Panel Session 3: Simultaneous Solutions to Meet Community and Investor Expectations

Balancing the expectations of oil and gas investors with the well-being of the community is a challenging objective, and one which should form the foundation of regulatory decision making. For a mutually beneficial outcome, the needs of the project proponents, the environment, the community, regulators and other stakeholders must be considered whilst sustaining welcomed, compatible and simultaneous use of land for a myriad of purposes. These purposes include activities associated with full project lifecycle, i.e. oil and gas exploration, development, production, processing, transport to markets, and decommissioning. Trusted land access is both the first factor and the final outcome of a virtuous E&P life-cycle.
The panel discussion will provide an opportunity for experts from government regulatory agencies, the upstream oil and gas industry and their service providers, as well as advocates for environmental protection, to provide insight and stimulate discussion on this important topic.

Technical Session 19: Brownfield Redevelopment

Session Chairpersons:

Abdolrahim Ataei, PETRONAS; Cholid Mas, Schlumberger

Brownfields are increasingly important in the South East Asia after decades of continuous production. With two-thirds of production coming from these assets, decreasing pressure, higher water and gas production and aging facilities are making the life of these fields very challenging.
The gap between current output and expected production capacity indicates optimisation as the way forward for redevelopment of these valuable assets. Although some causes of decline are largely out of our control, there is a lot we can do to improve recovery and production through improved well placement, increased reservoir contact, injection of liquids or gases into the reservoir, and surface optimisation such as accurate metering, debottlenecking and boosting production operational efficiency.
At this session, panel speakers will discuss various challenges in developing brownfields and give practical examples of how they are dealing with these issues. This will be followed by an interactive question-and-answer session between the panellists and audience.

Technical Session 21: Unconventional IV: Super Session – 90 Years’ Experience in 90 Minutes

Session Chairpersons:

Carl Greenstreet, Santos Ltd.; Tony Lake, Beach Energy Ltd.

Australian coal seam gas, tight gas sands, and shale gas reservoirs are all being presented as viable resources for the domestic and international gas market more than ever before. Large investments have been made in coal seam gas for LNG exports by BG Group/QGC, ConocoPhillips/Origin, PETRONAS/Santos and Shell/Arrow. Simultaneously, new play areas are opening in the Cooper Basin and tight gas areas are being considered for domestic gas demand and to increase LNG exports.
The development of unconventional resources rely on a massive expansion of development wells, extensive infrastructure requirements, and more often than not hydraulic fracturing to achieve these goals. This panel discussion was intended to understand what has been successful in past CSG pilots, key elements in hydraulic fracturing in shale gas plays and how to best estimate the ultimate delivery of unconventional reservoirs as early as possible in the life of a well using rate transient analysis techniques.

Panel Session 4: Accelerating Field Production – Fast Tracking Development Plans and Execution

Industry competitiveness has been heightened by rapidly increasing world energy needs and ‘globalisation’ driven by the emergence of the LNG market. Operators that can take the greatest advantage of this environment are those that can minimise their time from discovery to first production.
In this session, industry leaders will discuss how minimising this ‘cycle time’ requires not only a deliberate and considered appraisal and development plan to rapidly minimise technical risks, but also careful management of the economic, market, environmental and political risks as well.

Technical Session 23: LNG Technology

Session Chairpersons:

Cheryl Licari, Baker Hughes; Shige Miyazaki, Independent

Asia Pacific is an important market for LNG, with more than 60% of the world LNG demand coming from the region. In tandem with this, we find that onshore and offshore LNG development in Asia Pacific is rapidly progressing with a growth in the number of liquefaction and liquefaction facilities in the last few years.
New LNG projects require revolutionary and evolutionary ideas and processes to ensure that the projects will be viable economically and technologically. The session will focus on up-to-date technological advancement of LNG technology.
