New E&P Technologies

...more and more data is becoming available to us. 0

Wednesday, November 26, 2014, London, Inmarsat Conference Centre

Integration
It is becoming clear that a new generation of desk-top applications is arriving in which it is possible to integrate multi-measurements - data from satellites, vehicles, outcrops, well logs/core, seismic, production history - at scales ranging from global, regional, basin, play, prospect, field, for interpretation and visualisation by multi-users, by a team of petro-technical professionals.

Integration will be a focus for this event.

At the same time, although progress in the processing and analysis of any sort of petro-technical data is important, for example the analysis of well and seismic data to define areas of brittle shale which are suitable for fracking, the main innovations in petroleum technology arise from step changes in our ability to acquire data or to control what we do.

Thus, this event will also focus on what’s happening in a few areas of "new technology", for example:

Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs)

Small RPAs are already used for activities such as:

A big lesson from the agricultural sector is that the use of RPAs is an order of magnitude less expensive than buying costly satellite data (using the same technologies: SAR, infra-red, high resolution cameras).

But some RPAs are the size of executive jets! How much more is possible?

And what happens when we can take the InterNet to remote wildernesses?

Fibre Optics:

Automation & Remote Control

Our November Finding Petroleum Forum will address these technologies and, we hope, many more!

Bill Green - Global Account Director - Hermes Data Communications

Tsunami Communications - A Familiar Analogy?


Bill Green has had a varied career in telecommunications for over 25 years, none more varied than leading a team of engineers to Indonesia to recover communications after the Tsunami of 2004. Bill will describe the operation in the aftermath of the largest reported natural disaster in history and draw analogies of how this experience compares with and has informed Bill’s approach to providing remote site communications in the oil & gas sector, supporting both seismic data transfer as well as back office functions and crew welfare.

Hermes Data Communications
Hermes Datacomms, a company which provides satellite and data communications services specifically to the Oil & Gas sector with customers including Maersk, Parker Drilling, PSN, KBR, BP, Eni, Fluor and Petronas. With over 150 employees and earth stations in Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and UAE (amongst other locations), Hermes enables reach and rapid deployment to meet the rigours of the industry.

Rayane Hoballah - Director and Co-founder - Feather Tech

Airborne Seismic!


Rayane, director and co-founder of Feather Tech, has developed an acute sense for entrepreneurship from a young age. He assumed the responsibility of directing his first start-up at the age of 20, leading a university-wide consultancy agency to increase the profitability and functionality of numerous international engineering companies. Rayane is a graduate from the French Engineering School Grenoble INP, and is currently completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. His multidisciplinary skills and interests have lead him into a vast and exciting journey in the energy sector, from renewables and nuclear, to oil and gas, as well as Carbon Capture and Storage, a technology in which he is a firm believer, and he has chosen as the subject of his PhD thesis.

Feather Tech
Feather Tech is a company that aims to reduce the cost of onshore exploration, while providing high resolution seismic data for onshore drilling. Our operation brings novel optimization and state-of-the-art robotic technologies to the exploration process. The modularity and flexibility resulting from these technologies create a revolutionary opportunity for the field of oil and gas exploration.

David Hill - Chief Technology Officer - OptaSense Ltd

Life-of-well optimisation using fibre-optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)

Talk Description.
It has been two decades since fibre-optic sensors were first deployed downhole for monitoring purposes. Although the uptake of point pressure and temperature fibre-optic sensors, as well as Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS), has been relatively slow, today they are accepted tools in the reservoir engineers arsenal of sensors that can be deployed to monitor wells. With the recent introduction of fibre-optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) the range of downhole monitoring applications and new capabilities has significantly increased and is poised to transform the industries ability to optimise well design and production throughout the life of the well. In this presentation we will show how DAS can be used in completions to evaluate the effectiveness of hydraulic fracture treatments. In production we will show how this technology is now being used to provide permanent on-demand flow monitoring and is being developed to also have a permanent microseismic monitoring capability. Also we will show how when used as a seismic receiver the DAS fibre is transforming the ability of operators to evaluate their reservoirs and optimise them in processes such as Enhanced Oil Recovery.
David is a QinetiQ Senior Fellow and the Chief Technology Officer at OptaSense. Since jointly founding OptaSense he has concentrated on developing the uses of DAS technology within the Oil & Gas industry. David has a BSc(Hons) in Imaging Sciences from the University of Westminster, London and a PhD in Physics, from the University of Kent in the UK.

OptaSense Ltd
Based in the UK, OptaSense is a wholly company of QinetiQ, a FTSE250 multinational defence technology company.

Andy Bull - VP, Emerging Technology - INOVA Geophysical

Keeping Pace with the Needs of Onshore Seismic Exploration

Talk Description.
The needs of the seismic industry for onshore oil and gas exploration continue to expand. Concerns about the environment combined with the need for higher quality, higher productivity seismic data have continued to drive innovations in equipment. These primary drivers guide technology development and have yielded seismic recording systems which are lighter, use less power and can deliver superior quality results. Many of the innovations are due in part, to a merger of technologies which include source, system and sensor advances, creating a well-balanced marriage of basic capabilities. In addition to the hardware, an improved understanding of methods and field practices are delivering seismic data with impressive results.

INOVA Geophysical
INOVA was formed in March 2010 when BGP and ION Geophysical each contributed land seismic equipment assets to a new and independent joint venture company. INOVA's strengths lie in their ability to develop and support rugged and reliable seismic acquisition equipment that enable geophysical service providers to efficiently design and execute complex seismic acquisition programs on behalf of their E&P customers around the world.

INOVA's offerings encompass three major product lines:

- Land acquisition systems including G3i HD (cable) and Hawk (cableless)
- Land source products including the AHV-IV 364 and 380 series, the Univib small vibe and their new Vib Pro HD source controller
- Digital sensors, including the VectorSeis 3C receiver and the AccuSeis 1C receiver

INOVA's management team perseveres to create a unique 'best of both' culture that draws upon the distinctive attributes of its parent owners' skill sets and operating philosophies. INOVA's technical professionals reflect ION's rich tradition of innovation in land seismic product development, ARAM's philosophy of 'no excuses' customer service, and the practical operating insights BGP has acquired as the world's largest land seismic contractor. This unique blend of insights and capabilities ensure that INOVA's products remain on the cutting-edge of innovation, guided by the practical reality of what contractors require to reliably execute complex seismic programs in the most difficult operating environments.

INOVA is committed to offer 'Best in Class' customer satisfaction. Through a global network of training, repair, and customer support centers, INOVA field service engineers are located in key petroleum centers close to their customers. These field support teams are available twenty four hours/seven days a week/three hundred sixty days a year and willing to go anywhere, anytime to ensure that INOVA's customers are able to complete their acquisition programs safely, on-time, and within budget. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with their customers, INOVA's field support teams are united by a common call to action: Together, We Get the Job Done.
