Marketing Rounds – Where are the Floaters?

January 27, 2016

If you were wondering where the oil & gas industry stores floaters in the off season, wonder no more.

These were the entries to the UTP OGCE competition, and they were from secondary schools. Us jaded old timers could do well to learn from the young ‘uns. Give some love to your local school, whether monetary, time or engaging the minds of that generation.

IEM – Visit to Technical Visit to Centre Of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) And Offshore Engineering Centre Of Universiti Teknologi Petronas

April 14, 2015

My technical division is organising a trip to the wilds of Tronoh on the 24th April, 2015. It’s worth 4.5 CPD points. Go.

The Centre of Research in EOR was established in Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) in year 2006 to promote excellence in EOR research that mostly addresses the needs of industry and to manage laboratory services. Research in the area has continuously expanded at UTP since 2006. Most EOR research projects are conducted by the petroleum engineering staff and the topics are mostly conventional topics such as subsurface fluid flow, rock fluid interactions etc.  In addition, there is an increasing interest from non-petroleum engineering researching EOR chemicals, application of waves, advanced materials among others.
