The Artificial Lift Techniques And Production Optimization Canada 2014, taking place in Calgary on March 25 and 26, is the first congress designed solely for production professionals in Western Canada. The E&P-led congress will deliver a comprehensive technical agenda that seeks to reduce downtime and maximize recovery in Canada's low-perm, shale and tight oil plays such as the Montney, Cardium, Viking, Duvernay, Bakken, Slave Point, and Swan Hills. Production executives, VPs, managers and technical experts will be will evaluate primary production economics, equipment selection and field development to reduce production costs. Operators will be delivering case studies on how to optimize artificial lift and EOR techniques in shale and tight oil wells to lengthen production between workovers and maximize ultimate recovery. Day one will focus on artificial lift selection and execution of ESP, PCP, jet pump, gas lift, and rod pumping in tight oil reservoirs. This will be followed by discussions on pump placement in the deviated section, pump rate and how to optimally manage pressure loss downhole and specifically outline the criteria for selecting the most cost effective, high return artificial lift method. Day two will examine how operators are designing field development for the full lifecycle of production and evaluating EOR potential in tight oil plays. Case studies will examine chemical treatment and separator technology for mitigating operational hazards such as sand and fines migration, wax precipitation and gas locking to lengthen production between workovers and reduce downtime. Operators will outline successful applications of EOR schemes including water and gas flooding.

SAVE $400 Register By Friday December 13, 2013 Last year, CAPP estimated that tight oil The Artificial Lift Techniques And Day one will focus on artificial lift selection production in Alberta would reach 408,000 Production Optimization Canada 2014, and execution of ESP, PCP, jet pump, gas bpd by 2030. This year CAPP increased that taking place in Calgary on March 25 and lift, and rod pumping in tight oil reservoirs. 26, is the first congress designed solely This will be followed by discussions on pump for production professionals in Western placement in the deviated section, pump rate prediction to 703,000 bpd by 2030. Indeed, the influx in Canadian tight oil production is evident with some unconventional oil producers boasting growth in reserves and production as high as 18% and 7% annually Canada. The E&P-led congress will deliver a comprehensive technical agenda that seeks over the past 10 years with increased to reduce downtime and maximize recovery exploitation of oil fields such as the Duvernay, in Canadas low-perm, shale and tight oil Montney and Bakken. However, in order plays such as the Montney, Cardium, Viking, for the full potential of these estimates Duvernay, Bakken, Slave Point, and Swan to be realized, operators need to reduce Hills. Production executives, VPs, managers production costs and plan for the full life and technical experts will be will evaluate cycle of the well; from artificial selection, landing the pump, mitigating sand and gas hazards, to chemical treatments, automation, and EOR. It is believed that with time, primary production economics, equipment selection and field development to reduce production costs. Operators will be delivering and how to optimally manage pressure loss downhole and specifically outline the criteria for selecting the most cost effective, high return artificial lift method. Day two will examine how operators are designing field development for the full lifecycle of production and evaluating EOR potential in tight oil plays. Case studies will examine chemical treatment and separator technology for mitigating operational hazards such as sand and fines migration, wax precipitation and gas locking to lengthen case studies on how to optimize artificial production between workovers and reduce in light, tight oil production. However, in order lift and EOR techniques in shale and tight downtime. Operators will outline successful to achieve this operators must first optimize oil wells to lengthen production between applications of EOR schemes including every stage of the production cycle. workovers and maximize ultimate recovery. water and gas flooding. production costs can be driven below $60/bbl Sponsorship And Exhibition Opportunities Available At The Congress Venue Information Need to generate new sales leads, launch a new product, engage key decision makers, build new future business relationships in key markets, or simply educate the industry about a new product?
