Third EAGE Workshop on Naturally Fractured Reservoirs

5 - 7 February
Muscat, Oman
Call for papers

EAGE is honored to announce the Keynote Speakers:

Kevin Bisdom (Shell)

Kevin Bisdom is a research geomechanicist at Shell in Amsterdam (CO2 storage and reservoir containment). He holds a PhD in Applied Geology (Delft University of Technology). Research interests include numerical modelling of stress, aperture and flow through fractured media and integrating outcrop studies with subsurface models.


Steve Laubach (The University of Texas at Austin)

Senior Research Scientist. Research includes structural diagenesis, fundamentals of fracture development in rock, fractured and unconventional reservoirs, natural fracture/hydraulic fracture interaction, and microstructural methods in structural geology. Laubach founded and leads the Fracture Research and Application Consortium, and supervises graduate student research in structural geology in the Jackson School of Geosciences.


Hussein Hoteit (KAUST)

Hussein Hoteit is Associate Professor in Reservoir Engineering at Ali I. Al-Naimi Petroleum Engineering Research Center (ANPERC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Before joining KAUST, Dr. Hoteit worked for ConocoPhillips and Chevron oil companies. He has about 15 years of cumulative experience in reservoir engineering where he worked in projects related to Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery, miscible CO2 flood, steam injection, and reservoir simulation development. Dr. Hoteit has conducted research in different areas such as modeling multi-phase flow in naturally fractured reservoirs, modeling molecular diffusion and gas-oil interaction in fractured reservoirs, unconventional plays, improved SAGD, thermodynamic phase behavior, wax deposition in pipelines and other area related to discretization methods and gridding. Dr. Hoteit was selected as an SPE DL, distinguished lecturer, in 2009 and has earned several SPE awards. He is an Associate Editor for SPE Journal since 2006.
