The Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico has been one of the most attractive and productive regions in the USA for the past century. Although its conventional reservoirs are heavily developed, todayâ€™s unconventional prospects offer great return on investment. Such unconventional plays as the Wolfberry, Bone Spring, Woodford, Spraberry, Avalon and others have already caught attention of the leading global operators and local independents. New completions techniques are continually being tested to cost-effectively maximize the oil recovery and reduce the risk of blowouts and environmental impact of the operations.
In the diverse environments of the Permian Basin, a key to success is using geological and petrophysical reservoir analysis to determine the most effective completions design needed. E&P companies of the Permian Basin are also testing various fracture fluids, choosing the most optimal proppant concentration and fracture sizes to get a greater rate of return and reduce the cost of their operations.
Permian Basin Unconventional Oil: Completions Optimization Summit 2011 will bring together the most innovative and knowledgeable experts from E&P companies across the Basin to discuss the results of using various completions designs and to establish how to cost-effectively evaluate reservoirs to reduce the cost of drilling and completions and optimize recovery rates.
Day one will host operators to discuss their choices of drilling and completions techniques and compare the results. Experts will be looking at every aspect of completions process such as fracture fluids, optimal concentration of proppant, optimal fracture sizes and disposal and recycling techniques for fracture water.
Day two will establish which geological and petrophysical tools are the most efficient while looking at reducing the pre-production cost of the operations. Operators will be discussing how to reduce drilling and completions cost by implementing the most cost-effective evaluation tools for logging, core analysis and retrieving microseismic and seismic data.
