ECF2018 3rd Oil and Gas Tech Innovation Award Report
ECF2018 3rd Oil and Gas Tech Innovation Award Ceremony took place during the evening of October 17th, 2018 at Jianguo Hotel, Shanghai, China. Initiated by Shanghai United Institute for Unconventional Resources and the Coordinating Committee for Geoscience Programmes in East and Southeast Asia (CCOP). This award aims to recognize and reward innovative technologies and products that has the potential to make significant contributions towards the oil and gas industry.
In order to ensure the safety of energy supply, China continues to increase the exploration and development of domestic shale gas. In recent years, a significant increase in technical recoverable reserves has been seen in China. As the great achievement been made, it is critical for the industry to convert these technology recoverable reserves into economically recoverable reserves.
The 2nd Workshop of IGDP Phase II Project, Guangzhou, China
As part of the 3rd Workshop & Training Courses on Capacity Building on Marine Geoscience and Geohazards Reduction & Prevention for ASEAN Member States, the 2nd Workshop of IGDP Project Phase II (IGDP-II2) was held in Guangzhou, China on 17-19 July 2018. This was funded by China Geological Survey, and hosted by Guangzhou Marine Geological Survey. There were 26 participants from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and from CCOPTS.
The IGDP-II2 started with the opening remarks by Dr Adichat Surinkum, CCOPTS Director and welcoming address by Dr Zhang Minghua, the IGDP Project Leader.
Country report on geoscience database development, geoscience data processing technology, application & case study of RGIS-IGDP software, and national geophysical compilation were presented.
KIGAM Regular Training Course on Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources 2018
During a series of regular training courses provided by the KIGAM/IS-Geo in collaboration with the CCOP for member countries, the KIGAM/ISGeo training course on Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources was conducted from 22 January – 10 February 2018 in the International School for Geoscience Resources (IS-Geo) of KIGAM, Daejeon, Korea, with 19 participants, 18 of which are from 8 CCOP Member Countries.
Aiming to foster professionals from all over the world in the field of unconventional energy related research as well as to enhance the capabilities of the cooperating countries/organizations with Korea/KIGAM and to meet the high interest regarding “Unconventional Oil and Gas”, this 3-week training course provided participants an interdisciplinary approach to explore the academic knowledge and practical skills on the application of suitability analysis in the field of unconventional oil and gas. The contents of this course comprised a general overview on Oil Sand, CBM&Shale gas and Gas Hydrate. Seventeen Korean/foreign instructors were involved in the course. Four lecturers from USGS came to KIGAM to take charge of gas hydrate module in this time.
CCOP-DMR Special Talk on World Bank Funded Mineral Exploration Project in Lao PDR
The Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) of Thailand and CCOPTS co-hosted the special talk on 9 February at the DMR Conference Room. The presentation on “WORLD BANK-FUNDED PILOT GEOLOGICAL MAPPING PROJECT IN NORTHERN LAOS WITH THE AID OF HIGH RESOLUTION AIRBORNE GEOPHYSICS: METHODOLOGY AND INITIAL FINDINGS, was made by Mr. Peter Fiedfield, currently the leader of this project. He had a lot of experiences working with the British Geological Survey and had some field works with DMR on Southeast Asia Granitic Study during 1990s. The special talk was attended by 60 geoscientists from DMR and Department of Primary Industry and Mines (DPIM).
Third International Congress on Geology, Resources and Geohazards of Myanmar (GEOMYANMAR 2018)
Myanmar Geosciences Society organized the Third International Congress on Geology, Resources, Geo-hazards of Myanmar and Surrounding regions, GEOMYANMAR2018, during 31 January to 2 February, 2018 in Yangon, Myanmar. The first one was organized in 2012. GEOMYANMAR 2018 is intended to expand participation from geoscience communities from Southeast Asia and worldwide to open a new chapter of collaboration among international geological institutions. More than 400 geoscientists from more than 12 countries attended this conference. CCOPTS Director was invited to give a presentation on “Roles of CCOP on Promoting the Geoscience Cooperation in Southeast Asia.
