2017 SEG Carbonate Reservoir E&P Workshop

22-24 October 2017 | Chengdu, China

Call for abstracts has been extended to 15 September


22-24 October 2017
Chengdu, China

The oil and gas production of global carbonate reservoirs accounts for about 60% of the total production, occupying an extremely significant position in the oil and gas production of the world. Carbonate reservoirs, including fractured limestone, reef-shoal, karstification, and dolomite, are very difficult to explore and exploit. Geophysical technology is playing an increasingly important role in the exploration and development of carbonate reservoirs. In recent years, although much progress has been made in rock physics, seismic wave propagation mechanism, deep seismic signal processing, reservoir evaluation, hydrocarbon detection and so on, there are still a lot of challenges to face. This workshop aims to exchange geophysical theories, methods, and examples of the exploration and development of carbonate reservoirs, to discuss technical problems in practical applications, and to promote technological progress.

The workshop will be held by SEG and supported by Southwest Oil & Gas Field Company, Petrochina. The meeting will be held from 22-24 October 2017 in Chengdu, Sichuan, China and the Call for Abstracts opens on 19 June 2017. The subjects for abstract submission include:

  1. Rock physics and simulation of carbonate reservoirs
  2. Seismic data acquisition and processing of carbonate reservoirs
  3. Reservoir prediction and hydrocarbon detection of reef-shoal
  4. Reservoir prediction and hydrocarbon detection of karstification
  5. Reservoir prediction and hydrocarbon detection of dolomite
  6. Exploitation geophysics of carbonate reservoirs
  7. Characterization of carbonate reservoir
  8. Borehole geophysics
