Hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation may occur in challenging environments, which require innovative solutions to lower the costs and risks of operations. SMPs are finding an increasing number of applications in the upstream oil & gas industry, where they respond dynamically to changes in downhole temperature. This article will provide readers with a review of the fundamentals of oil & gas operations, including drilling, completion and stimulation of wells, and a comprehensive coverage of design and testing of SMPs for each operation.
