Addressing Marine Emissions - Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems

Feb 15 2011 - 12:00am

The global shipping industry is under increasing political pressure to reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. For several years, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been working on tightening regulations controlling air pollutant emissions from shipping – regulations in Annex VI of the Marpol Convention. IFQC invited Donald Gregory, Director of the Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems Association (EGCSA) to give an overview of the exhaust gas cleaning systems as well as developments and operating experience with them. This Webinar will provide you insight into the marine scrubber technology and help you understand what role it will play meeting the future marine challenges - perfect also for busy executives who do not have time to follow developments on a daily basis! The following questions are answered: What technologies exist to tackle marine emissions? How do these technologies differ? What is the payback period for the scrubber systems? What are the existing challenges for these technologies? What is their operating experience? The Webinar consists of a 30 minute presentation by Gregory and a 30 minute Q&A session. More on the Annex VI of the Marpol Convention: A revised Annex VI was formally approved by IMO in October 2008, and entered into force on July 1, 2010. Its main changes are tighter controls on sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions (via fuel sulfur limits), and on nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. The first impact is that the sulfur limit for marine fuels used in designated SOx Emission Control Areas (ECAs) was lowered to 1.00 wt% July 2010. Beyond 2010, Annex VI will further tighten sulfur limits both globally and in SOx ECAs. In all cases, abatement measures (such as exhaust gas scrubbing) are permitted as an alternative to using compliant fuels. More on the EGCSA: Member companies of the EGCSA are involved in the development, design and final installed configuration and design approval and acceptance of turnkey exhaust gas cleaning systems to meet the current and future emissions regulations of IMO and where applicable additional regulations introduced by regional and national authorities.

Unlocking The Utica: The Next Big Northeast Shale Play?

Jul 19 2011 - 12:00am

Overview: The Ordovician Utica shale is an international shale play, stretching from Quebec, Canada, down in the U.S. portion of the great Appalachian Basin. The Utica offers strong attractions: excellent rock properties, low acreage costs, and proximity to premium gas markets. This emerging play is on the cusp of exploration, with operators beginning to probe its potential in earnest. Here, in the webinar “Unlocking the Utica: The Next Big Northeast Shale Play?” you will hear the latest insights on this fascinating reservoir from two industry experts. The 55-minute webinar will include a live Q&A moderated by Peggy Williams, Director of Unconventional Resources, Hart Energy.

Argentina’s Neuquén Basin: A World Hotspot For Unconventional Resources

Jul 14 2011 - 12:00am

Argentina’s Neuquén Basin holds a wealth of tight gas and shale reservoirs, and companies are launching drilling programs to assess these resources. Explorers are targeting the thick and rich Vaca Muerta and Los Molles shales, two well-known, world-class source rocks that are receiving new attention. A discovery by Repsol YPF in the oil-prone portion of the Vaca Muerta could hold 150 million barrels of recoverable oil, and the company has already kicked off a major development project. Operators are also testing unconventional gas prospects in both shales, and in tight-gas sands. In addition to its attractive geology, the Neuquén Basin has other attributes that favor unconventional development. It has a long history of oil and gas operations, is home to an established, thriving service sector, and has excellent access to markets.

DUO 2011 - California’s Unconventional Oil Bounty: The Monterey And Kreyenhagen Shales

May 24 2011 - 12:00am


Oil-rich California offers several intriguing resource plays, including the world-class Monterey and the Kreyenhagen shales. In this webinar, two independents share their results of work to date and their plans for the future in these oil-prone plays in the Golden State.

The San Joaquin Basin's Monterey and Kreyenhagen shales are the focus of Zodiac Exploration. The basin offers plenty of data, large resource targets, and excellent reservoir potential. Zodiac entered the basin in 2009 and has expanded its portfolio to 86,221 net acres. The company has been gathering data and delineating and derisking the Monterey and Kreyenhagen plays. Zodiac is currently delving into the data to rank and assess its primary prospects. Within one or two years, the company plans to drill between four and nine vertical and one to 10 horizontal wells.

Similarly, Denver-based Venoco Inc. has had its eye on California's unconventional potential. The company has a varying set of prospects all across the state, and has accumulated 200,000 acres prospective for the Monterey, 150,000 of which are onshore. Last year, Venoco drilled test wells across its position. It has drawn the conclusion that vertical wells are currently the most effective approach to exploiting the Monterey, and it is in the midst of a major Monterey effort.

Vitruvian Exploration is another private independent active in the Mississippi Lime. It notes that the outstanding economics are also due to favorable lease terms, high-quality oil, readily available water and water disposal formations. Vitruvian holds 120,000 net acres in the area west of the Nemaha uplift and 80,000 acres east of the Nemaha uplift.
