Technical Program

Wednesday, 15 February 0900 to 1200

Sand Control I

Session Chairpersons David Norman, Chevron Alison Foo, Halliburton This session will cover sand consolidation, horizontal well cleanup, and frac-pack experiences, as well as experimental work on soft rock fracturing. Wednesday, 15 February, 0900 to 1200

Damage in Tight Sands and Shales

Session Chairpersons Michael Economides, University of Houston Salvatore Luppina, Eni The effect of formation damage in tight sands and shale is often underestimated because of the assumptions that low rock permeability prevents deep invasion of damaging fluids and that large fracture conductivity is achievable with stimulation treatments. Nevertheless, it is because of such low permeability scenario and/ or largely over estimated fracture conductivity that formation damage has to be carefully addressed in this kind of reservoir. This session will provide new perspectives on how to prevent and evaluate the extent of formation damage, presenting field experiences and lab testing studies. Wednesday, 15 February, 0900 to 1200

Water Control

Session Chairpersons Mahmoud Asadi, ProTechnics Pacelli Zitha, Delft University of Technology Water production is economically challenging. This session covers the related problems and remedies.

Session Chairpersons Syed Ali, Schlumberger Alberto Casero, BP Papers in this session explore HF/formic acid stimulation, numerical simulation of acidizing process, high temperature corrosion inhibitors, emulsified acid, nanofluid, asphaltene removal, and ecofriendly demulsifier. Wednesday, 15 February, 1400 to 1700

Poster I

Session Chairperson Ali Ghalambor, Oil Center Research International Poster sessions offer an interactive environment to promote valuable discussions. Thursday, 16 February, 0830 to 1130

Sand Control II

Formation Damage I

Session Chairpersons Pavel Bedrikovetsky, University of Adelaide Claas Van Der Zwaag, Statoil This session will cover impairment due to fines migration, sulphate scaling, micro organisms, and induced rock stress. The papers present the formation damage prevention, removal, and mitigation. Wednesday, 15 February, 1400 to 1700

Drilling and Completions

Session Chairpersons Alfred Jennings, Enhanced Well Stimulation Carl Montgomery, NSI Technologies Drilling and completion fluids are the main source of induced formation damage. Using a proper approach in their selection and utilization is critical in preventing excessive formation damage. The papers in this session will address this issue, presenting how the damage occurs, and how it can be practically managed.

Carbonate Acidizing and Fracturing

Session Chairpersons Leonard Kalfayan, Hess Jakob Monberg, Maersk Oil With the proliferation of developments offshore, long horizontal and complex well completions, and more extreme temperature and pressure conditions, the challenges of maximizing success in carbonate stimulation are greater today than ever before. This session presents new insights in carbonate acid fracturing, challenging environments facing operational limitations, and case examples of custom and nonconventional stimulation approaches in different completion types.


Technical Program (as of 7 October 2011)

Thursday, 16 February, 0830 to 1130 Thursday, 16 February, 1330 to 1630

Horizontal and Multilateral Wells

Session Chairpersons Michael Byrne, Senergy Jean Noel Furgier, Total Economical development of complex fields is often made possible by drilling horizontal and multilateral wells.

This session will discuss challenges and solutions dedicated to horizontal wells, and some field cases will be shown. Thursday, 16 February, 1330 to 1630

New Developments and Field Experiences

Session Chairpersons Eddy Martch, Shell Paul McElfresh, Frac Tech Services This session provides insight into novel solutions of issues related to wellbore displacements, scale inhibition techniques, removal of formation damage with nanotechnology, and mitigation of condensate banking. It will also cover improvement of waterflood sweep efficiency, evaluation of stimulation diversion via fiber optic technology, and the completion of ultrahigh-rate gas wells. Thursday, 16 February, 1030 to 1400

Well Stimulation II

Session Chairpersons Harold Brannon, Baker Hughes Lewis Ledlow, ConocoPhillips Papers within the session explore fracturing fluids and properties, new proppant applications, treating pressure interpretation, and a model for production optimization. Thursday, 16 February, 1330 to 1630

Poster II

Session Chairperson Ali Ghalambor, Oil Center Research International Poster sessions offer an interactive environment to promote valuable discussions.

Formation Damage II

Session Chairpersons Pavel Bedrikovetsky, University of Adelaide Allan Twynam, BP This session will cover impairment due to rock and proppant pack compression and stress, drilling fluids, micro organisms, and induced rock stress. The papers present formation damage prevention, removal, and mitigation.
