CHAIR’S CORNER

MAY 2020

GABRIELLE MORROW 2019-2020 SPE-GCS Chair Keep Going I truly believe that the people working in the oil and gas industry have to be some of the most resilient people on earth. The amount of volatility in our market leaves no room for people with a weak stomach. We have to be tough. It is never about if we will see another downturn. It is always about when. We know there will be downturns in our industry. We know there will be many difficult challenges to face. But in times like this, please remember that we fuel the world. We improve the quality of life for millions of people on the planet because we supply them with energy. With the current situation we are in, the coronavirus has tested our abilities to work in a safe but productive manner. Unfortunately, we now have a tremendous oversupply of oil that just recently led to a negative price on the NYSE oil index for the first time in history. That is terrifying to a person currently working in the oil industry. I wonder how this moment in time will be viewed 5, 10, or even 20 years from now. It makes me curious about previous crashes in our industry.

What were people thinking in the late 1970’s energy crisis when they had to wait in line for hours just to get a tank of gas? After 1979, oil went on a 6-year decline. I bet that window in history felt like a long time to the people working in our industry. Is our experience today similar or different than those moments in time? I certainly do not want this to last 6 years, but it helps to give me perspective that our industry has been through tough patches before. The technology that our industry creates is second to none. We rival the NASA Space Program and the Silicon Valley tech industry each and every day. I always found it entertaining when people got excited about cars that could drive themselves. I imagine trying to get through the Galleria traffic at rush hour in a self-driving car, relying on technology to ‘see where I am going.’ I then realize that the oil and gas industry has been using technology to help us navigate what we can’t see for years. It’s called drilling. I encourage everyone to keep going. We can’t see what is ahead of us, but remember we do something similar in our jobs every day, whether it is drilling, completions, or reservoir. Keep your heads up. Keep working hard. We will get through this. Until next month, Gabrielle Morrow

THEN & NOW MAY 2002

Rotary steerable, directionaldrilling systems increased the rate of penetration and, in the process, saved 100 days of rig time when used to drill complex 3D well paths in the 12.25in. and 8.5-in. hole sections of North Sea Jotan field wells, compared to conventional directional-drilled wells. The Nile Delta and Mediterranean deepwater trend along the northern coastline of Egypt is proving to be an emerging giant gas province with an estimated 36 trillion cubic feet of gas, and ideally situated for markets in the Mediterranean region. (This is a very “noble” development.)

MAY 2009

Operators are actively involved in testing new biocides to determine the best chemical for controlling bacteria introduced in Barnett shale frac source waters, including rivers, lakes, oilfield wastewater, and recycled frac water. Fracked Barnett wells have been plagued by biogenic sulfide plugging and corrosion failures of downhole equipment, separators and storage tanks resulting from bacterial contamination. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, in an attempt to bolster his socialist spending programs, has now nationalized nearly 40 domestic and international oil service companies operating in his country, with another 20 under threat.

MAY 2016

It's reported that just 12 billion BOE of estimated recoverable reserves were discovered from conventional wells outside of North America in 2015, representing the lowest level since 1952. Alaska’s congressional delegation calls on US Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to keep three federal offshore oil and gas lease sales in waters off the state’s coast in the 2017-22 US Outer Continental Shelf program currently being prepared.

THE REST OF THE YARN This month, can McCarthy beat the oil importers at their own game? Rumors that McCarthy was mounting some kind of mysterious Middle Eastern excursion were already swirling when he abruptly disappeared from Houston in early November 1951. “McCarthy on Mystery Oil Junket,” read the Houston Post’s front-page story, which speculated that McCarthy might be heading to Egypt to hire the famous belly dancer Samia Gamal, who had just married a Texas playboy named Sheppard King III.

A few days later, reporters trailed McCarthy to Paris, where he was staying at the Hotel George V with Howard Hughes' one-time PR man Johnny Meyer. Each morning, a new round of speculation erupted in Houston: Where was McCarthy going – and what was he up to? The answer came when a wire-service reporter spotted him in Cairo and McCarthy admitted that he was there to look at the prospect of obtaining an oil concession in the Middle East, though he wouldn’t say where. “You can rule out Iran and Saudi Arabia,” his PR man whispered. A week later, McCarthy resurfaced, again in Cairo, grumping about an Egyptian law mandating that at least 51 percent

of any Egyptian oil company be owned by Egyptians. All that winter he engaged in a frenzy of would-be-deal-making, a plan to build a string of Shamrocks across America, a hotel in Guatemala and another in Venezuela. To top it all off – and to have any hope of financing his fanciful schemes, not one of which ever saw the light of day – McCarthy announced he was starting a new oil company and intended to sell its shares to the public on the New York Stock Exchange.

Next month, has McCarthy outlived his usefulness?

STUDY GROUP

PERMIAN BASIN

Webinar: What Comes Next? Why Russia and Saudi’s Decision Changed Everything

On January 1, 2020, the world consumed 100 mmbo/d of oil – then there was the reaction to the coronavirus. With travel restrictions, quarantines and employees working from home, demand for fuel and petroleum byproducts has plummeted. This talk will focus on the black swan event and its implications, and look at the demand side and how COVID-19 is disrupting life. Secondly, we will look at the supply side where Russia and OPEC+ partners are pumping more oil. (In April, they were adding at least 1.3 mmbo/d to their production levels and Russia is within 200 mbo/d of their high all-time high.) This talk will then shift to what the US response has been and what it should be.

