Description

2020 RESERVOIR TECHNOLOGY SYMPOSIUM

The Reservoir Study Group is hosting its flagship, Annual Reservoir Technology Symposium as a fully virtual event spread over two half days, the mornings of September 24th and 25th, 2020. The 2-day event will include both Unconventional and Conventional topics and include a reunion of the keynote panel to continue to discuss the questions on the minds of attendees.

The theme of this year’s event is RESERVOIR MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH THE FIELD LIFECYCLE. We see mature fields implement EOR and CO2 re-injection to squeeze more out for minimal cost and environmental impact.  Producing assets are drawing on sophisticated computer systems to optimize production and utilizing innovative data acquisition to more efficiently develop remaining resources.  Advanced seismic imaging and integrated core analysis enable detailed subsurface characterization which leads to developments as big as new fields.  New discoveries are being commercialized in the most challenging conditions yet.  Through the field lifecycle, technology continues to step forward unlocking resources, but we are far from the ceiling, what technologies will drive reservoir management to the next level?
