Pore Pressure and Fracturing Implications in Reservoir Characterization
May 11-13, 2010 | The Meritage Resort at Napa | Napa, California
The goal of this workshop is to gain knowledge to improve understanding of reservoirs where pore pressure and natural fracturing play important roles. Participants will examine and discuss how pore pressure and fracturing impact the understanding of reservoirs, reservoir fluids, and reservoir characterization.

Who should attend
This geocience technology workshop is ideal for geologists, engineers, geo-techs, geophysicists, geochemists, and other team members who want to to gain knowledge to improve understanding of reservoirs where pore pressure and natural fracturing play important roles. Participants will examine and discuss how pore pressure and fracturing impact the understanding of reservoirs, reservoir fluids, and reservoir characterization.
Presenters make brief 10-15-minute presentations, then open the floor for discussion. There will also be breakout sessions and small-group discussions. The goal is to encourage exchanges on topics of value to geologists, geophysicists, and engineers.
What is special about a GTW?
People who are actively working in operations, exploration, production, research, and service industries can talk in small groups, discuss concepts, and learn from each other. For informed, small-group, focused discussions that focus on practical, applied and relevant geosciences, there’s nothing like it!
