White Paper: Is Your Drilling Program on Track To Efficient Production?
While more operators than ever are digitizing their operations, they also need to consider the advantages of selecting a scheduling software. This White Paper illustrates the benefits of selecting AI-powered scheduling software that properly addresses the total needs of a drilling program.
A Cost-Effective EOR Technique To Reduce Carbon Intensity With Polymer Flooding and Modular Skids
Polymer flooding increases the RF up to 20% at $3 to $6 per extra bbl of oil. It also contributes towards reducing CO2 emission by 3–6 times per bbl. It’s a proven technology with more than 300 projects worldwide. SNF offers modular plug and pump facilities connected to existing infrastructure.
White Paper: Surface Your Data—A Manifesto for Data Liberation in Subsurface & Drilling
To optimize decision-making, minimize risk, and create value, oil and gas companies can turn to liberated, contextualized data. For exploration or drilling, liberated, contextualized data can help the upstream industry make trustworthy decisions that save time and costs. This paper explains how.
CO2 EOR Could Be Industry’s Key to a Sustainable Future or Its Biggest Missed Opportunity
The challenge is immense, but the promise is, too. If the oil and gas business can scale up CO2 EOR, then it can play a very big role in mitigating climate change while offering carbon-negative fuels.
Inter-Well Relationships Are Messy, But That Can Be a Good Thing
Groups of wells communicate, interfere, and hit each other. It is an unruly scene that can offer benefits. Three stories look at why competing fracture networks can add to the production from rock that might otherwise be missed.
