How much do you know about problems that occur in the oil and gas industry? The workmen in the field have to complete many phases to ensure a well gets to the producing phase. If there is a delay, it can be for reasons we have identified and shared below.
Workover operations generally involve using a special workover rig to restore or stimulate production from a particular well. A situation in which a workover may be necessary would be an open hole completion where sand from the producing formation has clogged the tubing end, reducing or completely cutting off the fluid flow from the producing horizon. A workover may also be necessary when the casing has been perforated, and rock or sand particles have clogged the openings in the casing.
Other problems and oil and gas company may encounter is regarding damaged or lost equipment and materials. Equipment or materials may be damaged or lost during the drilling process. Some examples of damaged equipment would be twisted drillpipe or broken bit. Examples of lost equipment include parts of the drill bit, hand tools (e.g., wrenches) and drillpipe twisted off downhole. If the well is an exploratory well, the cost are expenses or capitalized, depending upon whether the well is unsuccessful or successful.
