02 Improving Operational Efficiency

Session Chairpersons:

Rex Burgos, Schlumberger; Rair Barraez, Sanjel Corporation

Improving operational efficiency in well intervention activities can significantly impact your business with better HSE performance, decreased cost, and/or more efficiently used resources, including staff and equipment. This session will present successfully improved operational efficiency and proven approaches that can be adopted in other operations, or in some cases, could also lead to new technologies.

03 Well Intervention Applications I

Session Chairpersons:

Tom Keltner, Shell International E&P; Alan Turner, Halliburton - Boots & Coots

This session is focused on applications, including P&A, using what are considered the heavier well intervention techniques (e.g. HWO). It also presents applications for remedial repair of a casing using a CT/slick line combination and introduces a surface technique that both improves safety and also reduces CT intervention time required. While geographically these presentations range from offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, land operations in North America and also Central Eastern Africa, the material presented could be applied globally.

04 CT Materials and Integrity

Session Chairpersons:

Alex Crabtree, Hess Corporation; Ryan Addison, Tenaris Coiled Tubes

Recent years have seen coiled tubing utilized heavily in fracturing operations for unconventional wells, but with the need to use non-potable or recycled water, new challenges have emerged in protecting the tubing from corrosion. The first part of this session will feature a panel session after paper presentations, allowing attendees to discuss this issue. The second part of the session will look at new, developing CT materials to meet the industry requirement for stronger and more sour-resistant pipe. NDE of CT strings has become more common and the instrumentation continues to improve. This session will provide an opportunity to hear about these improvements.
