COVID-19 and the Energy Industry – A Transitory Shock or New Path?

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 9:00 AM

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused acute disruptions the world over. The energy sector, in particular, has been severely impacted raising questions like: • How have collapsed oil prices affected investment decisions and strategic priorities? • What measures have companies taken to reduce the stress on their business, finance and people? • What changes are more temporary versus permanent? • How have digitalization initiatives been impacted? These are just some of the questions that Crystol Energy and AspenTech have tackled in an online survey, and now we’re ready to share the findings. Please join Lee Nichols, Editor in Chief of Hydrocarbon Processing, as he hosts a lively discussion with Dr. Carole Nakhle, CEO, Crystol Energy, and Ron Beck, Energy Industry Director, AspenTech. Together, they’ll discuss the results and provide their own unique insight on the current situation facing the energy industry.

The New Generation of Vallourec High-Strength Sour Service Grades

Thursday, November 5, 2020 9:00 AM

Whatever the level of difficulty of your well environment – in GoM with 20K offshore projects, in Brazil with complex offshore salt domes formations or in the Middle East with extreme sour and high pressure (15K) conditions – Vallourec supports you with a comprehensive tubular offer in high-strength sour service grades. With the decrease of oil prices, operators are further challenging us to push the technical limits in sour service materials by finding the most cost-effective solution that combines high-strength steels and good resistance to sulphide stress cracking (SSC). In this area, VM 110 XS grade has been developed for extreme sour service conditions (ppH2S> 15psi) with 110ksi Specified Minimum Yield Stress (SMYS). The limit is also being pushed further with the field-proven VM 125 SS grade and newly developed VM 125 ESS and VM 130 MS grades with even higher SMYS (125ksi and 130ksi) to be used in milder service conditions. During this webcast, Carine Landier will share the methodology necessary to qualify these materials for such critical conditions. The results so far will reflect both the performance of the new grades developed and the new challenges we face

Artificial Intelligence based Response Prioritization for Electric Submersible Pumps

Wednesday, November 4, 2020 10:06 AM

A thousand alarms but only one important event. This is the reality facing many operators of electric submersible pumps (ESPs). With so much reliance on people rather than digital tools to prioritize events, it is difficult for field engineers to respond to the most important. The disparate, hit-and-miss analytics of slow-loop systems makes it difficult for operators to identify ESP issues and respond to them in a timely manner. Sensia AiRP captures, prioritizes, resolves, and reclassifies ESP events in an integrated environment, creating a single-view workflow that brings together the latest advances in AI and powerful data visualization to automate the prioritization process. By automatically and intelligently analyzing ESP events in real time, AiRP empowers you to boost operational efficiency, optimize lift, and minimize downtime by significantly cutting the response time to potentially harmful events. This solution harnessing Sensia’s full capabilities represents the first step towards lift autonomy.

Ask the Experts! Prescriptive Maintenance in the Cloud: How to Successfully Implement Predictive Analytics

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 10:00 AM

In changing times cloud-based Predictive Analytics have become a critical solution for companies focused on improving reliability, sustainability and business continuity. But how can companies ensure their Predictive Analytics projects deliver the results their business needs? Pilot purgatory happens when companies get stuck in the pilot or testing phase of a new technology. It bogs companies down with significant time, money, and resource costs with no end in sight. Unable to achieve meaningful progress results in stalled projects that can linger for months, even years. In this webinar, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to the experts. Do you set the right goals for your predictive analytics pilot that will delivers an actionable outcome? When registering for the webinar, please make sure to add your questions in the comments section so they can be addressed during the webinar. The experts will discuss how you get a head start on your pilot project: • Understand condition based maintenance versus predictive maintenance • Understand predictive versus prescriptive analytics • Data and technology requirements • Online or offline evaluation and testing • Tips for post pilot rollout success
