Ernie Brown, Advisor for Stimulation and Production services, Stimulation Domain Technology Director for Schlumberger, is currently based in Sugar Land, Texas.  Beginning his career in 1979 with Dowell as a field engineer, he has held a variety of technical positions focused on reservoir stimulation and production in various locations throughout the world.  Additionally he has held positions in both research and engineering, holds 18 patents, has co-authored over 25 technical publications, and has contributed to three reference books relating to well stimulation and completions.  He holds a degree in geology from Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, Colorado.


Full Description
 
Successfully Stimulating Complex Carbonate Reservoirs
 
  
For nearly 80 years, stimulating carbonate reservoirs has been routine and deemed successful but often involved little more than placing acid across the face of the formation.   With approximately half of the world's proven reserves of oil and gas in carbonate or fractured reservoirs, it is apparent that new ideas and technologies are required to help increase both production and overall recovery from these complex reservoirs.  New approaches are being utilized for better petrophysical models in carbonates and this information is leading to improved stimulation methods.  This presentation focuses on the key developments in stimulation that target carbonate reservoirs and the appropriate completion methodologies required in these highly complex and heterogeneous reservoirs.
