PS01  Panel Session 1: "Facts and Fiction" Unconventional Projects Outside North America Meeting Room B1, Boulevard Level
Moderator(s) Jennifer Miskimins - Colorado School of Mines, Usman Ahmed - WellDog
Speaker(s) Alexander Cote - Origin Energy, Louis Yang - Orion Energy Internationall, Inc., George Waters - Schlumberger
If we have learned anything from the North American experience, unconventional resources cannot be exploited by small incremental projects. If we are to be successful in developing these types of reservoirs, we have to make project scale operations work to bring these resources to market in a timely manner.

A number of Eastern Hemisphere unconventional gas projects have raised interest, neared completion or are commencing deliveries. Success or failure of these projects has depended on successfully addressing key technical project management, political and community issues. A panel of company representatives spanning experience in projects across the Eastern Hemisphere have been invited to share with the audience how each of the projects they have been involved fared in the "technical" metrics including:,
a) scoping;
b) cost management;
c) scheduling and implementation; and
d) achieving defined business objectives.

As well as sharing experiences relating to each panellist’s project, it is hoped they can give their insight to future projects by addressing some questions based on their experiences, such as the following:
a) What are the main technical inhibitors to these projects and what are some of the ways to overcome them?
b) What became the highest risk and capital cost driver, what is the impact, and how much subsurface definition is needed before committing to further development?
c) How is the best way to acquire and manage resources, in all senses of the word: people, materials, and services capacity?
d) How do we ensure the development delivers the business’ objectives?
e) Do we have the project management skills and business climate required to ensure success of these projects at the current maturity of the unconventional market in the Eastern Hemisphere?

By bringing experienced technical managers currently involved in industry projects to the panel, we hope to generate fruitful discussions on key pre-requisites for delivering unconventional projects in the Eastern Hemisphere into the future.

It is fitting that the first URTeC to be held outside of North America is being held in Queensland, Australia, home to the three of the largest (by most capital and production metrics) unconventional development projects outside of North America. Queensland’s projects are also the only to date where unconventional gas development has been used exclusively to underpin an LNG development.

Since reaching Final Investment Decisions (FID) nearly a decade ago, the three projects have drilled and brought online thousands of wells, and exported numerous cargoes of LNG. During this period projects have move from schedule focused to meet target first-gas dates to value focused during the “operate and sustain” phase. Under intense regulatory, community, political and shareholder scrutiny, operators have made technical and operational gains to drive efficiencies and value while maintaining an outstanding track record of safety and environmental performance.

In this session we have sought participation from operating companies and service or consulting firms to gain broad insights into the history and future of what are some of Australia’s biggest ever infrastructure projects.

The International Energy Agency (WEO2017) suggest that global natural gas use is projected to rise by 1.6% pa to 2040 if policies already announced are implemented. This growth is concentrated in the Asia Pacific region. Gas trading will more than double by 2040, that 90% of the additional gas trade will be in the form of LNG. To fulfil this demand, it is suggested that almost one third of production may need to be unconventional i.e. we need produce gas intensively near where people live, to cohabit land and not necessarily where people are used to the industry.

The reason for this rising demand varies with location and jurisdiction and therefore the nature of “social licence” can be expected to have a different flavour. We are already seeing gas demand rise from coal substitution in response to air quality concerns. We expect a massive growth in the need for gas as an industrial feedstock as regional economies continue to develop. Perhaps more importantly as population rises we see increased demand for gas fertilisers. The potential for methane to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensity in power generation has long been established but depends critically on our ability to supply fuel at costs competitive with coal.

There is a lot at stake if we don’t get social licence right for the places we produce.

In this session we will explore experiences from operators and regulators to discuss the changing nature of social licence and possibly unforeseen, “knock-on” effects of the changing mode of production.

Training Course: Applied Statistical Modeling and Data Analytics for Reservoir Performance Analysis
Ticketed Event

Instructor: Srikanta Mishra

There is a growing trend towards the use of statistical modeling and data analytics for analyzing the performance of petroleum reservoirs. The goal is to “mine the data” and develop data-driven insights to understand and optimize reservoir response. The process involves: (1) acquiring and managing data in large volumes, of different varieties, and at high velocities, and (2) using statistical techniques to discover hidden patterns of association and relationships in these large, complex, multivariate datasets. However, the subject remains a mystery to most petroleum engineers and geoscientists because of the statistics-heavy jargon and the use of complex algorithms.

This workshop will provide an introduction to statistical modeling and data analytics for reservoir performance analysis by focusing on: (a) easy-to-understand descriptions of the commonly-used concepts and techniques, and (b) case studies demonstrating the value-added proposition for these methods. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops to follow along with the exercises in the workshop.

Topics

  • Terminology and basic concepts of statistical modeling and data analytics
  • Multivariate data reduction and clustering (for finding sub-groups of data that have similar attributes)
  • Machine learning for regression and classification (for developing data-driven input-output models from production data as an alternative to physics-based models)
  • Proxy construction using experimental design (for building fast statistical surrogate models of reservoir performance from simulator outputs for history matching and uncertainty analysis)
  • Uncertainty quantification for performance forecasting

AAPG Training Course: Volumetric Analysis of Shale Reservoirs
Ticketed Event

Instructor: Reza Rezaee

Volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs is of prime importance in oil and gas industry. This course practically elaborates how different shale petrophysical parameters such as porosity, fluid saturation, and adsorbed gas, which are essential for volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs, can be estimated using well-log data.

The major goal of the course is to show attendees how different shale petrophysical parameters such as porosity, fluid saturation, and adsorbed gas can be estimated. These petrophysical parameters are essential for volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs.

Mastering Uncertainty and Risk in Unconventional Reservoir Assessment (Shale, Coals, Tight Sandstones & Carbonates)
Ticketed Event

Instructor: Creties D. Jenkins

This one-day course provides a robust framework for assessing uncertainty and risk in unconventional projects. It begins by summarizing the key discipline-specific workflows and work products needed to characterize your project. It then introduces 1) statistics as a basis for applying probabilistic techniques, 2) approaches for estimating key parameters under uncertainty, and 3) techniques to mitigate bias in your work. The course then turns to using aggregation and its derivative products (trumpet plots, confidence curves, and sequential aggregation plots) to quantify the optimal number of appraisal wells and track your drilling progress. The course concludes by applying what’s been learned within a staged approach in order to expose capital incrementally and make good decisions along the way about whether to continue funding the project. Geoscientists, engineers, commercial team members, business analysts, and managers will all benefit from this course.
