Session 31: Unconventionals

In response to the spotlight on unconventional systems, this opportune technical session will provide a sampling of the state-of-the-art in tight and shale reservoirs. From phase behavior, storage and surface diffusion in nano-porous media to seismic integration and fracturing fluid recovery, you are guaranteed to get applicable knowledge from all around the world. We also revisit effective application of current decline curves techniques to improve our confidence in handling liquid-rich shale reservoirs. Topics such as evaluation of distance of investigation, stimulated reservoir volume, and novel conceptual models in pressure and production rate analysis for shale reservoirs are also covered in this session.

Session 40: Artificial Lift: Applications and Case Histories

This session will highlight various artificial lift technologies and applied intelligent data management studies to help extend run times, improve economics and/or solve challenging production issues. Global focus areas will include onshore, offshore, new, mature, harsh environment wells and even those wells that were previously thought to be plug and abandonment candidates. Excellent studies are reviewed including an inverted ESP application for water coning, a rigless ESP installation, a 400 well focused study and automation that extended pump life by four times, reviving mature wells, a look at high pressure gaslift and the application of the worlds longest intelligent stroke reciprocating pump.
