Nanotechnology shows potential for oil and gas operations (OE 2009)

Abstract:
There are many possibilities for nanoparticle technology applications in oil and gas operations, but the realities lag the possibilities, Sergio Kapusta said at Offshore Europe 2009 today.

Kapusta, chief scientist and manager of Energy Innovation and Technology for Shell Global Solutions International, identified a number of operations that could benefit from nanotechnology in time. One of those areas is in reservoir management. At present, industry can acquire limited information from short distances outside the wellbore in hydrocarbon reservoirs. Drawing from medical applications, Kapusta said it could become possible to send nano "robots" into a reservoir and interrogate those robots to gather information about the horizon and also to deliver chemicals into the reservoir.
