The Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) method is adopted to describe the fluid flow, while the Discrete Element Method (DEM) is adopted to describe the particle motion. A resolved CFD-DEM coupling approach is established to simulate the fluid-granular interactions by properly modeling the momentum exchange between fluid flow and particle motion. Through comparison of the proppant transport phenomena in flat and rough fractures, observations indicate the likelihood for the rough fractures to create tree-like proppant dunes, which would be beneficial for forming a proppant-filled flow channel with a higher and more sustainable conductivity.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209150-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Facheng Gong; Hai Huang; Tayfun Babadagli; Huazhou Li  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/a-computational-model-to-simulate-proppant-transport-and-placement-in-rough-fractures%e2%80%af

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles A Fatal Clean-out...An Engineer's Role in Safety - John Smitherman A devastating, fatal accident was one operator's powerful introduction to the idea that engineers should play a more active role in creating a safe workplace. An operator was performing a "routine field operation" by using foam-air to clean out a partially depleted horizontal well in the Permian Basin. Everything seemed normal to the experienced, but not technically trained, crew when they stopped circulating to allow the rig crew to strip pipe into the hole. Mere minutes later a downhole explosion sent a shockwave to the surface that destroyed wellhead equipment and ended the life of a young rig hand. What went wrong? This presentation explores our investigation into that question as it related to this particular job. As the ever expanding inventory of horizontal wells across the globe ages, well intervention after significant depletion will more often necessitate the use of low density fluids to establish and maintain circulation. Without employing the lessons learned here, it is certain that this incident will be repeated. Besides actionable results for the audience to use on other such clean-outs, we will present what this author realized to be an even more important finding...the engineer's responsibility in creating a safe field workplace. Key Takeaway: We need engineers to utilize their special knowledge to actively seek out and eliminate dangers in the workplace, especially in field procedures and facility design.

Yet during drilling engineering and construction of a well, drilling data quality and uncertainty are barely addressed in an auditable and scientific way.  SPE formed a cross-disciplinary technical sub-committee to investigate how to describe and propagate drilling data quality and uncertainty. From the collection of user stories including pain points, a multi-disciplinary workflow—drilling data generators—can now be captured and described.  This paper presentation details a user story, extracted from multiple use cases to illustrate how multiple stakeholders and disciplines manage, communicate, and understand the notion of wellbore depth and its relative uncertainty. It describes the development of an initial reference implementation of semantic graph manipulation, the associated vocabulary, and the description of uncertainty and quality notions and their linkage in terms of uncertainty propagation.  This presentation is from the 2022 IADC/SPE International Drilling Conference and Exhibition.    Paper Number: SPE-208754-MS   Published: 1 March 2022   Authors: Eric Cayeux; Carlos Damski; John Macpherson; Moray Laing; Pradeep Annaiyappa; Philip Harbidge; Michael Edwards; Jonathan Carney  Read terms and conditions.   https://streaming.spe.org/a-framework-to-capture-the-relationships-in-drilling-data-and-the-propagation-of-uncertainty

Paper Number: SPE-199143-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Santiago Alejandro Bodini; Gustavo Daniel Gonzalez Montero; Nicolas Telleria Agua del Cajón Field produces from conventional and unconventional formations since 1970. Gas lift has achieved good results for several years in the field. But despite working properly in the tubing, it didn't solve liquid accumulation in the perforated interval. Capex developed a customized bottom-hole equipment that optimizes well performance, by injecting gas lift below the packer. A cross-over packer with a concentric pipe design is used, allowing injected gas to be conducted through the annular space between them and to extract liquid and gas from the bottom of the well by the central tube of reduced diameter. The production gas can be produced with the liquid at the end of the pipe or rise through the annular space and join the liquid production and injected gas through a crossover located below the packer. The advantage of this system is that it ensures the removal of liquids from the lower part of the well with an optimized flow of injection gas. In the last 5 years, 25 devices were installed with operative success in all cases. Gas flow rate increased an average of 80% after the intervention. Liquid production increment is also observed in most cases. Reserves were gained as it was able to reduce the abandonment gas flow rate. https://streaming.spe.org/a-gas-lift-innovative-completion-design-for-extended-perforated-interval-gas-wells-a-5-year-and-25-wells-successful-experience-in-a-mature-gas-field-agua-del-cajon-field-neuquen-basin-argentina-i

In this work a methodology has been applied that integrates into a diagnostic diagram: production information, sand production interventions, fluids, completion and formations, and correlating the most critical sanding zones with the behavior of rock destabilizing variables. From this analysis, it is possible to recognize the areas that are most sensitive to producing sand and the operating conditions that sharpen the scenario. It was found that existing methodologies focus on estimating the stresses under which the rock fails and therefore produce sanding, but they do not focus on analyzing the root cause and conditions that can cause sand production in the first place, which is important to understand the behavior of the rock under different stresses. https://streaming.spe.org/a-methodology-to-identify-the-root-cause-and-conditions-of-sand-production-by-integrating-production-reservoir-and-completion-variables-applied-to-a-colombian-field-in-spanish

Their new algorithm benefits from the simplicity of adding one element at a time but does not compromise the accuracy. The algorithm has been implemented in a commercial combined hydraulic fracturing and reservoir simulator.

Our archived 2020-21 event content is now available free to SPE members! Paper Number: SPE-199033-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Mario A Ramirez; Ryan Pritchard Extended reach horizontal wells face significant challenges in drilling longer laterals with oil-base mud (OBM). A novel solid-state lubricant was developed to close the gap in limitations of liquid lubricants and OBM with respect to lubricity in long extended lateral sections. The novel solid lubricant reduces the surface contact area between the asperities (deformations) by rolling and provides a chemically bonded film on the contact areas to reduce the amount of shear stress between the surfaces. There is limited understanding of the complex mechanisms affecting the coefficient of friction (COF). The principles of Tribology were used to develop the solid-state lubricant. The Stribeck Curve describes the regimes while using a lubricant, including boundaries mixing elasto-hydrodynamic and hydrodynamic lubrication. Liquid lubricants are limited at controlling boundary conditions where the COF is ruled by asperities in contact between the surfaces. The novel solid-state lubricant works on the asperities of both the wellbore and bit/BHA. In addition, the COF is improved in the mixed and elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication regimes. https://streaming.spe.org/a-novel-solid-lubricant-uses-the-principles-of-tribology-to-reduce-the-coefficient-of-friction-cof-in-oil-based-muds-obm-for-extended-reach-drilling-applications-in-spanish

