  • A Cool Way to Store Carbon Dioxide via Clathrate Hydrates

    Monday, August 21, 2023, 07:30 AM - 09:00 AM CT
    Climate change is known to be dominantly caused by the increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2). Over the years, the clathrate hydrate process has demonstrated promising potential for innovative applications, such as natural gas storage, carbon dioxide capture and storage, seawater desalination, and cold energy storage. CO2 hydrate, a solid compound consisting of molecular CO2 encased in crystalline lattices formed by water molecules, is an attractive option for long-term CO2 sequestration. Methane (CH4) hydrates in oceanic sediments have remained stable for millions of years, serving as a natural analog. Thus, the question arises: can we store CO2 in the form of hydrates in oceanic sediments indefinitely? In this presentation, the state-of-the-art on clathrate hydrate technology pertaining to carbon dioxide storage will be discussed in detail. Compact CO2 storage capacity, high stability, and the use of water as a solvent are key advantages of the hydrate-based CO2 storage system. Additionally, future research and development opportunities, as well as pathways for commercialization, will be explored.

  • AGM and Distinguished Lecture: CO2 Geological Storage from 8 Years of Dynamic Injection at the Aquis

    Wednesday, September 20, 2023, 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM SGT
    CO2 Geological Storage from 8 Years of Dynamic Injection at the Aquistore CO2 Storage Site Rick Chalaturnyk University of Alberta and GeoVer Inc. Abstract: Do not underestimate the complexity of CO2 injection behaviour for full scale projects The Aquistore CO2 Storage Project is an integral component of SaskPower’s Boundary Dam CO2 Capture Project located in southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada. Operational synergies between the capture facility (supply) and CO2-EOR (demand) also require excess CO2 to be transported via pipeline to the Aquistore site where it is injected into a hyper-saline fluid filled sandstone formation at approximately 3300 m depth. The reservoir temperature is approximately 120 °C, and average reservoir pressure is 35 MPa. Preliminary laboratory measurements on core plugs gave average values of porosity and permeability, 6% and 5 mD respectively. The Aquistore site includes one injection well and one observation well approximately 150m offset from the injection well. Both wells are completed with various measurement and monitoring equipment, including distributed temperature sensing lines (DTS), distributed acoustic sensing line (DAS) and tubing/casing-conveyed pressure gauges at different levels to measure pressure and temperature changes downhole during to CO2 injection. This presentation focuses on dynamic responses that have been recorded since the completion of the CO2 injection well and the start of CO2 injection began on April 16, 2015 and discusses issues ranging from well integrity to reservoir simulation to seismic monitoring. This unprecedented opportunity to collect monitoring data on the dynamics of phase changes (i.e. supercritical to liquid to gas phase shifts) from the wellhead to the geological formation associated with CO2 injection. Real time monitoring data of these phase changes in the injection stream under fully integrated operational conditions provides unparalleled information for understanding geological storage under these conditions and optimizing completion systems Biography: Rick Chalaturnyk is a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Alberta and holds an NSERC/Energi Simulation Industrial Research Chair in Reservoir Geomechanics. His Reservoir Geomechanics Research Group focusses primarily on subsurface processes related to energy processes. He has established four unique GeoInnovation Environments, which includes 3D printing of rocks, high temperature/pressure reservoir geomechanical testing capability and a geotechnical beam centrifuge. Rick has over 20 years’ experience in CCUS projects, is currently working with PTRC and SaskPower in the Aquistore Project, is pursuing the integration of CO2 storage and geothermal opportunities and is involved with several other international CCS initiatives. For the AGM the committee is calling for nominees. The current list of nominees is below. Reach out to Steph with nominees. Payment to WCW (treasurer) via paynow. Please RSVP ASAP.

