In a world where year after year more and more oil and gas are consumed, a bullish outlook on the market for “oil and gas workers” should not be matter of debate. However, that does not seem to be the case for petroleum engineers.
The Covid-19 pandemic nearly stopped the PetroBowl event from happening. A software built by SPE members created an opportunity to continue the competition virtually.
To develop improved predictive models of complex real-world problems, one needs to pursue a balanced perspective. Ultimately, the physics we know needs to rely on data to unmask the physics that we do not yet know.
The event saw participation of distinguished speakers and key industry players from the Malaysian oil and gas industry.
Zero Orphan Wells: The Texas Well Protected Energy Foundation Battles To Plug and Abandon Orphaned WellsThe orphaned well situation in Texas presents an opportunity for the oil and gas industry to prove it can participate in the next chapter of the diversifying domestic energy portfolio.
This paper describes diversity and inclusion in its broadest sense and its benefits and challenges within the context of the oil and gas industry, in particular with regard to petroleum engineering and subsurface teams.
I see it like this: Two students took action to start pushing our industry to more openly share basic information about what we do and how we do it, so that we as an industry can benefit by learning from each other.
Smaller and independent upstream companies often have limited resources for data management. Nonetheless, their data are valuable and must be managed for that value to be realized. Geologists may just be in the perfect position to do the job, if they can get the training.
A 2016-2017 SPE Distinguished Lecturer, and CEO and technical director of XCIDrill Technology, Graham Mensa-Wilmot spoke to African young professionals on how to thrive in petroleum engineering careers.
The World Economic Forum’s Human Capital initiative has been implemented at Satbayev University in Kazakhstan for the past 2 years. This paper assesses the effectiveness of project components, such as industry guest lectures, summer internships, and program improvement, and provides lessons learned for human resources development.
Qatargas and Qatar University’s College of Engineering announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in the field of research, consultancy, and knowledge transfer.
The grant provides students with access to leading E&P software and mentoring opportunities to engage and prepare them for future careers.
Fourteen technologies from 13 companies around the world were selected, including five companies receiving small business recognition.
Traditional solutions do not solve the problem of flaring. The large amount of power produced at the well pads using power generators or turbines may be utilized by heavy duty equipment or some other type of a large electric consumer—Bitcoin.
The market may be different from what we have previously experienced, but the path to a successful digital transformation is durable and the core principles of success have not changed.
Start-and-stop data management initiatives and a mishmash of partial solutions are no longer viable for managing the digital oil field. Data management should be transformed from a cost center to a cash-flow-generating function.
I’m proud to share the nice celebration of a big milestone recently achieved: 100,000 b/d produced in Iara license by the floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel P-68. Congratulations to Total E&P Do Brasil and all involved. It is only the beginning of this incredible adventure.
Now more than ever, one of the biggest values of SPE membership is the professional networking opportunity. From personal experience, the sense of community I've found by being involved with SPE and the connections I've made along the way have been of the greatest benefit.
This photo was taken in December 2018 during my PhD defense at the University of Calgary. The people in the photo from the left are Gordon Moore, Larry Lines, Farouq Ali, Thomas Harding, Raj Mehta, and Roberto Aguilera. Each of them are experts in their field. This photo means a lot to me. I truly believed in "Standing on the shoulders of giants." Interestingly, Hardi…
