Efficiency and uptime are key across all industries, but especially so in E&P where safe and secure operations are critical. Increasingly more of those operations utilize hardware and software solutions to communicate between the field and office. This increased application use coupled with high volume of server requests place an increased burden on shared storage resources that adversely impact application performance. One way to overcome these storage bottlenecks that degrade application performance in virtual environments is through the use of high speed server resources like flash storage. By putting storage performance on the server tier, companies can accelerate virtual workloads while extending the life of existing storage assets. 

This webinar will present how KBR, a global technology, engineering, procurement and construction company, has embarked on a corporate travel strategic optimization initiative with the support of TCG Consulting to deliver $15-20M in spend reduction while also enhancing spend visibility, improving the user experience and maintaining infrastructure scalability to enable quick response to changing market conditions.

This webinar will explore automation, intelligence and innovation in Upstream Oil and Gas Land Management and acquisition and divestiture (A&D) transactions. Advanced text analytic capabilities are now available to automatically understand, identify and extract key elements, provisions and events from leases. Upstream operators and non-operators can leverage these new technologies to lower G&A, reduce risk during acquisitions, and provide a clear and accurate picture to buyers during a divestiture.

How 3-D image-based petrophysical properties such as porosity, permeability and wettability impact recovery and contribute to the faster development of a more accurate reservoir model.

When lab results and log measurements are inconsistent, inconclusive or conflicting, it can be an ‘all hands on deck’ exercise to unravel the data and get to the truth.  However, in many cases the necessary data points such as wettability, capillary pressure and relative permeability can be months, if not years, away from input to the reservoir model.  Guesstimates can lead to over- or under-inflated evaluations of recoverable hydrocarbons and can greatly impact production predictions – ultimately compromising decision-making that effects CAPEX investments in downstream infrastructure.
Digital rock is a relatively new discipline that advances traditional core analysis by using high-resolution microscopy imaging systems and 3-D visualization techniques to analyze the microstructural rock features of core samples. Using process- or image-based modeling, digital rock creates an accurate representation of the pore-scale internal rock architecture in 3-D by incorporating micro- and nano-scale structures such as grain size, contact angles, pore network connectivity, mineralogy, and clay content (to name a few). The models can be used to generate multi-phase fluid flow simulations that provide advanced rock and fluid properties in less time than traditional measurements – a first look at the dynamics contributing to ultimate recovery.
In this webinar, you will: 
•    Learn about digital rock modeling and how simulated multi-phase flow properties can deliver answers faster and with greater insight than traditional measurements.
•    Discover the many instances where digital rock analysis can provide answers which are either difficult or impossible to obtain by more conventional methods.
•    Understand how the combination of imaging and pore-scale modelling can lead to more accurate estimates of properties like residual hydrocarbon saturations.

 

The Coriolis Principle enables the precise mass flow rate, density and temperature measurement, in return calculates the volumetric flow rate, flow velocity and even the possibility to provide the concentration of a medium mixture.

In this presentation, you will learn how automated analysis of thin sections and trim ends can help reduce the risk of “Orphaned Data” and bring rocks back into the mainstream E&P workflow. Using scanning electron microscopy and visualization and processing software from FEI, geologists and petrophysicists can gain statistically relevant answers faster and more accurately than with standard point counting. 

Sucker rod lift pumping systems have a long history as a proven method of artificial oil lift. More than 20 years ago, fiberglass sucker rods were introduced as an alternative to steel sucker rods. Recent fiberglass rod technology improvements have created compelling advantages over traditional steel sucker rods. In this webinar, John Crane will discuss how fiberglass sucker rods can outperform steel sucker rods by increasing production, reducing capital and operating expenses, improving corrosion resistance and handling higher loads than previous technologies. Specific examples will be used to illustrate how these benefits are achieved and recent technology development will be presented. What you will learn: How fiberglass sucker rods outperform steel sucker rods in oil production, corrosion resistance, capital cost and operating expense. Case study examples of how oil well operators can increase production and reduce costs with fiberglass sucker rods.

Like most process industries, oil and gas operations may be using outdated control systems with components nearing end-of-life. While this can be an opportunity to upgrade to the latest automation technologies, especially to boost efficiencies and operating margins, the risk of disruption and downtime can forestall the needed steps to move ahead. But operators can minimize that risk with careful planning and consideration of the steps outlined in this webinar. 

Overview: Alternative drilling techniques have unlocked vast reserves of gas, but getting that gas to market remains problematic due to limited pipeline infrastructure. In this webinar, George Boyajian of Primus Green Energy will discuss monetization of stranded gas assets using an economically attractive gas-to-liquids (GTL) approach. GTL systems based on STG+™ technology can profitably convert natural gas and NGLs into high value liquids, such as methanol or gasoline. Specific case studies will be presented detailing the economic and technical aspects of STG+™ systems deployed at the gas gathering and processing levels. What you will learn: • How small-scale GTL systems are valuable gas monetization tools for producers and gas processors • Project specific GTL plant economics - capex, opex, return on investment • Technical overview of the STG+™ GTL process – conversion efficiencies, product specs, feed gas requirements

Agile Upstream and Abbyy Software, USA present: "Using Cognitive Software to Transform the Acquisition and Divestiture Process." This webinar will explore how advancements in text analytics are shaping new industries and are poised to transform oil and gas exploration and production. During the session, a demonstration of Agile Land Insights will be provided, an application purpose-built to bring E&P into an era of lower-cost, highly accurate lease and contract management. Agile Land Insights reduces G&A, minimizes clawback risk in a sale, and provides complete clarity for your acquisition opportunities - all without outsourcing or exposing your data to outside parties.
