2016 marks a unique and pivotal year for our industry, especially in the Asia Pacific region, as several mega LNG projects transition to operations and others complete construction. In addition to these operational changes, frontier exploration is underway in several Asia Pacific basins, technology enabled developments (FLNG) are progressing and unconventional opportunities are being unlocked.

Clearly, catching the next wave of resource development will not be achieved by “business as usual” approaches. Success will require more collaboration, more integration, innovative solutions, a competitive cost structure and rigorous application of hard won lessons from recent projects. We must maintain our social license to operate by, continuing to improve our personal and process safety results, maintaining the highest environmental standards and ensure all stakeholders understand the vital economic contribution our industry provides.

Fortunately, our region is blessed with an abundance of natural resources and there is growing demand for our products. Also, we have a reputation for overcoming obstacles and a successful record of delivering affordable, reliable energy to our customers. It is clear that we have the talent, the skills, the experience and the opportunities to overcome today’s unique challenges and continue to contribute to the growth and prosperity of our region.

For the SPE 2016 Executive Plenary Session, we have invited several leaders of our industry to explore these issues with to conference members. Please plan to join us for what promises to be a lively and informative plenary session.

Speaker(s) Edward Grave - ExxonMobil Upstream Research Co.
Verifying Performance and Capability of New Technology for Surface and Subsurface Facilities

As we have seen with the advent of the shale oil revolution in the United States, the development of new technology plays an important role in the oil and gas industry. It is an enabler in reducing capital costs, simplifying production and increasing capacity of new or existing facilities. It can make a marginal project into a profitable development.

Progressing technology, while dealing with significant risk, is a challenge that can be overcome through a technology qualification process. A Technology Qualification Programme (TQP) provides a means to identifying the risks and taking the correct steps to mitigate it; not avoid it.

This lecture summarises the required steps involved in qualifying technology and how to keep track of technology development through the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) ranking system. In addition, some of the pitfalls in executing a TQP programme are identified and discussed with emphasis on both component and system testing. Examples are given to illustrate the danger in taking shortcuts when executing the qualification plan.

Data from a recent subsea separation qualification programme is presented comparing test results between CFDs, model fluid and actual crude testing at operating conditions. Knowing the limitations of the tools and testing system selected is an important step in closing the gaps identified in the TQP programme.

The TRL has evolved at a faster pace and has become more acceptable in the oil and gas industry than the TQP. Nonetheless, continued standardisation of both the TQL and TRL is still necessary in order to reduce overall cost of developing technology and allow faster implementation.

The oil and gas industry provides enormous societal benefits by delivering accessible energy that has improved the living conditions of millions of people around the globe. It would be hard to imagine a world without petroleum, which provides fuel for personal vehicles, mass transportation, low cost power, clean water, fertilisers and artificial materials – to name but a tiny fraction of the benefits.

The provision of petroleum has not been without challenge however and the industry faces a growing environmental and regulation lobby that appears at times to overlook the benefits that the petroleum industry can provide.

To work together with this growing lobby and enhance community perception it is important that the industry maintains its focus on the delivery of petroleum by clean and safe methods. It is also crucial that we undertakes activities to engage in advocacy to promote the energy cycle and benefits that this industry provides to society. In this panel session, these issues will be examined from the point of view of various stakeholders. Some of the topics to be discussed are:

• The high standards and regulations governing the industry’s license to operate.
• The safeguard of natural resources such as water aquifers.
• Landowner concerns and interactions.
• The role of the media.
• The enhancement of public education.
• How boom and bust cycles can be managed to provide people with clarity and certainty of livelihood, infrastructure and energy supply.
• How this industry can be better attuned to the needs of our broader community.

Successful asset integrity management results in no harm being done to people, assets or the environment, while facilitating the accomplishment of business objectives. Asset integrity management encompasses both process safety and structural integrity – process safety requires keeping production securely contained within the well, pipes, and vessels, and structural integrity ensures that the structures that are designed to support equipment remain integral over the life of the asset.

