Martin Rylance is the Senior Advisor and Engineering Team Lead for the Fracturing and Stimulation Group within the BP Global Wells Organization (GWO). He has worked with BP, their partners and JV’s for more than 28 years, since graduating with a BSc (Hons.) in pure mathematics. During his time with BP, he has held the positions of: Interventions Team Lead with BPX in Bogota, Senior Engineer with TNK-bp in Moscow, and Project Manager with BP in a number of frontier exploration areas.


Martin has been involved in all technical aspects of pumping operations, well-control, well interventions, and pressure services, including hydraulic fracturing, snubbing, stimulation, coiled-tubing, PWRI, and cuttings re-injection. In more recent years he has specialized in the development of tight oil and gas reservoirs, and hydraulic fracturing in tectonic and HTHP environments. He has numerous papers and publications to his name with the SPE, AIME, and various numerical and geological societies. He is an active member of the SPE, ASME Executive Committee, and served as an SPE Distinguished Lecturer in 2008-09 and 2013-14.     

Full Description

This event registration is now FULL. Register to attend the webinar for this event HERE.

Across all oil and gas plays, the rapid evolution of completion and stimulation designs has created enormous opportunities to re-enter and re-stimulate wells that were completed early in the play development. Early under-stimulation (often in the best rock) has resulted in potentially significant reserves being left behind pipe for re-development consideration. This presentation will summarize feedback from a recent SPE ATW that addressed:

  • Selection Process for Re-Fracturing Candidates
  • Well Integrity (Including Regulatory Issues and BLM Language)
  • Deployment Techniques and Intervention Requirements
  • Zonal Isolation Techniques
  • Chemical and Mechanical Diversion
  • Fracture Stimulation Design (in a fractured well).

Reporting on the general trends, experiences and expectations from various operators and service providers, the presentation will summarize and compile the messages that were delivered across the two-day meeting.
