Low oil prices have increased pressure on the oil and gas industry to improve the capital efficiency of major projects. The industry is in need of its own Renaissance. We collectively need to respond to the challenging business environment. A common long-term commitment from all parties involved is required. Systemic issues in our industry – the poor productivity, the cost escalation, the deteriorating returns are being widespread. It is clear we need fundamental transformation of the way we work and collaborate together.

There are plenty of cases of effective partnerships involving the many different companies. The kind of collaboration that needs to happen the whole time. Encouragement of everyone to keep exchanging ideas, to harness the same level of creativity and desire to challenge and transform the status quo. Foreign investments make a huge contribution to the emerging economies, including Kazakhstan. Even though their share in total investment is usually relatively small, foreign investment is one of the main sources of access to technology, capital, management competencies and export markets. Furthermore, collaboration across the industry: investors, operators, services companies and the government entities is vital for moving the industry forward.

RoK has put forward strategy focused on 100 targets that needs to be achieved before 2030 and one of them is new subsoil code that assumes reserves estimation done according to international standards. Caspian regions key stakeholders have to consider the influencing factors and best practices that needs to be adopted, to achieve the best competitive environment through e.g. digitalisation, optimising project executions and working with government on continuously adopting and optimising regulatory conditions.

05 Projects, Facilities and Construction
Session Chairpersons Bagilya Karsybayeva, Agip Karachaganak; Talgat Temirzhanov, ILF Consulting Engineers

During the recent industry downturn operators and industry suppliers have had to explore new ways to improve value delivery and rethink their engineering approach. This implied a thorough analysis of capital projects decision making processes, brownfield extension strategies and involvement of data driven methodologies, to respond to the ever-growing challenges and risks. This session explores case studies from the North Sea and Caspian Sea regions, well-known for their harsh environmental conditions and logistical constraints, where alternative approaches have been deeply analysed in order to select the most value added solution for a stated problem.

Session Chairpersons Assel Salimova, Baker Hughes, a GE company; Amangeldi Makhambetov, Schlumberger

Petrophysics is a key integrating discipline within geosciences, which is applied to explore reservoir understanding and in developing hydrocarbon resources. This year the programme will be extended with a focus on innovative and comprehensive technical topics and case studies related to LWD Petrophysics and Geosteering while drilling through various numerical and analytical techniques. Geosteering is the process of adjusting well trajectory to place the well into the target formation and achieve geological and production objectives. A relatively new discipline for the Caspian, it is increasingly becoming more widely adopted. 
This session will cover a novel approach to porosity evaluation from LWD logs, neural networks for interpretation of deep resistivity measurements and will include a geosteering case study from Kazakhstan.

A definition of “Optimising Project Execution” would be the ‘role of the contracting strategy in increasing the success of project execution’. Contracting strategy can go from full EPC package to multi-package structure with interfaces managed by the Company, and from full reimbursable to full lump sum compensation. This strategy could encompass the following areas:

Organisation: task force approach vs functional matrix organization. What is it better? It probably depends project by project Engineering: how important is to have a solid Front End Engineering Design before entering execution? How risks of re-work can be minimised procurement strategy: long lead items procured by Company, use of frame agreements, importance of pre-qualification of suppliers and contractors
Supply Chain: role of the integrated supply chain and materials (procurement process, expediting, on time supply of materials, customs, etc.) availability in the success of the execution of a project
HSE: very structured and organised project executions are usually very “safe environment” minimising risks for the workers and for the environment.

The involvement of construction and the commissioning team in the early stages of project execution can save time in the completion phases.  It is also vitality important to have appropriate project planning and control.  Whilst project Definition is all about “to choose the right project”, project execution is all about to “do the project right”. It cannot be emphasised enough, how important it is to utterly focus on the target during project execution and construction and how important it is to minimise project changes and drive to the conclusion.

11 Production Operations III
Session Chairpersons Abzal Aitzhanov, TCO; Lyudmila Te, NCOC

In the current challenging oil and gas industry climate, operators are looking for ways to optimise production performance without risking system integrity, safety, and availability. Integration, collaboration and excellent technical expertise are the key components for sustaining production at a desirable level. This session will discuss a number of case studies that have been successfully implemented and proven themselves as “fit-for-purpose” approaches. As a result, a significant increase in production as well as improved forecasting of the production volume outlook has been achieved.
