Back to the Future — the Past and Future of Oil and Gas Production in the Asia Pacific Region

27-28 September 2018
Bangkok, Thailand
Sponsored By:

The upstream oil and gas business has two primary functions; the front-end loaded exploration phase and the development-focused harvest-mode which results in actual hydrocarbon production and revenue generation. Both of these processes require extensive geoscience input but the scope, techniques and time involved are quite different. This two-day workshop will focus on these two siblings; the first day will focus on mature field development and the second day will highlight exploration potential within the Asia Pacific region.

The first day of the conference, the "Back to…." theme will focus on maximizing value from existing assets. Stranded gas, horizontal drilling, down-spacing drilling, fracture stimulation, waterflooding, EOR, deeper targets within existing fields, reservoir geometry and characterization are all potential topics for the first day. Significant value is delivered through optimizing the development phase and this day will provide the attendees fruitful insights into what others have done in their areas to maximize value.

Second-day topics ("…to the Future") include frontier exploration, unconventional resource exploration and deep water exploration. While the AP region is relatively mature in the onshore and shallow-water conventional plays, deep water exploration and unconventional exploration are both still in their early stages. Encouraging results from various deep water basins around the world and the dynamic growth of the onshore unconventional plays in North America provide the impetus for operators to extend these plays into the Asia Pacific.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship opportunities are available to highlight your corporate visibility with the expected influential audience.

Delegates are advised that Bangkok traffic is heavy on a Friday afternoon. We recommend flights out (if any) to be made later in the evening so as to not jeopardize your full-day attendance on Friday at the workshop.

Meeting Theme Highlights
  • Deepwater exploration
  • Non-conventional exploration (lacustrine oil shales, coalbed methane)
  • Geologically challenging frontiers
  • Mature oil fields and value-creating development techniques
  • Mature gas fields and ways to keep the value-chain going

This program is final. The Technical Committee has the prerogative to make changes deemed necessary. Sequence of program may change. *Denotes presenter.
