Ladies and gentlemen!

We invite you to participate in the II International Scientific conference and exhibition “Studies of Petroleum Reservoir Systems: Challenges & Prospects (SPRS-2018)", to be held in LLC "Gazprom VNIIGAZ" on September 19–21, 2018. The conference is supported by Gazprom, Russian gas society and the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Scientists and specialists from universities, academic institutions, research centers, as well as heads and experts of leading Russian and foreign companies will meet to discuss current problems, new opportunities and technologies in the field of studies of reservoir systems (core and fluids) for oil and gas.

The Conference Program includes the Plenary Session, 4 Technical Sessions, Poster session, exhibition and the Closing Round Table.

Plenary Session

· Current status, problems and prospects of studies of reservoir systems (core, fluids) for oil and gas

· Development of a systematic approach to the study of core and reservoir fluids of oil and gas fields in PJSC «Gazprom» (the Corporate system of studies of core samples and fluids)

· Modern methods of researches of core and reservoir fluids.

· Methods for modeling phase behavior of reservoir systems.

Technical Sessions:

Session А. Gas-condensate and gas-dynamic researches of wells

  • Planning of gas-condensate, gas-dynamic studies: Approaches and Technologies.
  • Reserve calculation, forecasting of field development using gas-condensate studies, well test and geological-technological models.
  • Improvement of equipment and methods for taking representative samples of reservoir fluids.
  • Improvement of the methodology interpretation of gas-dynamic researches of wells.
  • Studies of the processes occurring in the bottom-hole zone of gas condensate wells.
  • Modern technologies for the collection, storage and processing of information during gas-condensate and gas-dynamic studies.

Session В. Core analysis of reservoir rocks and rocks-tires oil and gas

  • Methods and results of wellsite services, routine core analysis, petrology and special core analysis.
  • New methods and experience of well logging data interpretation on the basis of complex investigations of core material.
  • The distribution of porosity, permeability, geochemical, etc. properties of reservoir rocks and rocks-tires.
  • New methods of research of elastic-plastic properties of the core material.
  • New approaches to typing of reservoir rocks and tires for the compilation of geological and hydrodynamic models.

Session С. Reservoir fluids and their components

  • Properties and phase behavior of natural gas hydrates and its components.

Session D. Filtration of multiphase systems

  • New methods of experimental studies of multiphase flow in porous media (stationary/non-stationary, the equilibrium/non-equilibrium filtration).
  • Visualization of multiphase flow of fluids in porous media (including the use of tomography and mathematical modeling).
  • New approaches to the interpretation of the results of experimental studies of the multiphase flow using a computer simulation.
  • New approaches to the creation of geological and hydrodynamic models.
