L01  Keynote Luncheon: Balancing Energy Security, Economic Security, and Climate Security Junior Ballroom, Level 3
Speaker(s) Scott Tinker - Bureau of Economic Geology
Providing security is a primary objective of every global leader. With the fervent push in Western Europe and the US to address climate issues, and the resultant policy-driven energy crisis in the EU, several important realties are becoming clear. First, there are no clean and dirty, renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. They all have benefits and environmental impacts. There are trade-offs. Second, not everything can, or should be electrified. Many of the industrial materials and services required by global economies such as steel, cement, plastic, ammonia and transoceanic travel require high heat produced by burning energy dense molecules. Finally, secure energy—affordable, reliable and safe—underpins economic health, lifts people from poverty, and provides nations with the ability to invest in the environment, including atmospheric emissions reductions. Intermittent sources such as solar and wind require expensive backup to make them reliable. Recognizing these realities sets the framework for a balanced dialog about energy, climate, poverty, and other major global issues.

Session Chairpersons Mary Susan Van Domelen - WellData Labs, Catherine E Oster - Devon Energy Corporation

This session is dedicated to the lessons learned from a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating reservoir drainage patterns and hydraulic fracture stimulation interactions in a development consisting of primary (parent) wells, new infill wells and a horizontal devoted exclusively to observation. The study was conducted as part of the DOE/NETL Hydraulic Fracturing Test Site 1. Showcased are the advanced monitoring and analysis techniques utilized to evaluate the potential to capture stranded reserves via refracs and infill drilling. Technologies deployed include liner refracs, horizontal coring, formation imaging and advanced lateral logs, sealed wellbore pressure monitoring (SWPM), downhole fiber-optics (both permanent and deployable), seven downhole pressure gauges, time-lapse geochemistry, and iterative production interference tests. The results confirmed that secondary development is a viable strategy and provides guidance towards a successful full field development strategy.
