The “Well Integrity Management: A Deepwater Approach” workshop was held 7–8 November 2012 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
“This workshop provided an excellent opportunity for specialists and decision makers to know and talk about the new technologies, best practices, and challenges in the management of well integrity…especially those located in deep waters,” said Otto Luiz Alcantara Santos, workshop chairperson, senior consultant at Petrobras, and of SPE Bahia/Sergipe Section chairperson.
With the support of the SPE Bahia Section, this workshop featured 20 technical presentations from speakers from around the globe. Approximately 65 professionals from 7 countries and 19 different companies attended this event. Representatives from each student chapter in the Bahia/Sergipe SPE Section also volunteered during the implementation of the workshop.
This workshop was a part of a global series of events with the main focus on collecting best practices in well integrity to be used on the creation of the well integrity best practices manual.
