Rex Tillerson leads the charge as ExxonMobil embraces new energy strategies.
A new acquisition methodology provides ‘acceptable’ data at considerable cost savings.
A vessel due out in 2013 not only will tackle decommissioning projects, it will be the largest pipelay vessel in the world.
The perennial shortage of water for hydraulic fracturing has encouraged the use of flowback, produced, and other non-freshwater sources in stimulation operations, but there are concerns.
Once again, technology brings a solution to the frac water situation with a treatment process that can be customized to fit operators’ needs.
In the past, total sand remediation was a multistage activity. Now, a new online integrated separator/cleaner does the task in a continuous process.
Water from oil and gas production streams is the most significant liquid discharge associated with E&P operations. As water concerns become greater, more companies are investing in technologies to resolve water management issues and increase production.
Western Energy managing director Steven Marshall shares some of the challenges his company faces as it pioneers drilling in an emerging play.
Drilling is in full swing offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nova Scotia is gearing up to offer data to potential investors.
A solution to understand reservoir response, spot early trends, and improve well test quality can be achieved by monitoring electrical submersible pump (ESP) data.
A flexible slimhole system is key to improving drilling efficiency in challenging wells.
New images reveal shale secrets.
Mapping impedance helps high-grade locations.
The exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons involves finding the right kind of rock with the right kind of fluids, at the right depth, and in the correct container – with the ability to lift them without disturbing the environment. Rock physics is the glue that bonds these processes together.
The offshore oil and gas industry is at a major crossroads over how it tackles decommissioning. Spiraling costs combined with the ever-crucial integrity challenges are posing serious issues.
In the US GoM, delays in approving decommissioning projects will continue to increase unless government resources are added to the permitting process.
What you see at the shakers can be deceiving.
An aggressive drilling program anchored by rotary steerable systems (RSS) has paid off in Eagle Ford.
Today, in deepwater West Africa, complex, 3-D, and high-angle extended-reach wells are drilled routinely to access wider areas of the reservoir and minimize field development cost.
Deepwater drilling experience does not occur naturally. One operator proves that, even though the learning curve is steep, diving in has its advantages.
