  • Projeto SOMAR

    Saturday, October 2, 2021 - Saturday, December 31, 2022
    O antigo Projeto Social Pequeninos deu a vez ao Projeto SOMAR  da cidade de Manaus-AM. Pequeninos trabalhou realizando ações em datas comemorativas como Páscoa, dia das mães, dia dos pais, dia das crianças. Natal, além de visitas à abrigos de crianças; Este foi o foco do proejto: crianças. Em dezembro de 2020, a necessidade do Pequeninos era de expandir, mudar a visão do doar, de crescer e atender novas ideias. Foi então que, após o Pequeninos fazer seus 10 anos desde a sua criação, deu a vez ao nome para Projeto Social SOMAR. O SOMAR é composto por um grupo de amigos, todos voluntários, coordenado por Ítalo Malveira. Atualmente o direcionamento do projeto está em crianças, pessoas em situação de rua e famílias carentes.

  • BEHIND CASING GAS SATURATION DETERMINATION WITH PNL IN GAS-FILLED BOREHOLES & HIGH TEMP FORMATION

    Thursday, January 13, 2022, 07:00 PM - 08:00 PM ICT
    In conjunction with SPE Vietnam Section, SPE Singapore Section is happy to invite you to a technical seminar : “BEHIND CASING GAS SATURATION DETERMINATION WITH PNL IN GAS-FILLED BOREHOLES AND HIGH TEMPERATURE FORMATIONS - FIRST APPLICATION OFFSHORE VIETNAM ”   The lecture will be delivered in live by Kim Nguyen Pham Thien & Dr. Son Hoang. Date: Thursday, Jan 13, 2022 Time: 8 pm (Singapore time) Meeting link will be provided after registration.   Abstract: Managing mature fields efficiently requires continuous monitoring of the changes in formation fluid saturation. Gas inside boreholes is usually the most challenging condition for logging, where gas measurements are hampered by the lack of a fluid column. Thanks to the improved technology, a new generation of pulsed neutron logging (PNL) tools was introduced that greatly reduces the evaluation uncertainty and delivers more reliable gas saturation. The new PNL tools maintain high-resolution up to 175°C and provide a new formation property – fast neutron cross-section – an independent method to quantify gas saturation. The tool also counts with a new self-compensation algorithm for formation sigma and hydrogen index measurements that allow the accurate evaluation for a wide range of logging conditions. These features altogether provide much more reliable hydrocarbon saturation in such a tough environment. The new PNL tool was put in operation in several wells in clastic gas-condensate field A, Nam Con Son basin. These wells recently experienced high-water production. The Gas Water Contact (GWC) movement estimation and the water production forecast are challenging due to the complex structure of the reservoirs and the uncertain size and strength of the aquifers. Additionally, high formation temperature and gas-filled boreholes limited the use of previous-generation of PNL tools. The new PNL tool with the outstanding self-compensating algorithm was precisely fit to handle these problems. The tool successfully determined the current fluid contact and quantified the remaining gas saturation in the reservoirs. This gave the operator a better understanding of the reservoirs and enabled better reservoir management strategy.   Biography:   Kim Nguyen Pham Thien is currently working in Schlumberger’s Analysis and Interpretation business as Petrophysicist, supporting both Wireline and Drilling and Measurements (D&M) activities. Her focal area is formation evaluation in open holes/ cased holes and development of acoustics answer products. Her working experience embraces both clastic and carbonate reservoirs located across Southeast Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East… Kim holds a BEng from HCMUT in Geology and Petroleum. She is a member of SPE with some SPE joint publications with clients. Dr. Son Hoang is the lead reservoir engineer at BIENDONG POC. He supervises reservoir engineering, geomechanics-related works, and the application of machine learning and data science in subsurface works at BIENDONG POC. He holds a B.S. in mechanical engineering and a Ph.D. in civil engineering, both from the University of Oklahoma. Before joining BIENDONG POC, he worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at the PoroMechanics Institute, University of Oklahoma.

  • Making Better Upstream Acquisitions - The Role of the Petroleum Engineer and Why It's Different from

    Thursday, January 20, 2022, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM ICT
    We hope you can join us, and make the most of SPE Distinguished Lecturer– Geoff Salter virtual visit with our section. The event is live! A recording will NOT be available if you miss it. Don’t miss this LIVE SPE Virtual Distinguished Lecturer.   Making Better Upstream Acquisitions The Role of the Petroleum Engineer and Why It's Different from the Day Job Vietnam Section Thursday, 20 th January 2022 02:00 PM (GMT+7) Register HERE   Abstract: Global upstream transactions are estimated at $150 bn in 2019. Production/cost forecasts and assessment of future opportunities/risks are crucial inputs to the economic evaluation of a potential acquisition. It follows that potential buyers need to conduct technical due diligence on these inputs. In times of volatile oil and gas prices, good technical due diligence can be the difference between a good and a bad deal. Petroleum engineers are often called upon to join acquisition teams. With typically a few days/weeks of evaluation time, technical due diligence requires considerable focus and a fundamentally different approach to the typical industry workflow. Yet, there are no industry courses on this subject and a OnePetro search reveals the last paper was 30 years ago. This talk highlights how a Petroleum Engineer should approach working in an upstream acquisitions team and illustrates practical methods for conducting technical due diligence. A 'top down' process that starts with identifying what drives value is proposed. Several case studies are presented showing how good technical due diligence has had a fundamental impact on acquisition decisions. The key thing I would like people to take away is that technical due diligence requires a very different approach from the Petroleum Engineer's 'day job'.   Biography: Geoff Salter is a Partner at RISC Advisory specializing in Reservoir Engineering. He holds an MSc in Petroleum Engineering. His early industry experience was focused on field development and production operations with major operators Shell and Woodside. During his nearly 25 years at RISC Advisory based in London or Perth, he has led technical due diligence teams on oil and gas acquisition opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Middle East and Africa. He has travelled extensively throughout these regions, presented at industry conferences and participated in SPE ATWs.   An Extra 45 Minutes Can Provide a World of Knowledge!

  • Global LNG - An Industry in Disruptive Transformation

    Friday, February 18, 2022, 06:00 PM - 07:00 PM ICT
    Global LNG - An Industry in Disruptive Transformation by Peter Cameron, Energy Markets Global Limited, UK Abstract: The global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry is going through disruptive transformation. This term is often heard but one we can now see applied to a large capital intensive industry. For decades, the LNG business had been traditional, cosy, conservative and uncompetitive, with a few large players, opaque and rigid.  We consider the drivers that make an industry change, particularly an energy industry and the characteristics of energy markets. We find that LNG meets the criteria of an industry ready for change. Three key factors drive transformation, namely an industry wide crisis, action to enable the business environment and then the market developing by itself.  Drivers for LNG change include technological (FSRU, FLNG, supersized ships, Mini-LNG, bunkering) and commercial (global LNG oversupply, regulatory, new demand and supply centres, new business models, new players, new trading patterns). Any of these can provide an industry crisis but among the most important is the entry of the USA, set to become the world’s marginal LNG supplier (which sets the price) and also largest supplier, with different business models. The combined effects are transformational.  Change is continuing, with the growing influence of the USA, LNG hubs, bunkering and mini LNG. The sleepy traditional LNG world is changing and will continue to do so. Coronavirus has a large impact but the LNG world was already transforming. Members should consider what further disruption will come. They should also identify additional value in gas from previously stranded supplies and demand which can now be opened up.  Biography: Mr Peter Cameron is Founder and Managing Director of Energy Markets Global, a UK based international energy markets consultancy. He is also lecturer in Business Strategy for Middlesex University (UK) Oil and Gas MBA. Peter advises governments and companies globally on the economic and commercial aspects of gas markets. He has over 25 years of worldwide project experience (long and short term). He was Chairman of the International Services Board of the Society of British Gas Industries and represented the British Government on the gas sector worldwide. Previously, Peter was Corporate Strategist and Planner for British Gas (now Shell).

