Testing and Completing, 3rd ed., Revised
Well completion methods vary a great deal because not only are no two wells exactly alike, but also no two producing companies handle a well the same way. It is impossible to talk about the typical well completion because it does not exist. No matter who plans the completion, reservoir conditions primarily, along with efficiency and foresight, decide the well’s success or failure.
This training manual introduces rig crewmembers to well test procedures and to various completion methods operators use to finalize a well. Topics include reservoir characteristics, formation evaluation, formation testing, completion design, completion tools, and perforating. Readable language, clearly labeled illustrations and photographs, a glossary, and helpful self-test review questions help the reader understand the material.
