The Data Governance is the set of rules defining the data: property, storage, protection, and in case of exploitation how it should be shared or rewarded.
A new year is starting, so is a new Energy market filled with opportunities to outlook for 2021.
The Renewables and Decarbonification projects enjoyed an unprecedented impulse in 2020 and the momentum is set to continue in 2021.
The USA Presidential elections this month have retained the attention of all business leaders worldwide. Now the result is known, declaring Mister Biden the next president of the United States of America, it is time to wonder what are the US election impacts on the Oil & Gas and Energy market.
In this period of social and economic confusion, Gas projects seem to benefit from an exceptional stability.
The level of investment for gas projects is equal in 2020 to 2019.
As part of the underlying Oil & Gas and Petrochemical market revolution, the business model for projects is changing.
In fact, the new business model is a return to the basic of ROI (Return on Investment) calculations.
Thus, the new business model aims to shorten project timeline while controlling costs. Delivering “Fast-track” projects in 2-3 years.
Definition Water Desalination is the conversion of sea water into potable water. Desalination is a process commonly used in desert regions which can not use rivers, lakes, or ground waters as viable source for populations. Removing the salts and other minerals from seawater will be the only source of potable water for 15% of the world population …
Carbon Storage is the isolation of gases responsible of the greenhouse effect from the atmosphere.
The goal is to reverse the atmosphere pollution by injecting captured Dioxyde (CO2) underground in reservoirs for long-term storage or to be re-used in a close future.
Once injected underground, the Dioxyde (CO2) can either:
Deteriorate over a long period of time
Participate to Enhanced Oil Recovery Operations (EOR)
Be later transformed in plastics, fuel, concrete
Carbon Capture concept is to seize gases responsible of the greenhouse effect, preventing their increasing presence in our atmosphere.
From all the gases responsible of the global warming, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is of course the main culprit, the reason behind the name of Carbon Capture.
Carbon Capture can occur in two situations, directly from the air, or from industrial processes. It is in this second case Carbon Capture is the most efficient by reducing up to 90% of CO2 emissions from a plant.
The Windmill concept is the conversion of wind energy into electricity.
Blowing, the wind presses the blades of the windmill which creates a slow movement of rotation. This rotation is then multiplied to drive a generator at high speed thus, creating electricity.
The electricity later needs some transformation before being injected in the grid.
The largest windmill having a production capacity of 15MW, most of the time, projects are the installation of windmills in farm counting between 10 to 250 units.
The Solar Thermal concept to produce energy, not to be confused with the Solar Photovoltaic, is the conversion of sunlight heat into electricity.
The thermodynamic principle at the heart of Solar Thermal facilities is the same across the different types of plant:
Sunlight rays are concentrated to heat fluid containers
High temperature fluid then supplies steam generators
Steam produced drives turbines which generate electricity
