March 9-11 | AAPG-STGS Geosciences Technology - 4th Annual Eagle Ford Shale Workshop

The productive extent of the Eagle Ford has expanded, thanks to new information and understanding of the factors that make the formation producible in a particular prospect or location. The same is true of adjacent formations such as the Buda and the Austin Chalk, along with Cretaceous extensions of the Eagle Ford, which extend from the Eaglebine to the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.

This workshop explores the productive limits and sweet spots in the Eagle Ford and adjacent formations, and it reviews the latest finding with respect to reservoir optimization.

The Eagle Ford is by no means uniform, and understanding just why, where, and how it produces is of critical importance as we enter new phases of the exploration and development. Join us to learn how to best identify areas of differential enrichment and accessible porosity, and exactly how to use new technologies to detect fracture networks, sweet spots, ideal pressure, to develop effective drilling and completion programs within existing plays, and to push the frontier in the Mexican equivalents of the Eagle Ford. Learn how new drilling and completing techniques are being used to reduce costs and to optimize production.

Dr. Joel Walls is a geophysicist and entrepreneur with extensive experience in the research, development, launch, and sale of advanced technology products and services for oil and gas exploration and production. While completing his doctoral work for Dr. Amos Nur in the Stanford Rock Physics Project in 1982, he co-founded Petrophysical Services Inc., which was acquired by Litton Core Laboratories in 1984. He served as Director of the Dallas Advanced Technology Center for Core Lab until 1990 when he formed the software company PetroSoft Inc., in San Jose, CA. PetroSoft merged with two other software companies to form Rock Solid Images (RSI) in 1998. He served in several executive positions, including VP of Business Development and VP of Technology. RSI was acquired by Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping (OHM) in 2007.He then served as VP, Chief Petrophysicist, and Shale Venture Leader for Object Reservoir from 2008 to 2010.Dr. Walls joined Ingrain in 2010 as Director, Technical Resources for Unconventional Reservoirs with responsibility for developing and commercializing services focused on shale and other unconventional reservoirs.


Joel was a co-founder and the first president of the Society of Core Analysts, and is also a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), and Society of Petrophysicists & Well Log Analysts (SPWLA). He is the author of many publications in various geophysical and petrophysical journals, and holds a U.S. patent in the field of seismic reservoir characterization.
