An Action Plan for Carbon Capture and Storage in California: Opportunities, Challenges and SolutionsIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 01/26/2021 at 11:00 AM (EST)
California is a leader in addressing climate change. With some of the strongest decarbonization targets in the country—40 percent emission reductions by 2030, carbon neutrality by 2045, and net-negative emissions thereafter—California continues to pursue innovative policies to achieve ambitious emissions reductions. The Stanford Center for Carbon Storage and EFI recently released a joint study analyzing key options, including a set of technologies and support infrastructure for Carbon Capture and Storage that could enable some “quick wins”.
Digital Transformation for Traditional Sector – Did We Get It All Wrong?Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 01/27/2021 at 9:30 AM (EST)
Nearly every industry is taken by the excitement of digital transformation (DX). Most professional conferences and magazines are allocating sections on digital. The level of adoption and successful outcome ranges from digital native companies in one end of the spectrum, B2C and banking sector being immediately following, through Oil & Gas, Chemicals, and industrial construction just waking up to the efficiency gain, cost reduction, and improved safety possible through DX.
New Research in Multiphase Flow Characterization for Extended Reach WellsIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 01/27/2021 at 10:00 AM (EST)
The hydrocarbon reserves of conventional/unconventional sources will remain a major source of the world’s energy supply even with the fastest growth of other energy sources including renewable energy. The petroleum and energy industry must be capable of low-energy intensive extraction and transportation of these resources, in an environmentally benign manner.
How Will Subsea Processing Technologies Enable Future Deepwater Field Developments?Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 01/28/2021 at 1:00 PM (EST)
This talk presents on how subsea processing technologiees be the enabling technologies for future ultra-deepwater field developments and long distance tiebacks.
Data Science Projects: A Roadmap to SuccessIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/19/2021 at 12:00 PM (EST)
Data science projects exhibit many challenges that drive most of these projects into failure. Data scientists should equip themselves with different techniques: coding, business skills, data handling skills in order to deliver a successful project. As it is reported, data scientists spend 80% of their time on cleaning and preparing data. Thus, a high focus should be devoted to this step in order to be done the right way.
Advances in Diagnostic Fracture Injection Testing for Exploration and Development Applications in Unconventional ReservoirsIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/23/2021 at 9:30 AM (EST)
In this webinar, the conventional and DFIT-FBA methods are compared and advantages/disadvantages discussed. The speed of DFIT-FBA compared to the conventional DFIT opens up new avenues for application of DFITs. Use of the DFIT-FBA for selecting targets for horizontal wells in an exploration program is demonstrated, as is the first-time application of DFIT-FBA (and DFITs in general) for characterizing along-well reservoir quality variability in a horizontal well. The webinar should be of interest to engineers involved in hydraulic-fracture stimulation design and reservoir characterization.
Upstream Oil Allocation Measurement using Coriolis Technology in Permian BasinIncludes Credits
We will review the allocation measurement in general and fundamentals of Coriolis measurement principles, as well as understanding key attributes of different Coriolis meters in the market and why some work and some do not in upstream environment. In depth discussion with field examples of using Coriolis diagnostics variables to troubleshoot separator efficiency and issues will also be presented.
Life Cycle Well Integrity of CO2 Storage Wells: Engineering Imperatives for SuccessIncludes Credits
Geologic storage of CO2 has gained significance, largely due to it being a green-house gas (GHG) and concerns related to impacts on climate from GHG emissions. The literature and experience from industrial analogs indicate that wellbores (both active/inactive or abandoned) may represent the most likely route for escape of the injected CO2 from the storage reservoirs. Therefore, sound injection well design and life cycle well integrity of all wells is of critical importance in such projects, particularly from a storage perspective of 1000 years or more.
Process Safety of Hydrate Blockage DepressurizationIncludes Credits
The results presented in this webinar demonstrates the use of artificial intelligence techniques to develop rate of penetration models for multiple well profiles from actual field data. This includes model development, training and testing, and validating. It also lists some key challenges during AI modeling such as data quality, data analytics and leaving the model as a blackbox.
Managing your Energy in the New NormalIncludes Credits
We are already approaching the final quarter of the “year of the lockdown”. While some developments are a cause of optimism and life is at least partly resuming, it is clear that we will remain in a “new normal”. One of the most marked trends is the expansion in working from home and replacing face to face with online meetings. To help with this, the experts from McKinsey & Company are inviting us to a one hour interactive webinar that will help us recognize our energetic and emotional states, address them effectively, and develop habits to increase happiness and resilience for ourselves and our teams.
Financial Management of R&D: Best in Class MetricsIncludes Credits
In this presentation, we share a review of available methods that can be used to decide on future R&D projects, evaluate existing projects and quantify the impact of completed projects through the implementation of their technological outcomes and/or commercialization.
Formation Stabilization for Unconventional Shales – It’s More Than Conventional Clay ControlIncludes Credits
The emphasis in this webinar is to highlight the pronounced differences in formation damage mechanisms between unconventional versus conventional reservoirs and their implications to the immediate, intermediate and long term production. Addressing specific identified damage mechanisms can be achieved with fluids and chemical additive selection based on the specific reservoir mineralogy and the fracture surface. Discussions will be made on various region-specific damage mechanism and treatments for understanding the fluid-induced sensitivities in specific formations within North America and warning signs that damage is occurring in your fracture.
