George E. King is a Registered Professional Engineer in Oklahoma and Texas with over 43 years oilfield experience since starting with Amoco Production Research in 1971. His technical background includes basic research on energized fracturing, production and fracturing chemicals, acidizing, asphaltenes, perforating cleanup, well integrity and completions, complex formations (North Sea chalk, San Juan coal, Alaskan and Canadian heavy/viscous oil, US tight gas, GoM Deep Water, and Niobrara shale), unconventional resources in the Barnett Shale , Horn River Shale, Eagle Ford Shale, Fayetteville Shale, Gothic Shale) sand control, low pressure gas well operations and applications work on coiled tubing, cutoff, formation damage and well repair operations.


Technical accomplishments include 71 technical papers, a book on completions and workovers, Distinguished Lecturer on foam fracturing for the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) during 1985-86, and a Completions Course Lecturer on horizontal wells for the SPE Short Course series in 1999.  Industry positions held include Technical Chairman of the 1992 SPE Annual Fall Meeting, past API subcommittee chair on perforating, eleven years adjunct professor at the University of Tulsa (teaching senior level and graduate credit well completions and fracturing courses at night), and numerous SPE committees on forums, paper selection committees and Applied Technology workshops. Awards include the Amoco Vice President’s Award for technology from Amoco in 1997, API service award in 1994, the 2004 SPE Production Operations Award and the 2012 Engineer of the Year award from the Houston Region of the Society of Professional Engineers.


He is currently Distinguished Engineering Advisor at Apache Corporation. He earned a bachelors degree in Chemistry from Oklahoma State, and a bachelors in Chemical Engineering and a Masters in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tulsa.

Full Description

The development of technology within the petroleum industry has encountered few time periods more rich than the last fifteen years where geology, geophysics and petrophysics have merged with engineering to solve the mysteries of production from unconventional resources.  This talk will introduce some of these development drivers and then focus on the latest developments of fracturing and resource evaluation.
