Abstract: “Beyond the North American Super Basin Mudrock Plays: The Unconventional Development of Conventional Reservoirs”

 

The past dozen or so years have resulted in unpresented production growth from a new class of reservoir, the mudrock, or what is more commonly referred to as “shale”. Integral to the commercial development of the mudrocks was the . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – January 2019

Abstract:

 

Image data—from airplanes, satellites, or drones—provides unique information, is not expensive, it works with common computer setups, is widely available, and merges easily with other data and maps. Photogeology has led exploration for over 80 years. It adds information to those large, white areas on lease maps, high grades areas and establishes the . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – October 2018

Petroleum Geomechanics is concerned with rock and fracture behavior in reservoir, drilling, completion and production engineering. In more detail, Geomechanics aims to understand how soils and rocks deform to changes of stress, pressure, chemistry and of temperature. During last several decades, intense research has been conducted to better comprehend the processes that link temperature (T), hydrologic flow (H), mechanical deformation (M), and chemical alteration (C) in fractured rock/soils systems. The study is complex because these processes are strongly . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – May 2018

Abstract:

Unconventional Isn’t Easy

Trevor Casper The pace of horizontal drilling in onshore plays far outpaces the drilling of conventional vertical and deviated wells in North America. This pace, combined with strategies like pad drilling and early industry and financing comments about “mining” for oil and gas, have contributed to a sense, in some circles, . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – February 2018
