Novel Techniques for Reservoir Modeling

4-9 November :: Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

About this forum

This forum explores the use of pragmatic modeling tools for various recovery mechanisms, including primary, secondary, and tertiary. Additionally, it will investigate the new alternatives to grid-based simulations in estimating the reserves and recovery profiles in tight oil and gas reservoirs.

To achieve both short- and long-term reservoir modeling objectives, data gathering, interpretation, and the adoption of alternative modeling tools are becoming business critical. Introspective views of how the reservoir engineering community can make a business case to bolster their alternative modeling practices will be explored by the leading industry experts in various sessions.

What is a Forum?

SPE Forums offer an exclusive opportunity to interact with innovators, foremost professionals and leading technologists. The objective is to create a collaborative, idea-generating forum that stimulates new ideas and innovation about future challenges facing the E&P industry.
