  • NatureWorks Expert Hour -- Degradable Ingeo PLA diverters for increasing well production at downhole temperatures from 120°F to 300°F

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Content for this webinar is provided by NatureWorks. By registering, your contact information will be shared with the sponsor.

    The use of Ingeo™ polylactide (PLA) biopolymers for fluid diversion and other downhole fluid management applications for increasing well productivity is longstanding. New developments in these degradable biopolymers introduce faster degradation rates appropriate for low temperature wells down to 120°F. This webinar will cover PLA’s hydrolysis behavior and explain in detail how the rate of degradation can be tuned for applications requiring fast degradation at low temperatures (120-140°F) thru applications desiring slow degradation at high temperatures (~300°F). We’ll also review how different degradable biopolymer shapes including particulates, film, fiber, and molded articles lead to a wide range of end uses and performance attributes downhole.

  • Mitigate Pore Pressure and Frac Gradient Window Uncertainty Using Intelligent Managed Pressure Drilling Systems

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/27/2019

    Pore Pressure Uncertainty is one of the biggest challenges faced by drilling companies today. This webinar will go through the concept of an intelligent MPD system and how this has been implemented to assess the formation pressure limits and mitigate drilling hazards.

    Pore Pressure Uncertainty is one of the biggest challenges faced by drilling companies today. Despite the great advancements in the generation of new models to predict the mud weight window, pressure uncertainty  still represents a significant percentage in the total amount of nonproductive time in drilling operations. The implementation of intelligent Managed Pressure Drilling systems has proven to be an effective instrument reducing this nonproductive time by assessing the pore pressure limits while drilling and by minimizing the consequences of encountering abnormal pore pressure or unexpected downhole fluid losses by allowing a quick response to this events detecting and automatically adjusting bottomhole pressure. This webinar will go through the concept of an intelligent MPD system and how this has been implemented to assess the formation pressure limits and mitigate drilling hazards.

    Carlos Iturrios

    Mr. Iturrios has more than 11 years of progressive Oilfield experience in Managed Pressure Drilling Operations (including CBHP, PMCD, nitrified mud, foam drilling, etc.) designing and executing with single-phase and two-phase fluids, nitrogen injection through drill pipe and concentric casing, in HPHT wells, LPHT wells and high pressure gas wells. His oilfield career started as MPD Field Engineer working for Schlumberger in projects in Mexico and Latin America and afterwards moving to Weatherford in the Middle East. He is currently the GeoZone Technical Manager for MPD Operations for Weatherford.

  • An Open Approach to Drilling Systems Automation

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/21/2019

    This presentation describes the development of a well-site automation system consisting of an open data aggregator, with networked surface and downhole sensors and real-time applications for process monitoring, advice and control.

    The promise of drilling systems automation is to increase well construction efficiency, delivering quality wells in a safe, reliable and predictable manner. This promise is achieved in part by creating a digital infrastructure that extends vertically from the drill bit to the remote enterprise, and horizontally from exploration to production. Critical to the success of automation is the unimpeded flow of quality data through this infrastructure. This presentation describes the development of a well-site automation system consisting of an open data aggregator, with networked surface and downhole sensors and real-time applications for process monitoring, advice and control.

  • CCS and Mid-century Strategies for the Energy Transition

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/19/2019

    Dozens of leading studies (IPCC, governments, think tanks, NGOs) analyze what needs to be done to manage climate change risk and limit global temperature rise to 2C or 1.5C by 2050. ERM has reviewed a range of these studies and found that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) arises in all of them as a key response option necessary to achieve the outcome. ERM will summarize the energy transition pathways suggested by such studies, highlight the role of CCS in them and contrast that outlook with the status of CCS today.
