Previous edition

15 - 16 June 2017, 1st edition


PSM had become a "commodity" of hydrocarbon exploration. Although PSM principles were widely accepted and applied, many challenges remained. Increasingly complex basins were explored and subjected to numerical modeling. Henceforth, multiple interacting physical processes, advanced specific mathematical computational methods, and new integrated workflows taking uncertainties into account were a must. In practice, various and complementary fields of expertise came together to provide the basin modeling engineers with more effective and robust approaches, improved modeling workflow efficiency, and prediction capability.

This workshop series aimed to promote discussion and share experience in this field by gathering experts from international oil companies and bringing together the highest level of skills from a range of disciplines.

The first meeting focused on structurally complex basins for which modeling methodology and capabilities were still immature.
