Africa (Sub-Sahara) Algeria awarded four of 31 oil and gas field blocks on offer to foreign consortiums in its first auction since 2011. Shell and Repsol won permits for the Boughezoul area in the north of the country, while Shell and Statoil won permits for the Timissit area in the east. A consortium of Enel and Dragon Oil was awarded permits for both the Tinrhert and the Msari Akabli areas. Circle Oil's CGD-12 well, located onshore Morocco in the Sebou permit, encountered natural gas at different levels within the Guebbas and Hoot sands. Wireline logging analysis confirmed a net 9.7 m of pay. The primary target, the Main Hoot sands, flowed at a sustained rate of 4.62 MMscf/D through a 24/64-in.
Africa (Sub-Sahara) Bowleven said that its extended flow test program at the Moambe and Zingana wells on the Bomono Permit onshore Cameroon is complete. The company said that the results to date continue to support its plans for an initial supply of between 5 MMscf/D and 6 MMscf/D of natural gas for power generation, under a development program established with partners Actis and Eneo. The initial program focuses on production from the shallower gas-prone sands on the permit. Bowleven has a 100% equity interest in the permit. Eni started production from the West Hub development project's Mpungi field in Block 15/06 offshore Angola. The startup follows the project's first oil from the Sangos field in November 2014 and the Cinguvu field last April.
The complete paper discusses the importance of adequate preparation and the approaches used to overcome challenges of EOR operations, including handling back-produced polymer. 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. Annual report says that governments have the greatest capacity and responsibility to shape the energy future. This paper describes a smart management system used for retrieving and evaluating all flow-assurance-related data for more than 700 of the operator’s onshore and offshore wells. Well RXY is located in Cairn’s Ravva offshore field in the Krishna-Godavari Basin in India.
The complete paper discusses the importance of adequate preparation and the approaches used to overcome challenges of EOR operations, including handling back-produced polymer. The complete paper presents steps to accelerate enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in a Grimbeek field from a four-injector pilot to 80 new injectors in a rapid deployment. The authors examine methods of adopting an aggressive approach to optimizing stimulation design to lower the break-even level of operations and evaluate the results. This paper summarizes a technology using SMP to provide downhole sand control in openhole environments. With multistage operations becoming the industry norm, operators need easily deployable diversion technologies that will protect previously stimulated perforations and enable addition of new ones.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share. Every attendee leaves energised with a full list of ideas and a support network of fellow leaders. Those sections and student chapters actively participating in this workshop have consistently been recognized with awards as the best in SPE. SPE Cares is a global volunteering drive aimed at promoting, supporting and participating in community services at the SPE section and student chapter’s level. On its official launch this year at ATCE Dubai, SPE Cares will conduct a “Give a Ghaf” Tree Planting Programme to help preserve Ghaf’s cultural and ecological heritage. The Ghaf tree is an indigenous species, specific to UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia. It is a drought tolerant, evergreen tree that can survive a harsh desert environment. The initiative not only aims to hold events/activities at ATCE, but also recognise community service that SPE members are already conducting in their respective student chapters and professional sections. The KEY Club, open daily, is an exclusive lounge for key SPE members. The lounge is open to those with 25 years or more of continuous membership, Century Club members, current and former SPE Board officers and directors, Honorary and Distinguished Members, as well as this year’s SPE International Award Winners and Distinguished Lecturers. DSATS (SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) will hold a half-day symposium featuring keynote presentations on urban automation. This symposium will explore technologies being used in developing smart cities through the automation of their infrastructure, transportation systems, energy distribution, water systems, street lighting, refuse collection, etc. These efforts rely on many of the same tools needed for drilling systems automation yielding increased efficiencies, lower maintenance and reduced emissions. Their knowledge and experience can guide the path being travelled by the oilfield drilling industry.
This seminar covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells.

The seminar also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. As the industry wrestles with another price cycle, making sense of the world in which the oil and gas industry will operate is important to understanding the actions (by engineers, corporations, and governments) which must be taken today so that the oil and gas industry may prosper in the future. Hydraulic fracturing has been touted as a ‘new technology’ (though a misnomer) which is opening access to un-tapped value (in the USA) and lowering the cost of energy across the globe by shifting the balance between supply and demand.
SPE is educating the next generation of aspiring engineers, scientists and managers about the oil and gas industry. This is an opportunity for school students in grades 9–12, studying Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Geography or interested in Petroleum Engineering are invited to join SPE members from all over the globe to discover the world of Petroleum Engineering. School teachers are invited to bring a group of 10–15 students. Students will be treated to a range of hands-on activities and presentations from renowned engineers. The oil price outlook coupled with the response of each oil and gas company to make ends meet has led to severe exploration budget cuts.
PETRONAS FLNG SATU (PFLNG1) is a floating liquefied natural gas facility producing 1.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, on a facility that is 365m long, and 60m wide, making it among the largest offshore facility ever built. The PFLNG1 project is the first of its kind in the world and is the first deployment of PETRONASâ€™ Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) technology, consolidating the traditional offshore to onshore LNG infrastructure into a single facility. This will see a giant floating facility capable of extracting, liquefying and storing LNG at sea, before it is exported to customers around the globe. The FLNG journey has come a long way since 2006, with many technological options explored to monetise and unlock the potential of small and stranded gas fields. Moving an LNG production to an offshore setting poses a demanding set of challenges â€“ as every element of a conventional LNG facility needs to fit into an area roughly one quarter the size in the open seas whilst maintaining safety and increased flexibility to LNG production and delivery.

Africa (Sub-Sahara) Eni started production from the West Hub development project's Mpungi field in Block 15/06 offshore Angola. The startup follows the project's first oil from the Sangos field in November 2014 and the Cinguvu field last April. Mpungi will ramp up West Hub oil production to 100,000 B/D in the first quarter from a previous level of 60,000 B/D. The project also includes the future development of the Mpungi North, Ochigufu, and Vandumbu fields. Eni is the block operator with a 36.84% stake. Sonangol (36.84%) and SSI Fifteen (26.32%) hold the other stakes.
