DAY TWO | WEDNESDAY APRIL 5, 2023

FOCUS > CASE STUDIES, NEW CHEMISTRIES AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR TREATING SCALE, IRON SULFIDE AND PARAFFIN

PLUS: TECHNICAL PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSIONS ON WATER MANAGEMENT, DATA MANAGEMENT AUTOMATION AND DIGITALIZATION

8:00AM REGISTRATION & NETWORKING REFRESHMENTS

8:50AM OPENING REMARKS

WATER INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT 

"Nobody accounted for managing an entire water infrastructure system. That is a huge problem"

9:00AM - 9:30AM HOW TO CHEMICALLY TREAT WATER & REMOVE SUSPENDED SOLIDS FROM WATER VENDOR-LED PRESENTATION

  • Hear an update on how operators are recycling water these days and what type of chemicals are they targeting

  • Determining the best way of treating water and solids – is at wellhead or tank battery or in SWD pipelines?

  • Debating if it is better to treat individual single wells for all those solids or treat the SWD line

9.30AM - 10:00AM WATER HANDLING & SALTWATER WATER DISPOSAL

  • Quantifying the costs and risk associated with saltwater disposal

  • Assessing the optimal methods for managing the risk of transfer lines getting plugged?

  • What are some of the tools available, including products and mechanical separations, to manage water transfer effectively

  • How can we handle solids in multiple SWD lines

PANEL DISCUSSION

10.00AM - 10:30AM HOW TO HAVE BETTER INJECTIVITY & LESS WATER TRANSFER ISSUES

  • This audience discussion sees practical solutions being shared on how to have better injectivity and less water transfer issues.

10.30AM - MORNING NETWORKING BREAK

TREATMENT FOR SCALE, IRON SULPHIDE & PARAFFIN

SCALE MANAGEMENT - E&P AND VENDOR PANEL

11:00AM - 11:40AM HOW CAN E&Ps DEAL WITH & TREAT SCALE AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

  • Best practices to inject the right dosage of scale squeezers at the right time to prevent issues

  • Find out how to treat the well and/or add more chemical additives to the stimulation process to overcome production issues

  • Real results on how new and improved chemicals and application strategies have reduced scale in flowlines

IRON SULFIDE - E&P CASE STUDY PRESENTATION

11:40AM - 12:20PM ESTABLISHING THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO MANAGE IRON SULFIDE IN WATER

  • Measures that can be taken to avoid industry fatalities resulting from having iron sulfide in the water system

  • Process designs to eliminate plugging of injection wells

  • Cost effective chemicals that are delivering high performance and long-term results at the best price

  • Steps to reduce the negative effects of iron sulfide in water/during recycling & reuse

PARAFFIN REDUCTION - NEW CHEMISTRIES TO REDUCE PARAFFIN ON FLOW LINES

12:20PM - 12:50PM REDUCING PARAFFIN DEPOSITION & BUILD-UP

  • Assess what is now causing paraffin to deposit, and how downhole temperature and pressure is impacting build-up

  • Application of paraffin control products and inhibitors that are proving effective in reducing paraffin build-up

  • E&P success stories and lessons learned on how to reduce paraffin

  • Results from West Texas to quantify how paraffin was cost-effectively managed in flowlines while protecting production and well profitability

12:50PM - NETWORKING LUNCH BREAK

DATA MANAGEMENT, AUTOMATION & DIGITALIZATION

CASE STUDIES & TECHNOLOGIES

1:50PM - 2:30PM HOW TO SET UP TO GET IT ALL TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE WHERE IT'S USABLE AND ACCESSIBLE AND OBSERVE IT IN REAL TIME TO STREAMLINE EFFICIENCIES

  • How to streamline data collection from several different platforms and several different teams

  • How to manage incompatibilities between different platforms and dashboards

  • Best practices for getting data together in one place where it's usable and accessible

  • Using history tracking for making big data more accessible/usable

  • Data collection/management technologies to streamline efficiencies

PANEL DISCUSSION

 

2:30PM - 3:00PM ASSESSING THE APPLICATION & PERFORMANCE OF NEW METHODS & TECHNOLOGIES: : WHAT CAN E&Ps DO DIFFERENTLY FOR CHEMICAL MONITORING?

  • Debating whether what is currently being done for automated/digital chemical monitoring is good enough or if new solutions are needed

  • New methodologies for optimizing chemical monitoring

  • Sharing lessons learned and recommendations to monitor more efficiently in the future

3:00PM - AFTERNOON NETWORKING BREAK

NEW CHEMISTRIES & TECHNOLOGIES & COMBINATION PRODUCTS

NEXT-GENERATION PRODUCTION CHEMISTRIES

 

3:30PM - 4:00PM NEW TECHNOLOGIES, DEVELOPMENT & PROCESSES FOR PRODUCTION CHEMICAL OPTIMIZATION

  • Review of newer chemistries and how they're different from capabilities and performance point of view

  • Find out how new chemistries compare to existing products from an economics, performance and margins point of view

  • Understand how effective new chemistries and acidic acids are for controlling downhole corrosion, iron sulfide, paraffin and scale issues and preventing its detrimental effects on the rest of the processes

  • New technology to manage emulsion issues

APPLICATION OF COMBINATION PRODUCTS TO TREAT MORE THAN ONE ISSUE

 

4:00PM - 4:30PM HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY MANAGE/MITIGATE MULTIPLE ISSUES WITH ONE CHEMISTRY

How can we improve to the point that we can get the best out of our chemistries and treat two or more issues with one product? Can we successfully manage corrosion, scale and iron sulphide one chemistry.

  • This vendor-led presentation will give operators key insight on the ability and performance of combination products to treat more than one downhole issue.

4:30PM DAY TWO CLOSING REMARKS

4:40PM END OF CONFERENCE
