Unconventional Reservoir Analysis

Carl Sondergeld, Ph.D
Descripción del instructor

Is currently Professor and the Curtis Mewbourne Chair at the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, University of Oklahoma. He earned a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Cornell University and a B.A. and M.A. in Geology from Queens College, CUNY. He spent 19 years at the Tulsa Research Center of Amoco Production Company where he conducted research in petro- and rock physics He holds 14 US patents. He has been at the University of Oklahoma for 15 years; teaching petrophysics, geological well logging, petrophysics of unconventional resources, and seismic reservoir modeling. He is a two-time winner of the Brandon Griffin award and five time winner of SPE student chapter award of professor of the year. He currently conducts research on unconventional reservoir rocks, in particular shales, and in the areas of microstructural characterization, anisotropy, NMR, petrophysics, hydraulic fracturing and seismic reservoir modeling. He served as the SEG Distinguished Lecture for the fall 2010. He and Dr. Chandra Rai manage two industrial consortia: “Experimental Rock Physics” and “The Unconventional Shale Consortium.”

ABOUT COURSE

 

This 5-day course is focused on new knowledge required by petrophysicists, engineers and geologist and to evaluate and exploit unconventional reservoirs. Characteristics of unconventional reservoirs are low porosity, extremely low permeability, a need for stimulation and disseminated rather than pooled hydrocarbons.  Unconventional shale resources are typically found in strongly anisotropic shales throughout the world. A growing body of knowledge suggests that only 25% of the areal extent of a shale reservoir is considered the “sweet spot.” While the course will be primarily focused on shales, discussions and learnings from tight sand reservoirs are also included. Emphasis will be placed on information and measurements derived from core and new technologies applied to the measurement of shale properties. Geochemical discussion will cover kerogen types, maturity, vitrinite reflection, Tmax, Langmuir isotherms, and pyrolysis analyses as well as newer FTIR methods. Newer technologies such as FTIR, BET, NMR, FIB/SEM as well as classical MICP, sonics are covered. A review of conventional log applications to shales will be complimented with new spectroscopic and NMR offerings. Log and lab based evaluation of geomechanical properties of shales are discussed as inputs to hydraulic fracture stimulation. A review of microseismic capabilities and learnings will be presented. Integration of these measurements into to a suggested evaluation workflow and an approach to field evaluation will be presented. New learnings highlight the heterogeneity of shale reservoirs.
