Do Not Forget the Methane Leaks
Methane monitoring using improved methods is detecting more gas in the atmosphere, increasing the need for better ways to eliminate releases.
Improved Monitoring System for Heavy-Oil Steam-Assisted-Gravity-Drainage Wells
The complete paper provides an overview of the development of fiber-optic sensing for steam-assisted-gravity-drainage (SAGD) applications, including a review of more than 10 years of work in development and field applications in western Canada.
Integrated Surveillance Offshore Turkmenistan
The complete paper describes a work flow in which wells and production networks in the Cheleken Block offshore Turkmenistan are automatically modeled daily with steady-state and transient tools and ultimately analyzed by the Cheleken Block Central Data Gathering System.
Adding the Human Touch to Oilfield Apps
One tech company is using a unique approach to building custom apps for the oil and gas business.
Integrating Enhanced Oil Recovery and Carbon Capture and Storage: Farnsworth Field
The Southwest Partnership on Carbon Sequestration (SWP) is one of seven large-scale demonstration projects sponsored by the US Department of Energy.
Ambient Seismic Imaging Throughout the Unconventional Field’s Life Cycle
Newly developed ambient seismic imaging methods provide valuable information throughout the life cycle of an unconventional field.
Monitoring Acid-Stimulation Treatments With Slickline Distributed-Temperature Sensing
Mechanical-diversion techniques can ensure acid injection into the various intervals of naturally fractured reservoirs.
Making Data Pay
There is talk about digital oil fields and big data and some striking examples of their power. But in real oil fields, a lot of operators are still running fields with systems relying on big paper.
Pressure to Reduce Methane Emissions Highlights the Need for Better Monitoring
The US government is working on regulations to reduce oil industry methane emissions by more than 40% over the next 10 years.
Pad Sites Offer Openings for New Measurement Tools
At the recent Unconventional Resources Technical Conference in Denver, a direct measurement of what is downhole was a theme of new products offered to operators who see the need for more data on what is working, what is not working, and what could be made to work better.
Condition and Performance Monitoring of Subsea Production Systems
Integrity management involves availability, access, and the analysis of necessary information.
