Last fall, European Space Agency satellites detected huge plumes of methane leaking from the Yamal pipeline that carries natural gas from Siberia to Europe. Energy consultancy Kayrros estimated one leak was spewing out 93 tonnes of methane every hour. The UK’s offshore oil and gas industry has committed to halving operational emissions in the next decade, confirming its pathway to becoming a net-zero emissions basin by 2050. The cement industry is exploring carbon capture technology to reduce its carbon footprint.
A recovery in the energy industry is key to the oilfield water sector in the Permian. But the industry must address issues such as further research, regulatory changes, and technology. Centennial said in its 10-Q report for Q1 that the economic downturn increased the likelihood that the transaction would fail to close by its original timeline. Sourcing water, flowback water services threatened as D&Cs decline. Cutbacks in oil and gas production and drilling and completions will result in a decrease in produced water and will also lead to a reduction in water infrastructure investment. The fact sheet, in conjunction with other IPIECA water management guidance, is intended as a guide to explore opportunities to reuse produced water.
Askeladd Vest is Phase 2 of the Snøhvit gas development, which is expected to see an FID this year. The drop in US LNG exports comes amid a combination of weak demand, ample supply, additional capacity coming on line, and flexibility to cancel US cargoes. A recovery in the energy industry is key to the oilfield water sector in the Permian. But the industry must address issues such as further research, regulatory changes, and technology. Poland state officials said the terminal expansion is crucial to strengthening the country’s energy security by increasing its capacity to receive LNG and gas from European countries and decreasing its dependence on Russia.
A recovery in the energy industry is key to the oilfield water sector in the Permian. But the industry must address issues such as further research, regulatory changes, and technology. Sourcing water, flowback water services threatened as D&Cs decline. What are the impacts of the energy crunch on OCTG demand? Immersive technology on projects such as wellsite planning incorporates XR, drones, and collaboration.
PVT (fluid phase and volumetric behavior) impacts flow modeling in the reservoir, production pipes, and surface process facilities. Several special considerations are required for proper PVT description (sampling and modeling) of ultra-tight/shale formations. This course covers the key issues related to PVT in such systems: sampling, PVT lab tests, in-situ versus produced fluid streams, EOS and black-oil modeling, and transport properties such as viscosity and interfacial tension. A short review of non-conventional thermodynamics is also given, including capillarity and confinement on phase equilibria (e.g. Attendees will gain a fundamental understanding of key PVT issues related to development of ultra-tight unconventional resources, from dry gas to gas condensate and high-GOR light oils found in plays such Eagle Ford, Bakken, Montney, Anadarko, and Permian basins.
This course will discuss practical, state-of-the-art techniques for optimizing gas field assets -techniques that are based on the concept of integrated asset modeling (IAM), and working together through an asset team. In addition, because of the tremendous interest in developing and optimizing shale gas and tight oil field assets, around the world, an introduction to this topic is included in this course. Integration of reservoir, well inflow, wellbore, pipeline, and compressor models bring together all of the interested parties and allows for an integrated optimal solution, rather than different parties working in vacuum and arriving at solutions for the separate components that do not fit well. This course goes beyond standard nodal analysis courses available in the industry, as in this course the reservoir and facilities components are also incorporated. The instructors have extensive industry experience in optimizing gas field assets and using integrated asset modeling approach for achieving that objective.
Nearly everything’s on the table as companies aim to shore up portfolios by curtailing investments and dumping low-priority assets. The deal includes 15 global sites and over 1,700 staff expected to transfer to INEOS upon completion of the sale. The deal also follows BP’s announcement earlier in the month that it would cut 14% of its workforce. World energy is at a “pivotal moment,” says BP CEO in annual statistical review, which reveals contrasts, challenges in energy consumption, production, and emissions. Write-offs include billions for early-exploration-stage projects that the company will now cut.
The company’s first report on global emissions shows that, while the US emits the most, Canada has the highest emission intensity and Norway has the lowest. The combined effect of COVID-19 and an ongoing oil price war has ushered in one of the worst downturns for the energy industry in modern history. Yet, a bright side is shining through; flaring levels in the Permian Basin have fallen sharply and will continue to decline, a Rystad Energy report shows.
The Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has invited bids for partnership to raise production from 64 marginal fields that were given to the company by the government without bidding. As they are small in size, these fields are uneconomical for a larger company. Petrobras has taken a 65.3-billion Brazilian real ($11.2-billion) Qatar Petroleum entered into a farm-in agreement with Total E&P to acquire a 45% participating interest in two blocks located in the Ivorian-Tano basin, offshore the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire. National oil companies (NOCs) globally are estimated to cut exploration budgets by over a quarter on average in 2020, said Wood Mackenzie.
