August 12-14 | Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC)

URTeC_Header_2-3_URTeC_Logo_726w.gif

 

URTeC was developed with an industry advisory group — professionals managing how wells are drilled and how plays are developed every day. Representatives from Anadarko, Apache, Chesapeake, ConocoPhillips, Devon, ExxonMobil-XTO, Schlumberger, Shell, SM Energy, Statoil and others spoke about the importance of geologists, geophysicists, engineers and business managers working together — and understanding each other. They encouraged SPE, AAPG and SEG to collaborate on URTeC to facilitate that learning and understanding.

URTeC’s objectives are to:

  • provide a high-quality and peer-reviewed science and technology experience
  • create a premier forum for technical exchange between vendors and users
  • identify and solve E&P problems
  • raise the competency of all petroleum professionals
  • elevate the image of petroleum professionals and the societies in all communities

An Industry Advisory Committee will oversee the design, planning and development of URTeC to ensure it meets the needs of your technical staff, as well as the expectations of your business and the industry at large.

Proven reserves:

  • Collectively, SPE, SEG and AAPG members exceed 170,000 professionals in more than 120 countries
  • The three societies review and publish thousands of presentations annually, fueling the most comprehensive collections of E&P technical resources anywhere
  • SPE, SEG and AAPG already partner in highly successful events (OTC, IPTC)
  • The interdisciplinary program committee comprises engineers, geophysicists, and geologists

 

Ingrain will be presenting two papers at the conference:

Tuesday,  August 13, 1:55PM: Theme 3: Shale Plays III: Going Global - New Unconventional Workflows, Integrated Sweet Spot Assessments and Case Studies, Relative Permeability in a Shale Formation Using Digital Rock Physics

Wednesday, August 14, 11:15AM: Theme 11: Pore Scale Imaging and Computation, Micro-Scale Characterization of the Eagle Ford Formation Using SEM Methods and Digital Rock Modeling

Visit Ingrain in booth #1145!

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.
