Competence transfer for offshore russian operators

Authors: V.V. Lavrov, K.M. Fedorov, G.P. Nalimov, P.D. McMorran (OILTEAM Company, RF, Sochi)

Key words: offshore, Arctic, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), unconventional hydrocarbon resources, MSc program, training and engineering cluster, multidisciplinary approach.

The paper analyzes three scenarios of maintaining the high level of hydrocarbon production: expansion to offshore production, application of EOR, development of unconventional hydrocarbon reserves. Positive and negative aspects of the scenarios are considered, advantages of E&P on Russia’s Arctic shelf are highlighted. All scenarios require immediate formation of new competences. The authors consider different solutions and practical approaches implemented in Russia. The analysis of the service company OILTEAM reveals critical stages of competence formation and personnel development. Related challenges are addressed.
