This paper describes how a systems engineering approach was used to develop completion technology targeted for the ultradeepwater Lower Tertiary Trend. The paper further describes how an integrated completion system was developed for this market from concept through qualification by an integrated product team. The integrated product team (IPT) is cross functional team that was assembled with the objective to develop a sandface to safety valve integrated completion solution. The approach began with a needs assessment including a reservoir study of the Lower Tertiary trend and voice of the customer exercise to gather information and define market problems. The team used a Design for Six Sigma methodology to develop system concepts and develop integrated system requirements. The concepts were vetted and refined into an integrated completion system that was designed, tested and qualified in a dramatically reduced product development cycle time.
