Mature Provinces like the North Sea can offer significant opportunities for innovative companies in a low oil or gas price world - much infrastructure has already been built and the location of the great majority of resources/reserves is known.

In addition to ensuring that such infrastructure does not disappear in some decommissioning ‘rush’, some topics that need to be integrated, ‘joined up’, are:

  • The large amounts of data that exists in such provinces that can be used to optimise future performance. Where is it, who owns it?
  • The existence of ‘marginal’ discoveries; there are reportedly (according to the OGA) over 300 of these in the UKCS alone, for example.
  • The availability of low cost development schemes, for example “Minimum Facilities”, which can be tied in to existing infrastructure.
  • Late Life Field Management, including cost reduction, automation, EOR….
  • The Carbon Capture and Storage opportunity, to use abandoned fields and facilities.

We welcome offers of presentations on this topic for our February Finding Petroleum event.

Understanding fractured reservoirs and rocks

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

The fact that fractures are common in the subsurface have been known for at least the last century but the practice of treating reservoirs as fractured rock masses has been extremely slow in becoming a standard industry practice, despite that fact that fields with such reservoirs are known from SE Asia, the carbonates of the Middle East and much more recently, the basement West of the Shetlands.
