KAUST Research Conference: Recovery on Difficult Hydrocarbon

KAUST Research Conference: Recovery on Difficult Hydrocarbon

1/31/2018
The KAUST Research Conference 2018: Recovery of Difficult Hydrocarbons is chaired by Professor Tadeusz Patzek and organized by the KAUST Ali I. Al-Naimi Petroleum Engineering Research Center with generous financial support of the KAUST Office of Sponsored Research and the KAUST Industry Collaboration Program (KICP), Industry Engagement Office.

 
 
The main subject of the conference will be improving the description, understanding and modeling of the storage and flow of hydrocarbons in the subsurface: matrix storage, properties and flow, natural and artificial fractures, impact of pressure changes. Participants will gain a more comprehensive understanding of the overall state of the industry. Our objective is to map out possible contributions from different technical fields for improved, integrated reservoir development. We wish to establish a view on what each technical field needs to focus on to provide overall progress for future hydrocarbon reservoir development.
The KAUST Research Conference: Recovery of Difficult Hydrocarbons will highlight and put to debate the overall scenario, and look for technical solutions to enhance recovery from complex oil & gas fields at low costs and environmentally sound with focus on the greater Middle East hydrocarbon province. 
The conference will feature more than thirty-five presentations by renowned experts in industry and academia.  More than one hundred attendees are anticipated, including faculty, students and researchers from leading institutions worldwide, as well as industrial participants.
