Full Description

 

Speaker: Doug Brooks, Chief Executive Officer, Aurora Oil & Gas Ltd.

Host: Danny Rathan, Managing Director, Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co.

Join us at the Four Seasons Hotel as Doug Brooks will update us on Aurora’s experiences in the oil/condensate window of the Eagle Ford shale from both an operated and non-operated point of view. The popular format of a Business & Social Networking hour, with complimentary Hors D’ Oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an hour-long program, will begin at 5:00 PM in the Mezzanine.

The Karnes/Atascosa area of the Eagle Ford shale trend has been a hotbed of activity due to its high productivity and large liquid yields. Aurora Oil & Gas, a long time non-operator in the area, recently joined the ranks of Marathon and EOG with its first foray as the operator of its own wells. What were the key learnings that underpinned Aurora’s recent decision to become an operator? Were there any unexpected issues to tackle? What are the unique challenges to having a position that straddles the oil/condensate boundary in the Eagle Ford? What are the additional opportunities provided by the adjacent Austin Chalk and Pearsall formations? What is Aurora’s appraisal plan for testing the producibility of these secondary horizons over its position? What development synergies can be exploited between all three horizons? What are the midstream challenges and opportunities for a new operator in the area?

We welcome you to join us for this informative discussion, as well as the fellowship and networking of the popular Social Hour at 5:00 PM.
