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. The keynote address describes the breakthrough features of PFLNG1 â€“ the worldâ€™s first floating LNG facility; and the pioneering innovation that it brings to the LNG industry.

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.
Ten women engineers who are successful in their careers share their best advice for women engineers who are just starting. An oil industry veteran and his petroleum engineer daughter discuss how things have changed for women in the industry and what the future holds for the new generation of energy workers. In this Women Offshore podcast, offshore professional Amanda Locke shares what it was like for her since her maternity leave ended and she headed back offshore to her job. We hope the collection of these messages will serve to illustrate the state of gender diversity from a cross section of professionals that are exposed to it. Among the millennial and Gen Z generations who serve as the primary recruiting pool in the coming years, diversity and inclusion is a key requirement when choosing to accept employment offers.
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.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. Across the Middle East and North African region, wells are being drilled at ever increasing depths and lengths. Wells that several years ago would have been unthinkable to reach with traditional intervention techniques are now becoming the norm, and novel techniques, equipment, tools, and products are being developed and implemented to reach even further. Stimulation and chemical placement continue to drive production recovery in some areas, while the application of digital tool technologies and extended reach interventions allows unlocking some well potential. The coiled tubing utilisation is also becoming evident for supporting frac-ing activity both conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
Applications open on 15 November each year, and close on 15 April. Judges review all eligible applications and winners are announced 1 August.
