This should be a start for Venezuela...

Venezuela holds greatest oil auction on earth
31-10-08 Venezuela initiated the biggest and most prominent oil auction in the world and the only oil round in the last ten years in Venezuela. Venezuela is looking for partners to its oil company to develop the first phase of 1.3 bn extra heavy oil barrels, in an area of 55.314 sq km on land that with present technology will yield 415 bn of barrels.
Rafael Ramirez, oil minister and Venezuela's PdVSA oil company president, addressed around 200 oil executives from 75 companies, of which 47 companies were oil operators selected by PdVSA to participate in the auction.

The 47 companies were Ancap, BP, Chevron, CNPC, Ecopetrol, Enarsa, ENI, Galp Energia, Gazprom, Harvest Vinccler, Inpex, Itochu, JGC, Jogmec, Kanoc, LUKoil, Marubeni, Mitsui, ONGC, Perenco, Petrobras, Petropars, PetroSA, PetroVietnam, Pluspetrol, PTT, Repsol, Shaanxi Yanchang, Shell, Sinochem, Sinopec, StatoilHydro, Suelopetrol, Sumitomo Tecpetrol, Total, Vinccler, and ZhenHua Oil, Ramirez told the audience.
Venezuela opened the auctionfor four blocks in the Carabobo area of the Orinoco Faja basin (one of four areas), the four blocks have 61.9 bn certified barrels of oil in place, Ramirez said.

Here's another part that explains when the companies will find out!

Venezuela Opens Orinoco Heavy Oil Licensing Round

185 days ago
 
CARACAS (Dow Jones)--Venezuela opened licensing for three heavy oil blocks in the Orinoco basin Thursday, the first such offer in more than a decade

Currently PdVSA is partnered with Chevron Corp. (CVX), BP Plc (BP), StatoilHydro (STO) and Total Oil (TOT), in the Orinoco. These companies chose to remain as partners after President Hugo Chavez took controlling stakes in the heavy oil ventures during a nationalization campaign in 2007.

Hydrocarbon Potential of the Aruba and Western Curacao Basins, Offshore Venezuela

 

El-Mowafy, Hamed Zeidan1, Paul Mann2, Alejandro Escalona2 (1) Institute for Geophysics, Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX (2) Jackson School of Geosciences, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX

 

Although Venezuela is the sixth largest oil producer in the world, there is no significant hydrocarbon production from its offshore basins.

 

We use a 885 km grid of 2D seismic data and three deep exploration wells drilled in 1989/90 to evaluate the hydrocarbon potential of two, 5.4-6 km-thick offshore basins near Aruba.

 

Four seismic sequences are defined: Sequence 1 consists of a 1300-m-thick section of continentally-derived clastic deep-water sediments, overlying an irregular basement of Late Cretaceous-Paleogene arc rocks; thicknesses are controlled by an east-striking set of parallel normal faults. Sequence 2 consists of a 2600-m-thick, early Miocene section of deep-marine deposits controlled by northwest-striking normal faults; the top of sequence 2 corresponds to the Middle Miocene unconformity of regional extent. Sequences 3 and 4 record 1450-m of a late Miocene deepwater to shelfal clastic and carbonate basin section; shelf-slope-fan clastic systems infill from small deltaic systems along the Venezuelan coast; normal displacements are observed on a set of northwest-striking faults.

Limited maturation data from the three wells indicates that only the southwestern part of the study area falls within the oil and gas window. These observations are consistent with bright spots seen on the seismic data and by gas shows reported from the wells.

A potential source is the continentally-derived terrigenous section of sequence 1; potential reservoirs include slope fans within sequence 3 and carbonate buildups on footwall blocks within sequence 4. Migration pathways are provided by northwest-striking normal faults that penetrate from the basement level through sequence 4.

I thought We might get some hints from this post of Kyle's



Saturday, December 1, 2007
IV. Background
 

This post's intention is to provide a technical brief for background on how a search of this kind is possible and how it all works together.

