Effective reservoir management is crucial to meeting world energy demands and achieving ultimate recovery targets. As such, the professionals responsible for reservoir management play a critical role in designing and implementing reservoir management strategies and plans with the common objective of enhancing oil and gas production while optimising recovery in the most cost effective manner. Proper execution of reservoir management results in reduced uncertainties, increased subsurface understanding, optimised conditions, and ultimately can ensure success. Increasing well and reservoir complexities coupled with higher production and recovery expectations place additional demands on successful execution of conventional reservoir management practices as well as innovations introducing new techniques and technologies, thus reshaping reservoir management practices.
This workshop will highlight best practices in managing and monitoring reservoir performance and will welcome experienced practitioners to discuss key learnings, experiences, innovations, and future needs.
The objective of this workshop is to address the role and impact of reservoir management practices and guidelines on reservoir performance and optimum oil and gas recovery. Additionally, innovative methodologies to overcome challenges encountered in existing and new developments will be explored by sharing ideas and solutions based on world wide experience. The workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss proven field practices and recommendations for best reservoir management strategies and surveillance techniques.
Effective reservoir management relies upon multiple disciplines and roles working collaboratively for effective implemention of reservoir management plans. The workshop targets professionals with distinguished experience in geosciences, reservoir engineering, production engineering, production operations, and data management.
SPE Middle East, North Africa, and India will assist in providing a visa invitation letter, upon request in writing, to confirmed registrants after receiving full payment of registration fees. Visa invitation letters take five days to issue from the date of request and it is the delegate's responsibility to obtain their own visa. SPE cannot issue the visa nor can we guarantee it will be obtained.
Two (2) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended breakout sessions and Q&A periods. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learnt.
Attendees will be assigned to discussion groups on a random basis for the breakout sessions to maximise the opportunity to interact with other participants.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Steering Committee encourages attendance from those who can contribute to the workshop most effectively either in discussions or with posters. A mix of attendees in terms of geographic origin, companies, and disciplines will be encouraged.
In keeping with ATW objectives and the SPE mission, commercialism in posters or presentations will not be permitted. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter and others involved in the work.
All attendees will receive an attendance certificate attesting to their participation in the workshop. This certificate will be provided in exchange for a completed Workshop Questionnaire.
Attendees at this workshop qualify for SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU) at the rate of 0.1 CEU per hour of the workshop.
