Collaboration. Scott Singleton, geophysical technology adviser at Independence Resources Management in Houston, wants to underscore that one word. He believes that if there’s a single ingredient to success in unconventional fields – and the one concept from which those in unconventionals have unfortunately moved away – it’s that geologists, geophysicists and engineers have to work together for the benefit of everyone.

Trends in exploration are moving away from new ventures and refocusing on proven basins – most likely inspired by the success of the Permian Basin. The Permian Basin is now known as a “super basin,” and has become a beacon of hope for Latin America and South America, which are now known to have substantial super basin potential as well.

From high-altitude, windswept prairies in southwestern Wyoming, the span of the powerful Wind River and Wyoming Ranges can be seen in the distance. This is home to the Pinedale Anticline Project and the Jonah Field, located in Sublette County, Wyo. In 2000, this was the site of one of the most productive gas fields in the continental United States. Gas reserves were estimated at up to 40 trillion cubic feet. That was enough to serve the nation’s entire natural gas demand for 22 months.

Over the past 10 years, tight oil boosted the United States back to world prominence in crude oil production. Today’s projections tie future U.S. production levels to continued strength in tight oil output, especially from the Permian Basin. Considering the importance of unconventional oil plays in the overall U.S. production picture, it’s useful to examine the outlook for tight oil. And in the Permian Basin, that outlook isn’t as bright as previously thought.

The earliest oil fields were found after explorationists drilled where they saw oil seeps on the surface. Now, new technologies and techniques can make microseeps visible and, as in the earliest discoveries, point to where oil may be found beneath the surface.

Rift Basin Exploration 17-19 June 2019 | Bahrain This three-day workshop will be dedicated to sharing knowledge, ideas, and workflows pertaining to exploration in rift basins. The event will emphasize case studies involving different play types structural and stratigraphic in carbonates and clastics reservoirs — in order to help focus explorationists in their search for these types of basins. Integrated Emerging Exploration Concepts: Challenges, Future Trends and Opportunities 24-26 June 2019 | Dhahran, Saudi Arabia Join us for this exciting event taking place at the Kempinski Al Othman Hotel Al Khobar and find out all about new exploration concepts. Over three days, the workshop will emphasize the importance of identifying new thinking and approaches to develop exploration concepts. The primary goal of this event is to bring industry professionals together to discuss challenges, new ideas, future trends and case studies.

Owing to the unique performance characteristics in unconventional reservoirs, gas/oil ratio models, which are predictive in conventional wells, may or may not be accurate in determining the success or failure of the unconventional.
