Web Event: Mature Oil Fields

Tayfun Babadagli, SPE Distinguished Lecturer, will conduct a web event on 20 May on "Development of Mature Oil Fields: Enhanced Oil Recovery Option." In this presentation, after the definition of a mature oil field, the different aspects of mature field development are outlined. The first issue covered is the estimation of reserves focusing on the determination of the amount and location of the residual oil after primary and secondary recovery using field, log, and core data. A comparative analysis of these data collection tools and techniques will be provided. Users can choose from a morning or evening session.

SPE Technical Report: Calculation of Worst-Case Discharge (WCD)

Approved by the SPE Board of Directors in March, this report documents the consensus from the SPE Summit held in March 2014. Topics covered in the technical report include reservoir properties, inflow modeling, outflow modeling, total volume, special cases, and reporting. Deterministic methods are proposed because of the wording of regulations and requirements for detailed well design and response planning, but parametric sensitivity analysis is recommended. All reservoir properties should be best-estimate success-case values based on sound geology, geophysics, and engineering judgment. Future improvements could include flow correlations for high rates in large-diameter pipes, sonic velocity effects, and probabilistic methods. For full details, read SPE-174705-TR.

Web Event: Fluids for Fracturing Petroleum Reservoirs

Join Ghaithan Al-Muntasheri on 23 June for the web event "Fluids for Fracturing Petroleum Reservoirs." This presentation will discuss the various existing technologies used for HF fluids. The webinar will also shed light on the current challenges that the industry faces and help attendees draw broad lines on the current research themes in this area.
