Abstract

This paper summarizes the results of a joint EAGE/AAPG research conference that was convened in Almeria, Spain, in October 1998. The theme of the conference was how to better produce deep-water reservoits based on lessons learned fron the past 25 yr. A repeated message at the conference was that there is more complexity than anticipated in turbidite reserviors, contrary to people's expectations. Such complexity may go unnoticed during initial depletion and be observed only during secondary injection of fluids. Early recognition of shale occurrences and geometries, bed continuity, and stratigraphic variations in net-to-gross ratio's appear to be the main issues related to maximizing well performance.
