This course provides attendees with a comprehensive methodology for well performance analysis with specific focus on unconventional oil and gas. The approach combines the use of several powerful techniques and will illustrate the practical aspects of production data analysis. Depending on interest and time available, examples from Barnett, Bakken, Montney, Horn River, Marcellus, Haynesville, and Eagle Ford plays will be presented. If you’d like to get more mileage from your production and flowing pressure data, this course is for you. This course is for engineers and technologists involved in exploitation, evaluating reserves, optimising production or analysing well tests.
The difficulty in applying traditional reservoir-simulation and -modeling techniques for unconventional-reservoir forecasting is often related to the systematic time variations in production-decline rates. This paper proposes a nonparametric statistical approach to resolve this difficulty. In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.
The interactive format includes field data, current approaches and use of technologies suited for shale developments. Technologies include logging, frac interval selection, multistage fracturing in horizontal wells, and a summary of field data from many shale plays. The technology for recovering oil and gas reserves from shale is changing the face of the industry worldwide. If shale reserves are part of your portfolio, this course is for you. This course is for well completion and production engineers, managers and geologists working with shale reserves.
Amirmasoud Kalantari-Dahaghi is a PhD student in Petroleum & Natural Gas Engineering at West Virginia University. Amirmasoud received his BS in petroleum engineering from Petroleum University of Technology and MS in petroleum and natural gas engineering from West Virginia University in 2010. His current research interests include modeling & simulation of shale gas reservoirs and computational Intelligence application in shale gas modeling. He played a coordinating role in several shale gas projects in Petroleum Engineering & Analytics Research Lab. (PEARL) at West Virginia University. Amirmasoud has published several technical papers and has presented in SPE conferences and also served as a technical reviewer for several SPE and other petroleum engineering related journals.
The current presentation date and time shown is a TENTATIVE schedule. The final/confirmed presentation schedule will be notified/available middle of October 2019. If we have learned anything from the North American experience, unconventional resources cannot be exploited by small incremental projects. If we are to be successful in developing these types of reservoirs, we have to make project scale operations work to bring these resources to market in a timely manner. A number of Eastern Hemisphere unconventional gas projects have raised interest, neared completion or are commencing deliveries.
Industry proponents and many leading academic institutions agree that natural gas is the safest, cleanest-burning bridge fuel. One risk in the development of this resource involves the inevitable leakage of methane. As the development of US shale plays expands to undeveloped or underdeveloped areas, the environmental issues related to surface facilities move to front and center. Operators, regulators, politicians, and the general public have become more aware of and concerned about environmental effects.
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.
From its record high in 2014, purchases of subsea equipment and SURF fell around 50% until reaching a low in 2018. New data suggest that the subsea market will be a top-performing oilfield service segment. The shale revolution is leading the US into a unique position: a bigger exporter of crude and petroleum liquids than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Subsea Production Systems—Will 2019 Be a Tipping Point? The past year ended with a surge of subsea tree awards as E&P operators locked in lower supply-chain cost.
A new report on shale gas from UNCTAD addresses the balance between providing affordable energy to developing countries and the agency’s climate change goals. Industry proponents and many leading academic institutions agree that natural gas is the safest, cleanest-burning bridge fuel. One risk in the development of this resource involves the inevitable leakage of methane.
