TECHNOLOGY-ENABLED COST REDUCTION STRATEGIES FOR DEEP OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION OPERATIONS

JULY 30, 2018

Venue: VICTORIA CROWN PLAZA HOTEL, VICTORIA ISLAND, LAGOS


FOR WHOM

This seminar is designed for senior and middle-level Upstream executives in the oil and gas industry.

OBJECTIVE

The price of oil continues to be low and, despite recent increase, its recovery is uncertain. This is not new to an industry that is used to instability in price. However, it has become mandatory – for organizations to survive – to seek technologies for increasing oil and gas production and reducing facility capital costs and operating costs, while maintaining standards of safety and environmental protection.

The objective of the seminar is to indicate technologies for safe and high performance cost reductions in deep offshore oil and gas exploration and production operations.

Course Content

9.00a.m. – 10a.m: Technology Innovations for the Development of Deep Offshore Fields for High Productivity
10a.m. – 11a.m: Process Control Optimization: Application of Modeling and Simulation Tools for High Capacity Utilization of Equipment and Facilities in Deep Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
11a.m. – 11.30a.m: MORNING TEA AND COFFEE BREAK
11.30a.m. – 12.30p.m: Automation and Mechanization of High-Cost Repetitive Activities, e.g. Drilling and Well Completion Activities

1.30p.m. – 3.00p.m: BUFFET LUNCH
3.00p.m. – 4.00p.m: Use of Robotic Technology for Safe and Cost-Effective Technology ( e.g. to inspect difficult-to-access elements – such as offshore risers – and to pilot unmanned aerial vehicles – i.e. drones – into areas which are dangerous for human activities)
4.00pm - 4.30p.m: CLOSING
4.30p.m. – 5.00p.m: AFTERNOON TEA AND COFFEE
