Who Should Attend
Geoscientists interested in learning more about the engineering side of exploring in carbonate reservoirs, such as engineering characterization and development of simulation models for waterfloods, EOR, and CO2 storage. Primary focus will be in the Mississippian Limestone and Arbuckle Plays.
Participants in this course will learn how engineering aspects play an important role in exploration and development of Mid-Continent Carbonate Reservoir Developments, specifically focusing on the Mississippian and Arbuckle formations. They will obtain knowledge of the history of exploration in these areas, as well as details on current operations and economics.
This 1-day course will show the various engineering aspects that must be considered when exploring for carbonated in the Mid-Continent U.S., primarily in the Mississippian and Arbuckle Formations. The instructor will give the historical background of each area, and tie it to the current operations and techniques being used, as well as the economic factors involved. He will cover such topics as reservoir characterization, geomechanics, data analysis and surface facilities and operations. There will also be a discussion of CO2 EOR and storage/disposal considerations. Case studies and hands-on exercises will be used to reinforce the concepts discussed.
NOTE: Please bring your laptop computer to this course as the notes will be available electronically and will be easier to follow along and work some of the exercises on your computer.
