CHAIR’S CORNER

FEBRUARY 2020

GABRIELLE MORROW 2020-2020 SPE-GCS Chair TEAM BUILDING Many operations within our industry require a team effort in order for us to achieve our goals. From drilling to production to refining, multiple people have a hand in getting a single barrel of oil out of the ground to its final refined product. Our ability to harness a talented team of professionals with various backgrounds and disciplines is constantly tested. Successful teams often portray a sense of loyalty and purpose that increases their productivity, work ethic and above all else, communication. Communication is often cited as the number one cause for work, productivity and safety failures, while companies that focus on teamwork and collaboration within their groups are shown to have greater efficiency, creativity and overall employee satisfaction. There is an evergreen phrase, "A chain is only as strong as the weakest link." We can easily adapt this phrase to say, "A team is only as strong as the weakest player." If I were to ask you to look internally at your own team, would you be able to identify both the strengths and weaknesses of yourself and your teammates? Would you know the strengths and weaknesses of your teammates without having worked or interacted with them? Would you feel comfortable sharing your own strengths and weaknesses with your team?

When was the last time that your team or group had a team building exercise? Oftentimes, we find ourselves too busy to organize something for our team, which is why the SPE Gulf Coast Section decided to fill the void in our industry. Last year, the GCS launched its inaugural TopGolf tournament with tremendous success. More than 400 oil and gas professionals joined together from all disciplines and experience levels to network and promote team-building concepts. Being able to work together as teammates in a non-work environment allows us to come together to share common goals and achieve success, in and out of the workplace. If you would like to register yourself or a full team, please go to the registration page: spegcs.org/events/4631/ If you would like to sponsor one of the largest events that the GCS offers, please see the following page on our website: spegcs.org/events/4531/ If you would like to know more about the benefits associated with teamwork and collaboration, visit this great website: blog.bit.ai/collaboration-statistics/

Until next month, Gabrielle Morrow

In order to obtain the confidence and trust that's needed to share our vulnerabilities, we need to build a relationship with one another and bond with our fellow teammates. If we don’t have an avenue to work on self-improvement or to improve our team, how can we successfully pursue our goals and reach our performance metrics? I encourage all of us to continually evaluate the strength and weaknesses of ourselves and the teams we work with. This evaluation can yield opportunities to positively progress our workflows and accomplish both our personal and company goals.

THE REST OF THE YARN This month, McCarthy endures a series of makeor-break meetings with his creditors. All through the early months of 1950, McCarthy endured a series of difficult meetings with his creditors in Houston and New York. When Metropolitan ordered a new estimate of McCarthy’s oil and gas reserves, it was stunned to find they were down by almost two-thirds in several key fields. While McCarthy blamed the drop on foreign oil, Metropolitan’s engineers deduced that the greatest damage to the reserves had been administered by McCarthy himself. In his rush to raise cash, he had pumped so much natural gas so quickly that well pressures could not be maintained, rendering wells less productive, and in some cases,

no longer productive at all. Auditors uncovered telltale hints of financial chicanery. Wells had been completed and put on McCarthy’s books when it was doubtful they would ever produce commercial quantities of oil or gas. The lesser wells – whether weak from the start or crippled by McCarthy’s haste – had been abandoned in droves without his telling the creditors. Behind closed doors, executives at Equitable and Metropolitan Life pondered whether to foreclose. They ultimately decided against it, fearing the public relations nightmare of crippling a Texas legend, and at the same time, realizing that the Shamrock, if run properly, might yet turn a profit. In May 1950, McCarthy hammered out a deal in which Metropolitan ponied up an additional $6 million in cash in exchange for liens on his New Ulm

field. Equitable, however, was out of patience, and its board decided the only way to bring McCarthy’s spending under control was to take control itself – gradually and in private, so as not to antagonize McCarthy or those in Texas who regarded him as a hero. Months of secret meetings culminated in a signed agreement in which McCarthy reluctantly ceded complete control over his oil fields to Equitable for 10 years, as well as the Shamrock and just about everything else he owned. McCarthy would still run things, but under the watchful eye of a comptroller Equitable brought in to oversee his finances.

Next month, the deal quickly falls apart, and McCarthy is ousted as president of his companies.

