  • Geology & Geophysics: AAPG at a glance

    World Oil is pleased to introduce a special section on Geology & Geophysics (G&G). These sections are timed with the major G&G industry conferences: American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).

  • Geology & Geophysics: How local variations in thermal maturity affect shale oil economics and producibility

    Janell D. Edman

    Geochemical analysis of Eagle Ford oils from First Shot field illustrates how areas with higher thermal maturity have better-quality oils that are both easier to produce and less costly to refine.

  • Geology & Geophysics: Oil fingerprinting dramatically reduces production allocation costs

    Mark A. McCaffrey, David K. Baskin, Brooks A. Patterson, Danielle H. Ohms, Christopher Stone and David Reisdorf

    Effective field development strategies require operators to know what portion of original resources has not yet been produced. Determining not-yet-produced resources can be a complex challenge when production is commingled from multiple zones. A new technique has been developed that achieves production allocation at a fraction of the cost.