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles Accurate Load & Position Measurement Is Critical to Quality Dynamometer Analysis - Anthony Allison Analysis and control of sucker rod pumped (SRP) wells have changed drastically over the past 30+ years. Advanced diagnostic tools first started appearing as desktop applications. Eventually these tools shifted to the wellsite in the form of rod pump controllers to provide more accurate control of a rod pump system in real-time. These tools depend on a dynamometer card to properly analyze and control a rod pump system. However, the inputs to the dynamometer card are often of questionable accuracy. A poor quality dynamometer card can lead to improper control of the rod pump system. The accuracy of calculations that depend on the dynamometer data such as rod stress, gearbox torque, structure loading, and rod stress will also be reduced. This presentation will discuss the variety of instruments used to capture the inputs to a dynamometer card (polished rod load and position), including their strengths and weaknesses, how to recognize errors in the input data, and how to correct them. A key takeaway is how common these measurement errors are and how to identify and correct them to improve the operation of their rod pumped wells.

Paper Number: SPE-205927-MS Published: 15 September 2021 Authors: Luky Hendraningrat; Saeed Majidaie; Nor Idah Ketchut; Fraser Skoreyko; Seyed Mousa MousaviMirkalaei The potential of nanoparticles, which are classified as advanced fluid material, have been unlocked for improved oil recovery in recent years such as nanoparticles-assisted waterflood process. However, there is no existing commercial reservoir simulation software that could properly model phase behaviour and transport phenomena of nanoparticles. This paper presentation focuses on the development of a novel robust advanced simulation algorithms for nanoparticles that incorporate all the main mechanisms that have been observed for interpreting and predicting performance. A novel advanced simulation tool has successfully been developed to model advanced fluid material, particularly nanoparticles for improved/enhanced oil recovery. The main scripting of physics and mechanisms of nanoparticle injection is accomplished in the model and has an acceptable match with various types of nanoparticles, concentration, initial wettability, solvent, stabilizer, water hardness, and temperature. Reasonable matching for all experimental published data was achieved for pressure and production data. Critical parameters have been observed and should be considered as important input for laboratory experimental design. Sensitivity studies have been conducted on critical parameters and reported in the paper as the most sensitive for obtaining the matches of both pressure and production data. https://streaming.spe.org/advanced-reservoir-simulation-a-novel-robust-modelling-of-nanoparticles-for-improved-oil-recovery

Core samples recovered in recent field experiments have revealed large numbers of subparallel hydraulic fractures (swarms) that provide an alternative explanation for the enhanced stimulated surface area. The authors of this presentation argue that understanding the mechanisms behind the development of this stimulated surface area is key to optimizing the stimulation of unconventional resources. They investigated potential phenomena that could lead to fracture swarming.  Their analysis eliminated all mechanisms other than near wellbore effects to be the primary cause for the observed closely spaced hydraulic fractures.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209126-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Morris Joseph; Pengcheng Fu; Christopher Sherman; Hui Wu; Jixiang Huang; Wei Fu  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/an-investigation-of-candidate-mechanisms-for-hydraulic-fracture-swarming-through-high-fidelity-numerical-modeling%e2%80%af

According to the oil fingerprinting results based on patented Shell technology, 12 groups of oils were found. Biomarker analysis was carried out for 20 oil samples, according to the results of which all studied oils were formed in terrigenous (shaly) OM, deposited in lacustrine environment. Oils from central Nuraly are more thermally mature and lighter in density than those from western Nuraly. Oils of Akshabulak East are thermally less mature than oils of Central Akshabulak and Akshabulak South despite its deeper deposition. Based on the analysis, five prospective hydrocarbon accumulation zones were presented for increasing hydrocarbon reserves in the future.

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles Application of Oil and Gas Subsurface Evaluation Methodology to Geothermal: The Value of Data | Tom Bradley The energy landscape is changing, and renewable sources of energy are gaining in importance. As part of this, geothermal energy has the ability to be a key contributor as it can supply a constant dependable baseload for a wide range of uses, ranging from low temperature heating through mid temperature industrial uses, to high temperatures for power generation. It has additional benefits, that unlike other renewable sources such as wind and solar, it is has little or no reliance on varying prevailing conditions. However geothermal is a relatively young industry, and many stakeholders are unaware of the importance of detailed knowledge of the subsurface in the success of safely and economically realizing a project. As a result many projects disappoint in their returns. The subsurface knowledge required is very similar to that needed for successful hydrocarbon exploration, therefore the expertise in gained in the oil and gas industry over many years can be applied to geothermal projects to help increase their likelihood of success. However because of the nature of the two industries, there is often a barrier that needs to be broken down before this knowledge can be shared. In this presentation, I discuss how the subsurface information needed for success in the two industries is very similar, show the value of data, how well established oil and gas methodologies can be applied to help in the success of geothermal projects, and how the oil and gas industries can contribute to the success of geothermal energy.

The analysis was executed using modern methods of geological, hydrodynamic, and geomechanical modeling. Method of most favorable zones’ isolation for carrying out multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of formation is proposed. Considering the selected zones and the expected direction of crack development, the trajectories of new horizontal wells with a large deviation from the vertical were optimized. Efficiency assessment was carried out by comparing the technical and economic parameters of the proposed development option (horizontal wells with multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of the formation) with the basic version (horizontal wells with traditional completion). A hydrodynamic model was used to calculate oil production levels according to options. As a result, it was proved that the use of multi-stage hydraulic fracturing technology will involve additional oil reserves in the development and increase the efficiency of expensive offshore drilling. https://streaming.spe.org/application-of-the-multi-stage-hydraulic-fracturing-technology-in-horizontal-wells-with-large-vertical-outflow-to-improve-the-development-efficiency-of-reservoirs-with-deteriorated-filtration-capaci-2

