Full Agenda

Thursday, January 23, 2020
London
The Geological Society

We hope that this event will have wide coverage of the rocks, from fractured basement, fractured carbonates (and sandstones) to fractured granites and fractured shales. And from folk working in the Middle east, NW Europe, US, Cornwall etc. And from geoscientists, reservoir engineers.....

Our perception is that a lot of very detailed knowledge lies in 'silos' that could maybe be overcome in big companies but is challenging for E&Ps.

So the easy starting point for this event is to enhance knowledge exchange, networking etc.

In particular we look for examples where understanding fractures is key to understanding a field and its reservoirs, and thereby optimising production (and reducing costs by exploiting the fractures rather than being inhibited by them).

Note this event follows our Jan 2018 Fractured Reservoirs event. You can see the full report from the event, including attendee list, by clicking on the cover below

9:30 David Bamford - Director
Finding Petroleum

Welcome & Introduction



David Bamford is well known around the oil & gas industry both as an explorer and a geophysicist. He holds a Physics degree from the University of Bristol and a Ph.D in Geological Sciences from the University of Birmingham.

Since 2004, he has been a non-executive director at Tullow Oil plc, being recruited for this position especially for his exploration knowledge. He serves on the Nominations and Remuneration Committees, and was chairman of the latter, and Senior Independent Director, for 3 years prior to his retire from the board at the end of April 2014.

He was on the board of Premier Oil from May 2014 to May 2016.

He retired from BP plc in 2003, his last four positions being Chief Geophysicist (1990-1995), Business Unit Leader (General Manager) for first West Africa and then Norway (1995-1999), and finally Head of Exploration until 2003.

He has served on the boards of Paras Ltd, a small exploration and IS/IT consulting company in which he held 22% equity, until its sale to RPS Energy in 2008 and Welltec a/s, a Danish well engineering company, as the nominee of the private equity investor Riverside.

From 2012 to 201 he was on the board of ASX-quoted Australia Oriental Energy as a non-executive director.

He was a founder of Richmond Energy Partners, a small oil & gas research house, and several media companies that focus on the oil & gas sector, and has served as an advisor to Alliance Bernstein, Opus Executive, the Parkmead Group plc, and Kimmeridge Energy LLP. Since retiring from BP, he has undertaken asset and company valuation projects for investment banks, hedge funds and small oil companies.

Reservoir Dynamics

Advances in interpretation of interwell fracture properties from fluctuations in well flowrates


Kes Heffer received an MA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge in 1970 and an MSc in Petroleum Reservoir Engineering from Imperial College, London in 1971. He worked for BP for 29 years, initially in worldwide operations as a petroleum/reservoir engineer, and latterly in research into issues of reservoir description. Since 1999 he has been an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, and has conducted research and consultancy work through Reservoir Dynamics Ltd. His current main research interest is the rôle of geomechanics in the processes of fluid flow in reservoirs, and the degree to which these approach a critical point.
