Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Digital Transformation of the Oil and Gas Industry is changing how we design, build and operate assets. The application of digital twin technologies is allowing the industry to not only speed up the phases of the project, but also allowing the industry cope with resource shortages. In this presentation, the application of these technologies is discussed with example field implementations and field cases:

Improved production monitoring and surveillance;
Improve Errors in Production Allocation
Improved planning and optimization; and
Leveraging of data allowing for smoother operation of assets
Getting Read for Energy Transition for H2 and CO2 Capture
Today’s focus on the application of various technologies has both promising benefits and associated challenges. With the increasing demand for handling and managing Big Data, key enablers are gaining more and more traction by the day. This presentation covers details of where such technologies are possible game changers, playing a critical role in a competitive landscape.

Dale EricksonDr. Dale Erickson serves as the Technical Authority and Technology Development Lead for Wood Group’s Digital Consulting Division. At Wood, he has pioneered the development of real-time, transient, multiphase flow simulators, leak detection systems, and control/optimization software for platforms/pipelines and wrote most of the core code for the multiphase pipeline simulator. In addition, he has been involved in numerous technical studies involving transient multiphase flow and dynamic process modelling. Since 1996, has had a significant role in over 100 projects, by providing functional design, detailed design approval, trouble shooting, tuning, quality review and testing and technical supervision. He first worked in the area of flow assurance by writing the first version of the Colorado School of Mines Hydrate program in 1983; then developed high accuracy Equations of State (EOS) in conjunction with NIST in Boulder, Colorado, for things like CO2 in the Critical Region, while getting his PhD from Rice University. He co-developed a thermal soil model enhancement and a bundle model enhancement for OLGA and developed the first commercial model for paraffin formation. He has recently developed a model of Oil Shale Well Operation, including a simplified Reservoir Model. His recent project deployments included a real-time on-line model for the largest CO2 Storage Network currently in operations.

Willow LiuModeratorWillow Liu is the chief scientist of MEDENG, a technology company focusing on multiphase flow measurement research and product design. Willow has been involved in the studies of complex New-Newtonian multiphase fluid flow in the fields of biomedical and oil/gas for over 25 years.

Willow has recently taken an interest in applying this expertise to emission measurement and management. Her goal is to leverage multiphase flow measurement tools to develop an efficient engineering tool for accurately measuring and managing emissions in various industrial processes.

Willow is currently serving as the admin chair of SPE Flow Measurement Technical Section.
