SPE/IOGCC Webinars

The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) Energy Resources, Research and Technology (ERRT) Committee is partnering with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) to produce webinars geared towards the regulatory community. Each webinar addresses one of the technical topics regulators identified as emerging issues of concern in the annual survey conducted by the Energy Resources, Research and Technology Committee.

**These webinars are free to IOGCC-member regulators thanks to the sponsorship of the Environmental Defense Fund and IOGCC. Regulators should contact Kaitlyn Smith at [email protected] to receive the complimentary registration code.

Upcoming Webinars

Finding, Assessing and Abandoning or Repurposing Orphan and Idle Wells

August 16, 2022 from 11:00am - 12:30pm (CT)

The 2021 US Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will allocate some $4.7B to the States, the Federal land management agencies and the Tribes to fund the plugging and remediation of 100,000+ documented orphaned wells in the USA over the next decade. It is, therefore, pertinent to discuss the technologies and best practices that could help with these initiatives.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The use of drone deployed magnetometer surveys to find the exact location of old wells in wooded terrain.
  • The data challenges in assessing the condition of orphan wells and planning for equipment access and re-entry operations, which generally implies that abandonment is a more likely path than re-use.
  • The data management challenges with wells that have repeatedly passed from one Operating Company to another.
  • Evaluating potential opportunities and functional specifications for the re-use of idle wells.

Speakers:

Tessa Sorensen, Professor of Practice, Colorado School of Mines
Robert Lowe, Survey Operations Manager, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management
Jason Simmerman, Engineering Manager, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management
Todd Boesiger (Moderator), Deputy Director, Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission
