leaving a large ID to enable maximum production. The initial reservoir entry point is created using our 38 Alpha™ sleeve pressure-actuated valve, rather than a perforating gun run in on coiled tubing.


Oil, Gas and Shipping Magazine

The SHADOW plug was field tested on two of seven wells in the Horn River Basin while the other five wells were completed using conventional composite plugs. The wells with the SHADOW frac plugs produced at the same volume as the wells using the composite plugs. However, because the drillout phase was eliminated, the time on well was reduced by approximately two days for a cost savings of $150,000 per well.

Oil, Gas and Shipping Magazine

Because the plugs stay in the well, they can be set beyond the reach of coiled tubing-conveyed milling tools, allowing operators to fracture longer lateral sections and maximize reservoir access. The plugs are also ideal for developments in remote locations where it may be difficult to procure intervention equipment.



A NEW GIANT The new F480: the right choice wherever filter performance is a question of time, water volume, and cost. With volume flow up to 45,000 m³/h and diameters up to 2,000 mm, it treats fluids (e.g., salt water) for a great variety of processes. As a result, it protects facilities to an extensive degree from dirt and debris – and at the same time specifically minimizes operational and maintenance costs. In addition, the F480 requires extremely little space – to save time, money, and energy. It therefore represents a small wonder – and it’s no wonder that many and various industries have already learned to place great trust in it.
