Keynote Speaker

EAGE is delighted to announce that Mr. Abdulla Al Naim has confirmed as Keynote Speaker for the Tight Gas Reservoirs Workshop. Mr. Al Naim is the Vice-President of Exploration at Saudi Aramco.




As the energy industry in the Middle East is facing an increasing demand for natural gas, production from tight gas reservoirs will help meet this demand. The Middle East is believed to contain large amounts of unconventional gas of which tight gas has the potential to be a significant contributor.

This workshop will be the first multi-disciplined workshop in the Middle East dedicated to tight gas reservoirs. It aims to assemble industry international practitioners in tight gas to share their knowledge and expertise to unlock this emerging resource type in the Middle East. The focus will be on gas accumulations in tight sandstone and carbonate reservoirs.

The objective of the workshop is to increase understanding of the challenges and required competencies to integrate technology in exploring, developing and producing this important resource type. The workshop will provide access to and interaction with world class experts from multiple disciplines (geology, geophysics and engineering). A wide range of Middle East examples and solutions will be presented including case studies, analogs and best practices. It will provide an excellent venue to contribute, learn and network.

The workshop will have limited attendance, which will provide for an informal interchange of technical information and ideas. All participants are expected to participate actively in the discussions. Substantial time will be allocated to discussion.
