TIGHT OIL CANADA CONGRESS 2013
Innovative completions techniques and the identification of hot new shale prospects are transforming the landscape of tight oil production in the Western Canadian Sedimentary basin. More of the reservoir is being accessed than ever before and as a result, the potential for stimulating wells at better economic returns is becoming a reality for many of the most pioneering operators in the region.
In light of the Cardium boasting oil production of almost 100,000 bbl/d in 2012, the growing list of recently discovered emerging prospects such as the Second White Specks, Canol and Montney Oil Window, not to mention the revered Duvernay oil play which has been touted as the next boom play in North America, its clear the Western Sedimentary Basin's prolific potential is just waiting to be unlocked.
To capitalize on the lucrative prospects available, more cost effective completions techniques and more conclusive exploration and production data on emerging prospects are needed.
The Tight Oil Canada Congress, Canada's leading unconventional oil and gas initiative, is returning for its third year to Calgary on June 24-26 to deliver well data and the key hydraulic fracturing techniques being used to drive down the costs of exploitation.
The Mission Of Tight Oil Canada 2013:
The mission of the third annual congress is three fold. Firstly, executive E&P speakers at the congress will provide cost effective solutions for achieving effective stimulation through the adoption of tried and tested completions techniques in the established Bakken, Cardium and Viking plays:
See DAY 1 AGENDA: COMPLETIONS TECHNIQUES
Secondly, early data from hot emerging shale and tight oil prospects in Western Canada will be examined and analyzed to assess the feasibility of developing untapped areas and identifying areas of high production potential:
See DAY 2 AGENDA: EMERGING SHALE PLAYS
Finally, a full day is dedicated to the Duvernay play, assessing risk, well data and techniques for cost effectively exploiting Western Canada's most hotly anticipated play:
See DAY 3 AGENDA: THE DUVERNAY
'Very good focus on the topic'
LEARNING BENEFITS 2013:
The On-Going Economic Exploitation Of Canada's Lucrative Tight Oil Resources Requires...
...a thorough understanding of reservoir characterization and how to complete wells more cost effectively in Canada's current and future resource plays.
The sell-out Tight Oil Canada Congress 2013 is now returning to Calgary with a brand new agenda and learning content, delivering three days of case studies on the hottest issues in Canadian tight oil to date:
DAY 1: COMPLETIONS
Matching Rock Characteristics In The Viking, Bakken And Cardium With Completions Design To Ensure Economic Reservoir Stimulation And Drive Down The Cost Of Production
DAY 2: EMERGING SHALE PLAYS
Second White Specks, Slave Point, Canol, Swan Hills, The Montney Oil Window & Bakken Torquay
Driving The On Going Search For New Unconventional Resources In Western Canada To Capture Early Land Positions And Determine How To Exploit Previously Untapped Plays
DAY 3: THE DUVERNAY
Examining How The Unique Reservoir Characteristics And Depths Of The Duvernay Are Impacting Frac Economics And Identifying Optimal Completions Techniques For Economically Exploiting The Play's Liquid Rich Resources
WHAT'S NEW FOR 2013?...
COMPLETION ECONOMICS FOCUS:
Identifying the key cost drivers of completing wells in the Western Sedimentary Basin to identify areas of cost reduction during fracing
Evaluating the optimal well spacing, lateral length, frac stages, spacing, length and size to ensure effective drainage of the reservoir
Evaluating the decline curves in Canada's tight oil reservoirs and measuring the success of operations through comparison of expected to actual production results
Critical analysis of the Duvernay's reservoir characteristics and how this impacts methods of drilling and completions optimization within the play
SECOND WHITE SPECKS ANALYSIS:
Defining the rock types across the formation to identify the potential for commercial completions
SLAVE POINT & CANOL ANALYSIS:
Providing an economic evaluation of completions and geology and identifying solutions for drilling in these high pressure plays
SWAN HILLS AND MONTNEY OIL WINDOW ANALYSIS:
Matching fracing techniques to the petrophysical characteristics of the plays to achieve completions optimization
