Abstract: Technology developed to harness extended reach deviated (ERD) wells for deep-water and longer laterals for unconventionals demand the use of reliable “Dissolvable Alloys”. Furthermore, an economic prediction mechanism to assess the degree of dissolution of deployed dissolvable hardware is highly coveted. This is one of the bottlenecks preventing the increased adoption of dissolvables in both deep-water and multistage stimulation (MSS). DAMORPHE was founded to take advantage of recent Mechanical-Materials-Electrical (MME) innovations for development and commercialization of “Game-Changing” technologies through the selective use of amorphous and nanocrystalline dissolvable alloys with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Here we discuss a couple of applications where dissolvable materials bring enhanced functionality over traditional methods and present a case for how replacing these with intelligent materials can bring further benefits to the end users.
