How Chemical Tracers can reduce costs, boost production, and guide adaptive strategies in a rapidly changing oilfield market
July 29, 2020
Sponsored by: Tracerco
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.
Vallourec’s THERMOCASE® Vacuum Insulated Tubing (VIT): a cost-effective solution for geothermal applications
July 22, 2020
Sponsored by: Vallourec
Geothermal energy is a clean and sustainable resource generated by the heat below the Earth’s surface. Vallourec’s THERMOCASE® tubing has been a key component in a new closed loop extraction technology developed by GreenFire Energy to expand the scope and reduce the cost of geothermal power generation. THERMOCASE® VIT is an ideal candidate for such application, with best in class insulation performance and high service temperature. Due to the nature of the pilot, some specific performance required adjustments of design parameters to allow safe performance of the VIT in the field during the test. During this webcast, Gabriel Roussie will share the specificities and benefits of this solution and give an insight into the successful project with GreenFire Energy.
Abaco Power Sections - How our Technology is Changing Drilling Optimization
July 16, 2020
Sponsored by: Abaco Drilling
This webinar will feature field data and case studies from the Permian and Eagle Ford about Abaco’s latest engineering innovation; single direction stators with deviated profiles. These new stator profiles address performance drilling stresses on the power section lower end with a variable fit which reduces friction and overheating. This results in greater power section reliability and a reduction in field failure rates in all drilling applications. The case studies will present common issues and challenges seen in stator technology today including stall and thermal damage and the way that Abaco’s OPTIFIT Technology specifically addresses these challenges.
