May 14-16 | 3rd Annual Developing Unconventional Oil Conference & Exhibition | Denver
The 2012 DUO Conference & Exhibition will focus on the geology, technology and economics of oil-resource plays. In the U.S., such plays as the Bakken have contributed to a remarkable growth in production and in proved reserves. Leading operators, geoscientists and energy economists will discuss trends and deliver their insights on this rapidly changing sector. Find out where the action is and what new plays are emerging.
Today’s technologies allow profitable extraction of oil from reservoirs that were previously non-commercial. The DUO conference provides a high-level forum for companies to spread their success stories and talk about lessons learned. It is a perfect opportunity to expose investors, analysts, engineers, geoscientists, landmen, business development professionals and more to the complexities of oil-resource plays.
Dr. Joel Walls is a geophysicist focused on R&D, and commercialization of advanced technology products and services for E&P. While completing his doctoral work in the Stanford Rock Physics Project in 1982, Dr. Joel Walls co-founded Petrophysical Services Inc. Later, he served as director, Dallas advanced technology center for Core Lab until 1990 when he formed the software company PetroSoft Inc. In 1998, PetroSoft became Rock Solid Images and there he served in several executive positions. In 2010, Walls joined Ingrain where he is responsible for developing and commercializing services focused on shale and other unconventional reservoirs. He was a co-founder and first president of the Society of Core Analysts and is also a member of SEG, SPE and SPWLA. He has authored many publications and holds two U.S. patents in seismic reservoir characterization. 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.
Joel will be participating on the Rock Physics Panel taking place during the Technology Workshop on Monday, May 14 at 1:30pm.
