Facilities Design SAGD 2014
Venue: The BMO Centre
|Event Date/Time: Dec 09, 2014||End Date/Time: Dec 10, 2014|
Although planned capital expenditure in Alberta's oil sand industry is estimated upwards of $20 billion in 2014, the economics of SAGD operations are becoming increasingly strained in Western Canada with many projects going over schedule and budget due to increasing supplier costs and execution challenges. E&P companies are striving to meet high demands in terms of productivity, yet the economics of operating existing and commissioning new SAGD projects is being threatened due to rising costs.
DESIGNING AND EXECUTING FACILITIES WITHIN BUDGET
In light of what is currently happening in the industry, it has become imperative for the Alberta Oil Sands Industry to find a solution that can combat the rising costs of facilities design and process engineering. Facilities design is clearly a cost-critical part of SAGD, and right now, facilities and process engineering managers have the opportunity to drive down these costs by pulling together to exchange design best practices, construction plans and equipment selection case studies.
To this end, the first Facilities Design SAGD 2014 congress is coming to Calgary on December 9-10. Presenters at the solutions-packed congress will examine best practices in key well site areas including equipment selection processes and optimal designs for oil/water separation, water treatment, steam generation and gathering facilities with the overall goal of finding and developing methods to reduce the costs and construction times of developing In Situ Oil Sands facilities.
Expert industry professionals from leading E&P companies will be speaking on the key topics within facilities design to improve the run times and costs of SAGD. Facilities being covered include:
- Steam Generation Facilities
- Oil/Water Separation Facilities
- De-Oiling Facilities
- Water Treatment Facilities
- Gathering Facilities
- Pad Vs Centralized Facilities
