Baker Oil Tools I-Well for Saudi Aramco

Zuluf field gets ‘Equalizer’ optimized natural gas lift intelligent well completion system.

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.
