Summer has come and gone, with Stampede, vacations, camps, and smoke in the rearview mirror. It is now time for us to look to the future, to events still to come in the last months of 2018, and to whatever excitement may be in store for us in 2019.
The spring of 2019, will be especially exciting as we will be celebrating a milestone. It is the 50th year of the CSPG Core Conference! Our goal continues to be, having the CSPG Core conference as the highlight ‘post-event’ to GeoConvention, gathering the Geoscience community together, challenging our interpretations, and growing our insight within our industry. Through this conference, many geologists have postulated and discussed over the rocks; whether a pinnacle reefs, tight sand, nano-darcy shale or bituminous reservoir, ideas and thoughts showcased at the CSPG Core Conference have always left a lasting impact. So it is with great honor that we look to celebrate the last 50 years in Canadian Oil and Gas by highlighting how reservoirs have changed over time. ‘The Reservoirs through time’.
The first Core conference was held at the world class AER facility in 1969, the same year oil was discovered in both the U.K and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. Just a few short years prior to the first commercial production of the largest oil resource in the world, the Oil sand in Fort McMurray, AB, began.
The committee is looking to all geologists to submit an abstract or idea that would complement the overall theme of our reservoirs through time. We encourage those who may be working on reservoirs old and new to present your ideas in a more casual environment, and perhaps highlight how the marriage of technology has unlocked hidden potential or breathed new life into what had been forgotten. Re-examining previous core presentations, showcasing the classic reservoirs of our history that established our resource, impact and footprint in the WCSB and across the globe.
Wondering what your core display could showcase? Find a list of ideas below:
□ Geology – stratigraphy, sedimentology, diagenesis, fracturing, petrography
□ Geophysics – seismic prospecting, structural analysis, microseismic
□ Petrophysics – log analysis, rock properties
□ Geochemistry – source rocks, maturity, TOC
□ Geomechanics – rock characteristics, fracability
□ Drilling & Completions – frac design, horizontal drilling, pad drilling
□ Reservoir Engineering – flow analysis, reserve analysis
□ Laboratory Methods – porosity, permeability, special analyses
We would like to thank all the men and woman who have made the past 50 years of geoscience in Canada such an amazing technical field, and look forward to the next 50 years of innovation and ideas.
Those interested are required to submit a brief abstract summarizing their core display between October 19th, 2018 and January 18th, 2019. You will be notified of acceptance the week of February 1st, following which time you will be asked to submit a more detailed extended abstract. Accepted presenters must also be prepared to display a section of core over 1 or 2 tables, posters (four 4’ by 8’ boards are provided for each display), and give a 15-20 minute PowerPoint presentation of their work.
