HOUSTON -- Star Deep Water Petroleum Ltd. (affiliate of Chevron Corp.) has deployed WellDynamics' SmartWell intelligent well completion technology in Nigeria's Agbami field. The two-zone completion, a first for Star Deep Water in Nigeria and offshore West Africa, will balance production between zones and control water encroachment into the wellbore.

The Agbami development plan consists of 20 oil producers, 12 water injectors, and six gas injector wells with flow control, permanent monitoring, or both. The single-wellbore completions are expected to produce from, or inject into, two distinct sand units.

The completion consists of WellDynamics' Direct Hydraulics with the Accu-Pulse downhole control system, multi-position HVC interval control valve (ICV) with customized flow trim, HF-1 packers and downhole gauges, as well as a multi-phase downhole flowmeter and an automated surface control system.
