    Our ICoTA Chapters have begun to take advantage of hosting webinars and virtual lunch and learns, and it has been fantastic to see the results.

    ICoTA Canada hosted its first online seminar at the beginning of the month, attracting 79 participants who have all shown an interest in attending similar virtual events. Following its success, the Chapter will host its next webinar on April 29 - High Strength Coiled Tubing - How Is Fatigue Life Affected By Slip Damage? This webinar will highlight the findings of some recent testing of quench and tempered coiled tubing and will compare the results to conventional coiled tubing.

    ICoTA Europe follows suit by hosting its first webinar on April 28, presented by TGT and Tullow. Free to attend for all ICoTA members, the two companies will present a case study where passive acoustics have been used to assess the suitability of a zone for Single Well Chemical Tracer Testing by evaluating how effectively targeted zones are in communication with the production string and how effectively adjacent zones are isolated from each other by the relevant completion components.

    As an association, we want to support our members as much as possible through this challenging time by continuing to host training events. The format may have changed, but we're delighted to see the same enthusiasm and engagement from our membership. We look forward to seeing you all at more virtual events soon.
