Eagle Ford Production, Artificial Lift and Choke Management Congress 2014
Venue: The Westin Galleria Houston
|Event Date/Time: Jan 29, 2014||End Date/Time: Jan 30, 2014|
Latest reports show that the Eagle Ford is currently producing 1.09 million barrels of oil per day - a staggering number that is even outperforming the Bakken. However, the biggest points of contention surrounding Eagle Ford wells are not how to get them producing large volumes of oil but more critically, how to keep them producing. A recent Wood Mckenzie study shows that most Eagle Ford wells typically drop off between 70 - 80 % in the first year. What is critical to offset these declines and ensure that every well reaches the highest possible net present value, is for Eagle Ford operators to identify the optimal production techniques to increase EURs and extend the life of every well drilled.
Studies have shown that choking a well could improve the long-term recovery between 10-15% over a 30-year period - however, what is the optimum choke strategy to employ? How do you tailor choke strategies to specific pressure regimes across Eagle Ford reservoirs? And alongside that, what artificial lift techniques have proven to yield the highest production rates? What are the optimum methods to manage sand and avoid costly equipment failures? How can you optimize well spacing to minimize production declines?
In light of so many questions and very little available answers, we are delighted to present for the first time ever, The Eagle Ford Production, Artificial Lift and Choke Management Congress 2014, taking place in Houston on January 29 and 30. This is the first congress designed solely for production professionals in Eagle Fordand will be bringing together E&P experts from across the play, to examine how Eagle Ford Operators are selecting and optimizing artificial lift techniques, well spacing and choke management strategies to manage sharp declines in production and increase EURs.
