This workshop will build on the results and feedback of the successful 2014 ‘Exploiting Deep Gas Resources through Advanced Geophysical Technology’ workshop. It will focus on the hydrocarbon systems of deep reservoirs, primarily gas bearing. We will discuss exploration objectives, approaches and strategy, and examine the challenges related to imaging and characterization. The state-of-the-art technologies in seismic and non-seismic data acquisition, processing, and interpretation shall be addressed in several case studies.
We will explore the integration of multi-disciplines such as geology, geophysics, rock physics, formation evaluation, etc. In addition, drilling challenges and development strategies as well as mitigating risks and maximizing the efficiency of the exploration development cycle will be addressed.
The workshop is designed for three days of interactive events with top quality technical presentations carefully selected to stimulate discussions.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is an art and civilization museum, located in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The museum was established on 8 November 2017. It is part of a thirty-year agreement between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government. The museum is located in the Saadiyat Island Cultural District. It is approximately 24,000 square metres (260,000 sq ft) in size, with 8,000 square metres (86,000 sq ft) of galleries, making it the largest art museum in the Arabian peninsula. The final cost of the construction is expected to be about €600 million. In addition, US$525 million was paid by Abu Dhabi to be associated with the Louvre name, and an additional US$747 million will be paid in exchange for art loans, special exhibitions and management advice.
Artworks from around the world are showcased at the museum, with particular focus placed upon bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art.
Who should attend?
Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, exploration managers, reservoir and drilling engineers.
The format of the workshop will feature presentations by invited key experts in their fields who will share their experiences. The workshop will serve as a unique opportunity to have open and extended discussions among the participants.
11 sessions (3 days). We will have one keynote speaker per day with a closing session at the end of the workshop to serve as the outlook going forward. The oral presentations are comprised of 20-minute talks followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session, a 45-minute discussion session is planned. The objective of this session is to allow participants to discuss in detail and learn from each other what has worked for them and debate the issues and challenges facing them during their daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 45 minutes.
