Root Cause and Mitigation for Sand Production Root Cause and Mitigation for Sand Production Tuesday, 03 March 2020
Sand production due rock failure can have a severe impact on the economics of an oil or gas field. Erosion of the downhole or surface components by sand can lead to loss of integrity and hydrocarbon leakage. Production rates may need to be reduced to limit sand from flowing to the surface or filling the wells. Sand handling, either at surface or flushing from downhole, adds expense to lifting costs.Poor completion decisions at the beginning of production can risk the viability of the field sand management

Magnetic Resonance Technology: From Medical to the Oil Industry Magnetic Resonance Technology: From Medical to the Oil Industry Tuesday, 04 February 2020
Gabor Hursan Saudi Aramco AbstractThe discovery of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) phenomenon spawned innovative diagnostictechnologies that facilitated advancements in a wide range of disciplines including medicine, chemistryand earth sciences. Geologists observed that in a manner similar to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)that revolutionized medical imaging, NMR measurements illuminate pore-filling fluids inside a porousrock and provide unique insight to porosity, pore size and/or fluid viscosity

The Unfulfilled Expectation of Horizontal Wells With Multistage Fracture Completions in Conventional Reservoirs: A Solution The Unfulfilled Expectation of Horizontal Wells With Multistage Fracture Completions in Conventional Reservoirs: A Solution Wednesday, 18 December 2019
  This lecture presents approaches for increasing production from horizontal wells with multistage fracture (HWMSF) completions in conventional reservoirs. HWMSF completions are now regularly being drilled and completed in low-to-mid-permeability oil-bearing conventional reservoirs (k<10 md) where the oilfield is under waterflooding. Although the industry has closed the HWMSF technology gap of drilling and completing these wells, the productivity has been below the expected level. The production is

Approaches and tools for estimating the cost of wells at PJSC Gazprom Neft Approaches and tools for estimating the cost of wells at PJSC Gazprom Neft Monday, 25 November 2019
This lecture covers the application of the system engineering approach to the creation of the software "Drilling Value Engineering" to predict the cost of a well. The product development was carried out according to the V-model of the life cycle, in which the following stages were passed: requirements engineering, functional design, synthesis, implementation, verification and validation. At each stage of the life cycle, the necessary practices and tools were applied: identification and interviewing
