Sunday, March 25
In teaching this course, the instructors plan to:
- Spend most of the time discussing the practical aspects of CO2 flooding and keep discussion of the theoretical topics to bare minimum.
- Discuss economics of CO2 flooding (vis-à-vis water flooding).
- Give course attendees some practical and useful problems to work on in the class.
- Discuss CO2 geosequestration wherever there is interest in this topic.
- Provide each course attendee a course manual containing copies of the instructors’ PowerPoint presentations and solutions to the class problems.
This one-day seminar introduces various surveillance concepts, options and ways of examining cost-effectiveness based on several case studies.
Some information discussed could be strategic and lead to operations modification via identification of improvement opportunities or of imminent threats. Therefore, surveillance operations are continued until their marginal value is greater than corresponding marginal costs.
Be prepared to network, diversify your approach, and be inspired!
Woman to Excel: Network, Diversify and Inspire is a one-day workshop designed to address the challenges and opportunities faced by women throughout their careers, to inspire female talent, and to attract future generations to our industry.

About this Session
This panel will discuss:
- The contributions of the petroleum industry to socio-economic developments.
- How to enhance these contributions by exploring new opportunities and frontiers.
- How the industry is responding to the low oil price challenges.
- Ways to assure governments and people of its ability to effectively respond to the raised concerns, overall socio-economic changes, and challenges.
The energy sector, dominated by the fossil and petroleum resources, has been a main enabler of the modern socio-economic developments and driver for many industrial and technological advancements. The oil and gas industry has been providing energy for almost all uses of petroleum, in recent decades including industrial, demotic, and transportation, in addition to provision of feedstock to many agricultural, domestic, and industrial products. The contributions of the petroleum industry has extended to broad socio-economic developments and welfare for people in many countries, particularly producing countries such as the Gulf countries. These contributions span from provision of the main national income, employment, business and in-country value development to technological advancements.
However, the high dependency of many producing countries on the oil and gas revenues to sustain their economies, to progress their developments, and to offer good welfare to their citizens has been posing major concerns that were amplified with the recent significant drop in the oil prices. While economists, government officials, planners, and analysts debate ways to achieve independency from reliance on oil revenue—noteably through diversifying the economy and developing new industries—the petroleum industry is required to support these efforts while maintaining its essential contributions and continue to contribute to socio-economic developments. That is, not by abandoning the petroleum development, but by enhancing contributions through the creation of high-graded jobs, advancing technologies, developing supporting industries, developing more environmental-friendly uses of petroleum resources, and even exploiting and developing new sources of energy.

About this Session
In this major executive panel session, distinguished industry leaders will share their assessment of the industry’s successes and progress made in the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) journey, highlighting its importance and impact on the energy sector and the economical/technological developments at large. The discussion will focus on what it takes to stay the course and make significant strides in progressing into new frontiers.
Staying the course and moving to new frontiers requires the sharing of EOR developmental efforts, industrial experience and new advances by addressing the emerging and implementation challenges more effectively. The Middle East region, Oman in particular, is achieving major advances in EOR developments and addressing the challenges of moving to new frontiers.
EOR methods and technologies have been in development, evaluation, and implementation has steadily increased in recent years, which has brought about further advancements in both understanding/conceptualisation and the implementing/operating levels. Hence, consolidating EOR has become a vital part of oil extraction methods in many parts on the world.
The recent significant and longer-lasting reduction in oil price posed major challenges to EOR applications which are highly variable, capital intensive, challenging to operate, and in most cases, field specific. However, the oil industry has responded to these challenges by stepping up efforts and optimising development, improving unit technical costs by advancing technologies and extractions methods, EOR applications are benefiting most from new realities.
There is a need for the industry to stay the course for existing EOR applications and to ensure they continue to thrive whilst progressing to new frontiers to unlock further hydrocarbon resources. These frontiers are targeting resources that are extremely difficult to access and extract, as well as new technologies and methods. While the main EOR methods (thermal, chemical, and miscible gas) increase recovery by improving oil mobility and displacement, further enhancements could be achieved with the combination of improved productivity and increased accessibility to oil resources through the application of novel methods.

