Feb 27-29 | AAPG GTW: Geoscience Technology Workshops

New Directions in Carbonates

New enhanced drilling techniques (geosteering in horizontal wells) combined with new technologies and a better understanding of how to economically produced hydrocarbons in carbonates have revitalized exploration for and development of carbonate reservoirs.

Presentations will discuss different types of porosity, and the processes that both enhance and inhibit reservoir productivity. In addition, permeability issues are also addressed, and the new technologies and techniques that allow a closer and more detailed analysis of both permeability and porosity, with careful attention paid to drilling fluids and completions (including hydraulic fracturing and waterfloods).

Join AAPG to learn and discuss new and revitalized plays, new technologies, and case studies / experiences involving the Mississippian in Oklahoma and Kansas, the Permian Basin, new carbonates in the Texas Panhandle and North Texas, and more. The workshop crosses the disciplines and features presentations involving engineering, geology, and geophysics.

Ingrain's Chief Scientist, Avrami Grader, will be presenting a Reservoir Characterization case study on Tuesday, February 28th at 3pm.

Dr. Avrami Grader is an expert in multi-phase flow in porous media and formerly a professor at PennState in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering. Dr. Grader’s research focused on two- and three-phase flow in porous media, transient pressure analysis with its effect on well testing and on reservoir engineering water influx problems, and multi-phase flow dynamics in the near wellbore domain including wellbore mechanics. He has provided consulting services in the field of X-ray CT imaging and image processing and analysis, including work in Germany, Brazil and the U.S. Dr. Grader holds a Ph.D. in petroleum engineering from Stanford University and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers of AIME. He also is author or co-author of 45 referred articles and/or published bound proceedings.

Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the world-wide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.

Currently the world's largest professional geological society with over 30,000 members, AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public.

AAPG supports a code of ethics for professional geologists to assure employers and clients of the integrity of its members.

The Association is guided by officers and a House of Delegates elected annually. The organization's programs are administered by an Executive Director and staff located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
