This Applied Technology Workshop will be addressing key technologies and best practices for improving well performance in low permeability reservoirs in the Rocky Mountain Region. The workshop will be focusing on tight oil and gas technology applications including fluids and clean-up, proppants, evaluation and diagnostics. Technology sessions such as shales, horizontal wells, and refracture stimulation applications will also be included. Case studies highlighting best practices from Canada, the Piceance Basin, Greater Green River Basin, and other active Rocky Mountain development areas will be presented. This workshop will attract an informed audience with knowledge of technologies and application practices in unconventional reservoir systems. The format is structured for brief introductory presentations, followed by extended and facilitated Q&A with the audience.
Workshops maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.
Many of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the press are not invited to attend.
Proceedings from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts are not requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the workshop.
In remaining consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted. Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).
Attendees will receive 2.0 CEUs.
One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant’s involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.
