CHAIR’S CORNER

OCTOBER 2020

Simeon Eburi 2020-2021 SPE-GCS Chair SPE Volunteerism During Unprecedented Times I was asked a few months ago why SPE-GCS charges a registration fee for its webinars. Shouldn’t webinars or virtual events be free if there’s no in-person networking or lunch provided? If someone is attending from the comfort of their couch at home, should they pay? These are all relevant questions. I will share a few thoughts on event finances, the scholarship program and volunteering with SPE. SPE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. SPE-GCS relies on the proceeds from events organized by volunteers to operate, carry out the mission of SPE and support the scholarship program. During great times, the section benefits from strong sponsorship support from companies. Sponsorships help balance our event revenue and expenses, lower registration fees and allow our events to be more profitable. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and during industry downturns, we receive fewer or smaller sponsorships, and event registrations also decline. The section has less funds to operate and fund scholarships. Not keeping our commitment to students and their families would be unacceptable. The section is very proud of its scholarship program. It provides up to four-year scholarships for high school seniors in the Houston area who attend US universities to pursue petrotech (engineering, geology, etc.) and other STEM degrees. The program also provides scholarships for at-risk students in the Houston area in partnership with Communities In Schools of Houston (CISH). In the past, the section supported over 90 scholars and up to $300K per year. We currently have a total of 39 students in the program and a $175K estimated budget, with scholarships of $4,000 per year for petrotechs. A Scholarship Endowment Fund (SEF) was established a few years ago to secure a more consistent source of funds in the future; an SEF status update will be provided at a later time.

Webinars and virtual events are less cost-intensive, provide a different experience than in-person events and require lower registration fees. The section offers reduced prices for MiTs and students. SPE volunteers dedicate their personal time and human energy to organize great technical events for members to participate from home. They seek out top industry speakers who also volunteer their time and expertise, at no cost, in support of SPE. The effort required to organize webinars is very similar to in-person events. The difference is the physical presence. This is what volunteering with SPE in unprecedented times looks like. I encourage our members to continue to register for events to support our hard-working volunteers and help raise funds for scholarships. In international news, Bloomberg reported that “Saudi Arabia cut pricing for oil sales in October." There’s a lot of speculation about what this means to the industry recovery. This is a reminder that the world is still recovering from the pandemic and its cascading effects on the industry. In the last few months, there was optimism that the oil price was steadily increasing and slowly stabilizing after the sharp decline in March. One way to describe the last few months is that the rate of change of the oil price curve was reducing over time, until September. This demonstrates the unpredictable nature of commodity prices and their high dependence on supply and demand forces. Within SPE-GCS, I am pleased to see that the section held many events in September, mostly virtual. This illustrates that the section is embracing the challenges we face and using technology and creativity to share technical content. I will highlight a few events this month: SPE Virtual ATCE 2020, drilling geomechanics training organized by the Continuing Education Committee; and the SPE Distinguished Lecturer presentation on fracture model calibration for conventional and unconventional rocks. You can find more information and registration details in the section events calendar. Until next month, Simeon

THEN & NOW OCTOBER 2001

Operators, including Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Suncor Inc., which operate existing Canadian oil sands projects report having a number of projects under development or on the drawing board worth an estimated $51 billion (CAD). These projects are expected to extend oil sands production from about 600,000 b/d to an expected 1.9 million b/d within a decade. Last month’s attack on the WTC is not forecast to significantly impact hydrocarbon demand, as economic growth is expected to be sluggish. Military demand, on the other hand, is expected to spike significantly.

Does this analyst report sound vaguely familiar..? "With numerous wells expected to be shut in and capacity coming online, 2009 is shaping up to be an ugly year in North America.” Reliance Industries Ltd., Mumbai, and Niko Resources Ltd., Calgary, begin a new chapter in India’s hydrocarbon production with the startup of the MA oil field in the Bay of Bengal. The MA oil field, India’s first deepwater hydrocarbon producing area, has become one of the world’s fastest greenfield deepwater developments.

