Geological Process-Based Forward Modeling GTW – Event Review

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

Another success story to add to the list of outstanding Middle East geosciences events! The AAPG Geological Process-Based Forward Modeling GTW was held from 23-25 May 2022 at the Westin Golf & Spa hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE with the main purpose of identifying and discussing key challenges in geological process-based forward modeling, finishing with a concluding session to define a practical way forward.

The debates and discussions that took place throughout the event were extremely enriching and interactive. Delegates had a great opportunity to share their ideas on the way forward, while divulging the industry needs to develop new, additional approaches to reservoir, seal and source rock prediction.

The workshop welcomed 58 attendees from 26 different companies and 13 different countries.

The opening of the event on the 23rd morning included an inaugural keynote by Ashraf Al-Tahini and Maher Almarhoon, Saudi Aramco followed by two technical keynotes by Daniel Tetzlaff, Westchase Software Corporation and Scott Bowman, PetroDynamics.

In total, this 3-day workshop included 26 talks, 15 poster presentations and 5 breakout/discussion sessions.

The event covered the following topics:

  • Current Applications, Lessons Learned and Challenges
  • Multi-Scale Calibration of Geological Processes
  • Modeling Approaches and Applications
  • Integration of Geological Process-Based Forward Modeling
  • Case Studies and Applications
  • Perspectives and Way Forward

Our most sincere appreciation goes to the workshop’s Committee for all their efforts and support. A big thanks also goes to our Platinum Sponsor Saudi Aramco and Table Top Exhibitor Beicip-Franlab. We also want to thank and recognize all the presenters and attendees. Bravo colleagues!
