This two-day workshop is targeted at geoscientists and reservoir engineers who are actively involved in deepwater exploration, development, and technical studies. The goals of the Deepwater GTW include providing a forum that showcases integrated studies of deepwater reservoirs, affording ample opportunity for dialog and lively group discussions, and facilitating interdisciplinary innovation in these challenging environments. Each session will include an IPOD discussion (in-depth discussion on issues, problems, opportunities, and directions).
We are planning a full day of talks and discussions focused on pre-Tertiary (Paleogene) exploration and development, as well as a full day on the Miocene and Pliocene. Most presenters hail from either the asset teams or research teams of some of the most innovative deepwater operators, including Shell, Chevron, Anadarko, Statoil, Noble, BP, Nexen, and Petrobras. Academia and top service providers will also be well represented, both as presenters, and adding to the quality of the group discussions.
For informed, small-group discussions that focus on practical, relevant geosciences, there is nothing like an AAPG Geoscience Technology Workshop. We are very privileged for 2011 to have the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) as a co-sponsor of the Deepwater GTW!
