SPE International Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference (12-14 September, 2023)

In September 2023 Fenix Consulting Delft will be present at the SPE International Hydraulic Fracturing Conference in Muscat, Oman, supporting the event by having Josef Shaoul as a committee member. Come and talk to us in Muscat if you wish to discuss efficient field development, CCS or an other topic where we could be of value.

UPDATE: Fenix will be presenting 3 new papers; SPE215661, SPE215653, SPE215705 and one e-Poster; SPE215643 at the conference plus Josef Shaoul has been selected to be the co-chair of the "Horizontal and Multistage Well Technologies" session. The papers will cover topics such as; thermal fracturing in CCS, tackling breakdown and proppant placement in HTHP volcanic reservoirs, increasing recovery and reserves in multi-zone vertical wells, and hydraulic fracture performance in very complex stress environments.

CCS Workshop (January, 2023)

Over the past two decades Fenix has been developing unique expertise in long term injection optimization for EOR, waste injection, geothermal and gas storage. In recent years Fenix applied that expertise to CCS, resulting in subsurface modeling for geomechanical risks, enabling injection optimization while ensuring reservoir integrity, for several of the more mature CCS development projects in the world.

In 2023 Fenix will start offering two-day workshops to interested parties to understand the essentials of CCS subsurface geomechanical modeling for the optimization of project storage volumes, economics and safety.

In the workshop you will learn about the geomechanical subsurface issues and risks associated with CCS in aquifers and depleted gas reservoirs. Understanding this allows managing injectivity, seismicity, and containment. The workshop will cover the time lines involved, the data requirements, the remaining uncertainties and the regulatory requirements for CCS projects in general, as well as discussing case histories, e.g. the Porthos project in the Netherlands.
