Weekliii Round-Up: News on Offshore Oil Benefits, Overland Spill Modeling, and More

This week has flown by, but don't they all? Below you will find our round-up of posts and articles we have shared throughout the week. We hope you enjoy - and if you have extra time on your hands, here is something to help you remember us by.

Over the years, Newfoundland and Labrador has emerged as one of the most versatile provinces in the Canadian energy market. Its increased involvement in clean and renewable energy resources has expanded while its support of traditional industries - like Offshore Oil and Natural Gas - have continued to show benefits both the energy and economic faculties in the area. In this report by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), these benefits are outlined for the local communities and province as a whole.

As they say in the Geographic Information System (GIS) world, there is more than one way to remap your data...Okay, maybe that's just what we say. We all know that it can be simple enough to correct a broken or incorrect data source path within ArcMap. However, is this an approach you want to take if you have tens, hundreds, or even thousands of broken files to address? No, you don't. This post talks about the different ways we can approach this issue, remapping spatial data in a way that not only gives us results - but also gives us a record of what went where just in case.

In our day-to-day lives, we love options. From what we have for lunch to our plans on the weekend, we appreciate being able to decide what will happen and what will be most beneficial for our time and energy.

Why should we sacrifice this sense of choice when it comes to Full Field Optimization in the Oil and Gas industry?

The answer is that we really do not have to. This post introduces a solution that allows us to have more control over the planning process, customize the approach to results, and then generate multiple routing and placements opportunities themselves.

It is no secret that Big Data has shaken up every industry it has touched. In the Oil and Gas industry in particular, this has made waves in areas like well delivery and oil storage, geology interpretation and crude oil processing, plant and supply chain maintenance, and much more. Analyzing this information is where the value in Big Data is shown, but in order to see its true potential, the results of Big Data analytics must be integrated into the day-to-day business operations. This article touches on all of this more, allowing insight into how this may better be applied and where it is making the greatest impact.

When it comes to the Oil and Gas industry, there is no situation where emergency measures have been left unturned. In the possibility of a pipeline rupture or spill on land, this is where Integrated Offsite shines its best light. Designed to model the impact and travel time of Overland Spills, this model can also be applied to those industries outside of Natural Resources that would need to respond in the case of a disaster such as this - such as First Responder and local organizations.
