SEG/SPE Advanced Geoscience Virtual Workshop: Applications in Drilling and Well Placement 10 - 12 Nov 2020 Virtual Workshop [MYT, UTC +8 ]

As the oil and gas industry strives for efficiency and low cost of operations, drilling and well placement require integrated workflows and interpretation of subsurface information such as geophysical, geological, and petrophysical data, reservoir performance data in order to optimise well placement. 

Subsurface geologic structures are provided by surface geophysical data in terms of depth to target, bed boundaries, fault locations, geologic dip, reservoir quality in terms of porosity and lithology as well as fluid phase and contacts.

These are vital information on the planning and preparation for drilling wells. The major challenges we face are; data availability and quality, complex geological scenarios, operational execution and precision of well placement. 

This workshop will address such major topics in a collaborative environment encompassing subsurface and drilling activities.



This workshop will aim to address the following topics:

  • ​Well planning and modeling of reservoir characterization
  • Advances in geoscience measurements for drilling and well placement
  • Cost-effective real-time geosteering and imaging
  • Pore pressure and fracture gradient in complex geological setting
  • Industry 4.0 (IR 4.0) applications of cloud, artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Real-time geomechanics using geoscience measurements
  • Geophysical imaging for drilling
  • Uncertainties in drilling and well placement
  • Unconventional and deepwater drilling
  • Geoengineering workflow – application and case studies
  • Underbalanced drilling
