Welcome to the United Arab Emirates

This workshop is the outgrowth of continued cooperation between AAPG & EAGE to develop a series of multi-disciplined gatherings dedicated to understanding, completing & producing tight sandstone & carbonate reservoirs.

The growing demand over time & continuous consumption seemed to be behind the idea of ​​seeking other gas and oil resources in the deep & tight reservoirs. Exploration & development activities have increased in the last few years to cover the Middle East requirement of hydrocarbons where it is highly anticipated to be one of the most attractive & technically challenging areas.

R&D Panel Session

Production of tight reservoirs would have been impossible without the groundbreaking innovations in drilling and stimulation technology. With each new resource play, new challenges need to be addressed which do range from exploration, appraisal and pilot stages to the rationalization of factory drilling. It has become vitally important for the industry to put even more focus on R&D to develop knowledge, technology and innovation that can deliver a sustainable competitive advantage and open new frontiers.
