Session Chair: George King, GEK Engineering, PLLC, Tiki Island, TX
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.
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.
