For the offshore sector, the collapse in oil demand and prices came just as the market was beginning to look up. Now many companies are focused on survival. This article discusses how various market segments, regions, and companies are faring in “the new reality.” A 3-year study of air quality, soils, groundwater, and waterways found few to no effects as a result of hydraulic fracturing operations in Surat Basin coal seam formations. The savings result in part from the depreciation of global currencies against the US dollar, as most operating expenses in oil and gas production are realized in local currencies.
The field produces 73,000 BOPD, and 10,000 optimization jobs are executed annually to support base production. Conventional oil and gas discovered resources in 2019 are on pace to rise 30% from last year and reach their highest level since the beginning of the industry downturn. Here, a recap of the first quarter's 15 biggest oil and gas discoveries, which altogether are propelling the increase. This paper reviews the efforts to exploit CBM resources in Indonesia, the challenges these efforts have faced, and possible solutions that can make operations more efficient and profitable. Although multiple-zone, downhole sand-control-tool systems have been in use since the early 1990s, these systems have been designed for jobs that require only low pump rates with low pressure differentials.
The course provides an introduction to Coalbed Methane from a basic understanding through to exploration, appraisal and development of the resource. History: Where did CBM come from and where is it established. Exploration: where to start, what data is required and how to get it. Appraisal: What is involved in the appraisal process of a CBM resource. Well design: There are many different varieties of CBM well design, and they result in different physical and environmental "footprints".
Geomechanics for Conventional and Unconventional Resources Course Description Geomechanics is playing an increasingly important role in developing conventional and unconventional resources (Coal Seam Gas and Shale Gas). This course will help you understand the fundamentals of geomechanics and its applications to conventional and unconventional reservoirs (CSG and Shale Gas) which will enable better field development decisions. You will learn the essential data required to construct a 1D MEM (1 Dimensional Mechanical Earth Model), Rock Testing planning for a geomechanics study, calibration of the model and application to drilling, sanding and hydraulic fracturing in conventional and unconventional reservoirs. You will also learn about data requirement and workflow for constructing a 3D MEM and its applications with case studies. Daily Activities Agenda (pdf) Learning Level Intermediate Course Length 1 Day Why Attend This one day short course is intended to cover the fundamentals of geomechanics and its applications in conventional and unconventional resources (Coal Seam Gas and Shale Gas).
This course offers insights on reservoir characterization approaches, integrated development planning methods, uncertainty management techniques, and modeling workflows accumulated through the experience of a number of CBM plays. Selection will also be reviewed, including approaches to model the performance of different well and completion configurations and implementing these into a full field modeling strategy. Techniques to assess the economic potential of the play will be illustrated, including methods for high-grading development areas into sectors of different attractiveness. Learn how to model the performance of different well and completion configurations and implement them into a full field model strategy. This introductory course is for geologists, reservoir engineers, subsurface managers, and team leaders.
This course focuses on the evaluation and development processes for coalbed methane (also known as CBM or CSG). Special emphasis is on the key exploration data and how it is applied to estimate well productivity, recovery volumes, dewatering times, commercial development potential, and the appropriate completion method. Several data quality control techniques are reviewed along with the many lessons learned from actual development efforts in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, and other locations around the world. Those familiar with oil and gas development who are interested in a thorough review of the concepts, techniques and strategies needed for evaluating and developing commercial coalbed methane projects. This course is for engineers, geo-science professionals, researchers, managers, business development specialists, and technical support staff.
He is a petroleum engineer for BP based in Houston, Texas. He recently moved back from Abu Dhabi where he spent 4 years helping a team start up a new offshore field. Clemens has worked in several operating environments across the US and in the Middle East in shale, tight sand, coal bed methane, and carbonate formations both onshore and offshore. At work he specializes in designing well interventions, stimulation and well testing, and new field startups. He is currently working on an audit team that looks at company projects across the globe. Originally from El Paso, Texas, Clemens later moved to Austin where he graduated from the University of Texas. He has been a volunteer with TWA since 2014 supporting multiple sections prior to transitioning to a leadership role in 2017. Before TWA he served in a leadership capacity for OTC’s The Next Wave, a one day conference for energy young professionals. Outside of work he enjoys golf, rock climbing, and traveling with his wife, Kate.
