SPE/EAGE Synergy of Static and Dynamic Modeling

18 – 20 March 2014

Moscow, Russia | Aerostar Hotel

About this Workshop

SPE and EAGE have joined together for the third time since 2010 to conduct this workshop on synergy of static and dynamic modeling. Modeling of oil and gas plays a key role in reservoir description and in the understanding the fluid flow in the reservoir. Nowadays, the hydrocarbon reserve estimation and development planning are carried out by constructing static and dynamic models. The modeling process includes several stages: geophysics, geology, petrophysics, and reservoir engineering. Traditionally, each stage is performed sequentially with a linear knowledge transform between the various stages. This conveyor belt-like approach sometimes exhibits problems such as inconsistencies in the objectives, loose feedback loops, upscaling, and ignoring of different modeling resolutions. This can result in inconsistent static and dynamic models that eventually affect the data credibility and, most importantly, the predictability of the model. Thus, the oil and gas industry needs to further improve integrating modeling processes by improving the process and selecting the appropriate strategy, as well as modifying the organizations involved and implementing the right approach to training.

Objectives and Deliverables

  1. Reservoir Modeling Overview and Model Appraisal: OIP Estimation and Field Development
  2. Recent Developments in Static and Dynamic Modeling
  3. Corporate Modeling Strategies: Views and Ideas
  4. Review of Existing Modeling Process and Maximization Approaches
  5. Modeling Synergy of Improved Organization, Training and Technologies: Views and Ideas

Who Should Attend

The workshop is a limited attendance meeting for up to 100 people. It is designed for professionals in the oil and gas industry who are involved in development of static and dynamic models as well as application of modeling results. This workshop should be of particular interest to the following specialists:

  • Logging engineers
  • Geologists
  • Petrophysists
  • Reservoir modeling engineers
  • Reservoir engineers
  • Field development planning specialists

Workshop Guidelines

Information for presenters

If you are interested to be a speaker at the workshop, please send your presentation abstract (2-3 paragraphs with description of nature and scope of work, possible applications and summary of results or technical contributions) to Victoria Rachinskaya at vrachinskaya@spe.org before March 1. Your abstract will be reviewed by the Program Committee to consider its acceptance for the Workshop Program.
The following information is required for each abstract:

  • Participant’s name, Company name
  • Contact details: phone number, address, e-mail address
  • Session’s title
  • Title of your presentation

The preference will be given to presentations that precisely correspond to the above listed themes and demonstrate the most illustrative cases providing the combination of experience and innovations, application of traditional and advanced practices.

Poster session

In addition to the scheduled presentations, the Programme Committee will incorporate a poster presentation session within this Workshop. The poster session will allow participants an opportunity to present additional new ideas to those interested. The applicants willing to participate in the poster session shall contact Victoria Rachinskaya (SPE Moscow office) at vrachinskaya@spe.org to get the requirements for poster preparation and selection for the workshop.


Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 100 delegates with proven experience and/or knowledge of the subject areas being covered.

Programme Information

Detailed information on Workshop Programme will be posted on SPE web-site:

Conference report

  • Presentation materials will not be published, therefore formal papers and handouts are not expected from speakers. PowerPoint presentations will be posted on a specific SPE URL address after the Workshop and be available for Workshop attendees only.
  • The Committee will prepare a full report containing the highlights of the Workshop description. This report will be circulated to all attendees. The copyright of the summary report will belong to SPE.


In keeping with Workshop objectives and the SPE mission, excessive commercialism in posters or presentations will not be permitted. Company logo must be limited to the poster slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter and others involved in the work.

Attendance Certificate

All attendees will receive a certificate from SPE attesting to their participation in the Workshop.

Dress code

Casual clothing is recommended. The Workshop atmosphere is informal.