DAVID RAMSDEN-WOOD David Ramsden-Wood was co-founder and COO of OneEnergy Partners, which was sold in 2018. He began his career in energy in 2001 as a reservoir engineer with Anadarko.

STUDY GROUP

WESTSIDE

Webinar: Right-Sizing Cluster and Stage Count Using eXtreme Limited Entry Completions

Limited entry perforating has been around for over 50 years, however, its effectiveness has been limited in the horizontal revolution due to insufficient perforation friction relative to the variability in stress and near-wellbore tortuosity within a stage. It has been shown that the published trends correlating stage count to early life productivity throughout the shale revolution are fundamentally linked to the number of active fracture initiation points per stage. By driving significantly more active clusters per stage with extreme limited entry (XLE) completions in combination with high density perforating (HDP), it has become possible to reduce stage count without sacrificing performance.

PAUL WEDDLE

Paul Weddle is the completion manager for Liberty Resources II LLC, a Denver-based operator in the Bakken Shale of North Dakota. Weddle graduated from the University of Texas and began his career working for Shell, hydraulically fracturing tight gas formations in Wyoming. Since then, he has completed vertical and horizontal wells in unconventional oil and gas reservoirs in Utah, North Dakota, Texas and Oklahoma, along with authoring several SPE papers.

COMPLETIONS AND PRODUCTION

Webinar: Detecting Induced Fractures Using Drilling Data

This talk will describe a novel process that uses standard drilling data obtained during the drilling of an infill well to identify induced hydraulic fractures created during the stimulation of a legacy well. This method involves analyzing the amount of energy expended during the drilling of an infill well, as areas that contain a localized depletion take slightly more energy to drill through as compared to the surrounding rocks. Mapping areas of depletion most often associated with fractures allows operators to gain insight into fracture growth and depletion patterns. Avoiding these areas of localized depletion during completion has also significantly mitigated fracture interactions.

KEVIN WUTHERICH

Kevin Wutherich has 22 years of industry experience, both as an operator and in the service industry. He is the lead inventor on seven patents related to fracturing procedures and tools. Wutherich has authored numerous SPE papers and industry publications, primarily focused on shale completions. In 2018, he received the World Oil Awards “Best Completion Technology” for his development of the revolutionary engineered diversion technique.

STUDENT CHAPTERS

MAY 2020

APRIL 2020 RECAP Student Paper Contest 2020 Pre-Selection Students of the petroleum engineering department had the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge through written research reports and presentations, and nominated students will be representing the University of Houston in the regional competition at Texas A&M. This was a valuable experience that helped display the hard work of many students, including both undergraduates and graduates. Oil and Gas Career Fair SPE UH was joined by the petroleum engineering honor society Pi Epsilon Tau (PiET) and the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) to bring to students a range of employers looking for full-time and internship positions! This career fair was specifically oil and gas related and open to all majors. It was a very successful event that is sure to be repeated to aid the success of our members. Panel Discussion: How to Succeed in R&D Positions in Oil & Gas Companies UH SPE hosted a panel discussion with Chevron Fellow Dr. Xian-Huan Wen and Stepan R&D Manager Dr. Alhad Phatak, who shared their decades of experience as R&D innovators, influencers and leaders. They provided insightful tips on how to succeed in R&D positions in oil and gas companies.

Houston Food Bank As members of the Houston community, we make sure to give back in a fun and rewarding way!

Our meeting with Mr. Stice was conducted in the form of a “fireside chat” interview setting, in which students gained valuable advice on leadership and perspective on the course of our industry.

• The program is delivered entirely online through Google Hangouts, with video, audio and chat. • The participating student must have access to a reliable internet connection, a Google account and a computer with a working video camera and microphone. The use of a headset is recommended. Cost

• This service is offered to students free of charge. Duration

• The program is being offered from April 6, 2020, through the last day of the 2019-2020 school term, or earlier, as agreed upon between the volunteer tutor and parent/guardian. Terms of Use

• The parent/guardian must acknowledge the terms of use in order to use this service. • The program is offered on a first come, first served basis, and is subject to tutor availability.

In line with social distancing guidelines, regrettably, most other events planned for this month had to be cancelled. However, we were able to host an R&D series event on Geosteering, featuring experts from Baker Hughes, in our first webinar. Going forward, we plan to host several of our smaller-scale events using this format. We would like to highlight that our merchandise sale this semester is open to all current and former TAMU-SPE members and features an exciting collection of clothing and apparel. This month, we also welcome our newly elected officer team for the 2020-21 academic year. Lastly, we encourage all our members and the community to follow social distancing guidelines and hope everyone stays safe through these challenging times.

Parent/Guardian Sign Up

• Once the parent or guardian has acknowledged the terms of use and signed up, a volunteer tutor will reach out with further details. Click here to sign up.
