SPG Mumbai organised a technical session titled “Imaging and Reservoir Technology Update”on 11th October 2019 at Auditorium, NBP Green Heights, Mumbai.The session is a part of continuous and relentless efforts by SPG to share ideas and experiences to the geo-scientific community and to express & exchange views & opinions on various exploration problems in Mumbai offshore areas. The session was chaired by SPG Mumbai Chapter President Shri K V Krishnan. APG Mumbai Chapter Vice President Shri K. Vasudevan, SPG Mumbai Chapter Office bearers, Geoscientists from different G&G Companies and Students from Colleges were also present.
SPG Mumbai Chapter, President, Shri K V Krishnan emphasised the need of goodseismic imaging in exploration. He also made a point that with the advent of new technology and algorithm advancement, we should focus on robust processing sequence to bring out the difficult Mesozoic gas of Kutch Offshore.
SPG Mumbai Chapter,Secretary, Shri Anupam Sharma briefed on the 13th Biennial International Conference & Exposition scheduled to be held at Lulu Bolgatty International Convention Centre (LBICC), Kochi, Kerala, India from 23rd to 25th February 2020.
APG Mumbai Chapter Vice President Shri K. Vasudevan elaborated the exploration challenges in Western Offshore. He also said that successes in Mesozoic sandstone and Fractured /Weathered Dolerite (Intrusive) of Kutch Offshore need to be studied in detailed. The impact of processing,better imaging and reservoir technology advancement will certainly help in better understanding of these type of reservoirs.
