SPE Workshop: Performance and Design of Water Injectors Requiring Sand Control 4 - 6 Dec 2017 AT&T Hotel and Conference Center Austin, Texas, USA
  • Society of Petroleum Engineers

About the Workshop

This SPE workshop aims to discuss and share the latest understanding, field performance, best practices, and advances from the industry and academia on the critical role water and produced water injectors with sustained high rate and high ultimate volume play for the economic success of many deepwater developments around the world. Injectors with different sand control completions are being installed in unconsolidated and loosely consolidated sand reservoirs with mixed success. Problems with rapid loss of injectivity, premature injector failure, and out of zone injection or fracture containment have been reported. Within the industry, possible mechanisms of impairment and fluid containment and causes of injector failures with different solutions are being proposed and used.

This technical event will cover:

  • Design of field performance in the Gulf of Mexico and rest of the world
  • Water injection wells
  • Sand control completion selection and design for injectors
  • Flow Control Devices and Injectors Surveillance
  • Produced Water Reinjection
  • Geomechanics
  • Intervention and Reliability
  • Extensive discussions on Injection Well Operations: Start-up, Ramp-up, Shut down, and Re-start

Why Attend

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A and discussion.

Staged in an intimate setting, an SPE workshop brings together E&P professionals with common roles and challenges to share ideas that advance both technology and best practices. They provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Press is not invited to attend.

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies.
