The full lifecycle of exploration to product deliver will be covered.
The Course Is Designed For:
- Professionals who need to learn about the industry
- Personnel within the industry
- Technical support staff entering the industry
- Technical staff who want to expand their understanding of the industry
- Students considering the industry as a career
Bernie Maloney is a professional engineer in upstream oil and gas with 35 years’ experience across all areas of well engineering (drilling, completions, testing, workovers, interventions, abandonments) plus production technology and reservoir engineering. He has worked with service companies, consultancies, independents and multinational majors in Australia, Asia, MENA and the US.
Bernie has worked in many different types of fields, onshore and offshore (incl subsea), interfacing and engaging with many other disciplines and stakeholders. His work has included formal technical studies and concept designs through field implementation, covering complete well lifecycle activities and management.
Bernie’s main areas of expertise are in well completions, interventions, well testing and production technology. He is a long-time member of the SPE and is chartered and registered as a professional engineer, both in Australia and internationally.
Bernie will be teaching all the sessions except Kuala Lumpur 14th – 18th August 2017.
Geoffrey Boyd, BSc (Hons), MSc, CEng, CITP, MEI, MBCS
Geof specialises in field development strategy, definition and value optimisation. On investment projects, Geof works with multi-disciplinary teams of sub-surface and economics professionals, as concept and facilities engineer, to evaluate petroleum assets. On front-end projects, Geof works with the wider team of discipline engineers, to identify optimal development solutions, providing expertise in strategy, costing, phasing and risk. On all projects, Geof applies his advanced information management and analysis skills to ensure that business decisions are based on information that is fully consistent, transparent and auditable.
In particular, Geof facilitates the rational consideration of multiple competing field development scenarios involving varying concepts, technologies, well strategies, production forecasts, facilities configurations, layouts, phasing and risk.
Geof has a good awareness of sub-surface and economics issues, and a good knowledge of all technical environments (onshore, offshore, subsea, floating, oil, gas, LPG, LNG, CNG, drilling, production, process, power, transportation, operations, etc).
Either directly, or via intermediary consultants, Geof has worked on a large number of investment and front-end projects, small and large, for a wide variety of independent, national and integrated oil companies.
Project clients have included such as: BP, Tullow Oil, Premier Oil, Shell, Kufpec, ONGC Videsh, Atlantic Petroleum, Cairn Energy, Tata Petrodyne, Gail (India) Ltd, Mitsui, San Leon, Prize India, MOL, Enel, Kufpec, PCG Group, Woodside Petroleum Ltd, Oil and Gas Dev Corp of Pakistan, Lloyd’s of London and Petrodar Sudan.
Geof will be teaching the 14th – 18th August 2017 session in Kuala Lumpur.
