AAPG has a proud history of trailblazing geologists who have brought scientific inquiry, innovative mindsets, and a desire to work with teams to find new reservoirs and bring needed energy to the people of the world. Welcome to an interview with Dr. Yongsheng Ma, President and Chief Geologist, Sinopec Co., Ltd., who talks to us today about his formative experiences and valuable lessons learned. (Please note that Dr. Ma’s family name is Ma, which usually is placed first in Chinese publications, such as in President Ma Yongsheng.)

AAPG Event National Capital District Papua New Guinea 28 February, 2020 Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Member 7:00 AM 8:00 AM 24 October, 2019
 
National Capital District, Papua New Guinea
28 February 2020

Date: Friday 28 – Saturday 29 February 2020 (2 days)
Instructor: John Kaldi, Australian School of Petroleum, University of Adelaide, Australia

Overview:

This course demonstrates the use of capillary pressure and relative permeability data in conjunction with basic rock properties and wireline logs, to evaluate reservoir rock quality, recovery efficiency and net pay. The course also covers the main aspects of determining seal potential (seal capacity, seal geometry and seal integrity) as well as the main controls on fault seals, and methods used in evaluating these. The course is presented in a workshop format, allowing participants to delve into the details in several practical exercises.

Who should attend:

Geologists, reservoir engineers and managers involved in hydrocarbon exploration and/or development, will benefit from the straightforward and intuitive presentation of principles governing petroleum migration and accumulation, net pay determination, as well as practical applications to determine seal properties for both oil and gas reservoirs.

Course Content
  • Introduction to Reservoirs, Seals And Pay
  • Basic Principles of Capillary Pressure
  • Caprock And Intraformational Seal Evaluation
  • Pore Geometry
  • Relative Permeability and Recovery Efficiency
  • Net Pay Determination
