Natural Gas Processing and Handling
  • LNG
    The integration of new technologies and innovative approaches plays a pivotal role in driving sustainable advancements and value gains. These advancements are crucial for enhancing operational efficiency, reducing environmental impacts, and meeting the increasing global demand for natural gas as a key fuel powering the energy evolution.
  • The oil and gas industry, notably the completion activity, with its distributed sensors, optical fibers, permanent downhole gauges, sealed-wellbore pressure monitoring, and microseismic, has generated a fantastic amount of data, which has increasingly been properly refined and processed, producing more information—and more oil.
Heavy Oil
  • The physical characteristics of heavy oil and the formations in which it is found are often unique to a region or even to a specific asset, so recovery techniques must be tuned, adapted, and sometimes invented for each region. Creative professionals around the world are taking up this challenge and sharing their work with us in a wealth of excellent recent publication…
History Matching and Forecasting
  • This year’s history matching and forecasting selections cover a deep-learning framework to forecast spatial/temporal dynamics of CO2 mineralization in reactive rocks, productivity decline analysis using coupled full-field and near-wellbore poromechanics modeling, and a reservoir graph network model for multiwell forecasting in unconventional reservoirs.