Paper Number: SPE-202046-MS Published: 26 October 2020 Authors: Ivan Denisenko Denisenko; Igor Andreevich Kuvaev; Igor Borisovich Uvarov; Oleg Evgenievich Kushmantzev; Artem Igorevich Toporov Today's oil & gas industry faces a number of different challenges. In recent years, companies have been looking at the ways of optimizing drilling costs by increasing efficiency and process automation. This has been a driver for many companies to stay profitable and efficient in the market. One of the areas of interest for process automation has been geosteering. In this paper presentation, innovative new approaches to automation of the geosteering process will be discussed. This approach has been successfully tested and deployed in several leading O&G companies. The main objective of automated geosteering is to optimize horizontal well placement while freeing up time operational geologists had spent doing routine work in order to focus on complex and more intense tasks as well as the reduction of operational errors related to human factors. This paper will provide details on several automated geosteering algorithms. They have been tested successfully on large numbers of wells. The results of automated geosteering were as close as 90% to the manual interpretations done by geologists. When the results diverged, the geologists often "agreed" with the interpretation proposed by the algorithm. https://streaming.spe.org/automated-geosteering-while-drilling-using-machine-learning-case-studies

Horne Well monitoring can provide a continuous record of flow rate and pressure, which gives us rich information about the reservoir and makes well data a valuable source for reservoir analysis. Recently, it has been shown that machine learning is a promising tool to interpret well transient data. Such methods can be used to denoise and deconvolve the pressure signal efficiently and recover the full reservoir behavior. The machine learning framework has also been extended to multiwell testing and flow rate reconstruction. Multiwell data can be formulated into machine learning algorithms using a feature-coefficient-target model. The reservoir model can then be revealed by predicting the pressure corresponding to a simple rate history with the trained model. Flow rate reconstruction aims at estimating any missing flow rate history by using available pressure history. This is a very useful capability in practical applications in which individual well rates are not recorded continuously. The success of rate reconstruction modeling also illustrates the adaptability of machine learning to different kinds of reservoir modeling, by adjusting features and targets. Machine learning is also a particularly promising technique for analysis of data from permanent downhole gauges (PDG), given that the massive volumes of data are otherwise hard to interpret using conventional interpretation methodologies.

Paper Number: SPE-199510-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Marco Pelucchi; Jason Sali; Laura Consalvi; Paola Maria Pedroni Effective minimization of environmental footprint can be achieved through the timely and systematic application of innovative approaches such as the Mitigation Hierarchy (MH) along O&G project lifecycle. Innovative and collaborative approaches are necessary to effectively communicate or build capacity on company science-based BES management practices. Early E&P phases correspond with the best opportunity to identify BES priorities and apply the preventive steps of the MH. During the development phase, a suite of GIS-based tools and BES assessments provide a supportive framework to apply the MH in concept selection, definition and execution. Subsequently in the operational phase, action plans are used to ensure the delivery and iterative evaluation of impact mitigation and the continuous improvement of BES performance. Through practical examples spanning different phases of the project lifecycle and sites located in biodiversity rich and sensitive areas, this paper presentation will illustrate how challenges can be overcome starting from early exploration phase (evaluation of new ventures), in project development (design and construction), and during production. We will also reflect on the contribution of the MH to value creation from operations in sensitive areas. https://streaming.spe.org/biodiversity-and-sensitive-areas-impact-prevention-along-project-lifecycle-through-the-application-of-the-mitigation-hierarchy

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles Capping a Subsea Blowout Is Not Rocket Science — Or Is It? — Andy Cuthbert Well intervention techniques with the highest likelihood of success, in the shortest amount of time, depend on an accurate assessment of subsea blowout conditions. Misconceptions still remain regarding the effect of the blowout plume and the ability to successfully land a capping stack on a blowing well. In 2010 the response to a subsea source control incident was revised in terms of the hardware used, but the need to overcome the exit velocity, resultant lift-off forces, combined buoyancy, and jet momentum effects of the blowout plume release dynamics was neglected, or otherwise unappreciated. One solution claimed the plume created "a centering force" such that when the capping stack entered the plume it was supposedly self-centered and was guided down the plume onto the wellhead. Recent rigorous CFD analysis of the plume force flowfield dispels this erroneous belief that the plume actually assists in the deployment process. Additionally, it was recognized that the development of a case-specific engineering model for use in a dynamic landing simulation was required for both deep water and shallow water deployment scenarios. We now appreciate that with plume exit velocities and resultant jet force effects reaching Mach speed, aerospace engineering methodology is required. "What is the one idea you would like the members to take away from this lecture?" By unraveling the complex physics of the jet forces and associated turbulence involved in a subsea blowout flowfield, an appreciation can be gleaned of the plume-affected multi-body interactions that exist during a capping operation, and the type of high fidelity, high-resolution analysis required to produce results necessary to design a successful capping stack deployment plan.

Use of a completion design process facilitated by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning can overcome these limitations by providing new insight about how to improve completion effectiveness. This type of approach has facilitated the development of well fields that were previously uneconomic. The vertical and horizontal wellbore case studies presented have resulted in up to twice the production/recovery and in some cases a significant reduction in completion cost. This presentation will show how AI facilitated data evaluation studies have been used to enhance understanding about the complex interaction between reservoir strata, the wellbore and completion design. Case history examples from the Granite Wash, Bakken and Marcellus are included in this presentation.

The world is becoming increasingly data-driven and technologically disrupted, and this momentum is expected to continue. In this presentation, they detail their tested and effective nine-step data governance framework, developed based on years of experience in the oil and gas industry, ranging from operations, engineering, and production volumes allocations to information technology and continuous improvement. Key to the importance of this work is treating data as a strategic asset and recognizing that, without trustworthy data, planning and performance analysis, whether performed by a human colleague or robotics/advanced analytics, is of limited and misleading value.

This is done by using statistical predictive models, particularly in this case, neural network models. The proposed model takes the input data from the Volve’s dataset. The trained model shows high accuracy, higher than 84% on the test data. After the model is trained and validated, it’s implemented into a frontend which will serve as the front user interface where he can upload the mud plan parameters and obtain a stuck pipe event chance evaluation. Having these results, the user can improve the mud plan in order to reduce the chance that an event of this type occurs. The main advantage of this methodology is that it allows to include historical data from the other drilled wells, this way, boosting the mud plan design with real data and reducing the chances that a stuck pipe event, that account for a high percentage of NPT’s during drilling operations, occur.

