The New Generation of Vallourec High-Strength Sour Service Grades

Thursday, November 5, 2020 9:00 AM

Whatever the level of difficulty of your well environment – in GoM with 20K offshore projects, in Brazil with complex offshore salt domes formations or in the Middle East with extreme sour and high pressure (15K) conditions – Vallourec supports you with a comprehensive tubular offer in high-strength sour service grades. With the decrease of oil prices, operators are further challenging us to push the technical limits in sour service materials by finding the most cost-effective solution that combines high-strength steels and good resistance to sulphide stress cracking (SSC). In this area, VM 110 XS grade has been developed for extreme sour service conditions (ppH2S> 15psi) with 110ksi Specified Minimum Yield Stress (SMYS). The limit is also being pushed further with the field-proven VM 125 SS grade and newly developed VM 125 ESS and VM 130 MS grades with even higher SMYS (125ksi and 130ksi) to be used in milder service conditions. During this webcast, Carine Landier will share the methodology necessary to qualify these materials for such critical conditions. The results so far will reflect both the performance of the new grades developed and the new challenges we face

How Chemical Tracers can reduce costs, boost production, and guide adaptive strategies in a rapidly changing oilfield market

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 9:00 AM

With oil prices hitting decade lows and energy activities downsized during a global pandemic, operators globally are seeking assurance that every spend drives a strong return on investment. Yet many completion and production choices are made in an environment of uncertainty, making technology that can inform well design and operational planning more crucial than ever. Chemical tracers are one such tool. A proven and reliable method of reservoir surveillance, tracer studies have demonstratable value for quickly and accurately adapting field strategies to real-time market needs. Whether a conventional or unconventional field, a properly designed and utilized tracer study has the potential to reduce lifting costs, improve production, and mitigate risk to CAPEX/OPEX spends. In this webinar, industry experts will provide an overview of current tracer technologies, dispel marketing myths, and detail a holistic use of tracers and the value added for multiple case studies across the globe. Application of tracers in hydraulically fractured wells, extended-reach well inflow studies, and flood-driven EOR case studies will all be covered. By the conclusion of this talk, the audience will have a working knowledge of the frontiers of tracer technology as well as an understanding of how this potent, low-risk, and low-cost tool can innovate their current field production plans.
