2019 SEG Fractured Reservoir & Unconventional Resources Forum: Prospects and Challenges in the Era of Big Data

1–3 September 2019 | Lanzhou, China

About

1–3 September 2019
Lanzhou, China

Oil and gas from fractured and unconventional reservoirs play an increasingly important role in global hydrocarbon supply. The exploration and development of these reservoirs have encountered some bottlenecks and have provided great challenges to conventional technologies, which creates numerous opportunities for geoscientists and engineers to develop new concepts and innovative solutions. 

To promote and facilitate technology development in these areas, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) jointly with Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development-Northwest (NWGI), Petrochina will hold the 2019 SEG Fractured Reservoir & Unconventional Resources Forum: Prospects and Challenges in the Era of Big Data on 1-3 September 2019 in Lanzhou, China. The forum will focus on technology development of fractured and unconventional resources, and will invite top experts from China and across the world to share knowledge, insights, and experiences, and to spark new ideas around the following topics: 

  • Seismic processing methods for fractured and unconventional reservoirs
  • Theory and methods for fractured and unconventional reservoir detection
  • High resolution fluid identification methods
  • Characterization methods for fractured and unconventional reservoirs
  • Application potential of AI
  • Case Studies
