With production in the Permian increasing by 93,000 barrels a day year on year and accounting for 68% of overall production in Texas, the basin is without doubt re-establishing itself as one of the most prolific areas within North America for oil & gas exploration. While high liquid rich reserves, horizontal drilling and completions techniques have played a key part in this success, the continued high ultimate recoveries being seen in the basin by and large are driven by the selection and execution of the correct artificial lift and production optimization techniques.
OPTIMIZING ARTIFICIAL LIFT AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES IN HORIZONTAL WELLS
Billions of dollars are spent yearly on artificial lift technologies and tackling obstructive scale and deposition within the wellbore, so the successful application of chemical treatment programs and mitigation of scale, ashphaltene, paraffin and corrosion has become paramount to reducing well failures within the field and reducing costly workover rates.
We are therefore very pleased to announce the Permian Artificial Lift & Production Optimization Congress 2014 held on the 26th and 27th of March at The Westin Galleria Houston, Texas ; the first congress designed specifically for production professionals in the Permian. The congress will focus heavily on the assessment and application of artificial lift optimization, also examining tried and tested chemical treatment programs as well as hearing case studies from leading E&P companies on how to optimize gas separation technologies, sand management and saltwater disposal.
DAY 1: ARTIFICIAL LIFT AND CHEMICAL TREATMENTS
Day one will focus on identification and application of the correct individual artificial lift technologies for different formations including rod pumps, gas lift, and ESP and jet pumps. Optimal chemical treatment methodologies to handle H2S will then be investigated based on case studies showing how operators have successfully managed paraffin, scale and corrosion to minimize well failures. Best practices for gas separation downhole will also be examined.
DAY 2: SAND MANAGEMENT, AUTOMATION, EOR, GAS HANDLING AND WATER MANAGEMENT
Day two will start with a presentation examining time and cost-effective intervention practices to minimize downtime, reduce workover rates and maximize return on capital. Speakers will then go on to deliver presentations on sand management, water and CO2 flooding and ensuring electricity supply is available for production as well as examining the effectiveness of automation software for monitoring wells and reducing failures. Optimum methods for well spacing, gas and water handling will also be discussed.