  • The Role Of Reservoir Management In Lowering Our Carbon Footprint

    Thursday, October 5, 2023, 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM WAT
    Abstract: Engineers and scientists play a critical role in advancing innovative solutions to manage the carbon footprint and support activities that lead us towards the ‘global net-zero’ objective. Our traditional oil and gas production operations have generally not taken a systems approach that could result in lower carbon intensity. Effective reservoir and asset management practices can help improve this situation. In addition, subsurface aquifers and depleted reservoirs are the ideal place for supporting other industries reduce their carbon footprint due to the lack of currently available scalable commercial technologies. Evolving reservoir management practices support this immediate need. This talk will focus on understanding the basics of carbon intensity in our operations, provide some thoughts on how reservoir management practices can help improve the operations and ponder the activities of carbon storage in reservoirs. Dr. Jitendra Kikani is the Director of Reservoir Management (RM) for international businesses in the Chevron Technical Center. In this role, he is responsible for functional excellence, subsurface integrity and project assurance, as well as people development. Has published several dozen peer-reviewed technical papers and contributed to number of published books. He authored a textbook on Reservoir Surveillance which was published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) in 2013.

  • Distinguished Lecturer - Transforming How to Evaluate Wells and Unlock Reserves: Deep Transient Test

    Friday, October 6, 2023, 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM ICT
    Society of Petroleum Engineers Distinguished Lecturer Transforming How to Evaluate Wells and Unlock Reserves: Deep Transient Testing François-Xavier Dubost SLB 18:00 06 October 2023 BELGO, 159A Nguyen Van Thu, Q1 Abstract: Dynamic data, acquired using wireline formation testing or well testing techniques, are used by operators to address uncertainties associated with reserve estimates and productivity, while rationalizing field development and production costs. However, these evaluation techniques provide dynamic data at different length scales, and with different environmental footprint, cost, and operational constraints. To help reduce development risks, a Deep Transient Testing (DTT) technique was developed in response to an industry and customer need in 2015 and has been used since then by many oil companies. The method is a hybrid technique between wireline formation testing and Drill Stem Testing (DST) designed to meet local regulatory requirements to unlock reserves. It is based on innovations with higher resolution measurements, pumping of large fluid volumes on wireline at higher rates, extending testing time and circulating the produced fluids out of the well for safety and well control, without the requirement for surface flaring. These features enable dynamic reservoir characterization in thicker formations, higher permeabilities and with much deeper volume of investigation than previously available. Pressure transient testing and sampling results from DTT technique is now becoming an important component in operating companies’ reservoir evaluation programs. The DTT technique is embedded in a digital framework to provide early reservoir fluids models and reservoir insights coupled to geological models, so that well deliverability and prospect commerciality can be evaluated. DTT also aligns with global sustainable development goals, by enabling reductions in CO2 emissions by up to 96% percent, and offering high operational efficiency compared with other wireline formation testing systems to significantly reduce energy consumption. Biography: Francois-Xavier Dubost focused for 27 years on reservoir performance evaluation and recently joined the SLB HQ team as Reservoir Technical Director. Graduated from Herriot Watt University with an MSc in Reservoir Evaluation and Management, Francois has been looking at all angles of reservoir engineering topics from acquisition to interpretation and incorporation of the measurements into field models. He recently dedicated his interests in the field of Deep Transient Testing, introducing this topic to the industry with the first published papers, presenting it in different expert meetings and lectures, and acting as a leader internationally to develop this new technique. Francois co-authored over 30 publications and filed over 10 patents predominantly on Formation Testing & Sampling #DistinguishedLecturer #ReservoirDescriptionandDynamics

