Computer Simulation of Mass and Heat Transfer Processes in Development of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources
Development of Unconventional oil and gas resources, especially shale oil and gas, is mostly responsible for the dramatic growth in energy supplies over the last few years. North America is now essentially self-sufficient in natural gas and oil owing to the successful development of shale oil and gas resources. While the increase in supply has been a boon for energy consumers and has spurred growth in industries in North America, successful development of Unconventional oil and gas resources in other regions of the world is very limited. This means the global energy industry must seek ways to be more efficient and innovative in other geographical and geological conditions to develop Unconventional oil and gas resources worldwide. This symposium is perhaps the most dedicated event where E&P professionals in the international oil and gas industry can share and discuss the latest in technologies, challenges and solutions to developing and producing the difficult oil and gas reservoirs.
Scope and Topics:
1. Mass and heat transfer in shale gas reservoirs. 2. Mass and heat transfer in shale oil reservoirs. 3. Mass and heat transfer in tight gas reservoirs. 4. Mass and heat transfer in tight oil reservoirs. 5. Mass and heat transfer in gas hydrate reservoirs. 6. Mass and heat transfer in multi-phase flow wellbores. 7. Mass and heat transfer in multi-phase production facilities. 8. Optimization of multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells in shale gas and oil reservoirs. 9. Optimization of multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells in tight gas and oil reservoirs. 10.Optimization of gas production from has hydrate resources.
