The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) are joining forces to co-host a special two-part workshop on High-Temperature Well Cementing and Integrity. Part I of this workshop will be held virtually, on September 14 - 16, 2020.
Geothermal wells experience high temperatures at very shallow depths and are required to cement casing across the entire length of each casing string set in the well. The large temperature variations over the lifecycle of thermal oil recovery wells, and the very high temperatures of high-pressure/high-temperature (HP-HT) oil & gas wells drilled to ever greater depths, continue to push cement selection and placement technologies. All of these environments pose unique challenges to successful well completion. Cementing is crucial to ensure proper well integrity for the life of production and injection wells in these HT applications.
Part I’s new virtual experience opens the world of geothermal up to a wider range of industry professionals who can now attend the workshop without having to leave their home or office. The in-depth workshop will share the latest technical innovations, advancements, and best practices in geothermal. All sessions are designed to maximize the exchange of information and ideas between attendees and presenters through technical presentations followed by interactive Q&A periods. In addition, GRC’s and SPE’s partnership provides a unique opportunity to provide this educational workshop sharing their experiences, technologies, technical procedures, and best practices on this important aspect of well completion with their respective industries.
We hope you will Join GRC and SPE for Part I of the High-Temperature Well-Cement and Integrity Workshop!
