Constructive Conversations – Spotlight on Inclusive Engagement: Dare to Care!
“Constructive Conversations”, is a series of collaborative discussion events hosted by SPE Aberdeen & the Energy Institute (AHI). Our first discussion centres around “Inclusive Engagement”, and we invite you to join us for an interactive, non-judgmental discussion. We hope to discuss topics such as bias within the workplace, assumptions, stereotypes, psychological safety, the need for inclusion and how feeling excluded might affect mental health, performance and ultimately safety – the agenda for the full series is yet to be defined and we can’t wait to get your input.
SPE Virtual International Oilfield Corrosion Conference and Exhibition
The SPE International Oilfield Corrosion Conference and Exhibition 2021 brings together leading academics, scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered within the oilfield corrosion community. This conference will address both current and new challenges that come hand in hand with the wide spectrum of requirements for effective corrosion management throughout an asset’s lifecycle.
DEVEX 2021 – Virtual Programme Now Available!
DEVEX is the only technical conference of its size which is focused on the full E&P project cycle: from exploration, appraisal, development and production (early, mid and late life) through to decommissioning. The conference provides excellent opportunities for petroleum and reservoir engineers, geoscientists and geophysicists and geologists to come together and share knowledge. Transitioning to a low carbon industry will be a key theme where we will look at the opportunities, skills required and how we can work together to maximise economic recovery and build back better!
Energising The Energy Transition. Paul de Leeuw, RGU
2021 will probably be defined by the global response to COVID-19 and the climate emergency. The global vaccination programme, the upcoming United Nations COP26 conference and the prospect to build a better and greener society will provide the opportunity to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges. Against this backdrop, Professor Paul de Leeuw from Robert Gordon University will talk about how we can build on this positive momentum to manage the energy transition and to ensure the sustainability of our planet.
Seismic 2021 – Virtual Programme Available!
The role of seismic in the energy mix is difficult to overstate. Seismic 2021 will cover the entire geophysical spectrum, from exploration through appraisal, development and production and through to abandonment and repurposing for CCS – the full lifecycle potential of the asset. We will also focus on how seismic supports both the UK’s MER strategy and its Net Zero ambitions, as well how seismic can sustainably support the increasing development of renewables into the energy mix.
Decom Week 2021
Decom Week 2021 will focus on all aspects of energy decommissioning – oil & gas, renewables, circular economy, marine, salvage, and nuclear – and provide tangible insight into the sector, covering tech talks, equipment demonstrations, topical discussions, and location tours. Decom Week will also host the largest ever update on decommissioning projects.
SPE Aberdeen Well Decommissioning Symposium – Virtual Programme Available!
Well Abandonment 2021 is in its 10th year and will bring together those specialising in the areas of production optimisation, well integrity and those focused on abandonment operations from major operators, service companies and regulators.
Decarbonising Decom – The Next Generation’s Perspective
Discussing the decarbonisation of decommissioning, this SPE Aberdeen and Decom North Sea collaboration event brings academics and industry insiders together. The agenda includes insightful presentations from notable speakers and SPE Aberdeen bursary awardees, followed by a panel discussion, giving an overview of current thought and the next generation’s perspective.
Oil and Gas Expertise for Unconventional Geothermal Opportunities. Gioia Falcone, University of Glasgow
Geothermal energy is a constant and independent form of renewable energy and plays a key role towards the decarbonisation of the energy sector. While most of the conventional hydrothermal resources have already been discovered and exploited across continents, the greatest potential for future geothermal energy production and thermal energy storage lies in unconventional settings. This talk will review the principles and uses of geothermal energy in today’s energy mix and discuss unconventional geothermal settings and engineering solutions, highlighting how hydrocarbon expertise can complement geothermal exploitation and identifying areas where future research efforts should be addressed to enhance technology transfer.
SPE / IADC Virtual International Drilling Conference and Exhibition
The SPE/IADC Virtual International Drilling Conference and Exhibition is a unique experience where leaders and innovators can discover, network and advance the scientific understanding of drilling in oil and gas exploration and production. This virtual event is dedicated to the drilling community and brings unrivalled technical content highlighting the latest news, trends, innovations and technical solutions affecting the sector.
Hot and Cold – Assuring fit for purpose joints – Welded and Non-Welded Connections. Virtual Events
The aim of this conference is to share knowledge and experiences of different types of hot and cold connections including what to look out for to equip engineers working at all levels to be able to ensure joints are fit for purpose. We will address the pitfalls and provide tips and important things to watch out for upfront during installation and throughout the life of the joint.
Energy Transition In Action – The Acorn Project. Ian Phillips, Pale Blue Dot Energy
During this webinar, Ian will provide an overview of two related projects – Acorn CCS and Acorn Hydrogen – which together are likely to be the UK’s first CCS and “blue” hydrogen projects. He will review the potential build-out possibilities that would make Acorn a major contributor to net zero targets in Scotland, the UK and Europe. Finally he will discuss some of the technical, regulatory and commercial challenges that this “first of a kind” project faces.
EuALF – European Artificial Lift Forum – Virtual Events
EuALF is a well-established forum organised by SPE Aberdeen for artificial lift professionals specifically to promote technology, innovation and collaboration throughout the Artificial Lift Life Cycle. Virtual programme is now live and bookings open.
The Road Ahead For SPE & How You Can Play Your Part – 2021 SPE President Tom Blasingame
