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


Wednesday, November 08

11:00 - 12:30
Session 5: Maximising Recovery
Session Chairpersons Bogdan Bocaneala, OPECS; Lars van Zelm, Wintershall NL

Stimulation can be used in many different ways to maximize recovery in both new developments and existing fields. Case studies in this session will look at cases of hydraulic fracturing in situations that are not “tight” in the classical sense, but where stimulation was able to improve well and project economics by accelerating production or increasing reserves. This session will also include cases of using stimulation in mature fields to access bypassed reserves in tight formations, especially offshore.


Session talks to include:

"Stimulation at Gulfaks", Statoil
"Stimulation Potential in Mature North Sea Oil Fields", Fenix Consulting Delft

"New stimulation projects offshore Norway", AkerBP
