The Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA) European Chapter is set to host industry experts at a one-day seminar of technical presentations in Stavanger later this month.

Among the 12 presentations, Expro will discuss its AX-S system, a unique remotely-operated intervention system. The technology is transforming the way in which oil and gas companies can access and intervene on their subsea well assets at any depth down to 10,000ft.

In addition, last year’s Innovation Award winner, Matthew Billingham of Schlumberger, will discuss the company’s slickline conveyed perforating, pipe recovery and plug setting services.

The company will also describe how the use of an enhanced telemetry technology platform increases the chance of success during an intervention, while Petroleum Technology Company AS (PTC) will showcase its wellhead VR lubricator and toolkit.

Other highlights include Statoil, which will present its Kvitebjorn case study, detailing lessons learned following the completion of its first successful HP/HT coiled tubing milling job in the Norwegian continental shelf. Weatherford will discuss the retrieval and reinstallation of a large diameter single trip straddle system.

The latest in a series of events held by ICoTA to date, the 7th Well Intervention Seminar will be held at the Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel in Stavanger on May 31. A networking reception will follow the technical programme, with a formal dinner in the evening.

ICoTA Europe chairman, Callum Munro, said: “This year’s seminar consists of an exciting programme of technical presentations.

“The event is a vital platform in bringing together international specialists from around world with experience in similar operating environments to discover, debate and discuss the most innovative solutions to continue driving forward the successful development of the oil and gas industry.

“Year upon year, ICoTA Europe always receives a very positive response to this event and we are confident that once again we will provide a detailed insight into the issues facing all well intervention disciplines.

“We are expecting a healthy turnout of members and non members at the event and I would encourage anyone with an interest in the subjects being discussed or an involvement in the sector to attend.”

ICoTA Europe will also host its latest lunch and learn session this month, to be held on May 15 at the Marcliffe Hotel, Aberdeen, will see Cameron and Oilenco present on the topic of subsea well applications. For more information, please visit http://www.icota-europe.com/events2.cfm?news_ID=132.
