Tamar is a high permeability clastic gas reservoir that behaves like a well-connected tank, in many respects. At the same time, it has a significant level of complexity. The reservoir is comprised of three sand intervals, which are separated vertically by shales and broken into a number of fault blocks. While the degree of aquifer support has been an uncertainty, it is believed that the field demonstrates components of both bottom water and edge water drive. All Tamar wells were equipped with permanent downhole pressure and temperature gauges, and the surveillance of these pressure and rate data over the five-year production history has provided an unusually comprehensive data set.
Noble Energy’s latest planned gas development offshore Israel will not only have a major positive impact on the host country but could transform energy sourcing for the region, Project Manager Brian Hogan told the SPE Gulf Coast Section International Study Group recently. Australian technology developer MezurX is touting its newly introduced flow, density, and mud monitoring system as a significantly better alternative to the widely used Coriolis meter.
The Tamar deepwater gas development offshore Israel experienced a short 4-year gap between discovery and startup, but doing so required the tough decisions in handling significant flow assurance issues. Where will the next big idea come from? A number of oil and gas giants are looking to the stars. Not literally, but oil companies are convinced that valuable synergies can be gained by working closely with other industries facing similar challenges.
The report was written by a steering committee of SMEs with industry input from an SPE summit as well as members from SPE online communities. It is based on discussions and conclusions from the summit and is intended to provide guidance on an industry-wide safety management data sharing program. IoT has become a popular phrase in various industries. For upstream oil and gas operators, an IoT infrastructure may present an opportunity improve quality control on their projects, potentially reducing costs and increasing production. The SPE Board of Directors has realigned the Production & Operations and Projects, Facilities & Construction technical disciplines under one Technical Director. How do mooring systems reduce risks of hurricane damage to mobile offshore drilling units?
McDermott will provide EPC, hookup, and commissioning of the Cassia C topsides, a jacket, and a bridge to link Cassia C with the existing Cassia B platform. GATE Energy is the most recent contract awardee for Noble Energy’s Leviathan project offshore Israel. It will provide the commissioning of the production platform for the megaproject.
This paper shows how a new approach to small fields could unlock more than twice the net present value (NPV) of larger conventional fields in Southeast Asia at a similar level of capital expenditure (CAPEX). This paper reviews the efforts to exploit CBM resources in Indonesia, the challenges these efforts have faced, and possible solutions that can make operations more efficient and profitable. This paper presents a literature review to determine the engineering challenges and opportunities presented by CBM production in China. A startup company has created a system to create thousands of offshore development ideas by rapidly putting together components like building blocks, which its founders argue will force design teams to look outside their comfort zone. The industry is evolving to a more factual approach to profitability, with emphasis in modeling the long-term scenarios with detail.
The second round will offer 19 offshore blocks clustered in five zones to continue natural gas development in the eastern Mediterranean’s Levant Basin. This paper describes the successful delivery of one ultrahigh-rate gas well (more than 250 MMscf/D) completed in a significant gas field offshore Israel with 7-in.
The second round will offer 19 offshore blocks clustered in five zones to continue natural gas development in the eastern Mediterranean’s Levant Basin. Israel is launching a new offshore bid round for gas-bearing blocks in the Eastern Mediterranean. OTC panelists were excited at the potential of deepwater exploration offshore Mexico and believe that opportunities there could eventually drive a big new wave of activity.
The discovery is world’s third-largest natural gas discovery in the past 2 years. The second round will offer 19 offshore blocks clustered in five zones to continue natural gas development in the eastern Mediterranean’s Levant Basin. Noble Energy’s latest planned gas development offshore Israel will not only have a major positive impact on the host country but could transform energy sourcing for the region, Project Manager Brian Hogan told the SPE Gulf Coast Section International Study Group recently.
