The technical reference books we publish for each Well Evaluation Conference (WEC) and Reservoir Optimization Conference (ROC) document results from both the client's and the service company's view.
Articles authored or coauthored by engineers and scientists from both perspectives reflect a candid exchange of information and share knowledge about relevant issues such as updated petroleum geology, technologies, and best practices.
El libro WEC México 2010 es el tercero que se realiza en México y el primero que incluye artículos relacionados con la industria geotérmica. Este libro, que ha sido lanzado únicamente en español, trata aspectos locales relevantes sobre las cinco principales actividades de la industria upstream del petróleo y el gas en la cual Schlumberger participa: descubrir, alcanzar, entender, conectar y producir el yacimiento.
This book documents the third WEC conference of Sonatrach and Schlumberger. The work of some 120 engineers from both companies, it is a qualitative tool for the national and international hydrocarbon industry and for the academic community. The collaboration covers all aspects of the upstream business. Its main focus is the exploration and development of Sonatrach fields, and the descriptions of technologies and their applications track their evolution and use in reservoir characterization, development, production, and HSE.

A Reservoir Optimization Conference marked Schlumberger's 70th year of continuous activity in Indonesia. With contributions from Pertamina, Unocal, Shell, KUFPEC, Gulf, and Woodside, this book documents the history of Indonesia's industry, discusses its future, and gives a geological overview of its petroleum geology. (235 pages)
Comprising 13 case studies, this book noted the 60th anniversary of Schlumberger's first logging job in Italy. Contributors included Agip, British Gas International, Chevron, Edison Gas, Elf, Enterprise Oil, Fina, Lasmo, Phillips, Spi, Texaco, and Triton. (126 pages)
Held in Caracas, this conference was the first organized for Venezuela since 1980. With a theme of "Optimizing Well Production and Reservoir Understanding from Well Data," its goal was to show how technology had solved some of this country's exploration and development problems. Examples from Venezuela focus on integration of services, both in application and organization. (362 pages)
Geoscientists from China National Petroleum Corporation, Schlumberger, and oil companies documented the 1997 Well Evaluation Conference. Emphasis is on description and modeling of reservoirs. Rich with historical photographs of early industry in China.
This beautifully illustrated book, with an introduction by the Egyptian Minister of Petroleum, was published for the 1995 Egypt Well Evaluation Conference. Its first chapter traces the development of the Egypt's petroleum industry. The remainder of the book updates the geology of major producing basins: Gulf of Suez, Western Desert, and the Nile Delta. (88 pages)
Schlumberger and SONATRACH collaborated to produce this synthesis of the second Algerian Well Evaluation Conference, held in 1995. Prepared with the help of Algerian experts in geology and petroleum operations, it is primarily a reference for Algeria's sedimentary basins. (398 pages)
In this book, the World Energy Commission (WEC) examines the exploration for hydrocarbons in Angola from the early 1900s when the first well was drilled. The petroleum geology chapter includes geological maps of Angola and regional geological evolution and basin information. The reservoir geometry section discusses surface seismic methods and interpretation, structural dip and faults, and well testing objectives and methods. A section on formation evaluation offers an in-depth discussion of porosity and lithology, resistivity modeling, permeability, and fracture characterization. The final chapter on completion and production methods highlights cementing and evaluation techniques used in Angola basins, testing hardware, on-site fluid analysis, saturation monitoring, and corrosion monitoring.
