CCOMM Canada at the 2012 GeoConvention in Calgary

Wednesday 11th of April 2012

CCOMM Canada at the 2012 GeoConvention in Calgary, in collaboration with Schlumberger will be demonstrating the Cyviz visualisation environment using the Petrel application.

Welcome to GeoConvention 2012

In the geosciences we are continually moving forward but just when we get used to the pace a major advancement becomes mainstream.  The idea that a source bed can be a producing reservoir has caused a major advancement in technology but what is next:  nanotechnology for increased recovery, logs that predict pore size distributions, reservoir productivity maps from seismic or all of these and more.   

To predict these trends we are immediately prompted to identify the research challenges, emphasize the much-needed interdisciplinary collaboration, recognize the integration of the sciences and advance our scientific knowledge. A careful glance at each of these issues suggests that they all have futuristic overtones and can be addressed by having a clear vision.  Consequently, we have chosen that as the theme of the 2012 GeoConvention - ‘VISION’.

GeoConvention 2012: Vision will thus be a forum to address the sharing and advancing of knowledge forward, allowing the exchange of ideas that could guide research in different areas of geosciences, and addressing futuristic issues and so that our VISION is articulated to the younger generation of geoscientists.

On behalf of the 2012 organizing committee, which comprises members of the CSEG, CSPG and CWLS, we proudly welcome you to GeoConvention 2012: Vision, which will take place May 14th to 17th at the TELUS Convention Centre, with a Core Conference May 17th and 18th at the ERCB Core Research Centre in Calgary.

We extend a warm welcome to you all and hope you come and participate in the convention, share your VISION and ENJOY!
