This webinar will be about the pitfalls, problems, and lessons learned encountered in planning an extra-HPHT completion.  The well is an exploratory land well located in south Louisiana.  The completion interval is a sandstone below 23,000, 18.7 ppg environment, maximum anticipated surface pressure is 19,300 psi, bottom hole temperature is 395F, and H2S and CO2 are anticipated.

Examples of pitfalls encountered in completion design will include tubing design & qualification issues, perforating challenges, limited downhole production equipment, vendor selection & manufacturing challenges, and lack of service tools.  The webinar will focus on unexpected problems encountered during design and planning, and not as much on known technology gaps.
