Oil and natural gas supply are almost two-thirds of the world’s energy needs today and are likely to continue to do so for many decades to come. While the world is not running out of oil and gas reserves anytime soon, their future development poses significant challenges for an industry that has only recently emerged from a long period of underinvestment. In this landscape, the exploration and production (E&P) industry is increasingly challenged to bring new supplies on line, on time, and at acceptable cost.
New exploration, some which has already begun, will be hampered by the remoteness inaccessibility, or geological complexity of many areas. To overcome these challenges, new ways of working and new technologies are necessary components of the E&P industry’s response.
