The deal follows BP’s divestment of its global petrochemicals business in late June. Designed to be a “living” map, it focuses on the largest fixed infrastructure for crude oil and refined products such as trunk pipelines, refineries, and storage facilities. Supreme Court upholds ACP’s controversial permit to lay pipe under national forest and across two states. McDermott’s completion comes 19 months after it was first awarded. SapuraOMV achieved first production from the Larak gas field in January.
The Hydrogen Offshore Production project identifies an alternative to decommissioning by providing reuse options for offshore infrastructure. It aims to prove the feasibility of decentralized hydrogen generation, storage, and distribution solutions to provide a bulk hydrogen solution. Five key steps for shaping renewable energy projects are discussed. As part of the contract, Wood will provide the topside modifications needed for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind floating wind park with existing systems powering the facilities. The platforms will be the first to receive electric power from floating wind turbines.
Africa (Sub-Sahara) Oil samples have been recovered in the FAN-1 exploration well, being drilled offshore Senegal. Elevated gas and fluorescence were encountered in a shallow secondary target, and the presence of oil was confirmed by an intermediate logging program. Oil samples from thin sand were collected by a wireline formation tester for further analysis. The well will be deepened to a planned total depth of approximately 5000 m. Cairn is the operator (40%), with partners ConocoPhillips (35%), FAR (15%), and Senegalese national oil company Petrosen (10%). A drillstem test of BG Group's Mzia-3 well--located in Block 1, offshore southern Tanzania, at a water depth of around 1800 m--reached a maximum sustained flow rate of 101 MMscf/D of natural gas. The Mzia prospect is a multilayered field of Upper Cretaceous age with a gross gas column estimated at more than 300 m.
Practical Wireline Formation Testing and Sampling Disciplines: Reservoir Course Description This course is designed for petro physics and reservoir engineers who are involved in formation sampling and testing. Upon completion of this course, participants will become familiar with: The latest techniques and tools available How to perform pressure interpretation and acquisition Sampling knowledge (best practices) What to do to get a representative sample and how to design a tool string for a given problem Topics: Pressure Acquisition Hardware Review Advanced Applications PVT Properties Prediction Formation Static Temperature Effective Permeability Compaction Monitoring Course Length Why Attend To learn about reservoir characterisation using formation testers, to be able to interpret pressure and fluid properties, and to design a successful sampling and testing operation. Who Attends This class is designed for geophysicists, reservoir engineers and any engineers involved or interested in wireline formation sampling and testing including petro physical engineers, production engineers and testing engineers. Special Requirements There are no special requirements for this course. It is recommended for participants to bring their own examples to contribute to course discussions.
This course will discuss practical, state-of-the-art techniques for optimizing gas field assets -techniques that are based on the concept of integrated asset modeling (IAM), and working together through an asset team. In addition, because of the tremendous interest in developing and optimizing shale gas and tight oil field assets, around the world, an introduction to this topic is included in this course. Integration of reservoir, well inflow, wellbore, pipeline, and compressor models bring together all of the interested parties and allows for an integrated optimal solution, rather than different parties working in vacuum and arriving at solutions for the separate components that do not fit well. This course goes beyond standard nodal analysis courses available in the industry, as in this course the reservoir and facilities components are also incorporated. The instructors have extensive industry experience in optimizing gas field assets and using integrated asset modeling approach for achieving that objective.
The A-frame is DNV certified. The deferments are the latest actions Shell has taken in response to record low crude prices. The project aims to contribute an estimated ultimate recovery of more than 175 MMboe from one of the company’s signature deepwater projects in the US Gulf of Mexico. The subsea tieback is expected to start up in 2021. This is Shell’s second major development on a tieback in the US Gulf of Mexico, following Kaikias’ startup in May.
Forecasts are lowered for levels of E&P, budgets, and project sanctioning. The economic impact report looked at scenarios involving current policies and potential bans on both drilling permits and offshore leases. The A-frame is DNV certified. Both platforms offshore assets were shut in following a leak in ExxonMobil's 100,000 B/D pipeline system. Subsea 7’s installation services contract is the latest Chevron award for its Anchor field project.
The contract continues the two companies’ 8-year working relationship; in 2012, they performed the world’s-first underdeck inspection. The sale of the Appalachia position is in line with Shell’s strategy to focus on its shales strategy. The deferments are the latest actions Shell has taken in response to record low crude prices. The planned JV is for one of three LNG terminals GCL is planning to build in China. Both platforms offshore assets were shut in following a leak in ExxonMobil's 100,000 B/D pipeline system.
