Upstream Tech 2014

...holding a tin cup below a Niagara Falls of data! 0

Friday, May 23, 2014, London, Royal Society of Chemistry

Technology now offers us a huge diversity of data, from satellites (SAR, gravity), from planes (conventional gravity and magnetics, and especially FTG), all sorts of seismic - 3D and 3C, 4D/Permanent Reservoir Monitoring, passive seismic, CSEM, 24/7 fibre optic measurements along complete well bores, and so on and so forth.

However, our ability to acquire such multi-measurements has completely outpaced our abilities firstly to integrate these diverse data sets and then to interpret them in a 'joined up' way. In fact, only half tongue in cheek, I have recommended that the most useful integration method is that using lots of tracing paper and an old-fashioned light table! Back to the 1980s!

We are "holding a tin cup below a Niagara Falls of data!"

This one day event addresses the issues of integration and interpretation in turn, and I hope that at the end of the day, we will have perceived a way forward, if dimly!

Please come and join us.

Solving the 'big data' problem for basins and plays

Talk Description.
Within this presentation different types of data, generally grouped under ‘Big’ and ‘Small’ will be discussed and how they are incorporated into the Neftex Earth Model suite of products. The right skills needed to become a data scientist will be explored along with various skill, technology and legal hurdles that we face in managing and integrating data at Neftex. We shall explorer climate modelling and climate proxies through conventional ‘Small’ data and ‘Big’ data techniques and evaluate their benefits and limitations. Concluding with some forward plans on how to integrate data.

Michael Kemper - Director, Research Innovation & Development - Ikon Science

Gridless Geomodelling

Talk Description.
In this presentation we present gridless geomodelling, or at worst, just-in-time gridding. Virtually all geomodelling tools grid, or mesh, the subsurface, and these models are so-called geocellular. We all know that for dynamic flow modelling some (finite element/volume) mesh is required – we call that a flow simulator. But why grid a static geological model? We shall explore when gridding is indeed needed, and when not. We shall also point out the significant advantages of geomodelling without an a priori grid. Finally we shall show that gridless geomodelling has some significant rewards for close-the-loop 4D reservoir monitoring workflows.

David M Roberts - Consultant - 3-DMR

Visualisation and Visual Integration 2014

Talk Description.
This presentation comprises an overview of the use of visualisation in the oil industry. It includes examples of both the technical and business value of visualisation, and also many examples of visual integration (sometimes referred to as co-visualisation) using both exploration and development datasets. Visual integration is a powerful technique which the author believes is still vastly under-utilised in the oil industry. Visualisation and visual integration examples will be shown which have been contributed by several oil companies and all the major geoscience software vendors.

David M Roberts worked for BP Exploration for 31 years as a geophysicist and was the companies global visualisation champion for the last 10 years of his time with the company. Dave retired from BP in 2005 and has been happily consulting in the area of visualisation, visual integration and very fast 3D seismic interpretation since then. His business is called 3-DMR and he has clients all over the world.

The Power of 4D Data Integration and Analysis in Reservoir Management

Talk Description.
Co-visualization and analysis of 4D multidisciplinary data should be standard practice in our industry. The tools exist and this talk aims to show, using a live demonstration, the value of integrating all available data, analyzing the relationships between disparate data sets and highlighting some less common data types such as microseismic and lidar. For Reservoir Management it is critical that not only can all relevant data be visualized at any point in time but also that the relationships between datasets can be quantified and used in planning.

20 million B.C. to 2014 Human collaboration – What’s new?

Talk Description.
That due to millions of years of evolution human collaboration is best delivered by a face to face meeting with cognitive artefacts. Secondly that the closer the human machine collaborative interface emulates a real meeting with cognitive artefacts the better the cognition. The better the cognition the better the innovation and the more likely the avoidance of mis-communication and consequent error.
