2018 SEG Reservoir Geophysics Workshop

5-7 August 2018 | Daqing Oilfield, China


5-7 August 2018
Daqing Oilfield

The workshop, taking place at the pioneer of the Chinese oil industry, the Daqing Oilfield, will provide the latest research results in rock physics and reservoir geophysics. As the entire oil industry moves from volume maximization to value optimization, geophysics plays a key role in detailed characterization and description of reservoir rock and fluid properties, not only in oil bearing rocks but also in surrounding overburden and underburden. Value optimization includes monetary value (revenue and cost), enhanced oil recovery over time (e.g., pressure maintenance and EOR), and environmental mitigation approaches (e.g., subsidence, aquafer protection, and surface pollution prevention). There is a paradigm shift in the industry, and reservoir geophysics, including rock physics, needs to be adapted to the new industry norm. Hence this workshop kick starts a new theme for discussions among geophysicists worldwide: optimize asset value and mitigate any environmental impact.

The organizing committee invites submission of expanded abstracts in the following technical areas:

  1. Data Acquisition for Reservoir Characterization
  2. VSP for Reservoir Property Extraction
  3. Crosswell Seismic Applications
  4. Reservoir Rock Physics and Reservoir Geomechanics
  5. Microseismic Applications
  6. 4D Seismic Monitoring of Reservoir Production
  7. Seismic Guided Drilling and Seismic While Drilling for Horizontal Wells
  8. Geophysics for Value Enhancement: Surface and Subsurface
  9. Reservoir Description Techniques
  10. Reservoir Modeling and Inversion
  11. Responsible Reservoir Development Practices
  12. Data Integration Techniques for Improving Recovery
