Oil and gas in the capitals

A recent International Monetary Fund (IMF) report estimates that in 2017, global fossil fuel subsidies totaled $5.2 trillion. This is 6.3% of world GDP and, if true, seriously distorts energy and economic markets, and has ominous environmental implications. However, the salient question is whether the IMF estimate makes any sense. The answer is no—rather, it is misguided to the point of absurdity.

The path to oilfield efficiency is digital

Operators have a singular vision for their business: Safely producing more barrels at a lower cost, despite increasingly challenging operating environments and constant fluctuations in economic cycles. In response, the oil and gas industry has devised innovations across each phase of the well lifecycle—exploration, drilling, completion and production—to extract hydrocarbons efficiently and cost-effectively. For example, in the past, operators have leveraged innovations in exploration, drilling and completions to drill more wells faster and with greater accuracy, add more fracture stages per well, and pump more proppant per stage to boost production. However, this solution has plateaued in terms of efficiency and overall productivity. New, innovative completion designs—including intelligent completions—have helped to foster a production renaissance in the U.S., but unless a major step-change in technology occurs, the benefits yielded from these solutions have plateaued, as well. With no major technology advances introduced since the advent of artificial lift, the production phase is the next frontier for realizing significant efficiency gains and cost reductions. Leading the way is the increasing adoption of technologies that incorporate components of Industry 4.0.
