The purpose of this forum is to identify and develop the means to improve drilling and completion efficiency in terms of well objectives. The forum will identify key performance metrics in value from wells, cost of wells, speed of delivery by assessing benchmarks and consequences leading to an understanding of how a step-change improvement can be achieved in equipment and process reliability. The forum will be inclusive of data acquisition, drilling operations and completion installation; focusing on the ends of the well-type spectrum represented by low cost land-based well manufacturing and high cost complex deepwater offshore wells. The topics will include equipment, people, and processes leading to action plans for delivering improvements. Some of the key topics that will be covered include definitions, measurement, benchmarking, value, reliability, supply chain, logistics, training, communications, improvement and implementation.
The Well Construction Efficiency Forum content has been organized for participants to take an active journey from evaluating the right measurements to apply, through developing personal action plans to create change. Experts from inside and outside the well construction industry will provoke thought and lead highly interactive debates during the stages designed into this journey which are:
The committee plans to capture a summary of the output from sessions 1 through 3 to enable the industry to define relevant KPI’s that can be improved and will deliver value.
A written summary of sessions 4 through 8 may be prepared and distributed to attendees after the forum with unanimous attendee agreement and at the discretion of the steering committee and SPE approval.
A personal action plan will be generated in session 9 as a means to support the implementation of change and generate value for participants and their companies.
SPE Forums are unique, by-invitation-only SPE events that bring together top technologists, innovators, and managers to address a specific industry challenge. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to contribute their experience and knowledge, rather than be spectators or students.
The objective is to create a collaborative, idea-generating arena that stimulates new ideas and innovation about future challenges facing the E&P industry.
If you have a role to play in meeting the challenges of tomorrow head-on, apply today.
Participants at SPE Forums are selected by the Forum Steering Committee based on the ability to contribute to the discussion of the topic. Attendance is limited to maximize each person's opportunity to contribute.
Accepted applicants will receive their registration form and other materials within two weeks of the application deadline. For those requiring visas to attend the forum, please ensure that you leave sufficient time for your visa to be processed.
