George E. King is a Registered Professional Engineer with over 40 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 60 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, and the 2004 SPE Production Operations Award.  He was selected as the 2012 Engineer of the Year from Greater Houston Regions's Texas Society of Professional Engineers.  He maintains a web site with free downloads of petroleum engineering educational materials at www.GEKEngineering.com.

 

He has a BS in Chemistry from Oklahoma State in 1972, a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Tulsa in 1976, and an MS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tulsa in 1982.

Full Description

Has the brute force of fracturing taken recovery of tight oil as far as it can go?  Is a new approach using production enhancing chemicals and processes ready to take the next step? Mr. King will present some new and unusual ideas proposed as the next step in the evolution of tight oil production.