THE REST OF THE YARN This month... Will McCarthy become the subject of a great Texas novel, or just fade away? Probably the best-known female novelist of mid-twentieth century America was Edna Ferber. She was a creature of effete New York literary salons, a witty, headstrong member of the Algonquin Round Table, and a lesbian, all of which made her an improbable chronicler of muscular, nouveau riche Texas. She had been famous since the mid-1920’s, when one of her early novels, “So Big,” won the Pulitzer Prize. Ferber had been mulling a novel about Texas since at least 1939, when she first toured the state. At that time, she found Texas too foreign, too outlandish, too big to easily grasp. There was a great American novel there, she decried, but not hers. “Let Michener write it,” she told a friend. All during the 1940’s, however, Texas called to her. Though Ferber was always vague about details, her decision to actually tackle a Texas novel coincided with the 1948-49 boom in stories about its new millionaires. “Texas,” she once explained, “was leaping out at one from the pages of books, plays, magazines, newspapers. The rest of the United States regarded it with a sort of fond consternation. It was

OCTOBER 2017

Fears of the impending collapse of the authoritarian regime of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro serve as a reminder of his coalitions with Cuba (military and security support), Russia (heavy oil development), and China (loans), and the puppet status of the Venezuelan leader. Cenovus Energy Inc., Calgary, agrees to sell its Palliser crude oil and natural gas assets in southeastern Alberta to a joint venture between privately held Torxen Energy and Schlumberger Ltd. for $1.3 billion (CAD) in cash. Calgary-based Torxen, which will be the operator, is led by President and Chief Executive Officer John Brannan, the former long-time chief operating officer of Cenovus.

This Texas represented a convulsion of nature, strange, dramatic, stupefying.” She was especially curious about Glenn McCarthy. During one of her several visits to Texas, the two were introduced. Neither ever spoke meaningfully about their meeting. There was no mistaking, however, that McCarthy would become the model for the tempestuous wildcatter Jett Rink, who sprang from the pages of the book Ferber decided to call “Giant.” “Giant” is the story of an oil and ranching family clearly modeled on the Kleberg clan, who ran the vast King Ranch. The Rink/McCarthy protagonist brings all the main characters together in the book’s early scenes for the massive opening of his “Conquistador Hotel” in the sprawling city of “Hermoso.” The book was released to immense sales in 1952, and four years later it was turned into a motion picture starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and a young actor named James Dean.

COMPUTER DONATION PROGRAM

SPE-GCS Partners with iEducateUSA and City of Houston to Support Texas Students In mid-March 2020, school districts throughout Texas started to conduct classes online and continued through the end of the school year. In mid-May, it was brought to our attention by iEducateUSA, a non-profit educational organization, and the City of Houston that there were many students in the greater Houston area that were unable to participate in virtual online learning because of a lack of a home computer. Without online access, these students would fall behind in their studies. The SPE-GCS thought this was an excellent opportunity to help our community. To date, 33 members and friends have responded to the need with 77 computers, from iMacs to other laptop brands. All computers were picked up from their homes or offices, cataloged and taken to Comp-U-Dopt, a non-profit

corporation. Comp-U-Dopt cleaned and refurbished the computers then loaded them with an operating system as well as educational apps. They distributed the computers to needy students within the greater Houston area via a lottery system. All donors received a document from Comp-U-Dopt noting their donation, which could be used for tax purposes. Three corporations also donated computers, including NOV (~540 computers), ConocoPhillips (~120 computers) and Baker Hughes (~25 computers). All of the computers will go to needy students throughout the Houston area. We thank all of you who have participated in the program for your generosity.

COMPLETIONS AND PRODUCTION Fracture Model Calibration for Conventional and Unconventional Rocks Fracture growth modeling has seen two dramatic changes over the last two decades. First, the completions industry found a way to economically stimulate unconventional rocks. Second, fracture modelers “got their eyes” through commercial development and proliferation of direct fracture diagnostics, such as micro-seismic fracture mapping. Direct observations from fracture mapping enabled calibration of fracture models, resulting in a roller coaster ride of changes to frac modelers’ understanding of how fractures grow. To explain these observations, modelers incorporated new physical mechanisms into their models. This lecture will show how model calibration has become a vital part of the fracture modeling process, creating ever more realistic fracture growth predictions and becoming a valuable tool in evaluating economic tradeoffs.

