Low Risk – No Fear Deepwater Acid Stimulation: New Wells, Old Wells, Producers, InjectorsIncludes Credits Includes a Live Event on 11/07/2019 at 9:30 AM (EST)
The presentation reviews and addresses the real and perceived risks and historical fears in acid stimulation, specifically as they relate to deepwater well completions. Discussed are risk-mitigating, production and injection enhancing fluid stages, acid types, additives, stage options, diversion and placement practices, vessel options, flowback practices, and post-stimulation ramp-up and drawdown management. Supporting case examples are also presented.
Causes for Cement Plug Failures and Proactive Measures to Maximize SuccessIncludes Credits Includes a Live Event on 11/21/2019 at 9:30 AM (EST)
It is quite well known within the Industry that cement plug placement and its success in the first attempt is challenging. There are multitude of reasons for failures, such as improper hole cleaning, lack of adequate support for the cement plug, placement techniques, inadequate volume etc. T

The Dream Well – Closing the Gap in CompletionsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
Horizontals, Multi-zone, Openhole Packers, Barefoot, ICDs, ICVs, Frac Valves, Plug and Perf, Unconventional – Why are there so many lower completion types? There is a better way – all lower completions could be redesigned as a two-trip and intervention capable system.
Using Well Heterogeneity as an Advantage to Designing Stage Specific Diverter StrategiesContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
This talk will discuss a methodology that examines well heterogeneity, and designs the diversion strategy based on the rock properties within each fracturing stage. In addition to rock properties, the method proposed utilizes stress shadows, perforation design, and modified pump schedules to ensure equal cluster stimulation in diverter applications.
Completion Solutions for Multi-Stage Stimulation of Unconventional ResourcesContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
Hydraulic fracturing has been used to stimulate hydrocarbon reservoirs for over 70 years, yet no single optimal methodology has emerged.
Using the revised and improved API19B to enhance your perforating performanceContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
For many years, the benchmark for indicating perforation performance in the well was a surface gun test into concrete. However, it became recognized that shooting an API concrete target at a surface could not be effectively correlated with actual downhole conditions of overburden, reservoir pressure and rock properties.
Using Machine Learning to Optimize Completion DesignContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
As the industry moves to more complex multi-pad, multi-well completion designs, intelligent completion optimization will require more sophisticated algorithms to improve the decision-making process. This is where the use of analytics and AI can directly drive efficiencies to unlock the production potential of unconventional reservoirs specifically during hydraulic fracturing. The growing volume and availability of completion and production data creates a revolutionary situation where building reservoir potential maps, planning pads and optimizing completion designs begins to benefit from the use of AI methods.
