Rock typing: Application in reservoir modelling and development – Tuesday 15th October

Abstract: The ultimate objective of rock typing is to drive a framework for rock property distribution within 3D reservoir models that both honours the well data and predicts reservoir properties in un-cored wells and between wells (Hollis et al., 2010). Rock typing is an important input to successful reservoir study, drilling, production and water injection. Importance and objectives of rock typing, methodologies, requirements, pitfalls and optimal set of data for rock typing will be discussed and a case study will be presented to highlight the value of rock typing in the field development and water injection projects.

AGM & ‘Why young people should join our great industry’ – Tuesday 12th November

Please join us for our Annual General Meeting.

Following this we are pleased to welcome Charles Furness-Smith, from Lambert Energy. He will be presenting an overview of the industry and what can be expected in the coming decades. The presentation will focus on the opportunities that are available to young professionals interested in joining this industry.
