Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the September Facilities Group Technical Event lead by Greg Sevel and Andy Jones About the Presentation Just defining a Digital Twin can be a complex ordeal. So, it should not be surprising that actually creating a useful Digital Twin of an Oil and Gas asset is a challenging and non-linear journey. Worley Digital and Sentient Computing have spent the better part of the last decade approaching this challenge from opposite sides, often partnering to provide a more holistic solution to our customers. Operating on the bleeding edge, we have had our share of failures, learnings, and successes in our journey.…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our Season Opening Technical Meeting in September. About the Presentation NERA established the Centre Of Decommissioning Australia (CODA) in early 2021 in collaboration with the industry. CODA has been set up to work across the entire decommissioning value chain, assisting operators to identify and access new technologies and global best practices, providing the service sector with visibility of the upcoming scale and timing of potential decommissioning activity and supporting the efforts of governments in enabling local execution of work. The Australian decommissioning journey is still in its infancy. We have the opportunity to learn from others experiences and…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the October Facilities Group Technical Event lead by Josh Wickham from GPA Engineering. About the Presentation Pipelines and distribution networks have reliably transported oil and gas across Australia for decades. What is their future in a decarbonized energy sector? Can they be built safely or existing systems re-purposed to supply low carbon fuels such as hydrogen? Josh will highlight the work that is being undertaken in the Australian energy sector determining how new and existing pipelines can be used for transporting gaseous hydrogen. His talk will cover key considerations for design, highlighting some of the technical challenges being assessed, the…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our October Technical Evening Meeting. About the Presentation The Ichthys gas-condensate field is situated in the Browse Basin, North West Shelf of Australia, and the field production commenced in July 2018. The Brewster Member, one of the two reservoirs in the field, is a liquid-rich sandstone reservoir. One of the major uncertainties is the degree of well productivity impairment, caused by condensate banking since the dew point pressure is close to the initial reservoir pressure. The objectives of this study are to evaluate the condensate banking impact on well production performance and to establish a modelling methodology to…Find out more »
An evening to launch SPE Gaia Sustainability in Western Australia with Industry leaders: Stacey Orlandi & Caitlin Westgarth. About the Event The SPE Gaia sustainability group has been created to share content about sustainable development so we can advance together toward a clean energy transition in an inclusive society with oil and gas core to the energy mix, meeting the world’s energy needs whilst living within planetary boundaries. In order to accelerate the energy transition by the oil and gas industry, we need to enable and empower its leaders to create a strategy, direction and the tools for their employees for example upskilling of energy professionals in new technology. During…Find out more »
SPE WA is proud to present the details of the November SPE Distinguished Lecturer Webinar. About the Presentation The global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry is going through disruptive transformation. This term is often heard but one we can now see applied to a large capital intensive industry. For decades, the LNG business had been traditional, cosy, conservative and uncompetitive, with a few large players, opaque and rigid. We consider the drivers that make an industry change, particularly an energy industry and the characteristics of energy markets. We find that LNG meets the criteria of an industry ready for change. Three key factors drive transformation, namely an industry wide crisis,…Find out more »

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the November Facilities Group Technical Event led by Ross Weiter, Principal Consultant and Carbon Capture Lead from Advisian. About the Presentation CCUS is seen by many bodies such as the IEA and the IPCC as one of the key enablers to decarbonizing the economy. Transportation of CO2 is a key focal area in any CCUS project, but while dehydration of natural gas for transportation is well understood and regulated, the same cannot be said for CO2. Dehydration specifications need to consider important project parameters such as ambient temperatures, CO2 pressures and materials of construction. Based on the selected specification,…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our December Technical Evening Meeting. About the Presentation The events of the past year accelerated many changes in our industry, creating not only a new landscape but an increased urgency to deliver on the industry mandates of cost, capital intensity, and carbon. Looking to the current industry dynamics, we see a new cycle of oil and gas demand growth beginning, with the onset of a strong multiyear economic rebound. Industry demand projections for oil and gas continue to show both growth and resilience as a key pillar of the energy mix. In this context of business outlook,…Find out more »
