With the 'low hanging fruit' oil and gas fields now largely depleted or developed, operators are increasingly turning their attention to the development of high pressure / high temperature wells. Whilst HPHT fields offer the chance to reach previously untapped reserves, they are expensive to develop and carry particular challenges and risks for oil and gas companies who take them on.

This year’s HPHT Wells Summit will focus on:
•Demonstrating the benefits and pitfalls of various approaches to HPHT projects through real life operator case studies from BG Group, GDF Suez, ENI and Apache Corp
•Exploring pioneering applications of managed pressure drilling in deepwater to enhance operations from BG Group
•How to manage risks when drilling into depleted HPHT reservoirs - explore Safe & Reliable Hydraulic Equipment Operation Under HPHT Conditions with Castrol Offshore
•Assessing how to best ensure long term well integrity on development wells
•Evaluating the latest developments in intelligent completions to ensure efficient and safe operations
•Learning about the latest developments in casing and tubing design
•Relief wells: how operators can ensure they are prepared whilst managing their costs

Plus, learn how the industry is working to:
•reduce electronic equipment damage in HPHT Wells
•reduce and manage well compaction effects from depleted wells
•select the most effective downhole tools to withstand the extreme temperatures in HT wells
•select the most effective and stable drilling fluid for your particular well
•minimise the damaging effects of high temperatures on formation evaluation tools
•ensure wellbore stability while drilling
