Delivering Closed-Loop Operations to Reduce Production Costs in Oil and Gas Fields

Oil and gas companies have been generating huge amounts of data for several decades, long before the term IIoT was coined. Recent improvement in cloud, analytics and computing technology has enabled the transformation of data into insights to provide meaningful decision support to operational teams, enabling them to gain the next level of operational efficiencies. Read how the closed-loop framework help unlock values from big data and analytics – from producing wells to surface facilities- to achieve greater profitability.

Solids Management for Produced Water. How Can You be One Step Ahead of the Others?

When it comes to solids management, operators often found themselves in the demanding situation of engineering a solution without clear understanding of the range of solids concentration or composition. This turns engineered solutions into a practice of trial and error. This presented paper promotes the idea of developing a solids profile which includes identifying the sources of solids, analyzing the solids composition and properties, understanding the impact the solids can have when produced water gets used for different purposes, and making an appropriate decision on solids control depending on the intended use of the produced water.

Advanced Sucker Rod Coupling Material Optimizes Efficiency and Oil Productivity

Since 2016, 28 operators have installed sucker rod couplings made of ToughMet® 3 TS95 in more than 900 oil wells located in the Bakken and Permian Basin to mitigate failures caused by coupling-on-tubing wear. In addition to fewer costly workovers, engineers monitoring these wells reported unanticipated performance and well efficiency improvements. To quantify the additional benefits, several operators ran field trials specifically to assess the improvements in well performance after the installation of ToughMet couplings.
