International Conference on Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering (ICPPE) January 14 - 16, 2018
2018 5th International Conference on Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering (ICPPE) was held in Bali, Indonesia during January 14 - 16 , 2018.
It was organized by CBEES, the leading association of scientists and engineers in Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering.
The main issues were addressed as well as the future strategies were discussed for the global energy industry. It came out to be one of the most promising international conference where petroleum and petrochemical engineering (eg. oil and gas engineering) professionals as well as decision makers came together to discuss and debate on various aspects of the challenges, risks and investment opportunities throughout the complete integrated energy and utilities supply chain.
The field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas, is Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering. The upstream sector of the oil and gas industry, includes the Exploration and Production part. The oil and gas industry's two main subsurface disciplines, which focus on maximizing economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs are Exploration, by earth scientists, and Petroleum Engineering. The provision of a static description of the hydrocarbon reservoir rock is the main focus of the Petroleum Geology and Geophysics. The estimation of the recoverable volume of this resource using a detailed understanding of the physical behavior of oil, water and gas within porous rock at very high pressure is the main focus of the Petroleum Engineering.
The way in which a reservoir is developed and depleted is determined by the combined efforts of geologists and petroleum engineers throughout the life of a hydrocarbon accumulation, and usually they have the highest impact on field economics.
Petroleum engineering requires a good knowledge of many other related disciplines, such as geophysics, petroleum geology, formation evaluation (well logging), drilling, economics, reservoir simulation, reservoir engineering, well engineering, artificial lift systems, completions and oil and gas facilities engineering.
This conference provided opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.
Accepted and registered ICPPE 2018 papers will be published in International Journal of Chemical Engineering and Applications (IJCEA ISSN: 2010-0221), and will be included in Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS), Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, CABI, DOAJ, Electronic Journals Library, Google Scholar, Engineering & Technology Digital Library, ProQuest, and Crossref.
