Containing 1.7 billion barrels of tight oil and 4,995 trillion cubic feet of shale gas yet to be recovered, the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin holds huge revenue opportunity for oil companies, even in the low price crude climate; so long as production and artificial lift costs are managed properly.

It is now down to Production VPs, Managers and Engineers to ensure reserves are recovered at the lowest possible cost and with limited well downtime to keep strong production flowing throughout the lifetime of the well.

Current commodity prices are of course the main driving force behind cost-centric strategies, however optimizing production will increase margins even more dramatically when prices rebound.

REDUCING LIFT COSTS WHILE MAXIMIZING RECOVERY: CONGRESS DEDICATED PURELY TO PRODUCTION PROFESSIONALS

The 2015 edition of this operator led congress focuses on artificial lift and secondary recovery techniques across the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. This year’s congress hones in on overcoming the WCSB-specific challenges of high gas rates, H2S, paraffin wax and sand production. Ultimately driving this year’s agenda is cost and new technologies all delivered by key E&P operators in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.

Key cost-reduction strategies being discussed by E&P speakers include:

  • Identifying in which areas and under what circumstances switching lift types will help maximize per-barrel margins during the period of low oil prices
  • Identifying cost saving opportunities at different stages of production, from lift to chemical treatment
  • Identifying which production and lift technologies are helping ensure maximum drainage at lowest cost and consequently, high profit wells

Case studies demonstrating how to achieve these goals will be delivered on the following key topic areas:

ARTIFICIAL LIFT SELECTION : Comparing PCPs, ESPs, jet pumps and gas lift systems to establish which have the greatest potential to decrease capital costs whilst guaranteeing desired production rates

PRODUCTION FACILITY DESIGN : Evaluating best design practices for multi-well pad oil production facilities in the WCSB that are being shown reduce both capital and long term operating cost

DUVERNAY CASE STUDY : Presenting a case study on how an operator has managed to maximize recovery rates in the Duvernay while minimizing failure rates and downtime

WATER FLOODING : Showcasing a successful water flood pilot to establish if and under which circumstances the return on capital justifies the investment

REDUCING FAILURE RATES & DOWNTIME : Examining optimal best practices for mitigating key risks to production including gas, H2S, sand, scaling and paraffin wax to minimize downtime and reduce well costs

NACMF 2015 Spring Session @ Hilton Garden Inn-Southpointe | Canonsburg | Pennsylvania | United States

The North American Coalbed Methane Forum (NACBMF) was established to advance mine safety and to increase production of coalbed methane as a worldwide energy resource. The Forum provides an opportunity for an exchange of information on coalbed methane research and technology between the public and private sectors. Forum participants can share practical experience in the development and use of coalbed methane and present related information on the legal, environmental and related issues, which accompany the production of coalbed methane. The NACBMF is governed by a Board of Directors and consists of representatives from the coalbed methane industry, coal and gas industries, gas marketing and service industries, and representatives from the legal, government, and education communities.

6th Annual DUG East Conference & Exhibition

Unprecedented Growth Creates Powerful Opportunities

A record-breaking 4,200+ attendees packed DUG East last year…and there is still room for growth! The massive Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays continue to drive new opportunities throughout the Appalachian region. Take a deep dive into all of the technologies and strategies that leading operators are utilizing to tap into the region’s vast resources.

Biggest producer speaker lineup yet!

Hear directly from executives at CONSOL EnergyMagnum ResourcesStone EnergyAnadarkoTalisman Energy USA, and more! Walk away with actionable insights and best practices that you can utilize immediately at your job.

Regional Highlights

Unconventional plays across the Appalachian region are leading to unprecedented resource abundance for U.S. consumers, and these plays are increasing in global importance as well. Experts now predict the Marcellusshale could rank as the biggest natural gas field in the world, a remarkable feat of American ingenuity.

The implications for local citizens are profound. In the past two years, Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale Impact Fee has returned $406 million to the Commonwealth, and the impact of Ohio’s Utica shale is just beginning to be felt as operators test its vast potential.

Shale plays coveredMarcellus and Utica

In 2013, DUG East reached a new milestone by uniting 4,200+ attendees and over 300 exhibitors – a record 30% growth over previous years. Be sure to secure your seat for the 2014 DUG East Conference & Exhibition coming up June 3-5!
