Paper presented at the SPE/AAPG Africa Energy and Technology Conference, December 5–7, 2016
Paper Number: SPE-AFRC-2573582-MS
... ABSTRACT In the midst of aggressive anti-drilling campaigns by environmental organizations and well-publicized complaints by citizens unaccustomed to oil and gas operations, rigorous studies of unconventional oil and gas development show that there are no widespread or systemic impacts...

Paper presented at the SPE/AAPG Africa Energy and Technology Conference, December 5–7, 2016
Paper Number: SPE-AFRC-2582661-MS
... ABSTRACT The current low oil price has resulted in several continuous improvement drives particularly focused on capital efficiency. With over 60 producing oil fields and approximately 700 producing wells, some of which date back to the 60s, work over operations in Shell Petroleum Development...

... integrity. A little bit more than half of the failures can be attributed to operational challenges (pump failure, cement contamination), or design oversights (cement recipe, centralizers). However there are still cement failures with perfect design and field execution. These failures typically exhibit some...
