The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.
Structural integrity assessment is important for development of methods and materials to improve safe operation and resistance to failure and fracture in all areas of industry. Fracture control is vital where failure of large structures could be catastrophic. This symposium will deal with failure prevention in the oil & gas industry, focusing in particular on the mechanics and phenomena of degradation and fracture initiation by stress corrosion cracking and sulfide stress corrosion cracking.

Failure analysis is a structured approach used to determine the immediate cause of a failure and help identify contributing factors. It helps the asset operator understand future risks, assess mitigating actions, and provide unbiased information to stakeholders. Failure analysis is a key part of the integrity management system, and the collection of failure data can assist in the safe continued operation of ageing assets.

Natural gas processing, terminals, pipelines and other forms of petroleum product transport are part of the midstream oil & gas sector. Processing these midstream operations safely, efficiently and reliably has proven to be an ongoing challenge. In the current Industries, the gas processor’s focus on the improvement of existing asset reliability and efficiencies that drive capacity and throughput. Transportation plays a major role in midstream activities which include using pipelines, trucking fleets, tanker ships, and rail cars. The midstream gathering and processing sector are relatively free of commercial regulation, the movement of gas by interstate pipelines and subsequent state-level distribution activities are highly regulated in the US by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Geophysical investigation techniques will provide subsurface information without digging/drilling. The GIS(Geographical information systems) is a computer-based system for recording, modelling, analyzing and presenting geographically referred data. GIS data will contain Location-related data such as roads, elevations, boreholes and associated property data. Surveying geotechnical design parameters on land investigating & monitoring areas subject to rock slides, investigating reservoirs of oil and gas, modelling rock slide paths, surveying risks in transport and data management. Remote imaging conducted by terrestrial, airborne or satellite based platforms will have the ability to accurately image the Earth's surface with high resolution. This can be used for settlement & deformation monitoring, surveying rock slides and making engineering geology evaluations.

Refining is a process of converting crude oil into usable products. Crude oil is a mixture of hundreds of different types of hydrocarbons with carbon chains of different lengths. These can be separated through refining. The refining technics as follows: Physical separation through crude distillation, Conversion or upgrading of the basic distillation streams, Product treatment to purify and remove contaminants and pollutants, Product blending to create products that comply with market specifications. Cracking: Cracking processes break down heavier hydrocarbon molecules (high boiling point oils) into lighter products such as petrol and diesel, using heat (thermal) or catalysts (catalytic). Enhancing Oil Recovery With Bottom Water Drainage Completion. Field tests with DWS well completions have shown that DWS can control water coning and increase oil production rate.

Oil and gas industries have unique workï¬‚ow, working conditions & operational and environmental factors which demand online inventory management solution that effectively monitors the offshore operations to provide a safe workplace for site personnel & tracks the movement of assets for distribution across the supply chain. The remote monitoring of tote operations will ensure the safety of the site personnel by reducing the need to be in the offshore environment for extended periods to record and perform manual inventory. Online inventory monitoring/management system for tote inventory is built using RFID (Radio Frequency Identiï¬cation) & WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks). RFID and WSN underwent vast development in their own areas and the integration of these two versatile technologies(RFID and WSN) opened doors to industrial automation.

Non-destructive Testing(NDT) methods are utilised in the oil & gas industry, to address problems concerning safety, equipment reliability, and environmental protection and government regulations. the conventional Techniques like Visual inspection is an inexpensive technique for detecting equipment flaws and defect. ultrasonic testing utilizes sound waves uses the piezo-electric effect of the ultrasonic transducer makes it possible to transmit and receive from within the equipment. radiographic strategies utilize X-ray or gamma rays (electromagnetic radiation) to look at the inner structure and integrity of the instrumentation. Thermographic review measures the distinction between the temperature of a pipeline and also the surrounding environment. Acoustic emissions detect the presence of rarefaction waves created by leaks in pipelines. The advanced NDT methods as follows: Novel radioisotope inspection, ultrasonic phased array (PA), Time of flight diffraction (ToFD), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Automatic ultrasonic testing (AUT)

The Digital Transformation Initiative that serves as the focal point at the Forum for new opportunities and themes arising from latest developments in the digitalization of business and society. Digitalization's impact on Oil and Gas was considered across the value chain, from exploration and production to midstream, (refinery) and retail. A new era for the Oil and Gas companies began to digital technologies, with a focus on better understanding a reservoir's resource and production potential, improving health and safety, and boosting marginal operational efficiencies at oil fields around the world.

The Oil and Gas business holds a significant potential of hazards for the atmosphere, and should impact on large areas of the sea, the seabed and on land. They affect the environment through emissions to air, noise from seismic surveys and their physical footprint on the seabed. commercial fish species are sensitive to sound and, at close vary, larval fish might even be killed by seismic sources. Water contamination due to discharges of water effluents made in inorganic salts without appropriate treatment (saline pollution). thermal pollution due to discharge of effluents with temperatures beyond recipient water bodies. Water contamination due to oil spills. Particulate emissions into the atmosphere generated throughout operations at production and refining plants. Accidents that impact the environment, like large oil spills, leaks, fires and explosions on plants, ultimate deaths.