  • Tech Talk: Retrofit Thru-tubing Deep Gas Lift - A Case Study from Brunei

    Thursday, November 2, 2023, 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM ICT
    Retrofit Thru-tubing Deep Gas Lift - A Case Study from Brunei Scott Gutleber & Threedhases Jiamjarasrungsi Weatherford 02 November 2023 BELGO - Q1 HCMC Abstract Scott and Nat will present a case study for a shut-in offshore oil producer in Brunei with multiple tubing leaks. An innovative thru-tubing retrofit gas lift system was installed, isolating the leaks and allowing for lift gas injection below the production packer. The gas lift valve was placed 200 m TVD deeper than the lowermost side pocket mandrel, enabling production from a deeper depth than would be possible using conventional gas lift. Within four hours of starting lift gas injection, the well was flowing steadily with 900 kPa of FWHP. This cost-effective approach helped the operator avoid an expensive workover and maximize production potential. Biographies Threedhases Jiamjarasrungsi (Nat) is Operations Manager at Weatherford with over 12 years of experience in artificial lift and production solutions in Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam. He holds a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering and began his career as an artificial lift engineer.

  • Mastering the Challenges of High-Frequency Torsional Oscillations in Hard Rock Drilling

    Thursday, November 9, 2023, 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM WAT
    Abstract: Vibrations induced by the drilling process limit the drilling efficiency directly and indirectly. Directly if the delivery of power to the cutting process is negatively impacted through vibrations, indirectly if a limitation of the operational parameters is necessary to reduce vibrational loads and avoid reliability issues. The lecture gives an overview on these aspects focusing on High- Frequency Torsional Oscillations (HFTO). HFTO is increasingly discussed in the drilling industry since about ten years, driven by the new ability to systematically detect them The audience shall connect drilling in hard and dense formation with PDC cutters and rotary steerable systems to HFTO. The complexity of the proper interpretation of the measurements related to HFTO is highlighted. Also, audience is kindly asked to consider HFTO in the planning phase of each drilling operations, and if expected from the drilling application, to plan for it accordingly

  • CO2 in, CH4 out! A Useful Concept for Hydrates?

    Monday, November 27, 2023, 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM CT
    Overview Natural gas hydrate deposits are found on all active and passive continental margins as well as in permafrost regions and deep lakes. Their worldwide occurrence and the large quantities of natural gas they contain make them appear to be both an energy source and a potential climate factor. In order to use the methane bound in gas hydrate deposits in the most climate-neutral way possible, it has been proposed to combine the extraction of natural gas from the gas hydrates with the injection of CO2: The methane gas trapped in the gas hydrates is to be replaced by CO2. In recent years, a large number of experimental and numerical simulations have been performed to understand the interaction between injected CO2 and the hydrate-bearing sediment. This webinar summarizes the main results and highlights the challenges and potential opportunities of the method. This webinar is categorized under the Projects, Facilities, and Construction technical discipline.

  • SPE Distinguished Lecture - Jaideva Goswami - Early Kick Detection

    Friday, March 22, 2024, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM NT
    PLEASE RSVP BELOW A kick or an influx may be defined as an unintended flow of formation fluid into the borehole. It occurs when the wellbore pressure falls below the formation pore pressure. Not all kicks are dangers; however, an uncontrolled kick can lead to catastrophic events. A reliable early kick detection and monitoring system is critical to maintaining wellbore stability. Typically, the gain in pit volume and change in flow rate serve as some of the primary kick indicators. Secondary indicators include borehole pressure, temperature, resistivity, mud properties, and cuttings. While the gain in pit volume can indicate the kick with higher reliability, the downhole measurements in conjunction with high-speed telemetry and advanced real-time processing algorithms can be an effective early warning system, enabling timely mitigation plans. This lecture begins with some basics of wellbore stability, kick indicators, and monitoring systems. Various downhole sensor measurements and their relevance to kick detection are discussed. Both experimental and field examples are presented to illustrate the methodology. Pressure data are analyzed to estimate change in density and correlate it with the type, location, and evolution of the influx along the wellbore. Some innovative ideas on sensor design and realtime data processing for event detection and uncertainty quantification are discussed. One key message from this lecture: Kicks can be catastrophic, but recent and future developments in sensor technology, data processing, and telemetry are enabling timely identification and mitigation plans.

