Permian: Wolfcamp Shale in the Permian Basin
The Wolfcamp Shale in southern Midland Basin is a world class source rock located in peak oil generation and early gas generation window. Its storage space includes matrix porosity, natural fractures, and organic materials. The mineral composition and lithology are similar to the Eagle Ford Shale, with a high density of natural fractures. The oil and gas in place is estimated to be more than 100 MMBoe per section, 640 acres. Due to the extent of Wolfcamp Shale coverage, it could potentially become one of the largest hydrocarbon discoveries in U.S. This talk will discuss discovery, pilot evaluation and potential development concept associated with Wolfcamp oil shale resource play.
