TOTAL PREPARING FOR A HPHT EXPLORATION WELL USING A DIGITAL TWIN

Scarabeo-8-Tune

The Total Jasper team has prepared for the Jasper exploration well, by drilling the HPHT well in simulator using a digital twin prior to operations. A Digital Twin is the digital representation of your actual well. Used in preparation it enables you to pre-drill your well in the wellsSim hiDRILL simulator at the center located in Forus.

The operation is expected to take 90 days to complete. The well, located in the Total-operated production license 255B, will target a prospect named Jasper in a water depth of around 267 meters. Total will used Saipem’s Scarabeo 8 semi-submersible drilling rig for the drilling project. This is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the Moss CS50 MKII type, operated by Saipem Norge. It was built in Russia and Italy and commissioned in 2012. The facility is classified by DNV GL and registered in the Bahamas.
