USA: Caterpillar to Produce More Gas Fueled Equipment and Engines

Caterpillar Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives, announced at the inaugural Natural Gas for High Horsepower Applications (HHP) Summit on Sept. 27 its intentions to go ‘all-in’ on natural gas and produce even more natural gas-fueled equipment and engines for a variety of applications.

Joel Feucht, Caterpillar’s director of gas engine strategy for the energy and power systems businesses, made the announcement during his keynote address at HHP Summit 2012, a first-ofits-kind event that examined the economic and environmental benefits of using the clean-burning, domestically abundant natural gas in fuel-hungry high horsepower applications.

We have decided to go all-in on gas,” declared Feucht during his keynote address at HHP Summit on Sept. 27. “We are going to invest because we see a global market long term. Large engines are going gas. It’s not debatable; it’s our conclusion.”

Feucht’s remarks confirmed that Caterpillar will provide natural gas fuel as an option for engines across its many high horsepower lines for marine, rail, mining, earthmoving and drilling operations. The company recently announced its first expected liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered will likely include Cat 793, 795 and 797 mining trucks, and locomotives produced by Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD), a unit of Caterpillar’s Progress Rail Services.

“There is huge economic incentive to move to natural gas,” Feucht stated noting that price of oil and gas are going to stay disconnected for the foreseeable future thereby creating an economic incentive to use natural gas in fuel-hungry high horsepower applications.

Current users of natural gas to power high horsepower equipment are realizing a cost savings of 30 to 50 percent. New technologies expanding access in North America have contributed to the low-cost of natural gas.

UK: Rolls-Royce Equipment for Iceman AHTS

http://d3n6f555sx1wcx.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Rolls-Royce-Equipment-for-Iceman-AHTS.jpg

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has been awarded a £15 million contract by STX OSV to supply an extensive deck equipment package for an advanced anchor handling vessel to be operated by Iceman AS.

The package, which is designed to improve operational safety, will include a new anchor handling frame (AHF) and a hydraulic anchor winch, which is capable of pulling 500 tonnes. It will also feature anchor handling cranes and systems to ensure controlled management of wires and chains when pulling heavy loads.

Arne Tande, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Offshore Deck Machinery said: “This latest contract cements Rolls-Royce’s position as the market leader in anchor handling equipment. We supply world leading technology which enables safer and more efficient operations in deep water oil fields.”

As the exploration and production for oil and gas moves towards deeper waters, mooring lines become heavier, more difficult and more hazardous to handle. The new AHF is designed to reduce the handling forces and wire tension during anchor deployment and retrieval operations, while also minimizing the human exposure to hazardous operating conditions. The AHF is mounted at the stern of the vessel to ease the deployment and recovery of anchors. It makes it simpler to deck the anchor with correct orientation and without repeated efforts or assistance from other vessels.

Wellbore Schematic for Completions Operations

Instead of creating wellbore diagrams manually in spreadsheet programs or by-hand, our system creates the entire diagram automatically

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 15, 2012

WellEz released a significant upgrade to the wellbore schematic component on January 24, 2012. The new wellbore schematic allows users to see both vertical and horizontal wellbore diagrams, and is automatically populated throughout the entire well lifecycle (from drilling through completion).

“Our clients will see a major benefit in time-savings” said Fernando Salazar, Technical Coordinator at WellEz Information Management. “Instead of creating wellbore diagrams manually in spreadsheet programs, or by-hand, our system creates the entire diagram automatically.”

The updated wellbore diagram component requires no input from the operator. The entire wellbore schematic is created based on drill bits, casing, and bottom hole assembly information already entered by field personnel.

Updates to the system will allow the wellbore schematic to show deviation based on survey entries, and will automatically populate diagram information from one job in the well to the next (ex. Drilling to Completion).

WellEz is also offering an expanded library of component icons. When filling out bottom hole assembly items for the drilling morning report, or entering the tubing string in a completion job, users will be able to select from a wide-variety of pre-configured icons. Additionally, packers and perforations will be displayed in the diagram during the completions phase of the well.

About WellEz

Founded in 2000, WellEz Information Management is a privately held, international oilfield service company located in Houston, Texas. The leading provider of field reporting tools for drilling, completions, and other operations, WellEz is staffed by experienced oil and gas professionals and a team of highly qualified software developers.
