ABSTRACT of Presentation

THIS REGULAR GENERAL MEETING LUNCHEON EVENT WILL BE HELD IN PERSON AND ALSO VIA WEBINAR. TO REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR, PLEASE RETURN TO THE EVENTS PAGE FOR THE WEBINAR LINK 

In recent years, mechanical specific energy (MSE) has been used to assess mechanical properties of rocks. It is further known that changes in reservoir pressure will also influence MSE. A new process was developed that analyzes a modified mechanical specific energy, and identifies anomalous increases in MSE, which represent drilling through a depleted fracture often caused during the fracture and production of an offset parent well.  This talk will describe the process and discuss several case studies  where fractures were successfully validated with this process using nothing but standard drilling data, without the use of any additional tools being run in the wellbore. This new revolutionary technique will provide significant impact, not only in designing completions for parent-child well pairs, but will also further the understanding of far field fracture effects such as the extent of fracture extension, depletion around a fracture, and implications for well spacing

The image above shows how to access the valet parking area at the new location of the Petroleum Club. Enter from Milam Street and exit onto Louisiana Street.  Parking fee for this valet parking is $15. Be sure to get discount parking sticker at registration table if you use this valet parking service.
 
Surface parking lots are available to the south of the TOTAL Plaza building (between this building and the former EXXON Building), including one surface lot adjacent to the TOTAL Plaza Building - pay at meter (cost ~ $9).  Other surface lots in the area cost $8 - $9 and they frequently are full by mid-morning.
 
Parking is also available in the Hyatt Regency Hotel parking garage across the street.  Prices vary depending on time in the garage.  Cost for 2 hours of parking is $12.  Parking is also available via valet at the Louisiana Street entrance of the hotel.  Cost is about $10.
