Managed Pressure Drilling is a key growth area in the quest to enhance safety and efficiency while drilling complex wells. While MPD facilitates drilling in narrow windows, it is the cementing of tubulars in a circulating environment with multiple fluids that represents the biggest challenge and results in losses. The presentation describes an empirical methodology developed for MPA Cementation of liners and casing strings in narrow-margin environments while accounting for the unknowns such as hole washout, channeling, fluid mixing and the impact of centralizers and eccentricity.

In survey after survey, meetings come out top as the most time-wasting, unproductive and frustrating thing people do at work! Meetings should be energising. They should help get things done and leave participants with a sense of achievement. Effective meetings are a necessary part of a successful project and organisation.
In this masterclass / presentation Dr. Bill will refresh our memories on what hinders progress in meetings and more importantly, offer suggestions for making your meetings a valuable and enjoyable business tool.

“How to define the future of subsea well cementing” plants a seed of entrepreneurship for aspiring young engineers. Problems exist everywhere in our day-to-day working lives; turning those problems into solutions, then into a commercial business, is a journey of excitement, heart-ache, elation, commiseration and endless hard work, which is best started with an injection of inspiration.
This presentation joins the journey at the outset, defining the problem, and exploring the trials and tribulations of an engineer determined to make a difference to the traditionally conservative offshore well construction industry.

Location: Kurdistan Regional Governate, Iraq . Sulaymaniyah, Kifri / Kalar. September 2013 to March 2014.
Required to build a non formation damaging completion fluid to 2.41 SG (20.1 ppg) in order to test and put into production a high volume, high pressure oil well.
Hasira 1. This well was drilled to depth and tested. Following perforation the well was unable to be controlled at 2.11 SG (19 ppg) and was killed using a cement plug. The cement plug was drilled out and the well displaced to a novel drilling fluid purpose built for this job. Due to the location in Iraq and the local environmental laws it was not possible to use a high density clear brine. The option was to build a heavy fluid from trucked in material. This is an industry first at this density and this presentation shows the processes required.

Sponsored by Aucerna, the Petroleum Economics Conference is the first conference of its kind dedicated to the full cycle of reservoir discovery, project sanction and final investment decision criteria, and tax implications in the UK.
