Vertical and lateral facies distribution of the Boquillas Formation (outcrop analog of the Eagle Ford, west Texas) is controlled by sediment productivity under the influence of bottom currents below storm-wave base.  Grainstone bodies in the middle member of the Boquillas are sedimentary.

Quantitative seismic geomorphology techniques are applied to the middle Frio, south Texas, to quantify the morphometric parameters necessary for predictive geologic models of fluvial reservoirs.  This study seeks to quantify the geometric variability of the middle Frio channel belts.

This study uses core and outcrop data to define the Eagle Ford lithofacies in the Austin, Texas area. Facies variability is a significant aspect of the Eagle Ford system and has implications for source rock quality, seal capacity, reservoir characterization, and hydraulic fracture potential.

A positive aspect to price downturns is that they provide the gift of time to develop new, more efficient technologies to enhance anticipated upswings. To this end, improvements in the realm of already existing technologies, such as enhanced oil recovery applications, are underway given the anticipation for higher demand and prices in the future.

This course is intended for engineers who need a better understanding of the geology and geological concepts used in exploration and production decisions, including petroleum engineers, drilling and completion engineers and others who may need a basic petroleum geology refresher. It will also be valuable for GeoTechs, Landmen, Bankers, Office staff and others who work with geologists and need a basic knowledge of geology and geologic terminology and processes.

Short Course

Houston Texas United States 23 August, 2016 25 August, 2016 13607
 
Houston, Texas, United States
23-25 August 2016

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.

This course assumes no logging knowledge and seeks to establish an understanding of basic petrophysical measurements and interpretation techniques which can be applied to routine tasks, and upon which more complex and advanced information and interpretive techniques can be built. It strives to provide a strong and coherent foundation for the understanding of other, specialized interpretation techniques involving well log data.
