Emmanuel Ikehi holds a BEng in petroleum and natural gas engineering (first class honours, 2015) from the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Nigeria. His research thesis entitled Application of Intelligent Well Completions in Optimizing Production from Oil Rim Reservoirs focused on the modeling of inflow control device (ICD) performance in oil rims. In 2013, Ikehi served as a petroleum engineering intern at the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company. His journey to the Imomoh Scholarship began in 2012 when he inspired his course mates to form an SPE student chapter. He went on to become the pioneer secretary of the newly formed chapter.
Decisions in E&P ventures are affected by Bias, Blindness, and Illusions (BBI) which permeate our analyses, interpretations and decisions. This one-day course examines the influence of these cognitive pitfalls and presents techniques that can be used to mitigate their impact. Bias refers to errors in thinking whereby interpretations and judgments are drawn in an illogical fashion. Blindness is the condition where we fail to see an unexpected event in plain sight. Illusions refer to misleading beliefs based on a false impression of reality. All three can lead to poor decisions regarding which work to undertake, what issues to focus on, and whether to forge ahead or walk away from a project. Strategic thinking and planning are key elements in an organisation’s journey to maximise value to shareholders, customers, and employees. Through this workshop, attendees will go through the different processes involved in strategic planning including the elements of organisational SWOT, business scenario and options development, elaboration of strategic options and communication to stakeholders. Examples are provided including corporate, business unit and department case studies. This seminar will teach participants how to identify, evaluate, and quantify risk and uncertainty in everyday oil and gas economic situations. It reviews the development of pragmatic tools, methods, and understandings for professionals that are applicable to companies of all sizes. The seminar also briefly reviews statistics, the relationship between risk and return, and hedging and future markets.
SPE, through its Energy4me programme, will present a free one-day energy education workshop for science teachers (grades 8–12). A variety of free instructional materials will be available to take back to the classroom. Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its importance while discovering the world of oil and natural gas exploration and production. Energy4me is an energy educational public outreach programme that highlights how energy works in our everyday lives and promote information about career opportunities in petroleum engineering and the upstream professions. SPE’s Energy4me programme values the role teachers and energy professionals play in educating young people about the importance of energy.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share.

For thin-oil-rim reservoirs, well placement, well type, well path, and the completion methods must be evaluated with close integration of key reservoir and production-engineering considerations. For thin-oil-rim reservoirs, well placement, type and path, and well-completion methods, should be evaluated with close integration of key reservoir- and production-engineering considerations.
The XamXung field offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, is a 47-year brownfield with thin remaining oil rims that have made field management challenging. The dynamic oil-rim movement has been a key subsurface uncertainty, particularly with the commencing of a redevelopment project. In this paper, the authors describe a project to design, field trial, and qualify an alternative solution for real-time monitoring of the oil rim in carbonate reservoirs that overcomes these disadvantages.
Africa (Sub-Sahara) An initial drillstem test on the Mzia-2 well in Block 1 flowed at a maximum rate of 57 million ft3 of gas per day, increasing the estimated recoverable resources from the field to 4.5 trillion ft3. This is the first test carried out on a Cretaceous discovery in deepwater offshore Tanzania. BG (60%) is the operator in partnership with Ophir Energy (40%). Asia Pacific Production has begun from the Wei Zhou 6-12 oil field in the Beibu Gulf basin in the north part of the South China Sea. The project has 10 producing wells drilled at an average water depth of 29.2 m. CNOOC has a 51% operating interest in partnership with Roc Oil, Horizon Oil, and Oil Australia. Salamander Energy signed production-sharing contracts for the Northeast Bangkanai and West Bangkanai license areas, onshore central Kalimantan in Indonesia. Each area covers approximately 2,214 sq miles.
