Pore Pressure and Related Issues – Special Focus: Asia Pacific
28-29 October 2010
Singapore | Event Venue
The Asia-Pacific region is an area of extensive opportunity and capacity for growth for oil and gas production. However, the industry faces many challenges in finding and developing the region’s significant resources. The Asia-Pacific region contains some of the world’s deepest and most rapidly formed basins and associated high magnitude overpressures. Such extreme overpressures pose significant hazards for drilling, exploration, completions and production.
Consisting of presentations, dynamic discussions, exciting cross-disciplinary perspectives on new developments and applications in pore pressure prediction, with an emphasis on case studies in the Asia-Pacific region. This workshop will be a great place for experienced geoscientists to discuss published papers, and for young geologists to become familiar with the key issues currently facing the industry.
The event focuses on integrating geological, geophysical, and engineering information. Presenters may also discuss the impact of technology on economics.
Presentations will include:
- Case Studies: Asia Pacific
- Fractured & Unconventional Reservoirs
- Understanding Overpressures
- Frontiers in Pore Pressure Prediction
- Basin Modelling
Speakers will include:
GeoPressure Technology, UK
