SPE-GCS Young Professionals would like to invite you to a technical session;

 

Perforating Design Impacts on Hydraulic Fracturing

 

The presentation will cover perforating techniques and designs; and how they affect hydraulic fracturing in horizontal well completions. Examples of limited entry designs and  current thoughts on appropriate values to use as inputs for coefficients of friction and perforation erosion will be discussed. Fracture diagnostic tests used to evaluate perforating designs will be presented. Current and emerging perforation technologies will be discussed. Case histories comparing different perforating designs and techniques will be presented, as well as ways to reduce well completion costs taking these things into consideration.

 

 

***Lunch will be provided.***

Phil holds a degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Wyoming (1979). He has drilling, completion, and reservoir engineering and supervisory experience during his career with Marathon Oil Company in the Rockies, Alaska, Gulf of Mexico and International operations. The majority of his career was focused on providing technical assistance to drilling, completion and production engineers on a global basis with a particular emphasis on developing new technology with industry partners. He holds approximately fifty (50) patents and had the lead role in developing and licensing developed technology to various service companies Phil is a past SPE Distinguished Lecturer, past Chair of API’s Perforating Subcommittee and a member of the API Explosives Safety Subcommittee. In 2012, Phil received the SPE Gulf Coast Regional Completions Optimization and Technology Award. In 2015, he won World Oil’s Innovative Thinker Award. He has authored or co-authored at least thirty (30) technical papers and journal articles for the SPE and major industry publications. He is one of the inventors of the propellant technology (StimGun® assembly, StimTube™ tool), and the patent holder for Casing Conveyed Perforating Systems (EXcape® Completion Process). Phil played a major role in advancing the use of RFID technology for well completions and PowrPerf Extreme Overbalance TCP methods now being utilized in the industry. Since retiring from Marathon in 2013, Phil has been assisting GEODynamics with new technology development (such as Composites, FracTrap™, and FracIQ™ / SandIQ™ charges) along with the step rate analysis/completion optimization aspects of the technologies. Currently, he is leading a project on proppant transport as it relates to fracturing. His primary role remains to provide the company with the Operators’ perspective. He works as a project coordinator between the operators and GEODynamics, as well as assists with technical sales.
