Designed to expose geoscientists to the language and methodologies commonly employed by reservoir engineers to estimate oil and gas reserves, this course will include a brief review of reservoir rock properties, introduction to fluid properties, reservoir drive mechanisms, and commonly used techniques for estimating reserves including analogy, volumetric analysis, material balance, decline curve analysis, and computer simulation.
The relatively recent, very large discoveries offshore Brazil have put pre-salt exploration in the South Atlantic back in the foreground. Pre-salt exploration history, however, is far more ancient and marked with some major successes – but also many failures. Here’s a brief overview of this exploration in West Africa until the M’Boundi discovery, which will be described in detail as it brings some lessons that readers can discover for themselves.
The call for abstracts has been issued for the next Unconventional Resources Technology Conference, which will be held July 20-22 in San Antonio.
The call for abstracts has been opened for the next AAPG International Conference and Exhibition, which will be held Sept. 13-16 in Melbourne, Australia. The meeting theme is “A Powerhouse Emerges: Energy for the Next 50 Years,” created in part to signify the 50th anniversary of the Gippsland Basin oil discovery, which unlocked Australasian market activity.
AAPG is committed to connecting promising original research with much-needed funding and is continually seeking – and finding – new ways to make that potential a reality.
MOOSE – Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment – is a software platform designed to make predictive modeling and simulation faster and easier.
Colombia’s unconventional and heavy oil potential are the focus of “Expanding Unconventional Resources in Colombia with New Science – From Heavy Oil to Shale Gas/Shale Oil Opportunities,” an AAPG geosciences technology workshop (GTW) set Dec. 10-11 in Bogotá.
Despite a few lean times – including a stretch when it was derided as the Dead Sea – the GOM always comes roaring back to life to reclaim its position as the shining star of domestic hydrocarbon production.
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.
This course is an introduction to the Bakken/Three Forks resource play. The play has proven to be economic and successful for many operators. A wide range of topics will be covered to familiarize the participant with the important nuances of the Bakken and Three Forks.
This course will address integration of source rock, produced oil and gas, and mud gas data to better understand and exploit 3-dimensional details of petroleum systems. Carbon isotope and oil biomarker geochemistry will be stressed as a way to determine quantity and type of generated hydrocarbons and migration distance and direction within source rock and tight oil plays.
This course will evaluate data from the nano- to macro-scale in order to show how different types of data can be integrated in the evaluation of sweet spots.
This course is an introduction to the heterogeneous nature of shales and mudstones and provides guidance on how to work effectively with these complex lithologies.
This course is an introductory course in shale reservoir evaluation. It includes reservoir geology in terms of depositional facies, mineralogy, fractures, and rock type delineation.
This one day course will include background material on hydrocarbon-bearing shales, methods of evaluation, and case studies of both gas and oil bearing shales.
The course is a practical and applied introduction to geochemical techniques routinely employed in shale-gas/condensate and tight-oil reservoir assessment. Class emphasis is on explaining which tools and techniques can best address specific questions and how to interpret conflicting data from different analyses.
Geoscientists, petrophysicists, engineers, and managers who are seeking to improve their effectiveness in exploring, appraising, and developing shale reservoirs will learn critical geoscience and engineering aspects to help quantify uncertainty to help book more reserves.
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.
This workshop is the outgrowth of continued cooperation between AAPG & EAGE to develop a series of multi-disciplined gatherings dedicated to understanding, completing & producing tight sandstone & carbonate reservoirs.
Cross disciplinary workflows play an important part of successful characterization of shale reservoirs. This course discusses how the artificial kerogen maturity of organic-rich Green River shale affects the petrophysical, micro-structural, geochemical and elastic properties.
Learn to critically evaluate current issues that can impact growth and sustainability of oil and gas ventures.
Projects in several shales will be discussed, including Marcellus, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Fayetteville, Montney, and Barnett, as will several seismically-detectable drivers for success including lithofacies, stress, pre-existing fractures, and pore pressure.
Recognition and Correlation of the Eagle Ford, Austin Formations in South Texas can be enhanced with High Resolution Biostratigraphy, fossil abundance peaks and Maximum Flooding Surfaces correlated to Upper Cretaceous sequence stratigraphic cycle chart after Gradstein, 2010.
The e-symposium contains several case studies and log examples of bypassed pay and unconventional resources including Niobrara, Bakken, Marcellus, offshore GOM and others examples including processed log quality issues.
This study will focus in the combination of λρ – μρ inversion with clustering analysis techniques in order to discriminate brittle zones in the Barnett Shale.
This presentation describes a proven workflow that uses a standard narrow azimuth 3D seismic, conventional logs, image logs and core data to build five key reservoir properties required for an optimal development of shale plays.
The Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas is one of the more exciting shale plays in the United States at the current time.
This e-symposium will focus on how surface geochemical surveys and Downhole Geochemical Imaging technologies can be utilized jointly to directly characterize the composition of hydrocarbons vertically through the prospect section.
