The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) hosted the second edition of the Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP) workshop in Oman final week, below the patronage of His Excellency, Salim Al Aufi, Undersecretary, Ministry of Oil and Gas, Oman. The workshop welcomed 98 delegates from 39 organizations and 17 nations.
The opening day began with a particular keynote address by His Excellency, Salim Al Aufi, who as component of his speech stated “We must do more with less. During the low oil times, we drilled more wells with less rigs by focusing on waste and reducing non-productive time. Furthermore, alliances with contractors and suppliers help develop companies and generate in-country value. We must learn from the times of the low oil price and continue to do more with less for a sustainable future”. The agenda also integrated two panel sessions exactly where panellists addressed subjects such as Lower for Longer and In-Country Value/Local Content: Towards Effective Implementation.
During 7 technical sessions, the workshop brought with each other topic-matter professionals and market leaders who discussed requirements and practices, present technical challenges and mitigations, technological advancements, surveillance and optimisation, operational efficiency, and the electrical energy aspect on ESPs, amongst other essential subjects, enabling efforts to maximise ESP lifting worth and excellence.
