Researchers at NETL are working to increase the role that AI and ML play in everyday E&P operations.
New digital technologies derive actionable intelligence from data generated during oilfield operations, while enabling the ability to implement changes in real time.
Digital technology provides high-density tortuosity logging to address drilling, production challenges
A novel, high-density logging technology illuminates areas of high tortuosity in the wellbore to improve production equipment placement and reduce downhole damage.
Scientists at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering show that microscopic saltwater droplets emulsify crude oil when each has the right composition. Understanding how they combine is important to enhanced oil recovery.
Large-scale flaring has become an issue in the U.S. and elsewhere, both for environmental and resource wastage reasons. A new alternative to flaring is in-the-field micro-scale LNG.
The floating production market experienced a strong 2019, with the highest level of FPSO awards in seven years. Confidence has returned, particularly for the leading contractors, which are managing record orderbooks.
A hybrid UBD/MPD solution for an unconventional gas exploration project proves to mitigate hazards, improve safety, and make future drilling campaigns economically viable.
A new acid treatment system restores declining production and delivers consistent output thereafter.
Wellsite IT has evolved dramatically since the days when seeing a laptop on a wellsite was a rare occurrence. It needed to—today’s technically advanced drilling techniques use high data volumes from multiple providers, meaning reliability and security are more important than ever.
