Operators are strategically navigating the changing dynamics of the energy market with continued investment in the floating offshore sector.
Norway’s Petoro and Schlumberger recently collaborated to develop a well placement solution that automates ensemble-based reservoir modeling. Based on AI and automation, the solution helps Petoro to accelerate and improve offshore field development planning and well target selection.
Proven completion technologies combine for an inventive pairing to create an effective, innovative solution.
A next-generation integrity, based on more precise, real-time wellbore fluid monitoring.
Engineering experts are examining existing well integrity operations and pushing boundaries to discover and develop new ways of working. One company is transforming well operations by focusing on inventing innovative and environmentally aware downhole tool solutions.
Power generation from offshore wind turbines is projected to increase 700% over the next 10 years. Developing local supply chains in Europe and the U.S. will increase efficiency, reduce costs and help drive a green recovery, post-Covid-19.
An in-depth analysis takes a step back for a big picture look at the two sides of the energy transition and reveals several interesting synergies.
In the face of rising gasoline prices, U.S. President Joe Biden has instructed his administration to turn to the likes of Saudi Arabia, Iran and Russia to produce more crude while keeping restrictions on American oil and gas in place.
Taking a page from the Neville Chamberlain Handbook for Diplomacy, Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, is lobbying the UK to take actions that will ultimately lead to a disorganized and very costly end to fossil fuel development in the Scottish sector of the North Sea.
Two senior marine construction executives provide an in-depth analysis of an innovative proposal to use electricity from floating wind turbines to power offshore oil and gas operations to reduce GHG.
Brownfield expansions have always been an available option, but new technology and a commitment to reducing total expenditure have changed the way that the industry thinks about, and executes, life extension projects.
“Improving fundamentals” aside, production dips below Covid-riddled 2020
An innovative concrete, floating wind turbine platform is designed to reduce costs for electricity-generating installations in water depths of 45 m or greater
From killing the Keystone XL pipeline to federal land usage, leasing bans, wastewater disposal and tax treatment, the Biden administration is waging a full-scale assault on the U.S. upstream oil and gas industry.
Rigs to Reefs programs provide a viable alternative to traditional decommissioning, and a replicable, scalable solution that can catalyze sustainable ocean resource development.
An advanced, innovative stuffing box, engineered specifically for harsh conditions, helps to reduce pollution while extending well life and expanding operating ranges.