Paper Number: SPE-199415-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Marco Pelucchi; Jason Sali; Victoria Gerber; Andrew Cameron; Cyril Mickiewicz; Paola Maria Pedroni Remote sensing technologies and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can assist the rapid, cost-effective identification of biodiversity and environmentally sensitive areas in offshore and onshore environments. This information, visually represented through a WebGIS as interactive maps, provides useful input to management strategies that environmentally responsible energy companies put in place for impact prevention, and to minimise risk exposure and potential liabilities along the project lifecycle. As part of our Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (BES) management model, we apply a suite of supporting tools and guidance materials. The BES Screening Tool (BESST) is an interactive WebGIS developed in collaboration with the conservation organization Fauna and & Flora International for the rapid screening and visualisation of BES values in the marine environment of the Gulf of Mexico. This paper presentation will illustrate, through practical examples, how the BESST can meet different business needs, such as: informing asset acquisition and disinvestment strategies (by identifying those located in highly sensitive areas where regulatory requirements are more restrictive, financial/reputational risks are higher, and restoration costs are also higher) and supporting the identification of priority operated and non-operated assets, facilities and associated infrastructure for resource prioritization for environmental baselines, mitigation and monitoring plans.

Utilizing Diagnostics to Differentiate New Fracture Creation vs Old Fracture Reactivation: A Meramec and Wolfcamp Study  The focus of this study is two projects in which both cross-well strain and microseismic were integrated to characterize the geometry of new hydraulic fractures and to understand the interaction with pre-existing fractures during well stimulation. Both projects collected low-frequency DAS using permanent fibers in offset wells and were monitored with borehole microseismic arrays during stimulations. Organizing the data relative to distance from the active stage and time since stage start was a key step in understanding what the diagnostics measured during stimulation. Understanding the range of possible mechanisms measured by advanced diagnostics is key—not just in accurately characterizing fracture geometry but also in understanding the impact of failed media on hydraulic fracture growth.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209123-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Jackson Haffener; Kyle Haustveit; Trevor Ingle  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/did-we-break-new-rock-utilizing-diagnostics-to-differentiate-new-fracture-creation-vs-old-fracture-reactivation-a-meramec-and-wolfcamp-study%e2%80%af

Is There a Value? - Varma Gottumukkala The digital transformation brought about by edge computing, real-time surveillance, and high-speed interpretation has reduced reaction times, increased data value, and improved operating efficiency. Drilling a well to target depth does not guarantee maximum oil production. Challenges include early gas or water breakthrough, poor sweep, well integrity failures, lack of downhole data, and the need for interventions. New technologies for permanent monitoring of pressure, temperature, and distributed temperature and acoustic data have created a step change in hydrocarbon asset management, especially when combined with the range of choices available for downhole flow control. The next step of rapid automated downhole control for production optimization is now a reality. With the right technology, hybrid data analytics and model-based workflows can significantly enhance production while minimizing interventions. This digital evolution of the past decade is discussed and several case studies are presented, encompassing a wide range of applications and well types. The economic value of digital wells is demonstrated through outcomes that include increased recovery, reduced production deferment, better reservoir management, optimized hydraulic fracturing, and surface seismic depth correction. An analysis of the savings generated by deploying intelligent completions in various well profiles is also presented.

Join us, as we look to explore the critical issues of equality and inclusion within the oil and gas industry with this SPE Live brought to you by Chevron and Wintershall Dea. While women make up 22% of employees in the oil and gas industry worldwide, according to Catalyst data from 2020, gender diversity increases with seniority. Entry-level positions are comprised of 27% women, 17% are at senior and executive-level positions and just 1% of oil and gas CEOs are women. Diversity has many business benefits to oil and gas companies, beyond simply contributing to a fair and equal workplace and society. It’s long been reported that organizations with diverse workforces perform better financially, and a report from the Peterson Institute for International Economics in 2019 echoes this sentiment, outlining that women leaders can add 6% to a business’s bottom line. It's clear the oil and gas sector still has some way to go before truly being diverse, particularly when it comes to attracting and promoting women. However, there are clear steps companies can take to play their part in creating a more inclusive future. This panel will look to share ideas and strategies to break the glass ceiling in the search for equity and inclusion in the oil and gas sector. Guest Speakers: Kimberley McHugh, Vice President of Wells, Chevron Lina Serpa, Vice President, Wells Solutions, BP Gretchen Haskins, Board Director, Helioffshore and Flight Safety Foundation Janne Lea, Vice President Reservoir Management - Development and Engineering, Wintershall Dea Norge AS The panel will be moderated by Carole Nakhle, Chief Executive Officer of Crystol Energy. https://streaming.spe.org/diversity-in-oil-and-gas-how-to-break-the-glass-ceiling

Technology applications are being developed by large and small companies. Rising data demands are uncovering source data quality issues that also affect data analytics. Automation will not be an all or nothing proposition, humans will still perform roles in the automation loops according to the balance of sensor data quality, algorithm capability, operational uncertainty and human capacity. Drilling programs are rapidly being digitized for greater collaboration and learning efficacy, providing the input to automated drilling systems. The value proposition of automated drilling is moving from time saved by drilling performance to increasing well productivity and reducing well operating costs. A multidiscipline approach to drilling systems automation (DSA) adoption focused on drilling duration, well productivity, and well operation yields the greatest value. This SPE Distinguished Lecture presentation view is holistic and industry neutral (agnostic) benefiting all participants. There is no single solution; there is room for everybody to learn to participate. The key idea from this lecture: DSA is advancing rapidly; understanding how a holistic view encompassing drilling, subsurface, and production enables knowledgeable implementation decisions for adoption by users and providers drives maximize value.

It includes post-treatment acoustic imaging data from three Montney pads, in which the dimensions of 3538 perforations and casing wear patterns at 150 frac plug setting locations were determined. The analysis process features an iterative approach to improving execution performance during field appraisal – execute the design, measure performance, identify failures, and then implement an improved design. This approach identified execution performance issues that would have otherwise been undetected and provided insights that were used to inform manufacturers of necessary design improvements.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209184-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Mark Watson; Mitch Schinnour; David D.

