Petromall Insights - Expert Centric Software   Dec 2018

Modelling software around the needs of experts

Perhaps the oil and gas industry could achieve far more with digital technology if it could better model software around the
needs of experts. This issue of Petromall Insights looks at what the benefits could be, specific areas more expert-centric software
could help in oil and gas, why it isn’t happening, how it could be done, and how to move forward.
  • Why an expert centric approach to software development may provide more value than the usual business process centric approach
  • SafeKick - better support for real time drilling operations
  • Maana - Better ways to connect disparate pieces of data together
  • Eigen - better understanding safety barriers
  • Intelligent Plant - online tools to better understand how different pieces of equipment operate
  • Think Tank Maths - better algorithms to help experts steer drill bits

Petromall Insights Sept 18: Managing methane leaks in oil and gas   Sep 2018

The oil and gas industry is under pressure to demonstrate that the methane emissions from its operations are low, amid claims
that methane leaks are so high that gas is barely better than coal for power generation. But providing a solid number is very
difficult and expensive to do.

This issue of Petromall Insights looks at the various technologies and methods available to quantify methane emissions from a facility, from detectors of gas molecules to laser systems which monitor an entire facility at once. As you might expect, they come with strengths and weaknesses - in cost and coverage
  • Measuring individual leaks vs overall emissions
  • Quick sensors overview
  • Ultrasonic gas leak detectors
  • Quantitative optical gas imaging
  • Laser scanning for methane by drone
  • Laser scanning via DIAL
