Oil demand in India has grown rapidly in the past decade due to its rapidly advancing middle class. A national drive to improve environmental pollution is focusing on natural gas as a transitionary energy source due to its lower carbon emissions. Gas hydrate resources in India are huge and potentially represent a global energy game changer if the technologies for production from hydrate reservoirs are techno-economically established. Several initiatives have been undertaken by NGHP in India for gas hydrate exploration in deepwater offshore. Sustained rapid economic growth has made China and India increasingly important in the world economy.
How oil prices affect the economies of countries differently. Sustained rapid economic growth has made China and India increasingly important in the world economy. The accompanying surge in energy demand from these two countries has been a factor in recent oil price increases. Young professionals offer their opinions on these opportunities and threats.
The resistivity index (RI) of Fontainebleau and Bentheimer sandstones was investigated at ambient and reservoir pressures down to low water saturations. The RI measurements show that both sandstones display Archie behavior at elevated pressure. This paper presents experimental and field-case studies with a sandstone-acidizing treatment designed to retard the hydrofluoric acid reaction rate and enable single-stage treatment. This paper describes a matrix-acidizing campaign executed successfully in the Gulf of Cambay on the west coast of India.
To predict liquid-loading tendencies and to identify opportunities for production enhancement, the performance of 150 gas wells was analyzed in two gas fields in India. Liquid loading is a common production problem in mature gas wells. Correct prediction of the critical gas velocity at which the well starts to load is very important for taking action to prevent premature loss of production. An experimental study of liquid loading of gas wells has been conducted with air/water flow in a 3-in. One of the major challenges in fracturing low-permeability gas formations is the loss of well productivity caused by fluid entrapment in the matrix or fracture.
Fields in the Upper Assam-Arakan Basin have been studied intensely to find prospective sweet spots, perforation intervals for new wells, and potential workover candidates. These forecasts, guided only by dynamic-numerical-model results, have had mixed results when implemented in the field. In this paper, an integrated work flow is proposed for brownfields where oil production is driven mainly by water injection. Produced-water salinity plays a key role, acting as a natural tracer and, thus, helping avoid additional costs for new data acquisition. Is Industry Ready for Brownfields’ Prime Time?
Abu Dhabi will conduct its first-ever competitive tender for international partners to explore and develop oil and gas blocks onshore and offshore. India Asks Big Oil Companies "Where Do You Want to Drill?" India will test whether it can reach its ambitious goal of reducing oil and gas imports by 10% by 2022 with an upcoming auction of oil properties.
A luxurious escape in the western most part of the Arab world, Morocco has seen a surge in interest from international oil companies in the past few years, who want to tap into the country’s immense hydrocarbon potential. Mozambique has an enormous energy potential, which provides the country with favorable means to fulfill its domestic and regional energy needs for southern Africa and beyond. The latest discoveries of natural gas puts Mozambique in a very privileged position both in the region and in the world. Known for its diverse heritage and rich traditions, the Indian state of Gujarat is also a hub for modern development. It is the first state in India to set up its own gas transmission line and has the world’s largest refinery.
Gas hydrate resources in India are huge and potentially represent a global energy game changer if the technologies for production from hydrate reservoirs are techno-economically established. Several initiatives have been undertaken by NGHP in India for gas hydrate exploration in deepwater offshore. Fabián Vera, Baker Hughes, and Christine Ehlig-Economides, Texas A&M, explain transient well analysis and how it contributes to shale development. It may not matter whether the IOCs or the NOCs are in charge. The work to be done is the same and the same people will likely be doing it.
Natural gas hydrates are considered to store vast amount of natural gas trapped in the subsurface worldwide. However, gas hydrates are yet to be commercialized due to technical challenges in the production technology. As a compact source of energy which is widely distributed, natural gas hydrates can play a big role in meeting future energy demands. But producing them is not such an easy task. Gas hydrate resources in India are huge and potentially represent a global energy game changer if the technologies for production from hydrate reservoirs are techno-economically established.
