  • The Use of Chemical-in-Gas Dispersions for Well Productivity and Recovery Enhancement

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 12/08/2020 at 9:30 AM (EST)

    This webinar presents an overview of the use and potential of chemical-in-gas stable dispersions for well stimulation and enhanced oil recovery with different field case studies, and opens discussion to future potential applications.

    Conventional liquid-based stimulation treatments have shown several limitations such as low treatment penetrations and short durability, among others. To overcome these shortcomings, a novel well productivity and recovery enhancement technology has been proposed where the carrying fluid is gas instead of liquid.

    Several successful field applications for condensate banking removal, asphaltenes dissolution, and gas injection conformance, demonstrate the advantages of the technique with proven benefits. The use of chemical-in-gas dispersions enhances the treatment’s distribution and increases the stimulated rock volume due to better conformance and gas diffusion effects. It maximizes durability through tunable adsorption, improves the well’s flowback performance and reduces the risk of generating liquid-induced damage.

    This webinar presents an overview of the use and potential of chemical-in-gas stable dispersions for well stimulation and enhanced oil recovery with different field case studies, and opens discussion to future potential applications.

  • 360° Engineering Analysis for Managing Well Integrity

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 11/15/2016

    Effectively managing well barriers and maintaining well integrity within limits is challenging for aging wells and have a major influence on maximizing the life of wells and reducing operational costs. This is critical not only for the design phase of the well but also for the operational phase.

    Effectively managing well barriers and maintaining well integrity within limits is challenging for aging wells and have a major influence on maximizing the life of wells and reducing operational costs. This is critical not only for the design phase of the well but also for the operational phase. As more real-time downhole data becomes available, the efficient use of quality data for a more comprehensive engineering analysis has become very critical. Identifying the well integrity risks early can lead to better solutions for reducing associated costs and taking remedial action. The objective of this session focusing on well integrity is to highlight the application of comprehensive engineering analyses to improve the overall life of assets and maximize returns. The main well integrity issues covered under this session are: mechanical casing wear, wellhead movement, annular pressure buildup, corrosion of tubing / casing and erosion of tubing / casing.

    In 2014, the US Department of the Interior's Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) approached SPE regarding a proposed collaboration opportunity to develop a voluntary industrywide safety data sharing framework. The goal of this framework was envisioned as a resource to enhance the industry's ability to capture and share key learnings from significant events with the objective of identifying and mitigating potential high-consequence risks. A related objective was to bring government and industry together to make a safe industry safer, and to enhance public confidence in the industry.

    The discussions, expert opinions, and suggestions offered by the group of safety-data management SMEs during the Summit are captured in a Technical Report that was approved by the SPE Board of Directors in September 2016 and is now posted on the SPE web site. The purpose of this panel discussion is to present highlights from the Summit and the resulting Technical Report, as well as provide an opportunity for SPE members, both attending the meeting in person and virtually, to ask questions of the panelists.

    Sustainable safety performance is the key to business success in a changing business environment. In order to address a lack of well-defined safety standards, especially in the crude business, Shell Trading (STUSCO) launched its Road Transport (RT) Safety program to drive a culture change in the hauler's organization and set minimum Road Transport HSSE standards as part of our working partnership.

    The primary key to success is to address driver behavioral elements and organizational culture to emphasize that safety is not just a slogan, but a core value that is delivered from the top down. The CEO and Director levels of our hauler's organization must own the safety program and demonstrate visible and tangible HSSE leadership to drive the change in safety culture and HSSE performance. Individual road transport KPIs are developed and agreed upon with haulers to ensure performance is monitored and kept on track.

    Shell Trading's RT HSSE program sets minimum standards for equipment and driver training that are above industry standards or Federal US DOT requirements. These include items like a robust In-Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS), roll stability control, defensive driver and fatigue awareness training. Compliance with our standards are checked via a system of hauler audits and field assurance by Shell staff and a selected group of contractors.
