In The Rush of Liquids Rich Basins: Some Permian Basin Case Histories

ABSTRACT: Presented will be Permian Basin case histories on the effects and consequences of not conducting enough research, not gathering enough data, or not taking enough time to thoroughly analyze and evaluate results. In the headlong rush to capture and hold land positions, “closeology” and follow-the leader practices can overtake sound methodology in geoscience, engineering, and business.
