Innovation, reinvention and disruption: from oil
David Lawrence retired from Shell in 2013 after a global career in energy spanning over 30 years. He is one of very few in the energy industry who has first hand experience in academia, government and industry, has worked in research, oil, gas, renewables, coal and nuclear energy and has engaged with stakeholders from major investment banks to private equity to shareholders, NGOs, government agencies, communities, international and national oil companies, service companies, and independents. After retirement from Shell, Lawrence founded Lawrence Energy Group LLC, investing In people, energy and ideas. He writes and speaks frequently on topics related to the energy transition and recently posted the following article on LinkedIn:

New plays around the world continue to shake up the oil and gas mix. The same types of breakthroughs are happening on other new energy fronts from renewables to nuclear to CCS. The major petroleum basins of the world reinvent themselves many times. Creaming curves are disrupted by new plays, new ideas, new technologies, & new generations of geoscientists, engineers and operators. The Gulf of Mexico has been a prime example -the development of the amplitude play, the early step out beyond the shelf into Deepwater, the development of major DW Hubs opening corridors of tieback opportunities, new seismic imaging technologies, the subsalt, deep Miocene & Paleogene plays, Perdido and the EGOM Norphlet. New plays bring remarkable engineering, operational & cost breakthroughs: TLPs, spars, compliant towers, semi-subs; FPSO’s, subsea completion & tie-backs, extended reach & ultradeep drilling etc etc.

Congratulations & thanks to all those who have contributed to the ongoing energy revolution of the Deepwater in the Gulf of Mexico and in DW basins around the world as well as to those who are contributing to the energy revolution in renewables and unconventionals.
