DEVELOPING IMPROVED PRODUCTION CHEMISTRY MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

WHILE FOCUSING ON DRIVING WELL EFFICIENCIES & COST REDUCTION

9:15 Discuss How To Choose, Apply & Optimize A Production Chemicals Strategy Where Performance & Efficiency Is Maximized

When oil prices dropped like a stone, operators were pushing for efficiencies and cost-reduction. While the price environment is significantly positive, operators are still driving for optimized performance and cost control. There are innumerable chemical treatments on the market, but the operators' chemical related problems have not gone away - Paraffin is still a real problem across the Western Hemisphere. H2S is building up in more places than it has historically, and corrosion and scale continue to wreck havoc in horizontals. Operators, Chemical giants and service companies are now raising some crucial questions, including:

  • How are production chemical programs being run at the moment?
  • What are the lessons learned? What is going well for them?
  • Where are E&Ps headed? What are their biggest problems? How are they planning to become more cost-effective in the way they do things?
  • How are they strategizing to become more efficient and treat wells more effectively?

> With the industry in agreement that the ideal way to look at production chemical optimization is through chain learning, this opening panel discussion sets the foundation for the 2019 conference, designed with a view to help operators and vendors develop better production management strategies.

  • Strategies on how to choose, apply and optimize a production chemicals strategy that is optimized from both an efficiency and cost-control perspective
  • Learn how to make small and step changes in your production chemical program to maximize performance and efficiency
  • Determine new ways to measure, manage and control for Paraffin, H2S, Corrosion, Scale and Halite

> Join operators as they share their production chemical stories, problems and journeys, and hear from technical experts as they share hands-on practical insight on how to manage challenges moving forward.