The technical details of any ocean exploration project largely depends on the purpose of the survey. Common purposes include: exploration for science and general mapping, military applications (unexploded ordnance detection), marine construction such as for submarine cables, pipelines, offshore energy infrastructure, offshore wind-farms, offshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities, bridges, tunnels... etc), marine mining and drilling, searching for downed aircraft, lost shipwrecks, marine salvage, and in this case...missing persons.

Typical tools of the trade to image the water column, seafloor, and what's below the seafloor include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:

Side Scan Sonar - A sonar system used to efficiently image large areas of the sea floor in terms of bathymetric features and character, and detection and identification of underwater objects. A side scan sonar emits a fan-shaped wide angle pulse of sound towards the seafloor perpendicular to the path of the sensor through the water. The sound pulses reflect off of relief or objects that are laying on the seafloor. The strength and travel time of those reflected sound pulses are recorded and processed by a sonar computer to produce an image of the seafloor.

Magnetometer - An instrument used to measure the strength and/or direction of the magnetic field in the vicinity of the instrument. A magnetometer is used for detecting iron-bearing debris, cables, and pipelines. We are using a SeaSpy Overhauser marine magnetometer. An Overhauser magnetometer utilizes some interesting quantum physics effects (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance-NMR) that takes advantage of the physical phenomenon based upon the quantum mechanical magnetic properties of the hydrogen atom's nucleus, but probably beyond the scope of this writing.

Echo Sounder - (or fathometer) uses pulses of sound directed from the sea surface vertically down to the seafloor to measure the distance to the bottom. The water depth is measured by multiplying the half-travel time of the outgoing pulse to it's return by the speed of sound in water (about 1,500 meters per second). We commonly use a multi-beam echo sounder (MBES) to produce a high-resolution 3-dimensional map of the seabed.

Subbottom Profiler - An acoustic system used to create cross-sectional images below the seafloor. The relatively low frequency sonar (typically 3.5kHz) penetrates the upper 10s of meters of sediment below the seafloor (penetration dependent upon geology, power, and frequency) and reflects on density contrasts (acoustic impedance contrasts) within the sediment which is recorded and processed to produce a "subbottom profile".

Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) - Unoccupied tethered underwater robot. ROVs are typically highly maneuverable, operated by a pilot aboard a vessel to which the ROV is tethered, and are useful for video, sampling, salvage, or construction.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)- Unoccupied, untethered, underwater robot typically used for acquiring high-resolution sonar data (side scan, subbottom, and multi-beam), video, or sampling. AUVs are programmed to fly along a specific route or to perform a set of specific tasks during a dive. They navigate by acoustic beacons referenced to a support ship with GPS along with an internal inertial navigation system and Doppler velocity imaging system.

Human Occupied Vehicle (HOV) - Manned deep-ocean submersibles used for in situ exploration, sampling, and observation. These versatile submersibles are capable at bringing scientists, researchers, and workers to great depths. The submersible Alvin (DSV-2) is perhaps the world's most famous, known for surveying the wreck of the RMS Titanic in 1986. Alvin carries two scientists and a pilot as deep as 4,500 meters (about three miles).

This search will utilize a side scan sonar, echosounder, and a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Once the R/V Persistence is on site in Aruba, we will perform a sound velocity profile (SVP) to measure the sound velocity of the local sea water. A bathymetric survey will be performed to basically map out the seabed. This will consist of gridding the search area with the echosounder so that we know what to expect during the side scan sonar survey. After the bathymetry throughout the survey is at least roughly known, the side scan sonar search will be performed. After the sonar data is processed and analysed for sonar targets, the ROV will perform a dive series on the sonar targets.

