Did you know that the Gulf Coast Section is no longer the largest section in SPE? We are now Number Two, with the Saudi Arabia Section as Number One. Last year the SPE President was from Saudi Arabia, which pretty much explains the big push for SPE membership there. But this year, Shauna Noonan – a local Houston gal – is SPE President. So we need to have a big membership drive to put the Gulf Coast Section back into our rightful place as Number One SPE Section!

FIRST STEP:

Make sure you pay your 2020 SPE dues before December 31 so your membership does not lapse.

SECOND STEP:

Every local SPE member should convince a colleague at work that SPE membership is a wonderful thing, and it has contributed greatly to your career in the industry.

THEN & NOW DECEMBER 1953

Light oil flowing at 550 bbl per day from a rank wildcat 600 miles north of Perth promises to establish the first commercial oil production on the continent of Australia. The first deep test for oil in Israel is spudded near the former Biblical city of Sodom (ironically, adjacent to a large salt deposit).

U.S. active rig count: 2,885 East Texas crude: $2.90/bbl

DECEMBER 1977

The world deepwater drilling record (3,461 ft, offshore Thailand) is in jeopardy by upcoming wells planned for, would you believe… offshore Suriname and offshore Newfoundland! Exxon reports that good results from a test run on 16,000 tons of Texas lignite coal at South Africa’s huge coal-gasification complex could pave the way for a $2-$3 billion lignite SNG facility near Troup, Texas.

U.S. active rig count: 2,118

Glenn McCarthy had become the Lone Star playboy, the swinging oilman who romances starlets between trips on his airplane to see his latest gusher. In the post-war years, many of the stories fueling this caricature emanated from Hollywood, where McCarthy and other wealthy Texans, like the nouveau rich of every American generation, were drawn by the glamour and glitz and welcomed by money-hungry movie producers and a bevy of young actresses all too happy to take up with Texas sugar daddies. As a Hollywood columnist wrote in 1954,

Industry shells out big sums to pay for accidents: Shell pays $19.7 million in fines for spilling more than 9,500 bbl of crude from its Martinez refinery near San Francisco. Phillips’ insurance claims from an explosion and fire that claimed 23 lives at their Pasadena petrochemical plant reach $1.5 billion. Both events come on the heels of the North Sea Piper Alpha explosion that claimed 167 lives. Meanwhile, a barge carrying 119,000 bbl of jet fuel broke loose from a tug tow cable and drifted for several days in the Gulf of Alaska, dangerously close to reefs near Prince Williams Sound, before the tug regained control of the barge.

U. S. active rig count: 1,040 WTI crude: $19.92/bbl

THE REST OF THE YARN This month, the media’s coverage of McCarthy spawns a new cultural icon.

DECEMBER 1989

“The Texas jillionaires seem to gravitate to the motion pictures like a moth to a candle.” Among the first to arrive was Jack Wrather, a Dallas oil heir who, bored with life in the oil fields, moved to Los Angeles and married actress Bonita Granville in 1947. Wrather used his fortune to produce seven movies in the following several years, then branched into television, eventually producing Lassie and The Lone Ranger. In time, he purchased the Queen Mary entertainment complex in Long Beach, built the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, and became a founding member of Ronald Reagan’s “Kitchen Cabinet” of political advisors.

By and large, though, the Texas playboys took home far more actresses than Oscars. The starlet Jane Withers wed an Odessa oilman and would-be producer named Bill Moss in 1947. After their divorce, Moss married Ann Miller, who couldn’t cope with Moss and his hard-driving oilman buddies, whose lives were a series of drinking binges. “I simply didn’t have the energy or the patience to keep up with him, especially when we went to parties that lasted two or three days,” Miller wrote in her autobiography.

Next month, McCarthy and the legion of Lone Star playboys continues to grow.

INNOVATE Financing A Team & A Dream – Contemporary Issues Facing the Modern O&G Startup Thousands of wells are drilled and stimulated every year, with much data generated in the process. How can we use this information to develop our oil and gas fields most effectively? And will analytics and machine learning preclude the need for traditional scientific inquiry and modeling? In this discussion, two case studies are presented. In both plays, statistical analysis of large datasets did not suffice, forcing the creation of a technique in which hypotheses were scrutinized against the production data. The outcome was a step-change improvement in well performance in both plays, which provided confidence for a major investment decision. This methodology reminds us that the economic winners will be those that supplement data analytics and digitalization with human intelligence. The event includes an outstanding lineup of speakers, including Dan Pickering of Pickering Energy Partners as the keynote speaker.

