The complete paper discusses the importance of adequate preparation and the approaches used to overcome challenges of EOR operations, including handling back-produced polymer. Several well-stimulation products and techniques have been seen to benefit well productivity from recent field trials and implementations in carbonate reservoirs, including simpler acid fluid systems, integrated work flows, and coiled-tubing bottomhole assemblies. Researchers use novel methodology to measure the thermo-electric properties of native crude. Business Development VP Kirstie Boyle joins The SPE Podcast to talk startups. Recently part of a $4.5-million funding round, Kirstie shares what makes Interface Fluidics flow.
The sale of the Appalachia position is in line with Shell’s strategy to focus on its shales strategy. A producer in the Marcellus Basin selected Edge Gathering Virtual Pipelines 2 to capture and liquefy gas from its stranded wells in Tioga County. Initial operation is underway and is set to be ongoing until at least 2022. The projects are intended to accelerate the development and commercialization of treatment technologies to reduce waste water that is being injected into disposal wells and increase water supplies for reuse. Production from the Vaca Muerta now accounts for 23% of Argentina’s natural gas output.
Type curves used in the forecasting of reserves and production is not a new phenomenon in the oil and gas industry; however, it has become a critical tool in the reservoir engineer's tool kit because of the development of shale oil and gas plays and the re-development of traditional plays through horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracing. This two-day seminar is an introduction to the science behind type curves and their evolving use in today's oil and gas industry. This 2 day course will focus on the Alberta Cardium oil play and the BC Montney gas play, plus other tight light oil pays, and will provide insights into how type curves should best be created and applied. You will also identify some of the challenges behind understanding the production story and reserves assignments derived from type curves. This course is designed for engineering and geoscience professionals who may currently, or in the future, be involved in oil & gas plays where type curves are primarily used to determine future production and reserves.
This comprehensive course is an introduction or refresher for the techniques of evaluating Canadian oil and gas properties, but the techniques used in this course also apply to oil and gas properties elsewhere in the world. There is ample opportunity to work problems in class. By the end of this course, participants will be able to evaluate an oil and gas property and interpret evaluations done by others. The material in the course is very practical, with many tips and insights in evaluating wells, groups of wells, properties and companies. This course is for engineers, geologists, geophysicists, land negotiators, accountants, technologists, and anyone who wants to understand the process and results of evaluating Canadian oil and gas properties.
Gas-based EOR in tight unconventionals is a growing application to tap the vast unproduced oil and condensate resources in liquid-rich shale basins. The Huff-n-Puff process now involves several hundred wells in the Eagle Ford, and pilots are planned or ongoing in all other liquid-rich basins (Bakken, Permian, and Montney). The course will discuss the Huff-n-Puff gas EOR process specifically, but will also address relevant fundamentals of displacement-based gas EOR methods (miscibility, vaporization, and displacement) in tight unconventionals. Introduction to Unconventional gas EOR Summary of gas EOR methods and recovery mechanisms What makes unconventional gas EOR different than conventional? To learn about and share experiences in gas EOR in tight unconventionals.
A ROP optimization methodology is presented, using offset drilled wells data. Data is used to train a neural network model for different rock properties which is presented in the vertical section of the reservoir. By changing the drilling parameters like Weight on Bit, Rate of Penetration (ROP) for the target well is optimized. Offset drilled wells data is used to train neural network; the inputs to the model are RPM,WOB (Weight on Bit) and Mud Flow Rate as well as ROP of the offset wells; the output is the new setpoints for input parameters to get the best ROP on the target well. Using offset well drilling data, rock properties of different formations drilled will be calculated explicitly.
So many unprecedented changes have occurred in the Canadian oil business that it is impossible to compare the current downturn to anything seen before. Most of ConocoPhillips’ oil and gas production by the end of the next decade will come from its unconventional operations. But, for the near-term, the Houston independent will rely on conventional assets as it seeks to keep spending in check, decline rates low, and cash flow on the rise. Previous studies demonstrate that Montney rock samples present a dual-wettability pore network. Recovery of the oil retained in the small hydrophobic pores is uniquely challenging.
This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of scale-inhibitor-analysis techniques and describes how these techniques can be used to provide cost-effective scale management. Calcium sulfate (CaSO4) in the form of gypsum and anhydrite is one of the more prevalent evaporite minerals typically found in the carbonate rocks of the western Canadian sedimentary basin (WCSB).
