12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Interactive Group Discussions

The following session will feature a series of interactive group discussions set in a roundtable format. Each roundtable group leader will introduce a concept/case study to the participants followed by an interactive discussion and live feedback.

Why participate?

Interactive group discussions are an excellent opportunity to get straight to the point and ask the questions that you want to know the answers to. The group format also facilitates an excellent opportunity for networking between industry professionals

Roundtable One

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Modernising and updating ESP’s to wireless networks
  • Evaluating remote systems to gain real time data and reservoir controlling through wireless monitoring systems
  • Outlining how to integrate communication channels to maximise production and maintain reservoir health
  • Enhancing ESP efficiency and increasing pump rates to meet targets and reduce failures rates

Roundtable Two

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Integrating Asset Management (IAM) in production optimisation
  • Addressing how integrating reservoirs, wells and *surface facilities modelling helps in achieving overall facility objectives
  • Highlighting how an efficient IAM enables well design verification and production forecasting
  • Evaluating asset performance for choosing the most feasible technology for maximising production

Roundtable Three

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Blending classic and advanced chemical applications for recovery
  • Determining the effectiveness of different chemical methods for enhancing recovery
  • Analysing the optimum solution to maximise recovery by using advanced chemical injections
  • Discussing the returns in different injection techniques and formulating best possible strategies

Discussing the returns in different injection techniques and formulating best possible strategies

Roundtable Four

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Moving forward in adopting optimisation strategies
  • Addressing key challenges the region faces in increasing production levels from reservoirs
  • Access cutting edge insight on the estimates maturing reservoirs in the region hold for crude oil and gas production
  • Discussing the returns in different injection techniques and formulating best possible strategies

Discussing the returns in different injection techniques and formulating best possible strategies

1:30 pm - 2:00 pm Panel discussion: Overall viewpoints of roundtable leaders and key discussions made

The following panel discussion will bring together the roundtable leaders from the previous session to highlight key findings from their roundtables and to provide concluding viewpoints.

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Networking lunch break

3:00 pm - 3:00 pm End of conference

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may
subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with
a speaker with equivalent insight.
