Just one year ago drilling in the off-limits eastern Gulf of Mexico appeared to be on the cusp of getting the green light from the U.S. government as calls for “drill, baby, drill” emanated from politicians as well as the ordinary Joe.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave his State of the State address Feb. 8, with the central theme being “Reform and the Streamlining of State Government.” As with many states, Texas is facing red ink. The governor wants to balance the budget, and in order to do so one of his initiatives is to combine or suspend 40 boards.

Depending on the geological history and structural framework, the spatial distribution of natural fractures may be inhomogeneous and erratic. Statistical approaches involving the extrapolation of limited direct observations often fail to encapsulate the variability within these sub-surface fracture systems. Understanding of the relationship between the shape or strain history of a surface and observed fractures provides predictive strength in areas with limited direct observations.

This two day seminar integrates the principles of Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and emerging production enhancement technologies with reservoir characterization, primarily focused on the McMurray Formation. Developing a 3-dimensional view of these oil sands deposits, understanding the impact of reservoir heterogeneity on steam chamber growth and identifying production risk are important considerations for developing optimal recovery strategies. Hands-on examination of representative oil sands cores provides critical observations for each reservoir type. Post-steam core provides direct knowledge of production mechanisms and steam chamber growth and conformance.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn all the aspects related to the understanding and modeling of fractured reservoirs. Attendees will take geologic concepts and use them in reservoir modeling through hands-on sessions devoted to the examination of outcrop, core and log data. They will use that information and a software to create 3D fractured reservoir models. Using actual Teapot Dome (Wyoming, USA) field data from the Tensleep and Niobrara Shale formations and a hands-on approach, the workshop allows the geoscientist to identify fractures and to construct predictive 3D fracture models that can be used to identify productive zones, plan wells and to create fracture porosity and permeability models for reservoir simulation.
