Research Contract Award Value

The Contractor shall update the existing HPHT well data by plotting bottom hole pressure and bottomhole temperature versus true vertical depth (TVD) for GOM wells that have been drilled from 2006 to 2014. These plots should distinguish between wells at greater than 1 OOOft water depth (deep water wells) and those wells in less than lOOOft water depth (shallow water wells). Information from BSEE's Technical Information Management System (TIMS) and eWell Permitting and Reporting System (eWell) will be necessary for the update including well log. Information to acquire the bottom hole temperature data and TVD and drilling mud information to determine the bottom hole pressure. The updated temperature and pressure plots will include wells drilled from 2000 to the present and will be provided to the public.
