Heriot-Watt University was represented at this two-day event by the Institute of Petroleum Engineering's Gas Condensate Recovery (GCR) research team.  The team had a stand which was visited by a number of delegates, including Heriot-Watt alumni. The team also presented three papers.

Professor Mahmoud Jamiolahmady was particularly delighted to meet Colin Oswald, DEVEX 2014 Academic Liaison, who attended all of the team presentations. Colin is Head of Research Partnerships Total, one of the research sponsors.

DEVEX 2014

DEVEX European Production and Development Conference is designed for geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, petroleum engineers, production technologists, well engineers and drilling engineers.

As a key knowledge-sharing event for the oil and gas industry, leaders will pass on their experience and knowledge of projects, innovation and entrepreneurialism in the sector throughout the event.

Now in its eleventh year, DEVEX is a two-day conference and exhibition which takes place annually in Aberdeen. It is run jointly by the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB), the Society for Petroleum Engineers (SPE - Aberdeen Section) and the Aberdeen Formation Evaluation Society (AFES) and is supported by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

Gas condensate recovery research at Heriot-Watt

Flow of gas and gas condensate in conventional and unconventional reservoirs has been studied by the GCR team since 1986. The researchers use state-of-the-art experimental facilities, in-house NeW-COIN simulator and other commercial simulators to deliver cutting-edge applied research and consultancy to industry.

This research project is currently supported by 11 oil and gas industry companies.
