A joint AAPG–Society of Petroleum Engineers–Society of
Exploration Geophysicists Hedberg Research Conference was
held in Saint-Cyr sur Mer, France, on July 8 to 13, 2012, to
review current research and explore future research directions
related to improved production from carbonate reservoirs.
Eighty-seven scientists from academia and industry (split roughly
equally) attended for five days. A primary objective for the
conference was to explore novel connections among different
disciplines (primarily within geoscience and reservoir engineering)
as a way to define new research opportunities. Research
areas represented included carbonate sedimentology and stratigraphy,
structural geology, geomechanics, hydrology, reactive
transportmodeling, seismic imaging (including four-dimensional
seismic, tomography, and seismic forward modeling), geologic
modeling and forward modeling of geologic processes, petrophysics,
statistical methods, numerical methods for simulation,
reservoir engineering, pore-scale processes, in-situ flow experiments
(e.g., x-ray computed tomography), visualization, and
methods for data interaction.
