New Directions in Carbonates
27-29 February 2012 | Fort Worth, Texas
New enhanced drilling techniques (geosteering in horizontal wells) combined with new technologies and a better understanding of how to economically produced hydrocarbons in carbonates have revitalized exploration for and development of carbonate reservoirs.
Presentations will discuss different types of porosity, and the processes that both enhance and inhibit reservoir productivity. In addition, permeability issues are also addressed, and the new technologies and techniques that allow a closer and more detailed analysis of both permeability and porosity, with careful attention paid to drilling fluids and completions (including hydraulic fracturing and waterfloods).
Join us to learn and discuss new and revitalized plays, new technologies, and case studies / experiences involving the Mississippian in Oklahoma and Kansas, the Permian Basin, new carbonates in the Texas Panhandle and North Texas, and more. The workshop crosses the disciplines and features presentations involving engineering, geology, and geophysics.
