Rapid Asset Valuation using SpeedWise<sup>®</sup> Portfolio Analysis
October 10, 2018
Sponsored by: QRI
In this webcast, experts in big data present a new systematic process for the evaluation of oil and gas asset portfolios, where the performance and economic value of the entire portfolio are computed very quickly. The automation of this workflow relies on a proprietary data-driven solution that contains key technological components, including patented mathematical algorithms that analyze information for an entire portfolio of fields, such as decline rates, decline trends, recent well performance, field/well/operator ranking and reserves. The final deliverable is a fully interactive user-interface (UI) with key performance indicators (KPIs) that allows the user to review the history, current condition and expected future performance of the portfolio. This technology has been effectively used in the valuation of oil and gas portfolios for M&A, asset evaluations for A&D, and to prioritize future investments by obtaining a high-level, up-to-date understanding of all assets in a portfolio.

Bypass Filtration Systems: Extending Engine Life and Reducing Maintenance Costs
September 12, 2018
Sponsored by: DistributionNOW
Safe and cost-efficient equipment maintenance remains a challenge in our industry. Bypass oil filtration technology is designed to significantly reduce oil maintenance costs and extend equipment life in hard-working engines and hydraulic systems. Using a high-efficiency, multi-stage oil bypass filtration system will safely extend the life of your equipment’s oil, while at the same time increasing the time between overhauls. Case studies show that equipment owners and contractors have seen oil drain intervals extended 3–5 times normal, moving to oil changes based on oil analysis instead of OEM recommendations. This webcast will show how bypass oil filters are part of a complete oil management program, explain the benefits of bypass filtration systems for oil and gas applications, and discuss ROI and payback periods of less than 6 months. Legend Energy Services will talk about their experience using bypass oil filtration systems in the field.
