WASHINGTON D.C. (Bloomberg) -- Deepwater oil and gas exploration would be allowed to proceed in parts of the western Gulf of Mexico as part of a budget compromise. Language in the legislation would implement a 2012 U.S.- Mexico agreement co ...
HOUSTON (Bloomberg) -- Marathon Oil Corp., the U.S. energy explorer that spun off its refineries two years ago, is seeking a buyer for North Sea oilfields as it shrinks its asset base to focus on expanding onshore North American production. ...
Rig advances come in all shapes and sizes. From a line of software code to a BOP stack, and from deepwater drilling vessels to walking land rigs, these innovations describe a dynamic industry focused on safety, efficiency and capability, in some of the most difficult circumstances on earth. In the following three articles, we look at offshore and onshore newbuild rigs, and highlight a few of the innovations that, on a daily basis, reinvent the process of drilling a hole in the ground.
A production optimization experiment, conducted in the Marcellus shale, suggests that of all varied completion parameters examined, increasing the stage length poses the highest potential for cost-savings. Further studies should be conducted, using a more sophisticated model, in which the attributes are fully dependent on each other.
In the U.S. and Canada, additions to fleets increased availability, while activity decreased. The global offshore mobile fleet posted another modest gain, with 42 newbuilds entering service in the last year.
The northernmost region holds great promise, but increasingly, the risk is that it remains just so. Doubts are gathering about whether governmental policy, combined with changing industry economics, will permit the development of the last frontier.
