Production Monitoring
  • During the past 3 years, over half a million patents were granted for production monitoring. This progress has led to a shift toward integrated work flows, cloud-based platforms, resilient sensors, process simplification, and automation.
High Pressure/High Temperature
  • High-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) resources continue to be a focus of efforts to apply new technologies that maximize productivity while addressing concerns related to capital expenditure, operating expenses, and high drilling costs. These cost-effective technologies will only grow in importance in exploiting HP/HT and ultra-HP/HT fields.
Geothermal Energy
  • One area where the untapped potential of geothermal energy has been realized is in harnessing thermal energy from abandoned or inactive oil and gas wells. Such wells could be exploited for electricity generation or direct use through well repurposing.
