Optimising production and costs by water treatments and handling

9:00 am - 9:30 am Assessing strategies to improve the management of produced water to optimise costs and production

  • Understanding maturing reservoir characteristics and the need to control the production of produced water
  • Identifying key challenges involved in treating and handling water being generated to optimise costs and reduce water usage and disposal
  • Examining short and long term fixes for managing and controlling produced water

9:30 am - 10:00 am Evaluating approaches to successfully managing sand in treating produced water

Prof Peter King - Professor of Petroleum Engineering, Imperal College London
  • Best practices in sand handling to meet disposal requirements and effective sand production monitoring techniques and tools
  • Management of desandling hydrocyclone and techniques for easy transportation of sand
  • Sand handling in wellhead, liquid phase and in-separators for easy lifting

Prof Peter King

Professor of Petroleum Engineering
Imperal College London

10:00 am - 10:30 am Identifying optimal technologies for injecting produced water to enhance recovery

  • Applications of reinjecting produced water into reservoirs for enhancing recovery from reservoir and disposal
  • Determining the right reservoir for injection of produced water depending on characteristics of reservoir and produced water content
  • Best practices involved in optimal injection of produced water to ensure minimum impact on reservoir structure using right treatment tools

10:30 am - 11:00 am Refreshments break and networking

11:00 am - 11:30 am Identifying the latest technologies and strategies in handling produced water for production optimisation

  • Implementing well planned strategies to handle and treat produced water to avoid economical and environmental impact
  • Latest methodologies, technologies, and latest tools in projection and characterisation of produced water
  • Learn how to assess the right process in produced water management and the right mix of hardware and software

11:30 am - 12:00 pm Evaluating produced water desalination technologies and their applications for optimising and controlling

  • Implement an effective short, long and medium term strategy in optimal handling of produced water post production period
  • Analyse the new advancements in desalination of produced water for reinjections and reuse to save costs, space and government intervention
  • Develop competent produced water management systems to optimise production and cost

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Predicting efficiency of corrosion inhibitors of carbon steel in seawater

  • Addressing the issue of efficiency of inhibitors in seawater and its effect on managing produced water
  • Analysing measures of predicting corrosion inhibitor efficiency and its implications
  • Discussing the role of corrosion mitigation in effective produced water management

12:30 pm - 1:00 pm Panel discussion: Evaluating new water treatment strategies for water shut off

  • Comparing mechanical and chemical treatment technologies and methodologies for effective produced water treatment
  • Determining the opportunities in implementing the right water shut off treatment tools and equipment
  • Identifying the differences in technologies in different wells and reserves depending on characteristics and implementing the right tools for handling water produced

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Networking lunch break

2:00 pm - 2:00 pm End of focus day

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may
subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with
a speaker with equivalent insight.
