|Geomechanics for Heavy Oil - HOGM|
|Evaluating and Developing Heavy Oil Resources - HOED|
|Field Study-Heavy Oil Resources - HOFS|
|Horizontal Well Placement in Heavy Oil Reservoirs - HOWP|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Jeff Webber
|Conventional hydrocarbon resources are becoming more and more elusive with each passing year. Many oil and gas companies are reverting to heavy oil or bitumen as 'Resource' plays to be exploited. Often, the technical challenge lies in how best to extract the reserves. Optimal placement of a horizontal or deviated wellbore can impact the economics significantly. This course uses real examples to demonstrate some of the challenges faced, and progressive group and team exercises to learn the skills needed to plan and coordinate the geological aspects of horizontal drilling.|
Geoscientists, technologists, and/or junior engineers involved in planning and implementing deviated or horizontal drilling programs.
You Will Learn:
MR. JEFF WEBBER is a professional geologist with 17 years of progressive experience in process improvement, project planning, and field operations coordination for multiple concurrent vertical and horizontal drilling projects. He was worked for Petro-Canada Oil and Gas, PanCanadian Petroleum and is currently Consulting Operations Geologist for J. Webber Solutions Ltd., where he has provided services for Imperial Oil Ltd., Birchwood Resources Inc., Husky Oil Inc. and Imperial Oil Ltd. He is a member and permit holder with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta, as well as a member of the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists, Canadian Heavy Oil Association and AAPG. Mr. Webber was awarded the Exceptional Contributor Award by Petro-Canada Oil and Gas in 2006 for his suggested changes to work and data flows within Petro-Canada's bitumen core analysis process, which resulted in smoother data flow, a 40% reduction in turnaround time and final project completion three months ahead of target. He has a BS and MS from the University of Regina, both in Geology.
