Ingrain's Dr. Joel Walls has been invited to present at the AAPG's Geosciences Technology Workshop on Sweet Spots, Reservoir Compartmentalization, and Connectivity taking place August 6-7 in Houston.

Defining and identifying “sweet spots,” along with understanding compartmentalization and connectivity of the reservoirs, are increasingly important in all fields, ranging from new shale and carbonates plays to mature conventional fields, both onshore and offshore.This workshop contains presentations and discussions of new technologies, techniques, and lessons learned to optimize exploration in compartmentalized reservoirs and effectively exploit mature fields. The presentations bring together technology, science, and case studies to provide useful, useable information that can ultimately improve the economics of the fields.

AAPG GTWs deliver up-to-date technical content to AAPG members and the industry. Their venues address “How are we doing it now?” through an examination of the latest practices illustrated with field case studies and examples. Their overriding focus is on the sharing of information among individuals knowledgeable in a topic in a highly interactive environment.

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.
