2024 SEG 1st Tarim Ultra-Deep Oil & Gas Exploration Technology Workshop


3–5 June 2024
Korla, China

In recent years, with continuous improvements in ultra-deep oil and gas exploration theory and technology, domestic onshore ultra-deep oil and gas exploration has continued to make breakthroughs, providing an important replacement field for CNPC’s upstream business development and large-scale increase of reserves and production. The proven oil and gas reserves in ultra-deep reservoirs in Tarim Basin account for more than 50% of the proven oil and gas in ultra-deep reservoirs in China, and Tarim has become the main field for onshore ultra-deep exploration in China. This is not only due to the innovation of ultra-deep oil and gas geological theory, but also due to the breakthrough of ultra-deep geophysical technology.

Tarim ultra deep oil and gas exploration faces many challenges: accurate imaging of steeply ultra-deep structures in complex mountains; better recovery of weak signals; enhanced imaging resolution in the ultra-deep subsalt of large desert areas; ultra-deep imaging in thick loess covered areas and other problems restricts the process and economic development of ultra-deep oil and gas exploration in basin. Therefore, there is an urgent need to study theoretical technologies suitable for ultra-deep geophysical acquisition, weak signal processing and imaging, as well as ultra-deep reservoir prediction and fluid identification under different geological conditions. Meanwhile, it is necessary to analyze, summarize & enrich the development of ultra-deep oil and gas geophysical exploration technology through technical events, promote major theoretical innovation of ultra-deep oil and gas geophysical exploration, to guide and develop ultra-deep oil and gas exploration in Tarim Basin.
