This event is designed for people who need a current view of worldwide oil and gas exploration opportunities and the likely shape of the future industry - such as exploration managers, operators, investors, banks, exploration technology and service providers and tanker operators.

Topics covered include impact of Macondo, European shale gale, West Africa deepwater, Jamaica, Russia, Carpathians, power of independents, advances in on and offshore seismic technology.

Over 100 delegates registered - registration just £450

Introduction from conference producer David Bamford (previously head of exploration with BP):
The Macondo disaster will have major, global, impact on exploration for new oil and gas reserves. From the 'knee-jerk' reactions in Washington to the more thoughtful responses by regulators everywhere, explorers may exit the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, and then face dramatically increasing costs and potential liabilities elsewhere. At one extreme, companies may have to have a significant market capitalisation before they are deemed capable of carrying the risk of dealing with the financial consequences of a major spill.

Companies that remain committed to deep water exploration will look increasingly towards areas outside the United States - to the South Atlantic, the Caribbean, the Arctic perhaps.

Many companies, but especially smaller ones, will turn to onshore exploration - perhaps to the still relatively unexplored areas of Russia and the FSU, to onshore Africa.

Do we have the technologies to explore these new frontiers; do we know how to explore onshore? Broadly the answer is Yes, we do - with one exception. Whereas, for the last 15 years, regional 3D seismic has been a key enabler of exploration activity offshore - the dominant contributor to deep water success, the high cost of land (and transition zone) 3D - based on the use of cables - is a major and significant barrier to success onshore.

These issues are wide-ranging and we - the Finding Petroleum team - have devised the agenda below so that we in the industry can begin to say "This is the way forward!".

Aurelian focuses on Central Europe with licences in Poland, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria, and it is the operator of most of its licences. Aurelian's strategy is to apply proven technologies utilised in the rest of the world that have as yet not been applied in their operational areas due to the history of the region. Aurelian recently announced it intended to exit areas it deems non-core, most notably Romania and Bulgaria, and focus on the Rotiegendes in Poland and the Carpathians in Poland and Slovakia.

Aurelian's most significant current asset is the Siekierki gas field in Poland, which is a tight gas accumulation that will be developed utilising horizontal drilling techniques and multi-stage frac’ing similar to those used in North American gas plays. Exploration will focus on the Carpathians, which have seen very little modern exploration.

Bob Heath - Technical Marketing Manager - iSeis

Wireless Onshore Seismic - “Getting it Together”

Talk Description.
The notion of acquiring land seismic data without resorting to cables is far from new. For more than three decades, this industry has been giving birth to various technologies to make the task in some sense “more possible”.

However, modern wireless hardware comes from a different gene pool and the offspring is expected to cope in a world needing independent, low weight, nodal, continuous recording capabilities. It must be happy in very awkward environments where cable cannot go, and provide ultra-large numbers of channels to record higher quality data.

There are already about a dozen new era systems vying for attention - though not all have been used in anger and some wonder how many will get past their first post- natal examination. This hardware falls into two broad categories: (A) that which has neither any ability to send data to the recorder nor pick up remote control commands from it, and (B) that which can be remotely controlled, and return some amount of data, ranging from QC/status to the whole seismic record. While (generally speaking) Group A hardware is lower in cost to buy and to use, it now seems that only group B has any chance to see adulthood in large enough numbers to make the drastic changes that the land industry needs.

But there is now a new twist in this story. Whereas cablefree continuous record systems have made new acquisition techniques possible (or at least, more practical) they also exposed the next weakest link of the chain - the source controllers. The role for such equipment, devised in an era when all sources were well behaved and under the strict control of the recording system, has now drastically changed, with vibrators, and even some impulsive land sources, required to operate in what looks like an unrestricted free-for-all.

This paper discusses the necessity of instrumentation “getting it together” such that geophysicists are no longer limited by restrictive equipment, and may indulge their imaginations to devise surveys which suit exploration requirements not hardware limitations.
Professional Qualification: Previous Vice Chairman SEG Technical Standards Committee, SEG Silver Medal. Member of EAGE, SEG, PESGB. BSc (Hons) Physics, University of Southampton.

Experience & Organization: Involved in land seismic acquisition techniques, engineering and marketing since 1976. Written large number of articles and papers, given talks, on modern land acquisition. Probably given more talks/articles on cablefree acquisition and future land recording instrumentation than any other.

