SEG ROI Forum at NAPE Summit:
E&P Technologies that deliver a solid ROI ($ Return)

12 February 2019 | Houston, TX

About

12 February 2019
Houston, TX USA

This one-day forum will focus on technologies that deliver solid return-on-investment (ROI) from actual practitioners in the field, mostly in areas of depth migration, reservoir characterization, induced seismicity, and emerging technologies (machine learning, distributed acoustic sensing, etc.).

In today’s integrated world, this forum will be of interest to geoscientists, engineers, and the capital provider community.

Forum Topics

Chosen geoscience-oriented themes include:

  • Depth Migration – What are some processing challenges present in the unconventional plays, and how might depth migration help?  Case examples of Permian and Oklahoma Basin.
     
  • Reservoir Characterization – Integrated case studies demonstrating how seismic can aid in characterizing reservoirs in key basins. What return-on-investment can this provide for development and exploration?

    “From actual case studies, get ideas on how you can apply ROI-delivering technologies to increase the value of your deal.” – Allen Gilmer
     
  • Induced Seismicity – The increasing seismicity in oil and gas producing fields of the United States and Canada appears to be related to large volumes of injected fluid.  The goal of the discussion is to provide geological, seismological, and engineering framework to better evaluate and minimize seismic activity.
     
  • Emerging Technologies – How can machine learning make an impact to operations today?  Additionally, learn about recent applications of fiber optic cable to seismic imaging and rock properties analysis.

Objective

The purpose of this exercise is to champion the value and practice of understanding the cost and quantifying the benefit of oilfield technologies. By doing so, we create an environment of “technology expansion” and “technology adoption” in an industry that has historically survived by cutting investment in technology during inevitable down times. Presenting technology from an ROI perspective bridges the communications gap between the technical professional and finance and establishes appropriate key performance indicators by which to measure the adoption of technology. SEG has long been a leader in innovative technology and this effort acts as a necessary supplement to aid in its quick adoption of failure.