PERMIAN BASIN Black Gold: One Man’s Story of Success in the Permian Basin

As major investors fled the area in the late 1980's, Dave H., an ex-Schlumberger logging engineer, bought a package of small overriding royalty and working interests in the Spraberry trend south of Midland. Minor production continued for several years, with Dave H. holding the leases that eventually became part of Pioneer Natural Resources’ large-scale operations. By 2015, Pioneer and partner Dave H. started a multi-well horizontal Wolfcamp drilling program. To date, 12 wells have been drilled on Dave’s acreage; all 12 have paid out and future drilling is planned. Dave’s small investment in 1987 has paid out several times and is now worth an order of magnitude over the purchase price.

NORTHSIDE Application of Machine Learning for Oil Production Forecasting One of the central questions in science is forecasting: based on the past history, how well can we predict the future? In many domains with complex multivariate correlation structures and nonlinear dynamics, forecasting is highly challenging. In the oil and gas industry, forecasting decline curves is an important component for E&P companies in business planning, asset evaluation, and decision making. Here we introduce a machine learning approach to tackle the problem, and to be more specific, an LSTM approach (LSTM stands for Long Short-Term Memory, which is one kind of recurrent neural network). Compared with the hyperbolic approach, the LSTM model is more dynamic and has a better chance of capturing non-linear events. We build the prediction model from the accumulated curve domain, and eventually ensemble multiple models to reduce the variance. Given the fact that the model is only trained on the first 3 months of data, the prediction for the first 2 years shows great promise.

COMPLETIONS AND PRODUCTION Multi-stage Completions for Hydraulic Fracturing – The Past, Present & Future From barefoot completions with one frac job to hundreds of individual fracture entry points in a cased well, there has been a rapid evolution of multistage completions in low-permeability reservoirs over the last decade, and it continues to evolve at a rapid pace. This presentation will go through this rapid evolution of multistage completions, current trends, and potential future trends. We will also discuss these influences and other factors that could continue the evolution, such as new technologies and techniques.

AARON BURTON Aaron Burton’s career has been focused on the completion of shales and similar unconventional plays that require multi-stage hydraulic fracturing. In 2015, Burton started Unconventional Oil and Gas Training, a company specializing in training and consulting for unconventional multistage completions. He is active author and instructor in the industry, authoring a chapter for an award-winning textbook, and teaching five SPE continuing education courses. He has also been a discussion leader, presenter, panelist, and participated in many other roles in industry events.

STUDY GROUP

GENERAL MEETING Practical Applications of a Remote Operations Center to Maximize Operational Efficiency Digital transformation programs have become a major improvement initiative within many oil and gas companies. Remote operations centers optimize production from wells, monitor facilities 24/7 and deliver support in near realtime. However, some companies are reluctant to challenge the traditional model. Co-location of operations, engineering and support into a single collaborative work environment are critical for accelerated decision making and near realtime support being delivered to the field. This presentation will share experience and case studies that demonstrate the capability of a remote operations center to improve the operational efficiency of an asset.

FREDERICK W. CLARK

Frederick Clark has a global track record with E&P operators and major service providers, leading projects within collaborative work environments, conducting assessments and developing and managing remote operations centers. His experience includes production optimization, well work justification, project management, developing failure databases and problem well reporting.

RESERVOIR Analysis of a Drained Rock Volume: An Eagle Ford Example This is a companion to URTeC 2670034, “Sampling a Stimulated Rock Volume: An Eagle Ford Example,” which detailed the nature of stimulated rock volume adjacent to a hydraulically fractured horizontal well. This paper reconciles the production performance of the central pilot well with far-field pressure monitor data to characterize the drained rock volume. Data from core, image logs, proppant tracer, distributed temperature and acoustic sensing, and pressure show that hydraulic fractures are not created equal. A novel reservoir model is constructed with consistent integration of the key interpretations, then compared to common production planar fracture models to assess potential impacts on cluster spacing and well spacing and stacking decisions.

