The SPE Workshop: Production Forecasting for Heavy Oil and Unconventional Resources is a two-day, two-track workshop which will bring together operators, service companies, regulatory authorities, research bodies, academia, and other interested parties in an open and collaborative environment.
Unconventional Resources Track
The unconventional oil and gas world has changed rapidly in the past four years. Unconventional development has shifted from dry gas to multi-phase liquid flow, 10,000 ft is the new standard for lateral length, completions designs are five times more intense than five years ago, and oil is half the price.
Heavy Oil Track
Commercial thermal recovery projects are relatively new within the oil and gas industry, so there is limited data. Because of this, there is considerable value in sharing knowledge and establishing best practices as an industry. The intent of this workshop is to capture industry learnings to establish forecasting best practices that will result in improved forecast accuracy.
The multi-day workshop is an intensive learning experience that fosters knowledge sharing. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A discussion.
E&P professionals with common roles and challenges are brought together to share ideas that advance technology ad best practices.
Presentations from top industry professionals make up a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies.
