About this Workshop
Sour gas injection has received much attention due to the high cost of processing produced by acid gas at the surface and the improvement in oil recovery as a result of pressure maintenance and miscible displacement. The economic development of giant sour carbonate fields in Kazakhstan involves reinjection of substantial portions of produced sour gas back into the reservoir. The high H2S (5-18%) content, combined with high injection pressures and significant volumes of gas reinjected back into reservoirs result in a unique set of technical and operational challenges.
The workshop is a platform for discussion on the latest applications on the most prominent aspects of sour gas injection into carbonate reservoirs. There will be a particular focus on subsurface aspects covering topics such as carbonate reservoir characterisation, modeling methods, reservoir surveillance tools to improve understanding of reservoir performance, and the prediction of gas injection performance. It will also cover important surface aspects related to sour gas injection compressor design and performance as well as HSE considerations.
