SPE Workshop: Wells and Subsea Systems Integrity
The purpose of this workshop is to provide an open and neutral environment to discuss subsea and well integrity challenges, and to share available solutions and experiences. This convergence of industry professionals will help boost the knowledge of members of the oil and gas industry while also creating networking opportunities for stakeholders.
With the introduction of the subsea and well integrity regulations by the Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum (ANP) in 2015, E&P operators in Brazil are even more challenged to share practices and to enhance discussions on commitments, requirements, and responsibilities over these asset lifecycles.
Some of the current hot topics on well integrity and subsea systems are:
The diversity of onshore, offshore, and subsea wells
The criterion for categorizing potential flow zone
Including methodology to predict if the well is naturally sprung
To define standardized criteria on the timing needed to repair a failed well barrier component
To face issues regarding aged wells
Overview of main Regulations about subsea systems integrity
The latest technologies applied to flexibles risers monitoring and inspections
Artificial Intelligence applied to predictive maintenance systems for subsea equipment
Methodologies to manage the subsea production systems integrity through its lifecycle (project to decommissioning)
Subsea systems integrity assessment for life extension or for reuse
For subsea integrity, it is the ideal moment to share ongoing experiences, current integrity management practices for rigid and flexible pipes, as well as any other subsea equipment.
