British Columbia: More Horn River gas flowing

By OGJ editors

Only two more wells are needed to validate nearly all of Quicksilver Resources Inc.’s exploratory licenses in the Horn River basin of Northeast British Columbia and convert them to 10-year development leases.

Quicksilver completed its 2010-11 winter drilling program in the basin and has now drilled a total of eight horizontal wells into the Muskwa and Klua/Evie formations, of which four are on production. The company has also drilled its first horizontal well into the shallower Exshaw oil formation and expects to complete it this summer.

The in May completed the construction and compression related to its 20-mile, 20-in. gathering line that will serve as the spine of transportation from its Horn River acreage. Completion of this line allows the company to flow gas from its four completed gas wells at unrestricted rates of more than 30 MMcfd and minimize transportation costs.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

When Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
