Integrated Historical WorkFlows: Maximising the value of a mature asset – SPE Distinguished Lecturer Anne Valentine of SCHLUMBERGER
Wednesday March 28, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Industry studies show that mature fields currently account for over 70% of the world’s oil and gas production. Increasing production rates and ultimate recovery in these fields in order to maintain profitable operations, without increasing costs, is a common challenge.
This presentation addresses techniques to extract maximum value from historical production data using quick workflows based on common sense. Extensive in-depth reservoir studies are obviously very valuable, but not all situations require these, particularly in the case of brown fields where the cost of the study may outweigh the benefits of the resulting recommendations.
