SPE Workshop: High Pressure/High Temperature - Delivering Cost Effective and Optimised Wells 31 Jul - 1 Aug 2018 DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

In the recent volatile oil price environment, HPHT wells were considered luxury investments for worldwide industry players that were once champions in delivering efficient HPHT well operations.  The situation has now evolved beyond the question of how cheap this type of well can be delivered but towards how many less risky and less complicated wells can be delivered in place of one HPHT well. Since the onset of lower oil prices, major players have identified USD80/bbl as the threshold global oil price that will trigger further HPHT investment.  Less effort was made, however, to find the turning point in making HPHT well opportunities as lucrative as those of less challenging wells. This workshop aims to highlight and advance the themes of collaborative optimisation and cost-effectiveness to progress the viability and deliver best-in-class HPHT wells.



This workshop will provide a platform for E&P industry practitioners of various disciplines, service providers, regulators as well as academicians and researchers to interact, discuss and share concerns and experiences with respect to delivering HPHT wells in a volatile oil price environment and to uphold good practices in operations and HSE, while increased efforts are also focused on optimising the cost of HPHT wells.
