Integrated Historical Data Workflow: Maximizing the Value of a Mature Asset On the 21st June, SPE WA is proud to bring you another SPE Distinguished Lecturer, Anne Valentine, to Perth to showcase ways in which you can maximise value in mature fields. Industry studies show that mature fields currently account for over 70% of the world’s oil and gas production. Increasing production rates and ultimate recovery in these fields in order to maintain profitable operations, without increasing costs, is a common challenge. This lecture addresses techniques to extract maximum value from historical production data using quick workflows based on common sense. Extensive in-depth reservoir studies are obviously very valuable, but not…Find out more »
David N. Dewhurst, Silvio Giger, Bozkurt Ciftci, Ausama Giwelli, Claudio Delle Piane, Jeremie Dautriat and Ben Clennell Geomechanics and microstructure of faults are intimately linked due to both physical and chemical processes which can have a significant effect on rock strength and flow properties. This presentation summarises the controls on fault rock strength, shale smear continuity in siliciclastic rocks, fault transmissibility in carbonates and the links between microfabric and permeability anisotropy development in sheared clays. These conclusions have been reached through the use of multiple geomechanical and microstructural techniques, including triaxial, ring shear and direct shear box testing supplemented by optical and electron microscopy and measurements of petrophysical properties such…Find out more »
