    SPE Great Yarmouth Section.

  • Great Yarmouth SPE Section has moved to Norwich!

    Exciting news has arrived for the Great Yarmouth SPE Section - the decision to relocate our operating base from Great Yarmouth to Norwich is set in motion. This strategic move holds immense significance for our section, with the recent technical talk by Rawdon Seager serving as a reminder of the profound impact such shifts can have on our members.
    The shift to Norwich comes as a response to the evolving landscape of the oil and gas industry in our region. As the industry's center of gravity shifts towards Norwich, it only makes sense for our SPE Section to follow suit. By making Norwich our new home, we aim to provide our members with enhanced access to technical talks, social events, and knowledge-sharing opportunities. This transition aligns with our commitment to keeping our members connected and informed in an ever-evolving industry.
    The recent Distinguished Lecture delivered by Rawdon Seager underscored the importance of this move. Seager's expertise, honed over five decades, enlightened professionals from operators and service companies on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS). The enthusiastic response to this lecture is a testament to the kind of invaluable knowledge-sharing opportunities that await us in Norwich.
    As we embark on this new chapter, we extend a gentle invitation to our local oil and gas companies in the region. Your contributions in the form of delivering and/ or attending technical talks can further enrich our collective knowledge and benefit the entire industry. Together, we can continue to grow and thrive in this dynamic field, making the Great Yarmouth SPE Section a hub of excellence in Norwich and beyond.

  • Distinguished Lecture - Carbon Capture and Storage and the CO2 Storage Resources Management System

    The DL is expected to be delivered on the 29th of September 2023. 

    More information will be provided. 

    Carbon Capture and Storage and the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS)

    Rawdon Seager

    Gaffney, Cline & Associates


    After the lecture, members will understand the importance of carbon capture and storage in the transition to a lower carbon future and know how to evaluate quantities consistently using the SRMS.

    As part of the international effort to combat global warming, significant attention is being given to ways to sequester (store for the long-term) carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect. It is therefore critical that there is a universal means to record the storable quantities by recognizing the maturity of the projects to be implemented and the confidence that can be placed in the estimated volumes to be sequestered.

    This talk will look at some of the ways in which carbon dioxide can be stored and provide a review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) framework prepared by the Society of Petroleum Engineers to classify and categorize the storable quantities.

    The talk will cover:

    • An overview of carbon capture, utilization and storage, including the role of greenhouse gasses in global warming
    • Discussion of typical modes of storage of carbon dioxide in saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas fields
    •  Review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS), including principles and key definitions
    •  Discussion of economics and evaluation methods
    • A hypothetical example


    Rawdon Seager is a reservoir engineer with over 50 years’ experience in the international oil and gas arena with Shell, Huffco and, since 1985, Gaffney, Cline & Associates, where he is Chief Reservoir Engineer and Global Director of Quality Assurance. He is currently ivolved in CCS studies and application of the SRMS.

    He has a BSc in Physics from Bristol University and an MSc in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College, London. Rawdon is past Chairman of the SPE Oil and Gas Reserves Committee and past member of the Board and current Chair of the Reserves Definitions Committee of the SPEE.

  • January 2023 2nd Meeting: SPE Distinguished Lecturer Dr. Rod Batycky

    We have another talk this month! Dr. Rod Batycky, an SPE DL and a cofounder of Streamsim Technologies, Inc, will speak about Streamline Reservoir Surveillance Models to Improve Mature Floods by Low-Cost Actions The talk is at 3:30 PM on Friday, Jan 27 in Room 104 (1st floor) in the Green Earth Sciences Building at Stanford University. Dr. Batycky's bio and talk abstract are listed below. 


    Please RSVP by Jan 25, 2022, to Professor Roland Horne: 

    Speaker bio  

    Dr. Rod Batycky is a cofounder of Streamsim Technologies, Inc., and an expert in reservoir flow simulation with more than 25 years of industry experience.
     He is involved in the development of new simulation technologies, teaches reservoir simulation courses, and he has consulted on the reservoir modeling of water, polymer, CO2 and WAG floods world-wide. Prior to Streamsim, he was a reservoir engineer at Shell Canada.  He has authored several publications in SPE, was awarded SPE’s Cedrick K. Ferguson Medal and the SPE Canada Region Reservoir Description and Dynamics Award.  He is a past associate editor for SPEJCPT, a current associate editor for SPEREE, and an SPE Distinguished Lecturer. He holds a BSc from the U. of Calgary, and MSc and PhD degrees in petroleum engineering from Stanford University.




    In today's economic environment, operators must work to extend the lives of mature fields using low-cost measures. However, identifying reservoir opportunities and forecasting scenarios prior to implementation typically relies on reservoir flow simulation, yet most operators do not have time to build or calibrate such models. Instead, streamline-based surveillance (SLSV) modelling - which has matured greatly over the past few years - offers a practical solution. SLSV models are easier to build and significantly faster to compute than simulation models, and require minimal or no calibration. SLSL models are driven directly by historical production and injection data, can incorporate large scale geological features, and generate unique well-pair metrics for low-cost improvements. For example, while it is easy to identify high water cut/water rate producers, it is challenging to identify the offending offset injectors. Since streamlines naturally define well-pairs, engineers can identify offset injectors attached to producers to promote sweep and reduce fluid cycling. Recent technology enhancements allow SLSV models to additionally generate remaining oil in place maps by applying material balance to dynamic well-pairs as well as rapid forecasts of low-cost management scenarios such as new rate targets, well shut-ins, well reactivations, and/or producer-injector conversions.

    Title: Success and Failure Factors for Cyclic Gas Injection in Unconventional Reservoirs
    When: Thursday, January 19th, 2023 (11AM Pacific)
    Where: Online via Zoom
    Meeting Registration Link: Zoom Meeting - SPEGGS January 2023 DL Meeting Link


    Field application of cyclic gas injection (CGI) has proven to increase rates and recovery factors in Eagle Ford. However, depsite years of experience in conventional reservoirs, a comprehensive understanding of the factors that yield to a successful CGI project in unconventional play is yet to be developed. Because a hydraulically created fracture system controls the flow while the fluid is stored in ultra-tight, nanoporous matrix, integrated understanding of the physics of the unconventional reservoir, the fluid system, exchange between matrix and fracture media, and the dynamic nature of the hydraulic fracture properties is essential for the successful design and implementation of CGI in unconventionals. This presentation focuses on the unconventional aspects of CGI and demonstrates utilization of modeling solutions to understand the reservoir, design a successful gas injection project, and quantify its success. The key take aways of the presentation are the success factors of CGI projects, importance of containment of gas and contact of gas with oil, and the impact of timing on the economic viability of implementation.
