Bakken Artificial Lift & Production Congress 2013

Whilst hydraulic fracturing techniques are going to remain an important factor in the commercial development of the Bakken, improving completions will be redundant if production directors and managers are unable to optimize production using artificial lift techniques and reduce failures to keep wells online at minimal spend. The highly silty disposition of the Bakken reservoir means the mitigation of scale and salt deposition is also becoming ever more important in ensuring the commercial recovery of crude and liquid rich resources, causing a rise in demand for innovative chemical treatments and corrosion inhibitors. 

The debut Bakken Artificial Lift & Production Congress, is the first congress designed purely for production professionals in the Bakken. With the aim of enhancing production efficiency and reducing costs during one of the most important parts of upstream operations, the congress will bring together senior decision makers and production experts from across the play to share field case studies and practical insights on how to optimize lift and recovery. Presentations will examine different artificial lift techniques being used including ESPs, Gas Lift and Jet Pump and examine techniques for deciding when to pump, how to pump the curve and for how long to pump. Chemical treatments and EOR will also be addressed to improve production and reduce failure rates providing an unparalleled, results-based analytical comparison of Bakken-specific production optimization techniques.

The congress will also deliver updates on gathering, processing and compression facilities in and around the Bakken to ensure flaring can be reduced and production capitalized upon. 

Day 1 will begin with a comparison of ESP, Gas Lift and Jet Pump case studies to determine which yields the highest economic recovery at the lowest failure rate. Production optimization will then be addressed by evaluating techniques for oil and gas separation, pumping through the curve and preventing sand failures before finishing off by examining how producers are attaining the power needed for artificial lift applications to ensure production can be sustained.

Day 2 will start with midstream and E&P gathering and processing updates to identify solutions for expanding Bakken takeaway and compression capacity to capitalize on crude and natural gas production. This will be followed by an analytical breakdown of chemical treatments in relation to corrosion, scaling, salt deposition and H2S. The day will conclude by identifying optimal secondary and tertiary recovery techniques including water and CO2 flooding.
