About

7–9 December 2020
Virtual Workshop

While it is challenging to translate all aspects of the physical workshop within a virtual environment, we are committed to providing our attendees a unique platform with an immersive event experience to maintain the same depth in knowledge-sharing, engagement and networking, in order to guarantee a comprehensive online experience. Like the physical workshop, the virtual workshop will follow the technical program components such as opening & keynote speech, presentations from industry experts, and moderated discussions. The platform offers an optimized and powerful webpage experience – from the comfort of your home or office:

  • Stage: host all the presentations and discussions
  • Floor: overall floor plan where you can see the workshop schedule, sponsors and arrange a meeting
  • Lounge: attendees can grab a table and continue the discussions with 4 attendees on a table
  • VIP Lounge: One-on-one meetings
  • Live chat features for public discussion and Q&A
  • Links to recorded presentations via SEG on-demand after the workshop

Workshop Details

Oil and gas reservoirs across the globe all share complexity and uncertainty about their static and dynamic aspects, with varying degrees. The reservoir challenges vary along with field life cycle, from development initiation, primary and secondary depletions, to Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). Moreover, carbonate reservoirs are generally very heterogeneous, which implies even greater management and performance predictability challenges.

Integration of reservoir characterization and performance analysis is needed to ensure technically and economically optimal field production and development. To do so, surveillance and monitoring technologies are of significant added value to ensure healthy reservoir performance, identify opportunities, and proactively avoid/limit potential risks from short to long-term. Reservoir surveillance and monitoring technologies are crucial to observe, diagnose and act upon the dynamic indications in reservoir performance such as pressure, temperature, connectivity, sweep/displacement efficiencies, water/gas breakthrough, and many others. 

These technologies cover multi-scale dimensions from near wellbore with few inches scale up to wide field coverage with kilometers scale. For example, pore-scale network modeling and simulation using digital rock approach allow us to understand how the fluid can move in actual rock pore geometry. On the other hand, reservoir monitoring at the well location is a routine operation in cased hole wells based on electromagnetic and resistivity measurements. The depth of investigation in this case is limited to a few inches. These measurements are one dimension in vertical wells. Cross-well electromagnetic and seismic provide 2D and 3D maps of resistivity and porosity in the inter-well space, however, the deployment of those techniques require special well geometry in terms of well spacing and completion. A combination of 3D surface, 3D vertical seismic profiles (VSPs), and cross-well seismic surveying methods are being used to achieve multi-scale geophysical imaging for both site characterization and time-lapse monitoring. Advancements in monitoring technologies include fiber optic technologies such as Distributed Acoustic Sensors (DAS) and Distributed Temperature Sensors (DTS), which are being utilized for monitoring fluid movement in the reservoirs. More efforts are required in the integration of these techniques to unleash the full potential of the monitoring technologies. 

In addition, digitalization and automation based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) will provide a new dimension in predicting reservoir behavior and are expected to play a significant role in enhancing the understanding of reservoir static and dynamic performance. This ultimately will support reservoir recovery optimization and still requires more integration with existing technologies. 

The objective of this workshop is to address reservoir monitoring and surveillance challenges, advancements of technologies, and applications that integrate different data sets of multiscale throughout reservoir life cycle.  “Fit-for-Purpose” and best practices are to be thoroughly addressed in the workshop, along with discussions on what technology is to be utilized, when it should be utilized, how it should be integrated with other outcomes with different scale, and many other factors as guidance for proper surveillance and monitoring technique selection.
