George E. King is a Registered Professional Engineer in Oklahoma and Texas with 48 years oilfield experience starting with Amoco 1971. He researches and consults on well interventions, fracture driven interactions, well failures, and unconventional resources completions, stimulations and production. He is a well engineering advisor for Viking Engineering and works special projects through his own consultancy GEK Engineering PLLC.

He has written and/or presented over 90 papers and book chapters on well integrity, stimulations, perforating, sand control, well integrity, well-work and production. His education includes a BS in Chemistry (Oklahoma State), a BS in Chem. Eng. and a MS in Petroleum Engineering (University of Tulsa).

He also taught senior and graduate level petroleum engineering evening courses in well completion and fracturing as an adjunct professor for eleven years at University of Tulsa

Well Integrity:  The Best-Practice Basics, Critical Inspection Points, and Early Warning Signs
Wednesday, October 9th

Well Integrity, either in older wells or new wells that are to be fracture stimulated, is dependent on design and application suitable to the geologic conditions along with stimulation and production requirements. Well integrity also depends on a continuing need for evaluation of the well conditions that can lead to deterioration of the well materials or the isolating barriers.

– Basic Well Design and Construction
– Well Failures & Learnings
– Well Integrity Testing

This talk will identify common problem areas, visual inspection areas of the well at any point of its life, chemical tests to spot early corrosion potential, and other warning signs that effective isolation is being threatened.
