CALGARY, Canada (Bloomberg) -- TransCanada Corp. told shippers the Gulf Coast portion of its Keystone pipeline won’t be in service before mid-January, three days after it said in a letter to regulators that it anticipated beginning service ...
Bloomberg) -- Statoil ASA, Norway’s state-owned oil producer, discovered as much as 3 trillion cubic feet of gas in a fifth find off Tanzania and is confident it will add more resources as it plans as many as 12 wells through 2015. ...
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.
To avoid costly, unpredictable trips downhole, a new technique for running openhole whipstock and sidetracking operations was developed, and tested, for both onshore and offshore applications.
Hydraulic fractures can enhance well productivity, ultimate recovery and economics. Although reservoir simulation can quantify hydrofrac performance, simulation outcomes vary. A case study in Oman shows that considerable uncertainty can be removed by understanding the impact of flow dynamics, reservoir architecture, and gridding assumptions, thereby saving time and facilitating planning.
The world’s first 95/8-in., 10,000-psi-rated, tubing-retrievable subsurface safety valves were qualified for use in two major high-pressure, non-associated gas discoveries offshore Saudi Arabia
