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.

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.
