SPE Live: Reservoir Sampling: Why? When? Where and How?
Deciding whether to develop a new discovery is often about the data. Without the correct understanding of the fluids in the reservoir, projects are unlikely to turn out as planned.
As conventional oil becomes a scarcity, new discoveries bring deeper, hotter, and more critical fluids. The proper evaluation of such fluids becomes a critical element, that drives the decision of whether they are economically viable development or not. The wrong fluid assessment can render a falsely thought economical project to be non-economical and vice versa. Gehan Megahed, Event Manager, SPE, has a conversation with Mohamed Hashem, Managing Director of XShell.bv, discussing the importance of a representative sample of reservoir fluid.
