Like a lot of other oil producers, Ecuador is seeing flagging levels of output. One field holds promise to reverse that, but its development has become controversial. In this week’s Oilgram News column, At the Wellhead, Quito correspondent Stephan Kuffner discusses the challenges facing the field’s development.——————————Ecuador’s president Rafael Correa once chastised oil officials that his “Citizens’ Revolution is characterized by doing things extraordinarily well and extraordinarily fast.” No case highlights the gap bet

Certainly when considering issues of safety, the human costs of injuries and fatalities pile far higher than any monetary value in medical expenses or legal settlements can state. But for any company, safety is also a matter of economics; not just in protecting its employees, but in protecting its property as well.Capital losses from equipment theft and vandalism affect an operator’s bottom line in ways they often don’t anticipate. Though long term operations in the coal mining industry seem firmly on top of security issues, the newest operations of the oil and gas play in North Dakota are

Eni is two-for-two this week.Yesterday, I reported that Eni made a significant oil discovery offshore Angola in Block 15/06. Today, Eni announced another significant oil discovery- this one off Ecuador at the Oglan-2 exploration well located in Block 10, approximately 161 miles southeast of Quito.The well was drilled to a TD of 6,450 feet and encountered a 236 foot net crude oil column. During a production test, constrained by surface facilities, the well flowed at 1,100 bopd. The data acquired in Oglan well indicate a production capacity per well up to 2,000 bopd.

Hi all,I am interested in hearing from Oilpro members on networking groups for IT professionals or general/open networking groups here in the Houston area. Thanks for your help.
Just posted a blog on OilPro about the results COSL (China Oilfield Services) found by retooling our product suite adding value through bundling integrated services to our customer base. In the report I found some outstanding results and increased profitability, but we operate mostly in the eastern hemisphere. However, from Western prospective, what are the downsides to bundling all the drilling services into a single value proposition? Here we offer the customer the whole enchilada from geophysical through completion services. Sure its a tougher sale but we're working on that. I am curious

I’ve been working in the oil industry for five or six years as a heat engineer. In preparation for graduation as a chemical (petrochemical) process engineer, I recently chose the main theme of my research and study: the future of technology in oil and gas treatment. For example, I am looking for information about super effective catalysts for catalyst cracking, or the deepest treatment for bitumen, heavy oil, etc.Thanks a lot for your answers.

Do HR practitioners in oil and gas take any responsibility for educating their expat and offshore workers on personal wealth management? Seems to me they are the ones most exposed to mis-selling.

Oil and Gas Professionals.I worked in the industry on the Marcellus Shale in Wellsboro PA for a few years in college. I was fascinated by what I experienced even though I only experienced a very small portion of the industry. I am a financial planner now, but I am posting here to try and learn more about the industry as a whole. I want to learn what makes it so different from other industries and understand the things that oil pros deal with that others don't. **What is a workday in your O&G life like?** I hope to hear from people that work in all sorts of roles in the O&G industry.

The goal of bonding is to ensure that all companies performing oil and gas activities under the jurisdiction of BOEM provide adequate financial resources to protect the U.S. Government from incurring any financial loss. Each offshore lease is reviewed to ensure the working interest owners have adequate financial coverage to provide for the performance of all lease obligations. The U.S. Government requires financial security to protect itself when an operator and/or the lessees are unable to fulfill their requirements on: rent, royalties, environmental damage, cleanup and restoration activiti

I'm hearing that a number of medium-sized subsea cable firms based in America are being targeted by an as-yet-unknown Asian energy firm as part of their expansion out of oil and gas. This could potentially lead to a lot of new jobs in both America and (I would guess) China!Has anyone else heard anything on this? I'm fully supportive of any deal that creates new jobs but am wondering if it is a rumour 'doing the rounds' elsewhere. This comes from an industry analyst in Hong Kong whom I have good reason to trust, but I'd like it confirmed from other sources before I start considering how this c

For purposes of this question, I'm defining short-term incentives as compensation for completing short-term goals (performance period of one year of less).