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles Drones Unlocked: The Social Horizon for Oil and Gas In the current uncertainty, people are losing trust in dialogue, and increasingly turning to hard bargaining and protests. The increasing use of drone technology can contribute to this negative shift in attitudes around oil and gas installations. At the same time, this technology offers a unique opportunity for engagement. The Social Impact Asset Management (SIAM) project is a concession area drone and human data collection platform. It is a way to present easily understood evidence for joint decision-making. By also facilitating the management of regulatory requirements and planning, it creates much-needed scalability in drone use. The angle taken in this presentation taps into work done for safety and rescue services in the UK, and impact assessment for the United Nations. It revolves around how to deal with the two challenges to the use of drones in sustainability: scaling up, and social acceptance. It maps the way in which stakeholder engagement will benefit, and how drones can be unleashed for the benefit of local populations and industry.

Hincapie; Ante Borovina; Elisabeth Neubauer; Samhar Saleh; Vladislav Arekhov; Magdalena Biernat; Torsten Clemens; Muhammad Tahir Even though the influence of wettability alteration on imbibition is well-documented, its synergy with Interfacial-Tension (IFT) for Alkali/Nanoparticles/Polymer flooding requires additional investigation. Particularly, when the oil Total Acid Number (TAN) may determine the wetting-state of the reservoir and influences (IFT). Therefore, a laboratory evaluation workflow is presented that combines complementary assessments such as spontaneous imbibition tests, IFT, and contact angles measurements. Data obtained demonstrate how oil TAN number (low and high), chemical agent, and reservoir mineralogy influence fluid-fluid and rock-fluid interactions. We leverage from complementary laboratory techniques to define a comprehensive workflow that allows understanding wettability-alteration when injecting Alkali, Nanoparticles and Polymers, or a combination of them. Obtained results show that the workflow can be used as an efficient screening tool to determine the effectiveness of various substances to increase oil recovery rate and ultimate recovery. https://streaming.spe.org/dynamics-of-wettability-alteration-from-alkali-nanoparticles-polymer-flooding-integrating-data-of-imbibition-contact-angle-and-interfacial-tension-to-screen-injection-agents

An alternative solution is proposed as a modification of the dump flooding concept. The modification of the conventional dump flooding design consists of adding surface monitoring and control capabilities. A comprehensive process for the completion design considered reservoir, well and operational conditions as both new and existing wells were considered as candidates for these completion systems. The design consists of a concentric completion with packers to isolate both the water aquifer and oil reservoir. This paper presentation shares the main design and operational considerations before execution, deployment challenges, and lessons learned and recommendations from the execution of the first campaign. https://streaming.spe.org/economical-and-technical-solution-for-waterflooding-projects-in-a-mature-field-modified-dump-flooding-well-completion-strategy-in-spanish

However, most of the digitalization effort to date has been focused on increasing operational efficiency to reduce cost. In this paper presentation, the authors demonstrate the need to balance between optimizing fracture efficiency and effectiveness; present an integrated system for frac optimization using real-time historical data along with organizational knowledge; and discuss the key considerations and challenges of setting up such a system.  Results from field testing show that their system accelerates the learning curve, enables consistent decision making by operators, and can generate significant cost savings. They present an integrated framework that connects real-time data and organizational knowledge to guide an operator to pump the best frac stage while reacting to formation response within a set of constraints.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209127-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Somnath Mondal; Ashan Garusinghe; Sebastian Ziman; Muhammed Abdul-Hameed;  Rakesh Paleja; Matthew Jones; Jan Limbeck; Bryce Bartmann; Jeremy Young; Kent Shanley; Bonner Cardwell; Humphrey Klobodu; Paul Huckabee; Gustavo Ugueto; Christopher Ledet  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/efficiency-and-effectiveness-a-fine-balance-an-integrated-system-to-improve-decisions-in-real-time-hydraulic-fracturing-operations%e2%80%af

Paper Number: SPE-199091-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Walter Nunez; Jessica Del Pino; Sebastian Gomez; Douglas Rosales; Juan Puentes; Hamilton Rivera Recent industry challenges have resulted in great opportunities to find efficiencies that can enhance production, avoid down times and optimize operation in Electric Submersible Pump Systems (ESP). One of the main drivers is to implement procedures that can extend ESP run life, and one of the key challenges is to identify any trouble that can impact ESP performance timely so it can implement solutions to avoid failures. A joint team composed by the operator and the service company developed a troubleshooting manual to the proper identification of likely conditions that could be impacting the production and performance of ESP systems. This was achieved using monitoring information, tear down evidence, setting configuration and building a database with all the information in order to group similar cases to identify the best ways to respond to any anomaly in ESP behavior. This paper presentation aims to present the most relevant analyzed cases, the procedures implemented and the results in FI after implementation as well as recommendations to any party interested in implementing similar projects in their operations. https://streaming.spe.org/electric-submersible-pump-troubleshooting-guide-an-effective-way-to-improve-system-performance-and-reduce-avoidable-system-failures

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles Enhanced Experimental Carbon Dioxide Sweep Using Surface Coated Silica Nanoparticles as a Foaming Agent Solvent flooding is a well-established method of enhanced oil recovery (EOR), with carbon dioxide (CO2) being the most often used solvent. The goal of the core flood experiments in this paper was to study the effectiveness of surface coated silica nanoparticles as an in-situ CO2 foaming agent. The experiments consisted of vertical core floods where liquid CO2 displaced brine from the top to the bottom of the core. In these experiments, breakthrough occurred 45% later with foamed CO2, and the final CO2 saturation was also 45% greater than with the unfoamed CO2. The study shows how nanoparticles stabilize the CO2 front. The results provide quantitative information on, as well as a graphical representation of, the behavior of the CO2 foam front as it advances through the core. This data can be used to upscale the behavior observed and properties calculated from the core-scale to the reservoir-scale to improve field applications of CO2 flooding.

