The Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT) offers a wide range of print and digital advertising opportunities for companies who want to reach our highly qualified audience. In addition to ads in a variety of sizes and locations, the JPT Newsletter is another valuable opportunity to get your name in front of a wide range of E&P professionals. Times are tough -- what you need are customers. JPT has a variety of ways that you can reach our highly qualified audience -- the ones who often select and recommend products throughout the value chain. Our newsletter reaches a very large audience of both SPE members and nonmembers across the global industry.
Oil and Gas Facilities (OGF) is SPE’s web publication dedicated to the engineering disciplines involved in upstream projects, facilities, construction, production, and operations. Its content helps readers improve processes and operations to optimize onshore, offshore, and subsea production. Technical detail is presented for facilities engineers to use in their design of projects and equipment. OGF keeps you informed about trends, project updates, synopses of selected SPE technical papers, people on the move, and new technologies. OGF offers a wide range of digital advertising opportunities for companies who want to reach our highly qualified audience.
Thank you to our Sponsors and Supporters! Thank you to our Sponsors and Supporters! Keeping the health and safety of our members, delegates, sponsors, and exhibitors at the forefront of the decision-making and guided by our stakeholders the decision was made to deliver the events virtually. A virtual platform can replicate the experience of being at an ‘in-person’ conference with a lobby, technical session rooms, exhibition hall and networking areas. With a virtual event, attendees take part in secure, online experiences from the comfort and convenience of their home or office.
A Monte Carlo model is, in principle, just a worksheet in which some cells contain probability distributions rather than values. Thus, one can build a Monte Carlo model by converting a deterministic worksheet with the help of commercial add-in software. Practitioners, however, soon find that some of their deterministic models were constructed in a way that makes this transition difficult. Redundancy, hidden formulas, and contorted logic are common features of deterministic models that encumber the resulting Monte Carlo model. Likewise, presentation of results from probabilistic analysis might seem no different from any other engineering presentation (problem statement, summary and conclusions, key results, method, and details).
Capturing and reporting employee health data in a manner that accurately portrays overall workforce health, provides business opportunities for improvement and motivates both individuals and business units to take action in a global corporation. This paper details an approach for developing customizable business unit wellness dashboards that provide timely and relevant information that facilitates decision making, action and/or behavior change related to employee health.
This new approach involves aggregating multiple data sources into a common repository and creating multiple views of this data for health analytics. Dashboard templates have been created that require minimal expertise to generate comprehensive wellness reports. Additionally, any data category can be visualized based on the local business unit's preference and priorities to maximize wellness engagement. Communication campaigns share importance and relevance of the wellness dashboard to an additional audience by customizing views at the local level to ensure highest engagement. Initial dashboards will include user satisfaction and engagement numbers.
Combining established software tools and applications can aid in data visualization and analysis creating e-opportunities to display and discuss meaningful and useful health data across the organization in many ways. Different audiences not only create different data, but the dialogue surrounding their specific data set creates an environment for culture change. Influential factors include level of wellness program maturity, staff load capacity, competing priorities and fundamental leadership support at the local level will affect usage levels and satisfaction. Customizing meaningful data for specific audiences can increase understanding of data specifically related to programs, initiatives, awareness/prevalence and educate target audiences to why data is important and the opportunities to positively influence health-related issues. This understanding will provide an impetus to 'act' on the data to drive individual health behaviors or allow leaders to support their employees and company offered programs.
This dashboard provides the ability to take standardized data at a high level and view it through a local business unit lens. This allows enhanced connections to local priorities and can drive program development in needed areas, employee participation and improved employee health.
All professionals--scientist, engineers, etc.--must write. This includes those annoying reports, proposals, and all their cousins, most of which do not receive proper external editing and many of which barely satisfy their audiences. In addition, many professionals must publish. Here the audiences are more diffuse-- the next office, next floor, next building, cross town, cross the country, or cross the world--and here, again, many of these documents barely satisfy or fall short of satisfying their audiences. Simply, work not published is work not recognized and credit not received.
Of all the programs that SPE offers, the most rewarding and enjoyable ones for me personally are the conferences. I love walking the floor of an exhibition hall, discovering the latest technology advancements, and listening to the various product demonstrations. I look forward to running into fellow SPE members in the vast conference halls and catching up on what they’ve been doing since we last met. When exiting the room of a technical session, I like being able to turn to the person next to me and ask their opinion about the presentations we just heard. Finally, I relish being able to attend the receptions and luncheons to network with industry colleagues.
Sand production is a worldwide problem that results in billions of dollars of losses due to delayed/lost production and workover costs. Various techniques are available to control sand production, but gravel packing is recognized as one of the most reliable, so long as a complete pack is achieved in the annulus around the screens. However, as gravel pack applications extend to more challenging environments, including longer intervals and deep water, higher pressures and tighter pore/frac pressure windows are increasing the risk of bridging and making it more difficult to achieve complete packs. Placement technique selection and treatment design are therefore more critical than ever, the key to which lies in the ability to accurately model downhole process to fully understand the potential risks, identify their mitigation measures and assess the benefits of applying the latest technology. Ultimately, optimal technique selection is a balance between cost and perceived risk for any given well.
