Industry players get one-on-one insights from the experts.
In a case study from the Caspian Sea, accurate and detailed velocity analysis from a prestack depth migration was adapted to calculate accurate pressure prediction in an undrilled area.
New technology allows interpretation in three dimensions.
Natural gas is a natural bridge from hydrocarbons to alternative energy.
Bowleven Energy’s Sapele-1ST well in the Douala basin offshore Cameroon in West Africa has encountered 75 ft (23 m) of net hydrocarbon pay in the Omicron objectives.
It’s young, thick, and structurally and lithologically complex. But the Monterey shale is quickly moving past the science project stage.
East Africa emerges as a world-class play
A tool developed to access well, pipeline, and platform data in the GoM could facilitate and improve the BOEMRE risk assessment and MODU mooring approval process.
Riser friendly HMPE mooring lines – lighter, smaller and with a higher MBL than traditional polyester rope – are ready to move into deep water.
Brazil turned the corner with its flagging oil and gas sector in the late 1990s with a shake-up of Petrobras and the development of deepwater fields. One decade later, Brazil’s prolific presalt reserves put the country on the cusp of even faster production growth.
The fledgling company has found success through farm-ins, farm-outs, and technical savvy.
International shale development moves from abstract to concrete.
Unconventional gas has changed the landscape in North America and could do the same internationally. However, this new phase brings challenges that require a different mindset and operating model focused around efficiency, environmental sustainability, and integrated business planning.
A downhole sensor system that monitors temperature and pressure in the B annulus will help detect gas leaks.
The industry’s focus on well performance is increasing every year, driven by the need to maximize hydrocarbon recovery rates while striving to minimize the number of wells drilled on each field.
LWD improves recovery and economics at each phase of shale development.
A robust inversion methodology applied to high-quality wideband quadrupole LWD waveforms from a GoM well provided useful information for reservoir evaluation.
