Dzięki wsparciu firmy GAZ-SYSTEM członkowie naszej organizacji mają szansę uczestniczyć w konferencji ATCE odbywającej się w San Antonio, USA!

Operator Gazociągów przesyłowych (OGP) GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. jest strategiczną firmą dla polskiej ekonomii i bepieczeństwa energetycznego. Jej głównym zadaniem jest przesył gazu przez sieci transportowe znajdujące się na terenie całego kraju, aby dostarczyć gaz do sieci dystrybucji oraz do odbiorców końcowych podłączonych do systemu gazociągów. GAZ-SYSTEM jako narodowy monopolista na przesył gazu jest głównie odpowiedzialny za zapewnienie wszystkim uczestnikom rynku gazowego równego dostępu do sieci przesyłowej. Odpowiada również za utrzymanie, naprawy i rozwój obiektów przesyłowych – jest właścicielem i operatorem wszystkich rurociągów z gazem w Polsce (zarówno przesyłowych, jak i dystrybucyjnych), z wyjątkiem gazociągu jamalsko-europejskiego
GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. nie zajmuje się wyłącznie wewnątrzkrajowym przesyłem gazu – jest właścicielem spółki Polskie LNG S.A. powstałej w celu wybudowania i późniejszego operowania terminalem LNG w Świnoujściu. Wspomniany wcześniej terminal dywersyfikuje źródła naturalnego gazu, co skutkuje zwiększeniem narodowego bezpieczeństwa energetycznego. Dodatkowo są współwłaścicielami i współoperatorami ‘Baltic Pipe’, czyli rurociągu między Polską i Danią.

Thanks to courtesy of GAZ-SYSTEM our students will be able to participate in the Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition. We can’t wait to see their relation from the event!

Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is a strategic company for Poland’s economy and energy security. It’s key task is the transport of gas via the transmission network throughout the country to supply with gas the distribution networks and final customers connected to the transmission system. GAZ-SYSTEM as national monopolist on the gas transmission is generaly
responsible for providing gas-market participants with equal access to the transmission network. Company is responsible also for maintaining, repairing and developing transmission facilities – Gaz-System owns and operates all gas transmission and distribution pipelines in Poland, except the Yamal–Europe pipeline.
GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. does not deal exclusively with intrastate gas transmission – it owns the company Polskie LNG S.A., set up to build and operate the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at Świnoujście. The LNG terminal is diversifying natural-gas supply sources, which translates into improved national energy security. In addition company is the owner and co-operator of the ‘Baltic Pipe’ pipeline between Poland and Denmark.

Opening Ceremony

This year on 20th-22nd of April our Faculty of Drilling, Oil and Gas was a host to the seventh edition of ‘East Meets West’ International Student Petroleum Congress & Career Expo. It was attended by approximately three hundred students from more than twenty countries. As always ‘East meets West’ received huge support from petroleum industry companies. For the first time Congress had four Partner companies and four Supporters:

Orlen Upstream – Golden Partner
United Oilfield Services – Student Partner
EY – Student Partner
MOL Group – Power Break Partner
Schlumberger – Support
National Oilwell Varco – Support
FMC Technologies – Support
ILF Consulting Engineers – Support

Particular interest could be seen in the debate about current economic problems within the industry, their origins and solutions for the future. Panel experts for this year included: Cezary Filipowicz (Country Manager, United Oilfield Services), Tomasz Rybczak (CEO, Slovnaft Poland), Piotr Starostka (Senior Manager, EY Business Advisory) and Jakub ‘Jimmy’ Ślęk (Drilling Consultant, Halliburton).

On Thursday and Friday the attending students shared the results of their scientific researches in the form of presentations and posters. The jury noted the exceptionally high level of competition, with the winners showing creative and unorthodox solutions to particular problems. The students which won this year’s contests were: Erini Adamopoulou from Greece (DTU Denmark) for „Paper Contest”, Nicola Zivelonghi and Christian Mudrak from Austria (NTNU Trondheim) for „Poster Session” and Riverson Oppong from Ghana (Gubkin Russian State University) for „PhD Panel”.

Additionally, attending students could partake in interesting workshops conducted by company representatives from FMC Technologies and National Oilwell Varco.

If for some reason you missed this year’s congress – don’t worry. We will be waiting for you next year with another huge dose of knowledge and experience!

ABSTRACT

“Hydraulic Fracture Complexity: Insights From Geology, Modeling, and Physical Experiments”

The shale gas revolution, ushered in through the Barnett shale development in Texas, demonstrated the potential of multifracture horizontal wells. A close companion with hydraulic fracture placement technology was fracture diagnostic technology. The ideas around hydraulic fracture complexity exploded with the widespread application of microseismic monitoring.
This talk will use natural fracture examples and create complex fracture geometries using numerical fracture propagation modeling and scaled laboratory experiments. Evidence of stress shadow effects is illustrated for natural fractures, and the consequent effect in hydraulic fractures is demonstrated through modeling.
Cemented natural fractures are proposed as primary pre-existing flaws with which hydraulic fractures might interact, and the factors influencing this interaction are illustrated. Scaled laboratory experiments simulating hydraulic fracturing in naturally fractured reservoirs illustrate the range of fracture interaction geometries that might occur in the subsurface.
Lessons learned from this integrated approach to fracture complexity characterization can help guide well planning, geologic data collection, and hydraulic fracture optimization efforts.
