Importance of social development in organizations

Today, business objectives go beyond generating profits for shareholders and the organization itself, since the role of companies has evolved and taken on a more active role in society.

In this sense, companies, in addition to being an economic cell, are a social cell as they are part of communities and are made up of people and for people. For this reason, they cannot remain alien to the localities in which they are located, but must exercise a commitment and responsibility to the citizens and the environment they are going to impact with their management.

In addition, the benefits of active involvement with society are diverse. In the case of companies: they develop their competitive advantage, establish good government relations and build customer loyalty. In the case of the communities, it is important to highlight the generation of jobs, job training, infrastructure maintenance, and above all, an enriching cultural exchange between both parties.

In other words, working in a different territory provides new experiences and knowledge that nurture personal training, as well as the development of empathy based on the acceptance of behavior patterns of other cultures; elimination of prejudices and increased tolerance to new environments; and, of course, mastery of foreign languages and interpretation of different communication codes.

According to the web portals ComunicarSe and ObservatorioRH, some companies that stand out for applying cultural exchange management are the following:

  • DHL Express, present in 220 countries and territories, has employees of 13 different nationalities with the aim of continuing to promote among them the importance of respect, difference, and mutual understanding.
  • The consulting firm Accenture has a diverse board of directors in terms of geographic and gender representation, with people from six countries on four continents and four women.
  • The well-known textile brand, GAP, promotes business resource groups to provide opportunities for cross-cultural learning, relationship building, development events, networking, and volunteering.

In short, by finding ourselves in a different cultural space, new perspectives generate professional and interpersonal relationships based on respect, creating synergies to address common problems. Therefore, at Nakasawa Resources we play an active role in India, thanks to our employees, who expand their comfort zone, developing values such as tolerance and global thinking through cultural exchange.

We keep on achieving success for our clients!

We concluded the first injection phase of the Baghewala field project.  

We continue to work hard and evenly to accompany and lead the success of our customers. On this occasion, we celebrate the completion of the steam injection cycle in the first well of the Baghewala field in Rajasthan; where our operations have been running since April 2022 in the Cyclic Steam Stimulation Operation (CSS) project for Oil India Limited, the second-largest national oil and gas company in India.

Currently, Super Matroid technology is accompanying the project to boost the growth and performance of the Baghewala oilfield, where our team is preparing for the demobilization process and transfer to the second well after 17 days of injection in the BGW-17 well (Baghewala oilfield).

This innovative Nakasawa system optimizes oil recovery throughout the extraction process, thanks to a fully automated process to inject 60 million tons of high-pressure steam into existing wells. It also reduces the environmental impact of conventional OTSGs by closely controlling flue gas emissions.

A key aspect to the success of our operations is that Super Matroid systems are fully portable and compliant with ground transportation regulations, allowing for complete and easy mobilization across equidistant injection points within an oil field and urban roads.

We continue to reap success as a company, this time the good news comes from Nakasawa India Private Limited. Since June 8th, 2022, our team of experts are in the Rajasthan oil field, working on the Cyclic Steam Stimulation Operation (CSS) project for Oil India Limited.

Currently, our Super Matroid technology is on site and in the process of operational preparations to boost the growth and performance of the Baghewala oilfield in Rajasthan. A key aspect of this involves the configuration and connection of equipment to Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems, more commonly referred to as SCADA. In this way, operating parameters can be optimized, alarm conditions can be defined and planned reactions can be planned.

The technical team is also conducting hydrostatic, pressure, and flow tests to obtain IBR certification, which quantifies risk in order to make informed decisions on how, where and when to inspect assets. In India, IBR certification regulates the design, manufacture, and inspection of any boiler. The steam generator is an energy intensive piece of equipment, and its proper design and inspection compromises both safety and life risk.

Hart Energy | Machine Learning and Oil and Gas: A Surprisingly Powerful Combination

Machine Learning has offered novel ways to increase automation, efficiency, and productivity in many sectors – including the oil and gas industry. Its ability to find patterns in huge volumes of data has made machine learning into a highly effective tool, thanks to the amount of information and complexity of the systems involved in the oil and gas industry.

