SPE Workshop: Tight Gas - Challenges and Opportunities 25 - 27 Feb 2019 Grand Millennium Hotel Muscat, Oman


The need for a shift in mindset and expanding the work processes beyond the conventional way of well construction and reservoir development is becoming more vital.  This goes hand-in-hand with the support of new technologies and progress of industry maturation as a key enabler. 

This edition of the tight gas workshop will focus on addressing, sharing and discussing key challenges, best practices from around the globe in relation to improved well deliverability, and reservoir accessibility in tight gas fields. Additional focus will be on the latest available new technology that may reduce tight gas developer cost and hence increasing return on investment.


Improving well and rock deliverability are critical tasks in a very low permeability gas environment. Beside the tightness of the reservoir, many other factors are equally influential in maximising production from the well and reservoir production system.

Improved understanding of the static features, fluid type, fluid dynamics, optimum well design and reservoir accessibility are key factors leading to unlock and maximise value from tight and unconventional reservoirs.
