SPE Thermal Well Integrity and Design Symposium 27 - 29 Nov 2018 Fairmont Banff Springs Banff, Alberta, Canada

Schedule

Monday, November 26

08:00 - 17:00
Training Course: Thermal-Hydraulics Design and Optimization
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Mazda Irani

This one-day course is an introduction to gas-liquid flow patterns in horizontal pipes for complex case of steam at saturated condition at injector; gas-lifting at producers and steam hammer envelopes are discussed. Different two-phase flow mechanistic pattern maps such as Taitel–Dukler (1976) and Kattan–Thome–Favrat (1998) models and empirical methods such as Beggs and Brill will be discussed.

Topics Include:

  • Gas-liquid flow patterns
  • Introduction to Steam Hammer
  • Liquid Pool modeling
  • Liner-Deployed FCDs modeling
  • Analytical modeling of steam circulation

Training Course: Considerations for Thermal Well Design
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Dr. Trent Kaiser; Mark Chartier

Tubular structures in thermal applications are subject to unique design challenges that cannot be addressed with conventional methods. In conventional design, the structure “fails” when thermally induced loads yield the pipe, but thermal wells often must operate under such conditions and industry experience demonstrates that wells can do so reliably. Designing a structure that remains stable requires knowledge of strain-based design: the distinction between strength and stiffness, the effects of variability in strength and stiffness, load path dependencies, post-yield material behavior, and strain localization. Collateral considerations for resistance to environmental effects, geomechanical loads and production management can also challenge intuition developed in conventional well design. In this course, participants will learn to “think strain, not stress” for well structure design and gain exposure to other aspects of thermal well design.