Effective management of well, facility, and pipeline integrity over an asset’s life is an ongoing, expensive and technically complex activity that seeks to manage risks to as low as reasonably practicable. Risks can never be fully eliminated but are managed to an acceptable level.

When the cost and risk of maintaining and remediating the integrity of an asset is greater than the reward to be gained by the remaining production, life-end is usually imminent. Life-end of an asset usually results in the loss of recoverable hydrocarbons and expensive decommissioning and rehabilitation. To prevent these impacts, it is sometimes preferable to ensure that assets continue to economically produce for as long as possible by undertaking good asset integrity management practices and implementing technologies that can extend the life of assets.

In this session, industry leaders will discuss asset integrity management and life extension including the disciplines and methodologies involved and how decisions are made to strike the appropriate balance of expenditure versus risk to maximise the value of an asset.

SE07  Special Keynote Session: Delivering World Class Results in Exploration and Reservoir Development in NW Australia, 2011-2016 Botanical 3
Speaker(s) Gerry Flaherty - Chevron Australia
Over the past 6 years, more than USD 80 billion have been invested in two legacy LNG projects, Gorgon and Wheatstone. These huge projects are forecasted to deliver USD 20 billion per year to Australia’s GDP, while providing energy security for decades to come. Successful exploration, appraisal and development drilling results have established sufficient resource to underpin more than 30 years of gas supply.

From a subsurface perspective, the following have been achieved:
• 25+ discoveries, at a 90% success rate
• Competitive upstream development costs
• Completion of one of the world’s largest CO2 sequestration projects
• Advancements in seismic acquisition and processing capability; including the first MAZ (multi azimuth) and OBN (ocean bottom node) surveys in Australia

Recent exploration success and updated regional studies suggest significant resource “yet to find” in the Carnarvon basin. As Asia Pacific gas demand grows into the next decade, applying lessons learned from our projects can drive additional exploration success, create more efficient development plans, and increase ultimate recovery. With access to world class resources, innovative technology and the proven ability to deliver complex projects, our region is positioned to deliver affordable energy well into the future.

In the very near future, the Australian industry alone will see six large gas fields transition from development to production. These mega projects will have enduring effects both on Australian economy and global energy markets.

There is an immense need for uninterrupted and affordable supply of energy with the increasing demand of fuel and accelerated growth of global energy consumption. The global industry scrutinises the readiness of the Asia Pacific region as both operators and service providers are being challenged to ensure these mega projects meet their schedules.

In this session, industry leaders will discuss what organisations need to do to prepare themselves to transition fields from development into the production and operations phase. This session will highlight some of the key issues that are crucial to the success of these transitions such as:
• Capital budgeting and cost optimisation
• Technical challenges – technology and expertise
• Government and regulatory compliances
• Environment and geo-politics
• Organisational capability - resource allocation and structure

SE09  Panel 5: Importance of an Efficient, Consistent and Stable Regulatory Environment Botanical 3
Moderator(s) Brendan Champness - ExxonMobil, Dominic Pepicelli - Department of State Development, South Australian Government
Speaker(s) Barry Alan Goldstein - Department of State Development, South Australian Government, Ken Fitzpatrick - National Energy Resources Australia, Tom Baddeley - Santos Ltd., Darren Greer - Senex Energy, Fiona Hick - Woodside Energy
Investing in oil and gas projects is a challenging and risky activity, due to the size of the initial capital investment, technical and market risks, and long payback periods.

The regulatory environment is a factor that is taken into account by an increase or decrease on return on project investment – higher regulatory risk usually demands an increase in financial return up to a point where no investment will be made because of a lack in regulatory stability.

A regulatory environment where expectations are simple to understand, clear and consistent will assist in the ability of an oil and gas project to achieve sanction. However, the ability to achieve sanction will also be enhanced if there is confidence that the regulatory environment will experience minimal change over the life of the investment through exploration, development, production and ultimately decommissioning.

Stable regulation is important in supporting a sustainable industry by setting consistent and stable standards for all stakeholders to manage their businessess effectively.

In this panel session, leaders within the upstream oil and gas industry, their service providers and government regulatory agencies, will provide insight and stimulate discussion on what are important characteristics of good regulation.
