HGS Applied Geoscience Mudrocks Conference

Ingrain will be the Gold Sponsor at the 2011 Annual HGS Applied Geoscience Conference taking place February 7 & 8, 2011.  Attendees of the conference, which is being sponsored by the Houston Geological Society, can expect to interact and learn applied techniques from knowledgeable unconventional reservoir characterization specialists on reservoir and system characterization for Gulf Coast region shale gas/oil reservoirs and learn about reservoir characterization advances of multiple targets, including the Haynesville / Bossier System.
 
Ingrain's Director of Unconventional Technology Joel Walls will be making a presentation discussing digital rock physics in Eagle Ford shale at the conference being held in the Woodlands.

Director of Unconventional Technology


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.



Dr. Walls holds an M.S. and Ph.D. in geophysics from Stanford University, and a B.S. in physics from Texas A&M University, Commerce.
