Special focus: Advances in production
On the North Sea Yggdrasil development, service providers are collaborating to develop three platforms that will operate remotely from an integrated onshore operations center. The project draws on experience gained from the Ivar Aasen venture, marking a significant step forward in the pursuit to increase offshore efficiency and sustainability.
As the upstream industry continues to address the energy trilemma of secure, affordable and sustainable energy, Saipem is setting the bar on innovative solutions, to improve the efficiency of subsea field development.
A unique collaboration is enhancing gas production, reducing emissions, and boosting revenue generation while controlling costs.
As a major contributor to the world's energy needs, the oil and gas industry plays a crucial role in ensuring that this goal is realized. Despite crude oil's increasing importance to the global economy's ever-increasing demand, hydrocarbons are widely acknowledged as a major source of pollutants in terrestrial, atmospheric and ocean ecosystems.
When offshore structures and vessels reach the end of their productive lives, they must be decommissioned and dismantled, recycled or disposed of safely. These complex, highly engineered assets are built to withstand harsh environments and are often contaminated with hydrocarbons and other hazardous materials from years of operation.
Singlet oxygen-generating treatment technology achieves sustainable operations, helps operators meet production goals
A new chemistry solution, first developed for the food and beverage industry, provides an environmentally safe and economical alternative for upstream water treatment without the hazards or cost of traditional oxidizers or conventional biocides.
The main scope of this article describes how the possible and secure production method of large quantities of fresh/potable water from subsea bottom springs can be achieved by separating this meteoric (in origin) ground water from the saline seawater.
This article presents mechanical and sour corrosion test results for X80 seamless pipes and girth welds. Four-point bend tests were carried out on parent pipes and weld joints, using samples taken at the ID surface to assess the material’s sulfide stress cracking resistance. Results highlight the possibility of using X80 heavy-walled seamless pipes for risers in a mild sour environment, using cost-effective welding.
The availability of energy storage solutions and intelligent engine management systems enables companies to increase efficiencies and lower costs and emissions while maintaining power and performance.
A modernized communications infrastructure that can see, think and act, and enable the upstream industry to build the resilience and digital capabilities in needs, is a must. And the components for it are here now.