  • WEBINAR: Aplicación de la Inteligencia Artificial Aguas Arriba de la Industria Petrolera

    Thursday, April 7, 2022, 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM VET
    ¿Has aplicado la Inteligencia Artificial a procesos de flujo multifásico? La optimización de la producción en pozos de líquido y de gas requiere determinar los caudales de ambas fases a través del estrangulador (choke) en los cabezales de pozo. Esto es esencial para monitorear la producción de estos yacimientos. Por ejemplo, el flujo de líquido no es lineal, lo que hace que las correlaciones no sean del todo confiables cuando se les aplica en pozos de yacimientos de diferentes condiciones. Esto, favorece el uso de tecnologías como la IA, a través de algoritmos de “aprendizaje automático” (Machine Learning). Avances recientes en algoritmos de “aprendizaje profundo” (Deep Learning), hacen de éstos herramientas útiles para predecir las tasas de flujo a través de estranguladores, y para determinar los patrones de flujo que se observan en el flujo bifásico en tuberías (líneas de flujo o sistemas de recolección), donde el cálculo de la pérdida de presión es importante. En esta presentación nos concentraremos en los casos del flujo a través de un estrangulador y los patrones de flujo en las líneas de flujo/sistemas de recolección, considerando que toda solución debe ser integral en todo el sistema de producción. ¿Quién es nuestro ponente? Emilio Guevara Millán, Ing. Mecánico de la UCV (1972), con MSc. y doctorado en Ing. Mecánica en la especialidad de Flujo Multifásico en The City University de Londres (1981). Laboró en PDVSA, ocupando posiciones de Jefe de Unidad de Transporte de CP/XP y de Sección de Manejo de Fluidos. En Intevep, se desempeñó como Superintendente de Instalaciones de Superficie en la Gerencia de Tecnología de Producción. En la ex filial Maraven (LL) ocupó el cargo de Gerente de Tecnología de Producción y luego, en PDVSA, formó parte del Centro de Excelencia de Producción, ubicado en Caracas. Fue representante de PDVSA en el TUFFP de Tulsa, USA y Miembro del Corresponding Committe, Multiphase Flow Production Conference del Bhr Group. Ha ejercido en varios países, entre éstos: Venezuela, México, Argentina, Ecuador y Colombia. En los últimos 4 años, ha estado utilizando la IA en los procesos aguas arriba. Actualmente, forma parte de la empresa Opica Consultores, C.A., de la cual es cofundador, desempeñándose como Consultor en Instalaciones y Procesos de Superficie. #ManagementandInformation

    Join us, and make the most of  SPE  Distinguished Lecturer–Ian Phillips visit with our section. SPE  Distinguished Lecturers  are industry experts and outstanding speakers, nominated by their peers, to share their knowledge and expertise on the latest industry trends and technologies with  SPE  members throughout the world through visits to local sections.  Nairobi Section 13th April 2022 Strathmore Business School 10 am - 12 noon Charges: KSH500/= Professionals, KSH200/= Students 📌Registration Link:  https://lnkd.in/da9wAdsg     This presentation considers the future of the oil and gas industry from two perspectives. The first half paints a picture of an industry in extremely good health and with an exciting future - global population continues to grow and individuals' standard of living continues to rise - so demand for energy is growing steadily. Despite this growing demand, global proven reserves have risen as technology improves. In addition, we know where there is a lot more oil and gas in deposits that are currently uneconomic, but a small increase in the oil price would make these "proven reserves." In a nutshell, the industry might have a bright future.   The second half presents the significant obstacle: summarizing the science of climate change and considering what happened when the temperature rose this high in the past. The emerging alternatives, renewables, energy efficiency, and some dramatic scientific advances in "clean hydrocarbons," will also be reviewed.  The presentation closes with an assessment of the impact of these competing forces on the oil and gas industry, the developed world, and the human race.

The holistic work approach resulted in the development of West Barracouta Top Latrobe gas by two dual-zone, subsea intelligent wells with sand control, tied back to an operating pipeline to minimise brownfields interface. Located in the Gippsland Basin, the Barracouta gas field was Australia’s first discovery, by the first offshore well, and soon after the first operating offshore facility. After more than 50 years of oil and gas production, new data gives further insight to support continuous improvement in reservoir management to optimise the resource to end of field life. Originally discovered in 1969, West Barracouta is separated from the main field by a fault induced saddle point that left a substantial volume without an active completion. With the Gippsland legacy gas fields declining, the West Barracouta development is well timed to supply the Australian East Coast gas market with one of the last remaining low CO2 gas sources and ensure additional security of supply. Incorporating reprocessed seismic data into the workflow delivered improved confidence in field definition, providing a foundation for a technology-driven development plan. This paper addresses the technical workflow that was implemented to support a fast-paced subsea development, robust against the range of possible geological scenarios.  Biography: Daniel joined ExxonMobil in 2018 and works as a Reservoir Engineer in the Australian Reservoir and Development Planning team. Daniel studied Petroleum and Chemical Engineering, graduating from The University of Adelaide in 2009. He is an active committee member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) with 12 years’ experience in onshore & offshore production, field development planning, reserves assessment and reservoir simulation. Prior to joining ExxonMobil, Daniel worked in various Reservoir Engineering roles for Woodside Energy and Lochard Energy.

  • WEBINAR DL: Unlocking Unconventional Reservoirs using Magnetic Resonance as the Key

