BP Amoco Sharjah has extended by two years an existing contract for Halliburton's Energy Services Group to provide underbalanced drilling (UBD) services in BP's Sajaa Field in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The extended contract capitalizes on the safe and dependable application of underbalanced services already provided by Halliburton. BP recently completed its 10th well in a very successful application of underbalanced drilling in the Sajaa field.

A consortium is providing services for the BP project where Halliburton is facilitating the underbalanced portion with its advanced Four Phase Separation System, a key component in the delivery of the Halliburton Underbalanced Applications service. Using Halliburton's technology, well stream fluid returns are processed to optimize use and conform to stringent environmental requirements. Hydrocarbon recovery entails the compression and re-injection of gas and the pumping of condensate into the production line. Solids and produced water, once confirmed environmentally compatible, are disposed of to dedicated land farms.

On the project, Halliburton is also using its SCAN™3 and INSITE™ Data Acquisition and Management System, which gathers and processes data from all sources and presents them in a common format throughout the onsite SCAN network system.

Randy Pruitt, BP Sharjah Oil Company's drilling manager, said: "BP greatly appreciates Halliburton for the effort in the Sharjah UB CTD program, which has helped BP Sharjah reach the five million man-hours and five years without a DAFWC lost-time incident."

"We are excited by the success BP is enjoying in Sharjah and are pleased that underbalanced drilling technology is enabling them to outperform benchmark production values in the field," said Gary Godwin, division vice president, Tools, Testing & Tubing Conveyed Perforating product service line, Halliburton.

"Our UBA team has proactively supported a successful safety program led and committed to by BP, and we have been recognized for our leading role. We are also pleased with the opportunity to provide our reservoir-focused approach as the project moves from an initial prototype investigation to a longer term project. As the industry recognizes the value of this reservoir performance-centered approach, Halliburton looks forward to providing UBA services to a wider array of reservoirs such as fractured carbonates, reverse condensate drives, lower pressure maturing fields, and others."
