187591 – Successful Installation of 1st 15K Multistage Completion System in North Kuwait Gas Well

Summary

To optimize production in the target MT formation, KOC selected a monobore design to complete the North Kuwait Gas wells. A trial was conducted in a new well to install a 15K rated open hole multistage completion system. This paper describes the best practices and learning in planning and installation of the first successful open hole multistage completion system in a high pressure gas well in Kuwait, and includes recommendations for future installations in similar wells with large variations in reservoir characteristics.
