Applying well decommissioning lessons learned globally to reduce Australia’s estimated USD40.5 billion offshore decommissioning liability.
SPE WA is pleased to announce the second SPE WA Facilities Group Technical Event ' Applying well decommissioning lessons learned globally to reduce Australia’s estimated USD40.5 billion offshore decommissioning liability' lead by Christopher Murphy a Senior Research Fellow from Curtin University Oil and Gas Innovation Centre. About the Presentation: Australia is entering a new era in the oil and gas sector with significant offshore decommissioning projects to be executed over the next 50 years. An executive summary was made public by NERA in March 2020 based on a commissioned Advisian report “Offshore Oil and Gas Decommissioning Liability (Australia)”. The estimated decommissioning liability, including all wells, facilities and pipelines, is USD40.5 billion…Find out more »
SPE WA is pleased to announce the third SPE WA Facilities Group Technical Event for 2021, ‘Harnessing rigs and innovation to reduce Field Development & Decommissioning Costs,” lead by Darren O’Leary, GM Field Development, from ICON Engineering. About the Presentation A perfect storm of low oil & gas prices, plus decommissioning and decarbonisation pressures, is forcing our industry to identify and adopt a wide range of innovative lower cost Field Development and Decommissioning solutions. One of these is to extend the utility of Drilling Rigs already mobilised to drill and P&A offshore wells. The utilisation of the full capability of offshore Drilling Rigs beyond development drilling and P&A, including facilities installation…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the July Facilities Group Technical Event: "Digital Twins and Hydrogen in Gas Distribution Systems" lead by James Holbeach, Global Director of Energy and Flow Assurance, from Wood. About the Presentation It is simple right? Just inject a bit of hydrogen into the natural gas pipeline, make sure the gas meets spec, and you can transport hydrogen in the natural gas grid. Life was not meant to be simple, and unfortunately, neither is hydrogen transport in natural gas. While it looks deceptively simple it can actually be quite complex and standard engineering design practices need to be reconsidered. In this talk,…Find out more »
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the August Facilities Group Technical Event lead by Dr Gongkui Xiao, Research Fellow from The University of Western Australia. About the Presentation Hydrogen is increasingly being acknowledged as an energy carrier that will help achieve a low or net zero-carbon energy future. Currently, more than 95% of the hydrogen in the world is produced from fossil fuels, with or without the capture of the co-produced carbon dioxide. When the carbon dioxide is captured and sequestered (e.g. permanently stored in depleted oil or gas reservoirs or deep saline aquifers), the hydrogen is referred to as blue hydrogen. Several gas-gas separation operations are involved in…Find out more »
