Are fugitive releases of natural gas and flaring environmental concerns? Can these be ameliorated today and even better in the future? What Is All This Talk About Emissions? Emissions are in the air and in the headlines every day. With growing regulations around all types of air emissions, are there ways that industry can deploy technologies cost-effectively in the current environment?
Approaches to carbon abatement using petroleum are discussed that have a strong chance to succeed in fulfilling technological and economic goals in reducing carbon. 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. Two technologies that may play a part in the decarbonization of the UK energy business are carbon capture, use, and storage and the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier and energy storer. This approach builds on the UK’s gas-network infrastructure, which can be repurposed to avoid becoming stranded.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are pleased to announce that the organizations will co-locate their annual meetings this year, both in-person and virtually. This unique experience will be held 12–14 October 2020 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, USA. The 2020 ATCE committee and SPE staff are carefully monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on our upcoming events. We will plan for and take precautionary measures to protect public health. Information about the virus is available from the World Health Organization.
Companies are facing intense and increasing investor scrutiny around environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors. Emissions, once the domain of the environmental engineers and sustainability and reporting groups, has become a boardroom and AGM topic, propelled by high-profile initiatives like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure and increased transparency around Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Investor and customer pressure on companies to deliver cleaner, lower emissions energy is ramping up. Changing regulation compounds the situation, making management and reporting of emissions even more complex to manage.
Water flooding is by far the most Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) technique utilised by the vast majority of reservoirs around. Management of water both in the reservoir and on the surface is critical to improving reservoir sweep, production and recovery that in turn deliver the greatest value and performance. This symposium offers a unique opportunity for participants to promote knowledge sharing and technology transfer with the aim of delivering world-class performance in water flooding given its criticality as an IOR method. Join technical experts from major NOC, IOC and service providers share their recent experiences and provide solutions to on-going challenges in this field.
Due to ongoing global public health concerns and following extensive consultation with our key partners and stakeholders, the co-located SPE Canada Unconventional Resources and Heavy Oil Conferences have been rescheduled to 15-16 September 2020. SPE is committed to delivering rich technical programs with participants from around the globe. We will be contacting all speakers, authors, exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees with regards to the new arrangements. Thank you for your understanding of these complex circumstances. The co-located SPE Canada Unconventional Resources and Heavy Oil Conferences are the premier platforms in North America to enable the exchange of information through case studies, technical advancements, and business strategies.
Armada to install ROV launch and recovery system on its fleet of robotic ships. Although these look like ordinary tankers, they are unique and run on LNG and recovered oil vapors. A new video by IOGP mixes animations with personal stories to illustrate the benefits of using standardized specifications in the oil and gas industry. InterMoor’s Marine Project team in Aberdeen successfully recovered the Ocean Power Technologies PowerBuoy after a 7-month trial in harsh North Sea winter conditions. A VLCC converted to FPSO, Liza Destiny has a production capacity of 120,000 B/D of oil.
