Smart Production Monitoring Enabled by Virtual Well Metering0.1 credits offered
Virtual Metering technology has been used in offshore oil and gas wells for over a decade with great success. They provide a cost-effective, yet reliable solution to monitor production continuously. They also serve as ready back-up to “physical” multiphase meters, which are both expensive and less reliable.

Understanding & Defining Well Barriers for Well Integrity0.15 credits offered
The terms "Well Barrier" and "2 Independent Barriers" are used throughout well integrity management literature. However, there are misunderstandings as to what truly constitutes a Barrier and what are 2 Barriers, as opposed to 2 isolations or redundancy. Physical Barriers, their construction or installation and verification against performance criteria are the foundation of establishing and maintaining a well's integrity. Understanding how a system of components (barrier elements) is used to establish a barrier can become complex especially when there are multiple sources each requiring their own containment. This webinar will discuss and review fundamental concepts, to bring some clarity to these essential topics.

Novel Approaches for Solving Flow Assurance Problems0.1 credits offered
When developing new fields, O&G companies may face many challenges regarding production and flow assurance. It is common that further investigation and R&D efforts are required and, as a result of this activity, new models to represent those new problems are developed. A natural way forward after experimental investigation and modeling activities is the implementation of such models in simulators, to ultimately be used for design and troubleshooting. However, commercial tools are generally “black-boxes” and do not provide the necessary customization flexibility to the end user, which prohibits them from testing new models within a reasonable timeframe.