GENERAL MEETING

Leveraging Automation in Drilling to Optimize Well Construction

The well construction process has traditionally been a manual one: Personnel are required in the same area as moving equipment, drillers are expected to control all of their equipment and set parameters manually, and the use of predictive algorithms to mitigate issues has been limited. This presentation will discuss technologies that ExxonMobil and suppliers have been working to develop to enhance the well construction process, including on-bottom drilling, automated pipe handling and others. The presentation will cover early lessons learned and industry barriers and limitations for scaling these technologies across a broad spectrum of operations.

JONATHAN BARRY

Jonathan Barry has 13 years of experience in instrumentation and controls and facilities engineering with ExxonMobil. His expertise includes drilling control system design, production facility and control system design, installation and commissioning, and production operations support.

Challenging the Paradigms for the Selection and Use of Polymers in Environmentally Sensitive Areas

Environmental stewardship and sustainability are growing concerns around the globe, and regulatory enforcement is spreading. One primary mode of enforcement is the establishment of ecotoxicological standards for chemical usage. The current paradigm was established using methods developed for wastewater treatment and consumer contact, however, these lack the exposure context of oil and gas operations. These standards can be nearly impossible to satisfy for polymeric materials that are widely used in the oilfield. Increased flexibility would allow relevant exposure scenarios in the required testing to evaluate the environmental impact of a substance appropriately. Examples of some suggested methods to design and select polymeric materials in the current regulatory schemes will be discussed.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

The Great Reset: The Outlook for Oil and Gas M&A

Two years ago, investors told public oil and gas companies that they were not going to continue to support high growth, deficit spending, and poor investment returns. After a generally disappointing performance during the shale boom, investors told the companies they have to focus on living within cash flow and providing strong returns. This change rippled through the business, impacting pubic company valuations, private capital perspectives, capital spending, and deal flow. Combined with a weak outlook for commodity prices, concerns over upcoming debt maturations, worries about tariffs, and general lack of optimism, the US oil and gas business has slowed considerably. In a historically cyclical business, this will create opportunities, but companies will need to navigate this environment slowly and cautiously. Bill Marko will talk about the past, the present, what current trends mean for future activity levels, and deal flow.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Enabling Gas-EOR in Fractured Reservoirs with Foam Assisted Conformance Control

An immiscible hydrocarbon foam (HC-Foam) enhanced oil recovery (EOR) pilot has been designed and implemented in a hydraulically fractured tight reservoir in the Texas Woodbine field. The pilot, a partnership between MDAE and Dow, met all of the success criteria: mobility and injectivity control, out of zone injection elimination, fluid diversion to bypassed areas, increased oil production rates, increased gas utilization ratio, better volumetric sweep, and sustained production after stopping surfactant injection. Increased oil production was sustained for at least for six weeks after the surfactant injection period. Current work confirms the technical efficacy and potential of the gaseous foam conformance solution for incremental oil production in unconventional plays.

AMIT KATIYAR

Amit Katiyar is an EOR specialist in gaseous foam and wettability alteration technologies. His expertise lies in developing and implementing conventional and unconventional EOR technologies from laboratory to fields through lab evaluation, modeling, simulation and reservoir engineering.

Buckskin Deepwater Development: LLOG’s Development Approach & Industry Firsts

In 2016, LLOG Exploration Company become operator of Buckskin, their first deepwater Wilcox development. The project was executed six months ahead of schedule and under budget and has produced at the 30,000 BOPD reserved capacity. The subsea development includes several firsts for LLOG and the deepwater Wilcox. Accomplishments include setting the Gulf of Mexico singlewell proppant record, as well as the record for most proppant pumped in a single zone. The presentation will describe LLOG’s approach to the development and cover reservoir continuity using formation pressures, reservoir fluid geodynamics and oil geochemistry. Initial production data will be shared along with conclusions on reservoir quality and productivity.

JON WOOD

Jon Wood joined LLOG in 2013 as a reservoir engineer and has recently been focused on the company's portfolio of Wilcox assets, including Buckskin, Moccasin and Leon.

Wood holds a BA in physics and an MS in mechanical engineering.

