Chairs: Karthik Annadorai, GATE, Inc.; Monte Goodner, W-Industries
This session will discuss aspects to consider for robust chemical injection system design and commissioning by incorporating lessons learned and success stories.
Chairs: John Waldvolgel, NALCO Champion; Nikhil Joshi, Anadarko
Production chemical selection and deployment strategies are critical to ensure that flow assurance issues are resolved as planned. This session discusses various aspects to consider for the selection and injection of these chemicals.
Chairs: Mark Edwards, Shell; Rama Alapati, BHP Billiton
Production in deeper waters brings with it a host of different challenges. This session discusses the production chemistry issues associated with subsea developments and changes that have occurred in the industry. The topic of preparation for the future will be included.
Chair: Chris LeBlanc, Chevron
There are many risks involved when dealing with oilfield production chemicals. These hazards include working with high pressures, exposure to corrosive chemicals, biological exposure, and possible damage due to mechanical motion. Production chemistry in the realm of process safety, asset integrity, compatibility testing, and lessons learned from root cause analyses will be addressed.
Chairs: Dave Hugg, Shell; Howard Duhon, GATE, Inc.
It is easy to say that chemical injection rate control valves don’t work. This session discusses the most feared aspect of chemical injection systems—chemical injection rate control valves and associated systems issues.
Chairs: Alison Carey, Chevron; Casey Blake, Shell
High demands in shale production have escalated challenges around production chemistry. These demands place high production targets on oil and gas producers while maintaining regulatory compliance and reducing operating costs. This session will focus on chemical use on secondary recovery, corrosion prevention, gas processing, and heavy crude production.
Chairs: Tommy Golczynski, Assured Flow Solutions LLC
Subsurface production chemistry issues will be discussed. Focus will be on near wellbore areas and considerations to mitigate these issues.
Chair: Mark Edwards, Shell
This session will focus on case histories of chemical injection systems and lessons learned. The intent is to provide the participants takeaways.
