Statistical classification methods consisting of the k-nearest neighbor algorithm (k-NN), a probabilistic clustering procedure (PCP), and a novel method which incorporates outcrop-based thickness criteria through the use of well-log-indicator flags are evaluated for their ability to distinguish fluvial architectural elements of the upper Mesaverde Group of the Piceance and Uinta basins as distinct electrofacies classes.

Pervasive deformation band arrays delay water breakthrough and enhance sweep when the contrast of permeability between them and the host rock is at least of three orders of magnitude, resulting in larger final produced volumes and higher total recovery.

Carbonates of the Frontier Formation, Uinta Basin, contain certain physical, petrographic, and isotopic characteristics best explained by the presence of sea-floor methane seeps. These seeps record episodes of hydrocarbon generation and demonstrate a potentially viable petroleum system.

A drone-generated map can translate to a million-dollar cost saving, or new fields or offsets with millions of dollars of new revenue. It's a great ROI, and the potential is just now beginning to be explored. For example, high-definition digital images can, depending on the sensors used, result in maps that show previously undetected structures and also surface geochemical anomalies, such as oil and gas micro-seeps or haloes. Welcome to an interview with Jason Pedersen, Space City Drones (https://www.spacecitydrones.com/), who discusses the new equipment, techniques, and opportunities with drones.

Carbonate rocks make up the majority of reservoirs being explored and exploited in unconventional resource plays. This trip will spend five days exploring a variety of modern, mud-dominated carbonate settings in South Florida, where the elements influencing the deposition of these unique strata will be observed first-hand and used as learning points for similar ancient deposits.

This field trip to the Cambrian microbial facies in the Mason, Texas, area will highlight several aspects of microbialite reservoirs including their composition, size and geometry. The Mason, Texas, outcrops afford spectacular views of both cross-section and plan views of microbialite facies, offering an opportunity for a truly 3-D view of the architecture of these potential reservoirs.
