Oil Drilling – Oil & Gas Animations

This video shows how geologists and geophysicists try to find a potential field and then, must drill to hit them. The best position for the installation of the drilling equipment is determined is generally vertically above the point of maximum thickness of the geological layer suspected of containing hydrocarbons. The drillers then make a hole in conditions that are sometimes difficult.

Well Completion – Weatherford

This video shows one of the technique of plug-and-perf completions. They  are extremely flexible multistage well completion techniques for cased hole wells. Each stage can be perforated and treated optimally because options can be exercised up to the moment the perforating gun is fired.

The process consists of pumping a plug and perforating guns to a given depth. The plug is set, the zone perforated, and the tools removed from the well. A ball is pumped down to isolate the zones below the plug and the fracture stimulation treatment is pumped in. The ball-activated plug diverts fracture fluids through the perforations into the formation. After the stage is completed, the next plug and set of perforations are initiated, and the process is repeated moving further up the well.

Production Gas Lift – Weatherford

A video introducing gas-lift theory and technology used in artificial lift. It is illustrated the artificial-lift method in which gas is injected into the production tubing to reduce the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid column. The resulting reduction in bottom-hole pressure allows the reservoir liquids to enter the wellbore at a higher flow rate

Oil & Gas Recovery – Reef Oil and Gas

This video shows the secondary and tertiary oil recovery process. Secondary recovery techniques extend a field’s productive life generally by injecting water or gas to displace oil and drive it to a production wellbore, resulting in the recovery of 20 to 40 percent of the original oil in place.

Oil companies use enhanced oil recovery (EOR), techniques that offer prospects for ultimately producing 30 to 60 percent, or more, of the reservoir’s original oil in place.