Machine Learning in action

There are many areas that machine learning has been helping the oil and gas business with, including:

  • Enhanced oil recovery (EOR): Machine learning can select optimal values for EOR systems, from water injection rates to steam temperature and more. By carefully changing these factors in real time, it can maximize recovery efforts.
  • Predictive maintenance: By carefully monitoring huge quantities of real-time data on all the connected machinery, machine learning can predict when a part or machine will need maintenance to address problems before they slow or stop production. This improves process efficiency and reduces non-productive times.
  • Geoscience analysis: Machine learning can greatly aid in interpreting all the complex factors involved in underground operations. Tasks that once took geologists hours to accomplish can now be done in mere minutes.
  • Drilling: Machine learning could be a key tool to face problems such as loss of circulation, stuck pipe incidents, excessive torque and drag, low ROP, bit wear, formation damage and borehole instability. The use of workflows and data analytics improves the conventional practices, and minimizes tool failure, and saves money in replacement costs and maintenance. 
  • Incident reporting: On the safety side, machine learning can categorize and track trends in incident reports to speed the process and aid human workers in determining the next steps.

How one company benefited from Machine Learning

In 2019, BP made the jump to machine learning with Azure in an attempt to maximize and estimate its recovery factor (the total amount of oil that can be recovered economically). Entrusting this calculation to machine learning has removed any human bias from the process – something recovery factor analysis has historically been subject to.

Now, rather than having a team go over more than 200 reservoir factors to determine how they all interact and ultimately impact recovery, BP can simply use its machine learning software – saving them time and money.

An improved industry

It goes beyond BP. Shell, Exxon Mobil, TotalEnergies, and many other major oil and gas sector players have all turned machine learning into a valuable asset in their toolboxes. They know that in an increasingly challenging industry environment, companies must embrace the latest innovations and technologies to stay competitive – as must we all.

Hart Energy | EOR Advances: Efficiency, Sustainability and the Future of Oil & Gas

The global trend toward environmentalism has created a growing need for sustainable, cost-effective EOR solutions that can help companies maintain their social license to operate, but few solutions yet satisfy these demands.

Nakasawa Resources found an efficient, profitable solution for thermal EOR (TEOR) in heavy crude oil wells with its Super Matroid Heater (SMH) and Super Matroid Cyclone (SMC), which significantly enhance oil recovery from existing wells. Both were designed with a strong emphasis on efficiency, because Nakasawa Resources believes a “waste not, want not” attitude will be key to ensuring a future for the oil and gas industry, especially as drilling new wells becomes increasingly unpopular among public opinion.

The SMH and SMC leverage their highly efficient steam production technology to significantly boost oil recovery, greatly reduce feedwater usage, increase heat transmission and minimize operating time, all of which work together to maximize profits. Automation and digitization also play an important role here, allowing users to monitor variables and execute commands remotely and in real time through a centralized panel as well as providing the system with the ability to make immediate adjustments to ensure no time goes to waste.

Furthermore, the solutions are designed to be highly corrosion-resistant (using a chrome and molybdenum alloy) and fully mobile, making them much hardier and easier to move between injection points or over roads—another important aspect for enhancing sustainability, as it prevents the need for costly construction and removal projects. 

The SMH and SMC’s results have shown a 315% increase in oil production for wells using this technology. Its high-quality steam (over 95% dry) enhances heat transfer and helps extract every drop of oil available in a well. As there are millions of barrels of oil left in existing wells that have historically been unreachable, this advancement could help prevent the need to drill as many additional wells by using the tremendous volume Nakasawa has already found.

More efficient and sustainable TEOR technologies are very important to ensuring the continued health of the industry. Through advances like these, the increasing energy demands in the years to come can be met.

Energy Capital | Down to the Last Drop: Innovations in Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery (TEOR)

Our world has, in some senses, growing smaller. There are fewer and fewer unexplored corners or new oil fields, and the world’s energy needs are only rising. This makes it increasingly important for companies to extend the lives of their existing reservoirs, extracting every possible drop from each oil field to extract the billions of barrels of already discovered oil that has been impossible to reach – until now.

Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery (TEOR): an opportunity

Traditionally, companies have relied upon primary and secondary extraction to recover oil from wells. Still, according to U.S. Department of Energy studies, this leaves half to three-quarters of the total oil reserve behind. Given this low level of efficiency, companies have turned to enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in recent years.

Unlike the primary and secondary methods, which simply displace oil to the surface or extract what’s already there, EOR relies upon changing the oil’s properties to facilitate significant extraction. There are multiple methods for accomplishing this, generally falling into three main categories: thermal recovery, gas injection, and chemical injection, though there are less common microbial and novel options as well.