RESERVOIR

Leveraging Reservoir Modeling Workflows with Computing and AI

Machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and data science already have a great impact on our lives. This revolution has been driven by the collection of large amounts of data and the availability of software tools. Given the success of AI, it would be fair to ask how it has impacted aspects of the oil and gas industry, and more specifically, reservoir simulation technology. We'll discuss the typical characteristics of a successful AI application to assess which have a good chance of success and demonstrate an example where computer vision is combined with reservoir simulation to address a reservoir history matching problem.

COMPLETIONS AND PRODUCTION

Examples of Forces Not Accounted for by the Wave Equation

Mechanical friction, piston force and true vertical rod weight are not accounted for by the wave equation. However, these external forces acting on the rod string impact measured surface loads, downhole stroke length and plunger velocity, plus the calculated rod loading at the pump or other locations along the rod string. With the current drilling and operating practices of deviated and/or horizontal wells, historical recommendations for "trouble-free" operating conditions may no longer be applicable. This presentation will provide new recommendations for drilling that should provide better, longer-term, less problematic wells.

FEBRUARY 2020

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

"The SPE-GCS scholarship helped me land my first internship at Shell and in turn, made me want to pursue and gain other internships throughout my collegiate career." My memorable moments in college included many SPE events, from tailgates, sporting clays and golf tournaments to mini lectures and presentations with professionals. At school, I was the SPE Sporting Clays Chairman; we hosted events and networked with industry professionals. I joined my company's college recruitment team to help incoming students recognize the

importance of networking, being in professional organizations and doing well in school. Out of school, I worked as a field engineer for FTS International, followed by a completions engineering role at Chesapeake Energy. I've now formed a company called Contour Energy, dealing with pipelines and storage. The SPE-GCS scholarship helped me land my first internship at Shell and in turn, made me want to pursue and gain other internships throughout my collegiate career. My advice to students: First, congratulations on being a scholarship winner! This is a significant event in your budding career.

STUDENT CHAPTERS

FEBRUARY 2020

University of Houston Fall Recap Houston Food Bank Volunteer Event UH SPE collaborated with petroleum engineering organizations SPWLA and PiET to support our community by volunteering and preparing school lunches. All members participated in prepping lunches that went to our local school children. From making pizzas to packing baby carrots and grapes, everyone pitched in to provide as many meals as possible. We had a great sense of teamwork between organizations and hope to repeat this rewarding experience. Patterson-UTI Rig Tour UH SPE was invited to a rig tour at the Patterson-UTI Rig-Up Yard. Members had the chance to gear up their steel-toe boots, hard hats and safety glasses to tour a walking rig. It was an excellent opportunity to put into perspective what's seen in the classroom. Seeing everything up close and having all our questions answered was an incredibly valuable learning experience. Derrick Equipment Company Solids Control Tour Our members had the opportunity to participate in the most hands-on tour we've been offered! During this tour, students got their hands dirty and saw equipment from the front row. This is another experience that helped us better understand how what we learn in the classroom works in the real world. Artificial Lift & Production Optimization Workshop UH SPE hosted an Artificial Lift & Production Optimization workshop for our members, led by Dr. Anand Nagoo from Proline Energy Resources Inc. Students learned about different artificial lift solutions and related production optimization tools that are available in the petroleum industry. It was a great opportunity to learn more in depth from experts in the industry. Networking for Career Success in Oil and Gas UH SPE had the pleasure of hosting this event with guest speaker Carla Fontenot. Mrs. Fontenot has more than 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and spoke about successful networking techniques and skills. She talked about her own experiences in the industry and shared valuable information that will help students with their career development.

UH vs Navy Tailgate UH SPE joined AADE UH for some tasty food and music and to socialize with other organizations and support the Houston Cougars! Game Night Social Event All petroleum engineering organization board members, including SPE, AADE, PiET and SPWLA, got together for game night to celebrate the end of a successful semester. We had some friendly competition going on in a variety of games, including bowling, billiards, table tennis and arcade machines. It was a nice way to let off some steam and be rewarded for all our hard work. End of Fall Semester Board Meeting Our board got together one last time at the end of the fall semester. We said goodbye and congratulated our graduated board members, as well as thanked everyone for their hard work. It was an emotional meeting as we looked back at an outstanding semester and looked forward to an even better one coming up!
