Artificial Lift Production Optimization Canada 2015

Containing 1.7 billion barrels of tight oil and 4,995 trillion cubic feet of shale gas yet to be recovered, the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin holds huge revenue opportunity for oil companies, even in the low price crude climate; so long as production and artificial lift costs are managed properly.

It is now down to Production VPs, Managers and Engineers to ensure reserves are recovered at the lowest possible cost and with limited well downtime to keep strong production flowing throughout the lifetime of the well.

Current commodity prices are of course the main driving force behind cost-centric strategies, however optimizing production will increase margins even more dramatically when prices rebound.


The 2015 edition of this operator led congress focuses on artificial lift and secondary recovery techniques across the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. This year's congress hones in on overcoming the WCSB-specific challenges of high gas rates, H2S, paraffin wax and sand production. Ultimately driving this year's agenda is cost and new technologies all delivered by key E&P operators in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.

Key cost-reduction strategies being discussed by E&P speakers include:

  • Identifying in which areas and under what circumstances switching lift types will help maximize per-barrel margins during the period of low oil prices
  • Identifying cost saving opportunities at different stages of production, from lift to chemical treatment
  • Identifying which production and lift technologies are helping ensure maximum drainage at lowest cost and consequently, high profit wells

Case studies demonstrating how to achieve these goals will be delivered on the following key topic areas:

ARTIFICIAL LIFT SELECTION : Comparing PCPs, ESPs, jet pumps and gas lift systems to establish which have the greatest potential to decrease capital costs whilst guaranteeing desired production rates

PRODUCTION FACILITY DESIGN : Evaluating best design practices for multi-well pad oil production facilities in the WCSB to reduce both capital and long term operating costs to ascertain long-term operation cost reductions

DUVERNAY CASE STUDY : Presenting a case study on how an operator has managed to maximize recovery rates in the Duvernay while minimizing failure rates and downtime

WATER FLOODING : Showcasing a successful water flood pilot to establish if and under which circumstances the return on capital justifies the investment

REDUCING FAILURE RATES AND DOWNTIME : Examining optimal best practices for mitigating key risks to production including gas, H2S, sand, scaling and paraffin wax to minimize downtime and reduce well costs

Missed The Congress?




This Year's Event Has Been Reformulated To Focus On:

COST REDUCTION FOCUS: As the barrel oil has fallen below $60, it is not just the drilling and completions part of the operations that needs cut back - find out what strategies have operators employed to trim costs on the production side

100% OPERATOR LED: By presenting an agenda that is 100% designed by E&P professionals working in shale gas and tight oil production, this congress is completely up-to-date on need to the know artificial lift and EOR solutions

WCSB SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS: Different basins have different challenges. This agenda has been created specifically to address the high gas rates, H2S, paraffin wax and sands that can cause pump downtime and increase costs in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB)
