Good planning is of prime importance before drilling a well but poses fundamental challenges. Numerous data offsets need to be collected, verified, and studied to understand the challenges of drilling the well to seamlessly overcome any expected and unexpected problems. Moreover, managing well planning and execution during the pandemic is another challenge that needs to be addressed, managed, and controlled to avoid unforeseen events. Fundamentally, if we are planning to intervene in mature field operations, other precautions should be taken to deal with depleted reservoirs, corroded completion strings, and old wellheads and pipelines.
In this session, we will study different types of drilling operations, contracts, planning in mature fields, batch drilling applications, addressing hole stability, and shale inhibition of drilling fluids. At the end of the session, we will use all this information to plan for the effective management of the well, especially during the pandemic, to ensure a successful operation.

Technological advancements contribute to the production of more innovative and efficient oil and gas tools and equipment. These developments are also fueled by operational and financial requirements in different organisations, and the industry, at large. Recently, advancements were made in downhole tools and rig design, to support ongoing operations and ensure their continuity. The new designs and procedures focus on improving safety, efficiency, and reliability. Other enhancements have resulted in beneficial applications in managed pressure drilling and underbalanced drilling technology.
The deployment of new technologies is essential to sustain businesses and mitigate technical challenges especially with the existing financial challenges in the market. It is also advantageous for companies to leverage their commercial activities and resources in such environments and optimise their expenditure and outgoing costs.

Digitalisation has become one of the most frequently used words in our industry over the last couple of years. The current global environment with COVID-19 and low commodity prices has significantly accelerated the focus on digitalisation as a mechanism to enable more remote operations and to drive down operating costs. These trends were enabled by technology innovation which significantly drove down the cost of sensors, data transfer and storage, and computing power. The cost of sensors today is a third of what it was 10 years ago, storing data in the cloud is 10 times cheaper than having it stored on-site, artificial intelligence is now found even in our homes and mobile phones. This is only the beginning—the digital story will continue to be written over many years to come.
In this session, we will go through the framework that used to organise a model of digital initiatives. This initiative is an analogy to the fourth industrial revolution we are currently experiencing and the rapid use of sensors, automation, and artificial intelligence. This initiative consists of 4 focus areas—Well Construction 4.0, Reservoir and Production 4.0, Subsurface 4.0, and Enterprise 4.0. This initiative aims to transform the way we work, to make a quantum leap in productivity both for company as well as others by leveraging digital technologies like advanced sensors, artificial intelligence, and cloud to drive automation, enable virtual remote operations, and enhance connectivity by connecting people, workflows, and equipment across the company and with third parties.

Through this session, several drilling and well completions points are going to be addressed, such as selection of drilling and completion fluids. The fluids must be designed to do no harm to the formation. Moreover, well control, HSE considerations while drilling. Additionally, well completion, an optimised completion design can result in better production rates and overall, well performance.
Additionally, gas control slurry for cementing operations is going to be discussed: controlling gas migration following the cementing operation, which arises by percolation through the thickening cement, when it is neither truly a slurry nor truly solid. With the rising level of challenges encountered during the drilling and production of a well, the formation damage challenges will be addressed.

The study, review, and discussion of case studies enables oil and gas professionals to expand their knowledge and understanding of best practices, processes, challenges, solutions, alternatives, etc. which they have not yet experienced within their company operations or which may be different to those already in operation. This process of knowledge and experience sharing is critical for the continuous professional development and growth of the industry workforce and, thus, the industry itself.
In this session, key focal points will include new and untested technologies, cost optimisation, and handling complex parameters in design, execution, and operations. Speakers will share experiences gained from bits applications and the applications of well control through MPD while tripping. They will also discuss their experiences in the optimisation of well completions for unconventional reservoirs and casing drilling.
