  • "We are drilling wells now that we can't complete," said Kevin Lacy, VP of drilling and completion in the Gulf of Mexico for BP. Some of the wells are possible because of high-spec drilling equipment, he noted, but the completions equipment is not yet available. "We're starting to see (conditions) in excess of 15,000psi." Other looming challenges include wells beyond 30,000ft, bottomhole pressures exceeding 20,000psi, temperatures over 250° F, hard-to-reach bottomhole locations, complex sand face completions and complex intervention requirements, Lacy said.
