Geoscientist Workforce of the Future: Education and Re-Tooling

The careers and jobs of geoscientists are evolving. In addition to a good understanding of geoscience concepts and processes and plus foundational professional skills, the rapid change in technology, the immense increase in information readily available, and need to integrate different types of datasets requires additional competences in data-related skills. Furthermore, given the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the geosciences, there is also a need for higher-level communication and interpersonal skills compared to past minimally-acceptable levels. What are the data, how to prepare, what to do?

Reservoir Intelligence

Reservoir Intelligence encompasses skills in petrophysics, geology, engineering, and business. Integration of these efforts helps upscales the problem of heterogeneity from pore to well to field performance. The interaction between service company and operator is key in decision making and often reflects the overall economics of the play. In order to promote this interaction, we have invited a group of Operators, Academics, and Service Company representatives to present how they tackle reservoir intelligence problems and then offer a round table on how methods from their talks could help the industry.

The Future Petrophysicist

The increasing interest in the industry for solving reservoir potential and resource qualification problems demands increasing number of Petrophysicist in the workforce. However, formal and dedicated curriculams in petroptrophysics are not only rare, but are also outdated in the present university offerings. In this forum, we bring practicing petrophysicists from various backgrounds to discuss their journey, and how they prepapred themselves for these roles. The speakers also discuss the diverse range of career paths that petrophysics can open, which are above and beyond of just calculating reservoir properties.

Digitization, Data, and Knowledge Management for Exploration and Production

We will share real-life experiences and lessons learned in digital transformations, and the challenges and opportunities for managing data and knowledge. We discuss examples of when digital processes (blockchain, etc.) have resulted in million-dollar savings, and when they have had spectacularly unexpected results.

Deep-Time Digital Earth Project

The vision and mission of DDE is to transform Earth Science by harmonizing global DDE data, and sharing global geoscience knowledge. DDE will construct science infrastructures based on emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, with the aim of serving geoscientists all around the world. The core purpose of these infrastructures will be to construct a machine-readable geoscience knowledge hierarchy for compiling and standardizing big and complex geological data from the Earth record.
