Achieving the Full Potential of Low-cost, Low Carbon Technologies

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 10:00 AM

Low carbon technologies have advanced significantly over the last several years with the advent of Tier IV dual fuel capable of displacing 80%+ of the diesel demand, and other power generation products with improved thermal efficiency. Emission-related performance with these technologies may vary but often falls short of their full potential due in small part to the engine and dual fuel kits and in a much bigger way, the fuel supply. We will discuss engines, dual fuel kits, natural gas options, and how to harmonize all the variables to drive peak performance and more importantly sustained and consistent results.

Innovative Power Section Design Drives Performance and Improves Reliability

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 10:00 AM

Abaco's single direction stators with deviated profiles address drilling stresses on the power section lower end using a variable fit that reduces friction and overheating. The result has been a proliferation of the technology across all the demanding drilling applications in the US shale basins. We will show details of the way Abaco’s OPTIFIT technology addresses stall and thermal damage in challenging drilling environments. Dyno test power curve comparisons showing OPTIFIT versus conventional designs will be presented. We will close with a summary of the field successes in a variety of basins and formations.

The Future of Drilling is Here: Rethinking Drilling Innovation

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 10:00 AM

Faster, cheaper, safer, better. Whether drilling onshore or offshore, these four words represent the challenges and currency of success for any drilling operation. As the industry continues to see new records for faster ROP and reduced NPT, an exciting challenge of consistency within drilling performance and digitalization of the drilling value chain remain. Our industry experts will explain how our clients across continents and basins, sizes (small and large) have benefited from increased speeds of well delivery, consistency in high drilling performance and simplified well design automation. These key outcome metrics were achieved without adding organizational and technical implementation complexities, which are important pillars for seamless adoption across multi-faceted disciplines within organizations.

Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage – Vallourec’s role in the safe deployment of CCUS infrastructures at scale

Thursday, April 15, 2021 9:00 AM

Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage (CCUS) is essential to deliver clean industrial growth and to achieve net-zero ambitions. Recently, CCUS has started to gain momentum thanks to policy support and governmental funding programs and several projects are expected to enter operation in the near future in Europe, Australia and the US. To ensure safe and cost-efficient deployment of such projects, it is key to de-risk the entire CO2 value chain and the required infrastructure. Companies need to be very selective and attentive to quality when selecting tubular products for transporting and storing captured CO2, due to the complex requirements of CCUS projects such as material exposure to low temperatures or corrosive environments. As an end-to-end supplier of high-performance tubular solutions, Vallourec is well positioned to help the industry deploy safe and sustainable CCUS infrastructures worldwide and leverage our built-in competence, adapting our material and product portfolio to meet these requirements and close the knowledge gaps.
