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.
This year at ATCE a host of activities will be on offer for young members, all designed to help you develop new skills, make new contacts in the industry, and find out more about how you can prepare yourself for a career in the oil and gas industry and how SPE can help you along the way. 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 recognised with awards as the best in SPE. Make friends from around the world in the lead up to ATCE.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. The prolonged depressed oil and gas price scenario has had a significant impact in delaying investments for new developments. Focus has shifted to lower capital intensive activities and towards maximising value creation from existing and mature fields. At the same time, the industry has also been extending production from late life fields while reducing risk and liabilities through innovative production and decommissioning strategies. Learnings from present activities can be adopted to lower risk exposure of future developments.
The past decade could be best described as an interesting time in the history of the oil and gas industry, and for the energy industry in general. In oil and gas, we've gone from plentiful times when oil prices were high and exploration was booming, into a price crash, which, in hindsight, may have been inevitable. Under the typical boom and bust cycles we've grown accustomed to, we would expect to be coming back into a time of plenty in the industry, but this time it feels different. The rise in climate awareness and the transition into cleaner sources of energy has almost created a perfect storm for oil and gas. We know that the world still needs hydrocarbons, and there will probably always be a demand to make the daily items we rely on, such as plastics and pharmaceuticals.
Sustainability and Verb Tenses: What Do They Have in Common? The English language uses different verb tenses to indicate a verb's status; these are referred to as past, present, and future tenses. Tenses refer to time and to something that has happened, is happening, or will happen. Examples are: done, to be done, and will do. Along this line, many areas of sustainability that began as mere concepts are now either done, being done, or planned to do.
Completion engineers feel pressure to maximize production per acre and minimize the downsides of fracturing in tight spaces. Terry Palisch, talks about promoting knowledge sharing as part of JPT’s tech director report. Good diagnostic testing is often painstaking, time-consuming, and costly, but recent studies suggest that a lack of knowledge can be even costlier. Good reservoir detective work costs money, but two studies show how it can help identify even more expensive problems.
From the field, to the customer, through engineering, CAM, and manufacturing then back to the field, each drilling bit's life is unique. Underbalanced coiled tubing drilling has continually advanced since the first trials in the 1990s but remains a relatively niche drilling technology. With UBCTD projects set to start in many countries next year, this technology may be seeing a turning point. Considering most of the rigs deal with human-machine interface systems, the role of human factors is at the heart of any successful operation. Eye-tracking technology can be useful in real-time operation centers where ocular movement data can improve the professionals’ performance.
If you've taken a career break and are now looking to return to the workforce, would you consider taking an internship? Career reentry expert Carol Fishman Cohen thinks you should. Lloyds Register Senior Flow Assurance Engineer Oche Ameh explains what flow assurance is and the importance of this field in oil and gas extraction. While a résumé matters for getting a data science job, having a portfolio of public evidence of your data science skills can do wonders for your job prospects. Data story consumers are focused on summarized results and highlights instead of details of the analysis.
Thank you for attending the Annual Caspian Technical Conference. SPE’s 6th annual Caspian Technical Conference has successfully come to a close in Baku, Azerbaijan after three packed days. Over 500 industry professionals from 26 countries attended the conference and the event saw participation from key industry players including SOCAR, BP, TOTAL, Worley, Schlumberger, TCO, Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Socar AQS, Equinor, and the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan, to name a few.
