Technical Programme

The technical programme of the Fault and Top Seals 2019 conference consists of oral and poster presentations on a broad selection of topics. Extended Abstracts (4 full pages) for this conference should be submitted by 1 May, 2019. 

The committee invites papers on a wide range of subjects:

  • Prediction of seal behaviour on production and geological time-scales
  • Unconventional seals (e.g., seals to unconventional reservoirs, seals in carbonates, hydrodynamic seals)
  • Geomechanical modelling of seal behaviour on a pore to basin scale
  • The role of sub-seismic scale faults and fault zone architecture on fluid flow and simulation models
  • Laboratory and outcrop investigations of fault rocks and fault rock forming processes
  • Identification of seals using geophysical and petrophysical methods
  • Learnings on fault seal behaviour from history matching studies
  • Integrated analysis of charge, trapping and leakage
  • Case studies of fault and top seal leakage and sealing
  • Lessons from other disciplines (nuclear waste disposal, gas/CO2 storage, hydrogeology)
  • Machine learning and data science approaches to seal analysis
  • Understanding and handling uncertainty in our seal risking and modelling methods
