Join Bruce Walker during Session 3 at the 2015 APPEX Regional Conference in Nice, France as he speaks about 'Exploration Hot Spots in North West Europe'. This presentation will review the key frontier plays that remain in Northwest Europe and look at the companies which are positioning themselves to explore these regions.

Nearing the end of the presentations during Session 4, Stuart Lake will present a paper focusing on exploration along the transform margin and some of the possible conclusions the play mapping, common risk segment maps and dry hole analysis have revealed. You can hear this talk at the APPEX Regional 2015 in Nice, France on 6 November.

The Wolfcamp formation in the Permian’s Delaware Basin kicks out impressive volumes of hydrocarbons. The play is considered to have great promise, as it’s currently viewed as a kind of adolescent in terms of its maturity.

Production of tight reservoirs would have been impossible without the groundbreaking innovations in drilling and stimulation technology. With each new resource play, new challenges need to be addressed which do range from exploration, appraisal and pilot stages to the rationalization of factory drilling. It has become vitally important for the industry to put even more focus on R&D to develop knowledge, technology and innovation that can deliver a sustainable competitive advantage and open new frontiers.

Explorer Director’s Corner

Unconventional resources have changed the exploration and production business and are changing our profession. It’s a change for the better, where today geoscientists and engineers work closely to identify prospective areas, drill them and optimize recovery of hydrocarbons from the reservoir.

Modelling carbonate sequences and reservoirs has always been a challenging task. Carbonate rocks are generated and subsequently modified by a large variety of biological, physical and chemical processes that start at the time of deposition and end today. To unravel the geological evolution and history of carbonate sequences is fundamental not only for understanding their hydrocarbons potential but also for their role as potential reservoirs for renewable energy (geothermal) or geological gas storage (CO2 and hydrogen). Several science disciplines are often involved to fully understand the characteristics of carbonate rocks and old approaches and new technologies and tools are nowadays applied in these types of sequences. The objective of this meeting is to allow scientists and engineers working on carbonate rocks in academia and industry to share their most recent experience, work, approaches and use of innovative technologies to increase the understanding of the very complex world of carbonates.

VG Abstract

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.
