This course provides a fundamental understanding of process safety techniques and how applying these techniques can improve safety, equipment reliability, environmental performance and reduce overall costs. It presents an overview of the elements comprising process safety, practical examples and how process safety can be integrated into day-to-day operations. Working and studying abroad is a huge part of the oil and gas industry and despite the impact on a professional’s career and personal life, little guidance is available for those considering the big move. At this event, we will be sharing stories from those who have gone through the same process and explore some of the benefits and difficulties of diverse working environments. Sustainability means many different things to different people. For governments, it means ensuring development that meets the needs and aspirations of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Knowledge Sharing ePosters allow one-on-one interactions with presenters and opportunities to study a particular concept at an appropriate level of detail. Subject matter varies, but topics are consistent with the other technical sessions. The oil and gas industry continues to play a key role in growing economies and improving living standards in an increasingly discombobulated world with ever-increasing uncertainties and demands. The recent triumph of the Industry in shale gas and shale oil, mainly in the USA, which is yet to realise its full potential across the world, clearly demonstrate that the natural challenges which lie in subsurface or in deep-water developments are easier to master than those above the surface conundrums. They are less predictable and hardly measurable, such as major oil price crisis, world economic rivalries, exclusionism, and popularism. Despite the aforementioned uncertainties, the industry has managed to deliver the energy the world needs to drive global economic growth, improve standards of living, and make such energy more accessible and affordable to all people. To keep doing this, the industry has clearly had to constantly adjust, reshape and transform itself to continue delivering its mission.
Gas-based EOR in tight unconventionals is a growing application to tap the vast unproduced oil and condensate resources in liquid-rich shale basins. The Huff-n-Puff process now involves several hundred wells in the Eagle Ford, and pilots are planned or ongoing in all other liquid-rich basins (Bakken, Permian, and Montney). The seminar will discuss the Huff-n-Puff gas EOR process specifically, but will also address relevant fundamentals of displacement-based gas EOR methods (miscibility, vaporisation, and displacement) in tight unconventionals. Introduction to unconventional gas EOR Review ongoing industry gas EOR projects in North America unconventionals What makes unconventional gas EOR different than conventional? Several oil fields are currently under one or more of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes Worldwide. Main groups of EOR processes include chemical, solvent (gas), and thermal EOR plus other processes. The goal of this seminar is to provide attendants with solid understanding of different aspects, types, and applications of current and advanced Enhanced oil Recovery (EOR) processes. The main oil recovery categories include primary, secondary, and enhanced oil recovery.
