Description

Wow! What a crazy year 2020 was! As we always do, our industry continued to innovate and figure out a way to provide clean, affordable, and reliable energy to the masses. However, it’s been more difficult than ever to keep up with what’s going on due to travel and gathering restrictions. That’s why the SPE-GCS Completion & Production, Northside, Permian Basin, Reservoir, and Westside Study Groups have teamed up for a webinar that gives an update on the pulse of unconventional. We have speakers from Chevron, Shale Specialists, Stim-Lab, and Schlumberger speaking on topics like high-viscosity friction reducers, depletion and mitigation of offset wells, optimal well spacing, and field development. Join this special interest study group webinar from wherever you are on April 21st, 2021 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM CST(Houston).

Scott Lapierre graduated with a BSc. in Geology from the University of South Alabama in 1995 and began his oil career working offshore as an LWD field engineer in the Deepwater GOM. In 2005 he joined ConocoPhillips and became a petrophysicist just a few years before the gas shale revolution erupted in 2006 and started working on interpretation techniques for quantifying and mapping the hydrocarbon content of shales.


In 2009 Scott moved to Pioneer Natural Resources to help lead their transition into liquids-rich shales where he further refined his hydrocarbon quantification and mapping techniques to include integration of source rock geochemistry into petrophysics. Additionally, his work on multiple core analyses process corrections further enabled key uncertainty reduction in Oil-in-Place (OIP) determinations.


After several exploration successes and one failure, Scott discovered a key limitation to the reservoir drive mechanism primarily responsible for oil recovery from shales, and in doing so, stumbled upon the ability to fundamentally pre-determine and map recovery factor absent of production data. Combining accurate OIP with maps of available recovery factor led to unique illuminations of Recoverable Oil-in-Place. After failing to gain interest in his discovery Scott resigned in 2014 and co-founded PCORE Exploration (I), a private equity-backed company focused on leasing and proving-up ‘core’ acreage in the Midland Basin.


After successfully divesting PCORE’s primary asset to Parsley Energy for $150MM in 2016, Scott has been consulting under the banner of Shale Specialists LLC where he uses his 8-year old “secret” to help operators determine optimal well spacing and completion intensity to maximize per-well, per-dollar, and per-acre recoveries
