Although the North Sea is a mature basin, the amount of available infrastructure provides an opportunity for high-value projects still to be delivered. Our ability to find hydrocarbons is as good as it ever was, but we are finding less commercial-sized discoveries. North Sea operators need to continue to add value by delivering on exploration promises volumetrically, lowering appraisal and development costs and maximising recovery.
North Sea Reservoirs Series - Devonian Reservoirs Overview
Instructors: Steven Andrews and Stuart Archer
The Devonian of the North Sea represents a total petroleum system! The evolution of Devonian basins and depositional environments will be shared by integrating outcrop data with offshore data.
North Sea Reservoirs Series - Permian Zechstein Carbonates Overview
Instructors: Jo Garland and Peter Gutteridge
Zechstein Carbonates represent a frontier concept in the UK. The Zechstein carbonate play will be explored by integrating UK onshore outcrop data with subsurface data.
North Sea Reservoirs Series - Triassic Reservoirs Overview
Instructors: Gary Nichols and Stuart Archer
The Triassic is a valuable exploration play and late life production target beneath younger reservoirs. Triassic depositional environments will be discussed using core, well and seismic data and integrated with analogues.
Coastal, Deltaic and Shallow Marine Clastic Reservoir Characterisation
November 9 – 12
Instructors: Stuart Archer, Gary Nichols, Ronald Steel
A better understanding of clastic successions in coastal, deltaic and shallow marine settings can lead to improved exploration risking of reservoir presence and quality, reservoir appraisal and development.
Development Planning for Mature Fields
December 7 – 11
Instructor: Mark Cook
This multi disciplinary course equips participants with the knowledge and decision-making skills to create a robust development plan for mature fields through case-based evaluation and planning activities.
A Critical Guide to Reservoir Appraisal and Development
October 12 – 23
Instructors: Stephanie Kape, Pete Smith
Participants will be empowered to collaborate between disciplines and add value in the development of upstream assets, using an integrated subsurface approach with reference to a robust commercial framework.
