Overview of the Energy Transition

In this course, we focus on several key aspects of the energy transition, starting with the scientific basis of global warming and the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on our climates. We also summarize the UN Paris Agreement and the aspirational target of limiting global warming to a maximum of 2°C by 2050. We review the historical energy supply, demand, and greenhouse gas emissions to date, and the options available to reduce CO2 emissions. We then turn to the drivers and projections of a lower-carbon energy future through the rapid expansion of affordable renewable energy resources, hydrogen production, the reduction of methane emissions, and carbon capture and storage opportunities. Lastly, we discuss three critical requirements to achieve the net zero goals.

Gas Processing and NGL Markets Featured Image

Gas Processing and NGL Markets

This course offers an overview of the expanding gas processing sector, which has been impacted by the rapid development of unconventional gas. It explains how rich natural gas is first separated into methane and NGL and transported to fractionation plants, where it is separated into ethane, LPGs (propane and butanes) and natural gasoline. Special attention is given to the various uses for these liquid hydrocarbons, the market prices and economics of various rich gas streams when separated and marketed into individual components and their historical international market supply-demand and pricing profiles.

Abatement Of GHG Emissions By Simplifying Field Architecture With Multiphase Flowmeters In Onshore US Shale: A Field Case Study Featured Image

Abatement Of GHG Emissions By Simplifying Field Architecture With Multiphase Flowmeters In Onshore US Shale: A Field Case Study

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas (GHG). Over 20 years, it is 80 times more potent at warming than carbon dioxide, with onshore conventional wellsite production facilities being the source of more than 50% of petroleum methane emissions in the United States (US). An operator working in the gas condensate window of the Eagle Ford shale has been diligently looking for innovative transition technologies to help minimize methane emissions from wellsite sources. Other key sustainability attributes for the project were capex and opex savings while simplifying well-pad architecture.

An Introduction to Methane Emission Measurement, Mitigation and the MEM Technical Section for the P&F Community.

To enhance knowledge sharing, dissemination, and interaction across the different technical disciplines involved in Methane Emission Measurement and Mitigation, addressing: The total systems planning from the measurement advancement to the mitigation strategies. The Flow Assurance Challenges and Operations Planning. The resources available from the MEM technical section are currently in operation or development. The expert panel will discuss the practical aspects of Methane Emission Measurement and Mitigation for the P&F community. Each speaker will provide a 20-min high-level introduction to the subtopics talk followed by a 30 min interactive Q&A. session. Brendan Smith, CTO & Co-Founder at SeekOps, will talk about enabling the energy transition with robotics: Methane emission monitoring using aerial drones. Willow Z. Liu, Chief Scientist (Multiphase Flow), MEDENG Technologies Canada Inc. will discuss emission measurement: The Power Of Reimagined Multiphase Flow Meters.

Upcoming Produced Water Treatment Challenges Related to Carbon Capture & Storage and Geothermal Featured Image

Upcoming Produced Water Treatment Challenges Related to Carbon Capture & Storage and Geothermal

New CCS and geothermal projects will require novel produced water treatment technologies to process HP/HT saline produced water streams. These can contain components such as methane and CO2 in addition to the contaminants present in produced waters from oil and gas producing fields. Some of the existing produced water technologies are suitable and qualified for these applications, while in some areas the design envelope needs to be enlarged, or new technologies are needed. Various aspects around these topics will be discussed.
