The 28th Formation Evaluation Symposium of Japan will be held as a “In-Person with Streaming” event on both 13th & 14th Sep 2023. All persons involved in oil, gas, new energy, geo-engineering industry, and scientific drillings are invited to showcase your case studies, new technologies and innovations.
There will be no poster session, so abstract submission is for consideration an oral presentation only. The presentation will be made by either In-Person or Remote format. Each presentation would be total of 25 minutes, including 15 minutes oral presentation, 10 minutes live Q&A.
General Themes: The symposium committees are soliciting papers in the following:
 Reservoir Characterization of Conventional Reservoirs
 Reservoir Characterization of Unconventional Reservoirs
 Automated Methods of Formation Evaluation
 Specialized Measurement Techniques and Interpretation Methods
 Core and Well-Log Integration
 Case Studies
Special Themes: We set “CCS/CCUS” as special session theme in this symposium, and recent innovation and experience will be shared with the participants in JFES symposium. The total 8 invited talks will be arranged by the symposium committee inviting the industry leaders from global universities, research institutes and energy companies. In this special session, JFES will provide petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists, and engineers with an opportunity to share their expertise and case studies for geothermal energy development. We are soliciting papers in the following contents, related to CCS/CCUS:
 Formation Evaluation/Reservoir Characterization of the depleted oil and gas reservoir
 Formation Evaluation/Reservoir Characterization of the aquifer reservoir
 Caprock Integrity Analysis technology and evaluation
 Well Integrity Analysis technology and evaluation
 Reservoir Monitoring Technology
 Geological/Geomechanical Modeling and Dynamic Simulation
SPWLA Japan Board of Directors also encourage students to participate and present. Best Student Awards will be presented to the outstanding presentation. The student awarded would be nominated for SPWLA student paper contest in the international SPWLA 2024 symposium.

• US Copyright law requires a copyright transfer be obtained from authors of papers published in SPWLA publications. Copyright form is signed and returned by the author at the time of submission of Extended Abstract, which subsequently takes a part of the symposium proceeding and is published on One Petro.


• Apr 22nd 2023; A notification of acceptance/rejection of the abstract will be sent to you via email no later than this date.
