Frac Hits: Child-Parent Interactions

Thursday, January 31, 2019 10:00 AM

In North America’s most active shale fields, infill drilling and hydraulic fracturing of new wells is placing wells at risk of suffering premature production declines. In some areas of the Permian, frac hits have caused child wells to deliver a 30% lower recovery rate than their parents. Some parent wells impacted by frac hits never fully recover and, in the worst cases, permanently stop producing. Understanding the environment that allows contact by a hydraulic fracture emanating from a new well “child” to an old well “parent” is important in determining how to prevent these interactions. We are still in the early stages of understanding the interaction between child and parent wells but in this 60-minute presentation we will discuss the known causes of this issue as well as the tools and analysis that are currently available to help you detect and mitigate frac hits.

Improve Asset Reliability with Predictive Analytics for Oil and Gas Production

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 10:00 AM

Oil and gas producers have been losing on average 3–5% of their production to unplanned downtime over the past years. With the advancement in technology, companies can leverage Predictive Technology to significantly improve business performance through improved asset reliability and reduced unplanned downtime. Whether the asset is an offshore pumping station, compressor or drilling rigs, predictive analytics enables modelling of equipment behaviours using advanced pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms to identify and diagnose any potential operating issues days or weeks before failures happen. Learn how Industry 4.0 and Asset Performance Management solutions, including predictive maintenance, mobility, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), empower companies to: 1) Improve asset ROI through early warning of asset failure before it happens, reducing unplanned downtime and improving asset availability 2) Reduce operations and maintenance costs 3) Extend equipment life and increase asset utilization.

Coiled Tubing Oil & Gas Well Intervention

Tuesday, December 4, 2018 10:00 AM

Coiled-tubing (CT) technology dates back to the 1950s and was initially developed for working on live, producing wells. More recently, CT technology has gained acceptance among operators for a wide range of applications and for its ability to reduce overall costs. This webinar will cover modern coiled-tubing technology and techniques, economics, and safety as well as CT equipment and intervention services such as stimulation, wellbore cleanout, logging, perforating, fishing, nitrogen kickoff, sand control, cementing, well circulation and mechanical isolation.

Smart Tubular Solutions: Deepwater Applications

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 9:00 AM

Through a combination of optimized and standardized well design, risk mitigation and cost reduction, operators continue to push the boundaries of deep water exploration both in terms of geographical frontiers and technological advances to confront increased temperature and pressure. This presentation will provide some examples of OCTG well designs of pipe and connections being used to support deepwater projects along with additional critical considerations to ensure the weakest point of the string is understood. By incorporating actual pipe information, we can look to support operators to allow the potential build of a digital well. The digital well is Vallourec’s latest development to support deepwater and critical operations, to improve efficiency and generate the best results.
