Objectively Evaluating the Effectiveness of Unconventional Completions: Lessons Learned

Thursday, July 21, 2016 10:00 AM

Decisions made when designing a new well or multi-well pad inevitably influence production and EUR. However, it can be difficult or impossible to see a clear correlation between those decisions and resulting well performance, even when examining large well populations with a lot of data. This presentation outlines a benchmarking methodology that uses Rate Transient Analysis to objectively quantify the impact of measurable drilling, completion and stimulation parameters on post-completion well performance. Results and associated lessons learned from several field examples will be discussed in detail: • Assessing the impact of completion type on well performance (Permian Basin) • Optimizing stage spacing and treatment size (Montney Shale and Permian Basin) • Attaining predictable and scalable results (Montney Shale) • Maximizing completion effectiveness for infills (Eagle Ford Shale)

Identifying Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Best Practices In the Oil & Gas Industry

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 11:00 AM

Current volatility in the oil & gas industry presents serious challenges for both E&P companies and downstream producers with ramifications to the management of their asset portfolio. As many projects – big and small -- continue to exceed budgets and deadlines, oil and gas companies need robust enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) that enables the optimization of capital, resources, and time. In such a high-stakes environment, Frost & Sullivan has identified Oracle’s Primavera as a single platform enabling visibility across the entire project portfolio to deliver optimal performance, which, in turn, reduces risks, increases operational efficiencies and drives financial performance. Join this webinar as we look to demystify the software of choice to manage high-capital, asset-intensive, and multi-stakeholder project portfolios in the oil and gas industry. During this webinar we will: • Understand the current situation and challenges of the oil & gas industry • Learn about the key building blocks of a robust enterprise software solution to manage a project portfolio • Discover how Oracle offers an EPPM solution that solves the portfolio issues at stake
