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

Webinar: Leading Virtual Teams from Global to Teleworking

More teams are operating virtually and the degree of virtual working could encompass a team that is spread across the globe. A number of issues become predominant for the manager in this setting. These include: managing the “them” and “us” syndrome amongst dispersed team members; motivating an individual that operates remotely from other members; creating a sense of team unity and identity; and understanding the range of national cultures that shape local individual decision making. By creating a collaborative environment, dispersed team members are encouraged to capture and share knowledge that aims at both the team and the organization’s institutional memory.

Webinar: Gas Hydrate Testing under Flowing Conditions: Laboratory and Field Cases

By registering for this webinar, you can listen to the speaker live and watch the slide broadcast of the presentation without leaving your desk.

Replicating field conditions for flow assurance experiments often presents many challenges. These challenges are usually centered on designing an experiment with appropriately scaled geometry, selecting the test conditions, and reproducing the operating environment all while balancing the cost associated with the project. This presentation will provide an overview of different techniques that have been utilized at Southwest Research Institute (SwRIÒ) to study gas hydrate formation in flowing conditions from a variety of scenarios relevant to hydrocarbon production and transport.