    Thursday, September 22, 2022, 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM VET
    ¿Cuánto sabes sobre Desbloqueo de Yacimientos No Convencionales usando la Resonancia Magnética como la clave?... Los yacimientos no convencionales comprenden un segmento importante de la exploración global de campos petroleros, su desarrollo y producción. Un gran desafío para la Industria Petrolera es cuantificar el volumen o porosidad del yacimiento, donde el tamaño de poro es dramáticamente más pequeño que el de yacimientos convencionales. La estimación correcta del volumen del yacimiento puede determinar la economía de un campo no convencional. El mito inicial de la uniformidad en estos yacimientos de roca generadora ha evolucionado para entender cuán diferentes son realmente estos depósitos. Algunas de las principales diferencias incluyen la madurez térmica, la composición mineral y la cantidad de kerógeno presente. El registro de resonancia magnética y el análisis T1T2 se han convertido en una "revolución en resolución" para la evaluación de la formación de yacimientos no convencionales por varias razones. La presentación describe los principios de medición, la metodología de evaluación de la formación y aplicaciones de Resonancia Magnética para los retos de Yacimientos No Convencionales. Se introducen conceptos de evaluación para nuevas formaciones y para obtener y cuantificar los volúmenes de los fluidos de estos yacimientos. Se utiliza una variedad de estudios de casos globales para demostrar las diferencias en la fuente de yacimientos rocosos, sus desafíos y soluciones propuestas. El mensaje principal es proporcionar una  nueva perspectiva que está adoptando la industria para la evaluación de formaciones en No Convencional. ¿Quién es nuestro DL? Ron Balliet, es el experto a nivel mundial de productos Halliburton para resonancia magnética. Asesora la evaluación de formaciones y operaciones para las líneas de productos de Wireline & Perforating y Sperry Drilling. Durante su experiencia de 33 años, ha laborado en resonancia magnética de yacimientos petrolíferos en varios lugares del mundo. Ha estado involucrado en el diseño e interpretación de métodos para siete sensores de resonancia magnética para Wireline y LWD, incluyendo aplicaciones para yacimientos no convencionales. Ha publicado veinte artículos técnicos, siete relacionados con patentes RMN y ha sido miembro de la SPE durante 23 años.   Posee BS en Geofísica y Geología. #ReservoirDescriptionandDynamics

During periods of stability within a given industry, founders face the normal stresses that come from building a startup: a lack of resources, having to serve in multiple functional roles, powerful customers, unclear business model, loneliness, stress to personal finances, and more. During periods of substantial upheaval, as the oil and gas industry is facing today, the challenges – and the rewards – can be even greater. This lecture will equip attendees with a thorough understanding of how to build a successful entrepreneurial venture during this time of energy transition. Core universal concepts applicable to creating a successful startup will be presented, while industry-specific trends will be explored to highlight areas that are ripe for innovation. At the end of the lecture, attendees should have a grounding in how to approach building a successful startup during this period of intense transition in the oilfield.   Biography:   Omar Abou-Sayed's experience spans the global energy, chemicals, oilfield services, and clean tech industries. He has worked in a variety of engineering, business, and leadership roles within SuperMajors, management consulting firms, private equity funds, and venture-backed startups. He currently serves as CEO of Advantek Waste Management Services, a private equity-backed industrial waste management company. He advises or has invested in nearly a dozen early-stage companies and venture funds. Omar holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

  • Peter Godfrey, perspectives on CCS projects -in person dinner and technical lecture.

    Thursday, October 20, 2022, 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM MY
    Peter Godfrey Vice President Asia Pacific,  STOREGGA   Based in Singapore, Peter is the regional representative of Storegga, a UK headquartered company established in 2019 with the sole purpose of acting as an independent champion for the development of carbon capture projects and related decarbonisation technologies. Storegga is the lead developer of the Acorn project in Scotland in partnership with Shell and Harbour Energy, one of the leading UK CCS and hydrogen projects. Storegga’s business interests are rapidly expanding in internationally.   In addition to his Storegga role, Peter is also the Managing Director APAC of the prestigious Energy Institute (EI).  The EI is the UK chartered professional membership body working across the world of energy with a focus of creating a better energy future for its members and society by accelerating a just global energy transition to net zero.   Peter has spent most of his career in the oil and gas industry but is now a strong advocate for the energy sector’s need to transition towards a cleaner, greener future. In recent years, Peter has worked as an independent advisor, consultant and executive coach to a number of organisations and governments agencies on issues related to the energy sector development within the context of the energy transition and decarbonisation and their strategic implications.    Abstract: A report published last month (in September 2022)   highlighted that the 13 flagship existing CCS schemes worldwide, which together   represent 55 per cent of captured CO2 have mostly significantly underperformed. Across their lifetime, the report states that ExxonMobil’s LaBarge facility at Shute Creek in Wyoming has underperformed by around 36 per cent in terms of capacity. The world’s only large power station with CCS, Boundary Dam in Saskatchewan, Canada, has captured about 50 per cent less than planned, according to the report, and the capacity of Chevron’s Gorgon gas scheme in Western Australia has been about 50 per cent lower than planned in its first five years.  Two projects included in the report failed completely, including the Kemper coal CCS project in Mississippi, which was long delayed and construction was eventually abandoned in 2017. On a more positive note, the report finds the Sleipner and Snøhvit CCS projects in Norway have been a success, which it says is largely due to the “country’s unique business and regulatory environment”. Some say that CCS projects, more often than not, never actually work to its design capacity others (including the presenter) firmly believe that performance has largely been driven by the fundamental conflict between optimising carbon storage capacity and utilising carbon capture as a means of increasing core business activity, in particular, oil and gas production. CCS technology dates back to the 1970s, and in most cases has been used to extract more oil and gas from reservoirs rather than focused on curbing climate change by capturing CO2 for the long term. “For CCS projects to play their part in decarbonisation, project development needs to be commercially justified on the basis of the carbon value chain alone if they are to become a successful tool in our global decarbonisation toolbox”. The presenter will aim to present his case utilising the lessons leaned from his company, STOREGGA, whose business model is entirely focused on decarbonisation. Storegga is the lead developer of the Acorn project in NE Scotland and is actively developing a global portfolio of CCS project development opportunities,  including here in SE Asia. Dinner and networking starts at 6pm.  Lecture begins at 7pm.  Event closes at 9pm.  Soft drinks, Alcoholic drinks and meal included in price - Members of EI, SICC and SPE are $50, Non members $75 and students $25.

  • Virtual DL: How Do CEOs Lead for Success? Insights to Boost Your Leadership Skills - ONLINE NOV

    Wednesday, November 9, 2022, 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM SGT
    SPE Singapore Section is happy to invite you to Live Distinguished Lecturer Event:   “How Do CEOs Lead for Success? Insights to Boost Your Leadership Skills ”   The lecture will be delivered in live by Elizabeth Coffey. Date: Wednesday, Nov 9, 2022 Time: 5PM ONLINE FRI NOV 9 (Original timing was incorrect)   To attend the event you are requested to register via a following link:  REGISTRATION After registration is complete, you will receive a personal link to your mailbox to log in.    Kindly be aware that only SPE members will be able to access a registration web page. You can join/renew SPE membership  here .    Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more or ask your questions.   Abstract: What actions do CEOs take behind the scenes to create success? What can go wrong that leads to CEO failure? How long do most CEOs have in post? What skills do they need to create high performance? What can you learn from these insights to accelerate your leadership journey, regardless of your current point? You'll hear behind-the-scenes stories and practical guidance grounded in 25 years of collaborating with energy CEOs. We look at what CEOs actually DO. During a CEO’s tenure, a leader focuses on 3 activities: destroying aspects of the inherited organization that don’t work, creating new elements to improve performance, and preserving aspects that work well. Ideally, the leader delivers these empathetically. We consider the (often brief) life cycle of the CEO. Upon entry, the CEO plans a strategic path for the business. Next, the CEO disrupts the status quo by operationalizing those ambitions. Third, a CEO tries to stabilize the organization to establish a positive legacy. What are the upsides of this high wire act? Company growth plus status, wealth, and power for the CEO. If a high-visibility CEO fails, it can devastate the organization's valuation and the individual's reputation. Which core skills do CEOs need? We look beyond the myths to explore real examples from the oil and gas industry to reveal the most important 4 skills for CEO success. Which skills are crucial for you to achieve your own career peak? We highlight the critical few skills that sign-post the way to your leadership achievement.   Biography:   Elizabeth Coffey, Founder of Spark Leadership, is an internationally recognised consultant, speaker and author who develops CEOs, CEO Successors and Board Executives of FTSE 100 and Global 500 companies.

