ERE1.11Recent advances in petroleum exploration and production
|Convener: Said GACI | Co-Convener: Olga Hachay|
Recently decreases in the world oil/gas reserves imply that energy producers and consumers are facing a major challenge. Therefore, an aggressive exploration and production strategy needs to be carried out to sustain the world energy production level. This session is devoted to present the newest advances in oil and gas research. It covers the following topics and other relevant issues: case studies of numerous exploration technologies as well as their associated environmental and economic benefits, seismic (high resolution 3-D seismic; -passive seismic; 4-D time-lapse imaging, etc.), high-resolution gravity and aero-magnetic surveys, exploration of unconventional oil/gas resources, remote sensing, as well as enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods.
