Ranger Angola - Multi-Lateral Well Design Planning & Procurement

Designed first MLT well from a semisubmersible rig in deepwater for the Kiame field. FPSO was on order and only one well was expected to be ready for production. To enhance production in the time frame and to meet schedule requirements an MLT well was planned which led to a dramatic improvement in field economics and was an economic success.
