Glen Benge recently retired from ExxonMobil where he served as a Senior Technical Advisor and assisted with the oversight of the cementing and wellbore isolation technologies for the global drilling operations.  He has 35 years of experience associated with all aspects of oil field cementing and has authored numerous papers and texts on all aspects of cementing design and application.

Full Description

The national debate has rightfully turned from fracturing to one of wellbore isolation.  In response to the debate, regulators have adopted and proposed a wide array of rules in an attempt to address the concerns over hydrocarbon leakage.  Some rules are quite prescriptive and may not address to true goal of the regulation which is to assure the wells do not leak hydrocarbons into water supplies.

Assuring both regulators and the public the well has been built correctly, and completed and operated properly are key areas of our license to operate.  The presentation will take a brief look at current regulations within the US, the role of API standards related to wellbore isolation and steps to be taken to assure the goal of “Build It Right” is met.
