YP Unplugged 360 Series Webinar. Our Role in the Energy Transition. D. Nathan Meehan, CMG Petroleum Consulting Ltd
The need to decarbonize the oil and gas industry to remain competitive is clear; however, the path forward is not. In the face of investor, government and societal pressures operators and service companies have pursued a variety of paths towards the use of renewables, increased efficiencies and Carbon Capture Use and Storage. Dr. Meehan shares an approach to quantify carbon intensity (CI) of oil and gas activity and presents results showing a wide disparity in CI around the world.
Technical Webinar. A New Well Monitoring Method – Managing Well Integrity in a Cost-driven Net Zero Emissions Energy Industry. Neil Gordon, Sentinel Subsea
Cost-efficient environmental stewardship is the foundation of a thriving 21st century energy industry, not least as we all rise to the current global challenges. At the centre of this is the integrity of thousands of subsea wells across the globe. Recognising the challenges faced by the industry in cost-driven and net zero emissions energy future, Sentinel Subsea has developed a range of in-situ well monitoring technologies which adopt a unique method for achieving these vital well integrity management activities. Their Hydrocarbon Detection System and Tracer Detection System provides the industry’s only passive well monitoring technology. With backing from the OGTC and a North Sea operator their equipment has been tested in both the onshore and offshore environment. Following system trials in Buckie Harbour their system was shipped offshore and deployed off a platform for a 2-week period in August 2019.
Webinar – Western Isles Field Development – A Subsurface Perspective. Nick Beaumont-Smith & Truong Nguyen – Dana Petroleum
The Western Isles field was first encountered by the 210/24a-8 &210/24a-10z exploration wells, however results were unclear with geological complexity hampering interpretation. The full potential of the field was not recognised until 2008/9 when the area was explored by Dana Petroleum. A series of four wells were drilled that helped identify four independent fault blocks hosting oil in both the Upper and Lower Brent formations. The presentation will chart the evolution of the subsurface understanding since sanction to start-up. It will focus on results from development drilling and how this materially changed management of the field. Each new well has led to an upward revision of in-place volumes with material changes in field stratigraphy encountered. Production data has greatly improved the subsurface understanding however there has been the occasional surprise.

YP Simplified Series. Eider & Otter: Turning Challenges into Opportunities. Ewan Wright & Neil Paterson, TAQA
This presentation tells the story of three closely interlinked projects which helped transform the operating model of an offshore platform and extend the life of the Otter field to maximise the economic recovery of the area in line with the Oil and Gas Authority’s MER Strategy 2016.
Partnering for Solutions: Production optimisation for brownfield assets in the UKCS. Nazli Demiroren – EXPRO North Sea Ltd.
Production optimisation efforts in the UKCS has gained momentum with the Oil & Gas Authority’s MER UK strategy encouraging operators and service providers to work collaboratively towards a single goal: Vision 2035. With this in mind, this presentation will showcase some of our leading edge production optimisation solutions and case studies touching on the common pain points in the UKCS ranging from the sand face up to tubing across the topsides. Considering the age of the UKCS and the rise of the brownfields in the sector it is believed to be a very engaging discussion.
YP Simplified Series. Innovative Completion Technologies – Communication is the Key to Success. Bruce Robertson, Weatherford
Many industries, particularly safety critical one’s are reluctant to change, preferring instead conventional “time-proven” solutions and the oil industry is no different. It’s often said that “necessity is the mother of invention”, the sustained lower oil price environment is the necessity that the industry has needed to drive it towards innovative technologies. This talk will review two case-studies where innovative technology has been applied successfully to hydraulically fracture a 7-zone, 1,500m horizontal section and to install a single-trip completion in a challenging deep-water environment shortening install time by half.
YP TechTour – TechnipFMC ROV
The first Tech Tour of 2020 will be hosted by TechnipFMC and takes place on 29th January. The event will entail an exciting presentation of their ROV activities and capabilities and a tour of their workshop facilities. This will include an opportunity to try piloting an ROV on a simulator and a first hand look at some of the tools.
Energy Transition and the Future of the Oil and Gas Industry. Ian Phillips, OGIC
With world population rising and our ability to develop hydrocarbon reserves continuing to be strong this should be the ideal business environment for the Oil and Gas industry to grow and thrive. However some Investors are refusing to invest in oil and gas. The catch is that burning oil and gas emits carbon dioxide causing huge changes to the climate. The global energy supply is evolving rapidly. The presentation will consider decarbonising oil and gas, renewable energy and the potential impact on how we live.
