This 4-day master-class seminar will provide a comprehensive, in-depth introduction to the discipline of well integrity, and discuss in detail how we can achieve it effectively and efficiently during the design and operational phases, as well as after wells are abandoned. We will cover both the engineering barriers and the administrative controls put in place through a Well Integrity Management System (WIMS) and we will review in depth the key concept of barrier, the foundation of NORSOK and ISO standards. The topics will not be limited to man-made materials such as steel and cement: we will also focus on the huge advantages, as well as the challenges, of harnessing creeping formations to help achieve well integrity.
The sessions is focused on well integrity professionals who are encouraged to bring some of their challenges along so we can apply together the techniques and methods discussed in class. The seminar is interactive, participative and hands-on, supported by real life examples and case studies; its open and relaxed atmosphere provides significant opportunities to network and exchange experience with peers and start finding answers to actual challenges in a collaborative setting.
