Oil & Gas UK has released new guideline on wells with high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) properties.

The move comes as part of industry’s efforts to tackle its cost base and improve efficiency.

The aim is to provide the sector with a common framework to outline good practice, reduce operational complexity and improve safety performance.

Mike Tholen, upstream policy director, at Oil & Gas UK, said:”Even in a mature basin, the High Temperature High Pressure (HPHT) resource base remains an exciting opportunity. The Guidelines for HPHT well design, operation and maintenance published today have been developed by Oil & Gas UK’s Wells Forum to share industry knowledge and best practice for the benefit of both well operators and drilling contractors alike.

“Building on Oil & Gas UK’s Well Integrity Guidelines published earlier this year, this publication provides additional information in areas including project planning, well design, HPHT cementing and well construction operations, well testing and abandonment. These guidelines will add to the industry’s shared knowledge as we seek to exploit the potential of the UKCS to the full in pursuit of Maximising Economic Recovery.”
