< Strategies For Building & Designing Modern State-Of-The-Art, Fast, Efficient & 'Green' Facilities, Focusing On The Latest Modular Concepts & Automation Systems >

8:15 The 5th Annual Cost-Effective Well Site Facilities Onshore 2018 opens with the Chair's Opening Remarks

MAINTAIN FACILITIES OPTIMIZATION & MAKE CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENTS WHILE FOCUSING ON GROWTH THAT COMES WITH >$70 OIL

Over the next five years, 60% of global Oil production growth will come from United States. The Permian Basin Will Fuel 80% Of That Growth

Activity is increasing; Brent & WTI is speculated to reach $80. US operators realize they have to plan facilities a lot better to seamlessly execute production plans over the next five years. Everything is getting bigger - larger well pads, larger vessels, sophisticated gathering systems - and automation on well site facilities is a lot more sophisticated that it has ever been. While the price environment is significantly positive, operators are 'cautiously optimistic', and are raising a number of crucial questions:

  • How can operating companies maintain the 'efficiency improvemen t' and 'cost-optimization ' focus through this 'drill faster ' environment?
  • How can operators make continual improvements in facilities design, safety and water management without interfering with production growth?
  • How can E&Ps continue to scale up given the resources they have, while navigating the changing regulatory environment?

With operators in agreement that the only way to look at efficiency is by examining facility cost, facility management and production optimization, this opening panel discussion, kicking off at 8:40am, sets the foundation for the 2018 conference, designed with a view to help operators and vendors plan better and...

  • Examine strategies to design facilities that are optimized from a project management, efficiency and production perspective
  • Discuss new ways to build facilities where the cost of remediation and reclamation are minimized
  • Examine step changes in performance, cost reduction and efficiency improvement
  • Understand why some operators are building DUC inventory in some locations and others to establish requirements for new facilities

DESIGN & BUILD MODERN STATE-OF-THE-ART 'GREEN' FACILITIES WITH EFFICIENT ENVIRONMENTAL & EMISSION CONTROLS

For the North American Oil & Gas industry, Air Emissions is now a major risk and liability concern. From a compliance standpoint, E&Ps are seeing bigger challenges, and there is confusion between what each state, what the federal government and what local governments consider acceptable levels of fugitive emissions. Managing compliance issues has become a huge effort.

''It Is Now Crucial For Regulatory Compliance Conversations To Be Made Part Of Project Management And Facilities Development Plans''