  • Let's Challenge the Deepwater Well Design Paradigm with Casing Drilling

    Wednesday, April 24, 2024, 06:00 PM - 07:00 PM EET
    Deepwater well design has not really evolved in the last half-century. A major design deficiency is the shallow setting depth of the initial conductor casing not leveraging the increasing fracture gradient below the seafloor. The initial conductor setting depth is limited to about 400 feet below the seafloor due to the technical limitations of the jetting process. Jetting uses bit and mud motor technology without pipe rotation to “push” the conductor casing into the formation without pipe rotation which is insufficient for drilling harder sediment. The result is premature slimming of well architecture in the riserless interval leading to narrow drilling operating pressure windows deeper in the well. This deficiency in well design and inefficient mitigation of shallow hazards are reasons deepwater operators may fall short of their well construction objectives. This presentation makes the case for casing drilling as a viable replacement for jetting in the initial conductor. Unlike jetting, casing drilling is a more mechanically efficient drilling system not limited by mud motor output as it uses casing rotation to drill. Casing drilling is well-proven in land and shallow water operations for top-hole drilling efficiency, reducing flat times and mitigating hazard intervals in a single trip. This talk will discuss transitioning casing drilling to the deepwater riserless interval where it can be an enabling technology to deepen the initial conductor depth based on fracture gradient, a mitigant for shallow hazards, and a means of providing deepwater operators a more optimal well design for a successful outcome.

  • Biofuel's role in the low carbon landscape - Joint Event with IchemE

    Wednesday, May 8, 2024, 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM SGT
    Abstract: Biofuels can be a suitable alternative to fossil fuels as low-carbon fuels because they mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and the impact of climate change caused by transportation and power generation. For this purpose, industry has focused on increasing production and improving the efficiency of the production process of biofuels and Sustainable Aviation Fuel. The need for sustainable transportation fuels is a critical issue in all societies globally. Post Covid the need for personal F2F interaction and international travel has been reinforced. We can’t do without it. For ground transportation, electrification with batteries in EVs is growing rapidly. Though this has distance limitations. For long distance air transportation, the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel must grow as quickly as we can create it. However, this is neither easy nor cheap. SAF and Biofuels have both technical and ESG challenges. The key to the S-sustainability is the use of bio renewable and recycled feedstocks. These are in limited supply and have wide variability nationally and regionally. We don’t want to have another food vs fuel conflict, as we have seen in the past. What we need to determine is how best can we create the most sustainable and cost-effective ways of producing SAF and Biofuels? One of the tried and proven ways of determining how best to produce SAF & Biofuels, or any hydrocarbon fuel, is by utilising process simulation. To do this accurately each potential feedstock must be characterised, mathematically/digitally, so that the behaviour of each molecule, or groups of molecules, can be determined in a variety of process equipment. Simulation also offers a very effective way of tracking the Carbon Intensity of each molecule as it passes and changes through a process which can provide the CI audit trail of any fuel product. A critical step in certifying a fuel product’s greenness. Our obligation, as the SPE, is that we must address all aspects of creating this sustainable part of the cyclic economy. In turn we must communicate these to the regulatory authorities and to the public to create clear understanding of the technical and ESG issues. This is so that the most effective regulatory polices are put in place which most benefit society both today and create a cleaner environment in the future, for our children and grandchildren. This presentation will delve into some of the diverse feedstocks and the process synthesis routes for making SAF and Biofuels, addressing some of the issues around scalability and efficiency of these feedstocks. It will discuss process simulation technology which can be used to select economically viable and sustainable SAF and Bio Fuel production schemes, create and design new processes, optimise their operations, track CI, energy efficiency and minimise lifecycle cumulative emissions.

