Session 2: Thermal Isolation Technology

Thermal stimulation provides unique challenges when considering zonal isolation. Large temperature excursions in operating steam injection and production wells necessitate a fit for purpose solution for maintaining a seal between the thermally stimulated zone and overburden formations. Ensuring long-term zonal isolation is traditionally done using cement which must isolate gassy and unconsolidated overburden formations despite changes in chemistry and severe mechanical loads imposed by casing expansion. This session will provide a view into novel techniques and technologies for improving wellbore conformance and long-term-post-production isolation in thermal wells.

Session 3: Near-Surface Casing Corrosion on Thermal Wells

This session is dedicated to highlight the importance of monitoring and mitigating near-surface casing corrosion on Thermal wells. Presence of condensate water, oxygen, high temperature and salts create the perfect environment for casing corrosion. Utilizing techniques like Casing pressure tests, logging tools, and excavation provided evidence that in many cases corrosion occurs within a few years of the well's life. These studies share experiences evaluating various high-temperature coating systems, liquid inhibitors, and also the effect of OCTG material selection using various corrosion resistant alloys as Cr13 and Inconel vs conventional carbon steel to provide protection on these thermal wells. Our presenters will shed more lights on Corrosion failure patterns, film characteristics and mechanisms that were investigated by surface analysis techniques to determine the corrosion behavior. Please join us to learn more about these safe, environmentally friendly, self-healing and cost effective solutions.
