New control chemistries help operators keep wells producing and prevent degradation of production value.
New proppant shows increase in oil, gas production volume and speed during field-testing.
Advances in at-site treatment of NADF cuttings waste now enable the use of these fluids for best operational performance with the smallest drilling waste footprint possible.
Proper selection of proppants impacts the cost of well completion as well as production over the life of the well. Proper education and communication will ensure the right proppant is selected.
Having a facility more than 300 km (186 miles) offshore connected to ultra-deepwater subsea equipment that needs regular servicing means operators are looking for topsides solutions that can reduce cost.
An aerial ROV solution has given Centrica a vital ‘eye in the sky’ to help it carry out improved offshore inspection operations with lower risks.
Technology opens new areas while unlocking additional potential in established Permian basin plays.
With the growth of a fleet of CLD-ready rigs, deepwater drilling operations are poised to benefit from advantages based on closed-loop systems.
Today’s software platforms can be employed to optimize deepwater operations every step of the way – long before the rig arrives on location.
Collaboration between the disciplines of geoscience, engineering, and real-time microseismic monitoring improves exploration success.
New DAS system provides complete wellbore evaluation.
A case study from the UAE includes complex depth imaging.
Though hugely compute-intensive, the FWI method holds promise in capturing waveform information in seismic data.
Leaseholder issues can sidetrack the best land acquisition schemes.
Seven years ago BHP Billiton Petroleum’s board of directors had an epiphany. Now their dreams are becoming reality.
Data abound indicating that more CO2 in the atmosphere might actually be a desirable outcome.
Can seismic technology improve success rates in the E&P of oil and gas from shale and tight sand?
China is hungry for energy, looking to sustain and grow its conventional oil and gas production, invigorate its unconventional sector, and kick-start the exploitation of its potentially huge shale gas reserves.
