HPHT wells were once a very low percentage of wells drilled globally, but this has now changed. Sustained oil prices and maturing fields are pushing major operators to exploit the more difficult and demanding HPHT reservoirs in order to increase or maintain production at current levels. The Asia Pacific region has seen rapid growth in HPHT activities, ranging from exploration and appraisal to full-fledged development campaigns.
Important contributors to the recent successes in HPHT are prompt and frequent sharing of experiences among operators, service providers, and regulating bodies in technology workshops, conferences, and forums. Sharing of common experiences across the globe drives the ability to cope with new challenges, sparks innovation, and deepens the horizon of hydrocarbon discovery.
This workshop focuses on the latest technology, design and best practices that contributed to drastic improvement in safety and efficiency in drilling, evaluation and completion of these HPHT wells. An emphasis on case studies and an interactive breakout session will ensure more benefit to participants.
This workshop will promote safe and cost effective HPHT well design and operations through:
This Workshop will provide a platform for E&P industry practitioners of various disciplines, service providers, regulators as well as academicians and researchers to interact with each other, discuss and share concerns and experiences with respect to emerging issues, good practices and learning from incidents/failures on HPHT projects.
The workshop is meant for experienced individuals who will share their own case histories and experience and will actively contribute to the discussion. We expect participation from asset managers, experts and decision makers involved in Subsurface Interpretation & Modelling, Drilling & Completions, Well Control, OCTG, Cement, MWD/LWD/E-Log, Geomechanics and Pore Pressure Prediction, Well Design Verification, Wellhead Design, Well Testing and Subsea Systems.
In keeping with the Workshop objectives and the SPE mission, excessive commercialism in posters or presentations will not be permitted. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter and others involved in the work.
All attendees will receive an attendance certificate attesting to their participation at the Workshop. This certificate will be provided in exchange for a completed Workshop Attendee Survey Form.
This Workshop qualifies for SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU) at the rate of 0.1 CEU per hour of the Workshop.
General and detailed accommodation information will be posted on the workshop website by September 2014.
