OPENING

Aberdeen Offshore Energies UK conference - meeting decarbonisation challenges, justifying continued exploration, attracting graduates, platform electrification vs CCS

Carbon ratchets “now routine” in E&P lending contracts - linking the interest rate on a loan to CO2 emissions and continuous improvement is becoming “almost routine” says energy specialist law firm Bracewell

Counting Scope 3 emissions challenges - a complex challenge. Ian Thomas of Vysus Group explains what is expected, why you should not rely on offsetting or count avoided emissions, and the importance of data credibility

SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL DATA MANAGERS CONFERENCE REPORT

Oil and gas data management skills are very useful on low carbon projects - such as the ability to work out which data types are most important and build governance systems around them. Jess Kozman of Katalyst Data Management explains

Tagging unstructured documents – Lee Hatfield from Flare Solutions explained how tags can be used to describe unstructured documents by their types or scientific disciplines, or the topics they may contain

Encouraging wider sharing of energy data - Ed Evans of the Open Data Institute (ODI) explains how energy companies should be able to see value and pathways to reducing emissions from wider data sharing

OPERATIONS TECHNOLOGY

The carbon and energy cost gains from better motors - vast amounts of energy is wasted in all industries because of motors powered too large for their applications, or not being the most efficient models, says ABB

Can you develop a solution for IOT + satellite? - Satellite operator Inmarsat has a program to support companies to develop IOT solutions, systems and equipment for onshore oil and gas operators

How OT security strategies are evolving - Operations technology cybersecurity may be at a similar level of maturity to where IT security was in 2002, says Trustwave’s Darren Van Booven

Using ‘edge’ computing in gas flow meters - Aramco researchers have developed a wet gas flowmeter with a sophisticated edge computer, with the memory and processing capability to do measurement corrections, equation of state models, diagnostic models and stochastic machine learning models

How digital tech can help continuously improve offshore operations - Purchasing and contract management executive Stephane Planeix shares advice, including ‘lean’, automated data collection, remote monitoring, CMMS and managing supplier performance

CO2 STORAGE TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE REPORT

Why exploration skills can be most useful in CO2 storage - "to understand the behaviour of a CO2 plume in storage, the skills of an exploration geologist may be more relevant than the skills of a reservoir engineer,” said Halliburton’s Geovani Christopher Kaeng

A plan for monitoring CO2 storage integrity - how should companies monitor CO2 storage complexes to ensure CO2 is being stored safely? CCUS consultant Robert Hines shared some advice

Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing for CO2 injection monitoring - Fibre optic cable-based sensing can be used for multiple areas of CO2 storage monitoring, including monitoring CO2 injection into the well, monitoring where the CO2 plume goes, induced seismicity and temperature effects.

Geoscientists needed to define more UK CO2 storage - With the currently licensed UK CO2 storage predicted to provide sufficient capacity until 2030, and new sites needing up to 10 years to characterise and license, geoscientists are needed to work on new storage sites now

CCS and the North Sea Transition Deal agreed between UK industry and government - industry will support the deployment of UK CCUS Projects and the transition to low carbon energy by re-purposing relevant assets for CO2 storage

PIDX EMISSIONS DATA CONFERENCE REPORT

How to Improve emissions data by using digital technology standards, getting better data from suppliers, and moving from ‘proxy’ to measured emissions. Report from the June 22 London PIDX forum

Schlumberger is pursuing a plan to reduce its Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, with the toughest categories being the emissions from its customers and its suppliers. Reem Radwan from Schlumberger explained
