Missed The Event


Canadian operators in the WCSB have made rapid advancements in their horizontal operations in 2014 including …

... improving ROP and determining the most cost-effective well lengths.  This year's edition of Canada's only congress 100% dedicated to drilling professionals working in horizontal operations in Canada will exclusively focus only on those experiences in the field from the last few months that have practically delivered cost reduction and time savings. Reflecting the fast-changing landscape of horizontal drilling in the WCSB, this year's agenda has shifted emphasis from last year to focus on:

IMPROVING ROP: Operators are now not only drilling longer horizontal wells, but have worked out how to dramatically increase ROP. This year's agenda will feature exclusive case studies on how improved ROP was achieved based on work done in the field over the last few months

INCREASED FOCUS ON DRILLING FLUIDS: To reflect the rapid breakthroughs in drilling fluid selection and optimization for horizontal drilling in the WCSB, this year's agenda will feature an extended centre-piece section entirely dedicated to drilling fluids, with three brand new case studies providing a play-by-play break down of the optimal drilling fluids for improving ROP in horizontal drilling operations

BRINE DRILLING FLUIDS CASE STUDY: For the first time a leading operator will explain how brine drilling fluids have successfully been harnessed to optimize ROP of horizontally drilled wells in the WCSB and how the associated corrosion issues were managed

ROTARY STEERABLE TOOLS: As operators both small and large have now seen practical success in using rotary steerable tools in the WCSB, they will explain how they ensured the reliability and cost-effectiveness required to make them worth the investment
