09:00 - 17:00
Seminar: Reservoir Characterisation
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Dr Moustafa Oraby

Reservoir Characterisation serves multiple disciplines. The prediction of Pore Pressure, Fracture Gradients, Reservoir Stresses, Wellbore Stability and Lithology Columns provides the drilling engineers with information needed to deliver a problem free wellbore. On the other hand, the evaluation of reservoir properties of porosity, pore structure, permeability and fluids' saturation provides the reservoir engineers with the information needed to build the dynamic model of a reservoir. The evaluation of the reservoir parameters behind casing such as fluids saturation provides both the production engineers and the petrophysicists with the tools required to optimise reservoir deliverability. This course will combine all these information in a simplified way to integrate all attendees from the different disciplines for optimum reservoir management.

Session 1: Drilling Management
Session Chairpersons Osama El Shenoufy, Weatherford; Mohamed Ghareeb, Weatherford; Ali Salem, Consultant

The oil and gas industry currently faces challenging environments with more complicated processes and commercial barriers. The objective of drilling and well engineering management system is to address the technical and organisational aspects of drilling operations and deliver the wells in a safe and cost effective manner. The need for optimising the well cost and ensuring the best use of resources is becoming more critical.

Economic challenges have brought more focus on technical aspects, optimising engineering planning, and efficiently fulfilling field operational requirements. Drilling optimisation is crucial in the analysis of new projects feasibility through a collaborative approach of various engineering departments to optimise the process from planning to efficiently and safely executing the well.

In this session, the focus will be on case studies through which drilling engineering teams have practically managed drilling performance challenges and achieved improved efficiency. This starts from the early phases of planning and analysis of all relevant lessons learnt. The case studies portray real-time field execution models to share the lessons learnt and utilise upcoming challenging drilling cases.

13:00 - 15:00
Session 2: Well Integrity
Session Chairpersons Ahmed Samir, Consultant; Mohamed Zahran, Shell

Through this session, several well completion points are going to be addressed, such as optimising well completion in unconventional and tight reservoirs. An optimised completion design can result in better production rates and overall well performance. Additionally, artificial lift in unconventional and tight reservoirs is going to be discussed. Developing unconventional resources can pose various technical challenges for producing formation fluids economically. The proper selection of an artificial lift system and equipment, along with an adequate completion design to support production operations are invaluable for maximising asset values. With the rising level of challenges encountered during the production of a well, the advent of smart completion systems plays an integral role in various aspects, such as water cut management. Another challenging discussion topic will be scale buildup in wellbores along with prediction and control methods. The last topic will be data gathering during drilling operations, which play a crucial role in understanding a reservoir and enhancing its characterisation. There are several methods for data gathering during drilling, which usually starts with mud logging. Several additional tools can be added to bottom hole assembly to enhance data gathering. These tools can range from logging, which helps in obtaining well logs during drilling to specialty tools and techniques such as seismic guided drilling. Seismic guided drilling obtains seismic surveys to understand subsurface structures and formations.

Session 3: Equipment and Technology
Session Chairpersons Essam Abdel Fattah, Midco; Abdalla Bekhiet Badr, NOSPCO; Ismail El Khouly, Consultant

When considering the most significant aspects of new drilling technology, the latest downhole tools, rig design, and operational procedures the most profound advancements exceed anything achievable with new tools, procedures, or machines.

The deployment of new technologies increase revenues, lowers costs, and improves safety and reliability of our operations because drilling and well construction typically involves the majority of the cost and risk for upstream projects. This new revolution is inevitably a game changer for overall health, safety, and environment, efficiency, and financial performance of wells. Exciting developments in new downhole tools, fluids, and rig design continue to advance, with gains in safety and efficiency being multiplied by this transformation. A new revolution is also occurring in parallel with accelerated applications of managed pressure, and underbalanced drilling technology.
