Recommendations include changes to current forms and reports used to track flaring. The cement industry is exploring carbon capture technology to reduce its carbon footprint.
Around $90 billion, or 40% of the revenue from the top 50 players in the global service market, could potentially be replaced by energy transition projects, such as clean energy infrastructure and renewable energy production development services. The Hydrogen Offshore Production project identifies an alternative to decommissioning by providing reuse options for offshore infrastructure. It aims to prove the feasibility of decentralized hydrogen generation, storage, and distribution to provide a bulk hydrogen solution. Five key steps for shaping renewable energy projects are discussed. As part of the contract, Wood will provide the topside modifications needed for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind floating wind park with existing systems powering the facilities.

Geothermal resources in Indonesia are commonly located in spread mountain area and some scattered in small islands, such as in Nusa Tenggara and Maluku province. Small scale geothermal power plant with a wellhead type may be required for some geothermal field areas. In operation and maintenance of geothermal power plant usually need high skilled personnel. The real-time monitoring system (RTMS) becomes a promising option for performance analysis and optimization from a remote monitoring room. The performance engineer may execute some small scale power plant in different project sites. The monitoring needs the data variables related significantly to the production of power output. Therefore, finding an attractive-interface, and related variables data of power output, become an interesting issue in performance monitoring.
Lahendong organic Rankine cycle (ORC) power plant in North Sulawesi Indonesia, with a capacity of 500 kW, has implemented the RTMS. RTMS data, starting from the sensor reading up to the programmable logic controller (PLC) as a local data collector, transferred to the server (which placed in Germany) via the connection hub. From the server, the data stored on the database and visualize on the human-machine interface (HMI). The variables of the RMTS have been analyzed. The study includes analyzing the scatter-plot of the variables, plotting of the time variables, and applied the Pearson coefficient correlation (PCC) to discover the most related variables to the power output. The variables include brine inlet temperature, brine inlet pressure, hot water inlet temperature, hot water inlet pressure, and power output during the three months.
The result, the monitoring of the Lahendong ORC power plant gives positive feedback to the user, with interactive visualization data. The feedback shows that hot water temperature has the most robust correlation to the power output of the Lahendong ORC power plant with 0.91, close to 1 for PCC analysis.
In the future, machine learning analysis will be applied to RTMS on Lahendong, so that it will increase user experience and sharpening data analysis. The relocation of the server from Germany to Indonesia will be done to add decision-making features.
Expectedly, this paper can be a reference to other power plants and fields that apply RTMS as remote monitoring, taking into consideration the remote location of the geothermal field.
The author of The Prize talked recently about his newest book on the energy transition and what he sees as the most dynamic forces shaping the things to come. 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. 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.
Critics of the new rule call it a de facto ban on new drilling and completions that will affect large portions of the state’s undeveloped oil and gas properties. 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. This year’s outlook contains scenarios that suggest peak demand has already arrived because of a global pandemic and an accelerating energy transition. 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. 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%.

The largest US clean energy incubator has selected the city as the site for its second location, expanding Houston’s role as energy capital of the world beyond oil and gas. A recent report details national and global security threats related to climate change in the hopes that decision-makers and leaders will recognize the relationship between global warming and security. With a $10 million commitment from Shell, Rice University has launched Carbon Hub, a research initiative with the goal of creating a zero-emissions world by using oil and gas to create clean energy. French oil giant Total said it will not renew its membership of the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers association because the organization’s stance on climate issues does not align with its own. In this video from Bloomberg, Eldar Saetre, chief executive officer and president of Equinor, talks about the company's increased push into the offshore wind power market. Wood Mackenzie energy transition experts take on some of the trickiest questions about how to meet the world’s future energy needs while managing climate change.
Service firms are diversifying their portfolios, in part driven by large-scale budget cuts among operators since the industrywide downturn. Subsea advancements in the works include longer tiebacks, an underwater drone that lives on the seafloor, and a robotic manifold capable of actuating dozens of valves. Do these new capabilities, born of necessity, signal a sea change in industrywide technology development? The biennial SPE Offshore Europe conference will explore a diverse set of topics, including the application of digital technologies and preparing for a low-carbon energy future and ongoing work around standardization and decommissioning. Hurricane Energy is still on pace for first oil in 2019 for the Lancaster field, which may lead to more significant development in the UK North Sea.
