How are digital technologies impacting the way a well is drilled? Part 2

Now let’s review the opposite scenario, a development project of horizontal wells with enormous data sets of similar offset wells where the efficiencies are already very high. (For part 1, click here) Take North America’s Permian Basin as a good example. Can the cost still be reduced?   YES! The cost can be reduced by..


How are digital technologies impacting the way a well is drilled? Part 1

Digital technologies are helping the customers in an unbeatable way to develop a project from the conceptualization stage up to the evaluation phase once the job is completed. This approach is affecting the entire upstream production cycle.  From the customer’s perspective, more accuracy on the planned time frame and costs, can be achieved through big..


Is everything a computer?

From the cars we drive, to the movies we watch, to our security systems and wearables. Tech is in everything, and we’ve become accustomed to seeing computers EVERYWHERE. That’s what drives 16-year-old Dame Allan’s School student, Ben Needham, to dive head first into computer science. Currently in Sixth Form, Ben is studying A-level mathematics, further..


Building an Inclusive Workforce

If people have the same mindset, there is no progress. That’s just a fact – you reach a stand still and fail to move forward. However, coexisting with people that push back, is not easy.  When you’re surrounded by different people, it can create conflict. What most people fail to understand is that conflicting perspectives..


A Modern Day Programmer

C++, Java, Python, Scala….programming is about languages, yes, but it involves so much more. A good programmer needs a complete toolset: from data structure, algorithms and computer networking to software development kits, package managers, editors like Eclipse, operating systems like UNIX and so on. But, what does ‘thinking like a programmer’ really entail?  According to..

Women in Engineering

A Growing Arena In spite of historically being underrepresented in STEM areas, such as engineering, women are making huge strides to close these gap. This imbalance has, more often than not, told a story – one that doesn’t capture the whole picture. Once times started to change and STEM fields became more inclusive, women started..
