Engineered Tubular Solutions: Shale Plays
February 28, 2018
Sponsored by: Vallourec
The drop in oil prices has forced operators to re-evaluate their casing designs to improve payback. With this re-evaluation, Vallourec has taken the opportunity to work with operators to question each aspect of their well designs in order to find ways to achieve higher strength, pressure and production performance with optimized casing designs outside the standard API dimensions. Creating customized diameters, wall thicknesses, along with optimized grades and premium connections has led to significant savings for rig time and steel costs in addition to providing increased performance and production.
Oil & Gas Forecast 2018
February 22, 2018
Sponsored by: Galtway Marketing, PESA
Now in its 92nd year, the World Oil Forecast/Review is the upstream oil and gas industry's most trusted source of projections and data relating to global E&P activity. Utilizing data collected from proprietary surveys of governments and operators in the U.S. and worldwide, this definitive industry report includes projections for spending and activity, worldwide drilling and productions, and an analysis of political factors impacting the U.S. and international oil and gas industry.
Mitigating Uncertainty in Pipeline Inspection with the World's Only Subsea CT Scanner: Discovery <sup>TM</sup>
February 13, 2018
Sponsored by: Tracerco
As subsea assets age, corrosion issues start to arise and the integrity of those assets are compromised. With the combination of non-intrusive DiscoveryTM fast scans and extended scans, operators can quickly identify and accurately determine wall loss integrity flaws of both piggable and unpiggable subsea pipelines, all in real time and while online. This webcast, with case studies, will illustrate how operators can: obtain statistical confidence that their pipeline/pipeline system is within the acceptable tolerance specification, validate ILI inspection/eliminate operational risks associated with ILI usage, eliminate the costs associated with coating removal and ensure that there is no loss to production/deferment of revenue during inspection campaigns.
Giving Machines a Mind
February 07, 2018
Sponsored by: Baker Hughes, a GE company
In the Oil and Gas industry, predicting how assets and processes will behave is key to proactive maintenance and future productivity, and in driving new value. To succeed, one must understand all aspects of an Oil and Gas network and bring together the physical and virtual assets in a continuous loop of knowledge and improvement. IoT promises to connect things, people and systems to deliver your organization value but it is only possible through the seamless unification of all these pieces, and it’s no easy task to break down the siloes. Hear from ARC Advisory Group’s Analyst, Craig Resnick, as he shares his insights on: • Why asset knowledge matters in IoT • Steps Oil and Gas companies can take to bring together IT/OT • What’s at risk if you don’t do this right
