2012 Gas Well Workshop Sessions - Abstracts, Presentations, Papers

Copies of abstracts, presentations, and papers will be placed in this section as they become available.

Note: Formal papers are desired, but are not required. To make a presentation, we must receive an abstract and a copy of the actual presentation slides. Documents which have been received and are available are shown in underlined blue text. They may be accessed by clicking on them.

Note: Abstracts are to be submitted on or before Dec. 31, 2011.  If your Abstract is submitted after that date, there is a god chance there will not be room in the Program for  your presentation.  The Abstract Review Committee will meet in early January to finalize the organization of each Technical Session.  We will choose the best five or six Abstracts for each session, depending on the size of the session,

Presentations are to be submitted on or before Feb. 3, 2011.  We are serious about this date. We need time to review each Presentation and then the author(s) need time to correct their Presentations.  We DO NOT want to be receiving Presentations at the last minute.  This isn't fair to the Workshop Committee and it isn't fair to the author(s).

 

Status of Abstracts and Presentations --- This will be made available as time for the Workshop approaches.

Summary of Abstracts --- This will be printed and made available at the workshop.

Rolling Slide Show --- This will be shown at breaks during the Workshop.

Workshop Evaluation Form --- Use this form to evaluate the workshop if you didn't turn one in at the Workshop.  E-mail it to cleon@oilfieldautomation.

Standard Presentation Format --- Use of this Standard Presentation Format is mandatory for all presentations.  It provides consistency and ease of viewing by the audience.  It contains a standard disclaimer and copyright information to product the author(s), their company(ies), and the Workshop. 

Note:  The abstracts, PowerPoint presentations, and papers provided for the 2012 Gas Well Deliquification Workshop are listed below.  To download any abstract, presentation, or paper, click on the underlined link.  Some of the presentations are very large and may require several minutes to download. 

Note:  The presentations may only be downloaded by persons who attended the Workshop, or people who work for companies that had representatives at the Workshop.  To download a presentation, log in to the ALRDC web site and enter the access code when you click on a presentation.  The Access Code is distributed at the workshop.  If you attended but did not obtain this information, contact cleon@oilfieldautomation.com.

Note:  These presentations and papers are the property of the Gas Well Deliquification Workshop and the companies that authored them.   They are provided here for your information. They may not be altered in any way, and they may not be distributed to anyone outside of your company without the expressed written permission of the organizers of the workshop and the author(s).

Note:  After the workshop, a CD of the workshop proceedings will be sent to each participant who orders one.  The cost of a CD is $25.

Note:  The presentations here are in .pdf format.  If a "movie" was shown along with the presentation, it is included on the CD, and on this web site.  It may be very large.  However, if a video clip was more than about 10 MBytes, it is too large to load here.  We'll try to place these on the CD.
