The Class of 88 in Petroleum Studies has been visiting UKA and the department every two years for a number of years. One of the driving forces for this is Torbjørn Hegdal, and this year the group consisted of 23 former students. On Saturday they visited the department and got an update on the developments at NTNU and the department since the last visit by Sigbjørn Sangesland and Jon Kleppe. Torbjørn Hegdal, NOV, Harald Erichsen, ABG Sundal Collier and Tore Gulbrandsøy, Rystad Energy gave presentations on energy development, stock market, future prospects, etc. followed by a brief debate.
NPD has published preliminary production figures for August showing a total liquid production of 1647000 bbl/day. This is a decline of 67000 bbl/day compared to July (-4%). The total gas sales were 8.2 Gm3, which is 15% less than in July.
We are pleased to announce a talk by Zoya Heidari from the University of Texas at Austin.
Title: Formation Evaluation and Rock Physics Model Development in Mixed-Wet Rocks
Time: Friday 20th September, 14.15-15.00
Place: P10, PTS1, Valgrinda.
Zoya Heidari is an associate professor at Hildebrand department of petroleum and geosystem engineering, University of Texas at Austin. She received a Ph.D. (2011) in petroleum engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. She was the founder and director of the Texas A&M Joint Industry Research Program on “Multi-Scale Formation Evaluation of Unconventional and Carbonate Reservoirs” from 2012 to 2015, and the University of Texas at Austin Industry Affiliated Research Program on “Multi-Scale Rock Physics” starting in 2016. She was also a recipient of the 2012 SPE Petroleum Engineering Junior Faculty Research Initiation Award, the 2014 TEES (Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station) Select Young Faculty Fellows award from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, the 2015 SPE Innovative Teaching Award, and the 2016 SPE Regional Formation Evaluation award. Her research areas include petrophysics, borehole geophysics, rock physics, inverse problems, groundwater physics, completion petrophysics, and reservoir characterization of unconventional and carbonate reservoirs. She also leads a research team which develops new methods for reliable interpretation and integration of multi-scale formation data measured in the laboratory or in the subsurface in challenging formations such as organic-rich mudrocks and carbonate formations in order to enhanced reservoir characterization and production planning in both conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
In today’s geoforskning.no a new modeling tool developed by IGP’s Krzysztof Jan Zieba and Maarten Felix is presented. The development is a continuation of Krzysztof’s doctoral thesis and has resulted in the program stoRM, which is complementary to today’s model tools, and reduces the uncertainty in the basin analysis.