WESTSIDE Non-Destructive Core Assessment Using Computed Tomography Rapid, non-destructive screening using high-definition imaging techniques now enables superior visualization and detailed quantitative core assessment. X-ray scanners, popularly known as Computed Tomography (CT) scanners, are used for such qualitative and quantitative descriptions of cores. Linking these data with a competent core database enables a robust empirical quantification of porosity and mechanical properties down to a millimeter scale. A multi-dimensional cluster analysis has been developed that can be used to categorize the cored intervals in petrophysical-properties facies. These descriptions and analyses are obtained before cores are “plugged,” thus avoiding any compromised fluid saturations. This early-time interpretation of rock properties enables geoscientists and engineers to quickly characterize the reservoir in a detailed and accurate manner.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Past Scholarship Winner: Brian A. Wilbanks The Scholarship Committee conducted a survey of past recipients of the SPEGCS scholarship. If you’re considering donating to the SPE-GCS scholarship fund or hiring an SPE-GCS scholarship winner, you’ll be glad to know that the program has enjoyed considerable success over the past six decades. Here is Brian A. Wilbanks’ story:

"Receiving the SPE scholarship was the beginning of my professional career and serves as its foundation to this day." My favorite memory of college was a 12-hour-long final exam for my petroleum engineer well testing class at the end of my junior year. We started the exam in the afternoon and finished late into the night. That evening was a good introduction to how much hard work and focus are necessary to persevere and be successful in the workforce. It's been an adventurous ride since receiving the SPE scholarship. My

earliest days in engineering were spent in the field learning how oilfield operations run and how to execute basic projects. I moved on to more technical engineering roles, such as designing new drill wells and new completions and facilities, and eventually moving into technical reserves consulting. After graduate school, my career shifted away from technical engineering work and moved toward commercial analysis and overall management. I worked in energy investment banking and eventually moved into the acquisitions and divestitures world, which is what I do today. Receiving the SPE scholarship was the beginning of my professional career and serves as its foundation to this day. I was given the opportunity to work in the internship program at Anadarko Petroleum before beginning college. The guidance, mentorship and exposure I received in that program absolutely shaped the outcome of my college years. My advice to today’s scholarship recipients is to always believe

CAREER OVERVIEW Senior Vice President, Acquisitions and Divestitures, Hilcorp • Texas A&M University, BS, Petroleum Engineering – 2002 • The University of Texas at Austin, MBA – 2010

in yourself and be prepared to constantly reinvent yourself. The energy business is constantly changing and evolving. Don't get comfortable and complacent. Take the road less travelled and always be a student of knowledge.

EDUCATION SPE-GCS High School STEM Education Tutoring Program: Volunteer Recognition The High School STEM Education Tutoring Program places engineers and scientists in high school science or math classrooms. Volunteer tutors help explain concepts to students and give them individual attention. Currently, about 30 volunteers are helping at 12 high schools in the Greater Houston area. This month, we're recognizing three volunteers who have been dedicated to the program for more than two years.

HUEY TANG - MATH VOLUNTEER, SPRING WOODS HIGH SCHOOL (SPRING BRANCH ISD) How did you get involved in this program? I started in-class tutoring for Algebra I at Spring Woods High School. I liked the flexible hours, as I can tutor at my convenience. I cooperate very closely with the teacher to help our students and still have the flexibility to attend to other responsibilities. What do you find most rewarding or enjoyable about the program? Many students at SWHS didn't have the opportunity to build a good math foundation in middle school and lack subject-matter support at home. The best feeling for me is when a student says, “Oh, I got it!” It's extremely rewarding to see my students pass their STAAR tests.

PAUL PITAKBUNKATE - PHYSICS VOLUNTEER, THE WOODLANDS COLLEGE PARK HIGH SCHOOL (CONROE ISD) How did you get involved in this program? My employer sent out an email about the program. I had recently graduated from college with my PhD in petroleum engineering. I was a TA and I like to teach, so I didn't hesitate to volunteer. What do you find most rewarding or enjoyable about the program? The first couple weeks were rough since students didn't know who I was and why I was there. But after that, they start calling my name and asking for help. The most rewarding aspect about the program is when the students show improvement.

