Pitfalls in HPHT Completion Design and Planning
August 19, 2014 at 9:30 AM EDT, 8:30 AM CDT, 7:30 AM MDT, 6:30 AM PDT
(60 minutes)
 
This webinar will be about the pitfalls, problems, and lessons learned encountered in planning an extra-HPHT completion.

Examples of pitfalls encountered in completion design will include tubing design & qualification issues, perforating challenges, limited downhole production equipment, vendor selection & manufacturing challenges, and lack of service tools. The webinar will focus on unexpected problems encountered during design and planning, and not as much on known technology gaps.

(75 minutes)
 
You may not be able to make it to the presentation in Houston, TX, but there's no reason we can't bring it to you. By registering for this session, you can listen to the speaker live and watch the slides broadcast from the presentation without leaving your desk...all for FREE.

The challenges and opportunities facing Operators planning major capital projects (MCPs) in today’s oil and gas environment include turnkey contracting strategies, global supply chains, evolving technologies, increasingly stringent regulations, competition for scarce resources, and inflationary pressures, to name but a few.

By way of example, this presentation will dwell on the Execute phase activities of an offshore MCP, from design and engineering through to construction, installation, hookup and commissioning.

Introduction to Integrated Production Modeling and Case Histories
September 24, 2014 at 9:30 AM EDT, 8:30 AM CDT, 7:30 AM MDT, 6:30 AM PDT
(90 minutes)
 
The main objectives of modeling flows of production fluids in wells, pipelines and risers are: to predict the pressure drops, the phase distributions, the potential for unsteady phase delivery (commonly referred to as slugging) and the thermal characteristics of the system.

These objectives arise from the requirement to design production systems which avoid the flow assurance problems, bottlenecking, increased pressure restriction problems and ensure delivery of production targets.

The key point from Integrated Production Modeling is that we eliminate fix boundary conditions as we can from the interconnected components, e.g. we don’t control by a fix rate, a fixed BHP, or fixed THP, but through a common sink constraint and other boundary conditions are dynamically calculated.

This webinar will provide an Introduction to Integrated Production Modeling.
How to Strengthen and Stabilize the Wellbore During Drilling Operations - AM
September 30, 2014 at 9:00 AM EDT, 8:00 AM CDT, 7:00 AM MDT, 6:00 AM PDT
(60 minutes)
 
Loss of drilling fluid to the formation is one of the costliest problems that drillers face during well construction. Until recently, the primary method used to control losses involved incorporating materials in the fluid or in pills to bridge or plug the loss zone. Current technology enables a more comprehensive -- and more effective -- approach that includes this remediative method but gives greater emphasis to preventing lost circulation.
How to Strengthen and Stabilize the Wellbore During Drilling Operations - PM

Reservoir Surveillance of Mature Floods Using Streamline-based Workflows
October 2, 2014 at 9:30 AM EDT, 8:30 AM CDT, 7:30 AM MDT, 6:30 AM PDT
(90 minutes)
 
Streamline-based flow simulation has traditionally been viewed as a modeling approach that is complementary to other flow simulation methods. However, streamlines are also ideally suited to the much more common application of reservoir surveillance of mature floods. Because the streamline paths themselves yield well drainage regions and well-pair allocation factors, engineers can reduce complex production data down to the pattern level in a robust and physics-based manner.

This webinar will begin with some fundamentals of streamline simulation and surveillance. We will also discuss the minimum amount of data needed to build a surveillance model and how to interpret novel streamline-based surveillance metrics.
CSB report on Deepwater Horizon BOP
October 7, 2014 at 9:30 AM EDT, 8:30 AM CDT, 7:30 AM MDT, 6:30 AM PDT
(90 minutes)
 
On June 5, 2014, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) released its report on the Deepwater Horizon blowout preventer. Failures in this last physical barrier preceded the Macondo explosion, fire, and ensuing oil spill. This webinar will discuss analyses contained within the technical appendices that accompanied the CSB report whereby the CSB had access to all three phases of the BOP failure analysis data. The webinar discussion will include how the incident unfolded, causes, contributing factors, and lessons to be learned.
HSSE-SR: A Chemical Risk Prioritization Scoring Process for Exploration and Production Industry
October 7, 2014 at 1:00 PM EDT, 12:00 PM CDT, 11:00 AM MDT, 10:00 AM PDT
(90 minutes)

The oil and gas industry has been under increased scrutiny for its use of chemicals during exploration and production. Public perception is that hydraulic fracturing leads to chemical exposure and potential effects on human health and the environment. Some state agencies have adopted rules that call for the disclosure of chemicals intentionally added to hydraulic fracturing fluids.

The presentation will illustrate Noble’s process and discuss the challenges that they faced in developing the program.
