Sabine Pass Train 6 gets the nod, Bechtel gets the go-ahead for construction. Apache Corp. signed a deal with Cheniere to supply natural gas produced from its Permian Basin Alpine High area to the Corpus Christi LNG facility Startup comes 8 months after the initial discovery in March, marking the second successful tieback since 2017 to the Beryl Alpha platform in the UK North Sea. The rising oil production and produced water volumes in the Permian are expanding the scope and scale of recycling. Apache is targeting 50% of its frac water to be made up from recycled produced water this year. Industry CIOs examine the challenges operators and service companies face in understanding cybersecurity threats.
As drones become a more significant part of energy projects, the guide outlines the steps operators should take in assessing their capabilities to run a drone program and the elements such programs should consider, including safety and regulatory concerns. Facilities Piping Inspection: Is Direct Assessment Enough? Tons of resources are devoted to assure the integrity of facility piping systems, but are the generally accepted methods of inspecting these systems the best way? Complex systems with above- and underground piping sections may require a combination of direct assessment and elements of an API code. Testing will be performed at DNV’s labs in Columbus, Ohio, and Norway and overseen by experts in fatigue of subsea equipment, bolting connections, cathodic protection, and instrumented tests.
History of SPE In 1957, the organization was officially founded as SPE, a constituent society of AIME. SPE became a separately incorporated organization in 1985. Our history begins within the American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME). AIME was founded in 1871 in Pennsylvania, USA, to advance the production of metals, minerals, and energy resources through the application of engineering. In 1913, a standing committee on oil and gas was created within AIME and proved to be the genesis of SPE.

The threat of cyberattacks on physical infrastructure, such as the electric grid and oil and gas pipelines, is a real concern in our contemporary world. Recent research states that cyberattacks will cost approximately $6 trillion annually by 2021. Offshore workers kidnapped from an FPSO offshore Nigeria in an armed pirate attack in July have been released, the owner of the floating production unit said. Cybersecurity technology and service providers are shifting priorities to support current needs: business continuity, remote work, and planning for transition to the next normal. The oil and gas industry is increasingly characterized by complex connectivity, but our digital dependency brings a new realm of cyber risks. The coronavirus pandemic has created a huge shift in how work is done. More people are working from home than ever, and this shift has opened new risks to cybersecurity.
An analysis of existing wells in the Martin Linge field, conducted by Equinor when it took over as operator from Total, revealed that several did not have sufficient barriers, leading the company to plan new wells to ensure safe operation. The oil and gas sector has always been inherently risky. No matter how far mitigating efforts go or by how much technology improves, it is unlikely that risk will be removed entirely anytime soon. That being said, the sector has made huge strides in recent years to better protect those who serve it. Lloyd’s Register has partnered with STC Global to create an artificial intelligence tool expected to provide insight from incident data captured by HSE functions but left untapped. There has been an increased number of major accidents at industrial facilities globally as many have come back online post-lockdown. Major oil and gas trade groups expressed confidence in their readiness for a busier-than-usual hurricane season in 2020, even with added logistical considerations stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. The complete paper describes a service company’s approach to the development and application of technology and innovative solutions to improve driving performance on the basis of extensive data analysis. The complete paper discusses Equinor’s operation planning tool, developed to present planners with the technical conditions of a platform, identify potentially dangerous combinations of concurrent activities, and propose learnings from 8 years of incident recordings.
Phase 1 involved a feasibility study for a facility capable of capturing 750,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The next phase will explore building a facility capable of more than twice that amount. As the company aims to become carbon net zero by 2050, it is undertaking a three-pronged approach focused on transforming its core, investing for growth, and positioning for the future. Two of Europe’s largest oil and gas producers will lead four offshore wind projects that together have the potential of powering 2 million homes. The company’s latest sustainability report highlights progress despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The new geothermal project development company will offer expertise in subsurface and drilling, project development, and risk mitigation. Through a combination of reducing operational emissions and offsetting projects, the shale-gas producer has set a new benchmark for its sector. Many oil and gas companies have been at the forefront of the development of sustainability reporting in recent years, but expectations of greater transparency are now filtering down to mid-sized and smaller players. New research released by Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy and Resources for the Future estimates that a federal program to plug roughly half a million abandoned and so-called "orphaned" oil and gas wells could create as many as 120,000 jobs and reduce pollution.
The contract is for Equinor’s unmanned process platform at the Krafla field in the North Sea, with plans for tie-in to an Aker BP host platform in the North of Alvheim area. The announcement comes as Aker BP has stopped all nonsanctioned projects. The remaining two Phase 2 wells will come on stream in 2021. The unmanned development is expected to add 80 million BOE of production to the aging Norwegian North Sea field. Aker BP said it aims to produce 1 billion BOE from Valhall over the next 40 years.

Drone Used For World's First Logistics Operation to Equinor Platform The Norwegian company completed what it describes as the world’s first logistics operation with a drone to an offshore installation. Askeladd Vest is Phase 2 of the Snøhvit gas development, which is expected to see an FID this year. Sleipner’s share in net-zero emissions savings will be more than 150,000 tonnes per year. Although these look like ordinary tankers, they are unique and run on LNG and recovered oil vapors.
The tech giant and supermajor have been working on cloud solutions already, but in a new agreement, they will combine their talents to create new technologies for oil and gas as well as energy consumers. A new open innovation studio aims to use crowdsourcing to redefine the future of oil and gas exploration. To provide condition monitoring and combat fouling, the robot clings and moves along the hull walls. It is controlled via a 4G connection to clean and inspect the walls in line with individual vessel schedules developed through a proprietary algorithm and big data. The maritime technology company successfully completed a remote deadweight audit for a semisubmersible oil and gas drilling rig.