Thermal EOR (TEOR) is the primary EOR process for heavy oil extraction and one of the most common in the United States, accounting for over 40% of its EOR production. [1] It seeks to reduce oil viscosity to allow easier flow to the surface by introducing heat on the reservoir level, most commonly by introducing steam.

However, it is not without its challenges. For instance, this process has historically required a relatively large surface footprint, demanded a great deal of water, and resulted in carbon dioxide emissions from the steam generation process – as well as significant capital investments. Its relative newness and high costs meant many companies did not want to use these solutions. But some of this is beginning to change.

TEOR has undergone a transformation, and this process of innovation and improvement is something I am passionate about. Therefore, I believe that reducing startup costs, run time, and feedwater usage are essential to ensuring we maximize recovery in every oil field. Also, limiting the environmental impact of extraction throughout the process.

TEOR Solutions to enhance cost efficiency and environmental impact

Indeed, the name of the game is “efficiency.” The less room a solution requires, the less water it needs. Similarly, the less time it needs to run, the better it will be for total costs and environmental impact. This has been the challenge Nakasawa Resources took on with some of its latest innovations, the Super Matroid Heater and Super Matroid Cyclone. For instance, they seek to turn TEOR into a mobile, cost-efficient, high-efficiency solution.

To that end, it provides a steam quality of at least 95%; uses 12% less feedwater and fuel gas; and increases oil production by over 15% compared to conventional OTSG techniques. In fact, all while saving up to 25% in operational costs and streamlining the entire process.

Though it may not sound imperative, steam is at the core of many TEOR solutions. So, any improvements in its usage cascade throughout the project. Higher quality steam can result in significant improvements to crude oil production and substantial reductions in feedwater usage. Modern solutions even avoid generating waste or effluents that could damage the local environment. Particularly, where steam injection operations are performed and reduce greenhouse gasses’ concentration.

Efficiency, optimization, and environmental focus are all critical for ensuring the energy industry can meet the growing global energy demands. All of this, while retaining its social license to operate. It is no longer enough to rely on primary and secondary extraction or dismiss environmental concerns. Today’s energy industry needs to be as efficient and green as possible. Thus, that is what the latest TEOR solutions can help companies do. In brief, it is time for us to stop compromising. Also, to make the most of the oil fields we have, down to the last drop.

Energy Capital | Enhanced oil recovery and new international business opportunities

In an interview with Energy Capital, Jose Wilfredo Molina president and founder of Nakasawa Resources talks with us about the company’s Enhanced Thermal Oil Recovery (EOR) solutions; the new Super Matroid Heater, and the Super Matroid Cyclone. Besides, Mr. Molina shares with us the benefits of Nakasawa’s recent partnership with ENERPROGROUP to develop more international business opportunities.

Energy Capital – Could you tell us about Nakasawa Resources’ Enhanced Thermal Oil Recovery (EOR) process?

JOSE WILFREDO MOLINA – Nakasawa Resources has designed a solution that increases efficiency and lowers operating costs by using steam injection. Nakasawa’s latest thermal enhanced oil recovery (TEOR) innovations, the Super Matroid Heater (SMH) and Super Matroid Cyclone (SMC); allow for increased heat transfer to the reservoir and greater thermal efficiency by improving surface- and reservoir-level steam quality to increase reservoir productivity. This innovative oil recovery technique ensures increased profit from produced oil. In fact, while using less feedwater, resulting in higher overall value projections.

The SMH and SMC involve controlled condensate separation and remixing with a sprinkler mixer; using automated processes and tools like automatic control valves to obtain steam with a quality of at least 95%. This means there is no loss of condensate, and the total mass goes to the system outlet and injection point.

These systems can operate with feedwater with high total dissolved solids (TDS up to 10,000 ppm) without losing water condensate or thermal energy in the saturated condensate. It will continue to produce steam with a quality of at least 95%; making steam injection with the SMH and SMC an efficient and very profitable EOR process.

Both the SMH and SMC can operate in Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) projects; where they increase the recovery factor of heavy crude oil reservoirs by delivering high-quality steam to the bottom of the wells. Both solutions can also work in Continuous Steam Injection (CSI) projects, such as multiple or single array CSI and SW-SAGD/SAGD; HASD.

