The success of hydraulic fracturing technologies in North America is raising interest to develop unconventional resources in various parts of the world where freshwater resources are not readily available. The presentation will describe technologies currently available for fracturing applications using lower-quality water, fluid systems
that minimize or eliminate water, and systems based on non-aqueous liquids, or even no liquids at all.
Join the 17 February web event on “Shale Formation Re-Fracturing; Why do it, What is Needed and How?” presented by Ibrahim S. Abou-Sayed. Multi-fractured horizontal wells in Shale plays exhibit, sometimes dramatic, performance decline due to deterioration in completion efficiency. This decline is caused by one or more physical processes. These processes cause an adverse impact on the effective fracture dimensions and are controlled by pressure changes.
Renew before it ends on 31 December 2014.
SPE has formed a new Technical Section for sharing technical knowledge, experiences, best practices, and solutions in Drilling Performance Simulation and Prediction. This new section will address major challenges affecting the safety and efficiency of drilling operations.
Join the 19 November web event on “Robotic Drilling Systems” presented by Kenneth Mikalsen. In this web event, Robotic Drilling Systems AS will present the results and status of its research and development program, and discuss how the robotic drill floor will be introduced in the industry.
Attend a web event on “Human Factors in Drilling: Are there practical tools for use at the wellsite?” presented by John Thorogood on 12 November. The purpose of the webinar is to present the concept of Threat and Error Management to the audience, to engage with them and to seek their feedback as to whether this approach is viable in today’s operational climate.
Attend a web event on “Meeting the Challenges of Effective Occurrence Investigations” presented by Maury Hill on 5 November. Occurrences (accidents and incidents), whether they take place in the transportation industry, health care settings or in highly industrialized plants, occur regularly and all too frequently, sometimes with fatal and disastrous results. Occurrences place a great burden on organizations, their workers, and at times the general public. This web event will be of interest to all those interested in developing an effective investigation system, and in developing skills in effectively investigating the causes of accidents, incidents and unsafe conditions in their environment.
Listen to a live webinar on “EPA Subpart Quad O—Opportunities, Technologies and Solutions for Vent Gas Management in Upstream Oil and Gas Operations.” Presented by Jeff Voorhis and Audrey Mascarenhas, this web event will be broadcast on 23 September. Hear about a new federal air quality rule governing midstream and upstream activity that is now in effect. The rule contains new regulations and revisions to existing statutes, as well as has a major impact on how the Oil and Gas industry has been operating regarding waste gas emissions. Vent Gas Management is an area companies need to explore to increase their bottom line and reduce liability. This talk will be on opportunities, solutions and techniques in Vent Gas Management.
