October 12-13, 2018 - Workshop on Thermal Conductivity, Chengdu, China

A two-day Workshop on Thermal Conductivity of Rocks was successfully held in Chengdu University of Technology, Chengdu, China, October 12-13, 2018. The workshop featured three lectures and one hand-on session instructed by Professor Yuri Popov (IHFC Chair 2011-2015): 1) New role of thermal petrophysics and geothermics in prospecting, exploration and development of unconventional and traditional hydrocarbon fields; 2) Methodology and results of experimental geothermic investigations of scientific deep and industrial wells (1990-2018); 3) Peculiarities of application of optical scanning techniques in geothermic and petrophysical experiments; and 4) Hands-on exercise and best practice with the Lippmann and Rauen GbR Thermal Conductivity Scanner. Shaopeng Huang (IHFC Chair) was the organizer of the workshop which attracted more than 60 participants.
