An Unconventional Approach to Oilfield Acquisitions
Figuring out the right price for an active oil and gas field is tricky business in the shale sector but one producer explains how it uses data analytics to get a clearer picture.
PDC Optimistic About Wattenberg, Delaware Assets
PDC’s president and CEO describes the company’s management strategy for its hydraulic fracturing operations in the Wattenberg Field and the Delaware Basin.
Governments, companies, service providers, and many other stakeholders in the industry have realized the oil-price outlook may remain low for longer than expected and the need to plan accordingly.
Unconventional Risk and Uncertainty: What Does Success Look Like?
This paper presents approaches for proper risking of uncertain recoverable volumes for an unconventional resource, taking into account the chance of false positives from appraisal-well information.
Calculating Reserve Estimates Even for Solar Power Projects
Compared to oil in the ground, the sun looks like a limitless energy source. Making comparisons of the two by calculating the equivalent of barrels of reserves for a solar project seems like an odd notion, but experts say it can and should be done.
Marcellus Wells: Ultimate Production Accurately Predicted From Initial Production
In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.
Geology-Driven Estimated-Ultimate-Recovery Prediction With Deep Learning
The authors present a geology-driven deep-learning estimated-ultimate-recovery (EUR)-prediction model for multistage hydraulically fractured horizontal wells in tight gas and oil reservoirs.
Drawdown Management Critical To Mitigating EUR Losses in Shale Wells
In drawdown management, operators can exert control over the downhole flow pressure, reservoir pressure, and choke size to avoid estimated ultimate recovery (EUR) losses.
Chance of Development: Definition, Estimation, and Use
This paper will examine ways in which Chance of Development (CoD) can be defined better, methods for its estimation, and its appropriate application along with common misuses.
The need for cost and capital efficiency calls for careful integration of technical and commercial elements.
