Knowing something about Mother Earth’s long history of constant change, we don’t immediately blame humankind for any detected current apparent change in the natural world -- and a three-year trend loses significance when your yardstick is in millions (or even hundreds of thousands) of years.

Field Seminar
Houston, Texas
Friday, 1 April 2022, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

Denbury Inc. has been operating a continuous CO2 EOR flood in the West Hastings oil field since December 2010 resulting in the associated storage of over 26 million MT of CO2 and 31 million barrels of tertiary oil produced. As part of the tour, Denbury geologists and engineers will provide an overview of the field history; current operations and CO2 management; and a discussion of the structure, stratigraphy, and reservoir characteristics of the Frio Fm.

VG Abstract

This is a less-technical education topic. It can be condensed to an hour or given as 2 two-hour sessions. It stresses selected controversial aspects of fracking that touch some combination of environment and economics and includes a short video of how fracking is done.

VG Abstract

Microseismicity induced by hydraulic fracture stimulation of a horizontal well was mapped with a near-surface buried array. Distinct linear trends of events were not parallel to the direction of fast shear wave polarization measured in the reservoir with a crossed-dipole anisotropy tool. Analysis of core from a nearby well revealed numerous calcite-filled fractures that did not induce shear wave polarization, but did significantly impact the failure behavior of the reservoir rock during the stimulation treatment. Hydraulic fracture simulation with DFN modeling and source mechanism analysis supports the interpretation of reactivated existing fractures rather than the formation of hydraulically-induced tensile fractures.

VG Abstract

Hydraulic fracturing has been around for decades. This talk describes some of the first applications of the technology, how it developed over time, and our current understanding of its impacts with some discussion of both water and earthquake hazards.
