World’s largest jack-up rig in Norway named Maersk Interceptor.

World’s largest jack-up rig in Norway named Maersk Interceptor.

Danish company Maersk Drilling presented its new jack-up rig in the Norwegian Port Mekjarvik. It was named “Mearsk Intercetor” during ceremony held at DMC Marine Partners yard in Mekjarvik by Mrs. Anita Utseth Senior Vice President in Det norske oljselskab ASA (The Norwegian Oil Company ASA).

Mearsk Interceptor is the second of four jack-up rigs which will be placed in The Norwegian North Sea for drilling the Ivar Aasen in December this year. The contract with Det norske includes two one-year options. The total investment is estimated to cost 2,6 bn USD.

The first jack-up rig was named Maersk Intrepid and, as the second one, have been delivered from the Keppel FELS shipyard, Singapore. Same legs are 678 ft long and allow drilling on waters with maximum depth of492 ft. Installation can accommodate around 150 people.

“On behalf of the Himpunan Mahasiswa Teknik Kimia (HMTK) , and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Undip Student Chapter Section and professional organizing committee, it is my greatest pleasure to invite all of you to compete in our National Competition, Lomba Penelitian Mahasiswa Teknik Kimia Indonesia 2014 (LPMTKI 2014) under the theme “ Inovasi Pengembangan Ilmu Pengetahuan dan Teknologi Proses Kimia Menuju Indonesia Mandiri Energi” as a spectacular event this year.
From that theme, it is expected that the application of chemical engineering can be applied in the community and Worldwide. Hopefully this competition could establish a new culture among the students of Chemical Engineering in Indonesia
We encourage students, especially undergraduate from Chemical Engineering in Indonesia to participate in our competition. This competition aims to enhance student creativity in research based on innovative chemicals process to tackle the problems in any field of application. Creativity means process of producing something that is both original and worthwhile, while Creating Innovative means research a product or new processes that can solve the current problems. This event is held because we need a program to improve the quality of research in Indonesia in order to bring innovative research work and benefit the people of Indonesia.”

BIG DATA: Think Big CEE Congress

BIG DATA: Think Big CEE Congress

BIG DATA: Think Big CEE Congress
4 – 5 listopada 2014 r., Hotel Westin w Warszawie

BIG DATA: Think Big CEE Congress jest jedynym międzysektorowym spotkaniem decydentów z branż: finansowej, telekomunikacyjnej, medialnej, IT, energetycznej,
e-commerce i innych. Stanowi neutralną platformę do dyskusji, wymiany poglądów i doświadczeń, jest także doskonałą okazją do nawiązania i zacieśnienia relacji biznesowych.

600x60

Zakres tematyczny Kongresu współtworzony jest przez Radę Programową, której przewodzi Maciej Witucki. Skupia ona prezesów największych firm z powyższych sektorów, którzy zainteresowani są tematyką wykorzystania Big Data, przedstawicieli administracji i organizacji związanych z branżą. Kreowana przez Radę tematyka wydarzenia gwarantuje najwyższy poziom merytoryczny podejmowanych podczas kongresu dyskusji.

Ideą Kongresu jest pokazanie szans i zagrożeń, możliwości i obaw, jak również obecnych
i planowanych uwarunkować prawnych, które determinować będą działania firm w przyszłości. Wydarzenie staje się unikatowe dzięki biznesowemu podejściu do poruszanych zagadnień, a także obecności Gości zagranicznych, którzy swoją wiedzą i doświadczeniem wzbogacą dyskusję, pokazując praktyczne przykłady wdrożeń z zachodnich rynków.
Główne obszary tematyczne:
• Szanse i zagrożenia dla finalnych konsumentów
• Prawo i regulacje a przetwarzanie danych
• Praktyczne przykłady wdrożeń
• Monetyzacja Big Data
• Międzysektorowa wymiana danych
Wśród prelegentów m.in.:
• Stephen Brobst, Chief Technology Officer for Teradata Corporation
• Mike Turner, Director Center of Excellence, SAS Institute
• Wojciech Rafał Wiewiórowski, Główny Inspektor Ochrony Danych Osobowych

Production profile: coalbed methane

Production profile: coalbed methane

CBM is an unconventional source of natural gas produced from coal seams. Gas is often dissolved in naturally occurring groundwater. CBM wells are typically less than 1000 meters total depth. In this article I will try to introduce you some numbers connected with CBM.
Extraction of coalbed methane grew out of venting methane from coal seams. Some coal seams have been noticed as dangerous and filled with gas so as a safety measure, wells were drilled from the surface into the seams to drive off the methane before mining. Typical CBM wells are drilled quickly. Often a well can be drilled and completed in less than 48 hours. Drilling penetration rates and final well construction details can vary greatly between different CBM fields.

To extract methane wells are drilled into coal seams and groundwater is pumped out, which is necessary as the water removal reduces the pressure and allows methane release from the coal. Coal seams are traditionally accessed using a single vertical well. Extracting the gas begins with drilling well 300-1500 meters deep. The top section of the well is cased with steel and cement to prevent the loss of water on any aquifers. The coal seams are than stimulated to open the pores within the coal. This releases the pressure within the coalbed and allows the gas and water to flow into the well. The coal resource remains undamaged. The gas and water rise to the surface through separate pipes. The water is transported through underground pipes to a container for reduce and recycling. The gas is piped to processing facility to be compressed and dehydrated.
Coalbed Methane Drilling is performed with rotary and core drilling equipment. Rotary rigs are used to drill and set casing for production wells, and, along with core drills, are used to drill long directionally-drilled holes into coal seams from which coal-bed methane gas is extracted. Due to the occurrence of gas, blow-out preventers are often needed.

WORLD RESERVES

Coalbed methane as a natural gas resource was approved by US government in late 1970’s. The US Department of Energy funded researches in the area of unconventional gas sources, including coalbed methane. Estimated reserves are about 7500 trillion cubic feet globally with more than 700 tr. cubic feet in the US alone.
CBM extraction in US is currently expanding in the northeast Wyoming and southeast Montana, 7% of the natural gas production comes from CBM extraction. According to the CBM Association of Alabama 13% of the land in 48 United States has coal under it and large part of this coal contains methane. Most CBM production came from the Rocky Mountain states of Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico.
In Australia, commercial CBM extraction was started in 1996 in the Bowen Basin, Queensland. As of 2013, coal seam gas made up about ten percent of Australia’s gas production. According to australianminesatlas.gov.au reserves are estimated to 33 trillion cubic feet. as of January 2012.
In Canada, British Columbia have approximately 90 trillion cubic feet of coalbed methane. The only province with commercial coalbed methane wells is Alberta.
Kazakhstan could witness the development of a large coalbed methane (CBM) sector over the coming decades, according to industry professionals. Preliminary research suggests there may be as much as 900 billion m3 of gas in Kazakhstan’s main coalfields – 85% of all reserves in Kazakhstan.
