World Heavy Oil Conference (WHOC), the international technical and business conference specialized in heavy oil industry, was proposed by CNPC, and initiated by CNPC and Alberta government. This event has been hailed widely by the global heavy oil community. WHOC aims at re-evaluating on a global basis the strategic importance of heavy oil industry at the backdrop of world energy situation in transition, publishing a number of documents on world heavy oil reserves and its new development, studying heavy oil standards, exchanging the most advanced technology in heavy oil development and utilization and promoting international cooperation. It is jointly hosted by CNPC, SINOPEC, CNOOC, SINOCHEM, Alberta government, PDVSA, Saskachewan Government, Federal Ministry of Solid Mineral Development,Nigeria, BPMIGAS, Rosneft, Statoil, Petrobras, Shell EP.

Well Completions Best Practices Using The Completion Efficiency Process

London, UK
This three-day course is designed for reservoir engineers, geologists, petrophysicists, completion engineers, and asset managers involved with completion designs, or with reviewing completion recommendations from service companies. The course will help participants improve completion results and maximize asset value by optimizing stimulation treatments. The “Completion Efficiency” process (SPE 90483) involves the development of a calibrated net pay model to determine if poor production performance is the result of permeability-thickness, reservoir pressure, completion practices, or a combination of these factors. An integrative process stresses using wireline logs, core data, and production test data in order to develop local models and ultimately predict production performance using only a basic log suite and completion information. Diagnostic techniques such as post completion radioactive tracers and production logs are discussed to supplement performance analysis. Subsequent to model development and implementation, a comprehensive review of “best practices” from analog field studies is provided to aid in the optimization of future or existing well completions. Participants will receive a fully functional log analysis calculation spreadsheet that includes calculation of all inputs required to develop calibrated permeability and stress profiles. Comprehensive case studies are provided, and participants are encouraged to provide local examples for discussion of model implementation and “best practices” for their areas of activity. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Course Outline :
Review of Basic Log Analysis Techniques
Log Quality Control and Calibration Steps
Log Data Normalization
Completion Efficiency Model Data Requirements
Net Pay Determination (Stiles-George Technique)
Permeability, Rock Properties and Pressure Model Calibration
Integration of Rock Properties, Permeability, and Pressure Models
Completion Efficiency Exercises
Best Practices for Improving Completion Efficiency
Review of Local Examples and Discussion

Fundamentals of Reservoir Material Balance and Decline Analysis
Houston, USA

This 4-day course is designed for petroleum engineers, technologists and geo-scientists involved in preparing production forecasts, conducting formation evaluation, well testing or reservoir modeling, or estimating oil and gas reserves. The course is also suitable for supervisors and managers requiring a basic appreciation of the fundamentals of these techniques, and the manner in which these basic analytical reservoir engineering tools are utilized. The course is also useful as a refresher course in the basics of decline curve analysis and material balance analytical methods, highlighting the advantages and limitations of each method. The course will cover both the theoretical and practical aspects of decline analysis and material balance analysis. Both type curve fitting and type curve matching techniques will be explained and demonstrated. Examples will illustrate the more commonly used type curve fitting methods, including “hands-on” class problems, and the use of modern computer aided analysis tools will be reviewed. Problems and limitations of decline analysis will be presented and discussed. The material balance module of the course is intended to provide practical methods of applying the material balance approach to reservoir performance and reserves assessments in any reservoir. The course covers the material balance concept for oil, gas, and gas-condensate reservoirs, and also includes explicit material balance techniques which will complement any reservoir simulation effort. Recent developments in “flowing material balance” techniques will also be reviewed. The use of modern computerized material balance software will be reviewed and demonstrated. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
