The Role of Geophysics in Unlocking Unconventional Reservoirs
Date 17-20 November 2013
Location

InterContinental Dubai Festival City Hotel

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

This workshop focused on the role of geophysical technologies in exploring and developing shale gas and tight sand reservoirs.

About

Many operating companies have been intrigued by the success demonstrated in North America of unconventional resources, mainly shale gas.

However, there are many outstanding technical challenges facing geoscientists in the Middle East & North Africa regions when searching for unconventional resources with significant economic value.

Technical topics

  • Geophysics in Basin Modeling
  • Economic viability of Geophysics vs. drilling a well
  • Pushing the limits of legacy data
  • Seismic Data Acquisition strategies
  • Multi component seismic data
  • Seismic data processing workflows
  • Petro-Physics and Rock Physics
  • Geomechanical models
  • Integrity of wellbore, reservoirs and seals
  • Fracturing and Micro-seismic applications
  • Reservoir Characterization and sweet-spot mapping
  • Emerging technologies
