Drill cost-effectively with standardized and validated well geopressure data
Can you afford to drill a well without understanding the subsurface pressure regimes in the Gulf of Mexico?
Within the Gulf of Mexico, some industry analysts have stated that more than 90 percent of unpredicted drilling downtime is due to overpressure. Globally, annual costs to industry are estimated at nearly $8B. The IHS Gulf of Mexico Pressure Database is one of the most comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date geopressure databases in the world. It provides immediate and accurate subsurface data so you can make informed decisions and stay competitive.
