Reservoir Description and DynamicsBack to disciplines home
Listen to a web event on “Addressing Infectious Diseases in Oil and Gas Workplace” presented by Malick Diara on 23 March.
Join Paul Jackson on 22 April as he discusses “Managing Employee Fatigue through a Fatigue Risk Management Plan.”
Gain training on the evaluation methods and techniques that can be utilized to delineate productive shales from barren shales. One of the major challenges of gas shale reservoirs is to apply conventional log data to acquire reservoir rock properties.
Because of the coal depositional process and the nature of gas storage and transport mechanisms, a large percentage of coalbed methane (CBM) exists in low-permeability, or tight, coals.
Gain a technical overview of the geologic, evaluation, completion and development aspects of shale with a special emphasis on what is unique compared to conventional oil and gas.
From its beginning, microseismic imaging of hydraulic fracturing has created controversy. Gain an understanding of the foundation of the “ground truth” from microseismic imaging data, an appreciation for the implementation and benefits of the technology, and an awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of the technology.
Attend a web event on “Application Fiber Optic Technology for Well and Reservoir Management” presented by Gustavo Ugueto and Paul Huckabee on 26 February.
Attend a web event on “Safety Culture Before and After Bhopal” presented by Howard Duhon on 24 February.
Renew before it ends on 31 December 2014.
SPE has formed a Technical Section to give members the opportunity to focus on Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS), an area of interest for petroleum engineers worldwide. Industry interest in CCUS as a way to reduce emissions and for sequestering or storing carbon dioxide, has increased over the past decade. In response, SPE has stepped up programming in this area.
