2018 Thermal Well Integrity and Design Symposium

November 30, 2018

Members of the Noetic and Volant team participated in the 2018 SPE Thermal Well Integrity and Design Symposium in Banff, Alberta from November 26 to 29. Our team enjoyed the opportunity to connect with members of the thermal well community in a beautiful venue to learn about industry advancements and perspectives, and to contribute to the Symposium as much as possible. Noetic’s Mark Chartier was a member of the Symposium organizing committee, and co-chaired both a technical session on Cement Design and a breakout session on Wellbore Cleanouts and Remediation. A complete agenda is available here, and the various SPE papers prepared for the Symposium are available for purchase on the website.

Mark Chartier and Trent Kaiser delivered a pre-symposium training course on "Considerations for Thermal Well Design". Attendees received an introduction to strain-based design considerations for thermal well tubular systems. Noetic periodically offers one-day and multi-day training courses to provide tubular design insights to engineers new to the thermal well industry.

Noetic staff members delivered two presentations at the Symposium, both associated with SPE papers:

• Dan Dall’Acqua presented our paper SPE 193363, “Unified Basis for Thermal Casing/Connection System Design”.

• Mark Chartier presented our paper SPE 193356, “Addressing Thermal Loading Uncertainties for Liner Design”.

Noetic’s Trent Kaiser also co-authored SPE paper 193362 “SAGD Production Casing Failure Diagnosis and Repair” with representatives from Suncor Energy.
