COVID-19 - Preparing for the new normal in Oil & Gas

Image COVID-19 - Preparing for the new normal in Oil & Gas As the oil executives of India’s major oil companies met in mid-March, they were looking back at yet another year of growth in the demand for oil. Looking ahead, they likely had some apprehensions about pace of economic growth. However, the possibility of seeing the first contraction of oil demand in nearly half a century may not have crossed their minds. The next couple of weeks brought an unprecedented situation. The demand for transport and industrial fuel didn’t just soften; it contracted sha... Read More

COVID-19 impact on the Oil & Gas industry

Image COVID-19 impact on the Oil & Gas industry The Indian Oil & Gas (O&G) industry is notable in the global context – it contributes to 5.2% of the global oil demand, is among the top three large markets in demand growth and 4th in the world in refining capacity (~249 MTPA). India is also very imports-dependent, with oil imports at 84% and gas imports at 53% of their respective annual demands. Incidentally, O&G imports constituted ~25% of India’s import bill in FY’19. Therefore the impact of COVID-19, whether due to the wide-spread dem... Read More

COVID-19 and oil price war could slash two-thirds of 2020 oil and gas project sanctioning

Image Author Name: Joel James Category Name: Geology & Earth Science Description: COVID-19 and oil price war could slash two-thirds of 2020 oil and gas project sanctioning The effect of the COVID-19 virus on global demand for oil and gas, along with an ongoing price war that has sent oil prices tumbling at an unprecedented rate, are poised to wreak havoc on new project development plans for this year. According to an impact analysis from Rystad Energy, exploration and production (E... Read More

Oil & Gas Industry Sector in India

Image Oil & Gas Industry Sector in India India is the 3rd largest energy and oil consumer in the world after China and the US. India is the 4th largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG). India consumed 213.2 MMT petroleum products and 60,747 MMSCM natural gas. The import dependency of crude oil and LNG during 2018 was 82.59% and 45.89% respectively. During 2018, petroleum import bill was $ 112 bn, a growth of 27% over $ 88 bn during 2017 - 18, and 23.42% of total gross import of the nation. India’s projected oil demand is going to gro...

The energy workforce lags

Image The energy workforce lags Description: Even as numerous industries struggle to make their workforces look more like cross-sections of the population, the energy sector in particular is running behind. The Forum’s Industry Gender Gap report in 2016 found energy among the worst in representation of women. Catalyst reports that women account for 22% of the oil and gas workforce. (IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, said last year that women make up 32% of the renewable energy workforce.) In the United States, the figures are... Read More

Geospatial Assessment of Land Use and Land Cover Patterns

Image The Black Volta Basin in Ghana has experienced some losses in its productive lands due to mining. This study assessed the Land use/cover (LULC) changes within the Basin for a period of eighteen years, and mapped current and potential mining hotspots in the Basin. The study used multispectral Landsat images for the years 2000, 2015 and 2018. Supervised classification method and Spectral Angle Mapper were used to classify and map the LULC types. Feature-based extraction method was then used to delineate mining sites along the River in the Basin. Six (6) LULC types were classified. Findings fr... Read More

Check out the recent advances on Cadastral Boundary Extraction and Image Classification

Image The present work is based on the dynamic approach for the extraction of cadastral boundaries and image classification using machine learning algorithms. The efforts are focused on easing the map digitization process in the country. The Large Scale Mean Shift Segmentation algorithm was used for the delineation of cadastral boundaries from two different types of study regions taken up for study, based on their landforms-hills and plains. The quality of segmentation was measured by AssesSeg software. Models using classifiers-Random Forest and Support Vector Machines were trained and their effi... Read More
