Throughout the year, SOER hosts valuable workshops for industry professionals. These workshops are currently being held via Zoom on a variety of industry-related topics.

Professional Development Hour (PDH) credits will be offered for all workshops.

Upcoming Workshops

Dynamometer Pump Card Analysis and Troubleshooting 

This dynamometer analysis and troubleshooting presentation for sucker rod produced wells will provide insight into the analysis of wells by using dynamometer cards, with a particular focus on using the diagnostic downhole pump card. Information displayed in surface and pump dynamometer cards plays a critical role in diagnosing issues in sucker rod lifted wells. The presentation explores various aspects of dynamometer card analysis, emphasizing the identification of problems such as incomplete pump fillage, plunger motion irregularities, mechanical friction, and the impact of gas compression within the pump chamber.

Plunger Lift 101

A plunger lift is an economical form of artificial lift that utilizes a well’s own pressure and gas energy to efficiently remove fluids from a well bore. By utilizing the wells own energy, a plunger acts as an interface between the accumulated liquids and gas in a tubing string creating an efficient seal that allows the plunger to surface multiple times a day removing fluids and allowing a well to produce intermittently or continuously without the need for costly downhole equipment. Plungers can assist with keeping a well clean of solids such as paraffin, scale, sand, and hydrates without the need for costly chemicals. Also, plunger lift systems can be maintained by operators and staff without the need for workovers like other forms of artificial lift.

During the presentation, the audience will learn plunger lift system basics, gas requirements, pressure requirements, plunger lift types, operating parameters, and how a plunger works.

Facility Design

The design and operation of oil and gas production facilities is changing fast to meet the demands of new regulations and recommended practices from industry associations. Additionally, new regulations and industry standards are redefining the design and installation of equipment.

All facility design topics in this workshop will have a common theme focused on the promotion of cost-effective fabrication and construction strategies and techniques within the engineering design process. The following topics will be reviewed and discussed:

·  Modular facility design concepts for simple layouts, expansion, and prefabrication.

·  Regulatory compliant closed vent system designs for onsite liquid storage.

·  Application comparisons of bulk and test separation trains versus well specific separation trains.

·  Facility piping design specifications per applicable industry standards and recommended practices in relation to fluid service types.

As always, continuing education credits will be awarded for attendance. Don’t miss out. Sign up today!
