October 2017

October 2017 AOGR

Traditional metrics for gauging upstream activity have been completely redefined as the 2017 recovery in U.S. land activity has shown operators doubling down on efficiencies. While it may have taken nearly nine months to comprehend the productivity gains, it took less than a week from Hurricane Harvey’s landfall for the industry to show its mettle. Shut-in production facilities from the Eagle Ford to the deepwater Gulf of Mexico were fired back up, and the heart of America’s refining complex along the Gulf Coast almost immediately restarted. It’s all testimony to resilience beyond belief!

Oil Field Chemistry
Specialty chemicals are crucial to sustaining production and mitigating equipment downtime caused by scales, asphaltenes, corrosion, wax and hydrates. Apache Corporation’s director of global upstream chemicals discusses how chemistry can be applied to not only eliminate recurring production problems, but also enhance bottom-line well performance. In addition, reports present new chemistry advancements formulated for specific drilling, production, completion and production applications.

Eagle Ford Activity
The swift activity rebound in the Eagle Ford Shale has been nothing short of astonishing. The Sept. 8 Baker Hughes weekly survey counted 65 rigs turning to the right, representing a 98.5 percent recovery from Aug. 25, just before Harvey blew inland. In the October issue, leading Eagle Ford operators share their success stories in getting rigs and frac fleets working again, and more importantly, detail their drilling and development plans going forward.

LNG Export Update
The Sabine Pass terminal in Louisiana–the first lower-48 operating LNG export facility–commenced operation of the first of six liquefaction trains early last year. By the end of July, the facility already had shipped U.S. LNG cargoes to 25 nations. With additional trains coming on line at Sabine Pass, and five more large-scale Gulf Coast and East Coast export terminals slated to start up over the next two years, special reports examine how LNG exports will continue to ramp demand for U.S. natural gas.

Gulf of Mexico Operations & LAGCOE!
A special AOGR report about the Hess Corp.-operated Stampede Field achieving its first oil milestone is yet another astounding industry feat. Experts from the Stampede project team reveal how dynamic simulation technology was used to optimize the performance of both the subsea and topsides systems engineered for one of the Gulf’s deepest and most challenging fields. Those reports dovetail with the comprehensive Independents Guide to the Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition, featuring all the highlights at this year’s show.