Paper Number: SPE-199508-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Steven Dickinson; Stephan Plisson-Saune; Patricia Mani The objective and scope of this paper are to present how an oil & gas company has furthered its biodiversity ambition by joining the Act4Nature initiative. A key aim of Act4Nature is to provide a contribution towards the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) efforts to combat global biodiversity loss. The 2018-2020 period are important years for global biodiversity strategic protection efforts as the CBD has set itself the short-term goal of developing a post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), building on its 2010-2020 Targets and as a stepping-stone towards its 2050 Vision Living in Harmony with Nature. However, the CBD has indicated that the targets will likely not be met in their entirety. In this context, the need for voluntary Business biodiversity commitments is even more pressing, relevant and expected from stakeholders. Importantly, the CBD recognises the important role of business, including oil and gas, in combating biodiversity loss. https://streaming.spe.org/establishing-public-biodiversity-commitments-within-an-oil-gas-company

This paper presentation describes a model and a method to predict potential locations where a horizontal fracture can develop and limit the vertical growth of the fracture. The model developed in the study is helpful in predicting potential locations where a horizontal fracture can develop and limit the vertical growth or even curtail the extension of the main fracture. The method developed requires discrete layered formation and fluid properties as the only inputs, and hence, can be applied to a variety of examples worldwide.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209151-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Vibhas J.

It seemed that actual physical tests could be a valuable contribution to the industry activity. The key benefit of these tests is that all the data was physically measured and not subject to interpretation, therefore providing solid data for subsequent model calibration and predictions. Validity and shortfalls in the standardly used orifice flow equations was also the subject of the studies and will be discussed. Learnings about perforation erosion and impacts of different proppant sources, as well as fluid velocities, occurred.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209141-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Phil Snider; Steve Baumgartner; Mike Mayerhofer; Matt Woltz  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/execution-and-learnings-from-the-first-two-surface-tests-replicating-unconventional-fracturing-and-proppant-transport

Our archived 2020-21 event content is now available free to SPE members! Paper Number: SPE-199059-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Sergio Hernández; Cristian Giol; Randall Rodríguez; Jaysmlen Rodmilt Jaspe Rodriguez In the Ecuadorian jungle, operators use the same location to drill several deviated wells. The geometries of these "S" or "J" type wells present high dogleg severity (DLS) in different sections, requiring rotation and reaming of the casing string to reach the target depth. During the rotation in deviated sections, the combination of the resultant bending of the string and its rotation generate alternating stresses in the pipe body and the connections. Likewise, contact forces on the string during the process promote the increase of drag and torque that the casing string must withstand during its installation. These service characteristics can lead to create the conditions for potential fatigue and over-torque damages in the components of the casing strings installed in these wells. This paper presentation shares the strategy applied to achieve the reduction failure occurrence and promote the time optimization during the casing running in these directional wells. Some results obtained from the pilot phase of the overall project are also presented.   https://streaming.spe.org/failure-reduction-and-time-optimization-on-casing-rotation-operations-in-directional-wells-of-mature-fields-in-ecuadorian-jungle-in-spanish

The study provides an environmentally friendly solution to the drill-cutting disposal problem with procedures and limitations, and it helps to reduce the cost of fracturing operations.  Results showed that adding up to 25% drill cuttings to the proppant pack had an insignificant effect on the fracture conductivity. Results also showed that drill cuttings could be disposed of by adding them to the proppant slurry at a rate less than 25% of the proppant rate without causing any deleterious effect on the fracture conductivity created.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209173-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Fabián Carrascal-Delgado; Sara Abedi; A.

First, the completions industry found a way to economically stimulate unconventional rocks. Second, fracture modelers "got their eyes" through commercial development and proliferation of direct fracture diagnostics such as micro-seismic fracture mapping. Direct observations from fracture mapping enabled calibration of fracture models, resulting in a "roller coaster ride" of changes to frac modelers' understanding of how fractures grow. To explain these observations, modelers incorporated new physical mechanisms - simultaneous growth of multiple fractures, fracture tip effects and composite layering effects - into their models. What I would like members to take away from this lecture is that model calibration has become a vital part of the fracture modeling process, creating ever more realistic fracture growth predictions. Calibration has made fracture models more valuable as tools to evaluate economic tradeoffs, making fracture models more practical tools than ever before. This presentation is from the Distinguished Lecturer 2020-21 season. https://streaming.spe.org/fracture-model-calibration-for-conventional-and-unconventional-rocks-dr-leen-weijers

Improvements made to industry drilling and completion standards in the last decade have reduced the occurrences of these events with the goal to eliminate them. In preparation for these scenarios, operators must submit a relief well contingency plan to regulatory authorities as a prerequisite to obtain a deep water drilling permit. The main challenge in relief well operations is managing the combined wellbore positional uncertainty of a target well and an interception well. To succeed in a relief well operation, an operator must use all available wellbore positioning techniques. This presentation is based on the SPE-ISCWSA Well Interception Sub-Committee good practices. Techniques and methodologies will be introduced through a non-commercial lens. At the end of the session, the opportunity to ask questions and links to materials will be provided. https://streaming.spe.org/good-practices-in-well-control-intervention-via-relief-well-subsurface-interception-benny-poedjono

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles How To Design A Good Reservoir Model | Mark Bentley How can you tell the difference between a ‘good’ reservoir model and a ‘bad’ one? Distinguished Lecturer Mark Bentley draws on experiences accumulated over the last 25 years working with international and national oil companies. He draws out common themes–why some modeling and simulation outcomes are ‘good’ and others are ‘bad’. Reservoir and simulation modeling capability has become a mainstream activity in petroleum engineering yet the models themselves tend to disappoint. Crucially, models and forecasts tend to be optimistic. This presentation's overriding theme is model design, and it will be argued that many of the modeling errors are made before anyone logs on. It’s not the capability of the software, it’s the design choices made. Bentley shares recommended approaches to the following design issues using a case study from a mature oil field undergoing waterflood. Model purpose and the balance of simplicity vs. complexity Imperfect data and concept-based modeling – “if you can sketch it, you can model it” A fluid-centric view of the need for detail: reservoir modeling rather than geological modeling The scale transition, searching for the 'lost heterogeneity' This presentation is from the Distinguished Lecturer 2021-22 season. https://streaming.spe.org/how-to-design-a-good-reservoir-model-mark-bentley

Over the past year, our industry has been rocked by geopolitical tensions, COVID-19, global energy demand destruction and extraordinary price volatility. Resulting budget constraints, company downsizings and travel restrictions have radically changed the way our people work, access knowledge and gain experience. At the same time, the accelerating debate on climate and energy transition is making it harder for the oil and gas industry to attract and retain the diverse, leading talent it vitally needs. This SPE Live will address some key questions including: •Does our industry still offer the benefits of global connections and international careers that were once its hallmark? •Can we compete with digital technology companies to offer desirable careers enriched by a lifetime of learning and growth? •How do we continuously learn and thrive in this challenging environment?

