Every oil and gas industry player competes for finite resources in hydrocarbon reserves, market access, technology innovation, customer relationships, and human talent. Most companies are committed to accelerating the transformation of economic growth mode, improving the self-innovation capacity, establishing long-efficient mechanism of safety, environmental protection and energy conservation and creating a harmonious enterprise, in order to transform themselves to be international, national or independent energy company with strong competitiveness. Companies can position themselves either as a cost- and efficiency-driven company, or as a technology-driven company-or both provided they have different organizations managing the two distinct options. The industry needs new performance metrics to reflect company performance vis a vis the variety of energy industry challenges.
This highly interactive 3 day course looks at the strategies of a total of 12 International, National and Independent oil and gas companies. Delegates are required compare and contrast the strategies for the three different groups before de-constructing the strategies looking for consistent themes and topics.
The course aim is to develop a good understanding of the broader industry strategies in the current landscape and to use this understanding to be in a position to make recommendations on the areas the company should be operating in, in order to meet its aims and objectives.
Session 1: Current Industry Structure
Session 2: Challenges
Day 1 Workshops:
Session 3: How do Oil and Gas Companies Define Themselves?
Session 4: Key Industry Strategies
Day 2 Workshops
Session 5: Measuring Performance
Session 6: Strategies to Remain Competitive
Session 7: Your 90 day plan
Day 3 workshops
The course dissects and analyses the corporate strategy from a total of 12 different oil and gas companies and is designed for those involved in either a planning or strategy role or for general managers requiring an overview of the company direction and strategy options such as:
President, Zick Technologies (Since 10/93).
Petroleum engineering consulting and software development, specializing in the area of reservoir fluid phase behavior modeling. References available on request. Key achievements:
-Developed numerous equation-of-state and black-oil fluid characterizations for various major oil companies and as a sub-contractor for Pera A/S.
-Recommended phase behavior experimentation and modeling guidelines for several major oil companies.
-Wrote PhazeComp, a new, state-of-the-art program from Zick Technologies for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Wrote Streamz, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for translating, manipulating, and managing vast quantities of fluid stream information.
-Designed and helped write Pipe-It, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for managing and manipulating petroleum resources, processes, and projects.
-Taught numerous industry courses on phase behavior, equations of state, reservoir fluid characterization, and miscible gas injection processes.
-Designed and helped implement a new set of equation-of-state routines for the in-house reservoir simulator of a major oil company.
-Advised the architects of a major commercial reservoir simulator on ways to significantly improve their equation-of-state routines.
Director of Research, Reservoir Simulation Research Corporation (6/91–10/93).
Responsible for the research and development of more efficient, accurate, and reliable techniques for modeling reservoir fluid phase behavior within MORE® (a fully-compositional, equation-of-state reservoir simulator). Also responsible for improving three-dimensional visualization of reservoir simulator output, and for occasional consulting work. Key achievements:
-Designed and implemented new equation-of-state solution algorithms for MORE®, improving both efficiency and robustness while using less memory.
-Developed a powerful and flexible interface between MORE® and TECPLOT™ (three-dimensional surface contouring software from AMTEC Engineering).
Senior Principal Research Engineer, ARCO Oil and Gas Company (9/83–5/91).
Developed expertise in reservoir fluid phase behavior, phase behavior modeling, compositional reservoir simulation, and relative permeability modeling. Designed and analyzed PVT experiments. Created equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterizations. Developed ARCO’s phase behavior modeling software and relative permeability modeling software. Helped develop several of ARCO’s compositional and limited compositional reservoir simulators. Key achievements:
-Discovered the true, condensing/vaporizing mechanism of oil displacement by enriched hydrocarbon gases.
-Represented ARCO on the Prudhoe Bay co-owners’ Enhanced Oil Recovery Task Force for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Designed and analyzed most of the PVT and slim-tube experiments for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Created the equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterization adopted by the operating companies for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed the miscibility pressure correlations used by the facility operators for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed EOSPHASE, a then state-of-the-art program for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Developed SLIMTUBE, a special-purpose, equation-of-state simulator for slim-tube displacements.
-Developed new, compositionally-consistent, three-phase relative permeability models for ARCO’s compositional simulators and wrote data-fitting software for those models.
-Developed the phase behavior and relative permeability routines for a new, limited compositional reservoir simulator and assisted on other aspects of it.
-Continually added improvements to various in-house reservoir simulators.
-Regularly taught in-house courses on the phase behavior of miscible gas displacement processes.
