Nisku, AB—Precise Downhole Solutions is serving as a technical expert at this year’s 2021 SPE Thermal Well Integrity and Design Symposium. Highlighting Precise’s reputation as an expert in thermal surveillance, the Alberta-based company is scheduled to teach a course on Fundamentals of Thermal Well/Reservoir Surveillance at the revered event. Taking place in Banff, Alberta, Nov. 29 through 30, the event promises to offer a community for the industry to take steps to improve the collective recovery, efficiency, and longevity of existing and planned thermal wells.
The one-day training course takes place on Nov. 28 and reviews the operational practice on design, field operation of the surveillance method implemented in thermal wells and different technique in monitoring and analyzing the data for real time decision making. It goes on to detail why the surveillance and tracking of heat placement is critical in thermal development for producing heavy oil. This course is for completion engineers, production engineer, reservoir engineer, geologists, and anyone else interested in learning more about thermal well surveillance and the latest advancement in the technology.
The course will be led by Dan Keough, Precise’s Fiber Optic PureLight™ Manager and Michael Melnychuk, the Director of Engineering / R&D. Keough specializes in distributed fiber optic measurement systems, including acoustic, temperature, strain, and quasi-distributed pressure. He is recognized by his academic and industry peers in Europe and the US in this highly specialized and evolving field. Melnychuk specializes in advanced reservoir monitoring and instrumentation deployment techniques. Additionally, as the lead for PDHS’s Research & Development program, he focuses his team in the development of new products to serve the ever-growing thermal heavy oil industry.
