Unconventional Resources: New Ideas for New Challenges – From Heavy Oil to Shale Gas/Shale Oil Opportunities
4-6 December |
Bogota, Colombia | JW Marriott Hotel
SOLD OUT. Registration is Closed
Colombia is well known for its production of heavy oil generated from world-class Cretaceous source rocks. Industry is now aggressively pursuing significant undiscovered heavy oil in both developed and unexplored areas of southeastern Llanos Basin, the Middle Magdalena and the Caguan-Putumayo Basins. Recent exploration in the shallow eastern-most parts of the Llanos Basin may confirm whether the Orinoco heavy oil belt of Venezuela extends into Colombia.
Industry attention is also turning to the reservoir potential offered by these thick sections of Cretaceous black shales in the Middle Magdalena, Upper Magdalena, Eastern Cordillera, Putumayo and Catatumbo basins. New government contractual arrangements will encourage development of Colombia's unconventional resources.
Network with industry experts during the Sunday evening Icebreaker. Hear cutting edge papers and engage in lively cross-disciplinary discussion during four technical sessions on Monday and Tuesday. Beginning with an overview of unconventional resource concepts, this workshop will cover shale gas to heavy oil exploration and development case studies, concluding with a look at cross-disciplinary optimization strategies. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from and network with geologists, geophysicists, and engineers from leading Latin America and North America companies.
