Integrating Data Sets to Reduce Uncertainty in Unconventional Field Development: Case Studies

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 10:00 AM

The challenge for E&Ps in unconventional fields is the same as always: How do you balance the risk of poor well production with the cost of gathering data to improve production? If information on a well’s completion strategy effectiveness were free, operators would gather data on every well to continuously hone their field development plans. Unfortunately, developing unconventional resources has shown that conventional practices are insufficient to deliver superior operational and financial performance. New technology and methods of integrating data sets improve reservoir understanding by reducing the underlying uncertainty. This webcast with case studies will discuss how proven technologies, including fiber optics and pressure-based fracture maps, are providing cost-effective solutions for enhancing field development.

IoT Solutions in Oil and Gas

Thursday, July 20, 2017 1:00 PM

Whether your operation is upstream, midstream, or downstream – your organization needs a solution that connects disparate assets, systems, databases, and data/naming conventions. The industrial IoT enables organizations to build smart system architectures that avoid these classic data silos to prove concepts and produce business value. Industrial IoT applications can improve efficiency in Oil and Gas operations: Operations data management: what data can be relieved to lower the risk of overburdening the operational host, i.e., SCADA or DCS? Product life cycle management as a service or a product: how can we use machine learning to more effectively monitor pump asset anomalies and manage the care for better production results? By the end of 2017, we predict there will be large quantities of proof of concept (PoC) industrial IoT applications in Oil and Gas. There is so much potential. To effectively bring the power of IoT to your organization, a smart approach is to choose a project that can be implemented quickly and has a clear, measurable business value. Start simple, succeed, and apply your learning to the next project.

Productivity Improvements Through Integrated Analysis of Frac Tracer, Stimulation and Geophysical Data

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 10:00 AM

Adding tracers to stimulation fluid has become the industry standard methodology to identify stage production of gas, oil, and water along the length of a wellbore with no well intervention needs. This inexpensive technology provides confirmation that a wellbore is open to flow, identifies and quantifies stage flow contribution and provides a measure of drainage area connectivity. It also allows a correlation between zonal productivity with respect to drilling, stimulation, and production design. Using this knowledge, the operator can amend future well development plans with a greater confidence that the changes made will result in enhanced ultimate hydrocarbon recovery. The webinar will illustrate the use of Tracerco tracer technology as an evaluation tool to enhance future drilling, stimulation, and production decisions. It will provide case studies comparing actual production results with pre-completion seismic and geophysical expectations (seismic, log, landing zone, etc.) and demonstrate how the combination of tracer data, along with other information gathered during the drilling and stimulation process, can assist in optimizing recovery during future well development.