  • Entrepeneurship in the Transitioning Oilfield: Starting and Building a Great Company during Tumultuo

    Wednesday, December 7, 2022, 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM CET
    Entrepeneurship in the Transitioning Oilfield: Starting and Building a Great Company during Tumultuous Times By Distringuished Lecturer Omar Abou-Sayed Abstract: Building an entrepreneurial venture is a challenge underestimated by most founders. During periods of stability within a given industry, founders face the normal stresses that come from building a startup: a lack of resources, having to serve in multiple functional roles, powerful customers, unclear business model, loneliness, stress to personal finances, and more. During periods of substantial upheaval, as the oil and gas industry is facing today, the challenges – and the rewards – can be even greater. This lecture will equip attendees with a thorough understanding of how to build a successful entrepreneurial venture during this time of energy transition. Core universal concepts applicable to creating a successful startup will be presented, while industry-specific trends will be explored to highlight areas that are ripe for innovation. At the end of the lecture, attendees should have a grounding in how to approach building a successful startup during this period of intense transition in the oilfield. Biography: Omar Abou-Sayed's experience spans the global energy, chemicals, oilfield services, and clean tech industries. He has worked in a variety of engineering, business, and leadership roles within SuperMajors, management consulting firms, private equity funds, and venture-backed startups. He currently serves as CEO of Advantek Waste Management Services, a private equity-backed industrial waste management company. He advises or has invested in nearly a dozen early-stage companies and venture funds. Omar holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

  • December General Section Meeting - Matrix Flow Cyclic Steam Injection in the Diatomite Zone, Orcutt

    Thursday, December 8, 2022, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM PT
    The SPE San Joaquin Valley Section Invites you to attend a General Meeting in Bakersfield, California, featuring our guest speaker, Ramon Elias from Santa Maria Energy.   Topic:                  Are You Steam “Fracking” the Diatomite? Matrix Flow Cyclic Steam Injection in the Diatomite Zone, Orcutt Field Santa Barbara County, California Abstract:                Discussed is the continued success seen with steam injection tracking and monitoring using modified Hall plots and their derivatives proposed in 2013. Matrix flow in the diatomite is confirmed using industry accepted analytical calculations for determining a host of parameters including steam zone flow capacity (kh), steam injection rates that avoid formation parting, and the zone of endangering influence (ZEI) needed for UIC approvals. Evidence of pore dilation and unavoidable skin effects are cited. Modified Hall plots provide an alternative method for determining the formation parting flow rate (FPR) in lieu of the formation parting pressure (FPP). Fundamentally, step-rate tests are not reliable (SPE 169513-MS) for determining the FPP. An actual CSS well case history is used. The study shows there to be a wide range of diatomite steam zone injection conditions that do not cause parting or fracturing of the diatomite by steam injection. Real-time Hall plots also provide valuable insights as to how injection zone properties change as the project matures. The project monitoring protocols originally described in a 2013 paper continue to be used with safe and reliable outcomes confirmed by thousands of successful project CSS injection operations.  Speaker Bio:           Ray Elias is a California resident, engineer, scientist, inventor, and area business owner. His career spans over 49 years in energy and business both in the U.S. and abroad. His career started with Getty Oil Company in Bakersfield. His work experience spans field operations, research, process design, reservoir computer simulation, EOR, consulting, and management.

  • SPE DL - Paul Pastusek - Drill Rig Control Systems: Detecting Auto Driller Dysfunction and Improving

    Friday, December 9, 2022, 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM CET
    Register via RSVP Button below! Drill rig control systems are often not as well tuned nor as well behaved as expected. There can be substantial interaction between systems that is not recognized and is attributed to ‘difficult drilling’. This may only become obvious when supervisory control automation systems are added on top of the existing controllers. This lecture shares some of the key findings on detecting, modeling, and correcting these issues, with particular attention on integrating drill string models with auto drillers, top drives, and active torsional damping systems. An unstable auto driller controller may induce stick-slip and lead to inefficient drilling and bottom hole assembly damage. The torque limits set in the auto driller, top drive, and automation systems can also interact in ways that confound attempts to eliminate control instability. In general this interaction between controllers is not well understood by the industry and may not be recognized as a separate excitation mechanism for stick slip. Current best practices are shared to minimize the interaction of these three systems, but this is still an active area of discovery. Simulation and rig trials have shown that this dysfunctional behavior can be mitigated by appropriate adjustments to the control system. Multiple systems have been designed that make these adjustments automatically and are now being deployed. In general, all control systems, not just drill rigs, can and should be modeled, monitored, and tuned to get the best performance of the system with unconditionally stable performance.

  • Rigs as Reefs: Re-imagining Our Energy Past as our Eco-Friendly Future - Emily Hazelwood

    Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    The Evangeline Section of SPE is hosting our December Monthly Meeting: “ Rigs as Reefs:  Re-imagining Our Energy Past as our Eco-Friendly Future ”     Emily Hazelwood,  Blue Latitudes   SPE Distinguished Lecturers  are industry experts and outstanding speakers, nominated by their peers, to share their knowledge and expertise on the latest industry trends and technologies with SPE members throughout the world through visits to local sections.   December 13, 2022      Noon – 1 PM CST     11:30 AM  Lunch served      Petroleum Club of Lafayette -  111 Heymann Blvd, Lafayette, LA       Abstract Increasingly, the world’s offshore oil and gas platforms are transitioning into aging relics, leftover designs from an era in hot pursuit of developing and extracting the world’s offshore oil reserves, with little thought given to their eventual removal. However, as the global economy has begun to shift away from traditional energy resources (i.e., oil and gas) towards renewables (i.e., wind, wave, and solar energy), the removal of many offshore structures has become inevitable, and the technical, economic, and environmental implications associated with their decommissioning must now be addressed. Many of these platforms are home to some of the most productive ecosystems on the planet, making decommissioning via complete removal and onshore disposal environmentally detrimental, and needlessly expensive. Repurposing an object, which was once environmentally taxing, into something sustainable and environmentally friendly is inherently fresh, and perhaps most critically, timely. This lecture will shed light on how scientists, operators and regulators are beginning to think creatively about our ocean resources, and radically changing the way society views ocean conservation. By examining several case studies, ranging from traditional fixed platforms to floating facilities to subsea infrastructure in the super deep sea, this lecture will demonstrate the ecological, social, and economic benefits of repurposing oil and gas infrastructure as marine habitats. Ultimately, this lecture will demonstrate to members how implementing Rigs to Reef programs globally provides not only a viable alternative to traditional decommissioning but also a replicable, scalable and significantly more commercially viable solution which can catalyze sustainable ocean resource development.        Biography                                               Emily Hazelwood is a marine conservation biologist and co-founder of Blue Latitudes, a women-owned marine environmental consulting firm , where she works to unite science , policy, and innovative technology to solve the complex ecological challenges associated with re-purposing offshore oil and gas platforms as artificial reefs through the Rigs to Reefs program. She has a B.A. in Environmental Science from Connecticut College and an M.A.S in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. In 2018, Emily was recognized on the Forbes 30 Under 30 (entrepreneurs) list for her work developing sustainable, creative, and cost-effective solutions for the offshore energy industry.

