Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) is a geologic and engineering enterprise designed to reduce atmospheric emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Extensive research links the GHG concentration in the atmosphere to the observed change in global temperature patterns (IPCC, 2013; Cox et al., 2000; Parmesean and Yohe, 2003). CCS technology could play an important role in efforts to limit the global average temperature rise to below 2°C, by removing carbon dioxide originating from fossil fuel use in power generation and industrial plants.
We will leave USC at 7:30 AM to take the Boat ride to the Islands at 9am. The tour will take about 2 hours and we shall return by 1pm. We will be visiting one of the 4 islands in the Long Beach Harbor that are the sites of drilling and production into the East Wilmington Oilfield. THUMS islands, built in the 1960s, allow the eastern portion of the field to be produced with environmental, spatial and logistical efficiency. Come and learn how these islands are both beautiful and practical. The tour will include a boat ride around Long Beach Harbor, a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the islands, a close-up view of an active drill rig, the production office where all the island wells are monitored, and award-winning landscaping designed by the same architect who created Disneyland’s Tomorrow Land. All must wear closed-toed, flat shoes (no heels or open-toed shoes allowed). Goggles and hardhats will be provided.
Asia is set to increase its decommissioning activities as more fields are reaching the end of their economic life in the years to come. With limited experience, increased complexity and the involvement of multiple stakeholders, the implementation of an effective decommissioning and abandonment plan requires thorough verification, extensive collaboration and detailed planning. As the region advances its decommissioning activities, it is critical for industry to progress discussions and harness collective efficiencies to develop a roadmap to ensure the right technologies, capabilities and knowledge are deployed whilst maintaining a healthy balance sheet. This session will engage leaders in the region to discuss opportunities and challenges, share experiences and lessons learnt, and deliberate how stakeholders can work together and focus on what can be done to keep the integrity of the environment and the decommissioning journey safe, efficient and effective. The current presentation date and time shown is a TENTATIVE schedule.
The current presentation date and time shown is a TENTATIVE schedule. The final/confirmed presentation schedule will be notified/available middle of October 2019. If we have learned anything from the North American experience, unconventional resources cannot be exploited by small incremental projects. If we are to be successful in developing these types of reservoirs, we have to make project scale operations work to bring these resources to market in a timely manner. A number of Eastern Hemisphere unconventional gas projects have raised interest, neared completion or are commencing deliveries.
Since the industrial revolution, the oil and gas industry has played an important role in the economic transformation of the world, fueling the need for heat, light and mobility of the world’s population. Today, the oil and gas industry has the opportunity to redefine its boundaries through digitalisation, after a period of falling crude prices disrupted exploration and production activities, and ineffective mature field development challenges that are currently facing most oil and gas companies in Indonesia. The recent downturn in the oil and gas industry has led to massive layoffs. Digital industrial revolution is slowly changing how upstream businesses operate. Increasing public awareness of climate change has fuelled the urgency to shift to cleaner alternative energy.
Over the last 5 years It has established itself and evolved into a must attend technical gathering in the Caspian Region that attracts lots of International interest and attendance and aids in the development of the Oil & gas industry. Both the Panel and Technical Sessions cover regional concerns professionally drawing on industry experts presentations and experiences. The quality of the technical content, in addition to the consistently high number of participants from across the region, indicates the importance of the event in life-long learning and technical competence in our staff." "This year's CTCE has been a great opportunity again for top E&P players in the region to share their expertise and experience with a focus on the imperative for adaptation in a volatile market. It highlighted the importance of Technology and disciplined Project Management so the region can compete in the world market and deliver energy at a competitive cost." "A must-attend event for the Kazakh oil and gas industry, it is the ideal platform for the exchange of professional experience and best practice among E&P professionals throughout the Caspian and further afield." "SPE’s Annual Caspian Technical Conference & Exhibition is a vital industry event that continues to allow representatives of the region to communicate with colleagues from around the world and share their views on the industry trends in the oil and gas sector.
SPE, through its Energy4me programme, will present a free one-day energy education workshop for science teachers (grades 8–12). A variety of free instructional materials will be available to take back to the classroom. Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its importance while discovering the world of oil and natural gas exploration and production. Energy4me is an energy educational public outreach programme that highlights how energy works in our everyday lives and promote information about career opportunities in petroleum engineering and the upstream professions. SPE’s Energy4me programme values the role teachers and energy professionals play in educating young people about the importance of energy.
The 25 May death of George Floyd, a black man, at the hands of Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, sparked national and international protests—and the oil and natural gas industry was not immune to the calls for social change. Royal Dutch Shell will announce a major restructuring by the end of the year as the energy company prepares to accelerate its shift toward low carbon, Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden told employees, a company source said. Operations during the COVID-19 pandemic and actions to decarbonize operations are among the highlights. The oil and gas industry was created by fierce entrepreneurs, wildcatters, and visionaries. But, in the last 50 years, it has lost its way. The industry desperately needs a paradigm shift. Here are four pillars upon which we think the reinvention of the oil and gas industry should be based. The company is creating two new business groups: Natural Resources, focused on developing the upstream oil and gas portfolio sustainably, and Energy Evolution, dedicated to supporting the evolution of the company’s power generation, product transformation, and marketing. Launched in collaboration with industry leaders and academia, the Microsoft Energy Core aims to accelerate digital transformation, build coalitions for responsible innovation, deliver skilling initiatives, and address sustainability and societal challenges.
