TECHNICAL PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
This multi-society, multi-discipline, multi-industry event will focus on the role of geomechanics in energy efficiency and sustainability. The symposium will kick off with a legacy training program, “Rock with Fellows,” taught by three key speakers: Mark Zoback (Stanford University), Herbert Einstein (MIT), and John McLennan (University of Utah). It will play host to over 180 presentations in 15 technical sessions and 9 poster sessions. IGS expects more than 200 technical attendees from more than 35 countries spanning six continents. This symposium is a global geomechanics summit for more than 70 of the world’s leading NOCs, IOCs, service companies, and universities. Focusing on the role of geomechanics in energy efficiency and sustainability, the technical program will cover a wide range of geomechanics topics, from rock, in-situ stress, natural fractures, faults, drilling, completion, stimulation, production, and reservoir engineering, and showcase geomechanics applications in CO2 sequestration, hydrogen storage, and new energies.

- Field Trip on 6 November to Jabal Hafit (kindly note that there are limited seats available)
The objective is to bridge the gap between outcrop analogues and the geomechanics models, for example, impact of natural fractures on wellbore stability, understanding how hydraulic fractures propagation,…etc

- Core Visit on 6 November
(kindly note that there are limited seats available)
Share your opinion on conventional and unconventional cores from the Middle East. See, how cores are like fingerprints, it can be carbonates, but not like the carbonates you experienced elsewhere.
