Reality-Based Reservoir Development: New Teams, Techniques, Technologies

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

We need to bring together engineering, geophysics, and geology to stop developing models that do not hold up to reality. We need to make decisions based on a coordinated "real world" view that takes into consideration reservoir drive, pore architecture, flow / fracture networks, potential formation damage, pressure problems, compartmentalization, continuity, sweet spots, and more.

We also need to take a cold, hard look at case studies and potential candidates. What are our case studies telling us? Where do they create a workable new paradigm that we can implement with success? But, when and where do they simply perpetuate false assumptions?

Join us for an intense one-day workshop in which we address the following:

  • using new technologies to improve recoverability
  • using new techniques and methods of interpreting data
  • how to handle "drilled but not completed" wells
  • working with “mature” shale plays
  • once dead, always dead?  (pressure / flow)
  • where’s the frac interference? What is it really doing?
  • opportunities with “porpoised” wells
  • what happens to the proppants & the induced fractures over time?
  • overcoming bad decisions made in the past
  • smart petrophysics
  • what your core analysis should be telling you
  • overlooked information in your well logs
  • hidden gold in your petrophysics
  • case studies that show us unexpected outcomes / possibilities
  • optimal completions
  • good candidates for revitalization (a "live" property or prospect)
  • opportunities (may have working interest available)
Can we economically recover what has been left behind? Can we make what is wrong right? The answer is a solid "yes" but it requires teamwork and new techniques of interpreting data and using new technologies.

Join us to discuss, share, and learn! For additional information
