Fault Compartment Seminar

With lower margins for economic oil and gas production, it is even more important to understand sub-surface and place our exploration and production targets optimally. 
Remaining targets may be localized in fault compartments. It is therefore highly important to understand migration, leakage and the sealing capacity of fault compartments over geological and production time scales. The answers of the questions below have potential for high reward.

• What are our methods for predicting migration, leakage and sealing capacity?
• How predictive are we?
• How do we risk these traps?
• How do they behave during production?
• Compartment prediction for carbonate reservoirs- similar or different methods to clastic reservoirs? Different drainage behavior?



The Force Structural Network Group like to accommodate a seminar for learning and sharing knowledge, methodologies and case histories on fault seal and fault compartments from exploration to late life production on any of the topics above.
If you have an interesting story to share: Please submit a short abstract with title and about 10 lines of summary to the organizing committee before March 14th 2017. Send it to sot@statoil.com.  The length of the talk should be 20 min. We will come back with the agenda in early April.
