  • July SPE OKC Luncheon

    Jul 20, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM (CT)
    July SPE OKC Monthly Luncheon Will Rogers Theater, July 20th, 2017, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Considering Transitioning from Gas Lift to Increase Drawdown? How Mitigating Slug Flow Results in Significant Increase in Multiple Well NPV's Presented by Jeff Saponja, CEO, HEAL Systems Abstract Production challenges in horizontal wells are primarily caused by slug flow behaviour from the horizontal. Slug flow has resulted in a predicament for Production Engineers, where attempts to increase production drawdown have compromised downhole pump reliability. In response, a system solution was developed to mitigate slug flow before fluids enter the downhole separator and pump. Slug flow mitigation enhances rod pumping, allowing it to be more effective and efficient, offering a solution for low cost OPEX to reliably maximize drawdown. This presentation analyzes multiple Permian Basin installations of a slug flow mitigation solution where transitioning from gas lifting to rod pumping resulted in a production improvement. It explores requirements for intermediate artificial lift systems, challenges achieving production forecasts, managing declines, slug flow consequences and solids production mechanisms, and impacts from horizontal wellbore trajectories. The presentation compares recent long-term, case studies that demonstrate the impact of slug flow mitigation on well production economics. It offers insights into long-term NPV benefits achieved by transitioning from gas lifting to rod pumping.   Biography As Chief Executive Officer of HEAL Systems., Jeff Saponja is an entrepreneurial leader in the oil and gas industry. It was during Jeff’s tenure at TriAxon Oil Corp. that he and his team at TriAxon were able to identify the root cause of horizontal artificial lift challenges. Their drive for innovation resulted in the design and development of the HEAL System™ and the subsequent creation of Production Plus Energy Services Inc., now a joint venture with

  • 2017 Oklahoma Young Professionals Energy Forum

    Jul 27, 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM (CT)
    The Oklahoma Young Professionals Energy Forum is one of the first multidisciplinary events uniting the people who will build the future of Oklahoma's energy industry. The Oklahoma City Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is joined by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) , the Geophysical Society of Oklahoma City (GSOC) , the Oklahoma City Association of Professional Landmen (OCAPL) , the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association (OIPA) Future Leaders program, the Oklahoma City Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) , and the Oklahoma City Association of Petroleum Lease and Title Analysts (OCAPLTA) for the fourth annual Energy Forum! Our goal is to engage young professionals, working in all disciplines of our industry, on topics that currently play a role in our professional world. The topics have been selected with the hopes of enhancing knowledge of the business and developing a successful career; the panel discussions and exposition have been designed to engage our audience and encourage open discussion and networking. This event is open to all interested professionals, but is designed for young professionals working in the Oklahoma energy industry; this includes local interns and college students studying a petroleum-related field. The 2017 Energy Forum will be held on Thursday, July 27th, at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club in Nichols Hills. We hope to see you there! This Forum is enabled by the generous support of our industry and corporate sponsors. Sponsors have a wonderful opportunity to build relationships with young professionals and industry leaders, raise awareness for their organization, brand, and product, as well as support the continued development of the energy industry in Oklahoma.
