Eagle Ford Artificial Lift & Choke Management Congress 2014

Latest reports show that the Eagle Ford is currently producing 1.09 million barrels of oil per day - a staggering number that is even outperforming the Bakken. However, the biggest points of contention surrounding Eagle Ford wells are not how to get them producing large volumes of oil but more critically, how to keep them producing. A recent Wood Mckenzie study shows that most Eagle Ford wells typically drop off between 70 - 80 % in the first year. What is critical to offset these declines and ensure that every well reaches the highest possible net present value, is for Eagle Ford operators to identify the optimal production techniques to increase EURs and extend the life of every well drilled.

Studies have shown that choking a well could improve the long-term recovery between 10-15% over a 30-year period - however, what is the optimum choke strategy to employ? How do you tailor choke strategies to specific pressure regimes across Eagle Ford reservoirs? And alongside that, what artificial lift techniques have proven to yield the highest production rates?  What are the optimum methods to manage sand and avoid costly equipment failures? How can you optimize well spacing to minimize production declines?

In light of so many questions and very little available answers, we are delighted to present for the first time ever, The Eagle Ford Production, Artificial Lift and Choke Management Congress 2014, taking place in Houston on January 29 and 30. This is the first congress designed solely for production professionals in Eagle Ford and will be bringing together E&P experts from across the play, to examine how Eagle Ford Operators are selecting and optimizing artificial lift techniques, well spacing and choke management strategies to manage sharp declines in production and increase EURs.

The two days will see VP's, managers and technical experts in Eagle Ford production, discuss the following topics:


Day 1 will start by examining how a leading Eagle Ford operator has designed their primary, secondary and tertiary recovery strategies to directly increase EUR. It will then move onto several case studies on how operators are selecting between and optimizing different artificial lift techniques such as rod pumps, ESPs, Gas Lifts and Plunger Lifts. The discussion will then move to discuss how to tailor choke strategies to different Eagle Ford reservoirs before looking at optimal strategies for controlling sand.


Day 2 will start by examining different chemical treatments to effectively treat H2S and Paraffin in Eagle Ford wells. It will then discuss the use of automation systems to monitor well sites before exploring the effectiveness of Tertiary recovery methods like Waterfloods and CO2 to extend the life of an Eagle Ford well.  The next section will cover well interference and frac hits- determining the optimum well spacing to maxmize production. Finally, the two days will conclude with a discussion on identifying optimum strategies for designing and investing in surface infrastructure and will finish with a discussion on how operator's are handling waste and salt water disposal
