20th April 2021 SPE WA Event Industry collaboration – Do we really know how to manage offshore dropped object risk?
SPE WA is proud to present the details of the following event. About the Event Objects dropped accidentally during drilling and subsea intervention operations pose safety and OPEX risks for subsea facilities. An advanced nonlinear solver (FLEXAS) has demonstrated a step change in achieved accuracy in prediction of dropped object risk and the ability to accurately predict a safe handling zone (SHZ) and impact energies even for complex fall trajectories, also enabling the design of simple devices for trajectory mitigation, all validated against blind field accidents and model tests. The ability to accurately predict true dropped object risk leads to significantly improved risk management, reduced risk and costs for operations. This…Find out more »
29th April 2021 SPE WA Technical Evening Meeting – ‘Woodside Sangomar Field – Probabilistic Assessment of Depletion and Overpressure and its Impact on the Drilling Sequence’
SPE WA is proud to present the details of our April technical evening meeting. About the Presentation The Sangomar Field Development, located offshore Senegal, will consist of 23 wells over stacked reservoirs, with horizontal lengths up to 1500 m. Oil production and water injection will commence during the drilling campaign. Therefore, the reservoir pressure in the wells executed post start-up may be inflated, depleted, or both, reducing the available mud window and impacting the drillability. In this presentation, we will describe the process of identifying vulnerable wells by a combination of a deterministic borehole stability assessment of mud weight windows and a probabilistic well-by-well analysis of reservoir pressure at the…Find out more »
24 June 2021 SPE Distinguished Lecturer Webinar on Subsurface Analytics: Digital Transformation of Reservoir Management with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
SPE WA are proud to present the details of 24 June 2021 SPE Distinguished Lecturer Webinar. Webinar registration: SPE REGISTRATION LINK located HERE. About the Presentation Subsurface Analytics is an alternative to traditional reservoir modeling and res. management. Positively influencing subsurface related decision making is the most important contribution of any new technology. Subsurface Analytics is the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI&ML) in Reservoir Engineering, Characterization, Modeling, and Management. Applicable to both conventional and unconventional plays, Subsurface Analytics goes far beyond the traditional statistical algorithms that use only production data and fail to take into consideration the important field measurements such as well trajectories, well logs, seismic,…Find out more »
The SPE-WA section is proud to open ticket sales for the 2021 petroleum industry ball event (Saturday 24th July). This is the third year where we have joined forces with the Petroleum Club of WA (www.petroleumclub.org.au) to bring you an event that will be sure to exceed anything previously hosted (even the previous joint balls). This social opportunity brings representatives from all aspects of our oil and gas industry, together for the most prestigious event on our industry calendar; an evening of elegance, fabulous food and wine, and dazzling entertainment. This is a black tie event with a "Steampunks" theme, where you'll be walking the red carpet in style as you enjoy pre-dinner drinks, floor show…Find out more »
