A Paradigm Shift to Real-Time, Data-Driven Frac Completions

October 08, 2019
Sponsored by: Drill2Frac, Corva, Apex
To succeed in today’s fast-paced and constantly evolving economic environment, oil & gas companies must extract maximum insight from scattered, multidisciplinary datasets in order to optimize capital deployment for new wells and maximize production. This presentation will unveil a new oil & gas data science partnership that creates a major change for D&C optimization, enabling operators to harness historical and real-time data to reduce costs and improve well economics. The completion optimization model leverages standard drilling data and interpretations to assess rock properties and the risk of frac hits to offset wells. This enables completion designs to be rapidly tailored to the reservoir for every well. Real-time data analytics are leveraged during fracture operations to precisely verify stage placement and maximize pumping time effectiveness. Post-completion KPIs are then used as inputs to calibrate fracture and reservoir models, creating a feedback loop of continuous improvement.

Improving Deepwater MPD Performance with Active Wellbore Sealing

September 24, 2019
Sponsored by: AFGlobal, Noble Drilling Services
Sealing and diverting annular returns is critical to managed pressure drilling (MPD) operations. Traditional rotating control device (RCD) technology and deployment methodology was not designed for the challenges of deepwater. This webcast will discuss how the innovative design of an active control wellbore sealing device eliminates major sources of wear, maintenance, and risk for these challenging environments. This webcast will address how the technology is evolving to greatly improve economics and the overall application of MPD. Key highlights from the system’s testing and application to enable seal condition monitoring and seal life optimization will be discussed.

Visual Asset Performance Management by AVEVA: Balance risk and maximize value across the asset lifecycle

September 10, 2019
Sponsored by: AVEVA
Learn how a large oil and gas company was able to save up to 60% of their time in planning and executing a Risk-Based Inspection program to address Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI). In doing so, they increased worker productivity, reduced exposure to safety risks and decreased production downtime due to pipe failures. In this webinar, you'll learn how Visual APM is delivering increased value including: -Number of site visits reduced by up to 2/3 -Time spent in the planning process reduced by up to 60% -Improve quality of the planning -Eliminated need to manually log results into office PC -Increased accuracy of data acquired in the field -Reduce use manual mark-up (ISO drawings) -Increase reporting capabilities
