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 every other 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 2015 technical luncheon schedule for both Houston and New Orleans / Lafayette.    Contact me if you are interested.

2015 Lunch & Learn Schedule

Abstract
STRONGER THROUGHOUT ITS STRUCTURE
BlueCoil™ technology is based on new steel designs and new manufacturing processes developed by Tenaris to produce coiled tubing that is stronger and more fatigue and environmentally resistant throughout its structure. The life of a conventional coiled tubing string is normally limited by the fatigue life of its bias weld. As the required yield strength of coiled tubing increases, the fatigue life of the conventional bias weld decreases relative to the rest of the coiled tubing string. This limits the useful life of the entire string to the shorter life of the bias weld. In contrast, the bias weld and base tube fatigue performance of a BlueCoil™ string remain comparable for high strength coiled tubing grades. This allows greater utilization of the entire string and brings additional strength, reliability and longer string life to coiled tubing applications.

EXTENDED CAPABILITIES
BlueCoil™ technology brings extra fatigue performance and ballooning resistance over conventional coiled tubing grades. Fatigue performance of BlueCoil™ products after sour (aqueous H2S) exposure is also markedly improved. This technology shows improved sulfide stress cracking (SSC) performance, allowing the use of 20 ksi to 30 ksi higher yield strength grades in SSC environments compared to conventional coiled tubing grades. Hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) tests show that all the coiled tubing grades, including conventional and BlueCoil™ technology, have good HIC resistance for sour conditions. BlueCoil™ products are compatible with the equipment currently used with conventional coiled tubing, so there is no need for special handling or equipment requirements.
