Kent Perry is Vice President, Onshore Programs for RPSEA a research program targeting unconventional gas in the United States.


 


For RPSEA, he has responsibility for planning and managing a research program, with the overall objective of developing new technology for enhanced recovery of unconventional gas in the lower-48 United States


 


Past experience includes thirty years of natural gas engineering and gas production responsibilities including; gas storage engineering for Northern Illinois Gas Co., production engineering with Kansas-Nebraska Natural Gas Co., and, exploration and production for Michigan Energy Resources Co.


 


He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Petroleum Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.


 


He is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and a past SPE Distinguished Lecturer on the topic of tight gas sands in the United States. 


 

He has participated in National Petroleum Council studies on the potential for natural gas in the United States and has authored several papers on low permeability natural gas resources and hydraulic fracturing.

Full Description
Abstract:
RPSEA is conducting a research experiment on hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus shale with a consortium of researchers led by Gas Technology Institute.   The well wells are Marcellus shale wells drilled by Range Resources.
 
The presentation will review the drilling and completion of 7 horizontal wells from a single pad and then fracture treated with approximately 100 treatments.  Downhole microseismic, surface seismic, geologic research and other information regarding the project will be discussed.
 
Additionally, RPSEA has an ongoing research portfolio of over 30 projects addressing unconventional gas.  An overview of those projects addressing well completion and hydraulic fracturing will be provide.
