Session 1: UR - Unconventional EOR and EGR I

Achieving high hydrocarbon recovery is challenging in unconventional tight and shale reservoirs. Although EOR/EGR processes could potentially improve the recovery factor beyond the primary depletion, large-scale field application of these processes are not yet established in these reservoirs. This session will focus on the latest research trends, modelling and experimental work to better understand issues involved in improved economic recovery from such reservoirs.

Session 2: UR - Optimizing Hydraulic Fracturing Systems and Equipment

This session offers a diverse set of cutting edge topics for delegates interested in hydraulic fracturing.  Topics that will be presented include the effects of fluid imbibition on different reservoir rocks, measuring cement integrity before and after multi-stage fracturing, transportation of proppants into fracture networks, the potential to utilize hydraulic fracturing to dispose of CO2,  and building calibrated fracture models with microseismic data. Eposters explore the effectiveness of different completion techniques and proppant selection when fracturing unconventional reservoirs with foam fluid systems.

Session 3: UR - Reservoir Characterization I

This session will provide insights into the characterization and performance behavior of unconventional reservoirs. New techniques in rate transient analysis (RTA), analytical and numerical methods are developed and employed to assess stimulation effectiveness, rock and fluid behavior. Major unconventional formations are studied including the Eagle Ford and Niobrara.
