‘Seismic through the asset lifecycle’.
11 May 2017
Call for Abstracts
Seismic 2017 is the first conference of its kind in Aberdeen to focus on seismic acquisition, processing and interpretation.
This conference will explore the entire spectrum of seismic, covering seismic technology, exploration, development and production throughout the lifecycle of the asset.
We are looking for 200 word abstracts for presentations of 25 minutes on topics including but not limited to acquisition, processing, reprocessing, interpretation, reservoir characterisation and case histories, through all stages of the asset lifecycle from new frontier to decommissioning. Case histories should demonstrate innovation and the value of new seismic technology and presentations should aim to educate and inspire.
The one-day Conference will also provide more in depth information about the 40,000 line kilometres of new and legacy seismic data that the Oil and Gas Authority has released from the Rockall Trough and Mid-North Sea …Find out more »

Verifying Performance and Capability of New Technology for Surface and Subsurface Facilities.
SPE Distinguished Lecturer Ed Grave, Exxon Mobil.
As we have seen with the advent of the shale oil revolution in the United States, the development of new technology plays an important role in the oil and gas industry. It’s an enabler in reducing capital costs, simplifying production and increasing capacity of new or existing facilities. It can make a marginal project into a profitable development.
Progressing technology, while dealing with significant risk, is a challenge that can be overcome through a technology qualification process. A Technology Qualification Program (TQP) provides a means to identifying the risks and taking the correct steps to mitigate it; not avoid it.
This lecture summarizes the required steps involved in qualifying technology and how to keep track of technology development through the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) ranking system. In addition, some of …Find out more »
Dry Hole Analysis: What I Have Learnt About the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry from My Failures.
SPE Distinguished Lecturer Steve Mackie, Santos Ltd.
Finding and producing oil and gas are the major objectives of any upstream oil and gas company. Both, however, can be highly elusive. Dry hole analysis is an exploration methodology to determine what can be learnt from drilling failures. Using a series of case studies from my own career I look at what we can learn from “failures” – not just those that occur during exploration, appraisal and development but also those that relate to the business as a whole. Having worked for all types of companies – multinationals (both Euopean and USA), local Australian companies and even my own consulting I have been exposed to many and varied management and organisational models. In each case the distilled learnings are universal and applicable at any …Find out more »
