Bouncing Back
Prateek Pandey, Rystad Energy, Singapore, considers how upstream activity in Southeast Asia could be revived after the market shocks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and details the region’s production outlook and investment focuses.

A Long-Term Preservative For The Biocide Toolbox
Jennifer Knopf and Dr. Ulf W. Naatz, Vink Chemicals, Germany, outline the importance of selecting the right biocide to help mitigate and control bio growth in subsurface, downhole, or topside oilfield operations.

Rising To The Challenge
Roar Pedersen, Andreas Fliss, and Fernando Zapata Bermudez, Archer Oiltools, Norway, explain how the development of a packer, as part of the drilling BHA, could help overcome the challenges involved with drilling depleted reservoirs.

Improving Bit By Bit
Dustin Lyles, Brandon Sheldon, and Casey Kitagawa, Taurex Drill Bits, USA, explain how the evolution towards digitalisation and analytical evaluation has impacted drill bit performance.

Seeing Past Traditional Approaches
Matt Rothnie, Vysus, UK, examines how rig selection for well decommissioning can be influenced by the development of a ‘fit for purpose’ well abandonment philosophy, alongside optimised unit selection.

Don’t Ditch The Data
Danny Constantinis, EM&I Group, Malta, explains how data analysis and AI combined with RBI strategies and robotic data collection systems could become the future of asset integrity management in the oil and gas industry.

When Man Meets Machine
Philippe Herve, SparkCognition, USA, considers the uses of AI in the upstream oil and gas sector and discusses its role in performance optimisation.

To Flow Or Not To Flow
Dr. Bruno Pinguet, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, UK, outlines how uncertainty analysis can help determine the capabilities of flow measurement systems in meeting their required performance targets.

Go With The Flow
Ken Feather, TGT Diagnostics, UAE, describes a new approach to flow diagnostics in horizontal wells.

Combatting Corrosion And Deposition
Ana Ferrer, Ph.D. USA, and Brian Bennett, ChampionX, UK, discuss the importance of combatting iron sulfide deposits and scale in flowlines and water processing systems.

Ready For Lift-Off!
Anil Wadhwa, Baker Hughes, USA, considers how digital technology could help offshore operators maximise artificial lift system performance.