The video description is used to give more detail about the contents of the video as well as to further entice the viewer to invest their time to watch the video. We recommend keeping the description short as well at about 150 characters. Similar to other word processing software, you can stylize your text. Things like making your text bold or italicized. But you can also hyperlink text. So for example, if we wanted to hyperlink John Smith’s name to his website, you simply highlight the text and select the hyperlink icon, then enter the URL. This function can be very useful for implementing a call to action such as downloading a PDF, event registration, or for further reading on a topic. You will also notice an “Add Media” button. This allows you to include files in your video description. When you click the button, a dialogue box will appear. You’ll see 2 tabs, Upload Files and Media Library. The Media Library contains all of the previously uploaded files. To use an existing file, click on the media icon and select “Insert Into Post”. Under the Upload Files tab, you can add a new piece of media. In this case we’ll upload a PDF document. Then select “Insert Into Post”. The media will be automatically hyperlinked in the video description. To edit the text displayed and other link settings, click on the pencil icon then the Link Options gear icon. Here you can change the target URL, the text displayed in your description, or whether or not to open the link in a new tab. In most cases it’s best to have the link open in a new tab. This helps viewers come back to your video after they have visited your linked content. https://streaming.spe.org/how-to-add-a-description

No different than how Netflix has channels for comedy, drama, action, etc. This makes content easier for your viewers to find, and it also improves search engine optimization. Don’t be afraid to add your video to more than 1 channel. The more channels that the video is in, the more likely a viewer is to discover it. Before you start selecting your channels it is important to select the Library channel. This is what actually adds the video into the video library and all other channels are a subcategory of the Library channel. Similarly, let’s say I wanted to add this post to the Advertising channel. I would also need to select the Revenue Model channel, as it is a parent channel to Advertising. You will also see a Feature channel. Selecting this will place the video as the featured video at the top of your video home page. Since only 1 video can be featured at a time, the most recently published video with this channel selected will be displayed. Selecting the Unlisted channel hides the video from being listed in the video library and all channels, but is still viewable by anyone with the permalink. This is ideal for sharing videos with a select group of people. The Private channel takes this a step further by only allowing users who are logged in to the video site to view the video. https://streaming.spe.org/how-to-add-your-post-to-a-channel

You can drag and drop your video file onto the Media Uploader module, or click the “Select Video File” button and choose your video file. You’ll then see a progress bar indicating the upload status. Once the video has been uploaded, the file needs to process. During processing, the video file is being converted into 11 renditions that vary in quality to insure seamless playback for the viewer on any device. It is also being populated to more than 200,000 servers around the world. The longer the video is, the longer it will take to process, but please do not click away from the page or close the browser tab during processing. Doing so will interrupt the process. Once the video has been processed successfully, a confirmation message will be displayed. Next, we’ll upload a Featured Image. A Featured Image is the image that will be displayed as the thumbnail for your video in the video library and channel pages. First impressions are everything, so it is important to select an image that entices the viewer to click. Our statistics show that users are more likely to click on a thumbnail showing a person, rather than a graphic. If you are showing a person, be sure to use a frame where they are looking their best. To upload an image, click on “Set Featured Image”. The Add Media dialogue box will appear and you can select a previously uploaded image or upload a new image. We recommend using an image that is at least 640 x 360 pixels and has a 16:9 aspect ratio, such as 640 x 360, 1280 x 720, or 1920 x 1080. Once your image is selected, click “Set Featured Image”. Finally, moving to the Publish module, you can click the “Save Draft” button to save your progress, or the “Preview” button to see what your post will look like. To publish immediately, simply click the “Publish” button. To schedule your post to publish at a later date, click the “Edit” link beside “Publish Immediately”, select your date and time, and click “OK”. The Publish button will then change to “Schedule”. Click the button to schedule your post. Click “Edit” beside “Visibility” to set a password on the post or make the video private. A password protected post will be visible in the video library. But the password is required in order to watch the video. A private post only allows users who are logged in to view the post. Once your post is published, the Publish or Schedule button will change to Update. Use this button to update the post when you make changes to a published post. You can also un-publish a post by changing the Status from Published to Draft. To delete the post, click the “Move to Trash” link. https://streaming.spe.org/how-to-creating-a-post-overview

Many different proppants, fracture fluids, and proppant placement methodologies have been historically used to achieve desired proppant conductivity and conductive surface area. Understanding the proppant transport mechanism has played a key role in increasing productivity at a low cost. With hydraulic fracture design evolution and increased activity, especially in unconventional resources, it is critical to consider proppant transport behavior in realistic fracture features such as lateral and vertical tortuosity, variable width, leak-off, and fluid dynamics replicating upward fracture growth. Distinguished Lecturer Amit Singh shares recent advances in understanding proppant transport from advanced laboratory and field studies. He covers how these novel learnings and important design considerations should be applied to optimize a "reservoir-centric hydraulic fracture design." He also highlights the opportunity and need to optimize proppant and fracture fluid properties along with injection sequence for effective and economic proppant placement thereby achieving well stimulation goals.

By substantially reducing the non-uniqueness of possible interpretations, integrating simultaneous deformation measurements allows the authors to resolve the fracture opening with higher confidence and resolution. They provide a step-by-step modeling workflow, verify their approach using synthetic data, and quantify the uncertainty. The resulting correlation between fracture opening and fiber strain can then be applied to other stages in the treatment well that fall outside the detectability range of DTFM and only have fiber data available.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209149-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Peyman Moradi; Doug Angus; Mukul Sharma  Read terms and conditions.  https://streaming.spe.org/hydraulic-fracture-width-inversion-using-simultaneous-downhole-tiltmeter-and-distributed-acoustic-sensing-data%e2%80%af

