Swell Packer Performance in the Waloons Coal Measures
April 22 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am AESTAUD15
CSG wells in the Waloon Coal Measures (Surat Basin) have undergone an evolution of completion design changes as a means of mitigating the impact of solids from inter-burden. One such technology has been the Swell Packer completion which attempts to utilise swellable packers placed behind the production casing to improve the inter-burden isolation. This placement is intended to create a physical barrier and ultimately prevent the flow back of inter-burden into the wellbore, with the ultimate aim of improving the MTTF of whichever artificial lift system is being utilised. With widespread execution of this completion type across different assets in the Surat Basin, both operators and service companies have been on a journey to extend MTTF and increase their bottom lines. This technical discussion morning will aims to focus in on swell packer history, current status and future opportunities.
