Meeting the Challenges of Effective Occurrence Investigations
November 5, 2014 at 9:30 AM EST, 8:30 AM CST, 7:30 AM MST, 6:30 AM PST
(90 minutes)
 
Occurrences (accidents and incidents), whether they take place in the transportation industry, health care settings or in highly industrialized plants, occur regularly and all too frequently, sometimes with fatal and disastrous results. Occurrences place a great burden on organizations, their workers, and at times the general public. They are very costly both in personal and financial terms, as are the investigations into the causes of these occurrences in terms of time and money.

Drawing on hard experience gained by conducting systematic safety investigations in a variety of industrial settings, the webinar will address the challenges organizations face when confronted by the need to conduct a safety investigation.
Unlocking Ten Trillion Barrels of Global Oil Shale Resources; The State of the Industry - AM
November 11, 2014 at 10:00 AM EST, 9:00 AM CST, 8:00 AM MST, 7:00 AM PST
(60 minutes)
 
The development of global oil shale resources has regained significant attention around the world in the past few years. Several factors have contributed to this, including high oil prices, emerging recovery technologies, increasing world demand for liquid hydrocarbons, and the continued decline in U.S. conventional oil production.

A comprehensive analysis has been completed to address these issues and assess the commercial viability of this resource in the United States and around the world.
Unlocking Ten Trillion Barrels of Global Oil Shale Resources; The State of the Industry - PM

Human Factors in Drilling: Are there practical tools for use at the wellsite?
November 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM EST, 8:30 AM CST, 7:30 AM MST, 6:30 AM PST
(90 minutes)
 
Research sponsored by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers and others has suggested that creating a sense of ‘chronic unease’ in relation to barrier integrity and operation of safety-critical systems, combined with understanding of the psychological issues that create error-producing conditions, will strengthen defenses against major accidents occurring. The question remains as to the best way to embed the necessary skills through teaching, coaching, and assessment and their integration into routine working practices.

The purpose of the webinar is to present the concept of Threat and Error Management to the audience, to engage with them and to seek their feedback as to whether this approach is viable in today’s operational climate. If not, then what?
Facility Operability: Designing Operable Facilities
November 18, 2014 at 12:30 PM EST, 11:30 AM CST, 10:30 AM MST, 9:30 AM PST
(90 minutes)
 
You may not be able to make it to the presentation in Houston, TX, but there's no reason we can't bring it to you. By registering for this session, you can listen to the speaker live and watch the slides broadcast from the presentation without leaving your desk...all for FREE.

The Oil & Gas industry has been designing and constructing facilities for decades, and they have all been started up and operated successfully. Why do we need to pay special attention to “Facility Operability?”

The truth is that facility start-ups have been less than efficient and have resulted in months of delay before reaching nameplate rated performance. When planned and executed correctly, a comprehensive Facility Operability program should not result in added facility costs or delayed project schedule.

In this presentation the speaker will share the things of primary importance with regard to ”Facility Operability” ie. the experiences and learnings of almost 10 years of working with these issues. This presentation is intended to be an interactive session where the audience will share experiences and ask plenty of questions.
Progressing Cavity Pumping (PCP)

Robotic Drilling Operations
November 19, 2014 at 9:30 AM EST, 8:30 AM CST, 7:30 AM MST, 6:30 AM PST
(90 minutes)
 
Since 2007, Robotic Drilling Systems AS (RDS) has developed robotic technology for an unmanned drill floor. This has included the development of a new generation of pipe handlers, iron roughnecks, elevators, slips, control systems and man-machine interfaces, and a new machine: the drill floor robot.

RDS will present the results and status of its research and development program, and discuss how the robotic drill floor will be introduced in the industry.
Emerging Approaches to Fatigue Risk Management
December 10, 2014 at 9:30 AM EST, 8:30 AM CST, 7:30 AM MST, 6:30 AM PST
(90 minutes)
 
This web event includes presentations from two speakers on the topic.

Dr. Mollicone will give an overview of biological factors that contribute to fatigue in a context relevant to the oil and gas industry. He will discuss leading tools to objectively quantify fatigue-related performance deficits and will demonstrate the brief 3-minute Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT).

In the last ten years three new streams of R&D have upset the 100 year status quo of how we view light at night. Dr. Martin Moore-Ede will discuss the progress of this R&D, and some innovative new approaches to managing these risks and avoiding an LED-induced shift worker health epidemic.