According to studies in the Cretaceous and Paleogene strata, sedimentary organic matter is of mixed clastic-marine origin. Moderate amounts of organic matter have been recorded in the Eocene sediments (on average 0.70%), in the Upper and Lower Cretaceous average values made up 0.39% и 0.42%, respectively. Analysis of bitumoid composition suggests that in several areas bitumoids have experienced a widespread movement across the sedimentary strata. The results of measurements on isolated samples indicate that the Cretaceous strata have only advanced to the initial hard-coal stage of organic transformation (0.48-0.55%Ro). On vitrinite reflectance data the Eocene deposits in studied areas of the Middle Kura depression have reached initial stage of catagenetic transformation (±0.48Ro%; est. paleotemperature of 85°C). Nonetheless, analysis of formation conditions of commercial HC accumulations found earlier in the Eocene strata allows considering them the most prospective in the Middle Kura depression. https://streaming.spe.org/hydrocarbon-generative-properties-and-maturity-of-upper-cretaceous-and-lower-eocene-sediments-in-the-middle-kura-depression

Our archived 2020-21 event content is now available free to SPE members! Paper Number: SPE-199057-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: José W González; Alejandro Linares; Eliana Meza; Diana Chaparro; Carlos Monzon The objective of paper, associated with this presentation, is to identify zones of fluid movements in the reservoir and behind the casing using the second derivative of the flowing temperature (T) log in producing wells. Generally, the combination of static and flowing temperature is required in order to detect flow behind the casing, which implies shutting down the well and deferred production. The results indicated that there is a direct relationship between the movement of fluids with the second temperature derivative in a reservoir-wellbore system. There is a 95% consistency with production logging (PLT´s) results. Coupled with this, the open hole gamma ray (GR) log was compared with the cased hole GR, and a radioactivity increment was observed in the water production intervals which match with the changes of the second derivative of the temperature. Based on those outcomes, it was possible to identify in the reservoir-wellbore system leaks, flow behind the casing, fluid contributions in the perforated intervals and aquifer influx. https://streaming.spe.org/identification-of-fluid-flow-zones-in-the-reservoir-and-behind-casing-through-the-second-derivative-of-the-flowing-temperature-in-spanish

Paper Number: SPE-199037-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Walter Nunez; Jessica Del Pino; David Garzon; Duvan Pinto; Camilo Gonzalez; Jaime Pinilla; Alvaro Gomez In the Llanos Norte area, ESP systems represent 92% of the installed artificial lift systems. 25% of the completions designed for low flows have had deviations greater than or equal to 50% between the design parameters and the actual parameters. This condition has led to the search for alternatives for intervention and completion of this type of wells. The Service Provider, from the hand of the Operator, implemented a pump called FLEX-ER (extended range pump). This solution allows extending the range of the efficiency cone of the pump from 50BFPD and up to 2900BFPD. This feature helps to mitigate the uncertainty in the available design parameters, keep the pump in the optimal ranges of operation, avoid the up and down wear of the stages, thus increasing the lifetime of the electrosubmersible system. The implementation of this technology has allowed having an ESP equipment available to cover the production needs of the wells in low quality sands of northern plains. It is expected for the next well drilling and reconditioning campaigns, including the standardization of the technology in order to optimize the production processes of Occidental. This paper presentation aims to present the most important technology implementations—follow up and results as well as the impact in field performance. https://streaming.spe.org/implementation-of-extended-range-pump-as-a-solution-for-low-input-wells-success-story-in-llanos-norte

Fiber-optic distributed acoustic and distributed temperature sensing (DAS/DTS) data, supplemented with core analysis from vertical pilot wells, shows that clusters in parts of a stage dominated by pre-existing fractures have significantly more hydraulic fracture activity. In addition, processed fiber-optic data indicates that pre-existing fractures can form near-wellbore leak-off pathways to previous stimulated stages. Both can lead to stimulation and subsequent production inefficiencies.   The authors present conclusions about stage and cluster spacing and the significance of pre-existing natural fractures on stage isolation and fracture efficiency.  This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.   Paper Number: SPE- 209147-MS  Published: 25 January 2022  Authors: Timothy Carr; Ebrahim Fathi; Rob Bohn; Mohammad Faiq Adenan; Liwei Li; Brian Panetta; B.

Our archived 2020-21 event content is now available free to SPE members! Paper Number: SPE-198971-MS Published: 20 July 2020 Authors: Carlos Gómez Real; Oscar Cárdenas Villalobos Since exposure to Volatile Organic Vapors produces serious short- and long-term neurotoxic and hematological effects in individuals, this work focuses on reducing both the incidence and prevalence of occupational diseases associated with exposure to organic vapors by implementing prevention programs. Hygienic measurements are made periodically, the results of which are essential for establishing guidelines for the different controls, thus eliminating or substantially reducing exposure. This study was conducted at different petroleum production fields in the Llanos Orientales basin in Colombia. During the 4 years of studies there have been no cases of incidence or prevalence of associated occupational disease, nor have case studies been detected in the annual occupational medical exams. This shows that the prior engineering designs and implementation of procedures supported with hygienic measurements are the best prevention tools for a major risk in oil production.

    Add to Calendar 01/01/1970 12:00 AM 01/01/1970 12:00 AM America/Los_Angeles In Relentless Pursuit of Offshore Safety: A Privileged Perspective — Derrick O'Keeffe Offshore worker occupational safety may be improving, but less frequent, high consequence events and leading indicators – like major gas releases – are proving stubbornly difficult to drive down. Getting the right information is key to understanding the risks and the available controls for effective risk management. Is there an over-focus on bad-outcome events, and insufficient attention paid to "weak signals"? Are opportunities in data analytics being missed? The concept of "Privileged Perspectives" is introduced; the idea that industry players, stakeholders and governments have access to quantitative and qualitative information in different ways, and can apply this for their specific organisational goals. Perhaps the most powerful use of a regulators' Privileged Perspective is to influence improved safety outcomes. Australia became the world's largest exporter of LNG in 2019 in a technology-led growth. It also has facilities from the 1960s. Against this diverse backdrop, its offshore regulator provides examples of how it has developed and uses its Privileged Perspective, working with industry, to promote risk awareness and control measures. A single event that narrowly avoided a diving fatality led, through a "big data" approach to a global opportunity to reduce risk across countless dynamically positioned vessels. A 500 well study on barrier failures revealed interesting opportunities in consistent, simple reporting and prediction. The way forward? Commitment at the leadership level to greater pooling – at a global level – of Privileged Perspectives derived from safety information, to drive opportunities for safe offshore work. This presentation is from the Distinguished Lecturer 2020-21 season. https://streaming.spe.org/in-relentless-pursuit-of-offshore-safety-a-privileged-perspective-derrick-okeeffe
