On Thursday March 20, SPE-NYNE hosted its third Distinguished Lecture of the year, given by Dr. Tayfun Babadagli from the University of Alberta.  Dr. Babadagli's talk, titled "Development of Mature Oil Fields: Enhanced Recovery Option," used both experimental and historical data to examine ways to extend the lives of mature oil fields in conventional reservoirs as the residual oil becomes more difficult to extract.  For those who missed the presentation or if you wish to review a copy of the slides, please click here: Tayfun_Babadagli_DL_Presentation_Slides.pdf

Thank you to everyone who attended this event, especially the members for whom this was their first SPE-NYNE event.  We always enjoy getting to know the new faces and learning about many energy/oil and gas related companies in the area and hope you will be able to join us for upcoming events.

We also ask that you please fill out the lecture evaluation. Thank you!

Some of you may remember our joint YCEI and SPE  symposium on unconventionals last year at Yale University (Here). The symposium was concluded by a panel session moderated by John Deutsch in which Richard Liroff, John  Nolon and Hannah Wiseman discussed the best practices in development of unconventional resources.

Here is an hour long YouTube
video of this panel session containing the discussions on government regulations on shale gas exploration and production, best management practices, investments, and risks.

We will share the videos of the presentations once we get the permission from the speakers.
