Platform and Structural Design Considerations Featured Image

Platform and Structural Design Considerations

This presentation describes planning, designing, and arranging of equipment on offshore structures for the safe and efficient production of oil and gas. General criteria is provided for designing living quarters. This content also provides the project engineer with information for determining line size, wall thickness, and pressure rating class. Miscellaneous details to be considered in designing a piping system also are discussed.

Oil and Gas Pipelines Featured Image

Oil and Gas Pipelines

This topic covers the engineering design and construction aspects of oil and gas pipelines. Discusses pipeline history, key design considerations (including hydraulic calculations and mechanical strength), onshore and offshore constructions practices, cost estimating, current operating practices and potential operating problems.

Crude Oil Transportation and Storage Featured Image

Crude Oil Transportation and Storage

Every day, some 85 million barrels of crude oil are transported from producing fields to major refining centers, many of which are located hundreds or thousands of miles apart. Learn how, and at what cost, crude oil is transported in pipelines and tankers - the two most practical and economical methods for moving large volumes of crude oil over long distances.

Offshore Production Facilities Featured Image

Offshore Production Facilities

Starting with a broad look at the offshore oil and gas industry, including its history, current scope, trends, challenges and an overview of regulatory environments, this Topic examines the primary design considerations for offshore production facilities and identifies key drivers and decision factors in offshore project development. It goes on to describe the various types of platforms, surface components and subsea production facilities: their design features, equipment components operating considerations and areas of application. Included are discussions of offshore pipelines, production equipment and operations, and requirements for decommissioning and removal of offshore facilities. The presentation concludes with case studies of deepwater operations in West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico.

ESP Smart Alarms for Real Time Diagnostics Featured Image

ESP Smart Alarms for Real Time Diagnostics

Continuous monitoring of electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) ensures optimal working operating conditions and avoids deferred oil production. With the increased population of ESPs deployed worldwide, a comprehensive alarm triggering system is at the center of modern oilfield production surveillance systems.


Don’t Flare, Monetize

SLB and Chord Energy join this SPE Tech Talk to demonstrate methods that can eliminate routine flaring from production facilities in the Bakken, leading to increased revenues and decreased emissions.

Hydrate Flow Assurance Modeling — Predicting Hydrate Formation in Oil & Gas Pipelines Featured Image

Hydrate Flow Assurance Modeling — Predicting Hydrate Formation in Oil & Gas Pipelines

Gas hydrate formation in oil and gas pipelines may cause flow assurance problems, especially in deep water subsea tiebacks. Agglomeration and bedding of hydrates particles and its deposition on pipe walls may form blockages that stop production. This presentation will cover the systems approach that we, at the Center for Hydrate Research of the Colorado School of Mines, have followed to design our mathematical models to predict gas hydrate formation in multiphase flow pipelines.
