ICoTA event looks at options for managing well integrity

Posted on 12/Apr/2015

The effective long-term management of oil and gas wells through timely monitoring of tubing and casing integrity will be the focus of discussion at a lunchtime event held this month by leading oil and gas body, the Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association’s European Chapter (ICoTA).

Chris Rodger, Business Development Manager Europe for TGT Oilfield Services, will talk about management of well integrity using a technique called magnetic imaging defectoscopy. The technique can be used to effectively detect and quantify corrosion of tubing and casing wells through the generation of high-energy electromagnetic pulses.

The session will be held on Tuesday 21st April at The Holiday Inn, Westhill, beginning at 11:45am for 12pm, finishing at 1.45pm. It is one of a series of lunch and learn sessions being held by the European chapter over the course of the year.

ICoTA Europe chairman Scott Mitchell of Omega Completion Technology said: “This presentation will look at an interesting new technique which can detect and monitor corrosion without the need to pull the tubing, descale or dewax the wellbore or change the wellbore fluid.

"As an industry body ICoTA has a role to play in supporting the sharing of knowledge and information which could benefit the industry. We are particularly interested in new ideas for cost-reduction and time-savings, so I’m looking forward to hearing more about this technique."

The Lunch and Learn session is open to members and non-members of ICoTA.
