Swellable packers reduce well completion costs; Well completion

Abstract

When a major North Sea operator evaluated the potential of using through tubing rotary drilling (TTRD) to sidetrack a 20-year old well in a UKCS field, the design presented the operator with completion challenge. As traditional cementing wasn't practical for zonal isolation there would be difficulties in achieving a reliable cement job along the length of the horizontal section. (Author)
