With decommissioning being an increasingly important field for oil and gas operators, companies have invested significantly in technologies that could reduce the time and cost of these essential operations. We explore the new systems that could improve the plug and abandonment process.
Norwegian oil and gas multinational Equinor, along with partners Var Energi and Petoro, have concluded that a downscaled ship-to-ship oil transfer terminal for the Johan Castberg field development offshore Norway would be too costly.
Researchers at the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) have developed a new technology for acoustic low-frequency oil and gas exploration in cooperation with exploration company Anchar, for use in the Arctic. The technology can capture ultrasonic noise heard in offshore oil and gas fields, which is challenging in icy fields. Umar Ali spoke to the team about the technology.
