Today oil companies know they need to digitally transform their operations to stay competitive in an industry challenged to increase efficiencies. Microsoft and Rockwell Automation have joined forces with secure, integrated IIoT solutions to help you digitize, connect and analyze smart assets from the wellhead to the point of custody transfer. Contextualized data and analytics can help improve nearly all aspects of oil and gas production, from maximizing equipment performance, meeting production targets and lowering operating costs to improving operational efficiencies and optimizing production.
Engineered Tubular Solutions: Geothermal Wells
April 25, 2018
Sponsored by: Vallourec
Geothermal project activity is increasing worldwide to take advantage of a sustainable resource to produce electricity and to provide district heating with a reduced environmental footprint. To efficiently extract the heat from the ground, geothermal operators face tough challenges, such as reservoir environment, pressure loads, high temperatures and also economic constraints. Smart solutions and a clever conception of the well are key for the success of a long-lasting geothermal project. Vallourec puts its vast experience as a world leader in tubular solutions to the service of geothermal applications, providing a large range of products and services, which allow our customers to optimize the total cost of ownership of their geothermal assets. This webcast will address how Vallourec can help operators to overcome the challenges of geothermal wells to provide sustainable and efficient solutions.

The drop in oil prices has forced operators to re-evaluate their casing designs to improve payback. With this re-evaluation, Vallourec has taken the opportunity to work with operators to question each aspect of their well designs in order to find ways to achieve higher strength, pressure and production performance with optimized casing designs outside the standard API dimensions. Creating customized diameters, wall thicknesses, along with optimized grades and premium connections has led to significant savings for rig time and steel costs in addition to providing increased performance and production.