During the side scan survey, the side scan sonar will be towed behind the boat. The height of the towfish will be controlled to stay a fixed height off the bottom. Typically, a side scan sonar is towed 10% of its range per side off the sea floor. For example, if we set the side scan to cover 100m (50m to either side), then we will tow the fish 5m off the bottom. Maintaining this height off bottom can be challenging and stressful in unknown or quickly changing conditions. Flying too high will provide poor data and flying too low also provides poor data and worse... risks a catastrophic collision with the seabed. The towfish depth is only controlled by varying the length of cable out (layback) and varying tow speed with the vessel.

GPS positioning is recorded into the sonar data during acquisition. In shallow water (less than around 300ft) the position of the towfish will be calculated based on the GPS provided position of the boat and the amount of cable out. In deeper water, towfish position (and the ROV when in use) will be tracked acoustically by an ultra-short baseline (USBL) tracking system. A transducer / hydrophone mounted on the R/V Persistence sends a low frequency "ping" into the water column. A transponder beacon mounted on the towfish or ROV submersible hears the ping, then sends two reply pings on different frequencies. The first ping gives range and bearing information, and the second ping gives water depth. This occurs at a regular interval throughout the dive. The information from these acoustic signals are then converted into horizontal distance and bearing points indicating the position of the submersible in relation to the support ship.

The accurate positioning of the side scan sonar towfish is vital to properly locating any sonar targets it detects. At the same time, the ROV must be properly positioned and tracked so it can be guided to those targets. If for example the towfish was positioned 1/2 degree off, with about a mile of cable out (expected layback in the deeper portions of the search), we would mis- locate the sonar target by 50ft. This error would make it difficult and time consuming to find the target with the ROV (if it isn't missed completely).

Bringing this over from the NH Thread






06 May 2008 - Upstream onLine by Tom Darin Liskey - Russian explorer Gazprom will use the newbuild jack-up rig Offshore Vigilant to probe a potentially prolific offshore project in Venezuela’s shallow water sector, sources at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston said. The rig – capable of operating in water depths of up to 350 feet – is being built at the Keppel AmFels shipyard in Brownsville, Texas, for Scorpion Offshore. Details about the length and day rate for the independent-leg, extended reach cantilever rig were not available. Scorpion officials declined to confirm that Gazprom will use the rig, saying only that it will be delivered to Venezuela. The proposed contract will last at least 11 months and generate some $72 million in revenues. The rig is scheduled for completion this year and should be delivered to Venezuela in the third quarter. Russia’s Gazprom wants a rig to explore the Urumaco 1 and Urumaco 2 blocks in the Gulf of Venezuela. PDVSA sources have said the Urumaco permits are expected to unlock significantly more than 1 trillion cubic feet of gas, based on seismic data. Meanwhile, Chevron is understood to be close to signing an agreement with Dallas-based Ensco for a jack-up to drill a well in Venezuela. Sources said the rig will probably come from the US Gulf of Mexico. The rig will be used to kick off exploration drilling in 2009 at the shallow-water Cardon 3 block. Moreover, the US supermajor has been leading an effort with other international oil companies including Spain’s Repsol YPF and Brazil’s Petrobras to share the rig. The Gazprom and Chevron acreage form part of the so-called Rafael Urdaneta project, which covers 30,000 square kilometres and, according to official reports, holds as much as 26 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

This is a PDF file and always have trouble with Them but Please go to the link to Pages 26 and 27.....Looks Very Interesting...This is only part of the article.

Please forgive Me for not relaying this very well...I'm getting really tired and My eyes have about had it for the night..

