AFES Meeting: 18th September, 2019

September 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for an evening of technical talks, networking and nibbles.

The evening’s talk will be given by Gaia Earth Science’s Guy Wheater.  Guy will present and discuss wireline cable sticking risk assessment & mitigation – a system to enable wireline deployment in challenging and tortuous well bores:

“Stuck cable can be hugely problematic during wireline operations. It can result in cancelled surveys, fishing operations or wiper trips with additional wireline runs and/or pipe-conveyed logging. Guy will discuss the design and development of a cable protection system that predicts and mitigates the risk of cable sticking in challenging wells (e.g. tortuous side tracks with soft or depleted formations). Lessons from ≈ 100 worldwide deployments of wireline standoffs will be shared (99% success rate), covering well design, logging techniques, and the challenges of being an “oil service start-up”.”

We’ll also have a ‘warm up’ session by one of our sponsored students.
