SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section Presents:
Total Systems Approach to Flow Assurance in an Existing System
Presenter: Lynn Frostman, Baker Hughes
When: Tuesday, 18 March from 1100 to 1300 hours CDT
Where: Norris Conference Center • 816 Town & Country Street #210 • Houston, TX 77024
Registration Fee: SPE Member = USD 40, Nonmember = USD 50
This overview presentation will cover a holistic approach to analyzing and mitigating flow assurance concerns in existing fields. The program will consider an example offshore system from reservoir to sales point, and present a “Flow Assurance 101″ primer. Specific attention will be given to the inter-relationships of the flow assurance risks and the impact of mitigation strategies on the total system.

This applied technology workshop highlights state-of-the-art technologies and their impacting role on social responsibility strategies in extremely sensitive environments (ESE). This multidisciplinary workshop will deal with the most outstanding challenges and achievements in advanced Technology as they apply to Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Social Responsibility (HSSE SR). Social Responsibility (SR) is rapidly becoming a central part of O&G operations.
Organizations must understand and communicate SR risks to stakeholders early in the project cycle so that a foundation of trust and good communication is established with the often critical stakeholders affected by development in ESEs. Many O&G Operators have recently learned that HSSE SR issues need to be at the front of the planning train in order to establish a sustainable development plan.
This workshop intends to explore and discuss some of these key technologies, what has worked, what has not worked, and areas where future technological innovation is necessary to strengthen our social license to operate in Extremely Sensitive Environments (ESE). It will also provide an opportunity to share and learn from the field experiences of successful industry players.
Join Gene Kouba on 25 June for his web event that will discuss a modified two-parameter methodology in which the minimum droplet size that can be created from available energy along with the maximum droplet size that can survive in the flow are used to characterize the droplet size distribution.

SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section Special Event— Real-Time Data: Access, Analytics, and Decisions to Improve Automated Drilling Operations
When: Monday, 3 March from 1300–1700
Where: Omni Hotel, Ballrooms 1–4, Fort Worth, Texas
Note: To register for the Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section Special Event, you must first register for the 2014 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition.
Title: “Real-Time Data: Access, Analytics, and Decisions to Improve Automated Drilling Operations”
If we can: easily access reliable, standardized operational and control data in real-time at the wellsite; easily share data across disciplines and even among companies; shrink the learning curve by using analytics on real-time data to make decisions, could we automate and improve drilling operations?
Format: Presentations and panel debate moderated by Eric van Oort, B.J. Lancaster Professor in Petroleum Engineering, University of Texas.
