Africa (Sub-Sahara) Oranto Petroleum has signed two production-sharing agreements (PSAs) with Uganda for oil and gas exploration around Lake Albert, the Nigerian company said. The deal covers the Ngassa Shallow and Ngassa Deep plays in blocks near the southern part of Lake Albert, according to the Uganda Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development. The pacts closely followed the signing of a PSA by Australia's Armour Energy that covers the Kanywataba block, a 133-square-mile area that was relinquished by three international companies in 2012 after failed exploration attempts. The agreements with Oranto and Armour involve acreage that was offered in Uganda's first competitive exploration licensing round last year. Uganda discovered oil in 2006 in the Albertine rift basin along the Democratic Republic of Congo border.
The basic objective of this course is to introduce the overview and concept of production optimisation, using nodal analysis as a tool in production optimisation and enhancement. The participants are exposed to the analysis of various elements that help in production system starting from reservoir to surface processing facilities and their effect on the performance of the total production system. Depth conversion of time interpretations is a basic skill set for interpreters. There is no single methodology that is optimal for all cases. Next, appropriate depth methods will be presented. Depth imaging should be considered an integral component of interpretation. If the results derived from depth imaging are intended to mitigate risk, the interpreter must actively guide the process.
The LNG will come from the offshore Qatargas 4 project in the North Field, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and Shell. After 4-1/2 years out of service, the massive Wafra oil field in the Saudi-Kuwaiti Onshore Partitioned Neutral Zone, is set to resume production sometime soon and ensuring a smooth restart is no small order.
M. Ghareeb has PhD in Petroleum Production Engineering with specialty in artificial lift and production engineering & operation. He is a member of petroleum engineering staff, Future University in Egypt. M. Ghareed is a technical and business professional with over 34 years' experience in oil & gas industry with long experience of business development, sales, marketing, operation, teaching and applications engineering covering Artificial lift design, operation and optimization (SRP, PCP, ESP, Jet and PL) for major service companies ( Lufkin, GE, Tundra process solutions (SSI), Weatherford) and oil filed operations for a major operators ( ENI, Agiba, GPC). M Ghareeb field experience includes the setup, installation, operation and optimization of different forms od artificial lift systems in Middle East, North Africa Russia Romania, Turkey and Brunei. Over the past years he also has played a major role in the practical training for the field staff and engineers in oil & gas production engineering and well operations for different major companies in the MENA, USA, Canada, Romania, Turkey and Far East.
After 4-1/2 years out of service, the massive Wafra oil field in the Saudi-Kuwaiti Onshore Partitioned Neutral Zone, is set to resume production sometime soon and ensuring a smooth restart is no small order. McDermott will work exclusively with Zamil Offshore to provide Saudi Aramco with maintenance, modifications and operations services. Megaprojects have come to define many of the world’s new resource projects but they are also a testament to the awesome engineering capabilities of the oil and gas industry. Find out who took home this year’s honors. A demonstration project of carbon capture, utilization, and storage through enhanced oil recovery was conducted in Saudi Arabia.
Unprecedented, perfect storm, a black swan event—all ways of describing the situation the oil and gas sector finds itself in right now. After 4-1/2 years out of service, the massive Wafra oil field in the Saudi-Kuwaiti Onshore Partitioned Neutral Zone, is set to resume production sometime soon and ensuring a smooth restart is no small order. The startup of the deepwater field marks the beginning of production from the massive Stabroek Block, which contains an estimated 6 billion BOE. ExxonMobil estimates that at least 5 FPSOs will be producing more than 750,000 BOPD from the Stabroek Block by 2025. The unmanned development is expected to add 80 million BOE of production to the aging Norwegian North Sea field.
The joint oil field had been offline since 2015, due to an operational dispute. The most recent hydrocarbon production boom is under way in the Middle East, and this time, the race is spilling into offshore waters. This paper presents the traditional methods of hydrate mitigation used in the NKJ fields and the way in which a transient model was initially built and continuously improved. In thermal enhanced oil recovery there is one big ingredient: steam. A new startup from Germany believes it has found the oil industry’s cheapest way to make it.
The complete paper reviews the results of gas hydrate engineering and production testing studies associated with northern Canada and Alaska. This paper describes studies that confirm that enzyme-based, environmentally preferable chemistries can be used to break polymers and mitigate H2S in various systems. In this study, two coatings were produced and evaluated to determine their effect on hydrate adhesion onto carbon-steel surfaces. This paper presents the traditional methods of hydrate mitigation used in the NKJ fields and the way in which a transient model was initially built and continuously improved.
