World Oil webcasts and webinars are in-depth presentations on oil and gas applications, trends and technology. Moderated by a World Oil editor and including technical experts, these events are focused on providing qualified engineers and professionals in the upstream oil and gas industry with the latest information pertaining to offshore and onshore exploring, drilling, completions and production.
Increase Solids and Fluid Handling Capacity, Drilling Fluid Recovery, and Waste Reduction to the Max
September 22, 2022
Sponsored by: Schlumberger
The biggest challenge operators are facing today is the bottleneck at the shakers, the ability to drill faster and the shakers’ ability to keep up with the drill rates, also for those shakers to retain as much of the expensive drilling fluid as possible while keeping those fluids out of the waste stream. The MONGOOSE Max high-capacity shaker is the latest advancement in shakers, significantly increasing solids and fluid handling capacity by 35%, and fluid recovery by 40%. With the integration of the new vacuum technology, the overall oil on cuttings by weight average is 10% over the more than 18% with third-party shakers. The whole mud on cuttings is reduced by up to 40%, with the discarded solids passing 99% of the US EPA Paint Filter Liquids Test 9095B and lowering the solids waste stream by 25%.
Electrification of Production Systems for Mature Fields
September 15, 2022

As our industry transitions over the coming years toward fully decarbonized energy, we will be facing the imperative of answering the demand for conventional energy with new priorities on capital stewardship, increased productivity, and greater environmental sustainability. Investing billions of dollars in large new greenfield developments will become more and more difficult to justify. Operators will turn to their existing assets to connect additional resources and extract more oil and gas from them, with the priority on projects with low breakeven, low carbon, and short payback. Electrification of production systems will provide answers for this situation. But while operators fully understand the value of electrification for greenfield developments, its benefit for existing mature fields is less well known. This webcast will focus on the benefits of electrification for wells, subsea, and topside in brownfield applications. During this discussion, we will expand on the new capabilities enabled by electric systems that will help push existing frontiers. In addition, we will address some beliefs and myths and demonstrate that incremental investment costs for electrification of existing fields can return a large value while reducing the carbon footprint of our industry.
How to Take Advantage of a Highly Integrated Process Control and Edge Control Platform
September 06, 2022
Sponsored by: Rockwell Automation and Sensia
Integration of edge computers with real-time process control data is important for users who want to implement analysis and advanced data processing in the field. Traditionally, edge computers are a separate device that must be integrated with controllers and flow computers. Custom applications can be run on the edge computer that will allow for highly advanced real-time analysis of the field measurements, however building an edge environment and integrating data can be a non-trivial task. Similarly, selecting the right edge platform requires deep knowledge of security, application, and communication requirements. Sensia provides a new perspective for those wanting to implement edge computing with their real time control systems. We will discuss and show examples of what a highly integrated edge and control environment can look like and how it creates new options for how you manage and plan your automation projects.
