Completion:

1.

Refers to the installation of permanent equipment for the production of oil or gas.

2.

The hardware used to optimize the production of hydrocarbons from the well.

This may range from nothing but a packer on tubing above an¬†openhole completion (“barefoot” completion), to a system of mechanical filtering elements outside of perforated pipe, to a fully automated¬†measurement and control system that optimizes reservoir economics without human intervention (an “intelligent” completion).
