2nd Edition: Decision Based Integrated Reservoir Modeling

7-9 December 2020
Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia

Following the successful 1st edition of the Decision based Integrated Reservoir Modeling GTW, the 2nd edition will focus on the latest technology and cost-effective approaches for building accurate and predictive 3D reservoir models for the oil and gas industry. Integrated reservoir modeling plays a pivotal role in the E&P workflow, where 3D quantitative geocellular models provide essential input for major oil and gas field development decisions. Static and dynamic data integration, new developments in 3D reservoir modeling techniques, and uncertainty quantification associated with reserves estimation, will be just a few topics, among others, to be tackled and discussed during the workshop.

Benefits of Attending

Just like many industries, the oil and gas industry is embracing machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology that is expected to fundamentally transform the way we quantitatively characterize and model subsurface reservoirs. Fascinating geoscience-related ML and AI technological innovations, including challenges and opportunities, will be presented and debated. Will ML and AI help us achieve enhanced accuracy and cost-effectiveness when it comes to reservoir properties prediction and 3D reservoir modeling in complex reservoirs with large multi-disciplinary data?

The workshop will also include case studies presentations underscoring how advanced reservoir modeling technology and rigorous multi-disciplinary data integration facilitated the successful execution of complex field increments. Discussions are also expected on the most common pitfalls to avoid.

An optional 2-day field trip is planned in connection with the workshop.

Who Should Attend?

Geologists, geophysicists, reservoir modelers, petrophysicists, reservoir simulation engineers, reservoir management engineers, project managers, data scientists, and team leaders working in exploration, field development, and technology innovation.


2nd Edition: Decision Based Integrated Reservoir Modeling - Call for Papers Ends on 07 November, 2020

You are invited to prepare a poster display for presentation. If you are interested in participating, please send a short abstract to jbhatia@aapg.org. All posters will be produced as pull-up banners and delivered by AAPG. There will not be any other format available for poster display.
