Twenty Years, One Fracture and the Future of a North Sea Asset. Alistair Roy, BP

Andrew is a BP strategic hub in CNS producing a Paleocene oil reservoir for twenty-two years through a small platform with three additional subsea tiebacks. The Lower Cretaceous condensate reservoir however lay dormant since an aborted hydraulic fracture in 1998. New technologies including mono-mesh proppant and PLA fibres were deployed for treatment optimisation and maximising productivity. The successful fracturing execution and production results have brought renewed efforts to extend the life of this mature offshore asset by pursuing similar opportunities, platform and subsea, instead of prematurely abandoning the platform.

DEVEX 2019

Legacy & Sustainability: 50+ Years Of UKCS History & Lessons For The Future. DEVEX is now in its 16th year and is the only technical conference of its size which is focused on the full cycle of reservoir discovery, evaluation, development and recovery in the UK and provides excellent opportunities for engineers and geoscientists to come together and share knowledge.
DEVEX 2019 will explore the great fields of the past and how we are optimally managing them, along with the re-development of smaller pools, utilising new technologies and ways of working to make the most out of these assets. DEVEX will investigate the lessons learned over the last 50 years, whilst being mindful of the challenges and changes ahead, to ensure we maximise economic recovery and create a sustainable future for the UKCS.

YP Simplified Series. The Energy Transition and the Oil & Gas Sector. Sam Gomersall, Pale Blue Dot Energy

The hydrocarbon reserves already discovered cannot be produced if we are to meet our Paris Climate Change obligations. This presents a significant challenge for the O&G sector. Young professionals today will be working in a very different world when they retire in 20-30 years time. The energy transition is a massive challenge or a massive opportunity depending on your approach. Sam will discuss energy transition activity in carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen and electrification which present an opportunity for the O&G supply chain and the professionals within.

YP Unplugged 360: What does Equality and Diversity in Engineering Mean? Talat Yaqoob, Equate Scotland

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.

YP Simplified Series. The Need for Innovation in Chemical Monitoring Programmes Used in Oil & Gas. Harry Grover, LUX Assure

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.

SOLD OUT – Contact Diane to be on the waiting list. Big Data Analytics: What Can It Do For Petroleum Engineers And Geoscientists? SPE Distinguished Lecturer Srikanta Mishra – Battelle Memorial Institute

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. Inspection Life: How to Effectively Define it for Down Hole Drilling Components. Ray Procter, Ray Procter Group 

There are discussions every day in meeting rooms around the world that involve the words “fatigue life”. How long is it going to last?… when do we need to change it out?…how can we predict the effect of fatigue on the life of that component?…what is its design life? This presentation will discuss how engineers can control the fatigue by setting inspection intervals.

Golden Eagle, 4 years on: Managing Reservoir Uncertainty with Intelligent Wells. Presented by Craig Durham & Sultan Djabbarov, CNOOC International

The Golden Eagle Field in UKCS blocks 20/1 & 14/26a was discovered in 2006 and development was sanctioned in 2010. Development drilling finished in October 2016 with the delivery of 19 wells: 14 production and 5 water injection, including 4 subsea wells. All the wells were completed with permanent fibre optic downhole monitoring and most are designated “Intelligent” with remotely controlled downhole flow control sleeves. The presentation will explain the decision to complete the field with Intelligent Well Technology and the operational field experience to date.
