ESG in Oil & Gas & The Road Ahead

In the previous blogs in this series, we discussed how environmental issues are a key consideration when investors and lenders evaluate the performance of energy companies in ESG. The leading environmental issue facing the O&G sector today is greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which are generated at every step in the production, processing, delivery, refining, and… read more →




Gasoline Blending Optimization using Spectroscopic Analyzing Techniques

The use of spectroscopic analyzing techniques in refinery process control, especially gasoline blending, is a fairly common practice in the industry. The technology to use Near-Infra Red (NIR), RAMAN, or Fourier-Transform Near-Infra Red (FTNIR or FTIR) to fine-tune component ratio, ensure meeting specification and minimize quality giveaway has been around for decades, but is this… read more →




ESG Drives Oil & Gas M&A Activity

Concerning production, the recent increase in rig count has been driven by private E&Ps, not only to enable them to benefit from higher crude oil prices but to make themselves more attractive takeover targets. In contrast, many publicly held E&Ps are facing ESG-related pressures from investors and have reined in their capital spending, returning more money… read more →




Surrogating Online Analyzers With A Real-Time Arithmetic Prediction

Online analyzers can be an effective instrument in providing real-time information for refineries to monitor their current performance in terms of unit operations, blending, emission, etc. While being very useful in providing valuable information – they can also be expensive, time-consuming to maintain, and inaccurate. These days, a lot of technical solutions are proposed to… read more →




Growth On The Horizon For Energy Sector With Soaring Crude Prices

In 2020, the combination of a huge run-up in crude supplies fueled by the Shale Revolution and the COVID-induced severe crude oil demand destruction, resulted in negative crude prices (WTI was trading at close to -38 $/B). At the time, the cliché of “nowhere to go but up” was precise and appropriate. It was a matter… read more →




How To build an Effective Analyzer Program?

In the past decade, a lot of our Oil and Gas clients have invested heavily in online analyzers as an effective technology to monitor their operation’s health status on a real-time basis. However, through our Assessments and Engagements, we noticed that a lot of these analyzers were underutilized towards their full potential. On average, an… read more →
