How Can We Double Carbonate Reservoir Recovery?

23-26 February 2015 :: Istanbul, Turkey


More than 62% of the world’s oil and 40% of the gas reserves reside in carbonates, with recovery factors that are significantly lower than in sandstones. With a global average recovery rate of 30% today, can we make a 60% or higher recovery a reality for carbonate oil fields in the future? This SPE forum will address new and emerging science and technology such as reservoir characterisation, nano and bio-technologies, material and computational science, and physics and chemistry that could provide significant gains. It will focus on the future needs and opportunities.



The application deadline is 3 December 2014.
