USA Chapter Events

Monthly Lunch & Learns

At these regular monthly events, networking and lunch are followed by a concise, topical technical presentation. With an emphasis on case studies, this bite-size event consistently provides members and their guests with a look at the latest and greatest that the industry has achieved.

HOUSTON
Lunch & Learns are typically held the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Notifications will go out if one is postponed or cancelled.

NEW ORLEANS, LA
We’re starting an offshore section of the ICOTA USA chapter. This section is going to focus on all types of intervention work being performed in the Gulf of Mexico, from new deep water subsea completions to P & A work on the shelf. The goal is to bring to light the existing and new challenges of today’s offshore well intervention industry and help solve these issues by improving communication and promoting technical awareness.

We are accepting abstracts for the 2014 technical luncheon schedule for both Houston and New Orleans / Lafayette.    Contact me if you are interested.

 

Thanks to the generosity of Schlumberger, a Webinar is now available at no cost for those unable to attend our luncheons in person!  Log in and participate from the comfort of your office or by using your smartphone! 

For those attending in person, lunch service will begin around 11:30am with the presentation beginning at noon. To ensure you attend the presentation in its entirety, we recommend you log on a few minutes early as there may be media players you'll need to install.   If WebEx is available for a meeting, a link for instructions will be included below. 

 

2014 Lunch & Learn Schedule

August 7, 2014 (Houston, TX)


TOPIC: Wireline Intelligent Intervention Solutions for an Increasingly Challenging Production World presented by Amir Hermes, Product Champion - Tractor Interventions, Schlumberger

Norris Conference Center  [map]
LiveOak AB Room
816 Town & Country Blvd
Houston, Texas

Abstract
Barrel chasing through intervention activities has increased drastically worldwide in recent years. Wireline Intelligent Intervention services combined with Tractor Conveyance is a cost effective method addressing these new challenges for production restoration and optimization.

The latest generation intervention platform does represent a paradigm shift in wireline intervention. Downhole tools are fully instrumented, so the operator can visualize the movement and forces the equipment apply with high resolution in real time. This presentation discusses several case histories using the Wireline Intelligent Services:

Milling: The ReSOLVE Milling Tool employs a wheel-driven tractor and a rotary module driving a bit. The weight-on- bit (WOB) provided by the tractor is automatically controlled by a downhole closed-loop control system to optimize the milling process. Example from Norway, the tool was employed to mill out hard barium sulfate scale over a long section of tubing in an offshore well to enable conveyance of a tubing patch.

Universal Shifting Tool: Example from Middle-East where Wireline Intervention tool shifted 10 sliding sleeve ICDs in a horizontal well, conveyed by tractor. Shifting: Example from Norway where an intelligent shifting tool was deployed to pull a stuck retrievable plug that was failing to equalize.

Plug setting: The plug setting system uses hydraulics to set plugs non-explosively on wireline.

The latest generation of Wireline Intelligent Intervention services combined with the newest All Terrain extended access tractors provides new high levels of operational efficiency and augmented success rates.

August 19, 2014 (New Orleans, TX)


TOPIC: Innovative scale removal system enables safe and efficient restoration of TRSSSV integrity - A case study from the Nelson Field – North Sea Presented by: Dag Svendsen, Archer presented by Dag Svendsen, Archer

500 Saint Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA

Abstract
Scale is a serious oilfield challenge. It can cause restrictions in the rock matrix (formation damage), reducing the rate of hydrocarbon production; it can cause critical downhole components to malfunction, and of course it can restrict flow within the production tubing. It can also affect surface processing equipment. Operators in many regions are faced with managing and removing scale build up in order to maintain production and safe well operations. Mechanical means of scale removal and acid treatments can damage well components resulting additional problems. An innovated scale removal system has been designed to remove and inhibit all types of scale safely, reliably and rapidly. Unlike acid or mechanical treatments, there is no risk of damage to well components or the formation. In addition, its HSE classification simplifies logistics and makes it easier to handle at the wellsite. This presentation will explain the principals behind the scale removal system and provides a case history demonstrating its effectiveness.

Bio
Mr. Dag Svendsen worked within the mechanical industry prior to starting working in the oil industry. He started with Archer in 2011 and holds the position as Technical Support Manager, mechanical operations. He has more than 30 years of experience from the well service industry and has held several senior positions in Otis Overseas, Smedvig Seadrill and Seawell. Mr. Svendsen's extensive experience includes international operations. He has also taken numerous classes related to the oil industry such as drilling, well testing, wireline and well integrity. He is a Norwegian citizen and resides in Stavanger, Norway.
