1–3 April 2019
As the demand for hydrocarbon continues to grow, integrated reservoir characterization, clastics, and carbonates are becoming increasingly more important. This workshop will discuss the Reservoir Characterization integration workflows that combine subsurface information, production data, analytical methods, and technology under one platform. It will address the current challenges in exploration and production of different types of reservoirs, including new tools and techniques that may be required in the future. The goal is to provide participants with a toolbox of ideas, thoughts, potential solutions for the current challenges, and a fresh perspective for the future developments in reservoir characterization.
SEG Middle East
Monday, 1 April
Registration, morning and afternoon sessions
Tuesday, 2 April
Registration, morning and afternoon sessions
Wednesday, 3 April
Morning and afternoon sessions
Who should attend?
Geoscientists, petroleum & reservoir engineers, geomechanics engineers, data scientists and other relevant disciplines from industry and academia.
The format of the workshop will feature presentations by invited key experts in their field to share their experiences. The workshop will serve as a forum for open and extended discussions among the participants.
Ten sessions (three days). We aim for one keynote speaker per session, with a closing session at the end of the workshop to serve as the outlook going forward. The 15-minute oral presentations will be followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session, a 30-minute discussion session is planned. The objective of this session is to allow participants the opportunity to discuss in detail, learn from each other what has worked effectively, and debate the issues and challenges faced during daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 30 minutes.
Poster presentations will be scheduled so as to give ample time to the delegates to discuss with the poster’s author(s) the topic of the poster. Posters will be displayed for viewing during coffee and session breaks.
