Panel Discussion
“Innovations and Materials as Technology Enablers for Improving Cost & Performance Efficiencies in Energy”
Date: Tuesday, February 28, 11:20 a.m.
Location: San Diego Convention Center, Room 14A
Moderator: Indranil Roy, Schlumberger
Panelists: Ram Shenoy, RBR group and U.S. Department of Energy; Kripa Varanasi, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Hani Elshahawi, Shell; Partha Ganguly, Baker Hughes

With the accelerating development of high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) reservoirs (pressure > 20kpsi, temperature > 350 degF), the oil and gas industry faces not only new materials-related challenges, but also questions regarding reservoir characteristics, resulting in the increased use of costly and more exotic materials. Nanostructured and advanced materials potentially offer new possibilities in drilling, exploration and production. In this symposium, both academia and industry are invited to discuss and review the topic of extreme environment as an input to the design of novel materials for oil and gas applications.

Organizers: Indranil Roy, Schlumberger; Chengjia Shang, University of Science and Technology Beijing
