Oil Rig Jobs -SPE forum shows advances in oil and gas division

Oil Rig Jobs -The EuALF, hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen section, took place on February 22 and 23 at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centric. The forum saw 16 companies exhibit, an increase on previous years which demonstrates the importance of this niche sector in the future of the oil and gas industry. Over 200 delegates attended over the two days.

Region vice president and managing director of Apache North Sea, Mr. Jim House, was billed as keynote speaker. Mr. House discussed the need to leverage technology, the importance of collaboration amongst operators and contractors, the benefit of sharing experience and the part that artificial lift plays in creating value for stakeholders.

Delegates had the chance to see equipment and software developments in the industry and find out more about the tools, technologies and services being adopted in the sector.

Aberdeen-based ZiLift, an internationally focused innovative artificial lift company, presented and exhibited at the EuALF. The company, established in May 2009, develops technologies and systems which they intend will form the next generation of artificial lift for the global oil field jobs. ZiLift's innovative solutions will enable down hole pumping systems to be deployed where they presently cannot.

ZiLift’s technology director Kenneth Sears gave a presentation regarding the company’s Mag Lift technology, a 1.8” diameter gas well dewatering pump for deployment through 2 3/8 inch production tubing. The electric submersible pump system (ESP) which is currently in preparation for field trials later this year will eliminate the need for a rig during pump installation and retrieval operations in the field and can be used to economically de-water deep mature gas wells and enable production by retrofit installation through small diameter production tubing.Safety jobs are great opportunities for a potential career in oil rig jobs.

ZiLift also hosted an open evening (on Wednesday 22nd) at its Broad fold Road headquarters and manufacturing facilities to showcase the company’s technologies and capabilities to the artificial lift sector.

Cledwyn Hughes, EuALF conference chairman and senior production technologist at Apache North Sea said: “The 2012 European Artificial Lift Forum was a successful and informative event which gave those who attended the opportunity to share best practice, discussing technical papers and case studies and seeing the latest technologies in action at the exhibition.

“Artificial lift plays a significant part in global oil and gas industry. The increase in delegate numbers and exhibitors at this years’ event demonstrates how crucial this particular sector is and why it is so important that new and innovative solutions continue to be developed.”

Zenith Oilfield Technology, a global provider of artificial lift services to the oil and gas industry, also presented and exhibited at the EuALF. Zenith designs, assembles and supports industry leading solutions for the gathering and analysis of down hole data and the design of completions equipment.

The Aberdeenshire-based company launched a new electrical submersible pump gauge at the forum following successful trials in the Middle East. The gauge operates even when damage occurs on the motor cable which results in a ground fault and means operators will no longer have to deal with this problem without having well data to refer to. A white paper was presented detailing the trial results.
