The energy industry, characterised as both capitally intensive and requiring robust risk management, has historically been relatively slow to accept new technology and ways of working. Major projects, typically with long procurement and engineering lead times, frequently bias towards proven technology and designs. Key contractors are inclined to deploy existing tools to minimize capital expenditure on equipment upgrades. 

High entry costs, particularly against the backdrop of geographic and market constraints, can result in limited competition. High commodity prices can make good performance ‘good enough.’  Low commodity prices, however, can change the game entirely. What will it take for our industry to leverage the accelerating and compounding capabilities of digital technologies, data analytics, improved sensors, geotagging technology, autonomous systems, and compute power? What are the changes in mindset that need to accompany an improved toolbox?

12:30 - 13:30
13:30 - 15:00
Session 1: Well Integrity Management
Session Chairpersons Tofig Ahmadov, Schlumberger; Farahi Isayeva, Statoil

Well Integrity Management is of critical importance throughout the lifecycle of the well and the host facility and presents challenges which must be addressed from initial well planning through to well abandonment. The session will feature case histories of how well integrity issues have been addressed in the Caspian region and examples of the complementary application of new technologies with a focus on the transfer of best practices.

Modern ‘Localisation’ programmes drive the development of a country’s local talent and associated industries. They are necessary to ensure countries build their historical oil and gas experience, map long-lasting successes, encourage investment in local infrastructures, and establish modern universities with curricula that meet international standards.

The Caspian countries are already seeing the benefits of past programmes in which students are educated overseas and gain experience in international companies, then bring their learnings and best practices back to their home industries. Now, work needs to continue to produce internationally recognised courses at leading Caspian Universities to educate field-ready engineers. 

The Caspian countries, in particular Azerbaijan, have been at the forefront of developing local manufacturing and supply chain industries by bridging Asia and Europe and closing the technology gap. This has created a stable and mutually beneficial working relationship between the international and local firms, and has provided a sustainable market place and future favourable conditions for foreign investors to work in an alliance with local companies.

This panel will examine and discuss shared experiences to show what has been achieved, and the areas that need to be addressed to be able to move to the next level of collaborative full value chain ‘Localisation’.

Session 5: New Drilling Completion Technologies
Session Chairpersons Andrey Kravachenko, Baker Hughes; Teyrun Gahramanov, Halliburton

New drilling and completion technologies are important for the Caspian region to allow successful cost-efficient well construction. This is in part due to the complexity of the Caspian region’s geological structure. Despite the Caspian being one of the most experienced oil and gas regions we are still learning and resolving various problems that operators have to solve in order to drill and complete wells in the most efficient way. This session will discuss some of the applicable technologies and case studies related to drilling and completion.

Session 6: Reservoir Modelling and Management
Session Chairpersons Turan Ibrahimov, BP; Elchin Veliyev, SOCAR

Reservoir modeling is widely used in the oil and gas industry. It involves the construction of a numerical simulation model of reservoirs for a variety of purposes including: improving estimation of reserves and making decisions regarding the development of the field, forecasting future production of oil, gas and water, estimating pressure depletion, optimisation of water and gas injection and well target optimisation, and evaluating alternative reservoir management scenarios. This session will share recent examples of reservoir modelling, challenges and successes, as well as sharing knowledge of its use in reservoir management.

Session 7: Reservoir Description
Session Chairpersons Aghamammad Sultanov, SOCAR; Elshan Rzayev, BP

This session includes studies related to integration of various geological, geophysical and petrophysical methods together with surveillance and production information to better understand the dynamic behaviour of reservoirs and to be able to address some of the issues associated with the depletion of the producing formations. Understanding the uncertainty of the input parameters and the choice of the risk assessment methodology for reserves estimation, application of the geological description in estimation of the reservoir recovery, and characterisation of various reservoir features such as fractures and their incorporation into the simulation models for improved reservoir performance forecast – are amongst the key topics for the session.

Session 8: Data Integration for Reservoir Management
Session Chairpersons Eldar Maharramov, Nobel Oil; Yegor Se, TCO

Reservoir data accumulation from various sources continuously increases with field development. Regardless of volume of collected data, the increased value from the data can only be achieved when data can be properly analysed, integrated with conceptual models and leveraged during critical decision-making phases. This technical session is devoted to three case studies from different parts of the world, which provide clear examples of effective data management workflows and proactive data collection, resulting in improved hydrocarbon recovery, accurate production forecasting, enhanced well reliability and much more.

Session 9: Well Stimulation and Zonal Isolations
Session Chairpersons Ehtiram Azizov, BP; Luis Daniel Pinero, Baker Hughes

Production and supporting its injection can be enhanced in many ways. In some it is achieved with stimulation of the interval, in others it could be isolation of zones and subzones with excessive water or gas production. There is a choice of mechanical versus chemical isolation techniques in this area. There are associated challenges starting from accurate identification of water, gas entry zones, their complete isolation to designed diversion of stimulation treatment to avoid high productivity/injectivity intervals in order to maximise job efficiency. Come to the session and hear from experiences gained in chemical gas shut off, diversion agents and acid stimulations from the Caspian region.

Decision making is a key step at any stage of the reservoir life cycle from production tasks to asset development strategies and investment evaluation. Competitive prices for energy resources, the complexity of reserves structure and the challenges of reservoir development mean that decision making involves high uncertainties and risks. Taking into account the relationship of profitability of project decisions, any errors can be extremely costly for companies. This session will feature effective solutions for risk evaluation and management based on real cases.
