This is an ISRM-sponsored Specialised Conference, taking place at the National University of Colombia, in Medellín, from 15 to 16 March 2017. The theme of the Symposium is “Sustainable heavy oil exploitation, innovation and geomechanical contributions”. BitCan sponsored the conference and presented three technical papers, sharing our insights and experience in mini-frac tests, total solution to the caprock integrity, constraining uncertainties in geomechanical simulations on fully-coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical processes, proactive utilization of geomechanical dilation mechanism for enhancing heavy oil production.
BitCan’s CEO (Dr. Yanguang Yuan) was selected as a keynote speaker in the mega conference and a panelist in the round table discussion at the end of the conference.The three technical papers presented are:
- 15-Mar: Quality control (QC) quality assurance (QA) in Geomechanical works for heavy oil production ( Dr. Yanguang Yuan)
- 15-Mar: Application of Geomechanics in heavy oil production-advanced Canadian experience. ( Dr. Yanguang Yuan)
- 16-Mar: Overcome challenges to resolve uncertainty in modeling for caprock integrity assessment. ( Dr. Yanguang Yuan)