  • December 2022 - SPE Distinguished Lecturer - Simon J. Sparke

    Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MT
    ‘Well integrity in the Operate phase of the well lifecycle – our roll as crime scene detectives' Simon J. Sparke International Well Integrity Ltd. Abstract:  My takeaway ONE idea - ''Having a well Well integrity problem is not a sin, but doing nothing about it is!''. Globally, there are over two millions wells, and it is well documented that at least 40% have mechanical problems that require risk assessment and mitigation. Many of these wells are old and close to de-commissioning but day to day management remains a key issue. This dynamic presentation shows and documents how over time, key industry events have impacted the well construction and management process of our well stock. Changes are partly driven by regulations in one part of the world and utilized by other regions as best practices. Technical advances in engineering and sciences also create change by providing greater access to well data and well operational status. Finally, software such as Well Integrity Management Systems (WIMS) has brought about an awareness of the wells status and how it can be better managed particularly as part of the ageing process. Well integrity is an exciting discipline that embraces a wide range of subjects and skills. Like crime scene investigation, the evidence is provided - it’s a case of reviewing and understanding the data, that ultimately leads you and the team to making a decision on the best way to manage your well(s) Biography: Simon began his career in 1978 working for Schlumberger in the Middle East. Over the next 25 years he worked globally for a variety of service providers and Operators in various field and office based roles both onshore and offshore as an Operations Engineer. Gaining a masters degree in 2005 he moved into Operations Management for a major independent operator and built his first well integrity management system, publishing SPE MS-142449,  'Seven Pillars of Well Integrity' which identified, which established the key seven system ingredients for well integrity, Considerable experience and knowledge was gained as a co-author of ISO Well Integrity Standard 16530-1. Now, as an independent contractor, he authors key operations related documents for a wide range of clients,  building well integrity management systems and providing training schools in many countries and languages for all types of wells.   Simon is an active member of the SPE, and is working on various committees to promote well integrity awareness on a global basis. Event details: This is scheduled to be an online event, the SPE Distinguished Lecturer will be providing his presentation remotely. This event is being held in collaboration with the four other SPE Sections. -Event will be free for both SPE members and Non-SPE members. -Registration will be required via e-mail by December 9, 2022. -E-mail javad.hashemi@cenovus.com to RSVP for the event.

  • Virtual Meeting - Distinguished Lecturer Arash Taleghani, On Repurposing Oil and Gas Wells to Geothe

    Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM PT
    Abstract:               The number of abandoned oil and gas wells are growing over millions, significant costs are imposed to companies and government for decommissioning these wells. However, it would be very encouraging for the oil and gas industry to take advantage of these wells and use them as a source of geothermal energy. Huge upfront costs have always been a major obstacle for the development of geothermal energy. As a rule of thumb, a quarter of the costs for harvesting geothermal energy is going toward drilling and one third of the costs is spent for completions. One obvious solution is avoiding these costs by repurposing existing oil and gas wells to generate geothermal power at the end of their economic production life. In some regions of extensive hydrocarbon explorations, the geothermal gradient can be very steep, providing potential well candidates for conversion. Taking into consideration the local energy demand, potential market, existing infrastructure, and technical challenges, a conversion strategy for the existing wells is discussed specially in terms of the wellbore integrity requirement and steps to ensure hydrocarbon containment during the heat extraction process. Potential challenges in inspection and preparation of these wells in terms of well integrity and productivity with possible remedies will be discussed in this presentation. Speaker Bio:          Dr. Arash Dahi Taleghani is a tenured associate professor of petroleum engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Before joining Penn State, he was an associate professor of Petroleum Engineering at Louisiana State University. He earned his Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He has about 12 years combined experience in applied engineering, research and in academia and is a registered professional engineer.  Dr. Dahi Taleghani is the associate editor of ASME journal of Energy Resources and Technology and has numerous publications and six patent applications in the field of drilling and completion. In 2014, he received the Distinguished Achievement Award for Petroleum Engineering Faculty from the Society of Petroleum Engineering (SPE). He has also received SPE Eastern North America Regional Completion Optimization and Technology in 2017. He is currently conducting research in reservoir geomechanics, hydraulic fracturing, wellbore integrity, and geothermal energy.

    Effective Pipe Centralization is Critical to Total Depth and Well Integrity         Mike Moffitt Ace Oil Tools AS     Abstract:   Effective centralization in well construction both achieves total depth and delivers the best possible cement sheath to optimize zonal isolation.  Achieving planned shoe depth reduces risk to best deliver the anticipated return on investment.  The best possible cement sheath delivers a long-term barrier to prevent fluid migration to surface beyond the useful life of the well, satisfying local regulatory and environmental constraints.  Unfortunately, centralization strategies to best achieve these two objectives may be diametrically opposed.  Choosing the right casing hardware along with a well-planned centralization program helps resolve this conflict.   This presentation discusses the rationale behind centralizer choice and placement to enhance reaching total depth and to deliver cement integrity over the life of the well. It also breaks common centralization myths, presents case histories where good centralization has helped reach planned shoe depths and includes a case where poor centralization led to compromised well integrity.   ONE IDEA:  A well-planned and executed centralization program helps achieve total depth and provides an effective barrier both during and beyond the productive life of the well to satisfy local regulatory and environmental constraints.   Biography:    Mike Moffitt currently manages the Western Hemisphere for  Ace Oil Tools.  He has over 20 years’ service company experience in the drilling industry.  He began his well construction career in liner systems and his expertise includes conventional liners, casing hardware and Casing & Liner Drilling Systems. Mr. Moffitt has written numerous papers and trade magazine articles and is listed as inventor or co-inventor on fifteen patents relating to liner drilling and cementing technologies.  He received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University.

  • Methane Emissions: Our Obligation and Our Opportunity in the Energy Transition

    Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM CET
    About the Presentation The world has entered an energy transition where the future role of energy sources will depend partially on their greenhouse gas footprint.  While that transition is expected to take a generation, some changes will occur quickly.  One of the fastest ways to combat climate change is to reduce emissions of methane, not carbon dioxide.  Methane is the main component of natural gas and a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.  The oil and gas industry handles a large quantity of methane, and a small amount of that methane leaks to the atmosphere.  Because methane is such a potent greenhouse gas, those emissions are small in volume but large in environmental impact: methane is the dominant source of our industry’s direct greenhouse gas emissions, above other sources like flaring.  This lecture describes the main sources of methane emissions, the market and political drivers to reduce methane emissions, and the new technologies being developed to find and fix methane leaks. About the Speaker – Drew Pomerantz Andrew (Drew) E. Pomerantz is an Energy Transition Technology Advisor at Schlumberger, based in Boston, Massachusetts.  He focuses on new technologies that reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry, particularly novel methods to detect fugitive methane emissions.  Drew graduated from Stanford University with a PhD in chemistry in 2005 and has co-authored 100 peer-reviewed publications and 25 granted US patents.  He founded the Boston chapter of the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA).

