Abstract: Abstract 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…
