The challenges of working at extreme pressures and temperatures will take centre stage at October’s Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association (IcoTA) lunch and learn session with presentations from some of the industries leading figures on well intervention.
Providing the main address will be Runi Joensen of NOV Elmar, who will deliver his paper on NOLA, the industry’s first 30,000 psi rated wireline intervention string.
Designed and built to unprecedented technical standards, the paper will outline the challenges faced and solutions provided by those involved with the project from initial concept through to practical application, as well as detailing the general challenges inherent in working at high pressures and high temperatures (HPHT).
ICoTA Europe chairman Michael Taggart, said: “Working in HPHT environments is very topical within the industry at the moment particularly for those operating in the Gulf of Mexico where the NOLA technology is being applied and where many companies and operators are beginning to explore further offshore and in deeper waters. This presentation will provide an an excellent look at a how an important member of ICoTA is approaching the challenges of wireline intervention and working in HPHT situations.”
