Through the Lens of Complex Mexican Reservoirs
The key to optimizing production and recovery in mature fields is the consistent application of reservoir characterization tasks in conjunction with production operations and surveillance tasks. As global demand for oil continues to increase, we must focus on improving and extending the productive lives of mature fields.
Join the SPE Workshop: Reservoir Characterization of Mature Fields — The Mexican Connection on 20–21 April 2022 to evaluate current projects and technologies which can be deployed to improve production, recovery, cost-effectiveness and profitability.
An Integration of Knowledge on the Next Generation of FPSOs
