Oil and Gas industry news.
Let's say I have an oil reservoir being waterflooded with a matrix of weakly consolidated sand. Now let's say I make the drawdown pressure too high and I sand up my wellbore and wreck my near wellbore permeability (possibly fines migration as well?). If I clean out my wellbore with coil, is there any frac I can pump that would bypass the damage of the sand invasion and keep the sand from invading my wellbore. I imagine the tail end of the frac would have a quick incremental ramp up of frac sand size to form a "gravel pack" behind pipe.

This might be a silly question that's too complicated. I doubt it has a great answer, but I'm just wondering how you would approach the problem.
But I'm wondering how to think about what happens when a new source goes into production, a new pipeline gets built, or a new terminal/refinery/whatever infrastructure gets built, or whatever.
Does it only really have an impact once the project is up and running? Or like does it affect market expectations and affect prices right away? Something else?
So I live in west Texas and the guy across from me told me they are putting a compressor station across from my south of my house across the road .2 miles. My only concern is smell and how loud it’s going to be. I myself work in oil and gas so I know how loud these can be. We live on a county road in the middle of no where. Are we entitled to ask any questions or talk about concerns to anyone I know it’s their land and can do what they will but wondering if there is anything we can do to talk about the noise. Any info is greatly appreciated!
As oil activities encroach on sacred natural sites, a small Ugandan community feels besieged
I am 25M height 174cm and weighs 115kg. Yes I am so over weight, when I begin my career thet time I had lost 20 kgs by following strict diet and doing exercises.
But my current job i am always sitting more than 9hrs and no proper diet and exercices.
My doubt is being over weight is that not good for a career in O&G other than health ?
I applied for a refinery that says you will have to be clean shaven to work at the refinery. How do Muslims deal with this rule?
I interviewed at one of the big oil companies in Houston about 11 days ago. I thought it went very well. I haven’t heard back anything, there is also no response to my follow-up email asking them about when I can expect to hear back.
Can anyone tell me what the the decision making process is after an interview? Why would they not even respond to my email, isn’t it basic courtesy? Any insights would be really appreciated.
I though there was something like Rig Zone who published worldwide reports on rigs, owners, types, specs, and availability.
Anything like that ring a bell to anyone? If so, do you know the name of the organization?
Why are gas prices rising? Experts point to extreme heat and oil production cuts
Drivers are in for another headache at the pump as U.S. gas prices continue to rise.
The national average for gas prices stood at about $3.78 a gallon on Tuesday — about 25 cents higher than that seen one month ago, according to motor club AAA. While today's prices at the pump remain far lower than they were last year, when energy costs soared worldwide in the months following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, experts say such a jump is unusual.
“Usually it takes a hurricane to move prices that much,” said AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross, who said the rise is especially interesting as “fewer people are are fueling up” their cars this summer compared to years past.
US proposes 18% fuel economy increase for new vehicle fleet from 2027 through 2032
The U.S. government wants to raise the fuel economy of new vehicles 18% by the 2032 model year so the fleet would average about 43.5 miles per gallon in real-world driving
Is big oil moving to big lithium? As the demand for electric vehicles continues to increase alongside the demand for lithium, major US oil companies have shifted their sights to lithium, a crucial component in EV batteries. Citing lithium's natural fit for a company with a strong background in oil and gas extraction, both Chevron (CVE) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) have expressed interest in lithium production - https://thedeepdive.ca/is-big-oil-moving-to-big-lithium/
With a focus on extracting lithium from oilfield brines, Volt Lithium (VLT.v VLTLF) stands out as a trailblazer in the sector, aligning perfectly with the interests of Chevron & Exxon Mobil
While maintaining commercial viability, VLT's innovative IES-300 DLE technology boasts impressive capabilities, enabling lithium recoveries of 90% from concentrations as low as 34 mg/L as well as 97% recoveries using 120 mg/L concentrations.
VLT will initially be implementing its DLE production method at its Rainbow Lake Property where the resource report has revealed a substantial lithium resource of 4.3 million tonnes with concentrations reaching up to 121mg/L. Providing a robust foundation, VLT is preparing the Rainbow Lake PEA to be released this summer ahead of its DLE implementation in the second half of 2024.
VLT's production of lithium from oilfield brines is further strengthened by its strategic collaboration with two cutting-edge nanotechnology labs, focused on removing contaminants from oilfield brine to use in VLT's DLE technology.
This milestone accelerates the potential for domestic lithium production while offering a compelling opportunity for oil and gas operators, presenting a win-win situation by adding value to existing oilfield operations and advancing VLT's efforts toward achieving commercially and economically viable lithium extraction.

Hi everyone! I’ve recently launched project that I've been working on. It's an energy news aggregator which presently compiles news from over 130 sources and presents them in a real-time feed.
Additionally, I've incorporated a comment and news ranking system, so every user can rank and initiate discussions on any news piece. Another noteworthy feature is the ability to get a brief summary of any news using AI.
I've also recently introduced an energy units converter to allow users to switch units effortlessly without having to leave the platform.
You can check it out here! Voltsbase
Hey everybody. I am looking to get back into the oil and gas industry (background includes materials/shared services providing casing/float equipment to rigs) Also, I did logistics for control room for oil and gas until the coronavirus shutdown - then lay off occured. I "skilled up" and started doing IT....hate it and want to get back into O&G...can you provide where I can turn to really "shake the branches" to get back into it? Like a list of recruiters? I appreciate any help really. thanks.
Just curious as to the work schedule at Apache in Houston. Anyone know if they work 9-hour days?
Hello I am looking to build a Machine learning /artificial intelligence project that can help oil and gas industry in any way possible. I would love to know what are your pain points and possible problems which is somewhat of a constraint in the present industry ? Thanks in advance !
In a couple weeks I’m starting a job with a small operator. I’ll have an override on any wells we drill. Someone mentioned to me that I should set up an llc to accept the override.
Does anyone know what the benefits to this would be?
