Like numerous other geologic formations, the allure of the Wilcox has waxed and waned owing to fluctuating commodity prices, among other issues. As hydrocarbon prices recovered and technology applications like hydraulic fracturing became commonplace, the Wilcox beckoned anew, attracting principally the mom-and-pop shops and the small to mid-size independents.

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
4-5 February 2015

The goal of the workshop is to improve understanding of carbonate play types around the world, and to optimize efforts by using analogues for poorly understood discoveries, and challenging reservoirs where characterization may be complex. Studies will include microbialites in Brazil, carbonate-dominated unconventionals, and diagenetically altered reservoirs, along with other case studies and research.
