The Artificial Lift Techniques And Production Optimization Canada 2014, taking place in Calgary on March 25 and 26, is the first congress designed solely for production professionals in Western Canada. The E&P-led congress will deliver a comprehensive technical agenda that seeks to reduce downtime and maximize recovery in Canada's low-perm, shale and tight oil plays such as the Montney, Cardium, Viking, Duvernay, Bakken, Slave Point, and Swan Hills. Production executives, VPs, managers and technical experts will be will evaluate primary production economics, equipment selection and field development to reduce production costs. Operators will be delivering case studies on how to optimize artificial lift and EOR techniques in shale and tight oil wells to lengthen production between workovers and maximize ultimate recovery.
Day one will focus on artificial lift selection and execution of ESP, PCP, jet pump, gas lift, and rod pumping in tight oil reservoirs. This will be followed by discussions on pump placement in the deviated section, pump rate and how to optimally manage pressure loss downhole and specifically outline the criteria for selecting the most cost effective, high return artificial lift method.
Day two will examine how operators are designing field development for the full lifecycle of production and evaluating EOR potential in tight oil plays. Case studies will examine chemical treatment and separator technology for mitigating operational hazards such as sand and fines migration, wax precipitation and gas locking to lengthen production between workovers and reduce downtime. Operators will outline successful applications of EOR schemes including water and gas flooding.
