This month’s issue of Petroleum Review looks at the potential role that technology might play in helping the oil and gas sector meet the skills gap and outlines some of the attractions of a career in this sector.We also provide an overview of some of the latest decommissioning developments in the No...Availability: Online|In the libraryRecord type: Issue
Latest developments in technology improve SCADA systems. G.E. Congram. Pipeline Gas J., February 1995, 222(2), 14--22.
New technologies available to pipeline operating companies are reviewed. Upgrading the performance of SCADA control systems by incorporating new open systems is described and benefits are discussed. Key components of an open system are local area networks, data exchanges with external computers, and...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
IT Upstream: An industry unleashed by technology. Tony Wood. Petroleum Review December 2002 P. 22-25
Tony Wood reports on how aligning information technology and data management strategies with business needs is now more critical than ever.Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Like all human endeavours, upstream E&P operators, generally turn to technology to solve new and chronic problems. However, are technology providers reaching the mark? Here, Honeywell's John Colpo, Strategy Leader for Oil and Gas Industry, argues that technology providers need to consolidate further...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Petrobras deepwater technology update. M. Assayag, J. Formigi, and S. Assayag. Pipeline Gas Ind. Deepwater Technol. Supplement, August 1998, 81(8), 23--34 (7 pages).
Recent important oil strikes by Petrobras in deep water off Brazil are reviewed. These are at water depths of 400 to 1000 m and some exceed 1000 m. Technical requirements for deep water drilling in the Campos Basin are reviewed. Floating production units and projects under development are summarized...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Multilateral well design. Part 1. Multilateral technology gains broader acceptance. M.R. Chambers. OGJ, 2 November 1998, 96(44), 47, 48, 51, 52.
The implementation of multiple well bores, or multiple horizontal wells exiting a single well bore, has gained wider acceptance in the oil industry, particularly from the reservoir-management point of view. Multilateral history and technology are discussed and the reasons for drilling multilaterals ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Russian drilling technologies. Conclusion. Russia shares technical know-how with US. D.E. Gaddy. OGJ, 8 March 1999, 97(10), 51, 52, 54--56.
Consideration is given to two technologies which should hold promise for future technology-transer programmes. Electric downhole motors and their advantages over conventional mud motors and turbodrills are examined. Hydraulic independence, diagnostics and control, information technology, design and ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Introduction of game-changing drilling technology. Anon. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 28, 33. (Synopsis SPE paper 37635).

IT, supply chain: Going digital - more process than technology driven. Brian Davis. Petroleum Review April 2005, P. 38-40
The rationale behind ‘digital business’ both upstream and downstream is on business process optimisation throughout the supply chain rather than technology drive. As two of the oil majors explain, the real benefits of e-business and real-time data management come from a more focused approach to long...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
