Webinar: Transitioning CO2 EOR to CO2 storage

The CO2 Capture Project, consisting of BP, Chevron, Petrobras, and Suncor in 2016, with the assistance of consultants from ERM, completed a study on the transitioning of EOR projects to CO2 storage. The study’s objective was to understand regulatory frameworks in the context of CO2 EOR and how EOR operations could later transition to CO2 storage.

Webinar: Dynamic Paraffin Deposition Cell: A Novel Test Method to Screen Paraffin Chemistries Under Multiphase Conditions

A novel patent pending technology called “Dynamic Paraffin Deposition Cell” has been developed at Nalco Champion to effectively address this issue. This new system has been found to be advantageous over conventional cold finger operations to study paraffin deposition under more realistic field conditions. Dynamic Paraffin Deposition Cell would help Nalco Champion to select better paraffin mitigation solution for its customers.

Webinar: Estimation of Risk Level Embedded in Drilling Operation Plans

To achieve that goal, the first task is to describe precisely the sources of uncertainties. The limits by which a drilling operation shall conform may be uncertain therefore defining fuzzy risk boundaries. The actual well construction may deviate from the plan, either because of unavoidable uncertainties in measurements as with the actual wellbore position, or because adjustments will be made during the operation such as changes in mud weight and rheology.

New SPE Technical Section: Unmanned Systems

SPE has formed a Technical Section for members to promote the exchange of information and technology, as well as develop understanding of and competence in the area of unmanned systems.

This new technical area covers remotely operated and autonomous vehicle systems, software solutions, and power systems for marine, air, and land environments such as ROVs and drones.

Deepen your learning and share your insights with other SPE members on the subject both virtually and face-to-face.

This section seeks to:

  • Develop capability through workshops and conferences
  • Transfer knowledge through meetings, communication, and PetroWiki
  • Promote safety, professionalism, and social responsibility through ethics, certification, and HSSE-SR
  • Provide public education through STEM volunteering and student competition engagement
