Building your Sustainable Competitive Advantage in International Markets - Standards and Trade / Business Development
Hosted by Lafayette International Center with support from U.S. Department of Commerce on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SEMINAR:
Everett Wakai, from the U.S. Commercial Service, New Orleans, will speak about the strategic value of technical standards
and conformance in international markets. His presentation will focus on the work the U.S. Department of Commerce and other U.S. Government agencies
have realized in this area to promote U.S. global competiveness. He will also discuss trends and best practices in technical standards in business
and trade around the world and how U.S. exporters can leverage this information. In addition to the seminar, you will have the opportunity for
a one-on-one free consultation with Everett Wakai.
Sheba Person, from Louisiana Economic Development’s International Commerce Division, will explain the LOUISIANA STATE TRADE
EXPANSION PROGRAM (STEP):
The program is offering travel expense reimbursements of up to 75 percent for new-to-export companies and up to 50 percent for market-expansion companies,
for total assistance of up to $2,500 per company for attending an approved trade show. Only trade shows from an approved list are eligible for
Advanced registration is required.
This event is presented by Lafayette International Center with the support of U.S. Department of Commerce Office in New Orleans. For additional

IoT Solutions in Oil and Gas / Technical
Hosted by World Oil Webcasts on Thursday, July 20, 2017 | 1:00 PM CDT
Whether your operation is upstream, midstream, or downstream – your organization needs a solution that connects disparate assets, systems, databases, and
data/naming conventions. The industrial IoT enables organizations to build smart system architectures that avoid these classic data silos to prove
concepts and produce business value.
Industrial IoT applications can improve efficiency in Oil and Gas operations:
- Operations data management: what data can be relieved to lower the risk of overburdening the operational host, i.e., SCADA or DCS?
- Product life cycle management as a service or a product: how can we use machine learning to more effectively monitor pump asset anomalies and manage
the care for better production results?
By the end of 2017, we predict there will be large quantities of proof of concept (PoC) industrial IoT applications in Oil and Gas. There is so much
potential. To effectively bring the power of IoT to your organization, a smart approach is to choose a project that can be implemented quickly
and has a clear, measurable business value. Start simple, succeed, and apply your learning to the next project.
Productivity Improvements Through Integrated Analysis of Frac Tracer, Stimulation and Geophysical Data / Technical
Hosted by World Oil Webcasts on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 | 10:00 a.m. CDT
Adding tracers to stimulation fluid has become the industry standard methodology to identify stage production of gas, oil, and water along the length of
a wellbore with no well intervention needs. This inexpensive technology provides confirmation that a wellbore is open to flow, identifies and quantifies
stage flow contribution and provides a measure of drainage area connectivity. It also allows a correlation between zonal productivity with respect
to drilling, stimulation, and production design. Using this knowledge, the operator can amend future well development plans with a greater confidence
that the changes made will result in enhanced ultimate hydrocarbon recovery.
The webinar will illustrate the use of Tracerco tracer technology as an evaluation tool to enhance future drilling, stimulation, and production decisions.
It will provide case studies comparing actual production results with pre-completion seismic and geophysical expectations (seismic, log, landing
zone, etc.) and demonstrate how the combination of tracer data, along with other information gathered during the drilling and stimulation process,
can assist in optimizing recovery during future well development.
Upstream’s Digital Future - Using Data Analytics to Drive Down Costs / Technical
Hosted by Petroleum Economist and AspenTech on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 | 9:00 AM CDT
Reduce your production costs and improve your operational effectiveness by utilising predictive modelling and machine learning.
With 40% of upstream companies already using data analytics to boost their margins in some capacity* the oil and gas operating environment is changing
Join experts from Petroleum Economist and AspenTech at a free webcast when they will share insights into how using data can give
operators a strategic advantage by increasing efficiency and boosting margins.
Together Petroleum Economist and AspenTech will present insights from an exclusive survey of upstream industry executives, including:
The rate of adoption of data analytics projects in the upstream industry
The benefits of using machine learning and predictive modelling technology as well as the expected timeline for achieving results
The equipment types and production domains which benefit most from data analytics
Who Should Attend? Operating, technology, and engineering leaders responsible for upstream asset operations and effectiveness.
