Petronas completes construction of world's first Triple Well

Oct 28, 1999 02:00 AM

Petronas says its exploration and production arm, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, has completed the construction of the world's first Triple Well in the Bokor field, offshore Sarawak. The application of the innovative Triple Well technology at the Bokor-C drilling platform allowed three independent wells with six production strings to be drilled through one shared conductor, the national oil corporation said.
The method, it added, reduced the number of conductors that had to be installed, which in turn would result in a significant reduction in the cost of the project.
The completion of the Triple Well followed the successful implementation of Petronas Carigali's Twin Well technology in its Tukau and Baram fields, also offshore Sarawak, in 1998. Petronas said the Triple Well system was another technological achievement for Petronas Carigali in its continuous efforts to get more oil at lower costs and to find more ways to add value to its assets.
Petronas said Petronas Carigali planned to merge the Triple Well system with its other achievements in intelligent completion technologies for future field development projects. This would result in improved project profitability and make future development of smaller fields attractive as the new technology would reduce the number of wells and size of platforms required to produce oil, it said.
