It is perhaps the most ironic move in the industry in years. On Nov. 4, citizens in Denton – a city on the edge of the Barnett Shale in north Texas with a population of 123,000 – voted to ban hydraulic fracturing.

Pumps & Pipes brings together the newest technologies from the oil and gas, medical and aerospace professions in Houston to talk about something they all have in common: Problems. More specifically, members talk about problems because someone else in the room – from a completely different discipline and expertise – may already have found an effective solution.

YPs are in an excellent position to perform community service. For the most part, our backs and knees are still in good shape – but more importantly, since YPs are making the transition from school to the work force, they make excellent liaisons between young/future geologists and the professional geoscience community.

Discover the basic fundamentals of structural geology, the response of natural materials to deformation, and what changes occur due to the application of stress and or strain energy. Practical Geomechanics will be covering the many aspects of exploration, assessment and production phases of petroleum reservoir development.

Looking at a formation as a source rock, then turning around and considering it a viable reservoir requires you to be able to shift your thinking and to analyze a great deal of data in a new way. If you don’t, you risk not understanding the nature of “sweet spots” and how to accurately complete or use reservoir characterization studies.

Much of today’s resource play drilling activity focuses on evaluating properties and holding acreage. As resource plays mature, we will want to identify bypassed pay and evaluate the benefits of restimulation. Even with access to such modern data, geology, and hence seismic data and seismic attributes are only one of the components necessary to predict EUR.

Connectivity in deepwater deposited reservoirs is often times something you don’t know for certainty until you have a well down and flowing. This course is for engineers, geologists and geophysicists who are responsible for economically positive exploration and development of deep-marine reservoirs. It is particularly appropriate for geologist-engineer teams who are responsible for building reservoir development models in these complex systems.

All shale plays are different, and all shale plays shed light on other shale plays. Join experts to discuss world shale plays and share the “lessons learned” in dealing with a wide variety of lithologies, reservoir conditions, and degrees of heterogeneity.