It is estimated that storage rates will be needed of the order 1-10 GtCO2 per year by 2050, as much fluid handling as in the oil & gas industry today. The management of individual storage sites is increasingly understood with a number of projects injecting at rates around a million tCO2 per year. However, challenges remain for the scale-up of injection rates to gigatonnes per year. Central to these challenges are the limitations to modelling and predicting injected CO2 movement and immobilization in the subsurface. I will present research in three areas in which digital rock techniques are used to analyse fluid dynamics and develop models of subsurface flow across scales: (1) an exploration of the pore scale fluid dynamics underlying the use of Darcy’s law to model two-phase flow (2) the upscaled impacts of small scale heterogeneity on CO2 migration and trapping, and (3) an analysis of the implications of climate change mitigation targets to growth rates and global resource capacity of subsurface CO2 storage. The one idea I would like the members to take away is that these revolutions can and will drive each other; Technology advance in digital rock reservoir characterisation is revolutionising our ability to manage subsurface fluids just at the moment that we need it to apply our skills as  petroluem engineers in rising to the grand challenge of mitigating climate change. Biography: Sam Krevor is a Reader at Imperial College London where he leads the Subsurface CO2 group and is the Faculty Advisor for the SPE student chapter. He develops digital rock techniques to characterise CO2 storage underground with over 70 highly cited papers. He manages over £10M in industry and government funded research. He received his BSc, MSc, and PhD from Columbia University and was a Postdoctoral Scholar in Energy Resource Engineering at Stanford University.

  • Local Lecture: Localized Casing Expansion Technology Case Study: First Metal-to-Metal Seal

    Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM ET
    Abstract:   Fluid migration behind liners can be a refrac well operation-ending problem. In this case, it resulted in refrac operations being stopped due to the inability to convey perforating guns and plug tool string to the desired depths. In the past these liner sealing failures could be very difficult to remedy with the prospect of further well damage. Until recently, traditional methods for treating annular fluid loses and liner seal failure were not numerus and those methods available typically increased the likelihood of risk to the operational goals. The main disadvantage of the earlier mitigation methods centered around the need for a workover rig or other tubing/tool conveyance methods. With the Local Expander technology processes and intervention utilizing the same E-line unit preforming refrac operations. Casing expansion is a recent alternative remediation technology in which hoop straining and bending are the predominant deformation mechanisms. This deformation is inhomogeneous along the pipe circumference due to the cyclic symmetry in the tool geometry. To explain more simply, we impose a permanent radial expansion of the liner and casing, with the purpose of mechanically closing problematic pathways for pumped fluids. Only the basic well information such as, annular void, the liner, and casing details are necessary for the local expander remediation treatment to be initiated. These are all commonly reviewed prior to refract operations being conducted.  Expansive laboratory experiments and field trials have shown metal to metal seal expansion to be a promising alternative to traditional mitigation methods. We built on these insights and performed a controlled treatment with the expandable liner involving a 3.62” Local Expander tool and from these results in a live well operation the operator was able to document a full annular metal to metal seal thereby allowing refrac operations to continue.

  • SPE DL - Hon Chung Lau - The role of CCS and hydrogen in the Energy Transition

    Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM CET
    Contrary to popular belief, the ongoing energy transition from a high to low carbon economy requires more than harnessing renewable energies. Currently, only 11% of global energy consumption come from renewable energy while 85% come from fossil fuels. The current pace of installing renewable power plants is inadequate for nations to achieve net-zero by the second half of the century. Achieving net-zero will require each country to decarbonize all three major energy consumptions sectors: power, transport and industry. There are essentially five ways to achieve this. They are renewable energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen, nuclear energy and reducing energy demand. How each country will utilize these ways to go through the energy transition will depend on its specific energy mix and the need to balance energy security, affordability, and sustainability. This seminar will show how CCS and hydrogen are key to achieving net-zero in all three energy consumption sectors. Furthermore, there is enough storage capacity in oil and gas fields, and saline aquifers in the world to store two centuries of anthropgenic carbon dioxide emission. We will present several case studies of large-scale CCS demonstration projects in Europe and Asia and discuss what is needed to take CCS to the next level of implementation.

  • January Meeting - DL Michael F Rainbolt Fracture Driven Interactions

    Thursday, January 19, 2023, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    In January SPE Fort Worth will offer a unique opportunity to hear from Distinguished Lecturer Michael F. Rainbolt in a presentation of his paper " What You Need to Know About Fracture Driven Interactions " at our monthly luncheon at City Club Fort Worth.  We will start at 11:30am with lunch and Mike's presentation will begin at noon. Abstract Fracture driven interactions are well to well communication events that operators of horizontal shale play wells frequently encounter. Properly monitored and diagnosed, their impact on offsetting wells can be minimized with innovation and sound engineering practices. Fluid migration events between horizontal wells during fracture stimulation operations is a problem for many operators. Exacerbating factors such as decreased well spacing, greater proppant intensity and tighter cluster spacing are amplifying the problem. Formerly referred to as “frac hits”, these communication events are now called “fracture driven interactions” (FDIs). There are several aspects to FDIs such as timing, magnitude, slope intensity, duration, and fracture orientation. All of these will be covered in the presentation. The industry is trying to cope with the detrimental effects that FDIs can cause such as loss of production in existing wells and sub-economic initial rates of the new wells. Operators have begun to utilize techniques such as extreme limited entry perforating and various water loading strategies, up to and including refracturing existing wells to mitigate FDIs. The root causes of fracture driven interactions will be presented along with a rigorous description of FDI characteristics. case studies from various shale plays will be shown and discussed. One of the studies is a mitigation trial exploring the effectiveness of preloading versus continuous injection. FDI data collection best practices and using FDI data in the moment to make changes on-the-fly will be shown. FDI myths such as creating barriers by leaving wells shut-in after fracture stimulating will exposed and debunked. Illustrations and examples gathered from actual completion operations will be shown and explained in detail. The audience will come away with a good understanding of what fracture driven interactions are and how to what can be done to respond to them. Biography: Mike is a registered professional engineer and recently, senior technical advisor with Abra Controls Corporation in Houston, Tx. Mike earned a BS degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1978. Mike has worked as a Production Engineer, a Drilling Engineer and for the past 24 years as a Completions Engineer. Mike has international drilling and completions experience. Rainbolt has co-authored multiple SPE papers with the last four of them dealing specifically with Fracture Driven Interactions. Mike’s latest writing, “Monitoring Primary and Existing Wells During Infill Well Fracturing”, was published in the April 2019 special Issue of the Hydraulic Fracturing Journal. Mike was featured in an SPE Podcast on fracture driven interactions in February of 2020.

