The NAPE | AAPG Enhancing Mature Fields Life Cycles workshop took place 6 - 7 June 2018 at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Petroleum exploration decreased globally in recent years and oil discoveries fell to a sixty-year low in 2016. Key exploration projects have been suspended or cancelled due to the lingering low oil price business environment. Meanwhile, oil and gas production in mature fields are fast declining. In this critical business climate, oil and gas companies need innovative strategies and technologies to remain competitive and profitable.
The workshop focused on the connection between a strong geological understanding of the fields and the deployment of relevant integrated multi-disciplinary technologies (e.g. acquisition/reprocessing of high-resolution seismic data, surveillance, water flooding, gas injection and other well optimization techniques) that aid the extension of mature fields’ life cycles. Several case studies/examples will be drawn from the Niger Delta and from similar clastic deltaic settings in several basins.
Benefits of Attending:
The workshop also provides the opportunity to learn and discuss the latest knowledge, techniques and technologies applied to mature fields. The workshop will provide a set-up for networking, interacting and sharing expertise with fellow petroleum scientists interested in enhancing production from maturing fields in the Niger Delta and similar deltaic settings.

The programme started at about 11:20am with 38 participants in attendance. The technical session was hosted by Mr. David Anomneze, NAPE YP Lead who introduced our guest speaker, Dr. Muyiwa Olawoki, Managing Consultant at Geospectra Nigeria Limited. Dr Muyiwa started by introducing himself and giving an insight on his over 30 years blossom professional career in the oil and gas industry before starting his own company. The guest speaker started by encouraging all in attendance to have passion for everything we do and thinking of geology like a personal hobby for the love of it not a profession for its monetary rewards which can guarantee growth. Dr. Muyiwa Olawoki treated the topic: “Seismic stratigraphy, A critical tool for future exploration efforts” by sharing the new dynamism in stratigraphy sequence mapping which has gradually moved from the earlier used lithostratigraphy section mapping to seismic stratigraphy interpretation in oil and gas prospecting in Nigeria. Types of depositional environments, coastal aggradation sediment distribution, crustal movement and eustatic sea level regimes which are keynote points on formation processes were broadly explained to the understanding of all. The local geology of the Niger Delta Basin was explained at length to make all participants more informed on our very own background knowledge. The relationship between strata and boundaries of depositional sequences which features the upper boundaries (erosional truncation, top-lap, concordance), lower boundaries (on-lap, down-lap) and seismic facies characteristics were extensively explained with highpoints such as bi-directional down-lap, basin floor fan, slope turbulent fan, reflection terminations, seismic reflection configurations and other sequence stratigraphy terminologies were also discussed. Dr. Muyiwa Olawoki taught all in attendance how to use stratigraphy to define reservoir with emphasises on first allowing the seismic data reveal itself by simply identifying its natural unique features before mapping. The guest speaker also showed how to use the occurrence of faults and depositional time units to determine the age of faults and reconstruct the life history of any seismic section given. A practical paper session followed afterwards as all participants were divided into five study groups to brainstorm and share knowledge on over five different seismic sections from indigenous fields in onshore and off-shore Nigeria given by the guest speaker highlighting all deliberated points earlier discussed. There were active technical contributions from professional guests, Dr. Ifeanyi Obi, SEG Sub-Saharan African Co-ordinator and Mr. Demola Lanisa, AAPG Africa YP Lead as they worked with all groups and gave brilliant ideas on how to map seismic sections by understanding the reservoir story. Dr Muyiwa concluded the class by imbibing knowledge of reservoir risk evaluation approach and encouraging all to strive to learn more details about seismic interpretation and seismic stratigraphy interpretation as it is the future of the country’s oil and gas exploration. David Anomneze, NAPE YP Lead/SEG Sub-Saharan Africa EPIC Committee Representative appreciated the guest speaker Dr. Muyiwa Olawoki for making out time to pass such priceless knowledge to young professionals. Miss Chioma Ogbechie, NAPE YP Fin. Sec. gave the announcements after refreshments were served and David thanked all for coming and concluded the session.

Miss Ifeyinwa Adueyi, “It was an educative and fantastic opportunity to learn and get clarity on a topic that has been confusing but the guest speaker took his time to explain indepth to my understanding. I thank Dr. Muyiwa Olawoki and the NAPE YP Officers, Well done!”