HAL WELLS - PHYSICS VOLUNTEER, YATES HIGH SCHOOL (HOUSTON ISD) How did you get involved in this program? I got involved through a former Marathon employee. I was looking for a way to give back to the community and young folks and this fit nicely with that objective. I'm very concerned about the low number of kids showing interest in STEM classes and careers. What do you find most rewarding or enjoyable about the program? The most rewarding aspect has been the ability to share with the kids the fact that math and science do matter, that I used them every day of my career, and that engineering is a really cool field with very good job security – and you get to do good work that benefits society. Most of them are astounded to hear it.

MEMBERS IN TRANSITION (MiT) MiT Seminar Series #41:

Joint Meeting with the SPE Petro-Tech Study Group

The SPE Members in Transition Seminar Series is designed to include a selection of topics of interest to SPE members who are transitioning between jobs during the current industry downturn or looking for new career opportunities.

PROGRAM 1

Identifying and Promoting Your Unique Selling Points During Your Job Search

The only thing between you and your next great opportunity is someone who can sell their values, skills and accomplishments better than you to a potential employer. In this workshop, Tracey Kearny will explain techniques to develop an image that will differentiate you from the competition. She'll explain the process of image-building on paper, online and in interviews, and how to sell your product (YOU) effectively.

PROGRAM 2

TRACEY KEARNY Tracey Kearny is a career expert with a focus on outplacement and business/executive coaching. She partners with companies in the Houston and Louisiana markets to evaluate and implement responsible human capital solutions. Kearny received her psychology and communications degree from the University of North Texas.

A Strategy for Expanding Options

The difficulties in transitioning as a petroleum engineer today aren't very different from 30 years ago. It’s still hard, the competition is still fierce and you still have to generate business. In this workshop, we'll analyze what has worked in the past, see what we can learn from it and figure out how to apply it today. CARL DORÉ, JR. After working for a decade as a petroleum engineer, Carl Doré established a law firm practice more than 30 years ago that focuses on real estate, oil and gas, and litigation in those areas. He is a frequent speaker and writer on developments in the law that impact business decision-makers and entrepreneurs and he routinely helps form new corporations and limited liability companies.

PROGRAM 3

Technology Entrepreneurship in Oil & Gas

With the new focus on technology in oil and gas, we've seen a number of start-ups led by oil and gas professionals during this transition period. In this workshop, we'll discuss some fundamental issues that need to be looked at before you make the leap into entrepreneurship, including the latest trends in technology, your value proposition, why companies fail and what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. AMY HENRY, CPA/J.D. Amy Henry focuses on commercial, finance and new business development in the energy industry. She has more than 23 years of international upstream experience in North America, Europe and Southeast Asia. Her company, Eunike Ventures, is a hybrid accelerator that provides hands-on support to selected start-ups, connecting them with an extensive network of subject matter experts, advisors and investors.

STUDENT CHAPTERS FEBRUARY 2019

DECEMBER 2019

Fall Semester Events at Texas A&M University This October offered several high-impact events hosted by our student chapter. We joined with the student chapter of the American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) in opening the month with an annual rig tour field trip, hosted by Patterson-UTI. We also hosted a wireline truck visit with Schlumberger, who brought some of their tools to campus and shared their experiences with students. We hosted our pioneering “Aggies Invent: Energy,” a 48-hour design competition where students work in multidisciplinary teams within the Fischer ’72 Engineering Design Center. The Center offers 60,000 sq. ft. of design space, including a full machine shop, 3D printers and a stock of electronics for developing prototypes. As part of our Executive Series, we had the privilege of hosting Mr. Darren Woods, ’87, CEO of Exxon Mobil and a former Aggie. Mr. Woods shared his career experiences and offered motivation and advice for students, both on career development and the industry overall. For this semester's merchandise sales, we offered various designs of clothing and apparel, designed largely based on student feedback and demand. For the home football games this month, (Alabama and Ole Miss), we hosted two tailgate events, which are another member favorite, as they offer a more informal social platform. We conducted philanthropy events, including “Replant Day,” where members volunteered to help sustain the environment. As we close out another year, we congratulate our graduating seniors and wish all Aggies best of luck with finals and a happy holiday season!