Accomplishments: Involved in the start up of large number of new seismic instrumentation companies, research and marketing of new seismic systems and techniques. At forefront internationally of bringing new technologies to improve land seismic.

iSeis
iSeis is part of the Seismic Source Company, established about ten years ago to research and design new advanced and specialised source control systems, and is now the world's largest independent company involved in vibroseis research. In 2008 iSeis was established to develop the world's first Next Generation cablefree land seismic system. Taking on board lessons learned from other systems, customer feedback and the better integration of source control suited to cablefree recording, iSeis is now a leading developer of land acquisition hardware. Currently its equipment is acquiring data from what is believed to be the largest seismic spread ever lit up at one go - about 300 sq.miles.

Martin Bett - CEO - Stingray Geophysical Ltd

The light bulb as a symbol of innovation and other things – how to enlighten your reservoir

Talk Description.
The light bulb has long been used as a symbol of innovation, denoting the origination of a smart idea, the sudden flash of understanding or insight into how to achieve something - often in a new, different and pioneering way.

Yet this very symbol of innovation, the incandescent light bulb, has been banned from sale within the EU since September 2009 to force the uptake of more energy-efficient light bulbs.

There are a number of parallels between this and the emergence of fibre-optic based seismic permanent reservoir monitoring (Seismic PRM) solutions. By “listening with light”, optical sensing systems allow operators to maximise production and total recovery whilst reducing risk and cost over the life of a field. Yet, although the business case is compelling, in both situations, adoption has been resisted.

This presentation will explore some of the parallels between the slow adoption of energy-efficient light bulbs and Seismic PRM and postulate on the logical reasons behind illogical behaviour. It will also suggest some approaches for improving our industry’s ability to adopt new technologies in a more timely manner and access the benefits earlier, having a positive and proactive impact on our stewardship of precious hydrocarbon resources.
Martin Bett has over 30 years’ oil industry experience working in operational and management positions for Schlumberger, Landmark, I-NET, Trade-Ranger and QinetiQ. Prior to founding Stingray Geophysical, he has established and grown businesses in Europe, USA, South America and Africa, and has a track record for closing large transactions for new and pioneering products and services. Martin has a BSc in Geophysics from Southampton University, UK, and an MBA with Distinction from the International Institute for Management Development (IMD), Lausanne, Switzerland.

Brad Birkelo - - Spectraseis

Novel seismic reservoir characterization

Talk Description.
The fluid content of reservoir rocks is probably the single most important piece of information about an oil and gas reservoir. Typically this is measured during the logging of wells for exploration and field development. Once production starts the fluid system changes and can only be measured by drilling and logging more wells, which still only provides a snapshot in time. Low Frequency (LF) seismic data provides a surface measurement of reservoirs fluids and can be repeated quickly and cost-effectively. LF fluid signals are generated through the interaction of the earth’s natural energy with the reservoir. No active source is required and acquisition logistics are relatively light. LF seismic data has potential applications at any point in the exploration and production lifecycle where a measurement of the fluid system is useful. By offering a unique and complementary measurement of the reservoir fluid system that integrates with conventional G&G data to paint a more complete picture of oil and gas reservoirs, LF seismic data improves outcomes, from reducing exploration risk through to mapping remaining reserves.
Brad Birkelo, a 24-year member of SEG, has served the Society in a number of capacities over the years. He was secretary-treasurer in 2006–07, chaired the Finance and Audit Committee in 2007–08, and is vice-chairman of the Strategic Finance Policy Committee for 2007–09. He served as chairman of the DISC Subcommittee (2003–05) and the SEG/EAGE Joint DISC Committee (2004–05), and was a member of the Committee on Nominations (1999–2001). He is currently a member of the Continuing Education, Membership, Online Technology, and Online Content committees. Birkelo previously served as president of the Permian Basin Geophysical Society (1998–99). He is an active member of SEG, AAPG, EAGE, and the Geophysical Society of Houston.

Birkelo received his MS in geophysics from the University of Kansas (1987) and degrees from the University of Minnesota (BS geology in 1982 and BS geophysics in 1983). He recently joined Spectraseis as principal geophysicist where he will work on integrating low-frequency passive seismic data with conventional oil and gas data. He is an owner of Digital Prospectors, an oil and gas consulting firm, and managed their Houston, USA, office for the past 10 years. Prior to Digital Prospectors, Birkelo worked for Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA, and Odessa, Texas, USA, where he processed and interpreted seismic data on numerous exploration and development projects. He has also worked for the U.S. Geological Survey, Water Resources Division; Kansas Geological Survey; Minnesota Geological Survey; and Delta Environmental Consultants. He is a licensed professional geoscientist in Texas.