  • Carbon Capture and Storage and the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS)

    Monday, May 20, 2024, 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM SGT
    Rawdon Seager, Gaffney, Cline & Associates Abstract: After the lecture, members will understand the importance of carbon capture and storage in the transition to a lower carbon future, and know how to evaluate quantities consistently using the SRMS. As part of the international effort to combat global warming, significant attention is being given to ways to sequester (store for the long-term) carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect. It is therefore critical that there is a universal means to record the storable quantities by recognizing the maturity of the projects to be implemented and the confidence that can be placed in the estimated volumes to be sequestered. This talk will look at some of the ways in which carbon dioxide can be stored and provide a review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) framework prepared by the Society of Petroleum Engineers to classify and categorize the storable quantities. The talk will cover: • An overview of carbon capture, utilization and storage, including the role of greenhouse gasses in global warming • Discussion of typical modes of storage of carbon dioxide in saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas fields • Review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS), including principles and key definitions • Discussion of economics and evaluation methods • A hypothetical example Biography: Rawdon Seager is a reservoir engineer with over 50 years’ experience in the international oil and gas arena with Shell, Huffco and, since 1985, Gaffney, Cline & Associates, where he is Chief Reservoir Engineer and Global Director of Quality Assurance. He is currently ivolved in CCS studies and application of the SRMS. He has a BSc in Physics from Bristol University and an MSc in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College, London. Rawdon is past Chairman of the SPE Oil and Gas Reserves Committee and past member of the Board and current Chair of the Reserves Definitions Committee of the SPEE.

  • Application of Oil and Gas Subsurface Evaluation Methodology to Geothermal: The Value of Data

    Monday, June 3, 2024, 06:30 PM - 08:00 PM CET
    Dear SPE German Section Members, We are excited to invite you to an in-person event organized by the German Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, in cooperation with the RWTH Student Chapter. This event will provide a unique opportunity for networking, knowledge sharing, and professional development. Title : Application of Oil and Gas Subsurface Evaluation Methodology to Geothermal: The Value of Data Speaker : Tom Bradley, Baker Hughes Company Date : 3 June 2024 Time : 18:30 Location : RWTH Aachen Lochnerstraße 4-20 Haus B, Raum 504 52064 Aachen Tom Bradley , a renowned expert in the field, will be sharing valuable insights on how oil and gas subsurface evaluation methodologies can be applied to geothermal projects, highlighting the critical value of data in these processes. This is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge from an industry leader and connect with fellow professionals and students. Find the full abstract and CV below. Abstract : The energy landscape is changing: Renewables are gaining in importance as a dependable energy source now that the environmental impact of fossil fuels is understood, and recent geopolitical events have shown the risks of over-reliance on non-domestic energy sources. Heat is a major energy demand. Geothermal energy can be a key contributor as it can supply constant dependable heat for a wide range of uses, ranging from low temperature heating through mid temperature industrial uses, to high enthalpies for power generation. It has additional benefits, that unlike other renewables such as wind and solar, it has essentially no reliance on varying prevailing conditions. However, even with recent industry growth, and increasing awareness of the importance of subsurface knowledge for geothermal, many stakeholders are still unaware of it's value in project success. Therefore, many projects still disappoint. The knowledge required is very similar to that for successful hydrocarbon exploration. Therefore, the expertise gained in the hydrocarbon industries over many years can be applied to geothermal projects to help increase their likelihood of success. However, because of the nature of the two industries, there is often a barrier that needs to be broken down before this knowledge can be shared. In this presentation, I discuss the basics of geothermal, how the subsurface information needed for success is very similar to oil and gas, show the value of data, how established oil and gas methodologies can be applied to geothermal, and how the hydrocarbon industries can contribute to the success of geothermal projects. Biography : Tom Bradley is a Senior Global Petrophysical Advisor with Baker Hughes, specialising in open hole formation evaluation. After graduating from The Royal School of Mines, Imperial College, London with a degree in Geology with Engineering Geology in 1996, he started his career in 1997 with Western Atlas International. Since then he has worked for Baker Hughes globally in a variety of technical and supervisory roles. Since 2005 he has been based in the Netherlands, and as part of his current role he is advising multiple stakeholders in the development of geothermal energy in the Netherlands and Europe.

