First Round Abstract Submission: October 10, 2017

Oliver C. Mullins - Keynote

Science Advisor in Schlumberger, USA
Title: Reservoir Fluid Geodynamics; the Missing Link in Reservoir Evaluation

Biography: Dr. Oliver C. Mullins is a Science Advisor in Schlumberger. He is the primary originator of Downhole Fluid Analysis (DFA) in well logging. Dr. Mullins also leads an active research group in petroleum science leading to the Yen-Mullins model of asphaltenes and the FHZ EoS. His current interests include utilizing DFA technology and new asphaltene science to perform novel reservoir evaluation. This work has clarified the reservoir fluid geodynamic processes that give rise to various fluid gradients and tar deposition. He has won several awards including the SPWLA Gold Medal for Technical Achievement and has been Distinguished Lecturer 6 times for SPWLA and SPE. He authored the award-winning book The Physics of Reservoir Fluids; Discovery through Downhole Fluid Analysis, coedited 3 books and coauthored 13 chapters on asphaltenes and related topics. He has coauthored 265 publications, ~½ on petroleum science, ~½ on applications, and has coinvented 115 allowed US patents. He has accumulated 13,500 citations on Google Scholar to his work. He is Fellow of two professional societies and is Adjunct Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University.

About Conference

United Scientific Group, USA is organizing the 2nd International Conference on Gas, Oil and Petroleum Engineering (GOPE-2018) during February 26-28, 2018 in Houston, USA.

This Conference encourages a large network of researchers and other partners to present innovative technologies and engineering developments whose goal is to make the costs effective energy generation from traditional sources of energy. Through collaborations and through partnerships, working with national laboratories and innovative start-ups, it is within our grasp today to produce energy from fossil fuels, and to build cornerstones in the field of science and technology to provide much-needed energy to both the developed and especially the developing world.

Many companies are developing, manufacturing, and installing cutting-edge, high-tech energy systems. Further expansion of energy sources will continue as advanced technologies are developed, and existing technologies achieve lower costs and higher performance as these technologies mature.

We look forward to seeing you in Houston, USA
