The inspiration for holding this Forum came from the North Sea Operators Well Productivity Network, a collaboration of Operator representatives established in 2015 and specialising in reservoir drilling and completion fluids, formation damage and general well productivity

The Network currently lists some 160 members from 25 North Sea Operators and is managed by a steering committee co-chaired by Equinor (Niall Fleming), BP (Dave Knox), Shell (Alistair Hutton), Ridge (Allan Twynam), Lloyd’s Register (Mike Byrne).

Purpose of the NSWPN

  • Share knowledge and experience with a network of leading experts in completion, workover and production from North Sea operating companies
  • Learn from presentations and discussions concerning the challenges and solutions to maximizing well productivity and injectivity
  • Meet with colleagues and gain fresh insight into the latest technologies and techniques in identifying, preventing and remediating formation damage
  • Exchange information on well productivity issues without commercial bias, hence the network excludes service company representatives for this reason

The NSWPN meets quarterly by video / audio conference (2 hours) with a specific theme for discussion with one face to face meeting (2 day) per year. Membership of the Network was initially at no cost, however operator representatives were encouraged to present at the meetings on specific topics to generate discussion and support between members.

The network has now grown in membership, visibility and value such that a website has been developed to maximise the effectiveness of the network and simplify the administration. “Full” membership is available for a small membership fee. “Guest” membership is free of charge but the level of access is restricted.
