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.

From 3-D to 4-D and Beyond with Full Wavefield Imaging

#4 (100), September 2016 special issueFrom 3-D to 4-D and Beyond with Full Wavefield Imaging

The advanced software that takes seismic imaging to the next dimension.
ExxonMobil invented 3-D seismic in the 1960s - the company was later awarded the Distiguished Achievement Avard by  the Society of Exploration Geophysicists for what ir said was "the most important geophysical innovation in the past 30 years". Until now, 3-D imaging was the most accurate method for locating fossil fuel deposits. The challenge with 3-D seismic was that it was difficult to process all the information with traditional computer algorithms.
