IPTC EXCELLENCE IN PROJECT INTEGRATION AWARD

Recognise an Outstanding Industry Project

Recognise an Outstanding Industry Project

As the upstream oil and gas industry moves towards increasingly complex and capital intensive projects, we must challenge our conventional practices. It is critical that lessons are shared from successfully integrated projects that embody excellence. The IPTC committees and sponsoring societies believe in highlighting projects above USD 500 million that have demonstrated distinction throughout the entire exploration and production value chain.

The IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award is given to a project that adds value to the industry and exemplified strong teamwork, solid geoscience knowledge, reservoir and production engineering acumen, determined and watchful construction, and outstanding facilities engineering practices. Equally important, a successful project requires a pervasive culture of HSE, and a positive impact on the communities it affects. 

Nomination Deadline: 30 June 2022

Criteria

Project Elements (15%)

  • Full value chain from exploration to delivery
  • Delivery of elements will be looked at for green field projects
  • Degree of complexity will be assessed for brownfield projects

Project Impact (20%)

  • Significance of the impact to the industry, rather than the scale of the project
  • Local, regional or international impact on value added basis rather than scale basis

Use of New Technologies (15%)

  • Degree of the application of new technologies
  • Fit for purpose new technology application has the advantage rather than over-engineered or extravagant application

Subsurface, Geoscience and Surface Integration Aspects (15%)

  • Smart integration methods
  • Not to be confused with Criteria No 1: Project Elements

HSE (10%)

  • Lag indicator performance management system efforts
  • Main safety challenges
  • Quality assurance

Decarbonisation (10%)

  • Project carbon emission footprint mitigation

Project Execution (15%)

  • Budget, timing challenges, etc.

Special Note

Only completed project above USD500 million are to be considered. Projects must be completed (first or incremental gas or oil production) in the past 5 years and six months from the scheduled conference date (i.e. qualification period is 28 February 2017 to 28 August 2022). Project nominations will remain active for future IPTC events, until the project nomination no longer matches the qualification period.

Previous Award Recipients 

Ichthys LNG by INPEX

Ichthys LNG by INPEX

Recipient of the 13th IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award

Ichthys LNG is ranked among the most significant oil and gas projects in the world. The energy development is a joint venture between INPEX group companies (the Operator), major partner Total, and the Australian subsidiaries of CPC Corporation Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric Power, JERA and Toho Gas.

A Final Investment Decision for Ichthys LNG was reached in 2012 and production commenced in July 2018.

Ichthys LNG is expected to produce 8.9 million tonnes of LNG and 1.65 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with more than 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

It is one of the few energy projects worldwide to incorporate the whole chain of development and production: subsea, offshore, pipeline and onshore.

Gas and condensate from the Ichthys Field will be exported to onshore facilities for processing near Darwin via an 890-kilometre pipeline. Most condensate is directly shipped to global markets from a floating production, storage and offloading facility permanently moored near the Ichthys Field in the Browse Basin.

Novy Port by Gazprom Neft

Novy Port by Gazprom Neft

Recipient of the 12th IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award 

The Novoportovskoye oil and gas condensate field is one of the first hydrocarbon fields discovered on the Yamal Peninsula. The fact that Novoportovskoye contains significant oil and gas reserves was proven back in 1964, yet the absence of transport infrastructure as well as the complex geology have long remained insurmountable obstacles to start developing it on a full-field basis.

Since 2012, the Project Operator has been a Gazprom Neft subsidiary (Gazpromneft Yamal LLC).

After the Arctic Gate offshore terminal was put into operation, oil transportation is year-round. To service the Project, CPY has created its own tanker fleet. Oil is delivered to consumers via the Northern Sea Route by tankers escorted by icebreakers.

The field moved into full-field development in 2016. Currently, the field is being actively drilled and is reaching its peak oil production.

Manifa by Saudi Aramco

Manifa by Saudi Aramco

Recipient of the 11th IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award 

Off the North East Coast of Saudi Arabia lies one of the world’s biggest oilfields called Manifa. Hidden beneath the surface of Manifa is a delicate habitat of sea grass and coral reef. The development of Manifa field by preserving fragile marine environment has been one of the biggest engineering projects in history. In a ground breaking design, 27 man-made islands were constructed connected with 41 km of causeway.  Over 4 million man hours were spent on the detailed design phase alone. Extended reach wells were drilled to tap into reserves at extreme distances from wells on the surface. Production targets were achieved ahead of schedule without compromising safety or the environment. With the successful development of Manifa, Saudi Arabia’s position as the world’s premier oil producer is ensured well into the future and some of the Kingdom’s most precious habitat has been preserved for generations to come.
