How many times have you kicked yourself because you made decisions without really having time to get all the expert opinions? When could your team have been better – both in determining where to explore and how to complete a well?

There’s been a lot of good news recently about water and hydraulic fracturing: the EPA’s and other scientists’ research into water consumption for hydraulic fracturing found minimal strain on water resources, and natural gas power generation significantly reduces water use in power generation.

When it comes to providing students “real-world” experience in the classroom, some schools stand out more than others. Consider the University of Kansas, where one interdisciplinary course teams geoscience and petroleum engineering students to analyze live data from partnering oil companies.

Unconventional resources have changed the exploration and production business and are changing our profession. It’s a change for the better, where today geoscientists and engineers work closely to identify prospective areas, drill them and optimize recovery of hydrocarbons from the reservoir.

After the city of Denton, Texas, in the Barnett Shale voted to ban hydraulic fracturing last November, the Texas legislature shifted into high gear to ensure no other Texas town would follow Denton’s renegade move.

Focusing on rocks, learning from others and implementing new technologies were the keys to success identified during a talk on “Evolution of Unconventional Oil Plays from Early Innovations to Future Challenges,” at the DPA luncheon held during the recent AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Denver.

Unconventional resources have propelled the United States to the top of the world’s energy producers, and the downturn is just another opportunity to figure out how to keep getting better.

Unconventional plays in the Permian Basin are nothing new to the shale scene, as the basin has been horizontally drilled and hydraulically fractured for years. Still, a new approach for evaluating sweet spots, particularly in the Avalon Shale of the play’s Delaware Basin, is slowly changing the way unconventional resources are explored – and perhaps one day, developed.

This four-day trip to the internationally-significant Wanganui Basin and North Taranaki coastal sections will examine Late Miocene to Pleistocene components of shelf- to basin-floor depositional systems deposited during an overall tectonically-controlled regressive phase. We will examine and discuss the interplay between tectonics and sea-level change, and the reservoir architecture and sequence stratigraphic framework of these well-exposed rocks. The outcrop geology will be supported by a range of seismic, well and supplementary industry data.

Sequence stratigraphy provides a framework for the integration of geological, geophysical, biostratigraphic and engineering data, with the aim of predicting the distribution of reservoir, source rock and seal lithologies. It gives the geoscientist a powerful predictive tool for regional basin analysis, shelf-to-basin correlation, and characterization of reservoir heterogeneity. This course will examine the underlying geological principles, processes and terminology related to sequence stratigraphic interpretation. The strength of this course is the application of these basic principles to subsurface datasets in a series of well-founded exercises.
