Petroleum Group At the forefront of petroleum geoscience...

The Petroleum Group aims to encourage the sharing and dissemination of information at the leading edge of petroleum geoscience. The extended abstract books for conferences from 2007 to the present are available to download. There is also a selection of petroleum related documents that may be of interest to our members.

Advances in Production Geoscience as an enabler for maximising economic recovery and ensuring a future for the UKCS

6-7 June 2018, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen 

Out of adversity comes opportunity. A significant change is required in the North Sea petroleum industry to keep it profitable and growing, and geoscience has the opportunity to lead the way in delivering this change. New plays, fields, technologies and alliances are required in order to increase recovery and reduce the cost of delivering hydrocarbons. In 2014 the Maximising Economic Recovery UK [MB1] report suggested that 12-24bn barrels of oil equivalent remained to be produced from the North Sea[MB2] . This conference aimed to show how geoscience is helping to develop and recover as much of this remaining hydrocarbon as possible. It showcased a range of solutions maximize economic recovery from the UKCS.

Eastern Mediterranean – An emerging major petroleum province 

29-30 May 2018,  The Geological Society

In recent years the Eastern Mediterranean region has witnessed growing interest from international energy companies. Substantial gas reserves have been found in Egypt's Nile Delta Basin and in the Mediterranean coastal areas since 1995, and in more recent times Noble Energy has discovered a series of substantial gas fields off the Israeli coast.  Several countries have been announcing licensing rounds in recent years.

A key objective of the meeting was to seek a strong set of papers to highlight in greater depth recent discoveries such as those of the prolific Pliocene Nile Delta province and the more recent ENI Zohr supergiant carbonate discovery and the successful clastic plays in the Levant Basin. Results from Totals current drilling campaign in Cyprus Blk 11 will also drive interest in the region.
