World Oil webcasts and webinars are in-depth presentations on oil and gas applications, trends and technology. Moderated by a World Oil editor and including technical experts, these events are focused on providing qualified engineers and professionals in the upstream oil and gas industry with the latest information pertaining to offshore and onshore exploring, drilling, completions and production.
Improving Safety by Digitizing Field Workflows
August 11, 2022
Sponsored by: Honeywell
Deskless workers play a significant role in supporting and maintaining distributed upstream operations. Many field operators record inspection rounds and maintenance activities using pen and paper, and then manually update that data to a computer when they return to the office. This tedious, manual approach is error prone, and aggregation of data is a challenge, slowing the ability to detect technical issues early to prevent equipment downtime and unsafe situations. It makes compliance with growing regulations more difficult, and it impacts employee productivity and safety in the field. Utilization of digital tools transforms the deskless worker by providing access to real-time information where it’s needed to perform the prescribed tasks competently, efficiently, and safely. Standardized digital processes and access to remote experts help to increase process efficiency and minimize errors, and enable smart, data-driven decisions to enhance worker performance and safety. A case study will be presented to demonstrate digitized workflows in an upstream application. Learn how: -Automating best practices can ensure consistency and compliance -Mobile applications and on-demand information help improve efficiency and safety -Implementation options allow for choice between SaaS, on-premises, and hybrid deployment -Digitized workflows can ensure that safety is the number one priority
Why It’s Time to Rethink Offshore Medium-Pressure Component Selection
August 02, 2022
Sponsored by: Swagelok
Operating medium-pressure fluid systems in offshore applications comes with a range of challenges, from minimizing corrosion in alloy-based systems to reducing component maintenance and replacement when manpower and inventory is limited. Leaks that occur in connection points in chemical injection units, HPUs, TuTus, and other support equipment can lead to unaffordable downtime, so it is important to know how to find the right fittings technology for these demanding applications. We can help you there. In this webinar, we will cover: -Common problems experienced in offshore medium-pressure fluid systems -The difference between fittings technologies used in these applications -What affects total lifecycle cost of fittings, and why it matters -Strategies for countering vibration, corrosion, and other threats to fittings -What else to consider when selecting medium-pressure fittings Join us to find out what we have learned through decades of working with the oil and gas market, and how you can apply those insights to dealing with the extraordinary demands on your business.
The Drive to Net Zero: The Key Role of Digital Technology in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
July 26, 2022
Sponsored by: AspenTech
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will be an essential pathway as industries move to net zero. The ability to handle CO2 at both emission sources and directly from air, together with long-term storage in the subsurface, make CCS a crucial part of the energy transition. Join AspenTech experts to learn how innovations in digital technology support end-to-end CCS, with faster, widespread scale-up and improvements in economics and efficiency. Learn how you and your teams can: - Use rigorous modeling and economic analysis for rapid design and scale-up of carbon capture processes - Evaluate all current and new technology areas (such as liquid and physical solvent absorption, zeolites, membranes and other approaches) to find the most viable solution for your use cases - Leverage subsurface models to select depleted reservoirs and aquifers for CO2 storage that meet technical and economic criteria - Support optimized control and ongoing operator training to reduce risks and ensure proper CO2 storage You’ll see how chemical simulation models evaluate CCS approaches, such as converting CO2 to carbonates. Now is the time to adopt an end-to-end carbon capture and storage solution tailored to your needs. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering for the event.
