Reservoir Simulation
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies have rapidly progressed and have significantly affected traditional reservoir engineering, bringing innovative methodologies to reservoir simulations. However, it is essential to understand that these AI and ML technologies are only as effective and trustworthy as the data they are trained on.
Wellbore Tubulars
  • Corrosion is a pervasive issue that affects oil and gas production. It poses a significant threat to the safety and integrity of oil and gas equipment, and it can lead to costly repairs and downtime. Mitigating corrosion is a crucial part of maintaining the productivity and safety of oil and gas operations.
Unconventional and Tight Reservoirs
  • Because the basics of CCS and CCUS are mostly familiar to a large part of the readership, I am choosing to bring to your attention the summary of those articles that are devoted to approaches other than or beyond CCS, even if they have to climb further on the development ladder. These include bio-based approaches, geothermal, and use of hydrogen as a substitute fuel.
