Train 7 is scheduled for commissioning by 2024 and would bring total capacity of Nigeria LNG’s complex to 30 mtpa. OTC announces Distinguished Achievement Awards for 2020. Eni credits an integrated work model for the startup just 3 weeks after completion. Under the model, various disciplines worked in parallel from the exploration phase and synergies with existing production facilities were leveraged. After failing to meet a previous 2018 deadline, the owners of the Bonny Island plant say they are close to sanctioning the expansion project following the signing of a letter of intent to a consortium of Saipem Chiyoda and Daewoo for EPC services.
The EPSO surveys were completed offshore Mexico for Total and Cairn in compliance with requirements of Mexico’s National Agency for Safety, Energy, and Environment. The Mozambique LNG project expects to achieve financial close in Q3. With contracts canceled and pressures mounting, offshore oil drillers struggle to stay afloat. With contracts canceled and pressures mounting, offshore oil drillers struggle to stay afloat. Goal is to reduce plant emissions profile and boost sustainability in production.
Country had hoped to boost oil output and bring in much-needed revenues. The well will immediately be brought on production and is expected to flow at more than 100 MMscf/D of gas and 3,000 B/D of associated condensate, the company said. The French major is racking up barrels of deepwater production as part of its large-scale West African push. Since 2007, an operator in Nigeria has registered a significant increase of oil-spill events caused by sabotage and oil-theft activities. The technology presented here allows detecting and locating leaks taking place at a distance from the sensor of up to 35 km.
Garden Banks Pipeline was notified that the Sea Robin delivery point was also made available after Enbridge lifted its force majeure. A platform connecting to the Garden Banks pipeline was undamaged by Hurricane Laura, but Enbridge declared force majeure after inspecting the facilities. For the seventh straight year, the regulatory body has found offshore operations continue to improve based on an efficiency model developed in partnership with the SPE. In its push to boost deepwater production, Petrobras is aiming to launch a leasing tender to build an FPSO described as Brazil’s largest-ever oil platform. Decommissioning work begins in the Campos and the Sergipe-Alagoas Basins. Awards are expected to recover to seven vessels next year.
Drone Used For World's First Logistics Operation to Equinor Platform Armada to install ROV launch and recovery system on its fleet of robotic ships. Although these look like ordinary tankers, they are unique and run on LNG and recovered oil vapors. A new video by IOGP mixes animations with personal stories to illustrate the benefits of using standardized specifications in the oil and gas industry. InterMoor’s Marine Project team in Aberdeen successfully recovered the Ocean Power Technologies PowerBuoy after a 7-month trial in harsh North Sea winter conditions. A VLCC converted to FPSO, Liza Destiny has a production capacity of 120,000 B/D of oil.
The single independent riser (SIR) is a hybrid riser configuration optimized for ultradeepwater field development. The SIR is composed of a flexible jumper and a rigid part vertically tensioned by means of distributed or continuous buoyancy. This paper describes an automated work flow that uses sensor data and machine-learning (ML) algorithms to predict and identify root causes of impending and unplanned shutdown events and provide actionable insights. The Monument well represents the Norwegian operator’s first deepwater drilling project in US waters in 5 years. Transocean reported a long list of reasons why the deepwater drilling business is coming back strong.
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. After 2 years of testing, Shell is going all in on using high-flying technology to catch methane leaks to reduce its overall emissions to less than 1%. Winning innovators focused on environment, safety, and operational efficiency. The area has a potential for up to 11.8 million bbl of recoverable oil reserves. The program aims to keep oil flowing in the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, which has seen dwindling throughput since 1988.
Phase 1 involved a feasibility study for a facility capable of capturing 750,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. The next phase will explore building a facility capable of more than twice that amount. Winning innovators focused on environment, safety, and operational efficiency. Operators celebrate first major deepwater project sanctioned since the early-2020 oil crash. Nearly everything’s on the table as companies aim to shore up portfolios by curtailing investments and dumping low-priority assets.
For the offshore sector, the collapse in oil demand and prices came just as the market was beginning to look up. Now many companies are focused on survival. This article discusses how various market segments, regions, and companies are faring in “the new reality.” The five discoveries combined hold an estimated 1.8 billion bbl of light oil in place. A major operator manages multiple deepwater projects in the Gulf of Guinea.
Africa (Sub-Sahara) Eni successfully completed a new production well in the Vandumbu field, 350 km northwest of Luanda and 130 km west of Soyo, in the West Hub of Block 15/06 offshore Angola. The VAN-102 well is being produced through the N'Goma FPSO and achieved initial production of 13,000 BOED. Production from this well and another well in the Mpungi field will bring Block 15/06 output to 170,000 BOED. Anglo African Oil & Gas encountered oil at the TLP-103C well at its Tilapia license offshore the Republic of Congo. The well intersected the targeted Djeno horizon, and wireline logging confirmed the presence of a 12-m oil column in the Djeno. Total started production from the ultra-deepwater Egina field in approximately 1600 m of water 150 km off the coast of Nigeria. At plateau, the field will produce 200,000 B/D. Total operates the field with 24% interest, in partnership with NNPC, CNOOC, SAPETRO, and Petrobras.
