1st AAPG/EAGE PNG Petroleum Geoscience Conference & Exhibition

PNG's Oil and Gas Industry: Maturing Through Exploration, Development, and Production

25-27 February 2020
  |  
Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Sponsored By:
PNG’s Oil and Gas Industry Maturing Through Exploration, Development and Production

The 1st AAPG/EAGE Papua New Guinea Petroleum Geoscience Conference & Exhibition is designed primarily for those who explore for petroleum accumulations, appraise them and seek to develop them as producing oil and gas fields. Petroleum Geoscientists of all kinds from: wellsite geologists to exploration program managers; geophysicists to geochemists; and stratigraphers to sedimentologists, and all those others who contribute to the elucidation of the hydrocarbon endowment of a place like Papua New Guinea are most welcome.

Whilst petroleum engineering is not a theme of this conference, we will endeavour to include select papers on oil and gas fields and their reservoirs and production where it pertains to the subsurface science of the accumulation of petroleum. Whilst stating the obvious interest of petroleum geoscientists, specialists in many aspects of geology and other disciplines may also wish to attend. The amazing structural geology of Papua New Guinea arising from its location at a major plate margin should attract structural geologists from around the world amongst many other specialists. Aside from the science, the Conference will necessarily update all those in the industry who are concede with development and commercialisation as we conjecture new development along side the exploration potential of new frontiers to be explored like the deep water areas of the Gulf of Papua into the Coral Sea.

The conference comes two decades since the last of the inaugural series of Petroleum Conventions of the 1990s were run in Port Moresby by the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum which is a local supporter of this event. There is thus two decades of exciting petroleum geoscience and fertile knowledge to shared since those last scientific meetings took place during which time many more fields have been discovered and the large gas discoveries developed and put into production.

Instructor: Dr Moyra Wilson, University of Western Australia

Overview

This 1 day practical core workshop will focus on the study of a range of cores through Cenozoic carbonate successions and reservoir units from the Gulf of Papua. The cores, including reservoir units from the Gulf of Papua, are also direct analogues for the prolific carbonate reservoirs of the onshore Eastern FoldBelt, PNG, and show similarities with a variety of reservoir units from the broader SE Asia region. The workshop will cover depositional, diagenetic and pore system characterisation of reefal buildups and more extensive, non-reefal carbonate platform systems. The aim is to lead participants towards an enhanced understanding of the variability in carbonate systems, their reservoir potential and influencing factors. Other topics covered will include: climatic and marine environmental change during the Cenozoic, principles of carbonate geology, carbonate platform development, carbonate diagenesis, including karstification and dolomitisation, as well as reservoir heterogeneity. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to study some amazing reservoir units from PNG’s highly varied Cenozoic carbonate systems through this practical workshop.

Suitable for:

The core workshop will suit anyone with a passion to learn more about the petroleum systems of PNG, reservoir development and carbonate systems and reefs through a practical ‘hands-on’ approach. Geoscientists and non-geoscientists alike, from novice to experienced personnel are welcome to join and we look forward to your active participation.

Date: Monday 24 February 2020 (1 day)
Instructor: Steve Begg, DecisionsDecisions, Australia

Overview:

There is strong evidence that many Oil and Gas projects are plagued by large cost and schedule overruns, or significant under-performance in productivity and other metrics used to justify decisions.

Business outcomes are largely determined by two factors: the decisions we make and uncertainties over which we have no control. The best we can do to get good outcomes is to make good decisions. But have you ever been taught how to make a good decision? Would you know a good decision if you saw one?

This workshop will introduce key concepts in Decision Analysis (DA) and the Decision Dialogue Process (DDP) – a non-proprietary, rigorous (scientifically underpinned) approach to decision-making, used for over 40 years in a variety of sectors such as oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, IT, military, aviation, environment ….. Together, they provide a prescriptive, pragmatic, auditable methodology (process and tools) to help people create and evaluate choices, leading to high quality, compelling decisions. The methodology is entirely scalable in that its principles can be implemented within a few minutes or over weeks or months, depending on the nature and importance of the decision. Thus it is applicable from relatively small investments (hiring an employee; choosing a supplier of services or software) through to major decisions (acquiring leases; drilling; project developments; or organizational strategy). It is equally applicable to personal decisions.

The workshop will cover the key conceptual ideas that are required to make good decisions and introduce a model that is applicable to most decisions that require a modicum of thought. Attendees will be expected to respond to questions about decision-making and engage in small group discussions and exercises.

Who Should Attend

All people who make, or provide input to, decisions - from relatively minor decisions (e.g. to collect data or do “studies”, analysis, interpretation) up to major investment or strategic decisions. Suitable for all geoscientists, engineers and people involved in commercial, economics, business development, strategy.

Instructor’s Profile

Steve Begg is an oil and gas industry expert on decision-making under uncertainty, including asset and portfolio economic assessments and the psychology of decision-making, particularly bias assessment and mitigation. He is co-author of the book, “Making Good Decisions”, commissioned by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He is an Emeritus Professor of Petroleum Engineering and Management at the Australian School of Petroleum at the University of Adelaide, where he has worked since 2002. For six years, he was Head of the School. Before joining The University of Adelaide, Steve was Director for Decision Science and Strategic Planning with Landmark Graphics Corporation (a Halliburton company) where he was responsible for leading improved economic evaluation and decision-making for both Landmark and its customers. Earlier, he worked with BP for 13 years, the last 6 of which were spent in a variety of senior geo-science and engineering operational assignments in Alaska, which spanned production forecasting, economic evaluation, petroleum engineering, and reservoir characterization roles. He also spent seven years as a researcher and Project Manager with BP Research, where his focus was on risk and uncertainty assessment related to reservoir modeling. His decision-making expertise is grounded in his understanding of the industry, surface and subsurface.

Steve has published numerous papers on topics such as: decision-making under uncertainty; asset and portfolio investment evaluation/economics; psychological factors in judgement & decision-making (bias assessment and mitigation when eliciting subject-matter-expert opinions’ and uncertainty assessments); and reservoir characterization (heterogeneity/uncertainty modelling and up-scaling). He was instrumental in starting the SPE Economics and Management journal. His contributions to decision-making and economic evaluation have been recognized by receiving the SPE Asia-Pacific regional award, and in 2016 the SPE’s top International Award, for the Management and Information discipline.

Steve holds a PhD degree in Geophysics and a BSc degree in Geological Geophysics from Reading University and has attended executive education short courses at MIT and the University of Texas.

Instructor: Ken McClay, Professor of Structural Geology

Overview:

This 2 day short course will focus firstly on the development of extensional basins, rifts and passive margins followed by inversion of these systems and the formation of thick and thin-skinned thrust belts. Extensional fault geometries, segmentation and linkages will be analysed as well as the architectures of extensional basins illustrated with field examples from the Gulf of Suez and Northern Red Sea as well as seismic examples from rift basins and passive margins. Inversion systems will be discussed in the context of how basement rift fault systems influence and control inversion geometries. Thick and thin-skinned orogenic systems will be examined in the context of inverted basins and thin-skinned thrust systems using examples from PNG, the Pyrenees, the Zagros fold and thrust belt and other systems. Characteristic structural styles and hydrocarbon systems in these terranes will be will be copiously illustrated using field, seismic, physical sand box and numerical models.

Who should attend:

Final year Geoscience students; starting geoscientists in the petroleum industry as well as mid- senior level geoscientists needing modern concepts of structural geology for the petroleum industry.
