Toxic and invisible oil spread well beyond the known satellite footprint of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, according to a new study led by scientists at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Long-term studies of oil spill responders are urgently needed as oil spills continue to occur. To this end, the prospective Deepwater Horizon (DWH) Oil Spill Coast Guard Cohort study was established . DWH oil spill responders and nonresponders who were members of the US Coast guard were included. A team of researchers from the University of Houston is working with the oil industry to develop new ways to predict when an offshore drilling rig is at risk for a potentially catastrophic accident.
The energy major said it plans to reduce emission intensity by 5–10% for upstream oil production and by 2–5% for upstream gas. The 33-month project will compare emissions data collected by terrestrial sensors to GHGSat's combined satellite and aircraft measurements. Research by Drexel University and the University of Colorado at Boulder suggests that imposing fees on energy producers that emit greenhouse gas could improve the health and financial well-being of the Rocky Mountain region. The oil and gas major has set aside $100 million to fund projects that will deliver new greenhouse gas emissions reductions in its upstream oil and gas operations. Chevron plans to set greenhouse gas emissions targets and tie executive compensation and rank-and-file bonuses to the reductions, the oil major said in its latest climate report.
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 solutions to provide a bulk hydrogen solution. If we must reduce emissions to make our industry “greener,” what are some of the options that we can apply? The cement industry is exploring carbon capture technology to reduce its carbon footprint. Goal is to reduce plant emissions profile and boost sustainability in production.
If a contest or a division is not held in your assigned region, you can request to present your paper in an assigned alternate region. Every region has only one alternate region. To make an alternate region paper request, or if the alternate region is not holding a contest, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. COVID-19 Updates: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent restrictions on travel, all Regional SPC competitions are aiming to run as virtual competitions. A guide on how this will be run can be found in the Student Paper Contest Video Conferencing Guide (pdf).
How do I become a Student Member of SPE? To become a student member, visit our Join page. For help with the sign-up process, watch our video guide on how to join SPE as a Student Member. How can I check my SPE membership? Log into your SPE Profile to manage your membership, maintain your contact information, education records and check your Section and Chapter status.
ALP visits can either be requested by a school or university (regardless of whether it has an established SPE Student Chapter), individual students, or arranged by the SPE Section. Students – Contact your SPE Chapter Faculty Advisor who can help request a young professional to give a lecture. If your school does not have an SPE contact ask your Department Head to request a visit by emailing us at email@example.com. Lecturers – You can register to become an Ambassador Lecturer through the League of Volunteers. Once you are approved, you will be listed as an Ambassador Lecturer in your area.
University of Houston Energy asked 408 industry workers to gauge their companies’ response to the global pandemic and economic downturn. A partnership between academic researchers and two energy companies will build new evidence-based tools to enhance safety by examining whether simple exercises designed to increase mindfulness can reduce the risks. A team of researchers from the University of Houston is working with the oil industry to develop new ways to predict when an offshore drilling rig is at risk for a potentially catastrophic accident.
