Session 4: UR - Data Analytics Application

One of the many challenges we face in the oil and gas industry is the management of data and information. This wealth of data is now driving decisions through the intelligent use of software and data analytics. Many companies in the Unconventional space have adopted sophisticated data-centric approaches that are building the pre-shale era of conventional reservoir data and modelling techniques. This session offers you a glimpse of the application of data analytics while speaking to the benefits of utilizing this emerging science

Session 5: UR - Innovation and New Technologies

Unconventional resource recovery has significant challenges due to extremely low permeability. Many industry changing technologies have been developed in the past, including horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to optimize recovery of oil and gas at reduced capital expenditure. This session includes interesting presentations on some innovations and new technologies which will help tackle the challenges in the recovery of unconventional resources.

Session 7: UR - Reservoir Characterization II

Linking effective reservoir characterization with quantification of their impacts on future production potential is a vitally important and challenging process for operators. This session will present advances in several techniques ranging from type curve matching, core analysis, well testing to production history matching to help bridge that gap.

Session 9: UR - Unconventional EOR and EGR II

Achieving high hydrocarbon recovery is challenging in unconventional tight and shale reservoirs. Although EOR/EGR processes could potentially improve the recovery factor beyond the primary depletion, large-scale field application of these processes are not yet established in these reservoirs. This session will focus on the latest research trends, modelling and experimental work to better understand issues involved in improved economic recovery from such reservoirs.
