Low-density, lightweight cement tested as alternative to reduce lost circulation, achieve desired top of cement in long horizontal wells 

September/October 2018 Issue of Drilling Contractor

Andy Jordan, Roderick Pernites and Lucas Albrighton

Description: Lightweight cements are demonstrating the resilience needed to withstand the stresses posed by horizontal well operations and achieving long-term well integrity.


Real-time, tunable technology for operating efficiency

September 2018 Issue of World Oil

Dan Fu, Director of Technology

Description: The purpose of tunable technology is efficiency.  For fracturing operations, efficiencies can be gained by reducing NPT, improving completion design, and exploiting more reliable equipment.  One area that can play a significant role is chemistry, particularly friction reducers.

Engineering a new pumping approach

July 2018 Issue of E&P Magazine

Andres Alvarez, Lonnie Lafever and Tony Yeung

Description: BJ Services was presented with a unique opportunity to address changing operating conditions by applying new equipment engineering designs. More specifically, the company took a systemwide approach to engineering with the intent of delivering a new level of reliability and performance for clients.



Engineered friction reducers enhance proppant transport

January 2018 Issue of E&P Magazine

Shafeeq Khan, Linguan Shen and Nicholas Everson

Description: Reducing friction is a long-established challenge that operators must overcome to decrease fluid flow friction and enable high-rate pumping without requiring more pressure generation at the surface.  Recent advances in polymer chemistry have led to the creation of polyacrylamide-based technologies that can provide a greater reduction in pipe friction and enhance proppant transport over conventional slickwater fluids.
