Workshop Overview

Theme: Enhanced Oil Recovery in Mature Fields & Tight Reservoir and Deep Reservoir Characterization and Evaluation

As global demand for energy rises and as hydrocarbon basins mature to a point of few or no remaining untested big structures, one of the main challenges facing explorationists and producer is how to continue being creative and innovative in order to successfully push back the limits of the hydrocarbon exploration and production. There is an increasing need to look at new thematic in exploration of the tight formation and in field development challenges to explore in new ways and leveraging new technologies.

This workshop aims to highlight new inroads on how we can ‘Move Forward by Exploring Differently’ particularly through sharing relevant learning on best practices in exploration and production (e.g. workflows, techniques, back to basic geology), lessons learned from failure cases (exploration, production, technologies), innovative technology applications (e.g. geophysics, remote sensing) and examples of where making use of old data with new processes made a difference (e.g. a new play entry). 

Workshop Objectives

Our key objective is to meet worldwide experts from different disciplines, (geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering), in the oil and gas industry in order to share their knowledge and experience to identify potential challenges, solutions and the best practices applicable to the exploration of the tight formation ant to field development challenges of the new or mature fields; this will be supported by presentations of successful case studies and the sharing of lessons learned through technical discussions, communication and networking.

Exploration Geologists, Specialist Geologists, Reservoir Engineers, Geomaticians, Geophysicists, Seismic Interpreters and the likes are invited to attend this workshop where there will be dedicated time for discussions, debates and to brainstorm issues presented during each session. The objective is to give everyone the opportunity to interact, exchange ideas and to engage in finding practical solutions to issues in the field of exploration of tight sand formation and field development challenges.

We welcome abstracts from academia and industry and you are invited to submit papers that showcase the above.
