The StatesFirst Induced Seismicity Working Group (ISWG) released a primer entitled “Potential Injection-Induced Seismicity Associated with Oil and Gas Development: A Primer on Technical and Regulatory Considerations Informing Risk Management and Mitigation.” The report provides guidance in mitigating seismic risks associated with wastewater disposal wells.
Megaprojects have become a mainstay of the modern oil and gas landscape, and operators can avoid costly pitfalls if they focus on addressing the human-related problems that include overdesigning facility systems and introducing major changes midway through. Fuad Al-Azman, general manger of area projects at Saudi Aramco, spoke about the challenges facing megaprojects during a panel session at the SPE Annual Technology Conference and Exhibition in Dubai.
A webinar set for 27 September will take a close look at the emerging use of unmanned aerial systems in the oil and gas industry. Balaji Ramachandran, who works in the Geomatics Program in the Department of Applied Sciences at Nicholls, will speak on the new breed of remote sensing platforms.