The SelecT group of half a dozen proponents currently pushingthe compressed natural gas (cnG) conceptasaviablebusinessmodel for gas distribution have yet to achieve that much hoped for, but so far elusive, maiden contract for one of their number.however, there is talk of a breakthrough deal within months and a number of these teams are understood to be negotiating promising projects. Perhaps the most buoyant among them is calgary-based company Sea nG, the outfit with the longest pedigree, tracing its roots back to the coselle concept it started evolving 10 years ago in its original incarnation as cran and Stenning. late last month Sea nG revealed that it has gone as far as inaugurating the construction site that it will use to build the giant coils of pipe that are at the heart of the coselle concept. it has settled on Gunsan of South Korea to construct the coselles. “we spent a long time finding the optimum location,” says chief executive Dave Stenning, “and we have finally chosen this site on the west coast about two and a half hour’s drive south of Seoul, allowing good access to chinese and Korean yards.” as for construction of the hull for a cnG vessel: “we have a number of possibilities, includ-ing a small Korean shipyard that is holding a slot open for us.“So we really do have all of our ducks in line for a first com-mercial contract and we are get-ting very close to a project,” says Stenning. “we are hoping that we could sign a deal in the next two or three months.” The caribbean and Mediterra-nean are where Sea nG appears to have its most promising pros-pects. in particular, although the company is making no official comment, Sea nG is understood to be in the running for a project in the caribbean that, if it gets off the ground, could well be the one that starts the cnG ball roll-ing. This is a proposal to carry gas from colombia to markets in that region. as Upstream noted last month, canadian producer Pacific rubi-ales energy is looking into the feasibility of offering volumes of gas from its la cresciente field in north-west colombia to smaller regional consumers such as Jamaica, Panama, the Dominican republic, aruba and curazao. Typically, this type of cus-tomer does not have the market or industrial capacity to invest in lnG imports.“we are focusing on cnG as opposed to lnG, due mainly to the size of the potential market and the travelling distance,” edu-ardo lima, Pacific rubiale’s vice president for projects develop-ment was reported as saying.Volumes in the range between 20 million and 50 million cubic feet of gas per day might be exported, said the company.This is exactly the sort of project that the cnG fraternity has been promoting as their niche. Says Stenning: “we have defined our sector as handling volumes of gas of no more than half a bil-lion cubic feet per day, and over a distance of no more than 2000 kilometres. we are not a billion cubic foot a day technology, nor one that is going to travel three or four thousand kilometres.” in fact, at present the main focus for the company falls far closer to the 100 million to 200 million cubic foot range than half a billion. he notes that the empha-sis in the cnG business is now changing from ‘stranded gas’ to ‘stranded markets’, for example allowing markets that are now burning heavy or light fuel oil, and are relatively nearby to large gas supplies, to access that gas in an economic fashion.There is also another dark horse in the background. This is the possibility of using cnG as a means of dealing with associated gas in a time of ever-more strin-gent legislation against flaring of gas.The gas storage coselle in the Sea nG design is essentially a coil of 17 kilometres of six-inch diam-eter steel pipe. when filled with gas at a pressure of 3200 psi it holds about 3 million cubic feet. The company has a range of ship sizes able to accommodate anything from six to 84 coselles. The smallest is essentially a barge. Then there are three ships - the c16 with 16 coselles, which is Sea NG chief executive DavidStenning (above) selectedGunsan, South Korea, as the yardwhere his company will build the Coselle carousels that are at theheart of its particular variation onthe theme of compressed naturalgas, here (main image) seenbeing loaded out into the hullGraphic/Photo: SEA NGOpportunity knocks for CNGColombian gas field looks strong candidate to give proponent Sea NGa first commercial contract for compressed natural gas developmentSea NG keeps it simple26ONS OFFICIAL SHOW DAILYWEDNESDAY, 27 AUGUST 2008 TECHTALKADRIAN COTTRILLStavangerTHE SEA NG design is one of the simplest of the various concepts for compressed natural gas transport being promoted by interested groups.Over the past 10 years it has evolved the Coselle, a large coil of pipe — typically 17 kilometres of six-inch diameter high-quality linepipe — wound into a cylindrical storage carousel and weighing about 500 tonnes in all. CNG concepts in general transport gas at a pressure that can range from about 1500 psi up to 4000 psi, and at a temperature between minus 40 Celsius and plus 30C.This gives a compression ratio of 250 to 350:1 compared with gas at atmospheric pressure. This is not as efficient as the 600:1 ratio of liquefied natural gas but it is a whole lot cheaper to achieve. In the Sea NG concept, the gas is at 3200 psi and a temperature around minus 15 degrees Celsius, ending up at a compression ratio of 285:1.Prior to loading, the natural gas requires minimal treatment.“It is telling that in the last year confidence in the technology has grown, and now the commercial aspects are receiving greater attention than the technical issues that once were the major focus,” said Michael Hanrahan of the Centre for Marine CNG.

