What you will learn

  • How geology and post-depositional effects can make the difference between a successful well and a failure.
  • Geologic knowledge that must be considered to make a successful shale completion.
  • How tight oil sands might be approached with the same technologies used in shale reservoir fracturing.

Description

Shale well construction and fracturing are both geology controlled, with probably more geologic impact in developing stimulated rock volume in an unconventional reservoir than in a conventional one.

This presentation will look at well placement vertically in the pay, well azimuth and well trajectory with explanations of how geology and post-depositional effects can make the difference between a successful well and a failure. Both the macro and micro scale will be used to look at flow paths in the shale and behavior of shale wells on the producing side.

Examples from several shales will be used to identify geologic knowledge that must be considered to make a successful shale completion.

The presentation will also cover how tight oil sands might be approached with the same technologies used in shale reservoir fracturing.

  • Store Name: AAPG
  • American Association of Petroleum Geologists Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today. AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public. As the world's premier professional association for explorationists, AAPG is about the science of petroleum geology. It's also about the people. AAPG's membership is made up of more than 40,000 members in 129 countries in the upstream energy industry who collaborate – and compete – to provide the means for humankind to thrive. AAPG provides the network of communications that allow those professionals to succeed.
