From Pore Space to Pipeline – leading subsurface conference returns for 15th year
The organisers of DEVEX, a leading subsurface conference, officially launched the 2018 Conference yesterday. Working together, from pore space to pipeline will be the theme for the 2018 Conference which is now in its 15th year. It is the only technical conference of its size which is focused on the full cycle of reservoir discovery, evaluation, development and recovery in the UK and provides opportunities for engineers and geoscientists to come together and share knowledge.
The Chair for the 2018 Conference, Brenda Wyllie from the Oil and Gas Authority and Vice President of SPE Aberdeen said “I am pleased to be asked to Chair DEVEX 2018 on behalf of the SPE Aberdeen Section and look forward to helping the Technical Committee develop a strong program that brings together Engineers from Geoscience, Subsurface and Facility disciplines.
DEVEX is entering its 15th year and has a reputation for showcasing Operator case studies with excellent examples of collaboration, cost savings and innovative use of technology.
SPE, PESBG and AFES are working collaboratively to provide a two day conference that provides a high quality, local conference to assist in professional development and training.
The organisers would once again like to make DEVEX free to attend, or at least with a minimal entry fee, to ensure it is accessible for all those wishing to join this important conversation. Companies pledging their support so far are Apache, BP, Chevron, CNR, ConocoPhillips, Nexen, Premier Oil, Shell and TAQA.
DEVEX 2018 will take place on the 8th and 9th May at the AECC. Organisers will soon be issuing a call for abstracts and will be seeking papers on frontier exploration; advanced recovery mechanisms – waterflood to EOR; near field opportunities; facilities enhancements to improve efficiency; big data; field rejuvenation and late life well optimisation and of course case histories on maximising production and on successfully bringing shut in wells back on stream.
Back by popular demand will be expert-led masterclasses, a Young Professionals event and Core will be on display.