  • Reservoir Insights Unlocked by Multidisciplinary Integration

    Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 11:45 AM - 02:00 PM AEST
    Shauna Oppert Chevron Abstract: Integrated engineering and geoscience technologies provide insights into complex saturation, pressure, and geomechanical changes from reservoir production. Pressure Transient Analysis, 4D seismic interpretation, and Mechanical Earth Modeling each estimate dynamic property changes that can be complimentarily used to calibrate and cross-validate the other technologies. Three case studies are discussed to highlight the multidisciplinary approaches that have uncovered alternative scenarios and new understandings about the subsurface production effects. The value of integration is realized through improved forecasts driving better reservoir management decisions for EOR fields.   Future innovations in multi-disciplinary approaches will require increasing the complexity of production and subsurface effects associated with monitoring and modeling. Complex Water Alternating Gas injection modeling shows promise for integrated analyses. Production and injection involving complex subsurface features, such as fracture corridors, pose significant challenges for identifying production effects on surveillance data as well as accurately capturing and forecasting these effects in simulations. Coupled modeling, machine learning, and model inversion using surveillance data are key to drive new advances between engineering and geoscience integrated applications. Biography: Shauna Oppert leads Chevron’s technical integration between geophysics and geomechanics. She has 20 years of experience between Chevron and ExxonMobil and has published over 25 technical papers in her field. She earned a MSc. in Geophysics from the University of Calgary in 2002 and a BSc. in Geology & Geophysics from Missouri Science & Technology in 2000. She has been a keynote speaker for the 2021 EAGE PRM workshop, a panel speaker for the 2018 SPE IOR conference, and has served as the SEAM Life of Field Technical Committee Chair in the SEG for five years.

  • January Monthly Luncheon

    Thursday, January 26, 2023, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    The Hydraulic Fracturing Test Sites (HFTS) are an integrated data-driven hydraulic fracture diagnostic field pilots funded by the US Department of Energy and the oil/gas industry. The projects' main objective is to capture the hydraulic fracturing process through use of advanced diagnostics and collection of through-fracture cores to provide undisputable evidence and attributes of the created hydraulic fractures. At the HFTS I and II test sites in the Permian Midland and Delaware basins, three slant core wells were drilled through created hydraulic fractures and over 1,800 feet of core was recovered, capturing thousands of hydraulic fractures in their natural state, as well as deposited proppant. Proppant detection and quantification capabilities enabled collection of a proppant-log in a in-fill child well, provided insight on proppant distribution in the created fracture geometry. Data from the through-fracture cores captured at the HFTS I and II provide direct evidence of the created hydraulic fractures and proppant distribution. The findings are challenging the understanding and current modeling capabilities of hydraulic fracture geometry, fracture propagation, and proppant distribution. Results from these field pilots are applicable to the global stacked-pay shale resources and provide for the foundation for the Environmentally Prudent Development of stacked-pay Unconventional Resources. This presentation provides results from the slant core wells and implications on future unconventional well development.

  • Monthly Meeting: Overview of the Middle Velkerri Shale, Beetaloo Sub-basin, NT, Australia

    Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM CT
    ABSTRACT The Beetaloo sub-basin is a Mesoproterozoic to Neoproterozoic sedimentary basin that overlies the western extension of the McArthur Basin. The basin is bounded by several prominent structural elements including the Walton High to the North, the Bauhinia Shelf to the East, and the Helen Springs High to the South. The western margin is defined by the Daly Waters Arch, which separates the Beetaloo sub-basin from the Elsey Gravity Low, also referred to as the Gorrie Sub-basin. The target source rock intervals of the Beetaloo sub-basin are found within the Mesoproterozoic Roper Group, a thick sedimentary package consisting of quartz sandstones, siltstones, and organic-rich siliceous mudstones. The Velkerri Formation (~1.4 billion years old) of the Roper Group has been identified as a prospective unconventional exploration target.

  • SPE DL: The Digital Twin for Production Optimization - with Emphasis on Compositional Modeling

    Tuesday, February 28, 2023, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM BRT
    Palestrante: Kristian Mogensen  ( ADNOC HQ ). Abstract: A digital twin is essentially a digital representation of a physical system such as a well, pump, compressor, or a series of connected items. Sometimes, machine-learning algorithms can assist in analyzing large amounts of data within domains such as preventive maintenance. The value proposition of a digital twin is to have a complete overview of all fluid streams in the production and injection network to enable automation of production capacity planning subject to current and future constraints. The digital solution must be versatile, maintainable, accurate, and with a quick turnaround time to address dynamic changes in market demand as well as the supply side down to the individual wells. Integrated asset models (IAM) have been around for the past two decades or so. These models have become more sophisticated but also require more effort to maintain. The Digital Oil Field (DOF) orchestrates data exchange between different IT systems to feed a calibrated IAM model. An IAM-DOF system provides an up-to-date overview of all fluid streams to maximize value creation subject to a number of constraints. The digital solution must be versatile, maintainable, accurate, and with a quick turnaround time to address dynamic changes in market demand as well as the supply side. So far, digital twins have mainly focused on mimicking small, well-defined systems, whereas IAM models tend to address the bigger picture. Can we take the best from both worlds? Do you need to? And how would you go about developing such a technical solution? These are some of the aspects which we will discuss in this presentation. When you blend different fluid systems together, you need a robust fluid description at well level. Complicating factors may arise, such as compositional variation at reservoir level, gas coning as well as breakthrough of injection gas. Many such technical details must be factored in, without losing sight of the overall goal: to create more value. Biography: Kristian Mogensen works as a Senior Specialist at ADNOC Upstream in Abu Dhabi and is the receiver of the 2020 SPE Regional Award on Reservoir Description and Dynamics. Kristian has published more than 35 SPE papers and holds 20 patents. His main technical interests include enhanced oil recovery, pore-scale physics, matrix-acid stimulation, and fluid phase behavior. He serves as technical editor for SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering and as Associate Editor for Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering.

  • Distinguished Lecture: Fracture Challenge: What can we resolve while drilling?

    Wednesday, March 15, 2023, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM ET
    Fracture Challenge: What can we resolve while drilling? Chandramani Shrivastava Schlumberger Abstract: Fractures remain one of the most important events in the subsurface to impact the reservoirs, from drilling till characterization, development and abandonment. Natural or induced (while drilling or stimulation), they need to be detected early to understand their propagation behaviour and impact under different conditions. Industry has been grappling with this challenge, as often their impact is understood very late. Many indirect methods have helped understand fractures for decades; however, new technologies and applications can help detect, identify and characterize the fractures while drilling itself. This is achieved by analysing Basic measurements-while-drilling (MWD) data Surface logging data for cuttings and mud-gas Logging-while-drilling (LWD) basic to advanced measurements Recent advances in technology have made possible to perform and transmit downhole interpretation while drilling commences, in addition to sending multiple measurements uphole at limited bandwidth for real-time interpretation. Machine learning methods are being used to automate the fracture detection workflows removing subjectivity in interpretation. Several case studies from across the globe will be shared to show what all can be resolved while drilling to address the fracture challenge and provide actionable intelligence.   Biography:   Chandramani Shrivastava heads the geology domain for Schlumberger's Well Construction division and is based out of its headquarters in Sugar Land, US. He holds M.Tech in Applied Geology from IIT-Rookee (India) and MS in Petroleum Engineering from Heriot Watt University (UK). He has worked in India, Middle East, South East Asia, West Africa and US in various technical profiles. He has more than 80 presentations and publications to his credit at various symposia and conferences in ~20 years of service. He specializes in interpretation of well-logs and integration of data across disciplines, and is considered an industry expert in borehole images.

