  • July 2020 Virtual Meeting: Does ESG matter anymore? Environmental issues in a low price world.

    Wednesday, July 15, 2020, 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM CT
    Link to Zoom Meeting will be provided on Tuesday July 14th to registered participants.  Abstract It was only a few short months ago when ESG (and especially the E for Environment) was a driving force in the oil industry.  It was influencing capital raising, operations and management compensation.  With the world significantly different due to the low commodity prices, has ESG taken a back seat?  We will discuss this and how environmental issues (especially flaring) are being addressed. Biography Grant Swartzwelder is the President of OTA Compression and OTA Environmental.  Through these companies, they provide equipment (VRU, Combustors and flares), service all these units (OTA and all other models) and provide environmental consulting on all things air related.  Mr. Swartzwelder holds a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University and MBA from Harvard Business School.

  • Generational Differences in the Workplace

    Wednesday, July 15, 2020, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM CET
    Abstract: How we work is often based on what generation we were born into. What we expect of our employers, what kind of benefits we want from work, and what kind of work arrangements. The way we manage those in our team, is also influenced by our generation. The energy industry, and the oil and gas companies in particular face a huge age gap, with the well documented “great crew change” and with a lot of the baby boomers retiring, more and more, millennials are finding themselves in management positions. There is a lot published about what Millennials expect in the workplace and how to manage expectations, but what happens when millennials advance into management? This presentation will document some of my personal stories, good and bad, some of the learning along the way and how to stay authentic on the way to becoming a young, female manager in the energy industry.   Bio: As Senior Manager, Engineering, Deb is responsible for managing Sproule's Denver office and is a critical part of the team that spearheads Sproule's business development initiatives in the U.S. market. Deb’s 15-years of oil and gas industry experience includes reserve and contingent resource evaluations, acquisitions, divestitures, security commission reports, reserve audits, and international property evaluations. Ms. Ryan also serves as an expert witness. Deb has extensive experience building Petrel and dynamic simulation models and also provides instruction for various conventional and unconventional reservoir engineering classes for PetroSkills. Prior to joining Sproule, Deb held various technical and management positions with MHA Petroleum Consultants, Arrow Energy and Woodside Energy. She currently serves on the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Denver Section Board as Past Chair, is on the International Committee of Business Leadership and Management, and is the nominee for North American Regional Director on the International Board of Directors. currently serves as the Treasurer for the WEN Foundation. In 2019 she was named by Denver Business Journal as one of the 40 Top Women in Energy, and received the SPE Rocky Mountain Service Award.

  • SPE OKC July Study Group

    Thursday, July 23, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM CT
    Temporal- and Spatial- variations of in-situ stress: a case study in the Woodford shale and modeling through viscous relaxation About this Event Abstract   We conducted a geomechanical case study to investigate the variations of in-situ stress and formation properties along two horizontal wells in the Woodford shale (WDFD), Oklahoma. The minimum horizontal stress (Shmin) indicated by the Instantaneous Shut-In Pressure (ISIP) of each frac stage, varies dramatically from stage to stage along both WDFD wells,which correlates well with the clay content. Variations of Shmin with lithology in these litho-facies can be plausibly explained by the viscous stress relaxation, which results in the diminishing difference between Sv and Shmin as the compliant component content increases. Prediction of Shmin through a viscoelastic model is in qualitative agreement with the measured ISIP values. Biography   Dr. Xiaodong Ma is an Oberassistent (senior scientist) and lecturer at ETH Zürich. He is affiliated with the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research – Supply of Electricity (SCCER-SoE) and the Department of Earth Sciences. His research interest lies in crustal stress, reservoir geomechanics, geothermal energy, and experimental rock mechanics. He is currently leading the geomechanics efforts of the Bedretto Underground Laboratory (BUL) for field experiments related to enhanced geothermal systems and induced seismicity. Dr. Ma obtained his PhD degree in geological engineering (2014) from University of Wisconsin-Madison, and subsequently conducted post-Doctoral research at the Stress and Crustal Mechanics Group, Stanford University before joining ETH Zürich in 2017. He had previously tackled on a variety of geomechanical challenges, including the experimental characterization of the true triaxial mechanical response of porous sandstones, poroelastic behavior of unconventional reservoir rocks, and stress variation in shales and its effect on the effectiveness of hydraulic fracturing.

  • SPE Brazil Subsea Symposium

    Tuesday, September 1 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020
    Brazil has been showing its leadership in subsea development through its unique combination of factors such as track record of successful deep-water fields, high interest on recent oil rounds, giant oil fields, R&D levy, already-established research centers, presence of major oil companies and key suppliers. The adoption of   “Subsea 4.0”   - a new business & technical mindset based in the introduction of digitalization, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and collaboration in the subsea industry - has potential to make Brazil a reference in technical and manufacturing aspects of the subsea industry in the world. Joint industry initiatives (operators, partners, regulators and suppliers) are key to address the issues and coordinate actions to increase competitiveness and sustainability of the subsea sector. In the  SPE Subsea   Symposium  key specialists and decision makers will have the opportunity to explore, debate and suggest proposals to strength the local subsea industry, discussing how research, development & innovation, technologies and digital transformation (BIG DATA, IoT, AR, sensors and Digital Twins) may reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TOC), and how industry could be more effective and efficient to convert R&D levies in the mechanism to create true differentiation.
