Baker Oil Tools has successfully installed an optimized natural gas lift intelligent well completion system in the Zuluf field offshore Saudi Arabia. The system combines Baker’s Equalizer openhole completion with a cased-hole intelligent completion system. This controls gas injection into production tubing to enhance heavy oil lift.
The high end completion includes ‘HCM-A’ remote controlled hydraulically actuated sliding sleeve valves facing the gas zone. These are hydraulically actuated to control lift gas injection. The completion provides isolation, mitigation and control of water/gas production, enhanced oil production and recovery with minimized well intervention.
