Recognising the global importance and unique challenges of Middle Eastern carbonate reservoirs, this workshop will focus its attention on identifying issues and solving problems and meeting challenges specific to these reservoirs. Themes of the workshop will include:
The primary objective of the workshop is to bring together geoscientists, petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists, and reservoir and production engineers, and others that work in the Middle East to share ideas and best practices. The workshop will seek to create an environment that instigates and enables both informal and direct communication among technology users and providers who share an interest in addressing challenges specific to Middle East reservoirs.
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 course attendee's responsibility to obtain their own visa. SPE cannot issue the visa nor can we guarantee it will be obtained.
Three 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 Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learnt. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.
Attendees will be assigned to discussion groups on a random basis for a breakout session to maximise the opportunity to interact with other participants.
The Steering Committee encourages registrations from professionals who are able to prepare and present a poster on a relevant project. For further details kindly contact Aswathy Prathap at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 workshop 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.