NORTHSIDE Freshwater Neutral – Managing Water Use and Giving Back to the Environment This presentation will focus on managing water use and giving back to the environment, including highlighting challenges, lessons and best practices encountered when companies implement efforts to become better stewards of freshwater resources. Specific case studies related to Southwestern Energy’s “Freshwater Neutral” initiative, achieved in 2016 within all operating divisions, will be reviewed. A small multi-disciplinary team evaluated all elements within the operational water life cycle, identifying cost-competitive ways to optimize the company’s freshwater usage. This reduced freshwater requirements by up to 30 percent in some operating areas and saved the operator over $20 million.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT Current Innovations in US Natural Gas Development Since 2010, US natural gas production has almost doubled, reaching 95 BCFD in 2019. This increase was driven in part by investments in the San Juan, DJ and Ark-La-Tex basins. The abundant supply ensured low energy prices domestically and fueled rising US Gulf Coast LNG exports. Despite this, early 2020 US natural gas prices fell to their lowest level in over 20 years due to COVID-19 demand destruction, challenging natural gas investors. In the face of these challenges, several innovative companies continue to create value by focusing on development efficiencies and production optimization. Please join us for a US natural gas panel featuring executives from three privately held companies, each with a successful track record of investing in upstream assets. To facilitate networking, there will be a virtual networking session first, followed by the panel.

WESTSIDE Using Multidisciplinary Data Gathering to Evaluate eXtreme Limited-Entry Completion Design This paper presents a case study of the successful implementation of XLE (eXtreme Limited-Entry) with interdisciplinary evaluation and validation. The case study resulted in significant improvements and cost reductions in the completion designs. XLE was implemented in two groups of wells in Williston Basin, ND. The paper presents a comprehensive evaluation of the completion diagnostic measurements and the subsequent integration of those measurements, with detailed geologic characterizations and "stage level" well performance evaluations. This multidisciplinary approach resulted in more reliable completion optimization decisions and a shorter cycle time from measurement to implementation.

RESERVOIR CO2 Foam Pilot in a West Texas Field: Design, Operation and Results This discussion will describe the design, implementation and results of a CO2 foam pilot in a mature CO2 flood in West Texas. The objective of the pilot was to demonstrate improved conformance/sweep efficiency of the CO2 foam over CO2 WAG injection. While changes in injection rate and injection profile confirmed the formation of strong foam near the wellbore and redistribution of fluids in the injectors, oil response was weak, with significant oil gain observed in one of the four patterns. The comprehensive monitoring program in this pilot provides new insights into effectiveness of CO2 foam in actual field applications. The results from this pilot may help to better screen and design future foam injection pilots.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Past Scholarship Winner: Judy Dalrymple Buie 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 Judy Dalrymple Buie's story:

"Receiving the SPEGCS scholarship inspired me to search for summer internships within the oil and gas industry, which put my college classes in context and effectively seeded my career path." I have been an SPE member for over 25 years. Receiving the SPE-GCS scholarship inspired me to search for summer internships within the oil and gas industry, which put my college classes in context and effectively seeded my career path. Coincidentally, my first "real job" in the industry was working in the same group with a woman who interviewed me for the SPE-GCS scholarship,

Gulf Coast Section

in the same building where the interview was conducted, where I then worked for eight years of my career! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the industry, from swing ropes onto platforms as a facility engineer in the GoM; falling in love with the subsurface as a reservoir engineer; managing fields through various life cycles; getting a bird's eye view of different businesses and exploring strategic options in corporate roles; stretching and growing in countless ways co-leading a startup company; doing a myriad of deals; learning new tools and perspectives with private equity exposure; and building and repositioning businesses through booms and busts. The highlight through it all has been partnering with smart, fun, hardworking people and teams along the way, including at ARCO, Vastar, BP, Newfield, RPM, KKR and many others; working inside E&P companies, side by side with private equity and management teams; and now, as I am enjoying board roles with private and public energy companies.

CAREER OVERVIEW • Active Board Director for Enerplus Corporation, Sundance Energy Inc., and FlowStream Vintage I Ltd • Oil and Gas Industry Advisor to KKR • Colorado School of Mines, BS, Petroleum Engineering

My advice to SPE-GCS scholarship students is to do college internships, always be curious and inquisitive about the business, and raise your hand to try new roles regularly. Constant learning and new exposure will enrich your experience, broaden your network and prepare you for bigger and better opportunities on your journey. Best wishes!

CONTINUING EDUCATION Coiled Tubing Operations & Advancements In this accelerated Coiled Tubing course, the attendees will learn about all aspects involving a coiled tubing operation including the equipment used, string materials used, key parameters affecting its life. It will also include a brief overview on the conventional applications such as clean outs, matrix stimulation and nitrogen pumping amongst others. The second half of the training will focus on today’s most widely used application, which is plug milling. The attendees will learn the correlation between well completion, string design, and bottom hole assembly, as well as the fluid types used. These key points will then be put into practice, as the course will allow students free access to job design case studies via a proprietary web based coiled tubing software. Key takeaways from this practical session of the course will be to fully understand the main two challenges faced today i.e. string fatigue and extended reach efficiency
