Session One: Exploration and development; what is the next big thing?
Speaker(s) Marianne Bruvold, Spirit Energy; Sondre Krogh Johansen, NPD; Dr. Alexey Fadeev, Gazpromneft-Sakhalin;

The Barents Sea is petroleum region with a significant potential. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate have in the annual resource report estimated remaining undiscovered resources to be 4000 MSm3 o.e. on the Norwegian continental shelf, with the majority of this estimate existing in the Barents sea. Going forward exploration in this area is one of the very key subjects for sustainable and environmentally friendly oil and gas production in Europe. 

The northern regions of the NCS consist of a wide range of geological conditions including Karstified Carbonates, regional uplift and shallow reservoirs to mention a few. The existing geology drive the demand for technology solutions and play models. Significant efforts is already made in the region leading to the success stories of fields like Snøhvit, Norne, Alta/Gotha, Goliat, Johan Castberg, Wisting and Aasta Hansteen, however a very limited amount of well have been drilled and new areas has recently been opened for exploration.

The technical session in the workshop will focus on technology solutions and exploration strategies used in order to uncover the potential of the northern regions in a cost effective environment where operators now are focusing on making also smaller hydrocarbon discoveries profitable.

Session Three: Production and IOR Challenges
Speaker(s) Jens Petter Nørgård, Lundin Norway; Farokh Shoaei, Equinor; Kjetil Borgersen, Halliburton; Karl Ludvig Heskestad, SPE Regional Director;

In the Drilling and Well section of the workshop, we focus the special challenges that are related to drilling wells in the near arctic environment on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The combination of location dependent conditions, deep water, karstified formation and shallow reservoirs give the operators and service companies new challenges that need to be solved. Additionally, are there particular requirements that need to be considered regarding HSE and well control in this harsh and vulnerable area?

Two oil fields have already been developed and in the coming years several more fields will be set in productions.

What have we learnt from the wells already drilled that could be used to enhance the way we plan and execute the upcoming field development in a cost-efficient way?

  • How to drill wells in the near arctic environment safe and cost efficiently
  • New technology is required for optimal placement of wells in a demanding drilling area

Session Five: Scale is a never-ending struggle, or is it?
Session Chairpersons Ole Magnar Drønen
Speaker(s) Anthony F. Mitchell, Equinor; Marius Stamnes, Scale Protection; Steve Heath, Baker Hughes a GE Company;

Present production and future field developments in the north of Norway are predominantly based on subsea templates that are tied back to floating installations. The wells’ reservoir sections are often long horizontals, and in addition, future developments will see several multilateral wells being drilled. This cause challenges to scale management. Long flowlines from wellheads to topside limit sampling and cause difficulties to the interpretation of the scale status due to commingled flow in flowlines from several producing wells. These issues cause uncertainty in identifying which wells are scaling and to verify successful placement of scale inhibitors in the pay zones. Monitoring and prevention strategies will be vital to avoid costly scale removal operations in these areas. Short turnaround from sampling to delivery and accelerating new technology and workflows within scale management is believed to be the key to successful scale management.

The program committee invite you to submit a presentation proposal on new advancements of scale monitoring methods and tools, scale removal methods and tools, preventive tools and chemistry, and scale management strategies for subsea fields.
