Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and other energy professionals who want to learn about the best way to integrate all available information to optimize exploration and production in the Marcellus shale.
Objectives and Content
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to discuss data integration processes.
This presentation discusses one operator’s approach to fully integrate data captured in the Marcellus Shale in order to optimize horizontal well performance. Based upon insight from the study, the operator wanted to make more informed asset management decisions, improve economics, and look for future investment opportunities. A comprehensive study was performed incorporating the data to optimize the design of a horizontal well in the Marcellus Shale. This resulted in an optimized completion strategy for the next horizontal wells, expected to make 80% more production and while reducing the overall completion cost.
Structure of the E-Symposium
Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
