Dr. Edwards has extensive experience in the oil and gas exploration and production industry worldwide. He holds a BA degree from Keele University in Geology and Chemistry, and a Doctorate in Petrology from the University of Manchester. He had a 17 year career with BP that spanned from R&D through to front line operations and project management. Tony was a founder member of BP's Integrated Operations Program, Field of the Future, and was subsequently the global director for the Advanced Collaborative Environment Program. In 2006 he moved to BG-Group to launch its digital oilfield program and three years later, in January 2009 he founded Stepchange Global, a dedicated digital oilfield advisory company.
Dr. Lee holds BS, MS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Early in his career, John worked for ExxonMobil and specialized in integrated reservoir studies. He later joined the Petroleum Engineering faculty at Texas A&M, and became Regents Professor of Petroleum Engineering. While at A&M, he also served as a consultant with S.A. Holditch & Associates, where he specialized in reservoir engineering aspects of unconventional gas resources. Professor Lee joined the University of Houston faculty in September 2011 and held the Cullen Distinguished University Chair until September 2015, when he rejoined the Texas A&M Faculty.
This three-part webinar series is focused on introducing the basics of geomechanics and geomechanics services to a wide audience - from service approvers (management), to engineers and scientists who might be called upon to support and evaluate the value of geomechanics efforts but who do not have specific training in geomechanics. While presented as a three-part series, the webinars are laid out in a fashion from more general to more technical. The first webinar is intended to present a high-level explanation and background on geomechanics for individuals who would both consider the need for geomechanics as well as determine the value for a given application. What geomechanics is (and isn't) will be presented as well as some history and explanation of what geomechanics technical competence might look like. The second and third webinars are focused on specific technical issues surrounding geomechanics: formation stress, formation pressure, formation mechanical properties (and strength) and the influence of geometry.
Does managing your industrial assets feel like firefighting? Oil and gas companies now have the data to cut the need for reactive management of large industrial assets. Instead, with industrial AI platforms, industrial engineers are using predictive AI to reduce unplanned downtime, cut maintenance costs, and improve safety. In this webinar, learn how a leading oil and gas company is benefiting from AI predictions that provide up to 16 days' of advanced notice of a potential asset failure.
An algorithm for quantifying interfaces in general arrangement 2D drawings is the core of this work. The method here presented builds upon an unpublished prototype developed in 2015, representing each relevant GA space as a two-dimensional design block, heavily inspired by the design building block (DBB) philosophy. An algorithm checks the interfaces of all design blocks in real-time and presents a matrix with the quantification. Both algorithm and interactive web-application are available online for use and scrutiny. The idea is relatively simple, almost ludic, but to the knowledge of the authors no similar method has been public available yet. Fancy data-driven graphics are used to grasp interpretations of these values. A proposal for diverse use of interaction data in GA is mentioned in the discussion, as well as an invitation for colleagues to reproduce and improve the method.
Derrick W. Turk is an independent data science consultant supporting the E&P industry. His consulting work frequently incorporates completion optimization, reservoir characterization, machine learning, and custom software development. He is the author of the aRpsDCA open-source library for decline curve analysis and developer of several proprietary custom software systems for production forecasting, portfolio modeling, and other tasks. Prior to his consulting career, he worked as a reservoir engineer assisting exploration and A&D efforts with numerical and statistical modeling. Derrick holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Texas and has been a member of SPE since 2010.
As we emerge from 2020 operation lulls, operators have continued to experiment with refracturing of unconventional horizontal wells, across many unconventional basins. This technology session will provide an overview of the U.S. refracturing landscape, case studies of economics, operational lessons, and what the industry has learned from emerging data-gathering techniques. The workshop webinar is categorized under the Completions technical discipline.
The ability to detect interference between frac'ed and nearby wells is important to optimize completion strategies (most obviously well spacings and/or pumped volumes). And it is advantageous to be able to detect such interference in time to make operational decisions such as when to shut down or move to the next step in delivering a complex pumping schedule, to avoid over- or under-pumping. Interference between a frac'ed well and its neighbors can be detected using surface or downhole pressure changes induced in the neighbor well by direct connections between the pumped well and the neighbor well and/or by casing deformation induced by the offset frac; or by temperature changes or deformation associated with the interfering frac detected using fiber run into the neighbor wellbore or permanently installed as part of the completion. The benefits and drawbacks of these techniques are well known. These may include the requirement to run equipment into the well or to modify or add additional operational procedures.
Mr. Cameron is responsible for the marketing at MSA The Safety Company of their fixed gas and flame detector portfolio, within the Middle East, Africa, India and Russian region. He has extensive experience in the F&G industry having worked for three fire and gas detector manufactures over a period of almost 20 years. Altogether his experience in the field of fire and safety spans almost 40 years, with the last 25 years based in the Middle East and working closely with the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical companies in the region. He has spoken at numerous events in the past and given various webinars on F&G topics.
