CHAIR’S CORNER

JUNE 2020

GABRIELLE MORROW 2019-2020 SPE-GCS Chair A Virtual GCS I am pleased to announce one of our goals this year is finally complete. The Gulf Coast Section has added an online content library to its website platform. Over time, we plan to build this library into a robust learning center that is applicable to all of our SPE members. The library can be found online at spegcs.org/on-demand-content-library/. I encourage everyone to look at this new learning outreach site and create a bookmark on your browser so you can easily find courses of interest. This content library is in addition to the webinars our study groups and committees offer. The funds raised from our online library will go toward our Scholarship Endowment Fund, and directly assist local high school students attending university who wish to pursue careers in the oil and gas industry. Most of our initial library content is geared toward our Members in Transition (MiT). Through these volatile times, please know that if you change careers or suffer from a layoff, SPE is still here for you. Our members are important to us, through good times and bad. If you have experienced a layoff or are currently going through furloughed employment, reach out to our MiT Committee. The committee hosts two job career fairs each year, as well as low-cost webinars and classes to help our members navigate uncertain times. The next MiT career fair will be held this fall, and I encourage our GCS members to visit our website for more details.

One of our flagship events, Roughneck Camp, is coming up in June. Roughneck Camp is hosted by our phenomenal Young Professionals Committee and will be a completely virtual, one-day event. Coordinating such an event, with multiple speakers at different timeslots and hundreds of attendees, is no small task. Our GCS volunteers continue to deliver as much education and technical content as possible, in spite of the roadblocks and challenges we have faced as a community from the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost 15 years ago, I chaired and organized Roughneck Camp when I was on the Young Professionals Committee; I cannot believe how time has flown and how the event has changed with this new virtual initiative. I encourage all GCS members to sign up for this event. We are experiencing enormous change within our industry. Whether driven by demand, price, safety or health considerations, we can and will make adjustments to keep the energy industry going. We always manage to deliver, regardless of the task or challenge ahead. To register for the Young Professionals Roughneck Camp, please visit spegcs.org/events/4604/.

Until next month, Gabrielle Morrow

STUDY GROUP

NORTHSIDE

Webinar: Tight Oil EOR through Inter-Fracture Gas Flooding within a Single Horizontal Well

Tight oil production has become significant over the last decade with the success of horizontal drilling and multistage hydraulic fracturing. However, the recovery factor from this process is very low, and no standard secondary recovery method exists after primary depletion. This talk envisions a new secondary recovery method: to use existing hydraulic fractures in a horizontal well as gas injection and oil production sites to conduct gas flooding within a single well. Key aspects have been defined and examined and show promising results. Inter-fracture flooding June become a standard secondary recovery technique for tight oil reservoirs and add significant reserves.

XUEBING FU Xuebing Fu is a petroleum engineer consultant in Casper, WY. Her career began in 2012 as a reservoir engineer at BP, where she focused on heavy oil technology. In 2015, Fu became a lecturer at the University of Wyoming, where she began examining tight oil EOR opportunities and independently proposed the concept of Single Well Inter-Fracture Flooding (SWIFF) in 2017. Fu holds a PhD in petroleum engineering and an MS in chemistry from Texas A&M University.

WESTSIDE

Webinar: Monitoring the Pulse of a Well through Sealed Wellbore Pressure Monitoring

A breakthrough pressure monitoring technique using an offset sealed wellbore as a monitoring source has enabled the quantifying of hydraulic fracturing cluster efficiencies in real-time. Sealed Wellbore Pressure Monitoring (SWPM) is a lowcost, non-intrusive method used to evaluate and quantify fracture growth rates and fracture-driven interactions during hydraulic fracturing, and measurements can be made with only a surface pressure gauge on a monitor well. The technique has been validated using low-frequency Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) strain monitoring, microseismic monitoring, video-based downhole perforation imaging and production logging. This webinar presentation will review multiple SWPM case studies collected in the Anadarko Basin (Meramec) and the Permian Delaware Basin (Wolfcamp and Leonard/Avalon).

KYLE HAUSTVEIT

Kyle Haustveit is a completions engineer in a centralized subsurface group at Devon Energy, where he focuses on completions design, fracture modeling and diagnostic program design and interpretation. Haustveit received a BS in petroleum engineering from Montana Tech and an MBA in energy from the University of Oklahoma. He has authored multiple technical papers and filed multiple patents related to offset pressure monitoring during hydraulic stimulation.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Webinar: The Data-Centric Skillset: Staying Relevant in the New Industry

Following gradual herd-thinning over the past several years, the oil and gas industry has experienced sudden major shocks, drastically accelerating the trend. The firms faring best are data-centric – capable of capturing, organizing and utilizing data to drive efficiency and innovation. Nimble, entrepreneurial and results-driven, these firms are expanding their footprint while their less sophisticated counterparts recede. This is the new industry, and the oil and gas workforce must adapt traditional skillsets to remain relevant. For SPE members in transition, those preparing to enter the workforce, and those concerned about the changing landscape, this is a time to invest in bolstering your data-centric skillset.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Past Scholarship Winner: Haley Cole 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 Haley Cole’s story:

I’ve rotated through the different engineering disciplines to learn the importance of each group and the impact they have on each other. It’s been a great experience filled with a variety of field work experiences, varied responsibilities and opportunities to expand my learning on valuable technical topics.

"The SPE scholarship provided me with financial peace in college so I didn’t have to work or worry about finances."

The SPE scholarship provided me with financial peace in college so I didn’t have to work or worry about finances. It presented me with the opportunity for a pre-college internship with Anadarko, which was a good introduction to the oil and gas industry. I also worked in summer internships for Alta Mesa in completions, and for EOG in production and completions engineering internships.

My favorite memories from college include taking a rock properties class with Dr. Ramona Graves and being inducted into Pi Epsilon Tau. Rock properties was challenging, but Dr. Graves is well-respected in the industry and taught me the fundamentals of petroleum engineering. Pi Epsilon Tau is a prestigious society with selection based on character, merit, GPA and interviews. Being inducted was a privilege and an honor. I joined EOG Resources almost two years ago, and

My advice to today’s SPE-GCS scholarship students is that internships are key! They allow you to apply the knowledge you learn in school and give you context on which topics are most important and how they apply in the real world. Also, find a mentor who is technical, honest with you and who pushes

STUDENT CHAPTERS

MAY 2020 RECAP This month, TAMU-SPE continued to adhere to prescribed social distancing guidelines, while still hosting online webinar events. We offered a training course on unconventional oil and gas free of cost to our members, which covered multistage hydraulic fracturing concepts and applications. Our R&D series, through which we invite industry technical leaders to share their expertise on the latest technologies, was converted to a webinar format. We had the pleasure of hosting representatives from Baker Hughes to speak on reservoir navigation and geosteering solutions, and representatives from Devon Energy, who addressed wellbore pressure pulse monitoring technology. Our members benefited immensely from these technical development opportunities. We concluded our online merchandise sale for the semester and transitioned roles to the next team of officers and directors. During these challenging times, we also introduced a new volunteering program for our members to tutor elementary and middle school students in the Bryan and College Station area, in a webinar format. This initiative is valuable to SPE’s role in serving our community. Lastly, as we conclude the semester, we congratulate our May 2020 graduates and wish them every success in their forthcoming careers. We wish our other members best of luck on their internships – and for everyone to stay safe.
