Revolutionary P & A – melting rock using Thermite – Mike Richardson, Spirit Energy
Wednesday January 24, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Revolutionary P&A – Melting Rock Using Thermite Mike Richardson, Head of Wells Function and TA, Spirit Energy Outline: As the mature oil and gas basins of the world increasingly turn their attention to decommissioning, well abandonment costs have become an intense focus. New tools, techniques and guidelines are all emerging. One of the more radical approaches […]
West of Shetland: Whose bright idea was it to drill there? Claudia Piemonte and Ksenia Budkina of TOTAL
Wednesday February 28, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This presentation will share all highlights, lowlights and lessons learnt from development drilling operations on Laggan-Tormore. The intention is to share Total’s knowledge and expertise to enhance the industry’s appetite for sanctioning future projects West of Shetland, an area well known for its harsh environment.
Total will explain how they have mitigated risks with appropriate planning, adapting equipment, applying reliable technology and the right expertise and will describe how, with these elements in place, drilling operations can be delivered on time and below budget.
Integrated Historical WorkFlows: Maximising the value of a mature asset – SPE Distinguished Lecturer Anne Valentine of SCHLUMBERGER
Wednesday March 28, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Industry studies show that mature fields currently account for over 70% of the world’s oil and gas production. Increasing production rates and ultimate recovery in these fields in order to maintain profitable operations, without increasing costs, is a common challenge.
This presentation addresses techniques to extract maximum value from historical production data using quick workflows based on common sense. Extensive in-depth reservoir studies are obviously very valuable, but not all situations require these, particularly in the case of brown fields where the cost of the study may outweigh the benefits of the resulting recommendations.
