As shallower reservoirs are driven to depletion the world over and the world energy demand keeps growing at a steady pace, operators explore for deeper horizons within current fields in hope of making significant discoveries. Deeper exploration in most fields entails significant risk, and a much higher cost per well.
With deeper drilling depths comes tougher drilling challenges, mostly arising from higher pressures and higher temperatures at those depths. High-pressure, h…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
