The Elimination Flow Behind the Casing - the Basis of Safe Oil and Gas Wells Operation

#4 (112), September 2018 The Elimination Flow Behind the Casing - the Basis of Safe Oil and Gas Wells Operation

One of the topical problems of wells safe operation is the flow behind the casing. This phenomenon poses a threat to the wellhead pressure loss, casing integrity damage, blowout, cratering, emergence of formation an anthropogenic deposits.

Highly Effective Solutions for Killing Wells with AHFP

#4 (112), September 2018 Highly Effective Solutions for Killing Wells with AHFP

At the present stage of the oil industry development one of the main tasks is to maintain the current level of oil production. This problem is solved by increasing the volume of drilling, as well as through the intensification of the work of the old production wells at the fields.

Genetic Basin Analysis

#3 (111), June 2018 Genetic Basin Analysis

Experience with a vast array of world-scale oil, gas and infrastructure project. Integrated planning and concept selection for greater efficiency. Best-in-industry safety and environmental performance.

From bytes to barrels

#6 (108), December 2017 From bytes to barrels

Developing energy requires a big toolbox. It relies on detailed geological surveys to find the oil and gas, high-perfomance drilling platforms to access the reservoirs and, finally, the ability to transport the crude on natural gas responsibly.

Green Ocean Absorbing Solutions is a Breakthrough in Fight Against Oil Spills

#6 (108), December 2017 Green Ocean Absorbing Solutions is a Breakthrough in Fight Against Oil Spills

At all stages of oil related activities, ranging from oil exploration and production to waste treatment, the formation of oil and oil products spills occurs. 

Why it’s Time to Invest in Digital Oil?

#6 (108), December 2017 Why it’s Time to Invest in Digital Oil?

New technological developments have consistently pushed oil and gas operators into new frontiers — deeper waters, more remote reservoirs and unconventional plays — that were once out of reach. While advances have spanned the value chain, horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing unlocking shale resources played a major role in creating the oversupply responsible for the market shift and resulting in low crude prices.

 

Developing Technology Solutions

#5 (107), October 2017 Developing Technology Solutions

As society pursues energy solution that will lower greenhouse gas emissions, technological advancements will be instrumental in providing the global economy with the energy it needs.

Subsurface Integration and Surreillance

Optimal data integration for faster, better decisions

ExxonMobil delivered its first technical seminar for Kazakhstani drillers

#2 (104), April 2017 special issueExxonMobil delivered its first technical seminar for Kazakhstani drillers

two senior ExxonMobil drilling experts led a two-day workshop on November 3-4, 2016, for about 30 drilling engineers of Kazakhstan`s national company "KazMunayGas" (KMG) and its subsidiaries. 

Good Vibration

#1 (103), February 2017 Good Vibration

How upening convention led to a game-changing drilling innovation.
In 2009, ExxonMobile engineers drilling into deep offshore oil deposites in the Gulf of Mexico unexpectedly encountered a particularly hard and abrasive rock formations. Instead of taking the drill bit half a day to drill though this formation, it ultimately took four runs, or trips in and out of the hole, and three weeks.

Small-Scale Refineries: Could They Resolve Gasoline Shortages In Kazakhstan?

#6 (102), December 2016 special issueSmall-Scale Refineries: Could They Resolve Gasoline Shortages In Kazakhstan?

History of rapid development of the small-scale oil refining in the CIS falls in the middle of 90-s of the last century and the beginning of 2000’s. At the same time, in the mid 90-s mini-refineries started closing in Europe, though earlier the small refineries existed in Germany, Austria, Poland and other countries.

Oilfield Chemistry of Zirax Company for Enhancement of the Efficiency of Oil and Gas Wells Operation

#6 (102), December 2016 special issueOilfield Chemistry of Zirax Company for Enhancement of the Efficiency of Oil and Gas Wells Operation

 Reduced production rates of wells due to the deterioration of reservoir properties is one of the concerning issues in oil and gas field operation. Reduction in porosity and permeability of reservoir and especially its bottom-hole zone (BHZ) can occur during drilling, low-quality development and well killing, as well as during their progressive watering out. The use of high quality oilfield chemistry and advanced technologies enables minimization of the negative impact of the above factors and facilitates the operation of wells, increases their production rates and extends their field life.
