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
