Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

We are honored to invite you to the III International Conference “Development of Hydrocarbon Fields. Topical Issues & Prospects» (HCFD-2014) hosted by Gazprom VNIIGAZ LLC due on October 02–03, 2014 under the auspices of Gazprom.

The forthcoming conference is aimed at discussing challenges of exploration, development and operation fields (including unconventional gas fields) at various development stages, environmental issues of fields development, forecast and various scenarios of gas industry development and natural gas production in Russia and abroad, wells construction, operation and maintenance in complicated mining and geological conditions. Special attention will be paid to innovative technologies in gas production, improvement of the scheme of gas and HC condensate field treatment.

The III International Conference «Development of Hydrocarbon Fields. Topical Issues & Prospects» (HCFD-2014) provides excellent opportunity for managers and experts of the leading Russian and foreign companies, representatives of Russian and foreign scientific organizations, products suppliers and services providers to meet and exchange opinions on the recent studies and developments in HC fields exploration, share accumulated expertise, discuss new opportunities, relevant issues, prospects and innovative technologies.

The Conference Program includes Plenary Session and 3 Technical Sessions. Concurrently the Exhibition “Technology and Equipment for HC Fields Development” will be organized.

Plenary Session — October 02, 2014 — 10:00 — 13:00

  • Global natural gas reserves and resources
  • Forecast and scenarios of natural gas production and fuel and energy complex development in countries and regions worldwide in the ХХI century
  • Innovative methods and technologies of prospecting, survey and exploration of gas resources
  • Exploration, development and operation of new and producing HC fields, including practice and challenges of complicated component structure fields development
  • Environmental aspects of field development

Technical sessions — October 02, 2014  14:00 — 18:00 and October 03, 2014 09:00–15:30

Session A. Geology and Fields development

  • The forecast and scenarios of gas industry development in Russia and adjacent countries
  • Challenges of new HC fields development
  • Technological challenges of gas and gas condensate fields development at the late development stage
  • Unconventional gas fields (coal-bed and shale gases, gas hydrates): the prospects of exploration and the trends of current studies
  • Environmental aspects of field development. Disposal of associated petroleum gas (APG) by means of injection into gas condensate deposits

Session В. Complicated component structure fields development

  • The fields of complicated structure with non — HC components (H2S, helium, high content of CO2 and nitrogen)
  • Experience of H2S fields development and sulfurous gas processing
  • Disposal and temporary storage of non-HC gases in underground formations

Session С. Construction, operation and repair of the wells. Technological issues of gas and НС condensate treatment.

  • New technologies of wells drilling, operation and workover, including at H2S containing fields and fields at the late development stage
  • Innovative technologies in oil and gas production. Innovative methods of wells inflow intensification
  • Improving technologies of gas and НС condensate treatment
  • Methods of preventing hydrates formation, salt deposition and corrosion in gas and НС condensate production systems

Closing Plenary Session — October 03, 2014 15:30–16:00

Official languages of the Conference: Russian and English

Speakers should submit their abstracts in English and Russian languages, the papers and presentations should be submitted in any of two official languages of the Conference. The simultaneous translation will be provided.
