Managing Risks and Optimising an Energy Portfolio with PLEXOS®
| By Energy Exemplar
Energy markets inherently exhibit far greater risk compared to traditional financial markets such as equities and bonds. Energy commodities in general display differentiating characteristics when compared to other asset classes which make conventional approaches to valuation, hedging and risk management a challenge for even the talented of risk managers. Market fundamentals play a larger impact with both supply and demand factors causing price behaviour to be very uncertain and at times volatile when compared to the price behaviour of other asset classes. Weather, infrastructure failure and fuel shortages coupled with rapidly changing demand for electricity on a daily or even hourly time scales make accurate price forecasting a constant concern. This white paper aims at analysing some of the quantifiable risks facing integrated energy companies and how fundamental optimisation software coupled with systematic and robust analysis can help decision makers manage risk and optimise their energy portfolio to retain their competitive advantage.

Meeting Future Environmental Challenges Onshore
| By Aquateam COWI
Biological wastewater treatment processes are well-known to the oiland gas-refining industry. The activated sludge biological water treatment process is used in conjunction with plate separators and chemical/physical processes such as coagulation/flocculation and flotation for wastewater treatment in refineries worldwide. Increasing oil prices and enhanced oil recovery techniques, including oil production in mature fields with high volumes of water produced, at the same time as the tightening of environmental regulations in many areas, not only bring challenges offshore in terms of the management of produced water for the upstream oil industry, but also lead the downstream industry into a new arena with respect to water and waste management.

Model Behavior
| By Tekla
The engineering and fabrication of oil and gas facilities have traditionally been treated as separate processes. Paul Wallett, business manager at software specialist Tekla, explains how this distinction is starting to blur, with positive implications for the modeling and execution of construction projects.

Modeling and Simulating of Deepwater Systems for Oil and Gas Production
| By Agito AS
Most of the new oil fields are located in deepwater and are generally referred to as deepwater systems. Development of these fields sets strict requirements for verification of the various systems’ functions and their compliance with current requirements and specifications. This is because of the high costs and time involved in changing a pre-existing system due to the specialized vessels with advanced onboard equipment.

Modeling and Simulation of Advanced Pumped-Storage Hydropower Technologies and their Contributions to the Power System
| By Energy Exemplar
With the larger penetration of variable renewable energy resources, the role of energy storage in the power system is becoming increasingly important. The flexibility of operation of hydro and pumped-storage power plants and the variety of ancillary services that they provide to the grid enable better utilization of variable renewable resources and more efficient and reliable operation of the entire power system. The US Department of Energy’s Water Power Program has funded a recent study to enhance the modeling and simulation of advanced pumped-storage hydropower (PSH) technologies and examine the value of different services and contributions that they can provide to the power system.

Modeling and Simulation of Subsea Chemical Distribution Systems
| By Agito AS
There is frequently a need for injection of different types of chemicals in subsea production systems. Examples of chemicals: Methanol, corrosion inhibitors, and scale inhibitors. It is highly important, from the viewpoints of both technology and costs, to have control at all times of how much and at which points the various chemicals are injected into the different production lines.

Modelling and Quantifying the Benefit of Gas and Electric System Coordination
| By Energy Exemplar
The trend of the future electricity supply is going towards a direction with higher penetration of renewables. For the traditional fossil fuel fired generating resources, we will see the generation greatly shift from coal fired generating resources to gas fired, due to the apparently harsh environmental regulations put onto the coal plants. This trend makes the entire electricity supply more environmentally friendly, but it is also creating more pressure on the gas supply. While shale gas development solved the puzzle on the gas production side, gas fired generators still rely on the gas pipeline infrastructure and system awareness between gas and electric systems to ensure the gas supply whenever needed. That is especially true in an extreme event like Polar Vortex, when gas demands are extremely high in all sectors. Currently, the total gas consumption from the electric generators is around one third of the total gas consumption in the US, as shown in Fig. 1. With the electric power industry moving towards more gas fired generators, this percentage will keep going up, which means more interdependent gas and the electricity markets and therefore a strong need for studying both systems together.

Monitoring Microbial Activity in Petroleum Systems
| By Aquateam COWI
Microbial activity in petroleum systems causes serious operational problems, including biofouling, reservoir souring and corrosion, resulting in economic loss to the industry world wide. Molecular techniques for microbial monitoring provide valuable information about microbial identity, numbers, and abundance in a given system. They however often lack in providing information about the metabolic activity and the functional interaction of the microorganisms with their environment.
