Third EAGE Workshop on Practical Reservoir Monitoring

Welcome to the Third EAGE Workshop on 

Practical Reservoir Monitoring

1-2 March 2021, Online Event

Workshop Overview

The Third EAGE Workshop on Practical Reservoir Monitoring presents another opportunity to examine the role and impact of reservoir monitoring techniques in improving short-term production profiles of resource fields and yielding full life cycle returns.  

In recent times major global disruptions have forced both companies and individuals to reflect how they operate and work. Meanwhile the price of oil has witnessed levels not seen since the early 2000’s. Against this dynamic backdrop there is also the drive to a low carbon future, which will provide both challenges and opportunities in the future. 

In response, the workshop will seek to explore the technological innovations and best practices which can lead to value generation and contribute towards optimal subsurface management solutions.

Workshop Aim

The workshop aims to examine how the use of modern reservoir surveillance practices can optimize field production, through multidisciplinary data integration and increased digitalization of the field, to maximize value, ensure field integrity and increase recovery factors. The benefits of different approaches to incorporate geophysical, geomechanical and reservoir engineering data for reservoir monitoring purposes will be investigated through case studies and extended discussions. We will also examine key issues surrounding continuous monitoring systems with real-time data processing and visualization demands.

The Third PRM Workshop will be held in The Hague

Participant's Profile

Specialists from leading operators, service companies and academia will come together to exchange insights on the latest developments and value proposition of reservoir monitoring. We encourage oral presentations and posters exploring global perspectives on the use of reservoir monitoring techniques within various geographical and geological settings. Beyond the traditional applications in hydrocarbon reservoirs we also welcome applications in other fields such as hydrogen storage, carbon storage and geothermal reservoirs. As in previous workshops, we will continue to monitor the progress of Permanent Reservoir Monitoring as well as emerging techniques and trends in 4D applications and alternative geophysical methods.
