Minimizing Risk through Gravel Pack Design WorkflowContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
This presentation gives an overview of the various sand control techniques before discussing gravel packing in more detail, enabling the audience to better understand the placement techniques and their respective pros, cons and application windows. Real-life examples are used to highlight the importance of modelling in the proper planning and execution of such treatments, providing the audience with a systematic workflow for gravel pack placement technique selection that can be used to minimize placement risk and maximize the likelihood of treatment success.
Future of Petroleum Engineering: Two Perspectives from Two SPE PresidentsContains 1 Component(s)
2020 SPE President Shauna Noonan and 2016 Past President Nathan Meehan present their perspectives and answer live Q&A with student members.
Reducing Excessive Produced Water from CompletionsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
This presentation will explore multiple topics related to excessive produced water defined as water that is not productive in moving oil to the producing well. Major themes include identifying the water source, evaluating candidates for treatment, listing available chemical and mechanical treatment solutions, calculating the economics of reducing water cut, and mentioning gaps in technology that currently exist.
Protecting your Reservoir – How Bacteria can Contaminate, the Introduced Risks and How to Develop a Program to Control ThemContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
This presentation will review the potential sources of contamination during drilling and hydraulic fracturing, including optimal microbial sampling points and analyzation techniques for a comprehensive field audit plan. Furthermore, it will highlight the risks of microbial contamination to the reservoir, initial production and asset integrity by providing field and laboratory evidence on the detrimental effects of unmitigated microbial growth. Ultimately, this work will review the strengths and limitations of currently applied microbial control technologies and provide recommendations on how to develop a cost-effective biocide program to mitigate risk, maximize production, and deliver high-quality hydrocarbons.
Как написать хороший рефератContains 1 Component(s)
В помощь авторам для написания и подачи рефератов на конференции и в журналы SPE предлагает прослушать обучающий вебинар о том, как написать хороший реферат.

Wireline Well LoggingContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to select the appropriate logging tool(s) for evaluating a given reservoir parameter, taking into account operating conditions and limitations, and specify procedures, surface equipment, and auxiliary tools to be employed on a logging job.
Interdisciplinary Data AcquisitionContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to access PDVSA engineering and geoscience databases and identify information that is relevant to the field under study as well as classify information according to discipline and what reservoir parameters it helps to define.
Well Completion and Stimulation
Well Stimulation and Sand ControlContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: diagnose various types of formation damage and identify stimulation candidates, design a matrix acid stimulation treatment based on specific well conditions and reservoir characteristics, specify the materials, equipment and pumping schedule for a hydraulic fracturing procedure, and apply traditional and modern sand control methods to optimize well productivity.
Well Completion OperationsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: prepare the well for open-hole logging operations and take steps to ensure that such operations proceed smoothly, alert the wellsite geologist and service company logging engineer of hole conditions that may require modifications or special precautions in the logging program, assist in planning and carrying out a drill stem test, determine safe operating parameters for running a production casing string, plan and carry out a simple single-stage primary cementing operation, use temperature surveys to determine the top of cement in the casing/hole annulus, and outline the steps involved in preparing the well for final completion and releasing the drilling rig.
Cementing 2Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: determine the volume, displacement and density requirements for cementing a casing string, select the cement additives appropriate to a given job, specify the casing accessories to be use on a primary cement job, outline the steps involved in cementing a string of casing, evaluate the results of a primary or squeeze cementing operation, and calculate the volumes and displacements required to set a cement plug.
Well Completion DesignContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to select the proper sizes and grades of tubulars to maintain the integrity of the wellbore and handle anticipated production, as well as select the downhole casing and tubing accessories needed to optimize production and future well work.
