John Lee holds the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair at the University of Houston’s petroleum engineering program. Prior to this, Lee held the L.F. Peterson Chair in petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University. He was the former executive vice president of S.A. Holditch & Associates, where he specialized in reservoir engineering for unconventional gas reservoirs. He served as an academic engineering fellow with the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) in Washington during 2007–2008, and was a principal architect of the new SEC rules for reporting oil and gas reserves.

Prior to beginning is career in academia, Lee managed Exxon’s Major Fields Study Group. He has written many technical papers and three SPE textbooks: Well Testing, Gas Reservoir Engineering, and Pressure Transient Testing. Lee is a Distinguished Member of SPE, a member of the US National Academy of Engineering, and the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.




Full Description
REGISTRATION COMING SOON:  http://www.spe.org/training/courses/FPE.php 
 

This course teaches the skills and understanding needed to forecast production and estimate reserves in unconventional (ultra-low permeability) gas reservoirs. Although the course emphasizes gas shale and tight gas formations, some of the material also applies to oil reservoirs. You’ll also learn the basic theories that describe how fluids move through a reservoir, as well as some of the most common drilling and completion techniques for recovering them.

Why You Should Attend

There are various ways to forecast production and estimate the size of unconventional gas reservoirs.  You’ll learn the strengths and weaknesses of each system and how to develop reliable forecasts in this course.

Who Should Attend

The course is for engineers and geoscientists who are interested in learning how to evaluate unconventional reservoirs.

Special Requirements

Attendees must bring a laptop to class.
