Collaborate & Educate to Reinstate, Rejuvenate and Optimise Production

The 24th SPE ICoTA Well Intervention Conference, jointly organized by SPE Aberdeen and ICoTA Europe,  is the largest and longest established conference of its kind in Europe. With a strong focus on maximising economic recovery (MER), it is increasingly important for companies to demonstrate how they are working collaboratively, efficiently and innovatively. This year, we conducted an exclusive survey with the Operators and identified the following key issues that will be addressed at the conference.

If you have the solutions, answers, examples which address these issues or have other experiences to share then we invite you to submit a short 200 word abstract:

Key Operator Issues

  • Improving efficiency for well preparation and pre-rig work
  • Intervening in hostile corrosive environments – HP/HT/Deep wells
  • Demonstrating the value of data gathering & surveillance to identify opportunities to the decision makers
  • What new technology options are out there?
  • Well stimulation methods which uses well intervention techniques, including pumping, chemicals and washes
  • What are the low cost optimisation techniques?
  • Access to platforms. How do you minimize your people and equipment footprints
  • Addressing the risk of failure of an intervention or well reinstatement

Abstracts open 2nd April and will close on 24th August 2018.

Companies are invited to provide abstracts of no more than 200 words for presentations lasting 25 minutes or for the 5 minute Techbyte Session. Contact icota@mearns-gill.com for more information or call 01224 646311.

Why attend?

The conference meets the needs for Intervention/Integrity Engineers, Completions Engineers, PEs, subsurface engineers, at a time when technical training and multi-vendor technology workshops have been reduced. It’s a great opportunity for knowledge sharing, personal development, network building and allows engineers to absorb much of what the industry has to offer in one room.

Why is our conference different?

  • It’s gained support from the Operators.
  • It’s a cost effective training opportunity where CPD points are applicable, essential for your career development.
  • It’s a focused conference and you will see genuine benefits from attending.
  • It’s a not-for-profit conference where all surplus funds are reinvested to support our future generation of young engineers.
