“Roger joined the oilfield over 20 years ago after graduating from the University of the West Indies with Bachelor of Science Honors  in Electrical and Computer Engineering. 


Roger now works as the Well Placement Technical Specialist for BP’s global wells organization western hemisphere operations.   Since joining BP, he  has worked on several Process Safety Workflows related to Real Time Anti-Collision Management and a systematic approach to Relief Well Trajectory Design.


Roger worked for a major service company before joining  BP in 2011 and has held several technical and managerial positions and worked in several countries including Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, India and the United States Gulf of Mexico.


A  member of SPE for the last 15 years, Roger has authored and presented over a dozen technical papers on a wide variety of Drilling Optimization topics.  A few of his SPE publications have been peer reviewed by SPE.   In 2014 Roger received the SPE North America Gulf Coast Regional Drilling Engineering Award which recognizes those who help achieve SPE’s goals for technology dissemination. 


The most recent paper Roger delivered was at the SPE/IADC 2015 Drilling Conference  in London:- SPE-173097-MS, A Guide to Relief Well Trajectory Design using Multidisciplinary Collaborative Well Planning Technology.  Roger also will  present this paper and the challenges involved in designing relief wells from a well placement prospective  at the SPE-GCS Drilling Study Group on September 9, 2015.

Full Description

 

To meet the new regulatory requirements, many oil and gas companies are looking for ways to produce reliable relief well plans without generating intercept plans for every casing section.

In the GoM, BP has been working to make the relief well planning process more transparent, efficient, and consistent through (1) a systematic, repeatable relief well planning methodology that establishes a standard range of boundary conditions and (2) a specialized set of engineering tools that enable teams across the organization to generate similar results.