    Tuesday, June 11, 2024, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    Application of Hydraulic Port Collars in Two Stage Cementing Operations Reduces Rig Time and Drilling Cost in the Permian Basin presented by Tom O'Grady with TAM International Abstract Operators in the Permian Basin have been performing two stage cementing operations on their casing strings for decades utilizing conventional diverter tool technology, often in combination with casing annulus packers. Over time, issues with legacy diverter tools (DV) have been identified and solutions sought. These issues range from longer than desired time to drill-out the DV tool, reluctance to drill-out a DV tool with a directional assembly due to drill bit dulling and premature drilling motor/MWD failures, damage to the DV tool while drilling causing leaks and remediation and an inability to pressure test the whole casing string after cementing. A development effort was made to eliminate these issues. The Hydraulic Port Collar (HPC) was designed and extensive qualification/testing of the HPC design was performed prior to field deployment. Running procedures were written and revised in consultation with a variety of operators. Several wells were identified for field trials. The wells were selected based on the operator’s desire to eliminate a DV tool drill-out. The wells had complex directional plans that required high bend drilling motors resulting in the operator’s reluctance to drill-out conventional DV tools with the curve BHA’s. This presentation will review the results of the field trials and document efficiency gains up to 40% when compared to previous operations where legacy DV tools had been deployed. Biography Tom O’Grady currently works for TAM International based in Midland, TX.

    Innovative Relative Permeability Modifier, Free of Polymers, for Sustaining Optimal Water-Oil Ratios in Carbonate and Sandstone Formations Speaker: Ts. Jasvinder Singh , Weatherford For early RSVP, kindly contact SPE Vietnam Section Abstract: Reservoirs employ water management strategies to boost oil recovery and ensure proper water conformance, mitigating adverse effects. Traditional methods often falter in later stages when treatment efficacy diminishes and diagnosing water production sources becomes challenging. Early adoption of reservoir management strategies is crucial for curbing unwanted water production. In oil reservoirs, as pressure drops below the bubble point, oil releases organics like asphaltenes, which coat rocks, reducing porosity and rendering them oil-wet. This facilitates water breakthrough, prompting many past treatments to prematurely seal water-producing zones, abandoning potential oil reserves. Our goal is to offer reliable technology capable of cleansing carbonate reservoirs, aiming to reduce the Water Oil Ratio. Our innovative fluid system comprises stabilized chemicals suspended in a liquid phase, defying gravity and remaining dispersed within the carrier fluid. The system's properties—shape, size, material, and concentration—determine its efficacy for specific applications. Through core flood experiments, we evaluated its impact on residual oil/water saturation and assessed Water Oil Ratio to determine relative permeabilities. This non-damaging technology, temperature-independent and validated in over 200 wells across Latin America, showcases significant reductions in water production and Water Oil Ratio, alongside enhanced hydrocarbon output, without harming oil-producing zones. Speakers' Biography: Ts. Jasvinder Singh is Weatherford's Technical Sales for ASA GZ, specializing in the technical and business aspects of chemical solutions pertaining to well stimulation, production enhancement, water conformance and flow assurance. With a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Adelaide and a Master's in Petroleum Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, he started his career in 2012 as a chemical engineer, working on production enhancement and flow assurance projects in Southeast Asia. In 2020, he transitioned to sand management technical sales. Jasvinder has a strong track record in project execution, demonstrates leadership, and actively participates in SPE Kuala Lumpur events as a Technical & Technology Chairperson for 2024/2025 session. He's also a qualified ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 lead auditor with DNV authorization.

