On May15st 2017, SPE Section Novi Sad organized presentation, held by SPE distinguished lecturer Mr. Wally Georgie on the subject “Your Field is Getting Older - Is your Process Engineering Still Cost Effective?”.

The lifestyle of developed fields, onshore and offshore, will go through different stages of production up to decline into late field life. Effective reservoir engineering management will lead to prolonging the life of field if a cost-effective processing surface facilities strategy is put in place. Factors that lead to the decline in oil production or increase in operating expense (Opex) may include increased water production, solids handling, and the need for relatively higher compression requirements for gas lifts. To maintain productivity and profitability, an effective holistic engineering approach to optimizing the processing surface facilities must be used. Successful operation of mature fields and their surface facilities requires successful change management to the new operating strategy. Using a holistic approach can maximize the full potential of mature processing facilities at a manageable Capex and Opex.

On February 22st 2017, SPE Section Novi Sad organized presentation, held by SPE distinguished lecturer Mr. Steve Morice on the subject “'Borehole Seismic Solutions for Integrated Reservoir Characterization and Modeling”.

Modern field management increasingly relies on detailed, precise 3D reservoir characterization and timely areal monitoring. Borehole seismic techniques bridge the gap between remote surface seismic observations and downhole reservoir evaluation.

The lecture illustrated the wide range of borehole seismic solutions for reservoir characterization and monitoring, using a diverse set of current and recent case study examples to understand appropriate use of borehole seismic techniques for field development and management. Lecture was also focused on DAS (distributed acoustic sensing), explaining how the technique works (with key advantages over geophones) and its ability to deliver conventional borehole seismic solutions, and its dramatic impact on field monitoring applications and business critical decisions.

On November 24st 2016, SPE Section Novi Sad organized presentation, held by SPE distinguished lecturer Mr. Jim Gouveia on the subject “'Fooled by Randomness' Improving Decision Making With Limited Data”.

Professionals routinely face the challenge of making informed decisions with limited data sets. Our exploitation of unconventional resource plays has exacerbated the problem. Decision making that relies on limited data sets has been driven by competitive pressures and the desire to get to the right answer as soon as possible. Development decisions are often made without due consideration of how representative the data are. Similarly, we frequently test new technologies with limited samples, expecting that a simple arithmetic comparison of the average results can validate or refute their further application.

This talk present the theory and use of aggregation curves as a pragmatic, graphical approach to determining the uncertainty in the sampled mean relative to the desired average program outcome.
