Cup-seal packer enhances sand control in open-hole wells

In the high-stakes deepwater market, innovations that allow operators to move beyond conventional completion systems to deliver wells economically and reliably with long-term performance are essential. Increasingly, open-hole completions, rather than cased-hole designs that require the reservoir to be produced through perforations, are the preferred method in this expensive and risky arena. Open-hole completions enable greater reservoir contact, more production at a lower drawdown and ultimately, increased hydrocarbon recovery.
