Fourth EAGE Borehole Geophysics Workshop
Building on the success and growing interest of the past Borehole Geophysics workshops, EAGE would like to invite you to the fourth in this series, scheduled from 19-22 November 2017.
For many decades, wireline and more recently, LWD logging of boreholes has provided geophysical data that are fundamental to the understanding of reservoir behavior. Modern techniques have enabled measurements in new, more challenging environments and this mass of data has meant that, with an integrated approach to interpretation, operating companies can gain a far greater understanding of reservoir behavior than ever before.
However, the current upheaval in the oil market has brought the economics of borehole data acquisition and interpretation into sharp focus. Borehole geophysics continues to be an important part of many exploration strategies but operating companies are being forced to try to maximize the value of their data with significantly reduced budgets, headcount and expertise.
The aim of this workshop is to try to capture the current state of borehole geophysics technology, to share advances in techniques, case studies and lessons learned. The workshop will be open to anyone with a role or interest in borehole geophysics, including academics, operators and contractors and it is hoped that experience and knowledge will be readily shared in order to advance this important discipline as part of a portfolio of available reservoir technologies.
The workshop will build on the successful format used previously: a series of technical sessions over three days where key players in this discipline from around the globe have the opportunity to showcase their work, including case-studies, technical breakthroughs and developments in acquisition equipment and techniques used to gather borehole data. As well as oral presentations, poster submissions will be encouraged and space will be available for a small number of selected companies to display their products and services. There will be ample time to meet with old friends and colleagues and to forge new friendships. A social program will be arranged to allow visitors to enjoy what Abu Dhabi has to offer.
