SPE Workshop: North Sea and Europe Area Stimulation 7 - 8 Nov 2017 The Hague , The Netherlands


Tuesday, November 07

13:00 - 14:30
Session 2: Stimulation in Oil Fields
Session Chairpersons Bjorn Berntsen, Faroe Petroleum; Mark Norris, Schlumberger

Chalk stimulation is the most mature of all stimulation practices in the North Sea. This session will review field stimulation techniques and results from major chalk reservoirs. Different stimulation strategies have been applied, using both acid and proppant. In this session, we will focus on case histories of all these different approaches.

Field design and operational issues will be discussed along with well productivity results. The discussion will also review how each operator determines the “best” stimulation technique for their reservoir. Topics in this session will include:

  • Acid stimulation in multi-lateral wells with advanced completions
  • Re-stimulation challenges in horizontal wells
  • Updates on chalk stimulation from Denmark and Norway


Session talks include:

"Stimulation Past and Present for Valhall", Aker BP 
"Multi-fracced horizontal well", Wintershall NL
"Brown Field Development in Romania using Stimulation", Expert Petroleum Romania
