SPE Live Podcast: Separation; Design vs Reality

7/18/2024
Designing production separators and actually achieving their desired performance levels in reality can be very challenging. In addition to the vessel size, internals suitable for the operating and flowing conditions, piping configuration, instrumentation, operating practices, and production chemicals all play a role in separator performance. This SPE Live will address some of these parameters assumed in the design, how reality can differ, and try to answer any related questions. Moderated by Henri Witteveen, Lead Process Engineer at Kranji Solutions. Speakers: o Logan Grim, Senior Oil Process Engineer at Saudi Aramco o Graeme Smith, Process Engineer at Murphy Oil

SPE Live Podcast: Pre-ATCE series: Fueling Innovation. Navigating the Oil & Gas Startup Journey

5/16/2024
Coming up with an idea and developing an initial product are only the first challenges a startup faces; getting that product into the market and getting feedback from early customers are important next steps. This SPE Live explores the different approaches to getting products in front of oil and gas customers. It will also look at how to structure those initial engagements, how to translate initial diligence discussions into trials/evaluations, and where one can get feedback on the product and progress to the next stages in the sales cycle. Large, independent, and national oil companies can be intimidating first customers, but many have programs or organizations designed to specifically engage with startups and small companies. Speakers: Bryant Mueller, SVP Sales – Western Hemisphere at Datagration. Ervell Boyd, Energy Ventures Analyst at Devon Energy Josh Evans – CEO at HiVolt Energy Moderated by Nayeem Chowdhury

SPE Live Podcast: Hydrogen as Part of the Energy Mix – Commercial and Technical Perspectives

4/4/2024
A hydrogen economy envisions using hydrogen as a clean, low-carbon, and versatile energy carrier and fuel. It offers benefits in terms of energy security, public health, and economic development. Initially, Blue Hydrogen manufactured from natural gas in combination with CCS could help diversify our market options while helping to reduce greenhouse emissions. It has the potential to generate new job opportunities for many of us in the O&G Industry. The global market for hydrogen and fuel cells is expected to grow from $5.5 billion in 2018 to $42.5 billion by 2026. However, Hydrogen is certainly not a silver bullet. A rapid expansion in hydrogen usage also requires that we collectively address several challenges and barriers especially in the areas of storage and transportation. Hydrogen and Ammonia should be seen as complementary energy delivery options that will rapidly expand alongside LNG, renewable, modular nuclear reactors, geothermal and small-scale hydro-projects. This SPE live will introduce the SPE Hydrogen Technical Section and discuss H2 as part of the energy mix, addressing the investment landscape and technical challenges and opportunities. Moderated by Zachary Evans, Sales Director Underground Storage, DarkVision. Speakers: Thomas Major, Managing Partner at MB Energy Partners Pedram Fanailoo, Director for the Low Carbon Segment for North America at DNV Additional resources via OnePetro Publications: Pore-Scale Investigation of Caprock Integrity in Underground Hydrogen Storage Predictive Power of Theoretical Adsorption Models for Hydrogen/Coal System: Implications for Hydrogen Geostorage Multiscale Model for Hydrogen Transport and Storage in Shale Reservoirs In-Situ Hydrogen Production from Natural Gas Wells with Subsurface Carbon Retention (Open Access)

SPE Live Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Systems and Drilling

3/21/2024
During the last few years, there has been an increasing focus on automation solutions for drilling, with many of these solutions already in the market. Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are usually part of these solutions. During this SPE Live, we focus on AI systems that are targeting higher levels of automation, some reaching all the way to autonomy. One requirement for such systems to be taken into use is to be trustworthy. But what does this mean and how to achieve it? At the same time, drilling involves multiple providers, which reflects on the data and information flow, hence adding a new level of complexity for any automation solution. In drilling automation, usually several automation solutions from different providers need to seamlessly work together to ensure safe drilling operations. This raises several challenges when it comes to the stability of such a multi-agent system. The Verification and Validation subcommittee of the SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section is focusing on how to address the verification and validation of the interplay in a multi-agent architecture with multiple providers and we discuss some of the current activities in this subcommittee. Speaker: Rodica Mihai, Senior Researcher in the energy modelling and automation group, at Norwegian Research Centre Moderated by Deep Joshi, Data Scientist at Quantum Capital Group.
