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

Seismos and C&J Energy Services: Innovation Through Collaboration

August 29, 2019
Sponsored by: Seismos and C&J Energy Services
For the first time, a technology company and an oilfield services company have joined forces to deliver an unprecedented level of reservoir understanding to shale operations. Using affordable, noninvasive solutions, this cutting-edge collaboration delivers measurable improvements in fracturing plans, field development and operational efficiency. C&J’s LateralScience℠ method uses common drilling data to optimize the well-completion design based on changes in rock hardness along the wellbore. The Seismos-Frac™ solution uses borehole pressure-wave reflections to evaluate the geometry and connectivity of the fracture network. Not only does this comprehensive solution provide superior reservoir intelligence, but it’s also designed to ensure that this intelligence is leveraged completely and executed flawlessly in the field. This gives operators powerful tools to address important challenges – such as avoiding frac hits, optimizing fracture treatment and avoiding screenouts. Real-time results are delivered in the field to maximize operational impact.
