LLR and LMR Solutions through Innovative Technology Integration

Please join us as industry leaders come together to host a collaborative technical program to address challenges faced in the industry for reducing liabilities, optimizing production and improving asset performance by using innovative remediation & reclamation techniques.

Be part of the discussion! Through advancements of innovative technology and sharing of ideas/successes amongst the industry this will improve the life of the well, maximize recovery under constantly changing reservoir and operating conditions, reduce operating costs and alleviate environmental impact.


About us:

Blue Spark Energy: Established in 2011, Blue Spark Energy is a privately-held oilfield services company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Blue Spark Energy’s WIRELINE APPLIED STIMULATION PULSING (WASP®) technology provides an innovative, efficient, low cost, low risk oil and gas well stimulation method that dramatically increases productivity with less impact on the environment. The WASP® technology converts, compresses and discharges electrical energy as usable high-power hydraulic pulses to improve connectivity between the well bore and reservoir, with an average improvement of more than 200%.


Roke Technologies Ltd: Roke Technologies Ltd. specializes in delivering reliable and proven reservoir evaluation through pipe using our unique Quad Neutron Technology.  Through extensive nuclear modeling and analysis of empirical results in downhole applications, we continue to develop the Quad technology.  Clients across the globe are utilizing the unique Quad measurement and interpretation methods in unlocking previously unfound resources We have a proud legacy of Research & Development, and this continues today.  We control all aspects of the tool development process within our base facilities.  Mechanical and electronic design, software development, tool assembly, testing, and characterization are key components of our operation.


Land Integrity Foundation: LIF is a not for profit, multifaceted foundation that straddles, the Oil and Gas industry, Municipal Governments, Regulatory bodies, Builders and Developers.  The foundation has been successful in positively changing both LLR and LMR statuses.

Once a well is registered with the foundation, the following actions will be triggered:

  1. An assessment will be made which includes:  wellbore integrity, production viability, land status, AER file assessment, commercial liens and easements, development applications. See attachment C sample of triage assessment.
  2. A report will be generated outlining the result of the assessment and submitted to the owner and other stakeholders.
  3. Recommendations will be made as to which consultants, partners, service providers etc. Are capable of assisting (or completing) the recommended mitigation required to move the well to a lower liability rank or elimination of the liability.
