Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. As drilling automation has transformed from a blue sky vision to a reality, so has the industry's understanding of the depth and breadth of automation needs and opportunities. The focus is no longer solely on-bottom drilling performance but now considers the entire lifecycle of well construction. Sensors for automation Human centered design - industry 5.0 thinking (placing the human back in the loop) Big data analytics that are proven Streaming analytics and edge solutions Human centered design - industry 5.0 thinking (placing the human back in the loop) Individual case studies within each session were presented to provide a foundation for what is available today, and what will be available in the near term. This workshop brought together operators, drilling data solution experts, as well as service company and drilling contractor personnel to identify and discuss challenges to accelerating adoption of these solutions in the industry.
Data Science and Digital Engineering in Upstream Oil and Gas (DSDE) is an online publication from the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) that presents the evolving landscape of data management and use in the industry. It is updated continually with original content from SPE and curated content. In addition to online ads available in a variety of sizes and locations, the DSDE Newsletter is another valuable opportunity to get your name in front of the wide audience of engineering disciplines interested in optimizing the use of data in predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, decision science, data analysis, digital workflows, and cybersecurity. Take advantage of the opportunity to reach your target customers. For immediate access to the print and digital media planner, including pricing, please provide your contact information.
Keeping Up With the Digital Age: What is Data Analytics all about? This interview explores the opportunities, challenges, and what young professionals need to know to have a rewarding career in drilling data analytics. Data story consumers are focused on summarized results and highlights instead of details of the analysis. It’s a data scientist’s responsibility to identify the significance of the data and to present it in a simple but scientific manner. Statoil's Acting head of Digital Centre of Excellence shares the company's digital road map.
Big-data mining techniques can help determe the type-curves and the resulting estimated ultimate recovery of an asset being evaluated for acquisition. In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.

The joint oil field had been offline since 2015, due to an operational dispute. Average production from Bakken wells completed more than 3 years after they were drilled was approximately equal to wells drilled a year before they were put into service, according to a study by the US Energy Information Administration. The oil and gas industry has a lot to gain from the adoption of big data analytics as recently highlighted examples from major service company Halliburton demonstrate. SPE’s technical directors are focused on problems that require working outside the bounds of their discipline. Angola’s Block 17 is nearing the end of one era of development and the beginning of its next.
Penspen will also carry out engineering services on the Zirku Island plant. Proposal requests were sent to companies to solicit partnerships for the project with ADNOC and ADPower. The contracts were awarded in February. Petrofac said it is working with ADNOC to explore alternative options. Petrofac continues working relationship with UAE following contract awards for Dalma Gas Development project.
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.
While the façade painted by IIoT and data-driven processes is one of an environment that is heavily guided by computers, it actually calls for an evolved workforce that is able to use the data to enhance design and decision-making skills. With new options for connectivity, and the growing popularity of LTE connections, there is a huge opportunity for remote connections to close the digitalization gap. Shell has partnered with Udacity to provide its staff training in artificial intelligence. Digital oil and gas applications are expanding by leaps and bounds, providing insights and improving decision making and execution. Here are the top areas which could significantly improve business bottom line.
The formation of scale deposits upon tubing, casing, perforations, and even on the formation face itself, can severely constrict fluid flow and reduce the production rate of oil and gas wells. In addition to lost production, a considerable portion of the workover budget is expended in efforts to remove these deposits and prevent their recurrence. As a consequence, scale prevention has been and continues to be a common exercise and is successfully applied in many areas. Although the principles behind scale formation and prevention are generally well understood, there are many new forms of scale prevention and new scale inhibitor application technologies. Some people consider scale prevention a mature subject matter area with "nothing new under the sun," but in fact there are many new developments, some of which will be highlighted in this presentation. This presentation will review the major elements that normally comprise any effort aimed at the successful control of scale deposition, starting with scale identification, followed by scale prediction, inhibition, and removal. Several case histories will illustrate the application of these scale control techniques in oil production facilities. Scale formation can be a show stopper, but if properly managed, scale can be prevented economically. Charles Hinrichsen earned a BS degree in Chemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and an MS and PhD in Chemistry from Cornell University. He worked at Texaco and later Chevron for forty years at Chevron's Energy Technology Company as a Chemical Treating Specialist. From 1998–2001 he coordinated Texaco's chemical operations in Angola, West Africa, and from 2001–2003 he served as Senior Corrosion and Chemical Treating Engineer in Wafra, Kuwait.
Time-stamped data anomalies can lead to more-accurate identification and faster diagnosis. In partnership with TechnipFMC, DNV GL opened a pilot project for the international collaboration of operators and the supply chain. Many digital twins represent an asset’s initial form and struggle to reflect developments in their physical counterparts as the asset matures. ADNOC will utilize Honeywell’s asset monitoring and predictive analytics platform to improve asset efficiency and integrity across the operator’s upstream and downstream businesses. Developing the facility of the future is a technological and infrastructural challenge, but the people behind the technology play just as critical of a role in actualizing complex, innovative asset designs.
