8.00AM REGISTRATION

8:45AM OPENING REMARKS & CHAIRMAN INTRODUCTION

Junior Nsiah, Managing Director, Global Strategic Networks 
Paul Gould, Principal Consultant, Imperative Insights 

KEYNOTE: REASSESS YOUR CHEMICAL OPERATIONS

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES & CHEMISTRIES TO MINIMIZE WELL/TUBING FAILURES > IMPROVE WELL PRODUCTION & OPTIMIZE SPEND

In the chemicals world, if you are not constantly improving, constantly adjusting, you are not being efficient. Wells are always changing, and production is always in decline. And if you’re not optimizing that well along with the production decline, then you are not efficient. For chemical programs to be efficient, they have to continuously be assessed and reassessed to make sure the treatment that was designed and the monitoring that was put in place is actually working. Taking the chemistry and getting the results you want is the ultimate end goal – but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done in some shale plays where chemicals automation & monitoring need to be applied better.

9:00AM - 9:40AM LEARN HOW TO PROPERLY ASSESS YOUR CHEMICAL PROGRAM & ENSURE IT IS OPTIMIZED FROM A COST AND PERFORMANCE POINT OF VIEW

  • Find out KPIs/measuring points that are used to denote which parts of the chemical strategy are optimised and where efficiencies can be found

  • Sharing data on the operator’s chemical program, including economics, rate of return and any efficiencies/inefficiencies that have been found

  • Understand the value of a collaborative E&P/Vendor relationship to manage chemical program cost and optimize value

  • Sharing details on E&P criteria when determining the production chemical strategy and how the dollar spend was justified

  • What lessons were learned and where are the greatest opportunities on the application side

KEYNOTE E&P AND VENDOR PANEL

With E&P priorities remaining unchanged and reducing cost as much as possible remaining a high priority, this keynote panel discussion will see production chemical experts carrying out an onstage assessment of the economics of chemicals, the value generated and how much more oil can be generated without increasing spend.

NEW, TECHNICALLY ADVANCED & COST-EFFECTIVE CHEMICAL PROGRAMS
 

9.40AM - 10:20AM OPTIMIZING CHEMICAL SPEND & VALUE GENERATED

  • Learn how the experts establish whether they are getting the best value at each well 

  • RFPs > How can E&Ps try and get better cost per unit on any chemical

  • Sharing data on which chemicals are proving most effective in reducing failures and increasing recovery

  • Identifying where opportunities might exist to increase volumes of oil generated

  • Sharing practical recommendations on how to keep cost as low as possible without compromising protection on wells

10.20AM NETWORKING REFRESHMENT BREAK

OPERATOR-LED WINNING STRATEGIES FOR TREATING

CORROSION & H2S

CORROSION MANAGEMENT

"The metallurgy costs have gone up in the last year, almost a 300% increase. So it becomes a huge issue when you have hundreds of wells. And when you only have two year run time on those."

 

10.50AM - 11.30AM HOW E&P COMPANIES ARE SOLVING CORROSION ISSUES?:

DEEP-DIVE INTO OPERATOR-LED STRATEGIES FOR TREATING MICROBIAL CORROSION AND CORROSION IN TUBING

  • This section of presentation takes a deep dive into the perennial challenge of bacterial and microbial corrosion, with speakers from leading operating companies answer your most asked questions through data and practical experience, including:

  • Are operators seeing corrosion at certain downhole temperatures?

  • When are operators starting to see corrosion issues – after 4months? After a year?

  • What tools were adopted to detect/monitor corrosion

  • What type of chemicals are being used to treat corrosion

  • Sharing experience reports on improvements that have been seen in the wellbore after treatment was initiated

E&P WINS FOR TREATING H2S

 

11:30AM - 12:10PM WINNING STRATEGIES THAT ARE PROVING EFFECTIVE FOR TREATMENT OF H2S

  • Find out how producers identify the source of H2S

  • Is it information gathered from the wellbore or is it self-induced?

  • Learn how E&P companies are using equipment, telemetry and/or automation to efficiently treat H2S

  • Sharing lessons learned and showcasing some of the wins as far as what was found to be the most effective strategy for treating H2S

TECHNOLOGY DEEP DIVE

CUSTOMER CASE STUDIES ON THE LATEST CHEMISTRIES & TECHNOLOGIES

QUICK FIRE VENDOR CASE STUDIES
