With the recent emergence of horizontal
formations such as the Wolfcamp, Bone
Springs and Cline, operators
have been forced to re-evaluate their exploitation strategy for Permian wells.
Hosting a multi-layered and multi-reservoir production environment, the Permian
remains one of the most unique basins in North America and, with an
unparalleled ability to continually produce high volumes, the basin’s long-term
production capabilities remain indisputable. The questions surrounding the
Permian now are not in its reserve quantities or ability to produce, but in how
to optimize production, reduce recovery
costs and maximize profits.
Basin Completions Congress 2012 will be the first event to break the
Midland & Delaware Basins down by the hottest horizontal and vertical
plays, to derive optimum drilling and completions techniques, drive down costs,
and improve the overall economics of wells. It will also provide a full
cost-benefit analysis of horizontal vs. vertical wells to answer one of the biggest questions to date: What is the
most economic type of well to drill and complete in the Permian?
Over two packed days, E&P executives
and experts from the most active operators in the Permian will be coming to
present their latest results and insights and deliver solutions on the
Wolfcamp, Bone Spring & Cline
- Identifying the very latest techniques used to drill these lateral lengths
- Analyzing what horizontal completions and frac designs are being used by various operators
- Examining the cost of these horizontal wells vs. the rate of recovery being seen
- Improving the overall economics of a horizontal well in the Permian
Wolfberry, Wolfbone & Wolftoka
- Deriving the interval depth to which operators are drilling their verticals and the zonal contributions they are seeing from each extra interval drilled
- Analyzing the type of frac fluids, frac sizes and pumping volumes producer’s are using to complete the wells
- Deducing the extra costs involved in frac design variations to determine if there have been any significant enhancements in production relative to costs
The above is a short summary of the
presentations being delivered at the Permian
Basin Completions Congress 2012; the full two-day agenda can be seen here.
