Lundin Energy announces significant productivity increases with Fishbones Technology on the Edvard Grieg field

31 August 2021

Lundin Energy has announced productivity figures from their work on the first of three infill wells in the North Sea’s Edvard Grieg field. 

The A-17 well, which came on stream in June 2021, has recorded a productivity rate 10 times greater than original projections with the contribution of Fishbones’ Drilling Technology. This is the greatest increase in production that Fishbones has facilitated to-date and represents a significant operational success for the technology. 

Proud to think laterally

17 August 2021

An overview of Fishbones’ company culture by VP Global Sales, Marketing & Application Engineering, Thomas Jørgensen.

At Fishbones, we often talk about thinking laterally. While this is of course a reference to our unique lateral stimulation technology, it is also central to our values and culture as a company. Lateral thinking defines Fishbones’ bold, out of the box mentality that is rooted in a drive to go above and beyond for our technology, our customers, and our team.

Fishbones announces the completion of a new production well with Lundin Energy

22 May 2021

Fishbones and Lundin Energy Norway have announced the completion of a new production well on the Edvard Grieg field. 

Parts of the reservoir on Edvard Grieg consist of conglomerates, which is a hard and tight reservoir type. The Fishbones technology, which was used on the well, increases the effective drainage radius around the production wells by drilling several small holes out from the main well. This enables the production of increased oil in what is relatively tight reservoir rocks.

ADNOC triples production in tight reservoir using Fishbones Jetting

7 January 2021

We are pleased to start 2021 by being featured on the front page of this January’s Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT), covering news of our successful pilot well with ADNOC.

The reservoir suffered from low permeability and poor vertical communication, making it difficult to develop economically.  However, by using our unique Fishbones Jetting system, we overcame these issues.
