SPE, through its Energy4me programme, will present a free one-day energy education workshop for science teachers (grades 8–12). A variety of free instructional materials will be available to take back to the classroom. Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its importance while discovering the world of oil and natural gas exploration and production. Energy4me is an energy educational public outreach programme that highlights how energy works in our everyday lives and promote information about career opportunities in petroleum engineering and the upstream professions. SPE’s Energy4me programme values the role teachers and energy professionals play in educating young people about the importance of energy.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. Naturally fractured carbonate reservoirs hold a substantial volume of the world’s petroleum reserves and has a long production history. However, description of reservoir flow mechanism has been uncertain. Also, the existing reservoir surveillance tools are unreliable which results in reactive rather than proactive planning. Although significant strides have been made in computational technology, there is still need to accurately represent fracture properties in dynamic models.

This paper presents an analysis of a CO2-foam-injection pilot in the Salt Creek Field, Natrona County, Wyoming. A carbon-dioxide (CO2) -foam enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) pilot research program has been initiated to advance the technology of CO2 foam for mobility control in a heterogeneous carbonate reservoir. Aqueous foam has been demonstrated to have promise in conformance-control applications. This paper explores the foaming behavior of a CO2-soluble, cationic, amine-based surfactant. A growing chorus of suppliers, researchers, and service companies is persuading US operators to re-examine their use of slickwater in shale plays and consider displacing it with carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
The joint oil field had been offline since 2015, due to an operational dispute. The First Eocene is a multibillion-barrel heavy-oil carbonate reservoir in the Wafra field, located in the Partitioned Zone between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. After more than 60 years of primary production, expected recovery is low and provides a good target for enhanced-oil-recovery processes.
This paper outlines the value of 4D for reducing uncertainty in the range of history-matched models and improving the production forecast. This paper describes interpretation results of a 4D seismic-monitoring program in a challenging Middle East carbonate reservoir. Integrated surveillance is critical for understanding reservoir dynamics and improving field management. A key component of the surveillance is areal monitoring of subsurface changes by use of time-lapse geophysical surveys such as 4D seismic. In this paper, the authors propose a new method for time-lapse-seismic surveys focused on water-injector wells.
The good news is 95% of the oil companies in Texas are expected to survive 2020, which means there is a lot of bad news to endure. Can Regulators Move Fast Enough To Fix a Shattered Market? Texas Railroad commissioners recognize the battering Texas oil companies, and their workers, are taking, but will continue considering their options until 5 May. Even some free-market advocates are calling for regulators to step in and try to help pull them out of what feels like a chasm by setting production limits. As studies point to increased emissions, ExxonMobil is stepping up efforts to detect and mitigate methane release.
