Comment Period – Data Analytics in Reservoir Engineering

The period for members to comment on a draft technical report titled Data Analytics in Reservoir Engineering is now open and will close on 4 January 2020.

This technical report focuses on the impact of data analytics on reservoir engineering applications, more specifically, the ability to characterize reservoir parameters, analyze and model reservoir behavior and forecast performance to transform the decision-making process. The report outlines the methodology and guidelines for building robust models and provides examples of successful applications.

SPE encourages members to review the proposed technical report and submit their comments and feedback by the comment period closing date.

SPE's Management and Information Discipline is Splitting to Address Growing Needs

Last month the SPE Board approved important changes to the Management and Information technical discipline.

The discipline will be split: Management will have its own discipline and Information will be refocused and renamed Data Science and Engineering Analytics. The Board agrees this change is necessary to remain relevant and to recognize the importance of digital transformation among our members’ responsibilities and the industry as a whole.

SPE will start updating systems, and you will gradually start seeing changes related to this decision, including information on how to update your discipline selection.
