Water flooding is by far the most Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) technique utilised by the vast majority of reservoirs around. Management of water both in the reservoir and on the surface is critical to improving reservoir sweep, production and recovery that in turn deliver the greatest value and performance. This symposium offers a unique opportunity for participants to promote knowledge sharing and technology transfer with the aim of delivering world-class performance in water flooding given its criticality as an IOR method. Join technical experts from major NOC, IOC and service providers share their recent experiences and provide solutions to on-going challenges in this field.
The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) are joining forces to co-host a special two-part workshop on High-Temperature Well Cementing and Integrity. Part I of this workshop will be held virtually, on September 14 - 16, 2020. Part I's new virtual experience opens the world of geothermal up to a wider range of industry professionals who can now attend the workshop without having to leave their home or office. The in-depth workshop will share the latest technical innovations, advancements, and best practices in geothermal. All sessions are designed to maximize the exchange of information and ideas between attendees and presenters through technical presentations followed by interactive Q&A periods.
He started in the oil and gas business running logs in the 1990s and by the end of the decade became a petroleum engineer at Equinor. Now, he is set to take over the company’s top position. Zap Energy will use Chevron’s investment to develop its technology, a next-generation modular nuclear reactor with an aim toward cost-effective, flexible, and commercially scalable fusion. The latest deal is set to make Southwestern Energy the third-largest producer in the gas-rich Appalachian Basin. The world’s largest oil company saw profits fall by nearly three quarters during the previous quarter but it still weathered the storm better than international majors.
The company said its goals underscore its strong environmental, social, and governance performance as it responds to rising global energy demand. In addition, it said, the goals are aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. This paper suggests that the value of environmental monitoring during seismic acquisition can extend further than compliance, suggesting that the design and application of a comprehensive environmental monitoring program can bring substantial environmental benefits and extend working relationships. When SPE’s international health, safety, and environment conference opens in April, it will bring together professionals from around the world. This gathering of professionals, on top of the technical information shared, is what makes the conference so important, said Jack Hinton, program cochair.
Drillstring vibration is a leading cause of downhole-tool failure and premature wear of downhole equipment. Understanding drilling dynamics, the downhole shock and vibration that occur while drilling, is a crucial step to improving drilling efficiency and reducing nonproductive time (NPT). The variables defining drill-bit performance cover a lot of ground. There is a lot of attention given to cutters studding diamond drill bits, but just as important are what is in the rest of the drillstring and the decisions made by the driller.
The Tamar deepwater gas development offshore Israel experienced a short 4-year gap between discovery and startup, but doing so required the tough decisions in handling significant flow assurance issues. Where will the next big idea come from? A number of oil and gas giants are looking to the stars. Not literally, but oil companies are convinced that valuable synergies can be gained by working closely with other industries facing similar challenges.
Aqueous foam has been demonstrated to have promise in conformance-control applications. This paper explores the foaming behavior of a CO2-soluble, cationic, amine-based surfactant. In the complete paper, a new assessment of the WAG-hysteresis model, which was developed originally for water-wet conditions, was carried out by automatic history matching of two coreflood experiments in water-wet and mixed-wet conditions. This paper presents an overview of the SACROC Unit’s activity focusing on different carbon dioxide (CO2) injection and water-alternating-gas (WAG) projects that have made the SACROC unit one of the most successful CO2 injection projects in the world. Accurate determination of relative permeability hysteresis is needed to predict water-alternating-gas (WAG) injection reliably.
A Saudi Aramco engineer discusses being one of a few women, and how she balances work and family while sacrificing neither. Tjerk Joustra, Shell, reflects on his mentoring experiences and how they have helped him along his career path. A conversation with Tricia Stephens, who recommends getting out of your comfort zone. Eni engineer Andrea Rimoldi ponders whether a transfer to Angola is worth it. Tricia Stephens encourages risk taking and thinking outside the box.
