Understanding the Well Completion Process

Based in Grapevine, Texas Energy Mutual, LLC, is an oil and gas exploration company focusing heavily on prospects in Oklahoma. Powered by a workforce with more than 150 years of combined industry experience, Texas Energy Mutual provides services at all phases of well exploration.

A number of oil and gas operations work with clients from the analysis of a potential well site through the final phases of project completion. In the oil and gas industry, project completion is often defined as a well that is capable of providing users with oil or gas. Before a well becomes viable, engineers must first reach total depth (TD) and begin the casing process. The casing process necessitates the running of a steel pipe from the surface down to the well to control fluid movement and minimize the risk of a cave-in.

After the casing has been properly fitted and cemented to further strengthen the line, well engineers finalize the project by opening holes in the casing surrounding the producing zone, running tubes down the TD, and installing control valves at the wellhead. Only after the wellhead has been adequately prepared can users begin drawing oil or gas.
