APOGCE Networking Luncheon & SPE WA Distinguished Lecturer – Verifying Performance and Capability of New Technology for Surface and Subsurface Facilities

October 25, 2016 @ 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm




As seen in the United States shale oil revolution, the develop­ment of new technology is an enabler in reducing capital costs, simplifying production, increasing the capacity of facilities, and, in some cases, making marginal projects profitable. While deal­ing with significant risk, the challenge of progressing technology can be overcome through technology qualification. A technolo­gy qualification program (TQP) provides a means of identifying risks and taking the correct steps to mitigate rather than avoid them. This lecture summarizes the required steps in qualifying technology and how to keep track of technology development through the technology readiness level ranking system.

Presenter: Ed Grave

Ed is an upstream senior technical advi­sor for fractionation and separation at ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company in Spring, Texas. Recognized in the company for his expertise in advancing new technology, he led ExxonMobil’s effort to design and qualify a separation system for ultra deep water. Grave initiated and is the technical chairman of the joint industry Separations Technology Research Program on qualifying separation equipment. He also served as vice chair of SPE’s Separation Technology Technical Section. Grave graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with an MS degree in 1982.
