SPE Workshop: The Duvernay Liquids Rich Shale - What Makes it Different and How Do We Optimize It? 18 Oct 2017 Civic on Third Calgary, Alberta, Canada

The Duvernay shale, an emerging oil and liquid-rich gas formation with 417 MMboe initial reserves (AER, Dec 2016), is the source rock for historical conventional hydrocarbon in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. 

The amount of wells drilled and hydraulically fractured has increased exponentially from 4 in 2010 to 315 by mid-2016 with the longest completed length increased from 1200m to over 3000m. 

Despite the low commodity price environment, activity in the condensate-rich area has not slowed down due to the operators’ capability in drilling and completing these wells cheaper and faster.
