About REDUX Enhanced Oil Recovery Technologies:
Q: Why is this technology different from other jetting or hydraulic fracturing technologies?
Q: For a vertical well what information do you require at the outset?
Q: Is the technology applicable to any kind of formation?
Q: Is REDUX for new reservoirs, depleted reservoirs or also for damaged ones?
Q: Can REDUX be applied in new wells to replace conventional methods?
REDUX as it relates to fracturing and other enhancements:
Q: What is the difference between REDUX and Fracturing?
Q: How does the additional production value that REDUX brings (when used for production enhancement operations) compare with that of the hydraulic fracturing?
Q: Technically speaking, how would a hydraulic frac job compare to a REDUX job?
Q: What are the main differences between polymer flooding or gas injection compared to the REDUX process?
Pressure related questions:
Q: What is the maximum pressure on surface?
Q: What is the max surface pressure required to be able to cut multiple casing strings at say ~ 15,000 ft?
Q: How about the effect on the DP’s and surface equipment from the erosion of the DP’s.
Q: How can we assure this pressure will not be exposed to the formation?
Q: How we are filling the DP’s while RIH and how we can establish circulation while RIH if need it or in case of well control issue.
Q: Will 5000 PSI be the maximum required pressure ratings of the pumps or more pressure could/will be required?
Cutting and excavating related questions:
Q: Can a slice be cut with a certain dipping ( i.e. parallel to formation dipping) at a certain angle?
Q: How you control the depth of cut?
Q: Does REDUX have the ability of making 2 sets in one run at different depth?
Q: Regarding the slurry used to do the excavation, will it be brought up to surface or remain in the formation. If up to the service, how will it be done?
Q: How are the cuttings and excavated material brought to surface?
Production and implementation related questions
Q: What is the correlation tool (Gyro, MWD, etc….) ?
Q: Due you need special connection for the BHA?
Q: How we can cure the losses if any (is there any limitation for LCM)?
Q: Does REDUX need a rig to do the job or a coiled tubing unit is enough and acceptable?
Q: How will the tool be operated? Hydraulically, Mechanically etc.
Q: What are the available tools sizes?
Q: Can the service be run via wire-line or slick-line?
Q: After doing the excavation, how will it be guaranteed that the formation will not collapse?
Q: What is the typical procedure, process, or method for a REDUX application?
Q: What information is required by REDUX to evaluate the Job?
Q: What about 3rd party costs?
Q: What pricing components are involved in a REDUX application?
Q: What is the minimum time to mobilize the tools?
