PACE Conference 2024: Sustainability in Plug and Abandonment
The PACE (Plugging & Abandonment Collaborative Environment) network is hosting its next conference in Denmark in the spring of 2024. The main theme will be sustainability and covers:
- Determining CO2 footprint
- Tools for re-purposing wells (e.g. geothermal / CCUS)
- New materials
- Alternative to rig based P&A (including solutions for through tubing logging and dealing with control lines)
Each meeting is two full days for members and one and a half days for non-members. Day one involves a full day of knowledge-sharing presentations and facilitated discussions. The facilitated discussions will include subjects such as case studies, lessons learnt, technology needs and technical standards set around a topic agreed with the steering committee.
In the morning of day two, PACE network members provide the audiences for two Technical Forum sessions run in parallel; an Operators’ forum and Service Providers’ forum. In the operator’s forum the individual presenters have the opportunity to present their technology in front of their end-users only, and make a request for funding, field trials, joint research, or whatever it is they need to progress their product/service to the next stage. In the service providers’ forum, presenters have the opportunity to discuss with the member service providers how they might work together in a manner that enhances their respective capabilities.
Companies wishing to present at these sessions can request a Technical Forum Application Form from OTM. The afternoon of day two continues with knowledge-sharing presentations and facilitated discussions, and concludes with a review of actions and setting the next meeting topic.
