Cuttings Transport Efficiency – the key parameter for a successful Coiled Tubing Drilling operation

A small size annulus space, common in coiled tubing drilling operations, is subject to high fluid velocities and turbulent regimes that substantially impact the cuttings transport to surface.

The speaker has investigated the cuttings transport physics in small annulus space as part of his PhD research. He will present and support his findings not only with numerical modelling, but also with laboratory experiments using a flow loop.

The flow loop allows: the testing of different cuttings transport parameters, determination of the the minimum transport velocity, the study of the flow pattern behaviour, and the observation of the Boycott phenomena common in deviated wells. This presentation will provide results and videos of the rarely-observed Boycott phenomena.

Arrow 01/10/2014 October Luncheon - Delivering growth through exploration, innovation and development

With the energy sector playing a key role in a robust Australian economy, oil and gas companies must be committed to the continual development of expertise and knowledge, which will ensure sector growth. Innovative asset development and technological prowess are crucial to the long-term sustainability of oil and gas companies. Those operating in the sector need to constantly evolve, finding more effective and efficient work methods.

This presentation highlights Chevron’s ongoing exploration, subsurface and asset development success in the Carnarvon Basin – home to the Gorgon and Wheatstone projects, which are currently under construction.

It will also delve into Chevron’s unprecedented exploration success story in Australia. The company’s strong acreage position in the Basin will also be discussed, as will its ongoing commitment to local business participation, sustainable communities and developing its people.

Arrow 02/10/2014 YP Specialty Gin Tasting - Frisk Small Bar

The SPE-WA YP committee is proud to welcome you to our very first specialty gin tasting event - with the help of the masters of gin at Frisk Small Bar, Northbridge.

The lovely people at Frisk have opened up their doors to give you an evening showcasing of the history of Gin - how it is made, the usual and unusual pairings when it comes to the classic G&T and what makes this humble spirit so special.

"Northbridge's cosy gin bar is a temple to the juice of the juniper berry" - Timeout Australia

Your ticket will include the opportunity to try 3 unique gin & tonic pairings from the largest selection of gin in Australia (currently at 200 varieties and counting), and a selection of meze platters to share.

Be quick to get your ticket, as this exclusive event will sell out fast. We look forward to sharing the evening with you.
