International SOS has led medical services operations on offshore installations globally and has managed clinical cases in which patients presented with signs and symptoms of known infectious illnesses. In 2013, ExxonMobil PNG facilitated a public/private partnership to improve healthcare education at the University of Papua New Guinea and clinical management in child health at Port Moresby General Hospital and other facilities. Women living near oil and gas production sites where natural gas is flared may be at a higher risk of giving birth preterm, a team of California researchers reported. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued a COVID-19 control and prevention guidance for oil and gas industry workers and employers. The two companies have teamed up to provide COVID-19 testing for oil and gas companies that want to test their employees at headquarters and remote rig locations across the country. State regulators have failed to prevent Pennsylvania’s natural gas drilling industry from sickening people and poisoning air and water, a grand jury concluded in a report issued after a 2-year investigation. Indonesia is home to numerous oil and gas fields, and upstream oil and gas activities are integral to the country's economic growth.

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. Every attendee leaves energised with a full list of ideas and a support network of fellow leaders. Those sections and student chapters actively participating in this workshop have consistently been recognized with awards as the best in SPE. SPE Cares is a global volunteering drive aimed at promoting, supporting and participating in community services at the SPE section and student chapter’s level. On its official launch this year at ATCE Dubai, SPE Cares will conduct a “Give a Ghaf” Tree Planting Programme to help preserve Ghaf’s cultural and ecological heritage. The Ghaf tree is an indigenous species, specific to UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia. It is a drought tolerant, evergreen tree that can survive a harsh desert environment. The initiative not only aims to hold events/activities at ATCE, but also recognise community service that SPE members are already conducting in their respective student chapters and professional sections. The KEY Club, open daily, is an exclusive lounge for key SPE members. The lounge is open to those with 25 years or more of continuous membership, Century Club members, current and former SPE Board officers and directors, Honorary and Distinguished Members, as well as this year’s SPE International Award Winners and Distinguished Lecturers. DSATS (SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) will hold a half-day symposium featuring keynote presentations on urban automation. This symposium will explore technologies being used in developing smart cities through the automation of their infrastructure, transportation systems, energy distribution, water systems, street lighting, refuse collection, etc. These efforts rely on many of the same tools needed for drilling systems automation yielding increased efficiencies, lower maintenance and reduced emissions. Their knowledge and experience can guide the path being travelled by the oilfield drilling industry.
The growing popularity of model-based optimization work flows has resulted in an increase in their application to field cases. This paper presents an unbiased stochastic data-driven work flow in which surface and subsurface uncertainties are accounted for and their effects on facilities design and operational decisions are quantified. Three-dimensional reservoir models are best created with a combination of well logs and 3D-seismic data. However, the effective integration of these results is not easy because of limited seismic resolution.
Models were developed for these wells for future water-production prediction and a spatial analysis was also conducted. This study summarizes hydrate-inhibition practices for these sea lines, and indicates a possibility of using them as indirect thermometers to provide important physical oceanographic data. Results of the experimental and numerical heat-transfer analysis conducted on a T-shaped acrylic-glass pipe, representing a production header in a subsea production system with a vertical deadleg. Oily waste, is an intrinsic byproduct of the oil and gas industry and thermal desorption units with an odor-treatment system can bring technical and economic advantages to the user. The Hail 3D transition-zone seismic survey carried out by ADNOC is located in a UNESCO world-biosphere reserve. Effective environmental and ecological management throughout the project was attained through working procedures and monitoring programs. The understanding of solid-particle flow regimes in pipelines for any operational conditions is important for identifying the nature of particle interaction and movement. In this paper, a comprehensive analysis of solid-particle flow regimes in stratified flow in a horizontal pipeline is presented.
An intelligent drilling optimization application performs as an adaptive autodriller. In the Marcellus Shale, ROP improved 61% and 39% and drilling performance, measured as hours on bottom, improved 25%. With their gee-whiz—albeit artificial—intelligence, robots may be the industry’s answer to jobs deemed dangerous, dirty, distant, or dull. A test showing that it’s possible to automate the billing process for produced water hauling has opened the door for tracking a wide range of field activities. The industry downturn brought on by COVID-19 has motivated big companies to test practical applications sooner.
Hydrogen is big news, and not for the first time. But this time could be different. This article looks at the current state of enabling technology, obstacles to a hydrogen economy, and signs that the hydrogen economy could be emerging. Often it is too difficult to create the fault conditions necessary for training a predictive maintenance algorithm on the actual machine. A digital twin generates simulated failure data which can then be used to design a fault-detection algorithm. Canadian Oil Sands Output Cut 1 Million B/D: What Could Go Wrong? Oil sands producers predicted they could reduce production by 300,000 B/D by turning down steam injection. This will test methods to reduce, rather than stop, injection to avoid the damage caused by rapid cooling in some wells.
The Pennsylvania-based producer will leave Louisiana where profiting from tight-gas fields has proven difficult and focus on its legacy assets in the Marcellus Shale. Supermajor announces actions to achieve net-zero ambition and reshape business. It also noted that it will not seek to explore in countries where it does not already have upstream activities. Often it is too difficult to create the fault conditions necessary for training a predictive maintenance algorithm on the actual machine.
