ABSTRACT OF PRESENTATION

THIS REGULAR GENERAL MEETING LUNCHEON EVENT WILL BE HELD IN PERSON AND ALSO VIA WEBINAR. TO REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR, PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK:  https://www.spegcs.org/events/6607/

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reservoir Drill-In Fluids (RDF) have made an impressionable mark in the past decade despite the inception of the concept well over 20 years ago.  As the targets for increased and efficient production using RDFs have been realized over a wide range of applications, the development has not gone without challenges related to significant upturns and downturns in the business environment.   This presentation is focused on using case history examples to review fluids development and engineering efforts that have driven RDF technology forward.  

Determining the right information in regard to reservoir characteristics is required to identify the best fit for purpose solution for successful deployment of Drill- In Fluid technology.  Equivalent circulating density (ECD) restrictions, wellbore stability, and near-wellbore damage to reservoir are some of the key technical challenges that have faced open hole completions in the past decade.   To meet these challenges, a host of laboratory tests and field procedures have been designed to manage the drilling of the well and maximize productivity. 

Looking forward, the presentation will explore new opportunities to achieve increased production with lower carbon footprint using RDFs and continue to develop a broader range of successful applications.

The image above shows how to access the club parking area at the new location of the Petroleum Club. Enter from Milam Street and exit onto Louisiana Street.  Parking fee paid at central meter outside building entrance via credit card. Valet parking is also available - a $10 discount sticker is available at the registration table.  
 
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.
