These elements may sound like items on a scavenger hunt list, but with Energy4me they can upcycle and help students track down a career in engineering. The SPE Women in Energy committee works to create opportunities for women to enable them to step into leadership roles and pursue their career goals.
Actions to decarbonize operations and operations during the COVID-19 pandemic are among the highlights. Royal Dutch Shell will announce a major restructuring by the end of the year as the energy company prepares to accelerate its shift toward low carbon, Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden told employees, a company source said. The oil and gas industry was created by fierce entrepreneurs, wildcatters, and visionaries. But, in the last 50 years, it has lost its way. The industry desperately needs a paradigm shift. Here are four pillars upon which we think the reinvention of the oil and gas industry should be based. The company is creating two new business groups: Natural Resources, focused on developing the upstream oil and gas portfolio sustainably, and Energy Evolution, dedicated to supporting the evolution of the company’s power generation, product transformation, and marketing. Launched in collaboration with industry leaders and academia, the Microsoft Energy Core aims to accelerate digital transformation, build coalitions for responsible innovation, deliver skilling initiatives, and address sustainability and societal challenges. The controversial surveying technique has been used around Australia to look for oil and gas, but some environmentalists and scientists have warned the effects on marine life could be deadly.
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.
What Are the Security Challenges of the Oil and Gas Market? Protecting the oil and gas market is key to a thriving economy. The list of security challenges for oil and gas requires the best technology solutions the industry has to offer. A panel of experts addresses the question "What are the security challenges of the oil and gas market?" As the world’s top oil producers prepared for a weeklong meeting in April to plan a response to slumping prices of crude, espionage hackers commenced a sophisticated spearphishing campaign that was concentrated on US-based energy companies. Malaysia’s push to explore energy blocks off its coast has turned into a five-nation face off involving US and Chinese warships, raising the risk of a direct confrontation as broader tensions grow between the world’s biggest economies.
Can safety professionals leverage the spotlight on the profession to push correction and compliance? The platform, created by DrillingVR and safety group DROPS, has been designed to present online space for collaboration, meetings, and learning about dropped-object prevention. Between your current level of safety performance and excellent safety performance there is a gap. If you are going to reach excellence, you must bridge that gap. Before you can bridge it, you must identify the basic elements that create it. Energy companies began preparations to resume oil and gas production in the US Gulf of Mexico a day after Tropical Storm Cristobal blew through with high winds and heavy rains. The testing, inspection, and certification company is reporting a 900% rise in demand for the remote inspection of offshore assets and equipment since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report from the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers is in relation to a person who used alcohol-based hand gel sanitizer and, after application but before the liquid had fully evaporated, touched a metal surface, where a build-up of static ignited the alcohol. AltaML has announced a partnership with engineering and design firm Kleinfelder in which the two companies will pair 3D reality scans of facilities with artificial intelligence to look for potential problems and risks.
