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.
Decisions in E&P ventures are affected by Bias, Blindness, and Illusions (BBI) which permeate our analyses, interpretations and decisions. This one-day course examines the influence of these cognitive pitfalls and presents techniques that can be used to mitigate their impact. Bias refers to errors in thinking whereby interpretations and judgments are drawn in an illogical fashion. Blindness is the condition where we fail to see an unexpected event in plain sight. Illusions refer to misleading beliefs based on a false impression of reality. All three can lead to poor decisions regarding which work to undertake, what issues to focus on, and whether to forge ahead or walk away from a project. Strategic thinking and planning are key elements in an organisation’s journey to maximise value to shareholders, customers, and employees. Through this workshop, attendees will go through the different processes involved in strategic planning including the elements of organisational SWOT, business scenario and options development, elaboration of strategic options and communication to stakeholders. Examples are provided including corporate, business unit and department case studies. This seminar will teach participants how to identify, evaluate, and quantify risk and uncertainty in everyday oil and gas economic situations. It reviews the development of pragmatic tools, methods, and understandings for professionals that are applicable to companies of all sizes. The seminar also briefly reviews statistics, the relationship between risk and return, and hedging and future markets.

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.

ExxonMobil continues to make major oil discoveries offshore Guyana, a country that today produces no oil. The just-announced Turbot-1 well is the company’s fifth discovery in Guyana’s waters in a little more than 2 years. Applying an economic analysis for Trinidad and Tobago's deepwater gas fiscal regime, results were calculated for various price scenarios to identify a workable strategy for development of offshore resources.
Exxon Mobil plans to invest $200 million to boost natural gas output in Argentina's Vaca Muerta Shale, a spokeswoman reported recently. The company has asked the government of Neuquén province for a 35-year unconventional production concession in the Los Toldos I Sur Block, which the company operates. The Vaca Muerta is one of the world's largest sources of unconventional gas reserves, and attracting investment in the growing play there is a key priority for the Argentine government. ExxonMobil last year said it could invest more than $10 billion in shale projects over the region in the next 20 to 30 years. The company holds an 80% interest in the Los Toldos I Sur block, with Tecpetrol and Gas y Petróleo de Neuquén each holding 10% interests.
The ruling protects half a million acres of land in the Amazon forest on which the Waorani have lived for centuries from being earmarked for oil drilling, campaigners said. A parade of hundreds of Waorani, members of an indigenous nation in a remote part of the Amazon, marched triumphantly through the streets of Puyo, Ecuador, celebrating a court ruling that held that the Ecuadorian government could not auction off their land for oil exploration without their consent. Total is determined to push ahead with its plans to drill for oil in the Amazon basin, it said on 1 June as Greenpeace activists interrupted its annual general meeting in protest over the project. This paper provides a broad overview of the Great Amazon Reef System based on the first-ever video surveys of the region.
Using an underwater remotely operated vehicle, activists on board the Greenpeace ship Esperanza documented a large methane leak in the North Sea caused by a major blowout during an oil drilling operation 30 years ago. Greenpeace has been banned from carrying out climate protests on North Sea oil rigs after the oil giant Shell won a Scottish court order. Total is determined to push ahead with its plans to drill for oil in the Amazon basin, it said on 1 June as Greenpeace activists interrupted its annual general meeting in protest over the project.
The BC-10 asset, located in deep water offshore Brazil, produces heavy oil in the range of 16 to 24 °API. In this article, two examples of production optimization for this field will be provided (further examples are available in the complete paper). This paper evaluates the feasibility of a number of production- and export-riser configurations for ultradeepwater applications.
The round included a near-$1 billion signature bonus on a Campos Basin block awarded to a Total-led consortium. UK operator Trident Energy is entering Brazil while Australian firm Karoon Energy is expanding its position in the country. Both will try to boost output from already-producing assets. This paper presents a retrospective of the most-significant technologies developed and deployed in the Campos Basin for more than 80 production systems in more than 30 oil- and gas-field developments.
