Maximising Oil and Gas Recovery from Producing Field
Brown fields today can be regarded as marginal fields and successfully redeveloped. This two-day course develops the strategies for developing brown fields. It covers the complete assessment of the additional oil and gas recovery potential from reservoir approaches, and to the construction of integrated production systems for cost effective development of the brown fields.
This two-day course is structured having 4 integrated lecture sessions with an additional session to discuss field cases to be brought by the participants.
Course Agenda (pdf)
As globally recognized, effort to increase oil and gas production shall be a combination of developing new discoveries and maximizing the production from existing fields. Brown fields today still have significant reserves compared with those of the new discoveries. As a petroleum engineer, it is important for you to understand the potential, challenges and options of producing more from existing fields.
Who Should Attend
The course is designed for petroleum engineers involving in various phases of technical and engineering studies, and for those in resources management and investment for brown field and marginal field developments.
Engineers are responsible for enhancing their professional competence throughout their careers. Licensed, chartered, and or/ certified engineers are sometimes required by government entities to provide proof of continued professional development and training. Training credits are defined as Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDH).
Attendees of SPE training courses earn 0.8 CEUs for each day of training. We provide each attendee a certificate upon completion of the training course.
Keng Seng Chan is currently a principal reservoir engineer for PETRONAS, Malaysia. He was a SPE Distinguished Lecturer for the season of 2009-2010 and the recipient of the 2011 North Asia Pacific Region Technical Award for Production and Operations. Throughout his 35-year career in the oil industry, he held various key positions in research and development, new technology and field operation technical support and management, and performed as reservoir study team leader and advisor for various field development projects. At this present position, he also served as the advisor for technical endorsement of Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) for offshore field development in Malaysia. He holds BS and MS degrees in Physics from the University of Rangoon, MS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Florida.
