The technical sessions mentioned overleaf should broadly revolve around the following key points:

Integrating Petrophysics in de-risking Exploration
The topic focuses on Petrophysics as an important cog in the wheel of exploration. Integration of Petrophysics with other G&G data adds immense value to mitigate the inherent uncertainties in exploration of frontier and emerging Basins. Works and papers involving the use of Petrophysics in derisking exploration of unconventional plays and other capital intensive projects such as deep water exploration may be deliberated. Studies relating to integrating Core analysis into workflows of MEMs, NMR Petrophysics and spectroscopy could be discussed. Petrophysical insights for fine tuning reservoir characterization and techno economics of complex reservoirs, applications of Petrophysics and formation evaluation in Petroleum Resources Management System may be dealt at length.
Maximizing Asset value in Brown fields and Mature Basins
Managing matured fields or fields that have reached the declining stages of production has been one of the greatest and most complex challenges faced by E&P companies worldwide. The topic is intended to evince interest among participants in multi domain studies related to extending the economic producing life of brownfields. By maximizing the asset value in declining fields, companies aim to improve overall efficiency of the existing assets, bring in breakthrough technologies to control water cut and flooding, enhance production and reduce operating costs. Papers or works relating to advancements in production logging for sick well analysis, production/injection profiling and other well interventions can be subjects for deliberation. Papers or works dealing with field re-development plans, time lapse measurements and studies, exploring additional reserves and bypassed hydrocarbons through re-evaluation of existing data or through additional logging programs may be deliberated. Other interesting areas for discussion are challenges and opportunities in developing marginal fields through optimization of well platforms and implementing improved reservoir surveillance for effective reservoir management.
Geomechanics in E&P life cycle
The Geomechanical continuum in oil& gas fields begin at their exploration stage, affects through the appraisal and development stages up until their eventual abandonment. Integration of Geomechanics with standard E&P workflows enables the reduction of risks associated with drilling, production and field development by improved understanding of subsurface challenges for both conventional and unconventional plays. The session would focus on geomechanical modelling for safe drilling, geosteering and well placement, infill drilling, completion design, production, recovery etc. Geomechanical insights for wellbore stability, hydraulic fracturing, sanding prediction, etc. with broader understanding on stress anisotropies may be deliberated at length. Induced stress in oil & gas fields due to production/injection related changes in pore pressure could contribute to compaction and subsidence, fault and fracture reactivation, loss of fluids, loss of seal, and well integrity problems. Papers on integrated case studies and new approaches addressing all such issues are invited for intense deliberation thru this forum. Works on rock physics and Geomechanics integrated seismic modelling and time-lapse, or 4D, Geomechanical monitoring for predicting changes in reservoir properties during the life of the field are also solicited for presentation and publication.
Testing, completion and well surveillance in new energy paradigm
This section aims to deliberate on advancement in technology for production testing through Tubing Conveyed Perforation-Drill Stem Testing, multiple zone testing (Cross-fire) and further on artificial lift, intelligent completion/ ICD/ segmented completion etc. Real time reservoir characteristics in static & dynamic conditions and transmission through wireless & satellite communication can also be discussed. Papers are invited on well integrity and well surveillance through Rig-less intervention operations in development wells as well. Advancement in different types of fracking and Gravel pack technologies and value additions there upon may be deliberated. Alternative techniques to hydraulic fracturing like Pulse Plasma technology, Gas frac (LPG, CO2 etc.), Fishbone stimulation (jetting) technology etc.in the exploration and exploitation especially for difficult reservoirs and non-conventional hydrocarbon deposits can also be included. Further papers can also be submitted on challenges in Well intervention, well salvaging & related services along with latest technology available worldwide.
Hydrocarbon to low-carbon and no-carbon: Attaining financial resilience in new energy paradigm
In the current global economic and environment scenario and as per defined key drivers of India’s energy strategy, we must deeply ponder as the world transitions to a low-carbon future aiming towards net zero. With that perspective, this technical session aims to deliberate on different sustainable, low carbon, clean and green energy solutions like Geothermal, Coal Bed Methane, Gas Hydrates, Uranium etc. Another significant topic is CCUS that refers to a suite of technologies that can play a diverse role in meeting global energy and climate goals. CCUS portfolio includes technologies for capture, transport, storage, monitoring, and well services—to develop and deploy solutions to enable a net-zero future for the energy sector and beyond. Advanced energy technology like fit-for-purpose CO2 compression technology etc. is critical to any CCUS project. Papers are invited across the industry and academia discussing and putting forth the newer lights on these future dynamics. And finally, on this very session, different pertinent energy regulatory aspects and Techno-economic decisions may be thrown light upon via technical contributions and deliberations
Value unlock from emerging technologies
‘DATA is the new OIL’ is a perfect metaphor in E&P industry. Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) provide an opportunity to upstream oil companies to minimize uncertainty and improve Asset health with enhanced operational efficiency by applying deep learning techniques and technologies. Within the Petrophysical domain, machine learning has been used to speed up workflows through automated outlier detection, well log repair & normalisation, automated well log correlation and predictive analytics. Innovative works and approaches adopted for data driven evaluation or analysis may be dealt under this technical session. Since E&P business deals with huge amount of real time and legacy data, effective data management becomes essential. Hence, renewed efforts and workflows for breaking all barriers in new age Database management is solicited in this forum. Also technical contributions are invited on emerging technology in Wireline, LWD & Mud logging data acquisition and its evaluation. Maximizing efficiency through innovative methods in Formation Evaluation is the need of the hour. All novel and unique robust approaches and leveraging the global analogues are solicited for in depth deliberation
