    This presentation will cover following topics: Basic hydraulics, DRA basics, Case studies, and Subsea Injection equipment available.

    The injection of Drag Reducing Agents (DRA), is a valuable tool for pipeline operators to greatly increase the flexibility of a pipeline asset. Their value can be realized all across the pipeline lifecycle, as operational goals change with changing market conditions. DRAs, whose active ingredient is an ultra-high molecular weight polymer, are injected into pipeline fluids to reduce the level of turbulence occurring in the pipe. This effect is quantified by a calculated quantity termed drag reduction. The application of DRA allows operators to maximize their existing pipeline assets by increasing the pipeline flow rate, reducing operational pressures, minimizing operating expense, or a combination of these, all with little or no modification to the asset or other capital expenditure. As the operational goals of the pipeline operator change over the life of the asset, DRA can be applied to meet those changing goals almost effortlessly.

    In 2018, the U.S. DOE selected a site near Milford, Utah, for the FORGE laboratory. The location met the criteria of adequate and accessible subsurface temperature with benign seismicity and appropriate environmental attributes. Since its inception, multiple vertical monitoring wells -for geophone emplacement – have been drilled, along with a 65° lateral.

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s (U.S. DOE) Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) is a field laboratory for developing and testing new technologies for characterizing, creating, and sustaining Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) in a controlled environment.

    In 2018, the U.S. DOE selected a site near Milford, Utah, for the FORGE laboratory. The location met the criteria of adequate and accessible subsurface temperature with benign seismicity and appropriate environmental attributes. Since its inception, multiple vertical monitoring wells -for geophone emplacement – have been drilled, along with a 65° lateral.

    This inclined well, 16A(78)-32, drilled in late 2020, was stimulated in three stages near its toe during April 2022. A second inclined well will be drilled in early 2023 to penetrate microseismic clouds from these treatments. These three stages will test open hole versus cased-perforated completions, low viscosity versus “temperature-tolerant” higher viscosity fluids, temperature tolerant isolation and perforation technologies, and an assessment of the role of natural fractures during stimulation in crystalline formations. Areas of technology development are highlighted including cementing, isolation, treatment strategies, conductivity and connectivity development, and challenges related to conformance and immunity to undesirable seismicity.

    CCS is seen by many bodies such as the IEA and the IPCC as a one of the key enablers to decarbonising the economy. Transportation of CO2 is a key focal area in any CCS project but while dehydration of natural gas for transportation is well understood and regulated, the same cannot yet be said for CO2.

    CCS is seen by many bodies such as the IEA and the IPCC as a one of the key enablers to decarbonising the economy. Transportation of CO2 is a key focal area in any CCS project but while dehydration of natural gas for transportation is well understood and regulated, the same cannot yet be said for CO2. Dehydration specifications need to consider important project parameters such as ambient temperatures, CO2 pressures, contaminants, and materials of construction. Based on the selected specification, the most suitable method for implementing the dehydration should be selected, along with the optimum location of the dehydration equipment in the multi-stage pressure-boosting plant. These challenges and a methodology for overcoming them will be explored in this presentation.

    Many unique MPFM systems have been realized over the years, utilizing a wide variety of physics to interpret the flow rates and phase content of multiphase flows. In this webinar series, we categorize multiphase flow ‘sensing domains’. In part 1 of this series, we progressively discuss measurement physics within the electromagnetic sensing domain, advancing in frequency from steady-state electromagnetic phenomena to high frequency electromagnetic phenomena.

    Multiphase Flow Meters (MPFMs) have been in development since the 1960’s. Ideally, MPFM systems measure the phase-specific flow rates of arbitrary mixtures of oil, water, and gas from producing wells. Achieving continuous real-time well head production measurements from MPFM systems leads to a variety of production optimization and safety advantages.

    Successful geothermal reservoir exploration, characterization, and development requires a thorough understanding of the physical properties of reservoir rocks and their associated fracture systems.

    Presentation One
    Successful geothermal reservoir exploration, characterization, and development requires a thorough understanding of the physical properties of reservoir rocks and their associated fracture systems. Of particular importance is the reduction of uncertainty in the exploration phase. Geothermal resources have been recognized for some time as a possible significant source of energy but to date have seen marginal increases in their development and application. Much of this is attributed to the substantial upfront costs associated with geothermal projects coupled with a lack of reservoir characterization. While the resource potential is recognized, investors have been hesitant to proceed with these high risk, long return on investment (ROI) scenarios. While many cost reducing technologies are being developed in the geothermal industry right now,continued refinement and development of exploration workflows and their associated risk reduction will continue to increase investor confidence and support the full-scale growth of geothermal in the coming energy transition.

    A key step in the development of successful exploration workflows is the identification of the critical risk parameters inherent to that specific resource. For geothermal, these include but are not limited to temperature, porosity, permeability and fractures (density, orientation and connectivity). Core analysis, integrated with field, production, well logging/testing and seismic data will be essential in minimizing reservoir uncertainties and addressing these core risk parameters. In particular, integration of core and petro physical log analysis data to address regional to prospect level porosity-permeability relationships. Defining and characterizing this can elucidate the overall transmissivity of the geothermal reservoir, the inherent potential to store/transmit heat and thereby define its chance of success as a commercially viable economic prospect.

    Presentation Two
    Laboratory analysis of Rock and Fluids for Carbon Utilization and Storage pave the path to carbon neutrality through two aspects: first, extension of asset life through enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from depleted reservoirs; and second, safe and environmentally impactful carbon storage in both depleted reservoirs and/or existing aquifers. From the onset of any project, measurements are critical for the characterization of storage capacity, chemical alteration potential during injection, caprock integrity and containment, and conformance monitoring.

    For safe and environmentally impactful carbon injection and storage, which we will be focusing on the webinar, core analysis laboratories must study the pristine rock, CO2 interaction with target reservoirs, and sensitivity of caprock-to-CO2-rich-fluids, striving for new dynamic balance between maximum storage, injectivity and containment; all while maintaining public safety. These studies cover three main pillars: (1) Storage characterization which includes reservoir mapping, site characterization, porosity, salinity, and matrix chemistry; (2) Injectivity/CO2 exposure emphasizing reservoir injection rates which take into account CO2-Brine / CO2-Hydrocarbon and rock-CO2-rich fluid interactions, injection operation influence on stresses affecting both reservoir and caprock, and CO2-caprock integrity; and finally (3) Containment and conformance for long-term monitoring and mitigation of unexpected events.

    We will define laboratory’s role in CCUS projects as part of the unbreakable “Log (Seismic) – Laboratory – Modeling” value chain, discuss what differentiates a CO2-ready lab, and what new technologies must be put in service to achieve successful development and operations of carbon storage.

    Laboratory measurements provide invaluable insight into challenges of assessment and characterization of the current state of the reservoir; Further, laboratories help in understanding ‘what’s next?’, and are uniquely positioned to tackle the challenges yet to manifest themselves during the carbon business lifecycle.
