Abstract:In brownfield developments, prolonging the production life of the wells beyond the 30-year original well design life has been one of the challenges in managing well integrity. This challenge is often compromised by multiple tubing leaks or, in the worst case, by parted tubing caused by metal fatigue, erosion, and corrosion. The issue is often observed in many wells in the S field and usually occurs at a shallow depth between the tubing hanger and subsurface safety valve. The conventional through-tubing repair … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
