The goal is to develop knowledge that can enhance exploration, production, and appraisal efforts in deepwater reservoirs in the Gulf of Mexico. Experienced practitioners and researchers will participate in lively discussions to share both personal experiences and best practices in applying geology, geophysics, and engineering data to the challenges of exploration, appraisal, development drilling, and reservoir characterization and simulation. Sessions will include results of studies on existing fields, as well as exploration frontiers, geophysical issues, and emerging technologies for imaging and data acquisition. The workshop will conclude with “big picture” discussions in which lessons learned are applied to future endeavors. To facilitate the exchange of ideas, there will be no abstracts or publications released from this symposium, much like the very successful SPE Advanced Technology Workshops. Participants will have many opportunities to network and to discuss with fellow practitioners.
RPSEA Ultra-Deepwater Technology Commercialization Manager Art Schroeder will be presenting in Session 1: Challenges in DW Appraisal and Development at 8:45 a.m. on March 16.
