You are invited to share your operational experience and lessons learned by submitting a paper proposal for consideration. Your submission must be received by 8 August 2017.
Case Histories are invited illustrating operational experience and lessons learned in the following technologies including the innovative use or technical developments of these technologies in intervention or thru-tubing applications:
- Coiled and Capillary Tubing Applications
- Electric Line Applications
- Slick and Braided Line Applications
- Snubbing and Hydraulic Workover Applications
- Application of other Conveyance Methods
Other abstract categories will address the following focus areas:
HSE, Well Control and Well Integrity
Operational experiences and lessons learned in relation to HSE, well control, and well integrity.
Improving Operational Efficiency
Using traditional downhole and surface intervention systems in unique or more efficient ways; application of redesigned equipment or processes to maximize return on resources or minimize operational time.
Latest Developments in Equipment, Tools, and Materials
Operational experiences and technical developments related to equipment, tools, and materials utilized to optimize or enable well intervention operations.
Latest Developments in Intervention Solutions
Technology development which aims to enable and expand the arena of well intervention operations including the results of experimental research and performance, or other modelling.
Well Abandonment Operations
Well or zonal abandonment operations including methods and technologies for installing and verifying permanent barriers as well as lightweight surface solutions to avoid the use of expensive drilling units.
Operations in Extreme Well Conditions
Operational experiences and technical developments to overcome the challenges presented by ever more challenging well conditions including HPHT, ERD, and deep water wells.
Offshore and Subsea Well Intervention Operations
Operational experiences and technical developments to address the challenges of working in the offshore environment including operations performed from light well intervention vessels, semi-sub, jack-ups, barges, boats, and platforms.
Stimulation and Conformance Operations
Operational experiences and lessons learned in the application of intervention technologies to fracturing, including multi-stage completion techniques, matrix acidizing, or other stimulation operations and to flow conformance operations including water and gas shut-off.
Horizontal and Multi-Lateral Operations
The application of intervention technologies in horizontal and multi-lateral wells.
Coiled Tubing Drilling Operations
Operational experiences and lessons learned in coiled tubing drilling operations.
The application of intervention technologies to industries other than the petroleum industry or to challenges other than well intervention including surface piping and pipeline clean out. This category also includes the potential application of equipment and techniques from other industries to well intervention.
The submission deadline is 8 August 2017.
In an effort to further improve SPE’s technical quality standards, all submitted conference papers will be checked for plagiarism.
