SAGD Drilling Optimization 2015: Well Placement & Integrity Congress
|Event Date/Time: Feb 17, 2015||End Date/Time: Feb 18, 2015|
otal investment in Canadian oil sands projects during 2014-38 exceeds $514 billion, with production forecasts of 3.7 million b/d in 2020 and 5.2 million b/d by 2030. SAGD presents the greatest opportunity for growth in oil sands production, and with lead E&Ps reporting capital cost projections per SAGD thermal project reaching $440 million, it is now more important than ever to reduce costs whilst maximizing recovery.
At no stage in SAGD is this more important than in drilling, and a sound program is critical to making sure wells are drilled quickly, cheaply and with maximized production results, through optimized well placement and integrity.
It is only through integration of best practices and latest technologies for cementing, casing, ranging, directional drilling and more that operators can reduce costs whilst maximizing ROP as well as ensuring future production and completions are optimized at the drilling stage.
The inaugural SAGD Drilling Optimization 2015: Well Placement & Integrity Congress will be the first dedicated event for drilling professionals, gathering up-to-the-minute case studies from leading E&Ps in SAGD operations to maximize ROP whilst reducing time and cost.
Consisting entirely of operator-led case studies using production data and well failure analysis, each presentation will focus specifically on SAGD operation results and the resulting implications for drilling efficiency maximization.
