PESA WA invites you to our December Christmas Luncheon and Party – Thursday 12th December. Petroleum industry advances over 50 years: how new technology disrupts old ideas – or – The thoughts of Chairmen Greg and Larry – where has the industry been and where are we going?
Guest Speakers: Greg Smith and Larry Tilbury
Larry and Greg are old enough to have seen profound changes in our industry but young enough to still dream of many more to come.
Charles Lyell’s principle of Uniformitarianism – the past is the key to the present – is a good starting tenet for geos but as Charles Darwin showed we must all evolve or become extinct! Many textbook petroleum ideas have stood the test of time but others have been overtaken by new technology. The process of change in our lives seems much faster than previously and new technology has profound implications for the petroleum industry and the planet.
We’ll reminisce with some old examples that will make your eyes water and some new examples that make our pacemakers race. Our ideas about basins, traps and hydrocarbon movement – their mechanisms and rates – have been revolutionised by new data and complex computer modelling. Many success stories exist using modern 3D and 4D seismic, inversion techniques, deep or long drilling with geosteering, real-time computer scenario modelling, insitu field production monitoring, machine learning of big datasets, DNA type sequencing, isotope analysis, plus the latest insitu nano-scale organic SEM analysis for sweet spot analysis – and we might be game enough to show some without vetting by corporate!
