SPE Production & Operations
Covers production operations, artificial lift, downhole equipment, formation damage control, multiphase flow, workovers, stimulation, facility design and operations, water treatment, project management, construction methods and equipment, and related PFC systems and emerging technologies. In addition, subsurface renewable energy and carbon dioxide transport, injection, and storage are included.
SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering
Covers the application of a wide range of topics, including reservoir characterization, geology and geophysics, core analysis, well logging, well testing, reservoir management, enhanced oil recovery, fluid mechanics, performance prediction, reservoir simulation, digital energy, uncertainty/risk assessment, resource and reserve evaluation, portfolio/asset management, project valuation, and petroleum economics.
Covers novel theories and emerging concepts (not including review articles or multi-part articles) spanning all aspects of engineering for oil and gas exploration and production, including drilling and completions, geomechanics, production and facilities, oilfield chemistry, CO2 sequestration and injection, reservoir evaluation and engineering, numerical simulation, data analytics, economics and externalities including health, safety, environment, and sustainability.
SPE Journal: 2021 SPE Reservoir Simulation Conference Special Issue
This special issue in SPE Journal presents selected and peer-reviewed versions of technical papers presented at the 2021 SPE Reservoir Simulation Conference, which is the 26th meeting in the conference series.
The papers represent a cross section of contemporary research and cover a wide range of topics, from research on basic discretization schemes, solution strategies, and optimization methods, to uncertainty quantification, fractured unconventionals, machine-learning methods, and implementations on last generation multicore architectures. An overview paper will also be included, which will celebrate the 25 previous conferences by reflecting on the past 60 years of reservoir simulation.
The issue will be built live as papers are accepted for publication in SPE Journal and compiled on onepetro.org.
“As a mostly retired member of SPE, I depend on the SPE Production and Operations and SPE Journal for information on new technologies in the stimulation and flow assurance technologies. Frequently, I copy papers for my personal library and cite them in publications I write.”