He also noted that “the customer focus has shifted from integrated oil companies to national oil companies. “regional solutions continue to be the focus for this niche technology that complements LNg and pipelines for stranded gas monetisation at relatively low cost.“Capital costs are much less for a CNgsolution and it is scalable from river barges up to LNg size ships. However, its lower energy density than LNgmeans the economic supply distance has a theoretical upper limit of around 2000 nautical miles.” as for the providers of CNgtechnology, three of the six are Canadian: Sea Ng, Trans CNginternational, and Trans ocean gas. Two more are Norwegian: Knutsen and CeTech Marine. enerSea is from the US.Hanrahan provided thumbnail sketches of the six groups.Sea NG, in the form of its predecessor company Cran and Stenning of Calgary, was the first to apply pipeline concepts to shipping natural gas. Over the past 10 years it has evolved the Coselle, a large coil of pipe wound into a cylindrical storage carousel weighing about 500 tonnes. The Coselle ship design gained full classification approval for construction by ABS in September 2006, the same year that Sea NG partnered with Marubeni and TeeKay.EnerSea partnership includes Mitsui and Hyundai as proposed shipbuilder. Its Votrans system (above) stores gas at minus 30°C, an approach it claims compresses more gas into a given volume at approximately half the pressure of competitors. Lower pressure also allows thinner walled cylinders, which in turn reduces weight and cost. Offloading uses a chilled liquid fluid that is pumped in to displace the gas at constant pressure.CETech Marine was formed in August 2004 by Statoil, Teekay Shipping and Hoegh, and earlier development work had been pursued in a preliminary project since 2002. The company is keeping details of its technology under wraps.Trans Ocean Gas of Newfoundland(left) bases it approach around fibre reinforced plastic pressure vessels. These sit vertically in steel frames with connecting manifolds at top and bottom that allow removal of condensed natural gas liquids during a voyage. The company claims a weight only a third of steel’s for its pressure vessels, along with good resistance to corrosion and to temperatures as low as minus 80 degrees C. Trans CNG bases its system around lightweight composite pipe technology under licence from NCF Industries. It operates at ambient temperature and a pressure above 3000 psi. The company is a joint venture of TransCanada Pipelines and Overseas Shipholding Group. Knutsen OAS employs vertical cylinders for gas containment, claiming simplicity and robustness with an all-steel design operating at ambient temperature. Like most of the other proponents, it uses high pressure, in this case 4000 psi. Europipe and DNV have been contributors to the technology development and the former has been qualified by DNV as supplier of containment cylinders.already approved for construc-tion; the c25, which should receive that approval shortly; and the c84 farther into the future.“From a safety perspective the technical advantage is that we use coils of small diameter pipe rather than one large diameter vessel, says robert Dick, vice president of operations at Sea nG. The 10-hectare site at Gusan will allow the automated con-struction of coselles. Marine construction corpo-ration (Mcc), a wholly owned Korean subsidiary of Sea nG, anticipates the facility will be in full production of the containers by late 2009, allowing Sea nG to begin construction of its fleet of ships. “a coselle is just another 500-tonne block in the shipbuild-ing process that can be loaded into a hull in the same way as any other block during ship construc-tion, so it is all very straightfor-ward,” says Stenning.“The X70 pipe that we use has gone up 50% in price over the last 18 months but with Marubeni ito-chu Steel as a partner availability is not an issue.“we can have as much pipe as we need given a three-month order period. having been the first cnG group to receive full classification approval, Sea nG now has high hopes it will be the first to win a commercial contract.