  • March 2023 - SPE Distinguished Lecturer - Ron Balliet

    Thursday, March 16, 2023, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM MT
    Unlocking Unconventional Reservoirs using Magnetic Resonance as the Key Ron Balliet Halliburton Abstract:  Unconventional reservoirs now comprise a large segment of global oilfield exploration, development and production. A major challenge for the oil industry is quantifying the storage volume or reservoir porosity where pore size is dramatically smaller than in conventional reservoirs. Correct estimation of reservoir storage can determine the economics of an unconventional field. The initial myth of uniformity across these source rock reservoirs has now evolved to understanding how very different these global deposits truly are. A few of the major differences include thermal maturity, mineral composition and amount of kerogen present. Magnetic Resonance logging and T1T2 analysis have become a “Revolution in Resolution” for Unconventional Reservoir Formation Evaluation for several reasons. Unlike conventional logs, porosity from these T1T2 measurements are unaffected by kerogen presence or varying mineralogy, and provide a more accurate porosity estimation. A log measured porosity that correlates well with laboratory core porosity, but also provides full fluid quantification for clay bound water, organic pore hydrocarbons, producible water, free gas and mobile oil. The method also encompasses any inter-bedded conventional sands, silts and carbonates. This presentation describes the measurement principles, formation evaluation methodology and applications of Magnetic Resonance for Unconventional Reservoir challenges. New formation evaluation concepts are introduced for obtaining and quantifying individual reservoir fluid volumes.   A range of global case studies are used to demonstrate the differences in source rock reservoirs, their challenges and proposed solutions. The primary message is to provide a new perspective being adopted by the industry for formation evaluation in Unconventional Reservoirs. Biography:  Ron Balliet is the Halliburton Global Product Champion for Magnetic Resonance. He supports formation evaluation and operations for Halliburton Wireline & Perforating and Sperry Drilling product lines.  He has a 33 year involvement with oilfield magnetic resonance and has worked in several locations around the world. He has been involved with the design and interpretation methods for seven wireline and LWD magnetic resonance sensors including applications for Unconventional reservoirs. He has published twenty technical papers, seven NMR related patents and has been a member of SPE for 23 years.  He holds Bachelor of Science Degrees in Geophysics and Geology.

  • SPE DL: An Examination of the Effects of Surface Data Acquisition Methods on Well Performance Eval..

    Friday, March 24, 2023, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM BRT
    Palestrante: Darryl Tompkins ( Revo Testing Technologies ). Abstract: It is a common practice in the development of wells to change completions designs in an effort to determine which design works best in each area. Quite often a Rate Transient Analysis (“RTA”) of the flowback / early production data is used to evaluate how well performance is affected by changes in the completion design. Many analysts faced with performing RTA struggle to have confidence in the analysis results due to poor quality production data. This presentation shows how different surface data acquisition methods effect the evaluation of well performance using common RTA techniques. Additionally, this presentation will recommend preferred methods of data acquisition and demonstrate how these methods produce less ambiguous results. Superior data quality should be a top priority if a well's performance and/or completion design needs to be evaluated quickly and accurately with RTA of the early production period. Iterative completion optimization can be a waste of time and money if the difference in a well's performance due to changes in the completion design cannot be evaluated quickly and accurately due to poor surface data acquisition methods. Biography: Darryl has spent his career working in reservoir, completions, and operations engineering in mature fields, gas storage, and unconventionals. He is currently the Chief Technology Officer of Revo Testing Technologies based in Houston TX where he works on developing technologies for unconventional well performance evaluations and production optimization. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario and he holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Windsor, Canada.

    Bio: Tom Emelander is the Product Line Manager for Weatherford’s Whipstock Systems. His early career focused on support and implementation of Casing Exit Technologies.  After gaining operational experience, he was elevated to Technical Specialist where he guided his team to significant improvements in service quality.  His recent role is focused on increasing efficiencies, developing new technologies, and working with operators on highly innovative re-entry projects including multiple industry first installations.   Regarded as a subject matter expert, he has authored multiple technical papers and industry articles.  Tom has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Western Michigan University. Abstract: Sidetracking with Whipstocks: An Efficient Method for Increasing Your Operational and Asset Value   As the demand increases to lower overall cost of accessing reserves, more reliable operations during the well construction process are required and refined methods for maximizing the value of existing assets must be considered.  In drilling operations, there are numerous reasons why sidetracking may be a planned or contingency event.  Additionally, many if not all, fields have existing assets that can potentially be utilized to reestablish or increase production while reducing cost and footprint associated with a new drill.  One option of sidetracking a well involves a ramp directionally anchored in the casing or open hole to create a window for future drilling and completion assemblies. Whipstock sidetracking has evolved as a viable solution to add operational value in both new and mature wells.   Through technological advances, whipstock operations have become more efficient and can cover most applications for new drills and re-entries.  With additional evolutions in drilling capabilities and more complex wellbore design, sidetracking in casing or open hole can provide an economical advantage over traditional contingency solutions.  From an overall cost per foot perspective, multilateral and re-entry projects can reduce the operational spend to access additional reserves while reducing the environmental footprint.   With extensive run history and ever-increasing developments in equipment, competency, and data driven analytics, the scope and success for whipstock sidetracking operations provides operators with lower risk options to further industry optimization.    This presentation will focus on identification of applications and methods to increase operational efficiency in the process of drilling and completing wells along with recovering stranded production in existing fields.

  • April 2023 - SPE Distinguished Lecturer - Drew Pomerantz

    Wednesday, April 12, 2023, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MT
    Methane Emissions: Our Obligation and Our Opportunity in the Energy Transition    Drew Pomerantz Schlumberger   Abstract:  The world has entered an energy transition where the future role of energy sources will depend partially on their greenhouse gas footprint.  While that transition is expected to take a generation, some changes will occur quickly.  One of the fastest ways to combat climate change is to reduce emissions of methane, not carbon dioxide.  Methane is the main component of natural gas and a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.  The oil and gas industry handles a large quantity of methane, and a small amount of that methane leaks to the atmosphere.  Because methane is such a potent greenhouse gas, those emissions are small in volume but large in environmental impact: methane is the dominant source of our industry's direct greenhouse gas emissions, above other sources like flaring.  This lecture describes the main sources of methane emissions, the market and political drivers to reduce methane emissions, and the new technologies being developed to find and fix methane leaks.  Biography:  Andrew (Drew) E. Pomerantz is an Energy Transition Technology Advisor at Schlumberger, based in Boston, Massachusetts.  He focuses on new technologies that reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry, particularly novel methods to detect fugitive methane emissions.  Drew graduated from Stanford University with a PhD in chemistry in 2005 and has co-authored 100 peer-reviewed publications and 25 granted US patents.  He founded the Boston chapter of the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA). Event details: This is scheduled to be an online event, the SPE Distinguished Lecturer will be providing his presentation remotely.
