Kevin Harnsberry, Integrity Lead - Permian Basin, XTO Energy

9:40AM - 10:10AM HOW TO SET UP AND GET IT ALL TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE WHERE IT'S USABLE, ACCESSIBLE AND OBSERVABLE

  • 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.

Stuart Schmidt, Chief Operating Officer, iTank Data

10:10AM - MORNING NETWORKING BREAK

10:40AM - 11:10AM ASSESS THE LATEST AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND DATA MANAGEMENT TOOLS THAT CAN BE IMPLEMENTED OVER MULTIPLE ASSETS TO OPTIMIZE CHEMICAL TREATMENT

  • How to a create a clear chemical automation strategy for the lifecycle of the well/asset How to classify and implement of Automation Technology based on criticality of treatment

  • Dive into the data that is required to optimize each injection point

  • How to make joint decision with the field on critical item

Chad Hammond, President, DC3 Contol

PANEL DISCUSSION

 

11:10AM - 11:50AM  DISCUSSION ON HOW TO OPTIMIZE CHEMICAL MONITORING EVEN FURTHER

E&Ps are no longer in the investigative phase; they are now starting to double down on the use cases that are going to help extract value. But how much progress has really been made in the last twelve months in chemical monitoring? Where are E&Ps finding value and seeing results?

  • If you are looking for answers on what is being done and can be done differently from an automated/digital chemical monitoring point of view, join your needs in the audience as learn new methodologies for optimizing chemical monitoring and lessons to monitor chemicals more efficiently in the future.

Aloysius Utomo, Senior Chemical Treatment Specialist, Occidental Petroleum

Alex Ross, Flow Assurance Specialist, Pioneer Natural Resources

IRON SULFIDE MITIGATION

11:50AM - 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

12:20PM - NETWORKING LUNCH BREAK

1:20PM - 2:00PM E&P STRATEGIES TO PREVENT AND TREAT BUILD UP

  • Latest challenges associated with paraffin build-up in production systems.

  • Thermal methods, such as hot oil and steam, for preventing and removing paraffin deposits.

  • Challenges and benefits of different paraffin management strategies.

BACK TO BASICS: ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION

2:00PM - 2:50PM ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS FOCUSING ON THE BASICS OF CHEMICAL SELECTION, APPLICATION & INJECTION

Chemical programs and chemical management teams are evolving. An observation from a leading E&P company is that in the race to advance oilfield chemical management, there is lack of attention to the basics and sometimes a violation of basic principles.

This back-to-basics deep-dive workshop is for all levels of oilfield chemical engineers and managers, giving attendees the insight on how to find and adopt clever ways of optimizing chemical programs, while adhering to basic chemical management principles.

  • When, where, how and how much chemicals to inject

  • How to get timing of injection right

  • How to optimize chemical concentration to make it successful

  • Understand limitations in chemical compatibility

  • Clever ways to minimize hardware and combine chemistries where possible

  • Summary of Key Points & Takeaways

2:50PM CLOSING REMARKS

3.00PM END OF CONFERENCE
