World Oil webcasts and webinars are in-depth presentations on oil and gas applications, trends and technology. Moderated by a World Oil editor and including technical experts, these events are focused on providing qualified engineers and professionals in the upstream oil and gas industry with the latest information pertaining to offshore and onshore exploring, drilling, completions and production.
The Pioneers of the Electric Frac Revolution: Why every E&P should use Clean Fleet®
July 11, 2019
Sponsored by: U.S. Well Services
In 2014, U.S. Well Services (USWS) took the concept of utilizing clean-burning natural gas to fuel electric hydraulic fracturing fleets by developing and deploying their multi-patented Clean Fleet®. To date, they have completed more than 8,000 stages using their Clean Fleet® technology in multiple oil and gas basins throughout the United States. The use of natural gas turbine generators, paired with electric motor driven pumps, blenders and other auxiliary frac equipment, provide numerous advantages over the use of conventional diesel frac fleets. Such advantages include significant fuel cost savings, improved operational efficiencies, reduced repair & maintenance downtime, reduced noise pollution, as well as environmental benefits.
Smartengo Running Expert: Deploying Digital on the Rig
June 26, 2019
Sponsored by: Vallourec
Smartengo Running Expert is Vallourec’s new digital solution designed to enhance running operations on the rig and capture the value of in-field data. Building upon individual pipe traceability, the solution allows you to manage pre-tally, to supervise running operations and to track rig returns. In addition, by scanning the pipe as it is run-in-hole, it can generate a real-time digital well construction report with easy to access running performance analytics. What advantages does this bring? Fábio Yoshida and Calum Thomson will present the results of recent projects in the field which demonstrate how Smartengo Running Expert can improve operational efficiency, save rig time and accelerate time to first oil. The digitalization of the well construction report is the first step towards generating a digital twin of the well, to enhance asset management and ensure well integrity.
Frac-Hit Mitigation: Best practices for understanding and managing parent-child well interactions
June 19, 2019
Sponsored by: Drill2Frac, OptaSense, Reveal Energy Services
There are numerous frac-hit mitigation strategies, including shut-ins; temporary abandonments; frac-and-flow; small pre-loads; high-rate, water-defensive fracs; and refracs. It’s important to note that there are innovative completion techniques to help with understanding and determining the optimal mitigation technique. In this webcast we will see how three completions technologies help you understand parent-child interaction and mitigate/avoid frac hits before completing your wells. We will learn how existing data can provide a map of well signatures can be used to identify parent fractures in child wells. We will also see how analyzing pressure, acoustic and temperature variation data in real time can warn you before a frac hit occurs.

Current Trends in Produced Water Management
May 02, 2019
Sponsored by: Hydrozonix
Join Mark Patton, President and CEO of Hydrozonix, as he reviews current trends in produced water management and shows how they are influencing your business. During this exclusive webcast, Mark will assess the future direction of the produced water market and deliver an update on SWD wells and seismicity and how related concerns are impacting disposal capacity and driving produced water recycling. The webcast will also evaluate completion method trends and show how these have increased the opportunity to use produced water as a completion fluid. Real-world case studies will also be shared to demonstrate low cost produced water recycling/reuse scenarios.
