In an effort to assist authors submit their best papers to conferences and journals, SPE is offering a web event hosted by SPE member Byron Haynes, Jr. P.E. on “How to Write a Good Technical Paper.” In this presentation, Haynes will cover both basics and some more advanced methods for authors. Post presentation, he will field questions from participants.
Listen to a web event on “Addressing Infectious Diseases in Oil and Gas Workplace” presented by Malick Diara on 23 March. This presentation will cover Infectious diseases threats, prevention and control of such threats, case studies, and more.
Join Paul Jackson on 22 April as he discusses “Managing Employee Fatigue through a Fatigue Risk Management Plan.”
A significant portion of operating costs in brownfields is related to lifting costs and maintenance of artificial lift equipment. Problems can lead to premature abandonment of a field despite the fact that significant oil and gas reserves remain in the reservoir. To combat this loss of reserves and valuable energy resource, a number of measures must be taken. The presentation will provide a field case showing this process and will give a detailed insight of the basket of technical solutions and the commercial impact.

Numerous schemes to use solvent and heat have been invented and patented for in-situ heavy oil recovery from oil sand formations. However, there is a lack of basic phase behavior data and mechanistic knowledge about the solvent/heat assisted recovery processes. This talk will provide quantitative mechanistic insights into the processes.

From its beginning, microseismic imaging of hydraulic fracturing has created controversy. Gain an understanding of the foundation of the “ground truth” from microseismic imaging data, an appreciation for the implementation and benefits of the technology, and an awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of the technology. This interdisciplinary technology combines geophysics, geology, and geomechanics with well completion technologies.

SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section Presents:
Correlating Flow Regimes and Fluid Properties with Corrosion in Pipelines
Presenter: Dr. Probjot Singh, ConocoPhillips
When: Thursday, 22 January from 1100 to 1300 hours CDT
Where: Norris Conference Center, CityCentre, 816 Town & Country Blvd., Suite 210, Houston, TX
Registration Fee: SPE Member, USD 40; Nonmember, USD 50
The presentation will discuss corrosion mechanisms that have emerged in production systems due to changes in flow regimes and thermal behavior as conditions changed during field operations. We will see how corrosion monitoring data with fluid analyses, flow modeling, and additional laboratory testing have been effectively used to understand the corrosion mechanism and develop solutions for control.
1100–1130: Registration and Networking
1200–1300: Presentation and Q&A
Attend a web event on “Application Fiber Optic Technology for Well and Reservoir Management” presented by Gustavo Ugueto and Paul Huckabee on 26 February.
Attend a web event on “Safety Culture Before and After Bhopal” presented by Howard Duhon on 11 March. This webinar will tackle some challenging questions such as – ‘How is safety culture different today?’, ‘What impact did Bhopal have?’, and ‘Did it have more impact on design or on operations?’
