The event ‘Creating novel mathematics opens new approaches to operational issues in oil and gas,’ organised by SPE Aberdeen, took place on 27 November at the Douglas Hotel in Aberdeen.Speaking ahead of the event, Dr. Mathis commented: “The use of innovative mathematical solutions can have a great impact on the oil community, particularly in real-time drilling position and collision avoidance systems, and in finding ‘unconventional’ structures in well data for risk, remnant life and integrity management.”
Dr. Mathis’ talk also highlighted opportunities to implement original mathematical approaches to petrophysical challenges for carbonate reservoirs.
Anthony Onukwu, chairman of SPE Aberdeen, said: “We are delighted to have Dr. Mathis speaking at our event. With a wealth of experience in critical thinking within the oil and gas industry, he will be able to provide valuable information to both SPE members and the wider industry.Innovation is deep rooted within the SPE Aberdeen section and we strive to offer events and initiatives which challenge and encourage new ways of thinking. This is a very unique event, vastly different from the industry norm, and we hope that industry professionals will be interested in coming along to find out more.”
David Liddle, chair of SPE Aberdeen’s Events Programme Committee added: “Dr. Mathis and his team have a wealth of knowledge on the oil and gas industry and have demonstrated successful results with their mathematical approaches to prove their expertise. We look forward to hearing about new and innovative ways to approach problems affecting the industry in areas such as integrity management and drilling.”
