Welltec sponsored the April gathering of the SPE Copenhagen section inviting members to the charming Copenhagen Admiral hotel and conference center, where the members enjoyed two highly interesting presentations and a unique opportunity to meet some of the minds behind the Welltec Annular Barrier (WAB™). This is a novel, completion solution recently launched by Welltec at IADC in Amsterdam, as a first step in the developing the Flex-Well™ concept.
After a cocktail reception, Paul Hazel, VP Completion Solutions began the evening by presenting the vision of the Flex-Well™, a simple, flexible completion style for retaining access to the sand face while building simple wells or multi-lateral, extended reach wells.
Following dinner, Henrik Nicolaisen of Total E&P Denmark took the participants through project to explore opportunities for shale gas in Denmark, sharing some of the local challenges as well as global successes for perspective.
The evening offered interesting, thought-provoking knowledge sharing and a good opportunity for networking with industry peers. The turnout exceeded all expectations and Welltec would like to thank all who joined us at the event, making the evening a great success.
