The combination will operate and share ownership of midstream gas assets in the Utica and Marcellus Shale plays. CPPIB financially backs operator Encino Energy, which last year acquired Chesapeake Energy’s Utica assets. The high level of dissolved iron commonly present in the Marcellus waters of Pennsylvania and West Virginia adversely affects the ability of scale inhibitor to inhibit calcium carbonate scale.
SPE awards recognize members who have contributed exceptional service and leadership to the society and the community, as well as those who made major professional contributions to their technical disciplines. While digital-strategy implementation is at least superficially reliant on technical and architectural advances and vendor solutions, the narrow focus on technology has come at the expense of a data-centric digitalization approach. Atlas and Fênix, also from Petrobras, are the two largest supercomputers in Latin America. Satelytics, a US-based geospatial analytics software startup, will receive $5 million from BP Ventures to develop its methane-detection technology and then scale its applications across the oil and gas sector. For the first time, attendees will have open access to both societies’ technical programs, a combined exhibit floor, and joint networking events. Oil and gas companies are awash with data. Engineers and geoscientists struggle to work with massive amounts of unstructured, yet valuable, data because it is not organized, is difficult to manage, and may not be complete. New work flows now allow this data to be organized successfully.
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. Researchers at Texas Tech University have released a study into wastewater production and disposal in the Marcellus Shale, proposing disposal hubs across the state of Pennsylvania that could reduce trucking distances. As part of a revised strategic plan, the Spanish company says it will invest more than $9 billion on its overall operations by 2020, with much of it going to its upstream business unit. Predictive models may help in the estimation of produced water volumes and the optimization of the locations for water recycling and disposal facilities to reduce truck hauling distances.
Big-data mining techniques can help determe the type-curves and the resulting estimated ultimate recovery of an asset being evaluated for acquisition. In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well. In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.
The new numbers for the Marcellus Shale and Point Pleasant-Utica Shale represent large increases from previous USGS assessments of both formations. Production and proved reserves in the Permian Basin’s Wolfcamp Shale and Bone Spring Formation are reaching new heights, and a new assessment from the US Geological Survey indicates the industry is just scratching the subsurface when it comes to what may be technically recoverable. Major oil discoveries by Armstrong Oil & Gas and ConocoPhillips have compelled the US Department of the Interior to reassess its estimate of undiscovered, technically recoverable resources in parts of Alaska. The list of the biggest gas plays in the US is being revised as the US Geological Survey creates new estimates based on additional drilling results and available rock samples. New at Number 2 is the Mancos Shale on the Western Slope of the Rockies with 66 Tcf in recoverable reserves.
The sale of the Appalachia position is in line with Shell’s strategy to focus on its shales strategy. The combination will operate and share ownership of midstream gas assets in the Utica and Marcellus Shale plays. CPPIB financially backs operator Encino Energy, which last year acquired Chesapeake Energy’s Utica assets.
The new numbers for the Marcellus Shale and Point Pleasant-Utica Shale represent large increases from previous USGS assessments of both formations. A fracturing test site in West Virginia has quietly made a data trove available on the website of the Marcellus Shale Energy and Environment Lab. A drilling team has focused on increasing lateral lengths in the Marcellus Shale. The team determined which operational practices would need to be revised in order to drill and case laterals in excess of 18,000 ft. In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.
This one-day training event introduces completion, production, surveillance and reservoir engineers to the design of fiber-optic DTS (distributed temperature sensing) and DAS (distributed acoustic sensing) well installations. A basic understanding of the principles and benefits of DTS, DAS and surveillance monitoring technology, in general, is assumed. This course provides both an overview of water management and an in-depth look at critical issues related to sourcing (acquiring), reusing, recycling, and disposing of water in hydraulic fracturing operations. The course starts with a background of hydraulic fracturing operations and the different plays around North America. Options being used for transport, storage, reuse, and disposal are described for each of the different regions.
