  • Enabling Safer Offshore Energy Operations: Current Advances in Safety and Risk Assessment

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 09/10/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Investigation of past incidents always reveal deficiencies that are not directly equipment-related, but may be non-technical in nature, such as procedural deviation, inadequate communication etc. Past risk assessment models only provide semi-quantitative approaches to incorporate them in the risk assessment and cannot capture their dynamic nature and dependency in a single model. Current research takes up the challenge of developing a framework and step-by-step methodology for quantitatively merging technical, operational, human and organizational factors contributing to the cumulative risk of a barrier failure. It also addresses their dynamic changes with time, considers their interactions with each other and incorporates the uncertainty of parameter estimation to assess the cumulative risk in a facility.

  • How Do We Quantify Subsurface Uncertainty and Reduce It?

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/02/2019 at 9:30 AM (EDT)

    ​All subsurface models derived from seismic and offset well data have uncertainties inherent in the data even after all possible steps have been taken to process the data to maximize the accuracy. There is, however, one more step that could be taken – to quantify the remaining uncertainty. This is a relatively new technology that has value in exploration and drilling. For drilling applications this means a statistical 3D earth model at the well location instead of a fixed, deterministic one.

  • Data Science Project from End to End: A Sucker-Rod Pump Example

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/16/2019 at 11:30 AM (EDT)

    The concepts behind the digital oilfield will be discussed and how they fit together into creating an ecosystem to deliver value. Concrete elements will be presented that illustrate the entire value chain and technology stack necessary to deliver on the promise of the digital oilfield. We illustrate this vision with a concrete example in which live data from an entire oilfield full of sucker-rod pumps is fed into a central facility, analyzed for predictive maintenance, and used to perform proactive maintenance on the pumps.