  • 41st Annual SPE BBQ Scholarship Fundraiser

    Friday, November 8, 2024, 06:00 PM - 10:00 PM AKT
    The Alaska Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is kicking off the 41st year of their Scholarship Program. These scholarships are awarded to Alaskan students pursuing professional technical degrees that lead to careers in the Alaska oil and gas industry. The Scholarship Program is funded by a long list of Alaskan companies and individuals that understand the value of developing Alaskan talent for this industry. The fundraising effort culminates in a social BBQ event, which will be held this year on Friday, November 8th at the Viking Hall in Anchorage. SPE Scholarship Program has awarded over $700,000 in scholarships to more than 400 high-performing high school and college students from Ketchikan to Nome pursuing degrees in engineering and earth sciences. Over the last 30+ years, our program has grown in statewide student awareness, quality of applicants and fundraising success. SPE is an international technical professional organization with the primary mission of technical education and information dissemination, community education and outreach on oil and gas related issues. The organization is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit that relies on member volunteer efforts to accomplish our mission, and fundraising efforts to support our numerous activities. Our primary source of funds for the Scholarship Program is this annual BBQ event, with the remainder raised through SPE-sponsored industry conferences, an annual golf tournament, and technical short courses. There are several ways to support the Scholarship Program BBQ event: cash donations are in greatest need as they directly fund the scholarships, while merchandise provides prizes for the silent auction and raffle. Our supporters are recognized as sponsors on our mailings, SPE website, in an ad placed in Petroleum News, and during the BBQ event. We believe that this is an excellent opportunity to assist in the education of our future leaders, while also gaining company recognition within the community. We hope that you will consider supporting us this year. If you can help, please fill out and return the attached form or feel free to contact us using the information below. We would also be honored to have sponsor representatives at the Scholarship BBQ Dinner event, which will be held at the Viking Hall, 8141 Briarwood St, on Friday, November 8, 2023. Social hour begins at 6:00 pm, BBQ at 6:30pm. Tickets to the event are $40.

  • January 2025 Meeting - DL Kyle Murray Recovering Valuable Elements from Subsurface Brines

    Thursday, January 16, 2025, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    2025 Kickoff Meeting! Please join us as we kick of 2025 with DL Dr. Kyle Murray who will be presenting " Pathway for Recovering Valuable Elements of Interest from Subsurface Brines and Oilfield Produced Waters ". In this presentation, Dr. Murray will assess how elements of interest (EOI) in produced waters and downhole brines might be recovered. He will review the current commodity markets, characterization of waters and wastes for EOI concentrations, and computation of gross values of EOI. Technologies that are best economically favorable for extraction of EOI will also be reviewed. This promises to be a topic of great interest as solutions to produced water disposal become more and more restricted. BIO Dr. Kyle E. Murray is the Principal Scientist of Murray GeoConsulting, LLC. He earned a Ph.D. in Geological Engineering from Colorado School of Mines and has worked on geoscience projects since 1995. Dr. Murray’s experience as a consultant or researcher is in hydrogeology, natural resources and GIS databases, water resources, induced seismicity, produced water management, and resource recovery. His current focus is to evaluate produced water from the oil and gas industry, characterize it for elements of interest (EOI), and pursue economically viable alternatives to recovering critical minerals and other EOI from produced water, other waters, and wastes.

  • March 2025 Meeting - DL Dr. Leen Weijers - Making Unconventionals Competitive

    Thursday, March 20, 2025, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CST
    Wondering how to make your unconventional well competitive? Come join us at our March meeting when DL Dr. Leen Weijers will present " Making Unconventionals Competitive – Minimizing the Cost per Barrel Oil ".In this presentation Dr. Weijers will show how cost of drilling and completion has been cut in about half for shale wells over the last decade through efficiency gains and innovations in workflow. He will also look at how well production has roughly doubled through a focus to increase both the extent and intensity of the created hydraulic fracture system. The key take-away from this presentation is that our industry is capable of wide-ranging and rapid innovation when free market forces are unleashed to produce the cheapest barrel possible. BIO Dr. Leen Weijers is VP of Engineering at Liberty Oilfield Services and served as its Business Manager at Liberty’s founding. Leen worked at Pinnacle Technologies from 1995 to 2011, where he oversaw development of a commercial fracture growth simulator, FracproPT. Leen has authored dozens of publications and contributed a chapter to the recent SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Monograph. Leen completed his doctoral research at the Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
