David Semwogerere holds a BSc in electrical engineering (honors, 2012) from Makerere University in Uganda. In 2012, he started work as a junior well testing and completions engineer at Total. His work involved well test design and execution and working with well engineering modeling and drilling parameter software. He was also a nightshift well test supervisor for Total in the upper west Nile exploration and appraisal campaign on four workover rigs. Semwogerere later moved to the China National Offshore Oil Company in 2014 as a well completion engineer in the Kingfisher Albertine exploration region on Lake Albert.
Zainab Titus holds a B.Eng. with First Class Honours from Covenant University, where she graduated as the most outstanding Petroleum Engineering Student in 2015. Owing to her interest in Physics and the numerous awards she had won in Mathematics Competitions locally and nationally during her secondary school days, it was not difficult to identify her predisposition to engineering. Zainab developed a predilection for Petroleum Engineering when on a road trip, she was fascinated by the sophisticated equipment and technology used for oil prospecting activities in the Chad basin of Nigeria. Zainab's engagements with SPE International began in 2013 through her University Student Chapter, where she served as the Technical Officer in 2014. She also interned with ExxonMobil Nigeria and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in 2014, where she worked on projects related to well testing, annular pressure build-up analysis and petroleum economics.
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.
Applications open on 15 November each year, and close on 15 April. By applying for this scholarship you are automatically considered for any SPE Scholarship or Fellowship that you meet the eligibility requirements for. You must submit at least one recommendation and documentation for entry exams (if applicable). U.S. law prohibits provision of certain services to individuals residing in embargoed countries; therefore, not all applicants may be eligible to participate in the Gus Archie Scholarship program. Gus Archie (1907 - 1978), a pioneer in the area of formation evaluation, developed the fundamental quantitative relationships among porosity, electrical resistivity, and hydrocarbon saturation of rocks that laid the foundation for modern log interpretation.

The companies will focus on research and development to reduce CO2 emissions and promote the circular economy. ADNOC’s drilling subsidiary has increased its rig fleet to 95 and plans to add “dozens” more by 2025. The upgrade project will increase the maturing field’s oil production to 485,000 B/D. This work describes a heuristic approach combining mathematical modeling and associated data-driven work flows for estimating reservoir-pressure surfaces through space and time using measured data. By racking up exploration agreements in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Bahrain, Eni took a big step forward in its pledge to tap into the Middle East’s vast swaths of highly prospective oil and gas acreage.
In this paper, after a review of the fundamentals of wettability alteration, a discussion of nanomaterials used for wettability alteration is provided. For the planning of an enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) project in a major mature oil field in east Malaysia, an extensive routine-core-analysis (RCA) and special-core-analysis (SCAL) program has been performed on unconsolidated clastic reservoir rocks.
