Unplugged 360 Presents: The Gig Economy: Why Oil & Gas is a Natural Fit. Tim Clarke, Hitch Advisor Ltd.

The gig/on-demand economy has been heralded by the arrival of technology companies who have disrupted traditional marketplaces. What does this mean for the oil industry, a largely white-collar sector? Currently focused on the lower end of employment, the big disruptive effect of the Gig Economy is likely to be around roles that are specialist and rarefied in nature, delivered by more experienced and expensive people. Access to known talent at short notice on a “pay as you go” basis at a reasonable price should be a no-brainer, but there are risks and pitfalls for employers and contractors alike.

YP Simplified Series. The Future of the Oil and Gas Industry by Ian Phillips, OGIC

“The Future of the Oil and Gas Industry” presents two very contradictory views of the future of the oil and gas industry around the world. The first half will present a very positive view of the industry – growing energy demand and global population, continually increasing conventional reserves, and a wide range of potential new sources of oil and gas. The second half will review the potential impact of climate change on the industry – in less than 15 years we will likely have exceeded a 2ᵒC rise in the temperature of the planet.

YP Simplified Series. Big Drilling Rig Choices – Old, New and Virtual by Craig Fraser, RigQuip

This presentation will provide a technical overview of current fixed and mobile rig choices with a focus on high performance, larger rigs. A comparison of old and new rigs will be made, and some of the economics behind rig building will be discussed, including how rigs are funded, and how optimum performance and safety can be obtained once contracted. There will also be a virtual walk around one of the world’s most advanced drillship designs where attendees can try out the latest VR technology.

YP Simplified Series. Subsea Asset Integrity by Matthew Kennedy, 1CSI

This presentation will look at a number of inspection technologies underpinning the integrity assessment of subsea assets in the O&G and renewable (wind energy) sectors: ROV deployed ultrasonic inspection of subsea pipelines rigid & flexibles; Diver and ROV deployed underwater radiography of subsea pipelines; Subsea inspection of offshore wind turbine monopile structures. These topics will be presented and discussed with an insight into how these techniques fit into the owner/operator integrity cycle.

Wireless Monitoring Reduces Reservoir Uncertainties in Suspended and Abandoned Subsea Wells. Donald Horsfall of EXPRO

The CaTS™ wireless gauge technology has been used for real‐time reservoir data monitoring in subsea wells since 2006 and is part of an 18 year continuous technology development for wireless communication in oil & gas wells. The presentation will describe how the technology was successfully deployed as part of a drill stem test to monitor the reservoir to reduce uncertainties

Integrated Historical WorkFlows: Maximising the value of a mature asset – SPE Distinguished Lecturer Anne Valentine of SCHLUMBERGER

Industry studies show that mature fields currently account for over 70% of the world’s oil and gas production. Increasing production rates and ultimate recovery in these fields in order to maintain profitable operations, without increasing costs, is a common challenge.
This presentation addresses techniques to extract maximum value from historical production data using quick workflows based on common sense. Extensive in-depth reservoir studies are obviously very valuable, but not all situations require these, particularly in the case of brown fields where the cost of the study may outweigh the benefits of the resulting recommendations.

POSTPONED UNTIL 14th MARCH DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS -West of Shetland: Whose bright idea was it to drill there? Claudia Piemonte and Ksenia Budkina of TOTAL

This presentation will share all highlights, lowlights and lessons learnt from development drilling operations on Laggan-Tormore. The intention is to share Total’s knowledge and expertise to enhance the industry’s appetite for sanctioning future projects West of Shetland, an area well known for its harsh environment.
Total will explain how they have mitigated risks with appropriate planning, adapting equipment, applying reliable technology and the right expertise and will describe how, with these elements in place, drilling operations can be delivered on time and below budget.