About this Session
In this session we will hear from experts in the EOR field and learn from their experiences to efficiently progress an EOR project from concept to production.
EOR Project development and turnaround cycle—from a conceptual phase to realisation and production—varies between companies and business cultures. What makes some companies faster than others in successfully developing an oil field by implementating an EOR project and progress this from concept to full production?
In some companies, it takes years to implement an EOR project to full field production. These companies go through prolonged assessment periods including carrying out field and lab work, analysing the results before implementing a pilot. Based on the results, and company strategies and priorities, only then can implementation begin on a small or field/reservoir wide scale.
In other companies, it may be more critical to progress the implementation of such projects at a fast pace and employ dedicated resources to ensure early and successful realisation. For these companies, the task can be a more challenging. They may start with the decision to outsource the work to a specialised consulting firm, or to carry it out with their own resources.
Initially the selection of the right consultant is critical for success, even though the project objectives, goals and targets are clearly defined and adhered to throughout the whole project. If the project is going to be carried out internally, selection of the project team, the need to employ additional expert resources, team members coherence, dedication, discipline, team, company leadership style, company business processes, clear objectives and targets, etc., need to be taken into account.
Organisational soft characteristics like culture, and its business processes are critical to success, but meticulous project planning, project management and execution are important in implementing and maturing the concept quickly.

About this Session
Modern society is heavily dependent on petroleum and its products. From fuelling jets to band-aids, petroleum is used in almost everything that human beings use today. This session highlights the importance of petroleum in our life and puts emphasis on maintaining its supply. Most oil companies realise that new giant fields are difficult to find. The consensus therefore is to maximise the recovery factors. Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is the geoscience community’s response to meet this objective.
The concepts of popular EOR methods have been known to the industry for several years. What has prevented their mass application is the oil price. It is an open secret that development costs in the Middle East are much lower, and therefore a barrel of oil here is cheaper, providing an advantage towards the application of EOR methods more than elsewhere. Countries looking to take advantage of the potentially available technology, as well as the low oil price, can also look at EOR as a short-term, rather than a long-term production-enhancement process. Even in a conventional sense, low secondary recovery due to reservoir heterogeneity suggests that a large EOR prize may still be achievable.
EOR requires an in-depth knowledge of reservoir architecture and flow behaviour. Some Middle East reservoirs that have been under waterflood for more than 15–20 years have plans to field test some EOR methods, mostly chemical. Different EOR mechanisms have been piloted in GCC reservoirs. Oman is at an advanced stage of implementing a chemical EOR project. The EOR activities are on a fast track across different assets in Kuwait, which has already started miscible gas injection in West Kuwait. Chemical EOR and Low Sal will follow, including the first chemical (ASP) EOR pilot for a carbonate reservoir in North Kuwait in a couple of months. Abu Dhabi has also reported promising results for CO2 and chemical floods at both lab and field pilot scale.
Lowering the cost of EOR oil is the key to its popularity and field application anywhere. This can be achieved by securing low-cost injectants and lowering the cost of operations and EOR facilities.
EOR is coming of age in the Middle East. The next 10–15 years will see field-wide expansion of present EOR pilot projects to create an impact on any organisation’s balance sheet. In the meantime, companies should prepare to deal with subsurface and surface challenges arising out of more complex EOR operations than waterflood in terms of manpower, material, money and HSE.

About this Session
In this panel session, industry leaders will share their views on how to manage resources in challenging EOR developments and the different approaches needed compared to conventional developments.
For the development of any field, management of resources is important, but with field development, that includes enhanced oil recovery (EOR), making resource management more critical. The aim of this panel is to consider all resources related to EOR projects, which could include water, energy, chemicals, people, data, financial and hydrocarbons. In addition, waste streams and emissions (e.g. GHG) are also resources that need to be included in resource management plans. For every EOR development, the resources need to identified and carefully managed to ensure a holistic and integrated management plan is implemented.
For water management it is essential to consider the full water cycle, potential water sources, water treatment of the produced fluids, reuse of the produced water and disposal options. It is important that a fully integrated view is considered, not only of the water cycle, but also across other field, assets, licence blocks, and even by country.
For thermal EOR, management of the energy requirements and understanding the energy balance is important, from considering alternative energy sources (e.g. renewables)— including utilising heat recovery technology and implementing effective WRFM to manage conformance—to steam optimisation through additives and hybrid technologies.
For any project, sufficient skills and competencies are required across a broad range of disciplines. To implement EOR projects additional skills and competencies are needed, many of which can only be developed while actively involved with an EOR project or development. It is important to ensure an integrated data management plan is in place, including data gathering, data storage, integration of different data sources, and visualisation.

About this Session
This session will accommodate case histories, performance improvement initiatives, technology breakthrough, innovative ideas, short-term and long-term plans to assist EOR projects in becoming more efficient with time.
The recent long-lasting reduction in oil price and the primary success of unconventional reservoirs in the United States have driven global EOR projects to operate at a higher level of efficiency. The new baseline for project economics in primary recovery is trending towards unconventional reservoirs. This means that in the short-term the new growth potential for the EOR projects may experience more competition with unconventional reservoirs.
The Middle East region—Oman in particular—is achieving major advances in EOR developments and is addressing the challenges of moving to new frontiers. Further enhancements could be achieved by the combination of improved productivity and application of novel methods.
