Shale reservoirs can be complex and present many challenges, including: identifying, mapping and staying within sweet spots, determining well locations and spacing, optimizing drilling, enhancing completion and stimulation strategies, identifying operational efficiencies, and at the same time respecting environmental sensitivities and regulatory issues. And unconventional plays are unique. What works well in one play may not translate well to another.
Careful selection of technology and services is essential for long-term success, confident decisions, and improving operational efficiency. Continuously refining techniques drives improved economics. Schlumberger has provided expert technology and services in every active shale play world-wide.
Taking advantage of the extent of Schlumberger services and products helps to improve operational efficiencies from evaluation to drilling and completions, through to production management. We help to ensure that you produce more with less at every opportunity.
More knowledge, less uncertainty
Proper evaluation of reservoir quality and completion quality are both essential. Selective acquisition and analysis of data leads to less uncertainty and more informed decisions.
More pay zone, less rig time
Drill higher quality, longer laterals, faster, and with greater accuracy. Place wells in the most productive zones for greater economic success. Optimize every aspect of your drilling program.
More reservoir contact, less environmental impact
Identify the most effective completion strategy to maximize reservoir contact and reduce environmental impact.
More recovery, less footprint
Address water management challenges from provisioning and recycling to treatment and disposal. Diagnose problems and optimize the lifetime production of your wells - maximizing ultimate recovery with fewer wells and fewer interventions.
