A case study in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico in which pressure transient analysis, fractional flow, and production logging tools were integrated to identify correctly the cause of, and execute an effective remedy for, a well’s productivity deterioration. Permanent downhole gauges (PDGs) provide vast amounts of pressure-transient and rate data which may be interpreted with improved pressure-transient-analysis (PTA) approaches to gain more knowledge about reservoir dynamics.
Environmental advocates say some of America's most iconic species are getting squeezed under policies intended to boost American energy dominance. Trump administration officials counter that they are taking reasonable steps to protect wildlife while opening up public lands to more drilling. The US Interior Department on 7 August launched an overhaul to an Obama-era plan to protect sage grouse that it says aims to preserve the species of bird while expanding opportunities for oil development in western states where they live.

How oil prices affect the economies of countries differently. Sustained rapid economic growth has made China and India increasingly important in the world economy. The accompanying surge in energy demand from these two countries has been a factor in recent oil price increases. Young professionals offer their opinions on these opportunities and threats.
Most people who sign up for a MOOC – a massive open online course – never finish it, often completing less than half of the work. But does that mean they didn't get value from it? Should I Consider Graduate School? Graduate school can have a big impact on your career, but it isn't for everyone. Be clear about your expectations and what you hope to accomplish when pursuing an advanced degree.
This article highlights interesting applications of machine learning in the oil and gas industry in drilling, formation evaluation, and reservoir engineering. Each project uses a data-driven model to solve a previously complex problem using machine learning to augment an existing solution. Graham Hack shares his experience working for a large and a small E&P company and discusses how the role of young professionals can differ in these companies. This article presents three important R&D realms that demonstrate good collaborative efforts between independents and academic research institutions. Three women working in R&D offer perspectives on their work, why they joined that branch of the industry, what projects they work on, and what keeps them challenged.
