Full Description

A Program to Determine What Is Possible, Practical, and Environmentally Sound

 
Well integrity management has again become a topic of conversation as the oil and gas industry seeks to reassure the public that well construction and operation practices prevent risks of environmental pollution.  One approach has been to consider a third-party investigation and evaluation for both current and developing monitoring methods.  The program being advanced uses a nationally recognized research facility to evaluate early warning methods for failure prediction including those that have been advanced by US national laboratories and non-oil & gas industries. This presentation starts with where state-of-the-art monitoring is now and where it is going.
