Gas saturation and CO2 enhancement potential of coalbed methane reservoirs as a function of depth  

The influence of moisture, temperature, coal rank, and differential enthalpy on the methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) sorption capacity of coals of different rank has ...

Fault displacement-distance relationships as indicators of contractional fault-related folding style  

We present a method of using fault displacement-distance profiles to distinguish fault-bend, shear fault-bend, and fault-propagation folds, and use these insights to guide balanced and retrodefo...

Prediction of channel connectivity and fluvial style in the flood-basin successions of the Upper Permian Rangal coal measures (Queensland)  
Predicting the presence and connectivity of reservoir-quality facies in otherwise mud-prone fluvial overbank successions is important because such sand bodies can potentially provide connectivity b...

DL Abstract


It is quite common for reservoir engineers to adjust the geological modelling without recoursing to the geologists by multiplying the porosity, the permeability, the anisotropy (kv/kh), the rela...


Information on fractured reservoirs is often controversial. Engineers see lost circulation, negative skin and fracture well test signatures. Geologists see only matrix properties in their cores....

Optimising Marginal Fields by Understanding Data and Cost Implications: Reservoir Quality, Architecture, and Economics  
Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam
25-28 May 2014

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together all stakeholders necessary to consider the potential bottle-necks and pinch point related to optimising a field’s production given a full understanding of the necessary components from the reservoir to the well-head.
