    Positive Communication with Employees Key for Any Company’s Success: An Interview with Maridive Offshore Projects HR Manager, Mostafa Othman

    Monday, 10th May 2021

    The workforce is the core engine that pushes the propulsion systems of any company to work and actually its role is doubled when it comes to the oil and gas industry due to the people-involved offshore and onshore operations that are more like a naval fleet in a national mission. From this vantage point, Egypt Oil and Gas (EOG) was keen to shed the light on the human element while Egypt is celebrating the Labors’ Day on May 1st and conducted this interview.

This pushed many companies to rethink about how to improve their performance to keep their long-term sustainability as well as manage their workforce. The Human Resources (HR) department is the key player in this regard.

    Climate Crisis: A Wild Card in Us-China Relations

    Monday, 10th May 2021

    The US and China, two of the most economically powerful countries in the world, have been going head to head over the years. Under the Trump administration, the US-China ties have been greatly impaired on many fronts, however, now under the recently-elected US President Joe Biden's administration, both sides came back to the table for discussions on the climate issue, which raises the questions if a joint climate action can bring back the relations to normal or rather deepen the tension and further complicate the climate crisis.

    Aster & Fuzzy Logic: New Methods in Hydrocarbon Exploration

    Monday, 10th May 2021

    In the world of exploration and production (E&P), new technologies are always on the rise looking for a way to maximize hydrocarbon production with efficiency. Remote sensing techniques have been used in the oil and gas industry for quite some time, but not as extensive as geological and/or geophysical surveys. A new study presented by Reza Taheri, Assistant Instructional Professor at the University of Wyoming, and Alan Tait, Adjunct Research Fellow, at the University of Monash, provides a new remote sensing technique, specifically Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), to be used in hydrocarbon production.

    Part of the Solution… By Iman Hill, Executive Director at International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP)

    Monday, 10th May 2021

    When the oil and gas industry says that we’re part of the solution to the global need to transition to lower carbon energy sources, we mean it, and we evidence it with our actions. However, many people automatically dismiss anything coming from our industry, or label it “greenwashing”. Others have bigger concerns on their mind. According to the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer, poverty alleviation, improving healthcare systems, and closing the economic and social divide are just some of the issues that people believe need urgent action. And these are all issues that don’t have much to do with oil and gas, right? Well, I disagree.
