Event status:
Fully Booked

Deep-water deposits continue to provide major reservoir targets for oil and gas exploration around the world as well as presenting a series of challenges within  developing and producing fields. Considerable effort has been devoted to the understanding of these deposits both in terms of reservoir architecture and quality across the academic-industry interface.

Progress has been made in understanding of whole-system source-to-sink relationships and controls, the mechanics of erosional and depositional processes, and the fine-scale architecture of the resultant deposits. Allied to this progress has been the advancement in characterisation techniques/technologies, which has impacted upon workflows and the ability to analyse uncored as well as cored intervals at a greater level of refinement.

This 3-day international conference will bring academic and industry geoscientists, petrophysicists and engineers together, to share new developments in the following thematic areas:

  • Depositional processes – sediment gravity flows to bottom currents
  • Source to sink – deepwater systems
  • Canyons and channels
  • Confined slope systems – mobile substrates/structure and sedimentation
  • Mass transport deposits
  • Distributive systems
  • Impact on exploration and production outcomes
  • New techniques in reservoir characterisation and modelling

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Joris Eggenhuisen (Utrecht University)

Anna Ponten (Statoil)

Zane Jobe (Shell)

Rob Butler (University of Aberdeen)

Carlos Pirmez (Shell)
