Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. Global deepwater exploration and development activity is on the upswing driven by an anticipated long-term increase in worldwide demand for hydrocarbons. Recent technological innovations have helped the industry to improve the economics and reliability of deepwater projects. Business and technical drivers vary by locations, but all rely on the continuing cost-effectiveness of efficiently designing, drilling and completing wells. Techniques are being adopted that involve advanced interdisciplinary planning and real-time adjustments to deliver highly productive wells.
In the complete paper, the authors reduce nonuniqueness and ensure physically feasible results in multiwell deconvolution by incorporating constraints and knowledge to methodology already established in the literature. In the complete paper, the authors revisit fundamental concepts of reservoir simulation in unconventional reservoirs and summarize several examples that form part of an archive of lessons learned. In the complete paper, a novel hybrid approach is presented in which a physics-based nonlocal modeling framework is coupled with data-driven clustering techniques to provide a fast and accurate multiscale modeling of compartmentalized reservoirs. Machine learning enables fast, cost-effective, and accurate methane emissions detection in remote areas. This paper describes a smart-tracer-portfolio testing and design solution for multistage hydraulic fracturing that will, write the authors, enable operators to reduce operating cost significantly and optimize production in shale wells.
With contracts canceled and pressures mounting, offshore oil drillers struggle to stay afloat. With contracts canceled and pressures mounting, offshore oil drillers struggle to stay afloat. 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. Westwood Global Energy’s analysis looks at production, cost, and revenue estimates in the UK and Norway, should oil prices remain low.
This paper describes the successful delivery of one ultrahigh-rate gas well (more than 250 MMscf/D) completed in a significant gas field offshore Israel with 7-in. In this paper, gravel-pack pore size is evaluated further by use of the permeability of the gravel pack and other methods. A new sizing method is proposed that is based on the effective formation size and the gravel-pack pore size. An operator successfully executed two wireline through-tubing gas-shutoff (GSO) workovers in high-angle openhole-gravel-pack (OHGP) completions to isolate high-gas/oil-ratio (HGOR) zones, resulting in significantly increased oil production.
The chief upstream strategist of IHS Markit said in a recent presentation that oil exploration must improve its ability to deliver value and better communicate that value to the financial community. New ways of thinking about exploration opportunities are needed. Producers in Oklahoma’s newly opened Merge play are sitting atop a resource that rivals some major world gas fields and discoveries, Citizen Energy’s Geology CEO Greg Augsburger told the SPE Gulf Coast Section Business Development Group recently. The Austin Chalk play could go through a revival if the industry can view the formation through “a fresh set of eyes,” says EnerVest’s Tony Maranto. Dimethyl-ether (DME) -enhanced waterflood (DEW) is a process in which DME is added to injection water and, upon injection, preferentially partitions into the remaining oil.

Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. Thus, it is crucial to design and conduct well completions in such a manner to protect workers, minimize risks to the environment, and effectively partner with local communities. This workshop engaged experts and attendees to better understand and enhance the best HSE practices for well completions. Well completions, especially hydraulic fracturing, continue to be a significant topic of interest for the public. Thus, it is crucial to design and conduct well completions in such a manner to protect workers, minimize risks to the environment, and effectively partner with local communities.
Askeladd Vest is Phase 2 of the Snøhvit gas development, which is expected to see an FID this year. The proposed Russian LNG project would sell LNG to Asia by 2025. It is the latest in a handful of LNG projects slated for Russia. The A-frame is DNV certified. In partnership with TechnipFMC, DNV GL opened a pilot project for the international collaboration of operators and the supply chain.
CB&I Storage Solutions joins a list of contractors working on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. McDermott’s restructuring comes 5 months after it filed for Chapter 11 protection. The company was struggling with debt since its 2018 acquisition of CB&I. McDermott’s completion comes 19 months after it was first awarded. SapuraOMV achieved first production from the Larak gas field in January.
