01 ALS Problems and Their Solutions I

Session Chairpersons:

Claudia Rubio, Dover Artificial Lift; Franklin Cueto, Weatherford International

Artificial lift systems (ALS) inherently have problems for many reasons. Within these three sessions, presenters will share problems they have encountered and different approaches they have taken to solve them.

02 Monitoring and Optimization I

Session Chairpersons:

Fernando Diego Bertomeu, OilProduction.net; Peter Olugboyega Oyewole, BP America Inc

As the capabilities of oilfield electronics, both downhole and on the surface, expand exponentially, monitoring key parameters and optimizing a plethora of systems becomes more commonplace. Operators and service companies are taking full advantage of having details about the countless critical parameters to efficiently and effectively operate wells and the equipment installed in these wells. Presenters will share some of the leading monitoring and optimization applications and practices.