EC – How is this process different from other upstream technologies used in the sector?

JWM – Developed in line with its quest to reduce carbon emissions by increasing production, Nakasawa Resources has developed the cutting-edge steam generation technology, the Super Matroid Heater (SMH) and Super Matroid Cyclone (SMC), to offer the following unique benefits: Steam with quality at or above 95%about 12% less water consumption, over fifteen percent increase in oil production compared to conventional OTSG techniques; and up to 25% savings in operational costs

Additionally, the SMH and SMC systems are completely portable, complying with land transportation regulations. This allows them to easily move between equidistant injection points within an oil field or over urban roads.

One key differentiator in the implementation of SMH technology is the service that the company offersNakasawa Resources ensures its client success by building a technical alliance that starts with project strategic design. Also, it continues through its implementation, maintenance, and monitoring. Furthermore, Nakasawa always adapts to clients’ financial needs. For instance, working to help them access the SMH technology that can further their TEOR project development.

Moreover, through its Global Steam Injection Center, Nakasawa Resources provides full EOR project implementation services. For instance, including the human resources and consumables needed to ensure successful EOR. In fact, in both new and mature heavy oil wells.

EC – In this regard, could you tell us about the Super Matroid Heater and the Super Matroid Cyclone?

JWM – Nakasawa Resources has two TEOR solutions available, designed to fit differing client needs.

  • The Super Matroid Heater is a complete system, dedicated to generating and injecting high-quality steam into oil wells. Its advanced technology encourages additional oil production, reduces costs, and decreases operating time through a more sustainable, and thus a more profitable, process.
  • The Super Matroid Cyclone is available for customers who already have a conventional once-through steam generator (OTSG) but are looking to boost their productivity. The technology implemented in the SMC can be adapted to any conventional OTSG and will guarantee the same results as the SMH.

Both technologies dedicate to generating and injecting high-quality steam into oil wells. Therefore, this encourages additional oil production, reduces costs, and decreases operating time, resulting in a more sustainable and profitable process.

EC – How is this technology helping Nakasawa Resources advance its environmental and sustainability goals?

JWM – Indeed, Nakasawa’s Super Matroid technology aligns with our vision of a sustainable future. With the SMH, we seek to reduce environmental impacts while optimizing oil production. Besides, this system helps contain the negative impact of conventional OTSGs through strict combustion gas emissions controls, reducing their concentration. Unlike a conventional stream separator, which is installed at the steam discharge line’s outlet, there is no loss of condensate or thermal energy with Super Matroid technology. This uses up to 12% less feedwater and combustible gas, thus enhancing sustainability.

This excellent advantage and environmental contribution not only guarantees operational savings; but also reductions in combustible gas and treated water supplies. In addition, the innovative SMH and SMC systems do not generate waste. Also, effluents could damage the environment near the steam injection operations. Lastly, optimizing oil recovery extends reservoir life cycles; minimizes environmental impact, and ensures a more profitable project in a socially responsible way.

EC – In what ways the recent partnership with ENERPROGROUP will help Nakasawa develop international business opportunities?

JWM – The two-year partnership will allow Nakasawa Resources to enhance its offerings in integrated technical services. Also, its EOR project portfolios in all the markets where ENERPROGROUP operates, specifically Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and Uzbekistan. In fact, the official agreement grants ENERPROGROUP the right to act as Nakasawa Resources’ exclusive agent in these four countries.

This collaboration will also help continue driving awareness of Nakasawa’s Global Steam Injection Center, allowing companies worldwide to benefit from our wide range of services and products. This includes offerings such as reservoir analysis, variable monitoring, and control; SMH installation; and oil production optimization, as well as many others.

EC – What areas will this partnership comprehend?

JWM – The alliance between the two companies represents a step toward significant technological advances in the industry, specifically in TEOR. Therefore, it will allow both companies to enhance their offerings in integrated technical services and EOR project portfolios.

The partnership will focus primarily on offering oil companies high-quality EOR technology that will make their processes more efficient and profitable by extending the life of mature oil reservoirs and recovering already discovered resources that were previously out of reach.

Accordingly, the two companies will collaborate on integrated projects in existing ENERPROGROUP territories, offering Nakasawa Resources services such as:

  • Drilling and completion
  • Surface facilities
  • Steam injection services
  • Operations, surveillance, and maintenance
