Prescriptive Maintenance: Transforming Asset Performance Management
18 March 2020

Prescriptive maintenance technology is changing how companies manage asset downtime. With more advance warning of equipment failures comes additional opportunity to mitigate the negative impact of shutdowns.

In this new white paper discover how prescriptive maintenance powered by AI and machine learning can help predict equipment breakdowns up to months in advance, automate data collection, cleansing and analysis and quickly scale across similar assets enterprise-wide.

Learn how companies have successfully implemented these solutions and the quantitative benefits achieved.

Maximize Safety, Sustainability and Productivity by Turning Unplanned Downtime Into Planned Downtime
13 March 2020

Unplanned downtime has wide-ranging impacts that affect more than just a plant’s productivity and profitability. Forced shutdowns also have a major impact on plant and personnel safety, as well as greenhouse gas emissions and environmental compliance. But what if you could actually plan for downtime? In this paper, learn how advances in machine learning and predictive analytics are eliminating the surprise of unplanned downtime.

Download this paper to discover how planned downtime enables companies to:

  • Minimize the most dangerous conditions
  • Reduce the amount of gases released into the environment
  • Improve productivity and profitability.

The Emerging Price Offerings from Second Wave U.S LNG Projects: Perspectives from Sellers and Buyers
17 September 2019
With the LNG market in a state of rapid transition, the future is shrouded in considerable uncertainty, but the expectation is that commoditization and liquidity will continue to grow as the industry matures – and that both firstwave and second-wave U.S. LNG export projects will help drive these trends. So, how much capacity can we realistically expect from the second wave? Download this 20-page report for more insight into the future of the LNG Market.
Competition, Commoditisation & Consolidation
17 September 2019
How will M&A activity re-shape the fast-growing LNG business? This report sets out to answer the question: “What might the LNG industry look like in five years and ten years from now?” In particular, how is it likely to be re-shaped by corporate activity – such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) – as the growing number of players seek to maximise value by adapting to the forces re-shaping the industry? These forces can be grouped into three categories: competition, commoditisation and consolidation
Floating Innovation
5 August 2019
The use of floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs) has continued into the first quarter of 2019 – but how long this wave of demand lasts will depend on the speed of innovation in the sector. The transition from oil and gas to renewables, as well as the fast development of shale in the US, may mean that the cost pressure on oil will not ease in the short to medium term. The ability of FPSOs to achieve cost reductions will therefore be critical to the success or viability of certain fields. The last 30 FPSO-based projects’ final investment decisions (FIDs) announced included 14 units with a breakeven below $50/bl, 15 units between $50/bl and $70/bl and three units in excess of $70/bl.
Decarbonisation solutions for Oil and Gas Companies
25 March 2020

The oil and gas sector is under ever-increasing pressure to reduce the carbon intensity of the processes and operations involved in production and distribution. The webcast will take a close look at energy efficiency improvement and decarbonisation solutions within the sector, as it contributes to the mitigation of global warming, with a focus on creating reliable and clean energy systems.

Join the experts as they discuss:

• How waste-energy recovery boosts sustainability for manufacturers

• Financing projects and expected rates of return

• Case studies of Turboden projects

Asia's Natural Gas Midstream in Focus
12 February 2020

Asia drives global LNG demand. Robust demand for cleaner-burning fuel in Asian countries amid rapid population growth, improvements to living standards, and general economic advancement provide a context for sustained LNG import capacity investment.

This webcast describes the key drivers, challenges, and impacts of Asian LNG capacity investment to 2025 and an examination of the implications for a variety of far-reaching factors. We look at the effects of potential oil-linked vs. hub-based pricing in the Asian project economics context, highlight critical factors supporting or inhibiting project progression, and provide a five-year outlook on anticipated capacity expansion for key Asian LNG import nations, including China, Japan, India, and South Korea.

Meeting Europe’s Natural Gas Infrastructure Challenge: Opportunities and Outlook 2020
5 December 2019

In this webcast, the Energy Web Atlas Market Analyst for Global Data Solutions will examine the implications for managing the supply of natural gas through Europe to consumers. He will discuss the potential of capital investments and identify areas where a conflux of issues may lead to a gas transmission system shortfall. He will compare regional natural gas transmission capacity and import facility capacities to the prospects of domestic supply and growing demand centers. And finally, he will look at areas that require additional investment by midstream operators and the implications for the broader gas dynamics of Europe.

Waves of Change: Charting the Energy Future
28 November 2019

For nearly forty years, CERAWeek has provided an integrated framework for understanding what’s ahead for global energy markets, geopolitics, and technology. Some of the greatest minds from across the energy spectrum gather to share insight on the nature and pace of change shaping the future of the energy realm. Over 5,500 delegates from more than 85 countries participated in CERAWeek 2019.

This year’s theme: Waves of Change: Charting the Energy Future has special resonance in the oil and gas industries as we experience an unprecedented transformation of the global energy system. Strategic confrontations and trade wars; energy demands in a world of slower growth; disruptive technologies, digitalization, clean tech and new energy pathways; globalization of natural gas and the new wave of LNG; inter-fuel competitions; and climate concerns are forcing decisions and policy change. How will you navigate these changes?

Gain insights, engage with industry experts and peers at the world’s premier energy conference 9-13 March 2020 in Houston. Find a diversity of perspective and experiences at CERAWeek 2020.
