The “Fracts” of Life The “Fracts” of Life Tuesday, 08 October 2019
Abstract:  Hydraulic fracturing is the single most commonly applied completion and intervention approach across the globe, from high-permeability reservoirs at one end of the scale to hard to recover formations at the other.  Constantly, changing, adapting and challenging established thinking, it is one of the most successfully applied techniques that is used within the oil and gas industry.  While we are all taught and introduced to fracturing theory and fundamentals, there is no real replacement

Lecture Title Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) for Unconventional Reservoirs: The Next Big Thing? Lecture Title Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) for Unconventional Reservoirs: The Next Big Thing? Tuesday, 03 September 2019
Abstract: Unconventional reservoirs have had tremendous success over the last decade due to technical advances including long horizontal wells and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing; however, their potential may be even higher. There are trillions of barrels of oil in these resources, and while wells start out at high rates, they decline quickly and primary recovery factors are low, often in the single digits. This clearly indicates a need for some form of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) for these types

Enhanced Reservoir Characterization and Well Performance with Integration of Static and Dynamic Data Enhanced Reservoir Characterization and Well Performance with Integration of Static and Dynamic Data Tuesday, 04 June 2019
Enhanced Reservoir Characterization and Well Performance with Integration of Static and Dynamic Data   Reservoirs can exhibit heterogeneity in terms of porosity, permeability, in shaly sands  and in carbonates along with   fractures, vugs, including wettability.   This heterogeneity affects the well evaluation, horizontal well placement and performance estimation that would be crucial for completion, testing  and reservoir management decisions.    This presentation will discuss a methodology for
