Big Data Analytics: What Can It Do For Petroleum Engineers And Geoscientists? SPE Distinguished Lecturer Srikanta Mishra – Battelle Memorial Institute
Wednesday February 27, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Big data analytics has become quite the buzzword in recent years, and its growing application in E&P operations promises to be an exciting new development. It involves: (1) acquiring and managing data in large volumes, of different varieties, and at high velocities, and (2) using statistical techniques to “mine” the data and discover hidden patterns of association and relationships in large, complex, multivariate datasets. However, the subject remains a mystery to most petroleum engineers and geoscientists because of the statistics-heavy jargon and the use of complex algorithms.
This talk will provide a “gentle” introduction to big data analytics by focusing on: (a) easy-to-understand descriptions of the commonly-used concepts and techniques, (b) broad categories of E&P problems that can be solved with big data analytics, and (c) case studies demonstrating the value-added proposition for big data.
YP Simplified Series. The Need for Innovation in Chemical Monitoring Programmes Used in Oil & Gas. Harry Grover, LUX Assure
Wednesday March 6, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Chemical treatment of field fluids in oil and gas installations are vital to efficient and safe operation of the industry. Using the correct production chemicals can prevent corrosion, blockages, and microbial contamination, among other production upsets. Selecting the appropriate dose of production chemicals used to avoid these problems is critical, as incorrectly dosed chemicals can do more harm than good. LUX Assure has three products which can help to inform the correct dose of different types of production chemical. This presentation will look at how innovation in these products can lead to cleaner, safer, and more efficient oil and gas production.

YP Unplugged 360: What does Equality and Diversity in Engineering Mean? Talat Yaqoob, Equate Scotland
Tuesday March 19, 2019 at 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm
There is so much discussion around equality and diversity in the engineering sector – but what does it actually mean? How do we move from rhetoric into real action? In this talk we will cover why equality and diversity matters, how we can engage more women into engineering, why we must think through an intersectional lens, and how we can all play a part. With a social, political and economic push in this area, it is time to get on board and change the face of engineering.

Transforming Controls Safety and Security – How Safe is your Asset?
Wednesday October 30, 2019 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Digital transformation, functional safety and cyber security are often discussed in isolation in the process control industry. However, data, analytics and remote access, are now used to improve safety, reduce cost and increase efficiency of assets, this merges these areas and they should collectively be discussed as segments of the digital solution. This conference jointly organised by InstMC and SPE Aberdeen will provide a forum for discussing the issues with subject matter experts, leaving you with ideas to consider and workable solutions.
