Dual completion Definition


Dual completion:

A single well that produces from two separate formation at the same time.

Production from each zone is segregated by running two tubing strings with packers inside the single string of production casing, or by running one tubing string with a packer through one zone while the other is produced through the annulus.

In a miniaturized dual completion, two separate 4 1/2-inch or smaller casing strings are run and cemented in the same wellbore.
